ReShape Duo Balloon

ReShape Duo® is placed in your stomach in less than half an hour during an outpatient appointment. During the procedure you are put under ‘conscious sedation.’ This means instead of a general anaesthetic, you stay reasonably aware of your surroundings but do not feel pain or anxiety.

A small camera (an endoscope) is guided into the stomach through the mouth. The camera then helps guide the placement of the un-inflated dual balloons. The balloons are then carefully filled with saline (salt water). They stay in place for six months. You can go home on the same day as the procedure.

Unlike surgery – which involves incisions, stitches and scarring – the balloons do not change the size or shape of your stomach. They just replace the space where food would normally be.

Removing ReShape Duo®

After six months, during a similar outpatient procedure to the one described above, the balloons are carefully drained and the deflated dual balloon is taken back out through the mouth.
