The first question we usually get from people who are looking for weight loss solutions is “What can I do to lose weight when nothing else has worked?”, and the second question is “How fast will I lose weight with the bariatric procedure?”. Today we want to talk about the results that can be expected after the ESG procedure and provide you with endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty before & after photos as well as our patients’ testimonials.
To fully understand how a certain solution will work for you or how fast you will lose weight as a result, you must honestly look at how much of a commitment you are willing to make to the process. It is also important to understand how your current condition came to be to learn appropriate adjustments. If you are currently struggling with obesity and weight loss you are not alone.
Maintaining a healthy weight is a struggle for many people and as a result, record levels of obesity have been reached in the United States. According to Medical News Today, 36% of adults in the U.S. are currently higher weight.
When our bodies are not at their ideal weight, they function poorly, often resulting in health issues, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Sometimes, diet and exercise alone may not be sufficient for significant weight loss. In the past, individuals had limited options which involved invasive surgery. However, medical weight loss has evolved significantly, and now a procedure known as Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is gaining popularity due to its successful outcomes.
What is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)?
Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG), also known as endosleeve, has become increasingly popular for its minimally invasive approach and effective weight loss results. Essentially, the procedure involves suturing a portion of the stomach to restrict food intake. Unlike traditional surgeries, ESG does not require external incisions as the stomach is accessed through the throat. This reduces complications and speeds up recovery time considerably.
How Much Weight Can I Lose With ESG?
ESG can aid in substantial weight loss, but it demands a dedicated commitment to a healthier lifestyle. To attain optimal weight loss and lasting effects, it is imperative to make enduring modifications by adopting a nutritious diet and engaging in regular exercise.
Most patients experience about a 20-23% loss in their total body weight after having the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty procedure.
How Fast Will I Lose Weight After Endosleeve?
Normally, patients who have the ESG procedure lose weight fairly quickly in the first three months due to the restricted diet and reduced stomach size. The typical patient loses about 10% of their total body weight during the 3 months post-ESG, and then, approximately another 10-13% over the next 9 months. Of course, results vary from patient to patient, and they also depend on the lifestyle changes made during this time.
