If you have decided that weight loss surgery is the ideal solution for you, there are several options. At Batash Medical, we believe the decision to undergo a bariatric, or weight loss procedure, is a deeply personal one. That is why we would like to enlighten you about what to expect regarding weight loss with endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty.
How Much Weight Can I Lose?
How much weight you lose depends on how committed you are to your new lifestyle. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is not a magic bullet that will melt away your excess body fat. It is a tool to help you change your eating habits so you can lose weight successfully. Results vary greatly.
The Many Benefits of Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty
There are several benefits of opting for endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty. One of the most significant is the success rate for long-term weight loss is significant. It may take you longer than you would like to lose your excess weight, but that weight is very likely to stay off once you lose it.
Furthermore, the improvement to your health and quality of life cannot be ignored. You may find other obesity-related conditions treated, such as hypertension, diabetes, and sleep apnea.
When you look good, you feel good. It’s that simple. After you undergo endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and begin to experience the benefits that it can provide, the benefits will only extend into every other area of your life. You’ll have more self-confidence and be more willing to get out and make the most of your days. This benefit cannot be overlooked.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Generally, to be a good candidate for endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, you should have a BMI (body mass index) of at least 30. If you have a BMI greater than 30 and suffer from other obesity-related illnesses, like sleep apnea, diabetes, or hypertension, you may be a good candidate for the procedure. The ideal candidate has tried other methods to lose weight, such as medications and changes to diet and activity level, without success. People who are not good candidates tend to have certain conditions like an uncontrolled psychiatric illness or an inability to understand the results of the procedure.
