What To Expect One Year After ESG

An epidemic is defined as the widespread occurrence of a disease that affects a significant number of individuals in a community, population, or geographic area. A pandemic is a type of epidemic that occurs when a disease spreads across multiple countries or continents.

Obesity is a disease that is influenced by multiple factors and has been classified as an epidemic for over 25 years. This crisis situation has grown exponentially worse each year and has now just about met the necessary conditions to be officially designated a pandemic.

Surgical bariatric weight loss procedures have been around for almost as long as this crisis has been going on, so one may wonder why the numbers are still rising. Research shows that only 1% of individuals who qualify for bariatric surgery actually go through with it.

Great strides have been made in a fairly new field of bariatrics called endobariatrics, which involves using endoscopic procedures to promote weight loss. If you have been looking into less invasive weight loss procedures, chances are you have heard about ESG, or endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty. This procedure was first performed in 2008 during a trial conducted at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic but has since improved and evolved into a viable option approved by the FDA for the treatment of obesity.

Today we are going to talk about this breakthrough procedure and what you can expect one year after endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty. We will provide some details on the days and weeks that follow the procedure and give some examples based on real-life patients.

What Is The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Procedure?

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG), also known as the endoscopic sleeve procedure or endosleeve, is a non-surgical weight loss procedure that involves reducing the stomach’s size using endoscopic techniques.

An endoscope is a medical device that is carefully lowered into a patient’s esophagus using a tiny camera that is attached as a guide. It is advanced down into their stomach, and the entire procedure is done from within.

The procedure is designed to mimic the effects of surgical gastric sleeve surgery without the need for incisions or the removal of a portion of the stomach. Instead, a series of sutures are placed inside the stomach to manipulate it into a narrower, shorter, tube-like shape, limiting its capacity to hold food. The individual is unable to eat as much and stays feeling full longer, which leads to weight loss.

What Can I Expect One Year After Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?

ESG has helped a large number of patients lose a significant amount of weight and reduce their BMI numbers.

The first year after undergoing endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a transformative time in the patient’s weight loss journey. During the first several months to a year after undergoing ESG, patients experience various adjustments and positive changes beneficial to their health and well-being.

Here are some of the typical changes an individual can expect in one year after Suture Sculpt ESG:

Significant Weight Loss
The primary goal of endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is to provide individuals with an effective, minimally invasive option for achieving significant and sustainable weight loss. Patients often experience a substantial reduction in their body weight, and one year after ESG, most patients have lost between 20 and 25% of their excess body weight and reduced their BMI.
Improvements In Health
After losing weight with ESG, patients can expect to find relief from chronic health conditions as well as joint-related aches and pains. Reducing your BMI through weight loss can improve or reverse fatty liver disease and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Numerous patients have reported positive changes in blood pressure control, blood sugar control, and cholesterol levels. Some patients have even been able to reduce or eliminate their medication for obesity-related health issues.
Enhanced Quality of Life
Many patients find that their quality of life improves after undergoing endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and losing weight. Activities that used to be difficult because of weight-related limitations are now easier and more enjoyable. Patients find it easier to get around; they have more energy, and they sleep better.
Psychological Well-being
Losing a significant amount of weight can positively impact an individual’s mental and emotional well-being. Many patients experience increased self-esteem and self-confidence as they achieve or surpass their weight loss goals one year after ESG. It is important to recognize that, at times, there may be psychological aspects of weight management that need to be addressed and may require the assistance of a professional.
Advanced Nutritional Education
One year after endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, patients have often learned the importance of proper nutrition. They feel more confident in their ability to make informed decisions about what to include or exclude from their diet. They can see a marked difference in their skin and their energy level, and they just feel better overall.

They understand that changing some of their behaviors, such as incorporating exercise into their daily schedule and making healthy food choices, has brought about these changes, which motivates them to continue so they can maintain their weight loss and a healthy BMI.

Ongoing Support
Successful long-term weight loss is dependent on adopting sustainable lifestyle changes. Over the course of the first year, patients can expect to work with medical professionals such as dietitians, exercise and lifestyle coaches, and support groups to help them turn their lifestyle changes into lifelong habits.
Potential Challenges
While most people experience positive changes in the first year after ESG, some people may experience difficulties like dietary changes, weight loss plateaus, or psychological barriers. These challenges are normal and can be effectively managed with the support of a quality weight loss center like Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center. It is important to keep an open line of communication with your weight loss team, as they are there to provide you with the support you need.

Such is the case with our patient Rosa, who lost 50 pounds and 20% of her total body weight in just 5 months.
