Weight gain can be discouraging for anyone. But for those who have already undergone major procedures like gastric bypass, weight gain can be devastating.
If you have received gastric bypass surgery or endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and are experiencing post-procedural weight gain, all hope is not lost! You can still get your results back and even maintain them long-term.
If this sounds like you, Resculpt may be the solution you’ve been seeking. When you partner with the skilled medical team at Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center, you can enjoy meaningful support with a minimally invasive, long-term weight loss solution.
The Resculpt Procedure
The Resculpt procedure is a non-surgical treatment designed for individuals who have already undergone weight loss surgery. Resculpt is a revision treatment that can help you achieve your goals for your body goals.
A Non-Surgical Treatment that Works
Resculpt is minimally invasive. Our experienced medical team performs the procedure using endoscopic tools to access the stomach. An endoscopic approach allows our skilled providers to complete Resculpt treatment without the need for surgery.
During Resculpt, our surgical team will suture the walls of the stomach, which will effectively make your stomach smaller. The goal is to reduce stomach volume by 60%, which can help you to feel fuller faster and reduce the number of calories that you consume. In this manner, Resculpt can provide a long-term weight loss solution for patients.
Resculpt, Gastric Bypass, and Endoscopic Sleeve Procedures
There are many similarities between Resculpt, gastric bypass surgery, and endoscopic sleeve procedures. All three methods involve reducing the size of the patient’s stomach. However, there are some key differences to keep in mind:
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is made up of two steps:
- Dividing the stomach into a small upper section and a larger bottom section
- Connecting the jejunum of the small intestine to the small upper section
The reason gastric bypass results in weight loss is twofold:
- Reducing stomach volume means you consume fewer calories by experiencing the “full” feeling sooner
- Connecting the small intestine to the small upper section (also known as the “pouch”) means your body absorbs fewer calories overall
However, for some patients, their stomachs “grow back” or expand, after gastric bypass surgery. Stomach expansion means you’re able to eat more, which can in turn lead to consuming more calories.
Patients who do not maintain a measured caloric intake after gastric bypass surgery sometimes see weight gain as soon as 12 months after their procedure.
Endoscopic Sleeve Procedure
During an endoscopic sleeve procedure, our medical team places sutures in the stomach to change its structure and make it smaller. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is not as invasive or major as gastric bypass surgery. It’s also very similar to the method used for Resculpt.
Just like with gastric bypass, however, you can compromise your results by overeating and gaining weight back.
Why Do Some Patients Gain Weight Back After These Procedures?
It’s actually quite simple. The stomach is an organ designed to stretch as food enters. Generally, once it reaches capacity, it sends signals to your brain that you are full and you can stop eating.
The two main players in hunger and fullness signals are:
- The leptin hormone, which is produced by your fat cells and communicates with your brain when you’re hungry or full
- The hypothalamus, which is the area of your brain that regulates appetite and satiety
The unfortunate truth is it’s easy to regain weight after weight loss surgeries and procedures. If you consistently overeat, your stomach may become permanently larger rather than shrinking back down.
Many people struggle with knowing when they’re full. This happens for many reasons, including:
- Taking a medication that interferes with the communication of your leptin hormone and hypothalamus
- Eating in stressful or distracting environments in which you’re unable to pay attention to your body’s signals
- Mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression, which can interfere with your appetite
If you’re considering weight loss treatment, it is so important that you work with a team that will offer post-procedural support. That is exactly what you’ll find at Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center.
If you’re struggling with post-procedural weight gain, Resculpt could be the perfect non-surgical treatment for you.
How the Resculpt Procedure Is Different
Like gastric bypass and endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, Resculpt reduces the size of your stomach. But Resculpt procedure can also reverse the damage done by post-surgical stomach expansion.
And this is why Resculpt is different. Resculpt isn’t just a one-and-done procedure.
