Suture Sculpt endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a non-surgical outpatient procedure that reduces the functional volume of the stomach by up to 60%. This reduction in stomach volume causes a sense of fullness in the patient when they eat smaller portions, leading to significant and sustained weight loss. Suture Sculpt has no physical activity restrictions, and most patients report little to no pain following the procedure. Recovery takes just a couple of days, and is far easier than recovery from bariatric surgery. To better help patients achieve their weight loss goals, we provide monitoring for a year along with a lifetime of nutritional counseling. As with other weight loss procedures, Suture Sculpt works best when combined with a longstanding commitment to a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Average Weight Loss: 18% of total body weight in the first 12 months following the procedure, with continued weight loss for the next 12 months. Individual results may vary.
Procedure: A suturing device is inserted endoscopically to reduce the size of your stomach by up to 60% while retaining its natural blood and nerve supply as well as intestinal continuity.
How It Works: Decreases stomach size so you eat smaller meals, learn portion control, and feel full longer.
Recovery Time: Patients are discharged within a few hours of the procedure, and can return to work within one to two days. Individual recovery times may vary.
