For a high percentage of overweight people, dieting, exercise and medication are insufficient when it comes to achieving sustained weight loss. The reason? After losing weight, our bodies have a natural inclination to return to their set point, or pre-weight-loss weight. The fact that weight loss lowers the metabolism while increasing the appetite makes it all too easy for our bodies to regain lost weight––often with a few more pounds than we were carrying before. The only surefire way to lose weight and keep it off is to reset the body’s set point. One of the most effective methods for resetting the set point is physical restriction of the stomach.
Suture Sculpt endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a non-surgical way to reduce the size of the stomach. Orbera intragastric balloon installation is an endoscopic procedure that reduces the amount of space available in the stomach. Both procedures put a substantial limit on the amount of food that can be ingested at any given time. As a result, you’ll keep the weight off long enough for the body to reset its set point and achieve long-term sustainable weight loss. Unlike other weight loss procedures, Suture Sculpt and Orbera are as effective for those who are only slightly overweight as they are for the morbidly obese.
