Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a non-surgical alternative to traditional bariatric surgeries, such as sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure reduces the stomach volume by 70% without cutting away a part of the stomach, making it less invasive and risky. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is worth considering if you want to achieve sustainable and dramatic weight loss without surgery. Brand Surgical Institute uses cutting-edge surgical techniques to help you achieve your weight loss efforts and lead a healthier life in Glendale.
What is Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty?
How does endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty work?
Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, also known as the accordion procedure, is a minimally invasive laparoscopic bariatric procedure. This procedure involves the physical insertion of an endoscope through the mouth and into the stomach, following which the front and back walls of the stomach are sutured together and tightened. The surgeon essentially stitches the walls of your stomach together to seal them off, which reduces your stomach volume by 70%.
The accordion procedure reduces your stomach size, so you feel full and satisfied after eating significantly less food. Furthermore, this procedure also makes your body empty out the consumed food at a much slower pace, which kills your appetite and prevents you from snacking between meals. The ESG procedure reduces your stomach size, reduces hunger pangs, and makes you consume fewer calories, leading to sustained weight loss.
