The variety of weight loss surgeries has vastly increased in the last few years. Patients looking for Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty consultant in London have many options including Dr Rehan Haidry. Dr Haidry is one of the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Consultant London patients can consider for their treatment, but it is worth first understanding the treatment a little better and considering whether it is your most suitable option.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Endoscopy Sleeve Gastroplasty reduces the size of the stomach. It creates a tube-shape rather than the regular stomach. This means smaller portions of food will leave the patient feeling full. This can help in losing weight in a sustainable and manageable way.

ESG is carried out under general anaesthetic. The endoscope is passed into the stomach with a specialised stitching device attached. The tiny camera on the endoscope allows the doctor to see inside your stomach and use the stitching device to create a small size. The stitches change the structure of the stomach, so it resembles a tube. It mimics a traditional gastric sleeve without the need for invasive surgery.

ESG usually takes around 90 minutes. Patients are often able to go home the same day with the aftercare guidance suitable to their individual circumstances. Patients must also follow a specific diet for the first few weeks after surgery. Firstly, you’ll need to begin on a liquid diet, slowly progressing to more solid foods over a set period. You’re your healthcare team will discuss this with you after your procedure.

An important thing to remember when considering the ESG treatment is that it requires commitment to a healthy lifestyle. The procedure does make you feel fuller sooner, but without a commitment to a healthier diet and exercise, patients can see minimal results. Taking time to adjust to your new appetite and embracing your new lifestyle will help in moving forward and getting the most from your treatment.
