At Healthier Weight we are the first UK clinic to offer the traditional surgical sleeve and a new non-surgical alternative, the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG).
The ESG is an exciting development in obesity treatment that offers eligible patients a safe and effective alternative to the surgical weight loss options. It offers many of the benefits of the surgical sleeve but with lower risk. An ever-growing number of patients are transforming their health and quality of life by choosing an ESG.
The non-surgical sleeve (ESG)
The endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a new procedure for those who want the benefits of weight loss surgery but from a less invasive, non-surgical procedure. It involves suturing the stomach from the inside to significantly reduce its capacity by up to 80%. After the procedure, the stomach remains intact but has been sutured from top to bottom to leave a smaller banana shaped stomach through which the food you eat passes.
We’ve been very encouraged by the weight loss results our ESG patients are achieving. The studies show excess weight loss* after 2 years in the region of 50-60%, and ours at the top end of this range. In fact, a large proportion of patients have done considerably better, some reaching their target weight within 12 months*.
