Weight Regain after Sleeve Gastrectomy (Mini-ESG)

Mini Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (Mini-ESG)

Mini Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (Mini-ESG) is indicated for patients who have regained weight after sleeve gastrectomy.

Over time, the reduced volume stomach may “stretch” back to almost its original capacity. With a dilated stomach, patients do not feel full and this contributes to overeating and weight regain. 

In this scenario, the only available solution to lose further weight was to convert to a gastric bypass. However, with the innovative and endoscopic mini-ESG procedure we are able to reduce the volume of the stomach and maintain the sleeve configuration. 

Mini-ESG is almost identical to ESG. But the purpose of mini-ESG is to reduce the volume of the stomach to its capacity immediately after sleeve gastrectomy.  

The procedure is done in approximately 30 to 45 minutes and is done under general anesthesia.

After the procedure, you will be able to go home.

The BeBetter nutritional and back to physical activity and exercise programs need to be followed to maximize weight loss.
