How Does It Work?

An Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty reduces the size of the stomach without surgery by using a thin, flexible tube to create a smaller stomach. This non surgical, reversible procedure limits the amount of food a person is able to consume by 3-4 ounces.

You receive all care and visits at our outpatient clinic except for the procedure itself, which takes place at Santander Hospital. [/ vc_column_text] [/ vc_column]

Although each person is different and may experience different results,

You may experience abdominal discomfort or nausea for a day or two, but will be able to go back to work or similar activities within three to five days after the procedure. 

Follow up visits take place one week, two weeks, one, two, three, six, and 12 months following the procedure. [/ vc_column_text] [/ vc_column] [/ vc_row]

Special dietary guidelines will be provided to help your body adjust to the changed anatomy of the stomach. Post-procedure diet will begin with clear liquids and advance progressively to solid foods within our team recommended guidelines.

To maintain a healthy weight, it’s important that you commit to lifestyle changes. Your diet should limit the intake of calories according to the doctor’s recommendation, and should consist of foods allowed by the guidelines, eaten at the proper times. Regular exercise is also an important part of the process.

Applying a set of suggested body products is an important part of helping you keep a healthy image during the weight loss process. These products will help lose fat tissue, remove excess skin as the body shrinks in size, and provide the skin with nutrients to properly adapt to your changing figure.


The amount of weight you lose depends on how much you change your lifestyle habits. However, studies of patients who have undergone the endoscopic gastric sleeve gastroplasty have shown promising results. The lose is between 45 – 60 % of your extra body weight.

-Hospital admission and stay for 24 hours

-Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty


-Follow up visits

-Nutritional support for 3 months
