What Weight Loss Results Can Be Expected After ESG?

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is one of the most popular endoscopic weight loss procedures because it is not just safe and leaves no scars, but is also extremely effective for treating overweight and obesity. No matter what kind of weight loss results you want, with the ESG procedure anything is possible given the expertise and experience of our team and your willingness to stick to our program. In this article, we will discuss ESG weight loss results in detail, and what outcomes can be expected on average both for men and women, in the short term and long term.

Average Results after Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

During the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, the stomach gets stitched together and folded like an accordion. The reduced stomach volume helps people get full with smaller portions of food and eat less. As a result, after a year following the ESG procedure with the decreased food consumption, on average ESG patients lose about 12% to 20% of their total body weight or 40% to 75% of their excess weight. However, it is important to note that these values are just an average, and individual results may vary significantly depending on various factors such as short-term and long-term perspectives.

Short-Term Results with ESG

In the short term, patients can expect to lose a lot of weight rapidly. After the ESG, patients can lose at 3 months – 10% of their total weight, at 6 months – 15%, and at 12 months – 20%. Similarly, recent research demonstrated that at 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 18 months patients can lose 8.9%, 10.5%, 13.7%, 15.2%, 15%, and 14% respectively.

As we have seen from these findings, the weight loss in the short term is quite high and fast, though over time the progress might slow down slightly which is a common thing for all weight loss procedures and surgeries. To turn short-term success into long-term success, patients need to adopt healthy eating habits, adhere to an active physical activity regime, and closely follow the recommendations of the doctor.

Long-Term Results Post ESG

As years go by, many bariatric surgery patients tend to regain the lost weight and struggle to maintain their hard-earned ideal body mass. However, when it comes to people who had an endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, recent studies showed that ESG provides durable weight loss results for at least up to five years following the procedure. The research found that after 3 years patients lost 14.9% of their total body weight while after 5 years this number successfully reached 15.9%.

The Reveal Weight Loss team provides a comprehensive guideline that addresses all the questions regarding long-term weight loss management and ensures you are well-prepared for getting the results you want in the years ahead.

What Are The Minimum Results after ESG?

The minimum ESG weight loss results you can expect are around 10% of total body weight. The lowest excess weight loss anticipated after ESG can be in the range of 15% to 20%. However, the minimum weight loss results may vary depending on the time period and individual efforts. As we have discussed above, results in the short term and long term can be different. Also, Some people might lose much less or much more weight than others.

What Maximum Results Can I Reach?

As for the maximum results, as the saying goes, the sky’s the limit. There were cases when people lost from 70 pounds up to 100 pounds within six months after ESG. There are many success stories of ordinary people just like you who were able to achieve incredible results thanks to ESG and their own efforts and cooperation with doctors.

One of the ESG patients who weighed 257 lbs lost 63 lbs over 12 months. Another patient went from 280 pounds to 204 lbs within 12 months thanks to the procedure and her dedication to the weight loss program created by the Reveal Weight Loss team.

Men vs Women Weight Loss Results

Men and women have different body compositions, concentrations of hormones, and lifestyles that can affect their weight loss results. Yet, as the research suggests, males tend to lose weight more rapidly than females. However, when it comes to ESG patients, there were no studies that looked specifically into the differences in weight loss results between genders.

Generally, existing literature suggests that there are no significant differences between the weight loss results of males and females. Let us look at the expected weight loss results for men and women.

How Much Can Men Expect To Lose With ESG?

Typically men can expect to have their BMI lowered by 7.5 points one year after the procedure. For example, if currently, a man has a BMI of 37, then in a year, he would have a BMI of 29.5 which would bring his BMI from the class of Obesity down into the range of overweight. In terms of lost weight in % and lbs, after 18 months men have a tendency to lose around 15-20% of total body weight or around 40-50 pounds. While these figures tell you common outcomes, your specific achievements might be much better or slightly less.

How Much Can Women Expect To Lose With ESG?

Many women successfully undergo ESG procedures and achieve their weight loss goals. This can be observed from many studies on ESG where the majority of patients are females

As meta-analysis reveals women can reduce their excess weight by two-thirds within 18 months following the procedure. More specifically, women can remove 25 pounds at 3 months, 40 pounds at 6 months, and about 50 pounds at 9 months after the procedure. Although the mean results provided here help you get an understanding of what you can have, factors such as your willingness and desire to closely follow a doctor’s recommendations can greatly affect your results and help you achieve much more than projected.
