What is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?

In endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, a suturing technique (Overstich) reduces stomach volume to nearly 70%.[1] It is a minimally invasive procedure and does not require incisions or cutting through the stomach.

Now let's look at how endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is performed in Mexico.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Surgeon Using Endoscope for ESG
  • After qualifying for ESG, you will be cleared for the procedure.
  • You will be monitored for vitals during the procedure, followed by sedation.
  • An upper diagnostic endoscopy is done to ensure your stomach is healthy.
  • A full-thickness endoscope is put into your mouth, and the stomach is folded from the inside to reduce its size and then sutured.
  • Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is reversible, so if you change your mind, you can reverse it by removing the stitches.


The success of a bariatric procedure lies in consistently maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You must adhere to a nutritious diet regime post-op.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Vs. Endoscopic Sleeve

Find below how this bariatric tool differs from the surgical gastric sleeve.

A good portion of the stomach is cut surgically to reduce its size. No incision is made, and the stomach is sutured from the inside using an endoscope.
It works best for patients with a BMI of more than 40. Best suited for patients with BMI <40.
Irreversible Reversible
A minimum of 2-3 weeks is required for recovery. Recovery is almost immediate.

Even if is not planned as a temporary procedure, ESG might be followed by an additional surgical bariatric treatment.

-Dr Valentina Milani

Which Is a Better Weight Loss Option?

The answer lies in a simple fact that ESG is less efficient if you are class 3 obese i.e. your BMI is 40 or above.[5]

In cases of severe obesity the gold standard of weight loss surgeries - surgical gastric sleeve & gastric bypass are more successful. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a helpful bariatric tool for those with BMI between 30 - 40.

Long term success is yet to be documented since it is only a decade long procedure

Having said that any bariatric procedure is only fruitful if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain consistent post-op. Otherwise anyone is prone to relapse.
