Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty: A Safe & Effective Solution

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty is a revolutionary weight loss procedure that offers a promising non-surgical alternative for those seeking effective weight management solutions. At The Silhouette Clinic, we specialize in this minimally invasive technique, which has shown remarkable results in safety and efficacy.


The Procedure

ESG is performed endoscopically, meaning it involves no external incisions. Instead, a flexible tube with a camera (endoscope) is inserted through the mouth and down into the stomach. Our skilled professionals then use specialized instruments to suture the stomach internally. 


Safety Profile

Studies have shown that ESG has a lower complication rate compared to traditional bariatric surgeries. The risk of major complications is less than 1%, making it a safe option for eligible patients. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure also means a shorter recovery time, with most patients returning to normal activities within a few days.


Efficacy and Outcomes

When it comes to efficacy, ESG has a proven track record. On average, patients who undergo ESG experience significant weight loss, often losing 15-20% of their total body weight within 12 to 18 months post-procedure. Additionally, studies report improvements in conditions like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea following ESG. 


Long-Term Success

For long-term success, ESG is combined with comprehensive lifestyle changes. Our team at The Silhouette Clinic provides ongoing support with nutritional counseling and medical weight loss programs to help patients achieve and maintain their weight loss goals. This holistic approach is key to the enduring success of the ESG procedure and a healthier, happier lifestyle. 



Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Reviews  

When it comes to ESG surgery, before and after photos don’t always tell the whole story. There’s a lot more going on behind the scenes that you can’t see from just a set of pictures. Check out these ESG before and after stories and get ready to feel inspired!   


“I’ve struggled to lose weight my entire life. For context I was dieting when I was in 4th grade. Nothing worked. I would lose weight, but it’d always come back. I was even in the gym every other day and it seemed like my body just did not want to drop the weight.


When the pandemic hit, I gained 30lbs and that was my sign to take a leap of faith and have the ESG procedure.


I started at 226lbs (I’m 5’7″-5’8″). In a years time I lost 53lbs thanks to the help of Dr. Charbel, Katelyn M., and Kasey W. The clinic is responsive and caring. I never felt like I was being a burden with all my questions.. in fact they were encouraging me to ask more questions. This process and the es procedure have truly changed my life. Thank you all.”

“Since my ESG procedure, I have lost about 40lbs!! This year-long process has been one of the most challenging things I’ve done, but Dr. Charbel and his whole staff made sure I was supported and taken care of the whole time. From the procedure itself to the full year afterward, the full staff was readily available to answer all of my many questions and continuously checked in on my process. 


My dietitian, Katelyn, is the absolute best! From assisting me with my meal plans, understanding what my new lifestyle would look like, and providing me with the necessary support and tools to understand my eating habits and how they needed to change. Along with Crystal, RNP, who ensured my health remained in good shape through the full year and did a great job at listening to how I felt and what I needed. 


This procedure and weight loss program have truly changed my life. I would 100% recommend the Silhouette Clinic to anyone looking to begin this journey. Before my procedure, I did a lot of research and consulted with several doctors and I can say Dr. Charbel and his team were the best choice I could’ve made.”

— Michelle


“I had my surgery in July of 2022 when I weighed 315 lb. The second picture is from today, in November 2022 at my current weight of 250 lb. It almost makes me want to cry looking at those two pictures side by side and thinking about how grateful I am to feel like myself again. To have reclaimed my life and my ability to do the things that are important to me. These include keeping up when I’m coaching my children’ sports, hiking, swimming, grappling, and running. It’s amazing that I can run 6 miles several times a week now, but it’s even more meaningful to me that I can go for a walk with someone I love without being winded and embarrassed and self-conscious the entire time. My only regret is that I did not do this sooner.”

— Nate

I got the ESG. Dr. Charbel and the team have been great. Kasey was great and super informative to start the process along with my initial appointment with Dr. Charbel. I knew everything about pre-procedure, what would happen during it, and what to expect/do after my procedure. All my meds were explained to me and sent in well ahead of time so l was ready. The procedure went great, I definitely felt some pain after which Dr. Charbel made sure I had meds for at the surgery center. The nurses at the surgery center were professional, and nice and followed proper protocols. Kaitlyn has been a great nutritionist before and after the procedure. The appointments are super informative and she’s quick to respond via email if I have questions.
The procedure price may seem high, but it’s competitive amongst other clinics and I think the quality sets them apart from the rest and makes it worth the price. I was 364 on procedure day 4/24 and as of today, I’m 305 pounds! The ESG changed my life. It still takes watching what you eat and being as active as possible, but the ESG is a great tool and well worth the money. You won’t regret going to Silhoutte Clinic for your weight loss needs.
