Does gastric plication work?

Gastric plication procedure contributes to sustained weight loss. Creating a small stomach pouch, that can store only a small amount of food, allows patients to lower their appetite and block the constant hunger, which means that they are going to be satisfied by consuming much less amount of food. In this way, they are going to lose weight more easily. Results of the gastric plication surgery depend mainly on the patient’s weight before the operation and the lifestyle after the recovery. Patients usually lose up to 55% of their excess body weight within the first 2 years after the gastric plication surgery and reach even 68% weight loss after 4 years. There are also other important gastric plication long term results which can be observed in more than 75% of patients, e.g. lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, significant reduction of diabetes and sleep apnea symptoms.
