The POSE method is a weight-loss technique that consists of a stomach reduction without external incisions. POSE, being a procedure without incisions, offers important advantages compared to other conventional bariatric surgeries: less pain, decreased risk of infection, absence of external scars, faster recovery and shorter hospital or outpatient stays. .
The novel technique is especially indicated for patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 27 and 40, who have repeatedly failed with diets and other weight loss treatments.
It is also indicated in those patients who have regained weight after having undergone treatment using the intragastric balloon or who do not wish to undergo major surgery.
With the POSE method you can lose between 45%-55% of your excess weight. Experience in the US tells us that when patients begin to lose weight during the first 4 weeks after the procedure, that is when they begin to feel the sensation of fullness.
The final result of the treatment will depend to a large extent on the level of adherence to the eating habits re-education program and lifestyle.
