Gastric bypass patients usually experience a significant reduction of weight following the procedure. Oftentimes, however, this period of weight loss is replaced by a steady increase in weight. At the heart of the problem is the stretching of the stomach and stoma, which results in loss of control over hunger and food consumption.

The stretching prevents you from feeling full, so that you end up eating more than you actually should. Eventually, this leads to an increase in weight, reversing the losses that you made just after your first surgery. This is quite common among gastric bypass patients and there is no reason to be alarmed. A ROSE procedure helps in correcting this problem.

What Is ROSE?

Short for Restorative Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal, ROSE is a procedure that involves bringing the stomach back to their normal size, thereby allowing you to feel full once again.

The procedure does not involve surgery, and is conducted by inserting surgical equipment through a natural opening. A device is inserted through the esophagus and into the stomach. It will then work to pull together the stretched muscles, casting them into pleats. These pleats are then stitched together to create the required level of constriction in the stomach.

ROSE is not always a standalone procedure, but one that is conducted as a follow-up for gastric bypass patients.

The Benefits of the ROSE Treatment

Among the different follow up surgeries that are carried out, ROSE is one of the best because it does not involve making incisions.

  • The ROSE procedure is fast: ROSE is a quick procedure. This is one of the main reasons that it is so popular among gastric bypass patients. The surgery rarely takes more than an hour because there is no incisions involved.
  • No Incisions necessary: for people who do not want to undergo a procedure that involves making incisions, ROSE is an amazing alternative! It is a useful procedure, especially for those patients who are unable to undergo an open procedure due to other medical conditions.
  • Less Recovery Time: recovery time is fast because there are no major incisions made. The stitches inside the stomach are minor, and heal within no time. This allows patients to go back to their normal duties quickly. This can come as great news for patients who lead busy lives and do not have the time to spend days recovering.
  • ROSE is a safe and effective treatment: ROSE does not cause any lasting post-surgical marks, pain, or infection. It is a simple procedure that gives you amazing results, without the usual unpleasant after-effects that follow an open procedure.

Having been successfully performed on millions of gastric bypass patients worldwide, ROSE is known to be a safe, reliable procedure that is highly effective.
