Truncate response


I am just wondering if there is an efficient and straight forward way to
tell elasticsearch to truncate the reponse it sends. For example one of my
fields is a "description". Is it possible to have it to when it sends the
search response it only sends the first 200 charts of the description (and
yet still keeps the full description in the index to search against).

Any help would be appreciated as searches on the subject turned up nothing.
