It is extremely hard to live a long and healthy life if you are unable to control your weight. The body is simply not equipped to deal with excessive amounts of fat for an extended period of time. This is why morbid obesity is one of the leading causes of premature death in the United States. If you are obese and unable to lose weight, then it is time to seek professional help. Not everyone wants to undergo surgery, however, which is why we offer an effective non-surgical weight loss option. AspireAssist will get you healthier without the risk of any surgical complications.
Details of Procedure
AspireAssist is a new weight loss device that can be added to your stomach without having to undergo a long surgery. You will be given a light anesthetic before starting the procedure. The entire procedure will take about 15 minutes to complete. You will be able to go home after spending some time in a recovery room. An appointment may be scheduled after the procedure to teach you how to properly use the non-surgical weight loss device.
How It Works
Once the AspireAssist device is non-surgically inserted into the stomach, it blocks off a small portion of your meal into a special tube. This food is then drained from the port on your belly using a special suction device. Since this part of the meal is not fully digested, your body will not absorb any of the calories. You will need to make sure to eat slow and chew your food into small pieces for everything to work correctly. This will also help trick your brain into feeling full.
The non-surgical weight loss device will reduce your caloric intake by approximately 30 percent. This will help you quickly lose a lot of weight. While everyone is different, most patients lose about 10 pounds during the first month. The weight will continue to fall off over time. You will be monitored by a doctor throughout the entire process to ensure you are staying healthy. They will also teach you to make healthy lifestyle choices. It should take about a year to reach your goal weight. Since the body has been trained to eat small healthy meals, you can get the AspireAssist device removed at this time.
