The new AspireAssist® has helped hundreds of people to achieve their weight loss goals, even people who have not been successful before.
The AspireAssist® reduces the number of calories your body can absorb. In an outpatient non-surgical procedure, a small tube is inserted into the stomach and connected to a button on the surface of your skin. After eating, this small, discrete device allows you to empty about 30% of your stomach contents in about 5-10 minutes. This process is simple and private.
Because the AspireAssist® requires that you chew your food thoroughly, you may find yourself eating more slowly and feeling full sooner, good habits to acquire to maintain long-term weight loss.
With the AspireAssist®, you will be able to lose weight while living normally. You don’t have to give up certain foods or drinks, although you should slowly learn to eat more healthfully. Also, the AspireAssist® should not limit your normal daily activities.
There are side effects to the AspireAssist®, but they are few and relatively minor. Your gastrointestinal anatomy is not changed, so you are not likely to suffer from vomiting, reflux, or nutritional deficiencies that can accompany some procedures. Your doctor can discuss these with you so you can make an informed decision if AspireAssist® weight loss success is right for you.
If you do decide on AspireAssist®, your doctor will be an integral part of your weight loss program, through the physician-monitored plan that helps you establish more healthful habits and make lifestyle changes to support your long-term goals.
When the time comes, AspireAssist® can be removed in a simple procedure taking about 10 minutes. Of course, the AspireAssist® is designed for long-term use, so you can keep it for as long as you consider appropriate – the choice is yours.
