Discover this new weight loss solution that could help you finally shed those stubborn pounds.
While there is a ton of advice out there about how to successfully and safely lose weight, we know that losing weight is still a challenge for a lot of people. If you aren’t getting the results you want then you may be considering other options for helping you lose weight and improving your appearance. If so, our Livonia, MI, gastroenterologists Dr. Veslav Stecevic, Dr. Mihaela Batke and Dr. Naveen Reddy are here to tell you about how AspireAssist could help.
What is AspireAssist?
This weight loss treatment has been approved by the FDA and has provided countless obese patients with a non-surgical approach to finally shed those stubborn pounds. This treatment takes a different approach to weight loss by removing around 30 percent of the food you’ve consumed during a meal once it reaches the stomach but before your body has to chance to turn the food into calories.
How does AspireAssist work?
During the procedure, a small tube is placed within the stomach. This tube runs from the stomach to a tiny button that is placed on the outside of your body (within the abdomen region). After every meal, a small device controls and opens the button, which then allows you to remove and easily discard around 30 percent of the food you’ve just eaten.
You’ll “aspire” around 20 to 30 minutes after you have finished your meal and it only takes around five minutes to complete the process. The contents from the tube can go right into the toilet and since AspireAssist only removes up to 30 percent of the food you eat your body still gets the proper nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
What is the procedure like?
Unlike surgical weight loss treatments, this procedure can be performed right here in our office in about 15 minutes and you’ll be able to go home a couple of hours after the procedure. Plus, the recovery time is much shorter than it would be for someone undergoing bariatric surgery. AspireAssist is performed under conscious sedation.
Is this weight loss treatment right for me?
If you are an adult who is overweight or obese and hasn’t been able to lose weight successfully through a healthy diet and regular exercise then it might be time to talk to one of our Livonia, MI, GI doctors about whether AspireAssist could finally give you the look you want. It’s important that you are an otherwise healthy individual who is dedicated to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after your treatment.
