AspireAssist is FDA-approved weight loss alternative is non-surgical and reversible.
How it works
The AspireAssist is a non-surgical weight loss option, allowing patients to remove "about 30% of the food from the stomach before the calories are absorbed into the body, causing weight loss." This is a reversible procedure and only takes about 10 minutes, allowing you to get back to your daily routine almost immediately.
Is it safe?
"The AspireAssist has a low risk of serious complications, similar to feeding tubes which have been used for over 30 years. In clinical studies, the most common side effects were abdominal discomfort after the procedure, and skin irritation around the button site. Other less likely risks include infection and ulceration, which can generally be resolved with medication, tube removal, or tube replacement. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor to help determine if the AspireAssist is right for you."
Due to the simplicity of the AspireAssist's mechanics, it may be more affordable for patients who cannot afford a bariatric surgery. Need more information? Call us at 302.892.9900 to discuss with one of our physicians if AspireAssist is right for you.
