What is AspireAssist?
The AspireAssist is a new, FDA approved weight loss solution for people with obesity. Unlike many other weight loss procedures, this is non-surgical and reversable. The AspireAssist tube is placed during a 15 minute, minimally invasive procedure that is very similar to the routine placement of a feeding tube. Most patients can return home within one to two hours after the procedure. With the AspireAssist, you can eat normal, healthy meals. After meals the device lets you remove up to a third of the food you eat through the tube placed during your procedure.
If diet and exercise did not help your lose weight in the past, the AspireAssist could be an option for you. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. Talk to your doctor to see if you qualify.
