Finding the will and strength to lose weight is a struggle that millions of people go through each day all over the world. Those who can do it through exercise do it that way, while others resort to more drastic steps.
These steps often include surgical procedures that either reduce the existing fat of the body, or prevent it from taking on more fat.
While these procedures are used by thousands of people each year, they are still quite risky as they interact with the body at a very unnatural level.
Now, doctors have developed a new method to prevent fat storage, by just sucking out food directly from your stomach. This food is then drained down the toilet directly.
Gross as it may sound, this is a very effective procedure, which has been given approval by the FDA. So, any one of you could easily go to your doctor and ask about it, by the name of AspireAssist.
The procedure itself is quite simple. The doctors do a simple surgery, through which a tube is placed directly into your stomach. This creates a second belly button type opening on the outside of the stomach.
This opening can be accessed through a special value, in which you fit the pump that sucks out the contents of your stomach right in front of you.
Since it is placed in the upper region of the stomach, it can only remove about 30% of what you ate, which is still enough considering the amount of overeating we do these days.
The simplicity of the system makes it a cheaper, easier, and less invasive option for weight loss, when compared to bariatric surgery. This system has already been tested on over 170 patients as part of the clinical trail needed for FDA approval.
However, just like bariatric surgery, it can also have severe side effects, like sore throats, irritation, bleeding and even pneumonia. That’s what it is recommended that the procedure should only be done with proper supervision.
If you still want to get this done for yourself, despite the risk and the semi-permanent nature of the procedure, then it would cost you somewhere between $8,000-$13,000. You can ask your doctor about it right for better advice.
