AspireAssist®

Advanced Laparoscopic Associates is the first on the East Coast to offer this brand new minimally invasive procedure.

A REVERSIBLE, NON-SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROCEDURE

The AspireAssist is a new weight loss solution for people with obesity. Unlike some other weight loss procedures, it’s non-surgical and reversible. In a U.S. Clinical Trial, patients lost three times more weight with the AspireAssist than those receiving only diet and exercise counseling. The most successful patients in the US Study – those who used the device regularly and made gradual lifestyle changes - lost up to 107 pounds in the first year. The AspireAssist is a comprehensive program that includes the device, one year of nutritional counseling, and an online community to help keep your weight loss on track.

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WEIGHT

The AspireAssist is a simple approach that puts you in control of your own weight loss. The device works by reducing the number of calories that your body processes. It also requires you to chew your food very carefully, giving time for the fullness signals from your stomach to reach your brain so you’re less likely to eat too much. During a 15-minute non-surgical procedure, a small tube is inserted into your stomach. Most patients go home within 2 hours after the procedure. The tube connects to a button on the surface of your skin. After you eat a meal, this small and discreet device allows you to empty about 30% of the calories into the toilet. The process is simple and private, so no one needs to know. 

ENJOY LIVING NORMALLY

With the AspireAssist, there are no particular foods or beverages that are off-limits, although you’ll gradually learn to eat healthier. You do not need to limit your activities – in fact, many patient find they are able to enjoy new activities after losing weight. Because the AspireAssist requires that you chew your food well, you’re likely to find that you eat more slowly and feel full sooner, good steps to take toward maintaining weight loss.

Side effects are few and generally minor. Because your gastrointestinal anatomy is not altered, you don’t suffer many of the side effects that are seen with more invasive weight loss procedures. 

A SMART PHYSICIAN-MONITORED APPROACH

An important part of the AspireAssist therapy is a physician-monitored plan to establish healthier habits and make lifestyle changes that can support your weight loss. The AspireAssist is a powerful tool to reinforce these changes because it helps you learn to chew more carefully and eat more slowly. So while you can see results quickly, you’ll know that you’re also working toward long-lasting change. 

EASILY REVERSIBLE

Although the AspireAssist is intended for long-term use, it can be removed at any time in a 10-minute same-day procedure.
