Dr. Chiao explains – "During a quick, 15 minute procedure in the office, a thin tube is placed in the patient's stomach that connects the inside of the stomach directly to a discreet button on the outside of the abdomen. After eating a meal, a small device, (about the size of a smartphone), enables the patient to empty, or "aspirate", up to 30% of their meal into the toilet through this tube by connecting the device to the button. Dr. Angstadt added, "Once desired weight loss is obtained, the tube can be taken out or remain in place and continued to be used indefinitely. It's up to the patient to decide."
