Obesity Treatment System If Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is 35 to 55

You have the abiliti®

With the abiliti system, you have the abiliti to take control of your weight – and your health. You may also find the satisfaction and confidence that come with taking positive steps toward weight loss success.

A gentler way to lose weight

Achieve your weight loss goals without the discomfort, side effects, and lifestyle changes experienced with other surgical weight loss approaches. The abiliti system works by gently stimulating your stomach when you eat or drink something to give you a feeling of fullness, so you are more likely to eat less – and lose more.

A smarter way to lose weight

By providing effective weight-loss tools and a support network, the abiliti system empowers you to change your behavior and create a healthy lifestyle. The system automatically records when you eat, drink, and exercise. This information can be wirelessly sent to a laptop computer for you and your surgeon or physician to review.  This enables you to easily monitor your eating and exercise patterns, track your progress, spot trends, and identify areas that need special attention.*

The abiliti® procedure is designed to be as easy and trouble free as possible. Some of the highlights of the procedure are described below. If the abiliti system is right for you, your surgeon or physician will explain the procedure to you in more detail and answer any questions you may have.

What the implantable system includes: The abiliti system consists of a stimulator (a small battery-powered device similar to a cardiac pacemaker) and a lead containing a stimulation electrode and food sensor.

The procedure: The procedure is done through laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive technique in which a surgeon uses a camera called a laparoscope, small incisions, and specialized instruments. The camera allows the surgeon to view the inside of your abdominal cavity in order to insert the lead containing the sensor and the stimulation electrode into your stomach. After the stimulator is implanted,the laparoscopic incisions are closed. The procedure involves no intestinal rerouting or stapling of the stomach. As a result, the surgery is very safe; and because the anatomy of the digestive tract is unchanged, the procedure is easily reversible.

In most cases, the procedure takes less than an hour, during which time you will be asleep.

The abiliti system could be right for you if your body mass index (BMI) is 35 to 55.

If you have avoided weight loss procedures such as gastric bypass and gastric banding because of concerns about safety and quality of life, you may want to learn more about the abiliti system and what makes it different:

  • The abiliti system may help you lose weight without many of the long-term side effects reported with other procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric banding.
  • The abiliti procedure is simple and safe. It is fully reversible and leaves no significant scars.
  • The abiliti system doesn’t restrict what you eat or what you do.
  • Short-term or long-term surgical complications are very uncommon.
  • The abiliti system helps you gain a better understanding of your eating, drinking, and exercise patterns through detailed recording of these activities. You and your doctor can use this understanding to change these behavior patterns and support a healthier, thinner you.

How much does the procedure cost?

The abiliti procedure is similar in cost to gastric bypass surgery. For details on cost, contact a surgeon or physician who performs the abiliti procedure.

    I don’t believe in such extreme methods of losing weight. I mean in most cases it will help, but is it safe for your body? You can say that being overweight is already unsafe, but if a person is obese, it’s, first of all, a matter of his will: is he going to give up and lose his health or rise up and fight. There are hundreds of stories across the internet about people who lost 100-300 lbs thanks to regular trainings and dieting. At first find your ideal weight and calculate how many calories you should intake daily here: http://www.absflat.com/daily-calorie-intake.php. Then keep watching your calories within this number and combine your diet with exercising. It won’t come fast, but this result will be the best.

       I seriously get annoyed by comments from people like you. You prejudge by looking at other who are overweight and automatically assume its because they have no will to stop. Be cause of peoples judgements those who are overweight get depressed and end up in the same place they are. I have a 4 year old that last year weighe 32lbs and ended up with a brain tumor that was rare. 8 long months and a brain surgery that almost took her life later, she lost function of her thyroid and much more and in the past 4 months has doubled her weight to 62lbs. What would you say about her then? Lack of will?
