What happens when we have painful lumps, bumps and sores on our tongues? Eating becomes difficult, swallowing and chewing becomes difficult. Right.
Now this simple consequence of tongue sores is used by a californian plastic surgeon to the good of people wishing to lose weight.
Dr. Nikolas Chugay, a California plastic surgeon’s surgically applied tongue patch makes eating uncomfortable, causing people to eat less and lose weight.
and a consequence, people with tongue patch lose weight.
Dr. Nikolas Chugay has begun performing the patch surgery, which he describes as a weight reduction procedure dubbed the Miracle Patch.
Although this procedure takes the painful aspect of lumpy, bumpy and painful tongue sores; the doctor is happy with his innovation as in his words, the patch contains no drugs or chemicals. The patch simply makes chewing solid food very difficult and painful, relegating the patient to a physician supervised liquid diet that fulfills all of the patient’s nutritional needs while at the same time minimizing caloric intake.
The Tongue Patch — an alternative to lap band and gastric bypass surgery; costs from $15,000 to $50,000 — involves no drugs or pharmaceuticals and has a quick recovery time, Doctor says.
No data on the safety of the procedure or whether weight loss is sustained (permanent) once the patch is removed and the person resumes eating, is provided by the doctor.
