Weight Loss Tongue Patch Surgery


Dr. Chugay was recently on FOX LA News discussing the Chugay Tongue Patch as an alternative to more drastic weight loss methods such as gastric bypass surgery or the lap band. Those methods are extremely expensive with an average cost for lap band at $14-15,000 and $18-35,000 for gastric bypass compared to the Tongue Patch at only $2000. We have had a total of 150+ patients undergo the procedure and this number continues to grow.

Dr. Chugay has recently begun performing a revolutionary weight reduction procedure, which he has dubbed the Miracle Patch.

This patch, when surgically applied to the tongue, produces a means to lose weight never before offered by other surgeons.

During a reversible procedure that takes less than an hour, the patient is fitted with a custom patch for the tongue which makes chewing of solid foods very difficult and painful, limiting the patient to a liquid diet. Under the direct supervision of Dr. Chugay and his staff, the patient is put on an easy to follow liquid diet, fulfilling all of their nutritional needs while at the same time minimizing caloric intake and maximizing weight loss results.

Recovery is rapid; and patients are typically able to return to work the following day.

150+ patients have received the surgery and have seen impressive weight loss results, with some losing as much as 20 pounds in the first month after surgery. Post operatively, patients may experience swelling of the tongue for 24-48 hours. Speech may be affected during this time but typically returns to baseline within 48 hours.

*INDIVIDUAL RESULTS WILL VARY.

Dr. Chugay is excited about bringing this procedure to Southern California and is thrilled to offer a solution to the eternal search for rapid weight loss techniques.

Things to Look for In your Surgeon:

  • Experience: With 2 generations of doctors, over 30,000 procedures and a lifetimes worth of combined experience, Dr. Nikolas V. Chugay and Dr. Paul N. Chugay have not only the required experience in various surgical and non surgical procedures but Nikolas has helped revolutionize the industry, and Paul is following very closely in his father’s footsteps, drawing on over 40 years of experience.
  • Compatibility & Respect: Book a consultation with the doctor. Get a feel for how they treat you; whether they listen to you and what you want. It’s important to thoroughly discuss what you’re trying to achieve with your doctor so they have a clear, concise idea of what your goal is but it’s equally important that you respect your doctor’s experience and education enough to listen to their recommendations. You don’t want a doctor that doesn’t care about YOU.
  • Specialization: Ask your doctor about other times they’ve performed the procedure you want.
