What is Ear Stapling?
-A tiny surgical stainless steel staple that is positioned in the inner cartilage of the ear between specific pressure points to target weight loss.

How Long Does it Last?
-It can last from 2 to 3 months before the staple has to be removed and replaced.
What is the Average Weight Loss?
-2 to 3 pounds a week. Those who are serious and add a healthy diet, as well as exercising to their regimen may see much greater results. We have 85-90% success rate with our patients for weight loss.
Does it Hurt?

What are the Risks?
