What is medical weight loss?

It is no secret that being overweight is associated with many health risks. Losing weight is the first step in living a healthier life. Evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily are more successful in keeping it off. With the help of a trained physician, we can help you achieve your weight loss goals. 

Our weight loss program is individually customized and highly personalized based on your individual goals.  Your treatment plan may include a combination of nutritional advice, lifestyle recommendations, prescription medication, vitamin therapy, and hormone optimization.

A personalized combination of these modalities may be right for you. All of these treatments can also help you maintain your weight loss.

It is safe to lose about 15% of your weight over a period of 3 months if you are being monitored by a physician.

Am I a good candidate for medical weight loss?

Most, if not all patients are candidates. However, because of the nature of the medications that may be used for treatment, our doctors have to be sure that any side effects that rarely occur are closely monitored for.  Certain untreated medical conditions can prevent one some therapies but an alternative treatment can almost always be implemented. Examples of these conditions might be uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes. A close review of your medical history, blood pressure, blood examination, and your personal goals will help determine your candidacy for the program.

Does insurance cover the program costs? 

Our practice does not work directly with insurance companies, however, we are happy to provide all the necessary documentation you need so you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.

We advise you to check with your individual insurance provider.

What is included in the medical weight loss plan?

  • Nutritional Advice - Our physicians are specifically trained to discuss your nutrition and how to create a plan that works best for your body in regards to maximizing your health and reducing health issues like inflammation, high cholesterol or blood pressure.  Our personal trainers are also extensively trained to provide guidance on how to adjust your diet to help you lose weight or gain muscle. 

 

  • Prescription Medication - There are several different medications that can be prescribed to help you in your journey to attain your weight loss goals.   Though not a substitute for a proper nutrition and exercise plan, your results can be amplified and be made more efficient by combining a solid diet and exercise plan with prescription medication under a physician’s guidance.

 

  • Hormone Optimization - Our physicians are certified and trained in hormone replacement therapy

 

  • Non Surgical Body Contouring - We offer the latest non-surgical fat reduction treatment SculpSure available to patients to get rid of stubborn fat when diet and exercise options have been exhausted (for an additional cost).

 

  • Surgical Body Contouring - Sometimes when a patient undergoes extreme weight loss they are left with excess skin and surgical body contouring may be recommended.
