Medical Weight Loss
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a weight loss program that is all-inclusive and gives you multiple options to lose weight? That is exactly what we had in mind when designing our program. Our program starts with a Body Composition Test which tells you important information about percentage of body fat, percentage lean mass, and basal metabolic rate. The Basal Metabolic Rate is by far the most important factor when trying to lose weight. This information is needed to understand what your caloric intake should be throughout a given day. With that information on hand, we can now formulate a plan to get you to your desired weight.
Our Weight Loss Program may include:
- A complete history and physical
- Lab work when indicated.
- Bio – Impedance Analyzer (BIA) test- this will give you information on:
- Percent body fat
- Lean muscle mass
- Basal Metabolic Rate
- Appetite Suppressants
- HCG, Phentermine, Contrave
- Regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress
- Diet Recommendations
- Zerona Fat Reduction Laser – Lose up to 4 inches in three weeks (FDA approved for treatment of body contouring and fat reduction).
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)
- HCG is endogenously made within the body and is a safe alternative to other pharmaceutical appetite suppressants.
HCG works by 2 mechanisms:
- Blocking hunger by working at the level of the Hypothalamus and the brain. This allows you to eat less food and be able to tolerate a lower calorie diet.
- Increasing fat absorption systemically throughout the entire body. This allows for a whole body toning effect. We use your basal metabolic rate from the Bio-Impedance Analyzer test to guide us on the number of calories a patient should be eating per day. A typical HCG cycle is approximately 45 days and typical weight loss is 15-20 pounds or more during that cycle.
- Phentermine is a commonly used appetite suppressant. It works by increasing catecholamines at the level of the hypothalamus to increase basal metabolic rate and help maintain appetite suppression. It is highly effective at curbing appetite and studies have shown significant weight loss in patients with obesity. Weight loss can be dramatic and you can lose up to 30-40 pounds or more in 3-4 months. The benefit of phentermine is that it is in pill form and can be used for up to 2-3 months at a time.
- Contrave is a newer medication on that market that combines an antidepressant with the side of weight loss to a lower dose of Naltrexone. Naltrexone is used in addicts to block cravings. In patient’s that have the propensity to eat for comfort or joy may benefit greatly from Contrave. Contrave is safe and well tolerated and can be used for extended periods of time to achieve greater long-lasting weight loss.
Zerona Laser – Fat Reduction Laser
Experience Laser Lipolysis body contouring, cellulite reduction, and a slimmer, tighter shape – all with no pain, no needles and no down time!
What is Laser Lipolysis?
Laser Lipolysis is the intelligent, non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Laser lipolysis is an FDA approved technology for use as a non-invasive dermatological aesthetic treatment for the reduction of circumference of hips, waist, and thighs. This is a non-invasive body shaping laser weight loss treatment that shrinks fat cells beneath the skin. There are no incisions and the fat is removed through the body’s natural elimination process.
The Laser Lipolysis Protocol is very simple to follow and not uncomfortable in any way. You will receive a total of 6 treatments spread out over 2-3 weeks. Each session is less than 60 minutes.
How Laser Lipolysis works
The Zerona Laser works by increasing energy production inside the fat cells which allow for further breakdown of fat inside each fat cell. The fat is then absorbed by the lymphatic system and excreted from the body. Imagine grapes being shrunk into raisins. The good news is that this reduction in size can be permanent as long as you continue to maintain appropriate diet and caloric intake.
