The medical weight loss program is offered to those who are interested in losing modest amount of weight in a safe and effective manner without any procedures or surgery. These are patients who either do not qualify for weight loss surgery, prefer losing weight naturally, or simply don't have that much to lose. There are also those who probably would benefit from bariatric surgery, but want to give a non-surgical option one last solid try.
An individualized plan is created to reach the desired goal which includes prescription strength medications, and an individualized nutrition plan based on the person's sex, age, weight, associated illnesses, and goals. Patients are seen monthly and the plan and medications are adjusted as needed. We’ve had tremendous success with this program, which has grown substantially over the years.
A medical weight loss program can also be doubled up with liposuction for even greater results, and targeted fat loss from stubborn areas.
