Weight Loss Q & A
Can Medications Help Me Lose Weight?
Yes! If you’re not quite ready for weight loss surgery or if it just isn’t a good fit for you, the team at Vitality Ageless Center can coach you through a customized weight loss plan that involves meal replacements or prescription medications such as the appetite suppressant phentermine. Many of these drugs are FDA-approved and work by:
- Curbing your appetite
- Minimizing fat absorption
- Revving up your metabolism
Because each medication works differently, the team spends time getting to know your health and your weight loss goals to determine which medication is best for your needs.
Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
Gone are the days when you needed to go through an invasive surgical procedure to get rid of excess fat and lose weight. With advancements in technology and medical techniques, you can now receive laser-assisted liposuction procedures in the office that don’t require anesthesia, so you would be completely awake. You’re likely going to be a candidate for this revolutionary type of weight loss and body sculpting surgery if you:
- Are in good overall health
- Have pockets or patches of stubborn fat
Plus, if you want to enhance or contour other areas of your body, like your breasts or buttocks, you may be a candidate for a fat transfer. This in-office procedure simply involves extracting fat cells from problem areas and re-injecting them into precise locations to provide more curves and definition.
How Quickly Can I Lose Weight?
Between safe and effective in-office weight loss surgeries, personalized diet and exercise coaching, and prescription weight loss medications, the possibilities are endless.
While weight loss clients from Vitality Ageless Center can lose up to 5 pounds or more each week, the goal to help you lose weight and keep it off is to drop weight steadily and average losing about 1-2 pounds per week. Don’t worry if you plateau or have seriously struggled to lose weight in the past. Since the team offers several solutions for weight loss, you can always change your plan, so your journey is as smooth and effective as possible.
