Weight Loss Q & A
Can Medications Help Me Lose Weight?
Yes! Whether you’re an overweight or obese adult who has serious health problems because of your weight or you’ve tried dieting and exercise without significant results, then weight-loss drugs may be a great addition to your daily routine. The team at Vitality Ageless Center can coach you through a customized weight-loss plan that involves meal replacements or prescription weight-loss medications. Many of these drugs are FDA-approved and work by:
- Curbing your appetite
- Minimizing fat absorption
- Revving up your metabolism
Our team will consider your weight-loss goals, your health history, possible side effects, and potential interactions with any other medications you’re already taking before determining which prescription medication may work best for you.
Am I a Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?
Gone are the days when invasive surgical procedures were the only way to lose weight and get rid of excess fat. At Vitality Ageless Center, Dr. Grimsley uses laser-assisted liposuction procedures that take advantage of the latest advancements in technology and medical techniques. These procedures don’t require anesthesia, so you’d be completely awake. You may be a good candidate for this revolutionary type of weight loss surgery if you’re in good overall health and have pockets or patches of stubborn fat.
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 involves using gentle liposuction to remove fat from one part of the body and injecting the extracted cells into other areas such as the breasts buttocks or face to enhance your natural curves.
How Quickly Can I Lose Weight?
While weight loss clients from Vitality Ageless Center can lose up to 5 pounds or more each week, our main goal is to help you lose weight and keep it off. The best results usually occur by steadily dropping weight at an average of 1-2 pounds per week.
