Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss allows you to reach a healthy weight under the supervision of a medical provider. At Med Aesthetics, LLC, the team performs a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health to design an individualized weight loss plan for you. Support from a trained practitioner can help promote healthy, sustainable weight loss.

What can I expect from a weight loss plan?

The Med Aesthetics, LLC team understands that no two bodies are the same, and each patient’s weight loss plan should reflect that. When you arrive for your individualized weight loss plan, you can expect:

Initial consultation

During your initial consultation, you and the team discuss your concerns and health goals, lifestyle habits, diet, and exercise routine. These conversations allow the team to create an individualized plan that fits into your lifestyle for long-term weight loss.

Physical exam and testing

Performing a head-to-toe physical exam, reviewing your medical history, and ordering blood work gives the team vital insight into your health. These tests can also help determine the best diet and exercise routine for your body type.

Diet

Following a healthy diet is essential for weight loss. The team can help map out a nutrition plan that includes a healthy balance of vitamins and minerals, protein, and carbohydrates that allow you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise

Exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week, can reduce excess weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and minimize your risk of chronic disease.

Chronic disease management

If you have a chronic disease, such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or high cholesterol, the team can recommend a combination of medications and lifestyle modifications to promote sustainable weight loss and reduce your symptoms.

Supplements

Supplements, such as vitamin B-12, calcium, and vitamin D, may help improve your energy levels, boost your metabolism, and protect your joint health.

Why is weight loss important?

If you struggle to maintain a healthy weight, losing just 5-10% of your body mass can significantly improve your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Weight loss also relieves pressure from your joints, allowing you to increase your mobility and activity levels.

Weight loss has a number of health benefits to consider. To learn more, call Med Aesthetics, LLC, or schedule an appointment online.
