Medical Weight Loss...
Non-surgical medical weight loss refers to a variety of treatments that are designed to help individuals achieve weight loss without undergoing bariatric surgery. Patients with the most success with these treatments have a BMI of over 30 or a BMI of 27 accompanied with weight related comorbidities.
Three Integral Components
Just as bariatric surgery is a tool for achieving successful weight loss, utilizing medications is a tool in reaching weight loss goals. These medications suppress the appetite by slowing down the movement of food in your gut, which keeps you satiated for longer.
Along with using these medications as prescribed, Dr. Korman carefully monitors a patient’s progress.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of these medications, lifestyle changes are also necessary. Patients are also encouraged to work with the Marina Weight Loss Center’s registered dietitian to create and track a plan that ensures patients are consuming all the necessary nutrients while also maintaining a caloric deficit. In addition, patients are encouraged to engage in physical activity to promote cardiovascular health and lean muscle mass.
It's important to note that the effectiveness of non-surgical medical weight loss methods can vary from person to person, and results may be influenced by factors such as an individual's overall health, metabolism, genetics, and adherence to the program.
