Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a weight loss program that’s supervised by a licensed physician. Many patients experience success with medical weight loss because of the social support, education, and other tools they receive that traditional diets lack. Dr. Victoria and his team use various medically based, researched-backed methods to help you reach your goal weight quickly.

What should I expect during my first appointment?

During your initial medical weight loss appointment, Dr. Victoria:

  • Weighs you
  • Screens you for high blood pressure and diabetes
  • Reviews your medical history
  • Completes a physical exam
  • Suggests lab or imaging tests as needed to assess your health
  • Discusses realistic weight loss goals with you

He lets you know if you’re a good candidate for medical weight loss, what you can expect during treatment, and how long it will take to reach your goal weight.

What happens during treatment?

Dr. Victoria and his team use numerous medical weight loss strategies to help you reach your goal weight. Examples include:

Diet plans

Your provider creates a custom meal and menu plan just for you, based on your individualized calorie needs and the condition of your health. You’ll know exactly what to eat and when to eat it, which takes the guesswork out of diet planning. Dr. Victoria might recommend meal replacement shakes or bars to enhance weight loss.

Medications

Taking medications can aid in medical weight loss in numerous ways. Some medications or supplements boost metabolism, decrease your appetite, or affect how your body absorbs fat. If you suffer from a thyroid disorder, medications can normalize thyroid levels within your body to keep your metabolism working as it should.

Fitness plans

Exercise is a crucial part of dropping weight and keeping it off, but developing your own fitness plan can feel like a daunting task. Dr. Victoria and his team develop custom exercise plans just for you, based on your health, lifestyle, and fitness goals.

Nutritional counseling

Eating right isn’t always as simple as it seems. That’s why the medical experts at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics offer nutritional counseling as part of your medical weight loss program. You’ll learn how to plan healthy meals, menus, and recipes for you and your family.

Is medical weight loss right for me?

When your body mass index (BMI) is 25 or greater, the risk of developing a chronic disease increases. If you’re overweight or obese and haven’t had success losing weight on your own, chances are you’re a good candidate for medical weight loss at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics.
