Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss takes the guessing out of losing weight. At Serenity Women's Care & Medical Aesthetics, the team uses a holistic weight loss approach that considers every element of your health.

Medical weight loss can include regular physical exams, nutrition plans, exercise plans, and other therapies. The team personalizes your program to fit your body, goals, and lifestyle.

Losing weight isn’t one-size-fits-all, and that’s where many diet and exercise plans fail. With medical weight loss, you have a customized solution and support from medical experts so you can shed excess weight and enjoy better health.

What’s included in a medical weight loss program?

No two medical weight loss programs are alike at Serenity Women's Care & Medical Aesthetics. The team starts with a comprehensive health evaluation and use that as the basis of your weight loss plan.

They do a physical exam and ask questions about your diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits. They also consider chronic health conditions and any other factors that could be limiting your ability to lose weight successfully.

Then, they work closely with you to develop a weight loss plan that fits your needs. Your plan may include specific diet and exercise recommendations, as well as complementary therapies to support your progress.

The providers offer education and accountability and adjust your weight loss plan if needed to help you stay on track. Once you reach your goal, they help you learn how to avoid gaining the weight back.

How can medical weight loss help me?

More than 41% of Americans are obese, and another 31% are overweight. Carrying extra weight can put your health in jeopardy, and obesity is linked to a range of other serious health conditions like:

  • Arthritis and joint problems
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke

Fortunately, achieving a healthier weight significantly lowers your risk of these health problems. In fact, losing about 5% of your body weight can have noticeable positive effects on your health. For a 200-pound person, that’s just 10 pounds.

If you’re overweight or obese, it’s not too late to make healthy changes. Losing excess weight can improve your mobility, give you more energy, and even extend your lifespan — and medical weight loss can help you get there.
