Struggling With Your Weight-Loss Resolution? We Can Help

Now that the year is well underway, you may be frustrated that you aren’t making progress toward your goal to lose weight? You’re not alone. According to research, only 9.2% of people making resolutions achieve them. 

At Professional Aesthetics and Wellness, Richard J. Dittrich, DO, FACOG and our caring team work with you to customize a medical weight loss and accountability program to help you get rid of the weight in order to restore your health and confidence. Let’s take a closer look at how a supervised program works, what treatments are available, and how much weight you can expect to lose.

Understanding medical weight loss

When you arrive at one of our clinics in Vorhees, New Jersey, or Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, our team meets with you to understand your medical history, underlying health conditions, weight loss goals, and current eating and exercise habits.  We’ll also gather information about your current weight, body mass index, and body fat composition. Equipped with all of that critical information, Dr. Dittrich designs your personal program to lose weight safely and sustainably.

Treatment options

In our clinics, we use tried-and-true weight loss treatments, including:


With your health history in mind, Dr. Dittrich can prescribe one or a combination of prescription medications that can help balance your hormones, minimize your appetite, increase your feeling of fullness, interfere with your absorption of fat, or metabolize your calories more efficiently.

Modified hCG

hCG is a hormone that a woman’s placenta makes during pregnancy. Modified human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) works to help support your weight loss by reducing and redistributing your body fat. You’ll come to the clinic on a set schedule for injections and evaluation.

Lipo-B injections

Lipotropes are well known to remove fat from your liver. With a blend of vitamins and lipotropes that are thought to boost metabolism and speed up weight loss, lipo-B injections complement your diet and exercise regimen. 

What to expect

We know you want to get your excess weight off as quickly as possible. We’re here to help you do that, but it’s critical to lose weight safely and in a way that helps you keep it off for good. Our programs include behavioral, exercise, and diet modifications to help you lose about two pounds each week. In some cases and depending on your treatment type, you may be able to lose weight more quickly. Dr. Dittrich goes over your personalized plan with you so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
