Weight Loss Q & A

How does medical weight loss work?

Medical weight loss is personalized to you and revolves around how much weight you have to lose, any underlying health conditions, and your daily lifestyle. Weight-loss planning begins with a body composition profile that outlines your body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI).

After thoroughly evaluating you and learning about your current diet and exercise habits, Dr. Dittrich and the team at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center can start designing your weight-loss treatment plan. The team has you check in regularly and makes any essential adjustments to your weight-loss plan in an effort to help you reach your body goals.

Which weight-loss treatment works the best?

The best type of weight loss treatment for you just depends on your needs. In many cases, it’s best to combine weight loss solutions for optimal results. Some of the most in-demand weight loss solutions offered at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center are detailed below.

Modified hCG

Modified human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) involves getting weekly hCG injections and following a personalized eating plan. The hCG injections stimulate fat metabolism, so your body starts burning thousands of calories from fat and depleting excess fat stores.

Lipo-B injections

Lipotropic and vitamin B injections (lipo-B) stimulate liver functioning. Since your liver is responsible for removing fat buildup and toxins for your body, weekly lipo-B injections can help you reach your weight-loss goals faster.

Prescription weight-loss medications

The team at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center proudly offer a wide variety of prescription weight-loss medications. These medications can suppress your appetite, help your body burn calories more efficiently, and stabilize hunger-controlling hormones.

Plus, once you get close to your weight loss goals, Dr. Dittrich can help you tone and tighten any lingering stubborn spots with laser body contouring treatments with SculpSure®.

How much weight can I lose on a medical weight loss plan?

Gradual weight loss is ideal for helping you keep the weight off permanently. Generally, Dr. Dittrich likes to see you lose an average of at least 1-2 pounds per week. Since medical weight-loss regimens offered at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center are entirely tailored to you though, you might be able to lose even more — possibly 3-4 pounds weekly.*
