What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a highly effective approach to take if your goal is to reduce body fat. Unlike other weight loss programs that may lean on faulty conclusions and assumptions, medical weight loss takes your personal circumstances and health into account. Your provider creates your medical weight loss plan using evidence-based strategies backed by current research.

As you go through your medical weight loss program at Glow Maven Med Spa, your provider helps you set minor goals as you work toward your end goal. She visits with you at regular follow-up appointments to track your progress and makes any necessary adjustments to your personalized medical weight loss plan.
 

What does medical weight loss involve?

Losing weight with the assistance of a medical professional looks a little different for everyone since each plan is tailored according to the needs of the individual. Your medical weight loss plan at Glow Maven Med Spa may involve:

Dietary changes

Dietary changes may involve reducing your calories, using meal replacements, or finding healthy alternatives for your favorite rich or sugary options. Adaku teaches you the basics of nutrition to help guide your decisions while planning your diet. 

Exercise

Exercise plays a crucial role in many personalized weight loss plans. Not only does it help burn calories and increase your metabolism, it also boosts your energy and mood. 

Medications

Some people benefit from taking medications that suppress their appetites or help them feel full faster when eating. 

What are the health benefits of medical weight loss?

When you use a healthy approach to losing weight, such as medical weight loss, you can control or prevent many diseases and health conditions related to being overweight or obese. Increased body fat is associated with several severe long-term health conditions, and medical weight loss helps lower your risk. 

Your weight loss plan can lead to a reduced risk for:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood sugar
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Joint pain and arthritis
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke 
  • Certain types of cancer

You might find that, after reaching your weight loss goals, you have more energy or get better sleep, among other wellness benefits. Glow Maven Med Spa offers body contouring treatments as a way to get rid of any final remaining pockets of fat once you complete your medical weight loss program.
