Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss involves an individualized program that helps you work toward your weight-loss goals with confidence. Some general weight-loss programs are not designed for you personally and don’t take any of your unique needs or circumstances into account. With medical weight loss, you can be sure you’re on the right track to meeting your goals.

Reveal Med Spa offers medical weight loss to help minimize your risk of health conditions and complications associated with excess body fat such as:

  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

Throughout your time in the program, Dr. Imtiaz supervises you with regular follow-ups and can make adjustments to your program as she sees fit. 

How is my weight-loss program planned?

Dr. Imtiaz starts planning your weight-loss program after a detailed initial evaluation. She reviews your medical history and identifies any conditions you have or are at risk of getting due to your body fat percentage. 

More importantly than simply taking your height and weight, Dr. Imtiaz conducts multiple tests to gather valuable data on your health and metabolism. This includes blood work and nutritional testing. The results of these tests help Dr. Imtiaz construct your weight-loss program and start working toward your goals. 

What does medical weight loss entail?

Medical weight-loss plans at Reveal Med Spa address your individual needs. After setting your goals, Dr. Imtiaz develops your medical weight-loss plan with multiple highly effective strategies. 

One important part of any weight-loss plan is nutritional counseling. Dr. Imtiaz helps you analyze and adjust your diet to ensure it meets your nutritional needs without excessive calories. She might advise you on lifestyle changes too, like getting more exercise or cutting down on alcohol. Other strategies that might help with medical weight loss include:

  • Vitamin B12 shots
  • Supplements
  • Prescription weight-loss medications or appetite suppressants
  • Hormone therapy for hypothyroidism

A little bit about REEVUE

The REEVUE machine measures the oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced by the body. This number, in turn, helps to calculate the number of calories that an individual burns at rest in a 24-hour period. This technique is called Indirect Calorimetry.

It’s important to keep in mind that weight loss is a gradual process and that it takes commitment to maintain your results. You should plan on adopting healthy changes for years to come if you want to maintain your goal weight and any health benefits you get from your weight-loss plan.
