What Are Medical Weight Loss Injections? 

Medical weight loss injections have become a popular and much-talked about approach that can help those looking to lose weight. The active ingredient in the medication is semaglutide, which imitates the GLP-1 hormone that, in response to eating, is released in the gastrointestinal tract. By lowering A1C, a measurement of average blood glucose, injectable treatment is capable of not only improving a patient’s health, but also giving them peace of mind. Many individuals have become interested in injectable options for their possibilities as a supplemental tool for helping them lose weight. 

At Coberly Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dana Coberly, MD, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for her patients and enhancing their physique. With a variety of proven and sought-after treatments, Dr. Coberly and her team are committed to providing patients with confidence and a comfortable experience during their weight loss journey. 

What Are the Benefits of Medical Weight Loss Injections?

Medical weight loss injections offer a variety of potential benefits. The fat burning medication can control your appetite by slowing down food leaving the stomach and reducing cravings, which can result in weight loss. These solutions often promote satiety, making it easier to stick to healthy eating habits for the long-term. By optimizing insulin secretion and glucose control, the injectable ingredients can help enhance metabolism and aid in weight loss. Shedding excess weight can lead to increased energy levels, while achieving weight loss goals can boost self-confidence and improve body image. Beyond physical changes, our weight loss program aims to improve overall health markers, including blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels.

Who Is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss Injections?

Since medical injections for weight loss are known to slow the movement of food through the stomach and curb appetites, they have been helpful for those not seeing positive body changes from a healthy diet and exercise. Candidates should have realistic expectations and be ready to commit to regular check-ins, dietary changes, and incorporating GLP1 as prescribed. Additionally, patients pursuing medical weight loss injections should understand that patience is necessary once the process begins. It is also important to note that results may vary. A willingness to make sustainable lifestyle changes that support long-term success is very important for individuals who are considering these options.

We will be happy to discuss candidacy and any questions you may have during your initial consultation.

How Are Medical Weight Loss Injections Administered?

Medication is injected into skin once per week, typically in the thigh, abdomen, or upper arm. A new needle should be used for each new injection, while rotating the injection site each time.
