Non Surgical Weight Loss


 

What is Obesity?

Obesity is a complex disease caused by many factors. It is not simply the result of “lack of willpower”, but rather a combination of cultural, environmental, genetic, and individual factors:

GENETICS People with an obese parent are much more likely to be obese than those with lean parents. 

FRIENDS & FAMILY The eating habits and physical activity levels of the people around you have a significant influence on your health behaviors.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS Some medical conditions and medications can lead to weight gain. 

EMOTIONS Distressing events, major life changes, stress, or boredom can lead to food intake even when you are not physically hungry.

LIFESTYLE Increased portion sizes and readily available “junk” food can lead to unhealthy eating habits. Busy schedules and modern conveniences such as cars and elevators make exercise difficult to fit into your daily routine.

Non-Surgical Treatment

LIFESTYLE INTERVENTION 

The most common approach to treat obesity is lifestyle intervention, including changes in dietary intake and physical activity. While moderate weight loss can often be achieved through dieting, most people regain their lost weight over time4.

PHARMACOTHERAPY 

Appropriate pharmacotherapy can help patients achieve about a five to fifty percent weight loss in one year. Depending on the condition of your heart and cardiovascular system, a combination of oral medications can help you achieve the weight loss you want without having to undergo invasive surgery or having to worry about additional skin excision procedures to deal with excess or redundant remaining skin or stretch marks.
