A Customized Weight Loss Approach

Achieving a healthy and fit body can be incredibly challenging, particularly when it comes to dealing with persistent hunger. Fortunately, there are modern solutions available to help individuals control their appetite and effectively lose weight. At Alizadeh Cosmoplastic Surgery, we offer personalized weight loss programs that utilize the benefits of Semaglutide. This innovative treatment promotes a quicker feeling of fullness, effectively reducing hunger levels and empowering individuals to navigate their daily routines without constant cravings. With our specialized approach, we aim to support patients in their weight loss endeavors and provide them with a satisfying and successful experience.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, originally developed for type 2 Diabetes patients, is a potent glycemic stabilizer that enhances insulin levels while reducing the secretion of glucagon, a hormone that regulates blood sugar. In addition to these essential functions, Semaglutide also exhibits a significant appetite-reducing effect, leading to decreased food intake. While Semaglutide is highly effective as a standalone treatment for weight loss, patients often achieve the best results when combining it with a balanced diet and regular exercise. By incorporating Semaglutide into a comprehensive approach, patients can maximize their weight loss journey and improve their overall health.

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved peptidic GLP-1 receptor agonist that interacts with the hormone GLP-1 to regulate hunger levels. By engaging with GLP-1, Semaglutide induces a feeling of fullness, even with reduced calorie intake, effectively controlling appetite.

Beyond its hunger-regulating effects, Semaglutide also stimulates insulin secretion to address high blood sugar levels. It slows down digestion by delaying gastric emptying, resulting in reduced appetite and accelerated weight loss.

Our Semaglutide injections are administered weekly. When carried out in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, patients can achieve a significant body weight reduction of up to 15% with Semaglutide treatments.

    Who is a Candidate for Semaglutide?

    To obtain a prescription for Semaglutide in NYC or Long Island, patients must schedule a consultation with a qualified weight loss specialist. Typically, individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher are considered eligible for this treatment. However, those with a BMI as low as 27 and individuals with certain medical conditions like hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol may also qualify for Semaglutide.

    During the consultation, our experienced team conducts a thorough assessment of the patient's medical history and current health condition to determine their suitability for Semaglutide treatment. It is important for patients to disclose any existing tumors or history of cancer, as it may impact their eligibility. Additionally, patients should inform their practitioner about any medications they are currently taking to ensure a safe and tailored treatment plan.

    What is the Treatment Process Like?

    Semaglutide injections in NYC are typically given once a week, and the dosage may be adjusted gradually to optimize results. Patients generally tolerate the injections well, and they are commonly administered in the midsection, upper arm, or thighs.

    After the initial treatment, patients will receive instructions on how to self-administer the injections at home. Patients will need to come in for regular follow-up appointments to monitor their progress and ensure the treatment is proceeding as planned.
