Carrying excess weight is about more than aesthetics. Being overweight and obesity take a serious toll on your health, increasing the risk for various chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even some types of cancers.
Whether you’ve tried to lose weight on your own and failed, or this is your first attempt to trim down, a medically-supervised program may be the edge you need to shed pounds and keep them off for good.
Lasting weight loss is possible
At Epitome Medical Aesthetics, holistic physician and weight loss specialist Dr. Norman Gonzales help patients lose weight, improve their health and feel better. Dr. Gonzales offers effective programs that he supervises to ensure that you stay on track and reach your weight loss, health, and aesthetic goals.
After you reach or get close to your ideal weight, Dr. Gonzales can help you put the finishing touches on your weight loss with skin tightening, body sculpting, skin rejuvenation, and more.
What is medically-supervised weight loss?
Do-it-yourself weight loss programs use a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Going it alone is not only challenging, it involves a lot of guesswork. When you choose a medically-supervised program to lose weight, you have the support you need to reach your goals.
Dr. Gonzales starts with a detailed medical history and lab work as guidance. This information provides insight into the inner workings of your unique body and helps determine which program will work best for you.
Weight loss designed just for you
The programs Dr. Gonzales offers are tailored to each patient. Individualized weight loss means your program is designed to address your specific weight loss challenges. You no longer have to guess whether or not a program will work for you.
Dr. Gonzales takes the guesswork out of weight loss. Lab results help Dr. Gonzales tailor your weight loss plan so you lose weight consistently, safely, and effectively.
Weekly visits keep you on track
Our medically-supervised weight loss programs typically include weekly visits with your provider to check in on your progress. During this time, Dr. Gonzales may make adjustments to your program to keep you on track.
If your weight loss stalls, Dr. Gonzales can tweak your plan to get the scale moving again. With our program, you’ll receive comprehensive support during each step of your weight loss journey.
Tools to get you to the finish line
Only a licensed medical professional can prescribe FDA-approved medication to assist you in your weight loss journey. For many people, appetite control is a major hurdle during the initial stages of adopting a lower-calorie diet.
With our doctor-supervised weight loss programs, you can defeat cravings and hunger to ensure that you continue to successfully lose weight and feel good while you do so.
Dr. Gonzales can prescribe medication to control your appetite and help you feel full on less food. Without nagging cravings and gnawing hunger you can focus on adopting behaviors that will help keep the weight off for good.
The hCG advantage
Dr. Gonzales offers hCG to help jump start your weight loss. hCG is a prohormone your body makes naturally that has many benefits, including weight loss. Only a healthcare provider can administer hCG injections.
These injections are used with a controlled-calorie diet to promote rapid weight loss. hCG enhances your metabolism, improves body composition, and helps control your appetite.
As you lose weight, hCG helps the body retain lean mass so that you have an improved fat-to-lean-mass ratio. Injections are typically administered weekly.
There’s no substitute for enlisting the help of a medical professional and weight loss specialist when you’re serious about slimming down. If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting, then you’re ready to lose weight for good with our doctor-supervised weight loss programs.
