Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a personalized approach to your health that involves getting your doctor involved in your weight loss journey. After all, the underlying cause of weight gain or even the reason behind why you’ve struggled to lose weight could be linked to a medical issue (like low hormone levels).

Medical weight loss involves undergoing screenings and exams to evaluate you as a whole, rather than just focusing on the number on the scale. You receive expert medical attention throughout your journey, so as you gradually lose weight, you learn healthy lifestyle changes to help keep the weight off. 

Which services are included with medical weight loss?

When you come into Amber Medical Spa for your weight loss consultation, you meet directly with Dr. González, who’s a board-certified internist with an extensive background in weight loss solutions. Dr. González talks with you about your weight struggles and helps you determine which weight loss treatments may be best for your needs. 

Your weight loss plan may include a combination of the following options:

  • FDA-approved prescription weight loss medications
  • Regular B12 injections (to boost your metabolism)
  • Personalized nutrition and meal plans
  • Detailed exercise plans

Dr. González also has you check in regularly. Oftentimes, knowing you have to meet with your doctor every few weeks to document a weigh-in can help keep you motivated, so you can stay on target. 

How much weight can I lose with medical weight loss?

Amber Medical Spa is happy to help you reach your weight goals, whether you need to lose 10 pounds or hundreds of pounds. No matter how much or how little weight you need to lose, Dr. González encourages you to focus on small successes along the way.

As long as you’re consistently losing a moderate one to two pounds each week, you’re on track. Dr. González supports you throughout your weight loss journey for as long as you need it.

You can get started on a personalized medical weight loss plan at Amber Medical Spa by booking a consultation online or you can call the med spa to schedule over the phone. 

Individual results may vary.
