Weight Loss

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Being overweight is more than an aesthetic concern. By losing weight, you can achieve a number of positive life effects. These include:

  • A maximum level of fitness
  • Feeling more attractive
  • Prevention of chronic diseases
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Elevated self-esteem

Surgical methods for weight loss are available, but these can lead to infection, long recoveries, and great financial expense. At Unique Dermatology & Wellness Center, Dr. Harvey-Dent can help you achieve success without having to  go “under the knife.”

What is involved in medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a way for you to get support during your weight-loss journey. You may benefit if you have destructive habits that have caused you to fail on other weight-loss plans. Also, if you have hormonal or metabolic issues interfering with your ability to lose weight, a medical weight-loss plan makes sense.

Dr. Harvey-Dent may recommend a number of strategies that include:

  • Oral medications to control your appetite
  • Natural supplements to optimize your nutritional intake
  • Lipotropic injections that include vitamin B12 to promote burning stored fat and increased energy

These medical supports help you release stored fat and accelerate weight loss.

And, when you’ve neared your goal weight but still have pockets of fat that refuse to reduce, Dr. Harvey-Dent can offer noninvasive CoolSculpting® treatments to contour these stubborn areas. Controlled cooling destroys these pockets of fat for good to help you achieve the look you want.

How do I get started with supervised medical weight loss?

At Unique Dermatology & Wellness Center, Dr. Harvey-Dent first thoroughly evaluates your physical health and lifestyle. She listens to you and works to understand your goals as well as your weight-loss history: what’s worked and where you’ve felt failure.

She and her staff then put together an individualized diet and exercise program. You’re provided with full support throughout this program so you can reach your weight goal and maintain it. Areas such as your thighs, abdomen, and buttocks can be sculpted using this painless, FDA-approved procedure.
