Are you prioritizing your health this year? Is losing weight one of your goals?
The start of a new year is a good time to make positive life changes. But weight loss is tricky. And health professionals are slowly realizing that “diets” don’t work, at least not for everyone.
At Skin Shop MedSpa in Houston, Texas, Dr. Tiffany Su understands how hard it is for some people to reach their weight goals. We offer medically supervised weight-loss plans to help our patients lose the weight and keep it off.
If you have a hard time losing weight on your own, then it’s time for expert support. Find out how we can help you achieve your weight-loss goals this year.
The truth about weight loss
Most weight-loss plans focus on calories. They encourage you to eat less and move more to create a calorie deficit. If your body burns more calories than you eat, it turns to your fat stores for the extra energy, helping you lose weight.
This seems logical, but it’s not always effective. Calories count when it comes to losing weight, but it’s not the only factor that affects your weight. Your age, genetics, and personal health history can make it harder for you to reach your weight goals.
A good weight-loss program considers all the factors that affect weight, creating a personalized plan that leads to long-term weight management. You can’t get this from a fad diet, but you can with help from medical professionals.
Why you need expert support
Weight loss is hard. It requires discipline, commitment, and a desire and willingness to make lifestyle changes. Doing this on your own is overwhelming, and that’s where we come in.
We’re experts in weight loss and understand the challenges that come with it. We don’t hand you a diet plan and send you on your way. We complete a thorough evaluation before making any recommendations so we fully understand your weight-loss goals, struggles, and overall health.
We use the personal information you share with us to create an individualized plan. A plan designed with your needs and goals in mind. A plan you can follow for life.
How we help
Our experts provide many tools that can help you achieve your health goals. We include the basic foundations of a good weight-loss program: nutrition counseling, support for exercise, and lifestyle counseling.
But as we know, diet and exercise isn’t always enough, and you may need medication. Our medically supervised weight-loss program offers weight-loss injections, including:
Semaglutide is a prescription weight-loss injection that’s gained tremendous popularity over the past year, helping many people achieve their weight goals. This medication reduces your appetite and food cravings, helping you eat less and lose weight.
Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid
If you have excess fat under the chin after reaching your goal weight, then we may recommend phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid injections. The injections break down the fat under the chin, reducing facial fullness.
We also offer LipoStat Plus, an intramuscular injection that contains nutrients like methionine, inositol, choline, and vitamin B6 that support metabolism and help with weight loss.
You don’t have to do weight loss on your own. We can help you achieve your goals with our expert support. Call our office at 713-701-1717 today or book your weight-loss appointment online.
