Weight Loss Q&A

Who should consider weight loss?

Weight loss is not always as simple as cutting calories and joining a gym. Doctor-supervised weight loss may be right for you if you’ve tried dieting and exercising to lose weight with little to no success. Dr. Su and the team can help accelerate your efforts through nutrition counseling, exercise support, medication, and other lifestyle changes. 

Dr. Su typically recommends medically supervised weight loss to clients with a body mass index (BMI) over 29.9. Weight loss under the guidance of a medical professional can help you shed pounds in a healthy, sustainable way without yo-yo dieting. 

How can I accelerate my weight loss?

Dr. Su and the team can build a customized weight loss plan that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals and maintain a healthy weight. They may recommend fat-melting injections to help accelerate your weight loss. Weight loss injections may include:

Semaglutide sodium fat-melting injections

Semaglutide sodium is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that suppresses appetite and reduces food cravings. These injections may also help lower your blood glucose levels. Semaglutide sodium mimics the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) your body already produces. This intestinal hormone satiates your appetite and stops you from overeating. 

Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid injections

Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid is an injectable treatment that helps eliminate fat beneath the chin. FDA-approved to address submental mental fat, phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid injections are ideal for individuals with fullness beneath the chin, commonly called a “double chin.”


Fat melting injections are safe, effective, and minimally invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. After an initial consultation, Dr. Su and the team can determine which injection is right for you.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Weight loss can help you look and feel your best, but if you struggle to maintain a healthy weight, medically supervised weight loss under the guidance of Dr. Su and her team has many advantages, including:

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Improved digestion
  • Constipation relief
  • Enhanced cardiovascular health
  • Improved athletic performance

Healthy weight management also reduces your risk of chronic diseases such as hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, and arthritis. If you already have a chronic illness, weight loss may help minimize your symptoms.
