Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a personalized approach to weight management where you work with a health care professional. Losing weight is difficult, and no single method works for all. Most weight-loss programs focus only on diet and exercise.

Though diet and exercise are important components of any successful weight-loss program, they aren’t the only factors that influence your weight and ability to lose it. At Fiamo Aesthetics, Fiamo understands the many factors that affect weight, including your medical history, genetics, age, ethnic background, hormones, and sex.

When you come in for a medical weight loss consultation, he aims to understand all the factors that make weight loss more challenging, like your ethnicity, so he can create a plan that works. Fiamo also uses innovative tools to keep you motivated and help you reach your goals.

What happens during medical weight loss?

You can expect a patient-centered evaluation when you come in for a medical weight-loss consultation at Fiamo Aesthetics.

Fiamo asks detailed questions about your weight and weight history, including the types of diets you’ve tried in the past. He asks about your usual eating and exercise habits and the barriers that make weight-loss difficult.

He reviews your medical history, family history, and performs a physical exam. 

After he gathers all the information, Fiamo discusses medical weight loss and provides recommendations regarding diet, exercise, and other tools that can help you reach your goals. When creating your plan, he takes your ethnic background into consideration, making food recommendations that align with your culture.

What are some of the tools that help with medical weight loss?

Fiamo Aesthetics is a wellness center, and Fiamo takes a proactive and preventive approach to care. He offers many innovative tools that support your medical weight-loss goals, including:

Infrared sauna

An infrared sauna uses light to create heat that increases your core body temperature, helping to burn fat. Infrared saunas also help you relax and relieve stress. 

B12 injections

B12 is an essential vitamin that makes red blood cells and turns food into energy. Fiamo Aesthetics offers B12 injections as part of medical weight loss to boost energy and metabolism.

Laser liposuction

Laser liposuction isn’t a weight-loss procedure. However, Fiamo offers this aesthetic treatment to remove stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
