At Atlantic Cosmetic Surgery and MedSpa we understand that losing weight and keeping it off can be a struggle and a frustrating process for some. Whether you are looking to decrease your BMI to qualify as a surgery candidate or to jumpstart your weight loss journey we are here to support you. If diet and exercise have not offered you optimal results consider using Semaglutide or Phentermine.
Semaglutide is an injectable medication now indicated for weight loss that helps to regulate glucose levels and suppress appetite by activating GLP-1 enzymes that stimulate insulin release from the pancreas after eating. It is a weekly injection that works by targeting the brain's appetite control center to decrease hunger and cravings, blood sugar levels and improve metabolic control. Common side effects include nausea, constipation and other gastroinestinal issues that improve each week as your body adjust to the medication.
When taking this medication it is important to stick to your prescribed dosage to allow your body to adjust to the effects. Each patient is different, therefore dosage instructions and results may vary. Typically, patients can expect to see weight loss results within the first few weeks of starting treatment, with the greatest amount of weight loss occurring in combination with diet and exercise.
Phentermine is stimulant that is like an amphetamine. It is also an appetite suppressant that affects the central nervous system.
