MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
There’s no getting around it— for most of us losing weight and keeping it off is an ongoing struggle. It is estimated that 80 percent of people who lose weight will gain it all back, and often more, within a year. While for some a balanced diet and active lifestyle are enough to shed and keep off any unwanted pounds, for others, an extra edge or medical intervention may be necessary to start seeing those numbers drop on the scale. Losing weight can improve your overall health and lessen the severity of weight-related conditions, but with so many diet fads and workout trends out there, it can be difficult to determine what will work for you and your specific needs.
At Body Symmetry MD, our wellness consultants take the guesswork out of weight loss by meeting with you one-on-one to develop a medical weight loss plan that is tailored not only to your unique physiology but also to your lifestyle. Whether you need accommodations for a hectic work schedule, dietary restriction or a relentless sweet tooth, our plans are so successful because they are designed around you.

Weight Loss Coaching and Comprehensive Meal Plans
During your first visit at Body Symmetry MD, one of our expert wellness consultants will meet with you to conduct a thorough dietary analysis, check your vitals and take your current measurements to establish a comprehensive meal plan and weight loss regimen that works for your body. After completing baseline lab work as a jumping-off point, you will be provided with a 30 to 90-day weight loss plan along with a nutritionally balanced meal plan based on your lab work, dietary preferences and restrictions. We even provide you with a straightforward grocery list to guide you. Weekly follow-up visits ensure that we can effectively monitor your success and make any adjustments to your plan to help keep you on track.
Prescription HCG Injections
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a protein-based hormone that occurs naturally in the body during the early stages of pregnancy. When HCG is administered through injections in conjunction with a low-calorie diet, it is believed to drastically boost the metabolism to burn off fat without feelings of hunger or fatigue. The HCG diet combines an ultra-low-caloric-intake with its natural appetite suppressing abilities to allow you to comfortably shed pounds while eating significantly fewer calories than your body may be used to consuming.
While limiting your daily caloric intake alone can help you to lose fat, a common side effect of weight loss is losing muscle mass as well. Prescription HCG injections work to prevent muscle loss by creating an anabolic state, or muscle-building state, in the body to counteract the breakdown of your muscles. By cutting down calories while in this muscle-building state, this prescription can help you to dramatically speed by the fat burning process without feeling hungry or restricted while maintaining your muscle mass.
Appetite therapy, sometimes referred to as appetite suppressants, are drugs used to primary target the neurochemical transmitters of your central nervous system to reduce your overall food intake. Generally speaking, they work by tricking your brain into thinking it is not hungry or making you feel full longer. When taken in addition to a healthy diet program and workout regimen, appetite suppressants can significantly aid in achieving and maintaining weight loss.
Phentermine, also known as Adipex-P, is one of the most commonly prescribed weight loss medications offered today at Body Symmetry MD that curbs hunger and helps you to lose weight. However, as an amphetamine, this approach is not for everyone, especially those with heart disease, high blood pressure or women who are pregnant. Common side effects can include an increased heart rate, heart palpitations, restlessness or insomnia, so it is crucial you discuss your medical history thoroughly with our wellness consultants to determine if appetite therapy medications are right for you.
Body Sculpting with Acoustic Lipo
Acoustic lipo, also as known as ultrasonic cavitation, is a painless and nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that contours and reshapes the body using minimally-invasive ultrasound technology. Safe, low-frequency ultrasound waves are utilized to penetrate stubborn fat beneath the skin for a noticeable circumferential reduction to your treated areas and an overall slimmer figure. The ultrasound waves both heats and vibrates fat cells until they liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream to eventually be expelled by the body.
While there is no pain or downtime associated with acoustic lipo, most patients will require between 10-12 treatments depending on their current weight and the size of the treatment area. Acoustic lipo procedures can be completed in as little as 30 minutes to an hour, making it an ideal body contouring treatment for your lunch break. The results of acoustic lipo are long-lasting but will require a consistent diet and exercise plan to maintain your slimmer, toned results.
Nutraceutical is a combination of the words “nutrients” and “pharmaceuticals”, and refer to any products that are derived from food sources to provide health benefits in addition to the primary nutritional value initially found in the food. In other words, foods that are medically or nutritionally functional to the human body are used to naturally aid with health concerns such as weight loss or appetite suppression. Nutraceuticals can also include ingredients like vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids and more to help improve your overall health. They are instrumental in naturally enhancing the results of your weight loss plan.
Lipotropic B12 Injections
Lipotropic injections, also sometimes called lipo injections, include a combination of ingredients that are administered by needle injections to increase the breakdown of fat and promote overall feelings of wellness. Lipotropics are naturally occurring substances in the body that affect how fat is metabolized. These lipotropics are combined with B12, often thought of as the energy vitamin, and are delivered weekly to speed up fat-burning and fight off fatigue. When paired with a comprehensive weight loss and meal plan, lipotropic B12 injections can optimize the amount of fat you lose.
Unlike many vitamin supplements that are taken orally in pill form, IV therapy injects a cocktail of vitamins or natural health-boosting ingredients intravenously into your bloodstream. The results of IV therapy are immediate and drastic, as the body can much more efficiently absorb these ingredients in a liquid form. Our unique IV therapy bar has a wide range of infusion choices that can aid with:
- Weight loss
- Immune system boosting
Growth Hormone Peptide Frag
Human growth hormones (HGH) provide a handful of benefits to our body. Growth hormone peptide frag refers to the human growth hormone peptide fragment 176-191, also known as HGH frag 176-191. This specific fragment of growth hormone works to prevent the development of lipids and fatty acids in the body. By utilizing synthetic versions of this HGH created in a lab, the 176-191 fragments are extracted and added to your body through injections so they can attach themselves to your actual HGH.
With the help of this HGH frag, your body’s metabolism will run faster and more efficiently than it would on its own. This results in your existing fat burning away more rapidly and lowers your body mass index (BMI) without dramatically altering your diet or lifestyle.
Pharmaceutical Glycemic Agonists
Pharmaceutical glycemic agonists are a class of supplemental medication that mimic the actions of a hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) which stimulates insulin secretion in response to rising blood sugar in the body after a meal, which lowers the overall blood sugar levels in your body. These drugs also work to suppress the appetite and keep you feeling fuller longer by delaying the digestion of food from your stomach to your small intestine. When apart of an active and healthy lifestyle this drug can help you to lose weight and fight off food cravings to get you to your desired results faster.
