Weight loss can be accomplished through several medical weight loss programs available at Jolie Plastic surgery. These programs have a strong success rate as they combine a variety of non-surgical procedures, diet, fitness, and healthy activities monitored by a physician. The guidance and support of medical professionals when choosing a weight-loss program are essential to keeping the results since maintaining a healthy weight is often a lifetime commitment. You may consider medical weight loss if you are experiencing a weight-related health condition such as sleep apnea or cardiovascular disease. If you want to lose weight in preparation for weight loss surgery or have a history of weight-related cancers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer, you may also be a good candidate for this procedure. The average cost of medical weight loss is $2,725 based on the procedure you pick.
The HCG diet is an extreme diet and non-surgical treatment that helps you lose as much as 1-2 pounds a day, and you won’t feel hungry in the process. You will eat only 500 calories a day and take a daily dose of HGG diet drops or injections. HGG is a hormone produced by the placenta early during pregnancy to help the baby develop properly. Most of the calories come from lunch and dinner and mainly from protein sources. Carbohydrate-rich foods such as pasta, muffins, and bagels are not allowed. While this diet is safe for the majority of patients, some people such as pregnant or nursing women, transplant patients, patients with hormonal-type cancer, Type 1 diabetics, and other conditions, may not be good candidates for this procedure. Patients are advised to start an exercise regime and a more active lifestyle to avoid gaining too much weight. The average cost of HGG diet is $2,700.
The gastric balloon is a weight loss system that helps patients lose weight quickly and effectively through a variety of steps starting with the placement of the Orbera balloon via an endoscopy, which will remain in the stomach for six months. The procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes, and you can go home soon after it is performed. You might be a good candidate for Orbera if you desire to lose 30 pounds or more, you have a BMI of 30-40 and have tried several medications, diets, and exercise regimes with no success. During recovery, you may experience gastric discomfort including nausea and vomiting, which is entirely natural as your system adapts to the new changes. Medications will be prescribed to help you cope with the symptoms. Patients are advised to switch to a liquid diet for three days, drink plenty of fluids, and avoid coffee, chocolate, carbonated drinks, fatty foods, and ice cream. The average cost of this procedure is $4,275.
