A healthy weight is an important part of a healthy life. But nearly three in four Americans are overweight — and losing excess weight isn’t easy.
For many people struggling to lose weight, traditional diet and exercise programs aren’t always enough to help them achieve their goals. That’s where we come in.
Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica offer medical weight loss management and hormone optimization to help you finally see success and achieve the healthier lifestyle you desire.
Medical weight loss management is a personalized program to help you lose weight. We consider your unique health needs and goals and create a program that includes health check-ups, diet and exercise plans, and more.
The main benefit of medical weight loss management is that it’s not a one-size-fits-all plan. It takes into account your individual needs and goals. At the beginning of your program, we take a medical history and evaluate your current health status and lifestyle factors.
With that information, we develop a personalized nutrition and targeted fitness plan to help you achieve your goals. We may also order additional testing, like a hormone panel, or prescribe medications to help you lose weight.
Weight loss medications can help suppress your appetite, boost your metabolism, or block fat absorption in your body. However, it's important to note that these medications should only be used under close medical supervision.
Along with helping you lose weight, we can also provide the education and support you need to maintain your results long-term. This can include counseling on nutrition and exercise, stress management techniques, and behavior modification.
Hormones play a crucial role in regulating your body’s metabolism, energy levels, and fat storage. That means certain hormonal imbalances can cause weight gain or make it very difficult to lose weight on your own.
Hormone optimization is a medical approach that involves balancing and optimizing your body’s hormone levels to improve your health and help you lose weight. We thoroughly evaluate your hormone levels through blood tests and other diagnostic tools.
Based on your results, we create a personalized plan to balance and optimize your hormone levels. Common treatments include hormone replacement therapy, lifestyle modifications, and nutritional supplements.
For example, if you have low thyroid hormone levels, taking thyroid hormone replacement medication can help regulate your metabolism and make it easier to lose weight.
If you have an estrogen or testosterone imbalance, hormone replacement therapy can help reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, and improve your body’s ability to burn calories.
Combining medical weight loss management and hormone optimization can be a powerful way to lose weight and maximize your overall health. By addressing both the physical and hormonal factors contributing to weight gain, this approach can help you achieve long-term weight loss success and improve your overall well-being.
At Modern Aesthetica, we work with you to create a personalized plan that combines the best aspects of medical weight loss management and hormone optimization. Common treatments include prescription medications, hormone replacement therapy, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle modifications — all tailored to your unique needs and goals.
In addition to weight loss, this approach can provide a range of other health benefits, like:
