Ready to Join the Semaglutide Weight-Loss Revolution?

While we tend to toss around descriptions like “game-changing” and “revolutionary” with abandon, without much to back up these lofty claims, there’s a good case to be made for using them for a new class of weight-loss medications.

Originally formulated for the millions of people with diabetes — nearly 12% of the United States population — semaglutide injections are not only lowering glucose levels, they’re helping people to shed unhealthy pounds. 

If you consider that nearly 1 in 3 American adults is overweight and more than 2 out of 5 have obesity, this new class of weight-loss medications is very good news for millions of people.

Here at Cosmetic Surgery Center, we pride ourselves on offering some fantastic tools to help you look and feel your best. As part of these efforts, Dr. Trent Fogleman is pleased to offer weight-loss services based on semaglutide injections as well as lipotropic injections.

Here’s how these weight-loss tools can help you finally declare victory in your battle of the bulge.

The power of semaglutide for losing weight

Let’s start with the incredible role that semaglutide can play in helping you lose weight. This medication delivers glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists into your body that mimic a hormone that your body naturally produces — the GLP-1 hormone.

This hormone is secreted in your small intestine, and it plays several roles:

Through semaglutide injections, we introduce GLP-1 receptor agonists that work in the same way. They not only lower your glucose levels, but your stomach doesn't empty as quickly, which curbs your hunger by leaving you feeling fuller for longer.

According to ongoing trials and studies, these drugs may finally hold the key to successful weight loss,as great results are piling up. For example, one study found that people who used semaglutide injections lost up to 11% of their overall body weight within six months.

Boosting your weight loss with lipotropic injections

While we feel that the once-weekly semaglutide injections are more than sufficient in helping you to gain control over your weight, we also boost these injections with lipotropic injections.

At the heart of lipotropic injections is vitamin B12, which may help boost fat metabolism. We can also add other nutrients and vitamins that support your journey toward a healthy weight.

Seeing your weight loss through

Semaglutide has proven amazingly effective in helping people whose attempts to lose meaningful weight have failed, and we’re confident it can do the same for you. Still, we recommend that you don’t rely on these injections alone.

Instead, we suggest that you use the time that you’re taking semaglutide to overhaul your diet and exercise regimens so you can keep the weight off. Instead of eating smaller amounts of junk food, transition your diet to fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, which can help you come out the other side of your weight-loss journey with more vibrant health. 

Adding exercise improves your cardiovascular health. And if you’re lifting weights or doing resistance training, the extra muscle you build helps your body burn additional calories each day.

So, while semaglutide is revolutionary and, indeed, a game-changer, you should hold up your end with some lifestyle changes that help protect your health and your weight-loss results long into the future.
