Semaglutide Injections at Fort Worth Plastic Surgery
Medical weight loss is a specialized field of medicine focused on helping individuals achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It is a comprehensive approach that addresses the underlying causes of weight gain, such as hormonal imbalances, metabolic disorders and lifestyle factors.
Unlike fad diets or quick fixes, medical weight loss at Fort Worth Plastic Surgery involves a personalized plan to fit your unique needs and goals. It may include a combination of lifestyle changes, nutritional guidance, exercise and medical interventions, such as semaglutide injections, to ensure effective and long-lasting results.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide injections are a revolutionary new treatment for weight loss that have been found safe and effective in clinical trials. Semaglutide is a type of medication that mimics a hormone your body naturally makes, called GLP-1. This hormone plays a role in controlling hunger and managing the levels of sugar in your blood. By imitating GLP-1, semaglutide helps to keep your appetite in check and your blood sugar stable.
How Do Semaglutide Injections Work?
Semaglutide injections work by targeting the GLP-1 receptors in the brain, which are responsible for regulating appetite and food intake. By activating these receptors, semaglutide achieves several actions in the body:
- Helps suppress appetite and increase satiety
- Reduces cravings
- Slows down the rate at which food is emptied from the stomach
- Promotes feelings of fullness
- Reduces the likelihood of overeating
- Helps stabilize blood sugar
- Reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
- Lowers blood pressure
- Improves cholesterol levels
- Reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke
Semaglutide is safe, effective and has FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration) approval for weight management.
Who Should Get Semaglutide Injections for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide is a safe and effective weight loss treatment for individuals who are overweight or obese and have been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Semaglutide injections are particularly effective for individuals who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or who have weight-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
