What to Expect

Before, During, & After Medical Weight Loss in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Before you start your medical weight loss Houston patients will need an initial consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon and registered nurse. They will go over diet, medical history, and lifestyle habits. They will measure your BMI, body fat percentage, and metabolic function.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Once all that is assessed, they will describe the kind of medication or treatment you will need in order to meet your goals. You will know how the treatment works and how it’s manufactured. Depending on your analysis, our medical professionals may recommend: Hormonal Supplement - Semaglutide, Lipotropic Metabolic Injections and/or Non-injectable Oral Tablets - Bella Tablets

3. Track Your Progress.

Houston medical weight loss patients will come in for a monthly follow-up where we will assess and discuss your response to the treatment plan we picked. Only then can we decide if we need to make any dose adjustments or add any other supplements to your program.
