Approaches to Non-Surgical Weight Loss

Approaches to Non-Surgical Weight Loss

Weight concerns can significantly impact a person’s overall health. When they start researching the options for losing weight, they will quickly discover numerous non- surgical options. Of course, many people prefer non-invasive solutions when possible.

As you begin this journey, it is important to understand the available solutions and who should lead your treatment plan. Medical professionals at MedSpas often offer non-surgical weight loss methods to patients. Many people who are overweight need assistance, as losing weight is a challenging task. As you learn more about the non-surgical options available, you can make the most informed decision regarding your path forward.

Types of non-surgical weight loss

Lipotropic injections

Lipotropic injections consist of vitamins like B-12 and amino acids like choline, inositol, and methionine. Injecting patients with these compounds provides various benefits, including:

▪ Methionine helps remove fat and cholesterol from the body

▪Choline helps prevent liver diseases by removing fat deposits in the liver

▪Inositol improves the body’s ability to break down and remove fat

▪ B vitamins can provide an energy boost and even improve mood

Doctors often recommend lipotropic injections for people who have already lost weight with dieting and exercising but are stuck at a plateau. The treatment can be the boost that their body needs to get rid of the remaining stubborn fat. Lipotropic injections are an effective weight loss tool, especially for those who have a slower metabolism or have difficulty losing weight through dieting or nutrition plans. Lastly, lipotropic injections help the liver detox, allowing for excess waste to be properly discarded from the body, and speeds up metabolism through the vitamin B-complex in the injections.

The HCG diet

The HCG diet is one of the more commonly chosen weight loss options for those who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure to lose weight. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, a natural hormone the body makes when someone is pregnant. The purpose of using HCG is to help reset one’s metabolism, allowing one to lose weight while at the same time not experiencing any fatigue or even feeling hungry.

Those who choose this non-surgical weight loss option will have a small amount of HCG regularly injected into their bodies while undergoing this weight loss program. Along with regular injections, it is necessary to follow a low-calorie diet. This dieting program lasts about eight weeks and requires those who choose this weight loss method to eat many healthy, nutritious foods. They will also need to avoid eating high-calorie, unhealthy foods. A medical team will give those in the HCG weight options on properly following this non-surgical weight-loss method and achieving their weight-loss goals.

Endoscopic weight loss procedures

Endoscopic weight loss procedures, like the gastric balloon, are a promising new option for people who want help losing weight but do not want (or may not qualify for) bariatric surgery. Endoscopic weight loss procedures achieve better weight loss than medication.

An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera at its tip that allows a doctor to view patients’ internal organs or perform a procedure. The endoscope is inserted through a small opening in the body, such as the mouth, to reach the GI tract. Special instruments can be passed through the endoscope so the doctor can place a device or medication into the stomach.

Gastric balloon

The gastric balloon may be a temporary solution for adults with a BMI between 30 and 40. First, the doctor will give the patient a mild sedative and then, using an endoscope passed through the mouth, insert a soft, durable balloon into the stomach, filling the balloon with a saline solution. This process takes up space in the stomach, reducing the amount of food and drink the patient can fit and making them feel full longer.

This procedure is quick, and you go home hours later. However, it is a temporary option for patients wanting a fast weight-loss solution that gets their bodies used to eat less. A doctor or nutritionist can help patients recover, enable their bodies to eat more healthy foods, and resist the urge to eat frequently or a lot during one sitting.

Other endoscopic procedures

Other endoscopic procedures include the Aspire Assist device and Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty or Gastric Plication. However, these involve small incisions and stitching to reduce the size of the stomach. Therefore, they are not completely non-surgical or invasive but provide a temporary solution to weight loss as the patient navigates their weight loss journey.
