Currently, more than 35% of U.S. adults are obese. With obese individuals, weight loss doctors are almost necessary for reversing the effects of obesity and getting back on the track of a healthy lifestyle. Seeing a weight loss Dr. is somewhat of a last-resort for individuals struggling with obesity. For some people, years and years of living an unhealthy lifestyle make it almost impossible to lose weight, and removing stubborn fat pockets by just watching what they eat and exercising daily isn’t enough.
In these cases, a liposuction procedure may be a suitable option. Liposuction should not be a treatment for obesity, nor a replacement for regular exercise and healthy eating habits. Instead, medical weight loss programs and liposuction should be combined with healthy eating habits and regular exercise. To be a good candidate for liposuction, the patient must be over the age of 18, be in good general health, have an ongoing diet and exercise regiment in place, and have fatty pockets of tissue available in certain body areas.
Besides liposuction procedures, a weight loss Dr. may prescribe an hCG diet plan for beating obesity. Most hCG diet plans obese patients to only 500 calories per day, and the diet consists of of mostly organic, unprocessed foods along with the hCG injections or serum drops under the tongue. hCG is a natural hormone that stands for “Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.” This natural hormone is found in all human bodies, and when taken in very small doses, it aids in burning abnormal fat, which is usually found in excess in our stomach, back, butt, hips, thighs and underside of arms. With an hCG diet, the body will consume the abnormal fat and after the diet is completed, the metabolism will be reset.
