“Your Body, Your Way”
What is Medical Weight Loss?
Medical weight loss is physician-supervised weight loss. The Silhouette Clinic’s medical weight loss program finds the reason behind weight gain and comes up with a noninvasive, nonsurgical plan for how to lose it. The doctors and dietitians at the Silhouette Clinic help find the right balance of medicine, nutrition, and behavior changes that lead to weight loss. We are here to support, empower, advise, and provide exercise recommendations tailored to each individual.
Services include a consultation with an obesity-certified medical provider, meal planning, prescriptions, nutrition counseling with dieticians, and regular follow-ups. Unlike other weight loss programs that are part of a subscription, meal kit, pill, injection, surgery, or mass-produced “solution.” Your medical weight loss program is custom-fit to you, with medical professionals there to supervise and consult throughout. You’re not on your own.
How does medical weight loss work?
Many patients can lose weight…only to see it return. At the Silhouette Clinic, we use medications to treat the biological/hormonal drivers of weight gain to help you lose weight and keep it off. You will undergo a medical evaluation and then get a prescription for the medication appropriate for you. You will continue to be under medical supervision, while our registered dietitians work directly with you to achieve sustained weight loss by creating a plan tailored to your individual needs and medical history.
Does each person have a different medical weight loss plan?
Losing weight takes more than willpower; there are often many underlying medical, genetic, hormonal, behavioral, and other factors involved. Our providers are certified in obesity medicine. They will work with you to decide which medication is best for your case. Our dietitians take a holistic approach to your overall wellness and create individualized, scientifically-based comprehensive plans. Each plan incorporates nutritional, behavioral, and exercise recommendations that are the most effective for your unique physique.
What is the process of each medical weight loss consultation?
You will have an initial medical consultation with one of our providers certified in obesity medicine. You will receive a prescription for the medication deemed medically appropriate in your specific case (such as GLP-1 agonists). You will have regular medical follow-up visits to monitor your progress and adjust your medication.
At your one-on-one visits with your dietitian, you will have their undivided attention so you can share your medical history, lifestyle, goals, and concerns, and discuss your progress. During these meetings, you will receive mindful eating counseling, individualized meal plans, coaching, and nutrition guidance.
Maintain a healthy weight over the long term.
Our multi-pronged, holistic approach is what, in part, makes long-term weight loss success achievable. Medical weight loss is not a magic pill or a one-time surgery. It’s a natural result of accountability, medical expertise, lifestyle habits, and medical prescriptions. This combination of factors will help you meet your weight goal and maintain it in a balanced, supported way. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, though you may start to see results in the first week.
During your consultation, you may inquire about alternative outpatient weight loss procedures facilitated by the Silhouette Clinic. However, medical weight loss is the least invasive nonsurgical solution. A long-term healthy weight is attainable between the expertise of a medical weight loss doctor and your commitment and openness. The Silhouette Clinic is here to help you form healthy habits and stick to them.
Maintaining a healthy weight over the long term not only helps you feel better, but also reduces your risk of developing many health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and heart disease.
