So many patients came to us looking to surgery to fix their weight-loss problems, but surgery is rarely the answer.
ATLANTA, GA, September 12, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sometimes, plastic surgery isn't the right option for patients who are trying to return to the physique of their youths. For this reason, Northside Plastic Surgery has launched a medical weight loss program to augment its invasive and non-invasive treatment options, offering an hCG regiment for patients trying to lose weight.
hCG is a hormone present at very low levels in both men and women throughout their lifetimes. The magic of hCG is that it triggers the body to burn fat stores.
"So many patients came to us looking to surgery to fix their weight-loss problems," said Dr. Mike Majmundar, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Northside Plastic Surgery. "But surgery is rarely the answer. For so many of these people, it was about maintaining a weight loss regimen that could generate results. After a great deal of research, we decided that offering a medical weight loss with hCG program would be beneficial to our patients."
Medical weight loss with hCG combines high-quality hCG injections with a low-calorie diet. The hCG injections encourage the elimination of fat cells and forces the body to burn the fat stored in the stomach, thighs, hips, and similar areas of the body. Because the body is constantly feeding on broken-down fat, patients feel as though they've consumed 2,000 to 3,000 calories per day, despite a 600- to 800-calories-per-day diet. Because hCG acts as an appetite suppressant, patients usually do not feel hungry while on the hCG program, even though their calorie intake is greatly reduced.
In addition, hCG elevates the body's hormone levels, including testosterone, which creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) that counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown) that most diets cause. With hCG, muscle is protected while pure fat is lost, causing patients to lose inches where it counts. This means that patients become leaner, but with more muscle. In turn, the higher ratio of muscle will boost metabolism and help maintain weight loss long after the treatment is completed.
Northside Plastic Surgery offers hCG consultations with one of its medical weight loss providers in its Atlanta or Alpharetta offices.
