Weight Management Q & A

What is weight management?

Weight management helps you set and achieve realistic weight loss goals. The medically supervised services ensure you have the resources and support you need to lose extra pounds safely and maintain a healthy weight in the long term.

Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics provides personalized weight management services to help you reach a healthy body weight. 

Yessica takes an integrative, holistic approach to helping you shed excess weight and can also address underlying health issues that make weight loss more difficult.

When should I consider weight management?

Schedule a weight management consultation at Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics if you haven’t been able to lose weight on your own or aren’t sure how to start.

You can also benefit from the weight management services if you have a lot of weight to lose or have obesity-related health complications like Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), and arthritis.

By losing even a small percentage of excess weight, you can reduce your disease risk and enjoy a higher quality of life. However, weight loss can be difficult if you have thyroid issues or other conditions that affect your metabolism. You may also find it harder to lose weight as you age.

What can I expect during a weight management consultation?

During your initial consultation at Vincit Medical Practice & Aesthetics, Yessica reviews your personal and family medical histories, your existing health, and your weight loss goals.

She also completes a physical exam and may order diagnostic tests to identify underlying medical conditions that interfere with your metabolism. If she identifies any issues that affect your ability to lose weight, she can address them through a chronic care treatment plan.

Based on your exam and test results, Yessica designs a weight loss program to your needs. She uses holistic strategies like:

  • Meal plans
  • Portion control
  • Daily exercise
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Mindfulness techniques
  • Supplemental nutrients
  • Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy
  • Prescribed Medications as needed

As you achieve each weight loss goal, Yessica helps you set new ones and provides guidance to achieve them. She also recommends long-term lifestyle changes you can make to keep the weight off for good.
