Semaglutide, sold under the brand name Ozempic, is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which stimulate insulin secretion and suppress glucagon release, lowering blood sugar levels. In addition, Semaglutide has also been approved for the treatment of obesity in some countries, as it can help to reduce appetite and promote weight loss. A 40 week long clinical trial showed that patients on semaglutide 1mg lost an average of 6.2kg (13 lbs). We now offer semaglutide at higher doses than 1mg safely as well.
Tirzepatide, sold under the brand name Mounjaro, is a medication currently used to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity. It targets GIP and GLP-1 hormone receptors to regulate glucose and appetite control. In clinical trials, Tirzepatide has shown impressive results for weight loss and improved glycemic control. A 40 week long clinical trial showed that patients on tirzepatide at doses of 5mg, 10mg, and 15mg lost an average of 7.8 kg (17 lbs), 10.3kg (22 lbs), and 12.4kg (27 lbs) respectively.

During your initial consultation with our healthcare professionals, we’ll review your medical history, current medications, and lifestyle habits to determine if medical weight loss is safe and appropriate for you. We may also perform a physical exam and order blood tests to assess your overall health.
Our team will work with you to create a personalized plan that addresses your unique needs and goals. To prepare for the program, you may be required to make some lifestyle changes. This could include making dietary changes tailored to your individual needs and preferences. We can help you develop a healthy eating plan that meets your nutritional requirements while promoting sustainable weight loss.
As our Miami medical weight loss patients progress through their program, they can expect to start seeing results within a few weeks to a few months of starting the program. Once the program is complete, it’s important for you to continue practicing healthy habits to maintain your results.
This may include following a healthy diet, staying physically active, and avoiding unhealthy habits such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption. You may also benefit from ongoing support and guidance from a healthcare professional, such as attending regular follow-up appointments or joining a support group.
Ultimately, the key to maintaining your results from medical weight loss is to adopt sustainable lifestyle changes that can be maintained long-term. By continuing to make healthy choices and staying committed to your health and wellness goals, you can achieve lasting results and improve your overall quality of life.
