What is Medical Weight Loss with Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

Medical weight loss with Semaglutide and Tirzepatide represents a groundbreaking approach to managing obesity and associated conditions. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are injectable medications approved for use in a weight loss program for adults with obesity or at least one weight-related condition (like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol). 

These weight loss medications are part of a class of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists, which are designed to mimic the action of the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, helping regulate appetite and food intake along your weight loss journey.

How Does It Work?

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide work by enhancing the body’s natural ability to control blood sugar and appetite. They slow down gastric emptying, which helps individuals feel fuller longer, reducing overall food intake. Additionally, these medications directly affect the brain’s appetite-regulating centers, leading to a decrease in hunger and an increase in feelings of satiety. This dual action assists in an effective medical weight loss program at our Scottsdale weight loss center. Our weightloss program is customized to your unique weightloss goal and therefore you are given not only the medication but a customized program that includes vitamin shots, food plan, weekly check ins, dose adjustments, and body contouring

  • Significant weight loss: Clinical trials have shown substantial weight reduction in individuals treated with these medications.

What to Expect Post-Treatment

After starting treatment with Semaglutide or Tirzepatide, patients can expect a gradual reduction in weight. The full effects of weight loss medicine typically become evident over several weeks to months. In order to achieve a healthy weight, patients must adhere to the full weight loss program. Regular follow-ups with ongoing support from a healthcare provider are essential to monitor progress, adjust the treatment plan as needed, and manage any side effects.

Common side effects may include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation, but these are usually temporary and diminish over time as you achieve your weight management goals. 

Post-treatment, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced low-fat diet and regular physical activity, is crucial for sustaining weight loss and improving overall health.
