What is a Medically Assisted Weight Loss Plan?

A medically assisted weight loss program is one that medical professionals actively monitor. Southern Skin and Wellness's dedicated team, including a physician, clinical pharmacist, metabolic nutritionist, and nurse, individualize a program for your weight loss goals.

Our program starts with a comprehensive evaluation that leads to recommendations for lifestyle changes, prescription medications, diet plans, exercise regimens, and continuous progress monitoring. This all-encompassing approach to losing weight is safe, effective, and long-lasting.

Monthly Membership

Another way that we simplify this process is by providing patients with the ability to take part in an all-inclusive monthly membership. This membership fulfills each patient's unique needs without surprises or hidden costs. We will discuss this membership at your initial consultation and answer any questions.

Physical Exam and Laboratory Studies

This program begins with a physician evaluation, during which our team of medical professionals will ask questions about your medical history and perform a physical exam. You will undergo a body composition analysis and an initial weigh-in.

We'll then take a blood sample for laboratory analysis to screen for conditions that may contribute to or be associated with weight gain, such as thyroid dysfunction, dyslipidemia, diabetes, hormone imbalances, kidney dysfunction, and/or nutritional deficiencies. The laboratory studies will help us identify and address any underlying conditions you may have.

Dietary Changes and Exercise Regimens

Custom-tailored diet and exercise regimens by our in-house metabolic nutritionist are a unique key benefit of our medical weight loss program. You'll meet with our metabolic nutritionist, who will work alongside others in our medical team during the initial evaluation. The nutritionist will record your baseline parameters. Our metabolic nutritionist will also provide ongoing monitoring throughout the program and design a diet and exercise regimen while serving as a coach who meets with you for weekly follow-ups and weigh-ins. We use state-of-the-art body composition analysis technology to establish your baseline metrics. Then, we can send you home with a Bluetooth-enabled digital scale to track your progress during the weight loss journey.

Eating the right foods and getting regular activity are vital to losing weight, maintaining results, and adopting a healthier lifestyle long-term. Once you get your diet under control and make exercise part of your daily routine, you'll set yourself up for success long after your program is over.

Prescription Medications

Our physician and clinical pharmacist will review your information and determine if you are a suitable candidate for prescription medication(s) to assist with your weight loss program. This includes checking for interactions with any existing home medications or dietary supplements, underlying medical conditions, family history, and other factors.

Our clinical pharmacist can also educate patients about medication administration, review possible side effects, help set expectations, and schedule phone follow-ups after starting medication(s). The medical staff, including the physician and clinical pharmacist, is also on call to answer patients' questions from home.

Our Prescription Medication Options

Multiple medications are available to achieve and maintain weight loss safely. These medications can help patients reach a healthy weight by various actions, including suppressing appetite, increasing energy levels, reducing cravings for unhealthy foods, helping the body process fat, balancing blood sugar levels, and increasing feelings of fullness.  

The prescription medications used in our program are:

  • Semaglutide
  • Tirzepatide

Am I A Good Candidate?

The best candidates for our medically assisted weight loss programs are patients who have tried to lose weight on their own but haven't been successful for one reason or another. Whether you need to lose ten pounds, 50 pounds, or more, we can help determine why you have yet to be successful and design a regimen that helps you reach your goal weight and supports and improves your overall health.

We treat each patient individually, never using a one-size-fits-all approach. For that reason, you can trust that when you begin a weight loss program at Southern Skin and Wellness, it will be uniquely tailored to your exact needs, blood panel results, and treatment goals.

An All-Inclusive Monthly Membership

Another way that we simplify this process is by providing patients with the ability to take part in an all-inclusive monthly membership. This membership fulfills each patient's unique needs without surprises or hidden costs. We will discuss this membership at your initial consultation and answer any questions.
