Weight Loss Q & A

What is a medical weight loss plan?

A medical weight loss plan involves getting to the root of your weight gain.

Your dedicated certified physician evaluates your overall health through laboratory testing and physical examinations on a regular basis. This way, you can find out if there is something that is affecting your weight, such as abnormal hormone levels.

Your tailored weight loss plan could include:

  • Nutrition and diet counseling
  • IV vitamin injections or infusions
  • FDA-approved weight loss medication
  • Exercise technique counseling and planning

By combining several of these options and customizing the plan based on your lifestyle, you can lose weight quickly and easily.

How much weight can I lose?

During your initial weight loss evaluation at Soho Antiaging, Dr. Torabi or Dr. Barseghian check your overall health and help you determine an ideal weight loss plan for your needs.

Initially, as you start incorporating healthier eating habits and a regular exercise regimen, you can lose up to five pounds per week or more. This is normal and should only be temporary in the beginning stages.

As you continue your journey and get closer to your ideal weight, your goal should be to lose about one to two pounds weekly. This gradual weight loss better helps you keep the excess weight off for good. Otherwise, if you continue losing weight too quickly, you risk gaining weight again in the future.

Which weight loss medications are best?

Dr. Torabi and Dr. Barseghian both have extensive training in prescribing weight loss medications. You might benefit from medication that controls your appetite and cravings.

For some, taking a weight loss medication that decreases fat absorption is more effective. Because a medical weight loss plan isn’t a one-size-fits-all journey, your doctor may need to adjust your dosages or even change your medications, depending on your needs.

Many clients also benefit from medical-grade vitamin injections or infusions. By injecting metabolism-boosting nutrients — like B vitamins and magnesium — directly into your system, they can go to work right away, without waiting to be metabolized and possibly destroyed through your digestive tract.
