Medical Weight Loss in Layton, UT

Losing weight is no easy feat. If you are someone struggling with weight loss, now may be the perfect time for you to seek help from medical professionals. For some people, diet and exercise are not all it takes to achieve their goal weight, and you may not yet be ready for extreme weight loss surgeries such as a tummy tuck or liposuction. Hormones, medical history, and body type can all play a factor in how fast and how much weight a patient can lose, and when all these things are considered in one personalized treatment plan, weight loss becomes achievable, not impossible.

At Elevation AestheticsDr. Joseph Jensen and his team of highly-trained estheticians, who all specialize in medical aesthetics, understand the importance of looking and feeling your best in your own body. So when it comes to weight loss, Elevation Aesthetics is there for their patients every step of the way.

With our new Medical Weight Loss program, patients interested in long-term weight loss results will go through a monitored, customized weight loss program to achieve a goal weight they can maintain for the rest of their lives.

What Is Medical Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss involves losing weight with a little more support than most people. While regular may undergo a weight loss program independently, at Elevation Aesthetics, each patient under the medical weight loss program will be monitored and supported by Dr. Jensen at every step of the way on your weight loss journey. With a customized weight loss plan, a diet fit to your body’s needs, and an exercise routine that fits your body’s capabilities, medical weight loss doesn’t just help patients lose weight. It helps them build the habits they need to establish a healthy routine that will help them maintain their goal weight for a lifetime.

Who Is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss?

If you have a body mass index of 30 or above, you may be a candidate for medical weight loss. If you have also tried losing weight naturally but haven’t seen results, medical weight loss may be the treatment you need to supplement your current weight loss plans in order to finally achieve your goal weight. Patients whose overall health is affected by their current weight can also benefit from medical weight loss, as each plan can be customized to address the needs of each patient’s health conditions.

What Can I Medically Take to Help Lose Weight?

Along with supervision, accountability, and the in-person support that our medical weight loss program can provide, each patient may be eligible for taking a supplemented weight loss medication. The FDA has approved the following for long-term use for weight loss:

  • Liraglutide (Saxenda)
  • Orlistat (Xenical, Alli)
  • Phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia)
  • Semaglutide (Wegovy)

What Is the Best Medical Weight Loss Program?

The best medical weight loss program is the one that shows results for you, but generally, the best kind of weight loss program is one that can be customized to each patient. By individually planning the best medications, best diet, and best exercises to do based on each patient’s body and needs, these actions will not only help you lose weight but also help you restore balance to the body, leading to long-term weight loss. Medical weight loss program customizations can include the following:

  • Plant-based diet
  • PCOS or the anti-inflammatory diet
  • Diet for people with diabetes

Are Medical Weight Loss Programs Covered by Insurance?

Most healthcare companies do not cover payment for diet planning. However, if your weight loss is a medical necessity, your insurance may be able to fully or partially cover your cost of treatment. Consult with your healthcare insurance provider regarding your situation.

At Elevation Aesthetics, we are happy to work with each patient to develop a payment plan that meets your budget.
