According to recent studies, about a third of all Americans are obese. The good news is that Dr. Mark Youssef with YOUnique Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Monica is here to help. We offer an exceptional program of weight loss in the Los Angeles area, without adverse side effects. We use a three-step medically supervised system that uses a combination of vitamins, minerals, supplements and prescription medication to help you obtain your weight loss goals.
We screen for pre-existing conditions prior to starting the program to make sure you are candidate. We also require weekly visits to monitor not only your weight loss progress but to make sure you reach your weight loss goal safely and effectively. The weekly visits are an integral part of our program.
You will stay in this phase until you reach your goal weight. Your initial visit takes about 90 minutes and consists of the following:
Your weekly visits consist of a 30-minute appointment and include the following:
Once you've reached your goal weight, you will transition to bi-weekly visits, and your meal plan will be modified to add foods back into your diet. This phase is crucial so immediate weight gain does not occur. During this phase, your metabolism is adjusting.
Once your weight management process reaches the maintenance phase, visits are scheduled monthly. You will receive personalized instruction and literature relevant to behavior, nutrition, and fitness to help you maintain your weight loss goals. This keeps you accountable, and if there is more than a 5 percent weight gain, we get you back on track immediately.
