Medically Supervised Weight Loss at TLC’s Houston Weight Loss Clinic
The Medical Weight Loss program at our clinic combines proven techniques and current technology with the knowledge and understanding of an experienced team of medical professionals. This non-surgical approach can benefit patients who are not candidates for bariatric surgery, those who are interested in weight loss procedures and would like to try a non-surgical approach first, and bariatric surgery patients who are required by their insurance plan to participate in a medically supervised diet prior to weight loss surgery approval. Medically supervised weight loss is a dynamic approach in which patients work closely with our doctors and registered dietitians. Your medical weight loss plan may include:
- Body Analysis using InBody570®
- Customized low-calorie diet
- Nutrition education
- Lifestyle guidance
- Exercise recommendations
Weight Loss Solutions
In addition to medically supervised weight loss plans, we also offer non-surgical weight loss procedures. Our doctors can evaluate your medical history, health, and weight loss goals to determine which option may be best for you.
Prescription Medications for Weight Loss
There are a variety of prescription medications available that can help patients lose weight. Our experienced Houston weight loss doctors may recommend a medication in addition to a surgical or non-surgical weight loss procedure, or as part of a medically supervised weight loss program. Each medication contains different active ingredients and your doctor will evaluate your medical history, your health, and your weight loss goals to determine if a weight loss medication may be right for you. Weight loss medications are intended to be used alongside a healthy diet and exercise plan. Medications we offer include:
Adipex, also known as Adipex-P, is a phentermine based appetite suppressant that can help patients lose weight by encouraging a reduced calorie intake.
Belviq utilizes an active ingredient called lorcaserin to target the serotonin receptors that affect appetite. This weight loss pill can help patients control appetite and feel full with less food.
The active ingredients in Contrave, bupropion and naltrexone, work to control the body’s food cravings. Cravings are one of the top reasons weight loss attempts fail, and Contrave can help patients stay on track.
Saxenda is an injectable medication for adults with obesity or weight-related medical conditions. It is dispensed using a preloaded injection pen and is sometimes referred to as a “weight loss shot.”
Qsymia is a dual action weight loss medication that contains phentermine and topiramate, two active ingredients that work together to reduce appetite and promote weight loss.
