Understanding Semaglutide For Weight Loss

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. These medications mimic a hormone in the body that helps control appetite, fullness, and digestion. Semaglutide encourages patients to eat less and eat fewer simple carbohydrates, processed foods, and unhealthy fats. However, it also slows gastric emptying which allows patients to feel fuller for longer.

Ozempic and Wegovy are the two brand names under which semaglutide injections are advertised. Ozempic primarily refers to uses of semaglutide that involve a specific medical condition, whereas Wegovy refers specifically to semaglutide for weight loss. Other than a few small differences in dosage and non-active ingredients, the two medications are the same. For example, it is common to add B12 to compounded semaglutide because B12 helps ease the side effects of semaglutide such as fatigue and stomach upset.

Benefits & Risks

Wegovy Olympia comes with many possible benefits and advantages. Some of the benefits may include:

  • Feel full sooner and for longer
  • Reduce appetite and cravings
  • Avoid weight plateaus and setbacks
  • Slows gastric emptying
  • Promotes better metabolic health
  • Controls blood sugar levels
  • FDA-approved for weight loss (one of few medical weight loss medications approved by the FDA)
  • Works quickly and effectively
  • Can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other major conditions sometimes associated with excess weight
  • Provides a good option for patients who have difficulty managing their weight due to a medical condition
  • Safe for long term use
  • Injection treatment is only necessary once per week
  • Monitored by a weight loss provider at Seattle Plastic Surgery

Like all medications, semaglutide does come with some risks. If a patient has certain medical conditions or takes another GLP-1 medication for type 2 diabetes, they may not be candidates for semaglutide Olympia. Some of the potential risks or drawbacks of semaglutide may include:

  • Severe or prolonged side effects (stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, bowel movement issues)
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Pancreatitis
  • Infection of injection sites
  • Not usually covered by insurance
  • Scarring of injection sites
  • Inadequate results

In general, the medical risks of semaglutide Olympia are low and it is considered a safe medication for most people who need a medical weight loss solution. Your Seattle Plastic Surgery can walk you through the possible side effects and risks during a consultation. They will also ensure you have an overall low risk of developing complications or major risks.

Beginning Your Semaglutide Weight Loss Journey 


At Seattle Plastic Surgery, we offer both in-person and virtual consultations. From Olympia, patients have the flexibility to drive one to two hours to our office, or they can consult from the comfort of their home. Regardless of the mode of communication used for the consultation, your Seattle weight loss provider will want to know about your medical history, medications, and weight history.

If your provider believes you are a good fit for the semaglutide weight loss program, they will demonstrate how to inject the medication. They can also administer the first dose of an in-person consultation. Following this, patients will receive the medication and all necessary supplies at home. 

Olympia Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide injections are placed under the skin and in the fatty tissue. The most common injection sites are the upper arm, thigh, and stomach. However, other areas of the body can be used in specific circumstances. Each week patients should rotate the injection site. At the very least, the patient needs to inject at least an inch away from the last injection site.

Patients will give themselves the injection on the same day each week. The time of day does not matter, but many patients find it easiest to inject around the same time as well. The medication will arrive each month at the patient’s shipping address. Additionally, patients will have a monthly check-in with their provider—either online or in person.

Diet & Exercise

At Seattle Plastic Surgery, our providers strongly recommend following a diet and exercise regimen. While not strictly necessary, it can improve and promote the best possible results. Unlike other diet and exercise programs, ours encourages a more gradual and subtle approach to changing your diet and exercise habits. Take it one step at a time and you will likely see your hard work pay off.

Examples of recommendations our providers may make could include:

  • Park further away in parking lots
  • Replace one floor on the elevator with the stairs
  • Find ways to add vegetables and fruits to your existing diet
  • Remove only one food at a time that you eat regularly and need to cut out/reduce
  • Do not focus on only cardio, strength training complements weight loss well
  • Learn to make more foods from scratch

Future Outlook

The future outlook for patients who follow a semaglutide weight loss plan is generally good. Most patients see significant weight loss. With adequate lifestyle changes, the patient can eventually reduce the dosage or cease the medication altogether and see long-term weight loss. However, this timeline will look different for all patients.
