Wegovy Seattle 

For those suffering from obesity and weight gain, weight loss treatments can be highly beneficial and encouraging. Although weight doesn’t negatively impact every person’s health, being severely overweight or obese can create underlying health conditions that can impact one’s quality of life. Factors like genetics, medical disorders, or difficulty in maintaining a healthy lifestyle can hinder a person’s ability to lose weight through traditional methods like diet and exercise.  Wegovy is a form of semaglutide which aids in weight loss and management for many Seattle patients. Seattle Plastic Surgery combines the weight loss benefits of Wegovy with nutrition and exercise plans to transform their health and lives.

Compound Semaglutide Dosing Plan

 

 Understanding Wegovy 

For those in the Seattle area looking to lose weight and create a healthy lifestyle, Wegovy can be the jumpstart to start your journey. While semaglutide drugs were initially used to benefit those with type 2 diabetes, Wegovy is one the newest and most innovative medications designed to promote healthy weight loss. Wegovy is a form of semaglutide, which is a GLP-1 medication that acts as the GLP-1 hormone our bodies produce in response to eating. It helps lower blood sugar levels and suppresses the hormone that informs you of hunger. 

Wegovy has three components that aid in weight loss and healthy body mass management. First, the GLP-1 receptor in the drug helps to regulate blood sugar. Second, it acts as an appetite suppressant which promotes weight loss for those who struggle with an overactive appetite. Third, it prevents the liver from overproducing sugar and creating fat deposits in the tissue. Essentially, it slows down the body’s food processing, allowing food to sit in the stomach, prolonging the feeling of fullness. 

Wegovy is given as an injection, but instead of an insulin-like device, the patient uses a device shaped more like an EpiPen. The standard treatment is one injection weekly in the abdomen, biceps, or thighs. For Seattle patients, Wegovy can also be taken in tablet form, which would be taken daily instead of injected weekly. Patients can decide which type of Wegovy treatment is best for them during the initial consultation. 

Benefits of Wegovy 

There are many benefits to the Seattle Wegovy weight loss program, aside from losing weight. For patients who struggle to maintain healthy habits or lose weight, Wegovy can be a groundbreaking solution. Benefits of Wegovy include: 

  • Dramatically reduces weight 
  • Prevent heart complications or disease 
  • Prevent the risks of certain cancers 
  • Strengthen mobility 
  • Easier to exercise and maintain activity  
  • Lowers high blood pressure 
  • Enhances restful sleep 
  • Balances blood sugar levels 
  • Avoid invasive weight loss surgeries like a gastric bypass 
  • Customizable plan and dosage 
  • Choice of injection or tablet 
  • Proven to be effective for weight loss 
  • Designed for long-term use 

Risks of Wengovy 

Every medication has certain risks and side effects associated with it, but Wegovy’s risks are generally rare, and the side effects are mild. Patients might experience gas, nausea, heartburn, or bowel movement shifts when taking Wegovy. These side effects typically disappear within the first few weeks and are manageable with certain supplements like vitamin B. Some rare risks of Wegovy include: 

  • Pancreatitis 
  • Severe drop in blood pressure 
  • Risk of developing thyroid cancer 

The risks that can come with Wegovy are rare; most patients feel that the benefit from the treatment outweighs any risks or mild side effects. At Seattle Plastic Surgery, the provider takes the time and effort necessary to ensure each patient can safely take the medication.

The Seattle Wegovy Weight Loss Program 

More people are seeking Wegovy to aid in weight loss as it gains more popularity in the media. Seattle Plastic Surgery wants to do more than prescribe weight loss medication for patients, so they created a weight loss program to aid patients every step of the way. The program includes personalized exercise routines and nutritional plans to help patients find the perfect balance to optimize their Wegovy results. 

Once the patient is qualified as a Wegovy candidate, they will choose between injection or tablet Wegovy and begin their weight loss journey. They will have check-ins with their provider every month after beginning the medication. These check-ins can be done either in-person or virtually, depending on each patient’s needs. During these check-ins, the provider will discuss the patient’s weight loss progress and make any needed adjustments to the dosage or program. He will also discuss any side effects the patient might have and make any necessary adjustments to alleviate those side effects. The provider will also provide a Vitamin B supplement for each patient, which can greatly reduce any nausea or digestive issues one might have during the first few weeks.

Wegovy Q&A

What Is The Recommended Dosage For Wegovy? 

For Seattle Wegovy patients, Seattle Plastic Surgery understands how to utilize the Wegovy dosage to produce the best results. The provider will start each patient on a low dose to avoid negative side effects and allow the body to adjust to the treatment. Each monthly check-in can adjust the dosage depending on the patient’s needs. The dosage can be increased to the full amount, which is 2.4mg, or it can be lowered depending on the patient’s progress and side effects. 

What Can I Expect From A Seattle Wegovy Consultation? 

Seattle Plastic Surgery assesses patients individually during a consultation. Patients can choose to have either an in-person or virtual consultation with their provider. During the consultation, the provider will review your medical history, family medical history, past and current medications, and past troubles with weight loss. Then he will take the patient’s weight either in-person or self-reported if the patient is virtual. These factors will help the provider determine if Wegovy is a safe and beneficial treatment for them, as Wegovy treatment is based on the patient’s makeup.

Is The Wegovy Injection Or Tablet More Effective? 

Both the injection and tablet form of Wegovy is effective for weight loss. The only differences between the two are the price and frequency of treatment. The injection is around $575 a month, including injections and supplies, and should be injected once a week. The tablet is $700 a month and should be taken daily. 

How Soon Can I Expect Results? 

No two patients are alike, and results vary on each patient’s individual body composition and metabolism. However, many patients begin to see results around the two to three-month mark of the program and see their goals met around the one-year mark. 

Is Wegovy Safe To Take Long Term? 

Wegovy is intended for long-term use, so it is safe and more effective for Seattle patients to use Wegovy for long periods of time. Because the dosage can be adjusted, once patients reach their goal weight, they can remain on Wegovy to maintain their ideal figure and health. However, for patients that wish to stop Wegovy, Seattle Plastic Surgery offers a program to help slowly reduce the dosage and monitor the patient’s weight to ensure an easy transition. While not necessary, this program is highly recommended for patients who wish to maintain their goal weight. 

Does Wegovy Cause Fatigue? 

Around 20% of Seattle Wegovy weight loss program patients experience fatigue for the first few weeks of the treatment. This is normal and will wear off after your body adjusts to the medication and slowed digestion. Any effects of fatigue will benefit from a healthy sleep schedule and plenty of rest. After the fatigue fades, Wegovy improves energy levels, allowing patients to become more active. 

Why Should I Choose A Local Medical Provider For Wegovy? 

Seattle Plastic Surgery knows that patients need more than a prescription to promote healthy weight loss. While Wegovy has many incredible benefits, the providers and staff don’t want to use a cookie-cutter approach to improve their patient’s lives and physical health. That’s why we’ve created the Seattle Wegovy weight loss program to help patients maximize their results through a well-balanced diet plan and regular workout program.

The diet plan is not a hardcore, restrictive diet but a meal plan of healthy, incredible meals patients can easily use during their daily routine. Workout programs shouldn’t be exhaustive or intimidating, so the providers created workouts that can be easily integrated into daily activities. Through monthly check-ins and personalized care, Seattle Plastic Surgery offers more than a weight loss prescription. They offer the chance to enhance your quality of life. Additionally, the monthly cost includes the medication, monthly in-person or virtual visits, and 24/7 on-call doctors.
