What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide in Providence, RI  Providence

At Brower Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer Semaglutide as an innovative and effective tool for weight loss. Semaglutide is a groundbreaking medication that is FDA-approved for weight management in adults who are overweight or obese. It works by mimicking the effects of a naturally occurring hormone in the body called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1), which plays a major role in regulating appetite and food intake. By targeting key receptors in the brain, Semaglutide reduces hunger and increases feelings of fullness. Commonly used for treatment of diabetes, Semaglutide also promotes improved blood sugar control. When utilized with improvements in diet and exercise, Semaglutide leads to reliable and sustainable weight loss.

Weight Loss Injections with Semaglutide Frequently Asked Questions

Semaglutide is injected with a tiny needle under the skin. Our program includes frequent visits with us, which include training on proper injection technique. You will pick up the medication and all necessary supplies from our office each month. Each patient is started on the lowest dose of the medication, which is gradually increased over 4-6 months. This approach will maximize the medication’s effectiveness while minimizing its potential side effects.

Most patients begin to see results in the first few weeks after starting treatment. The greatest weight loss is typically seen in the first six months, but individual results vary, and some patients lose weight faster or more slowly. On average, patients can expect to lose 5 to 15 percent of their initial body weight.

Semaglutide is FDA-approved for weight loss in patients with a BMI over 27 who have not been successful in achieving weight loss with diet and exercise alone. The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, constipation, and abdominal cramping. Most patients’ side effects improve over time as their body gets used to the medication. Our office will help you manage any side effects you experience so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of the medication.

Each patient’s weight loss goals are different. Those who can utilize Semaglutide as a tool to implement long-term lifestyle changes in diet and exercise can generally come off the medication once they’ve reached and maintained their goal weight. Many patients report that the medication improves their relationship with food. They become accustomed to eating smaller portions, snacking less, and not eating when they’re bored. As long as patients can maintain these good habits long-term, they can successfully discontinue the medication without gaining weight back.

The initial consultation fee is $100, which is credited toward the cost of the medication. The monthly cost of the medication varies based on each patient’s needs. A complete pricing guide will be provided after your consultation.

We do not accept insurance for our Weight Loss program. Some patients can obtain prescriptions for Semaglutide from their primary care physician, but insurance coverage and medication availability vary tremendously. Most primary care physicians do not provide Semaglutide prescriptions as part of a comprehensive and holistic Weight Loss program aimed at long-term weight maintenance.
