What happens during medical weight loss?

During your first medical weight loss appointment at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body, Dr. Festa and his team weigh you and check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They review your medical history and complete a physical exam.

Dr. Festa might use blood tests, urine tests, or imaging procedures to diagnose medical conditions that require treatment during your weight loss journey. For example, if you have high thyroid issues, nutritional deficiencies, high cholesterol, or low testosterone, he can prescribe medications or hormone replacement therapy.

The Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body weight loss team helps you plan meals and menus based on your initial body weight, goal weight, and food preferences. They might recommend meal replacement shakes or other dietary supplements, and let you know when to schedule follow-up appointments.

 

When will I reach my goal weight?

The amount of time it takes to reach your goal weight depends on several factors, such as your initial body weight, how much weight you’d like to lose, and how well you adhere to your weight loss meal plan. Expect to lose about two to five pounds weekly, at least initially. Dr. Festa can adjust weight loss menus and medical treatments as needed during your journey.
