posted: Sep. 28, 2022.
Being overweight or obese greatly increases the risk of developing various health problems, including high blood pressure and heart disease. Losing weight helps reduce these risks, but many people find it difficult to lose weight on their own. Dr. Deirdre McMullen and Dr. Toni White, the board-certified physicians at Rocky Creek Family Medicine in Missouri City, TX, offer a medical weight loss program to help patients safely and successfully lose weight and improve their overall health.
What Is Medical Weight Loss?
Medical weight loss is a program to help patients safely lose weight without surgery under the supervision of a doctor who has specialized training and experience in the field of medical weight loss. A primary focus of the medical weight loss program at our Missouri City, TX, family medicine practice is to help patients break food addictions and adopt healthy habits that will help them lose weight quickly and safely, as well as maintain the weight loss permanently.
What Is Trusculpt ID?
One exciting component of our medical weight loss program is truSculpt iD. It is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment for sculpting the body that can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise routine to achieve maximum results.
TruSculpt iD is used to target stubborn fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer of the abdomen and flanks using radiofrequency. Treatment sessions only take about 15-30 minutes. The number of sessions needed depends on each patient’s personal weight loss and body sculpting goals.
Who Is a Candidate for Trusculpt ID?
TruSculpt iD can be used to treat any body type or shape. Treatment can be tailored to individual needs so most adults are suitable candidates for this exciting nonsurgical body sculpting technique.
How Quickly Are Results Seen?
Our medical weight loss program is tailored to the goals and needs of each patient, but is developed with the goal of achieving results quickly and safely. How soon visible results are achieved can vary from one individual to the next. Patients who undergo body sculpting treatment with truSculpt iD are able to see visible results after the first treatment. However, it can take up to 12 weeks to see maximum results.
