Non-Surgical Weight Loss
Not everyone qualifies or desires surgical weight loss. Whether you have insurance and financial impediments, or you are simply concerned about the risks of surgical weight loss, we have you covered with non-surgical options.
WEIGHT LOSS MEDICATION
There are a number of weight loss drugs that have been approved by the FDA in recent years. These drugs have been rigorously tested to ensure their safety and efficacy.
At Weight Loss Specialists of North Texas, we offer both these newer medications as well as older drugs under the direct supervision of a physician.
Some of the medications we offer are Qsymia, Contrave, & Belviq. Older drugs include Orlistat and phentermine.
All weight loss drug regimens should be combined with a diet and exercise program for maximum results.
WEIGHT LOSS PROCEDURES
For individuals interested in reversible low risk procedures, the intra-gastric balloon is a reasonable option.
A balloon is placed in the stomach via endoscopy under light sedation - there is no general anesthesia. The balloon fills up the stomach causing fullness. As a result, the amount of food ingested prior to feeling full is diminished.
DIET AND EXERCISE
Our on staff dietitian will work with you on a one on one basis to develop a diet and exercise program that is unique to you and your circumstances.
