Introduction to Semaglutide

With so many options out there for losing weight, it’s understandable that there can be some confusion or concern when deciding what’s best for you. Unfortunately, not every treatment will produce the same results with their “tricks” and “solutions” due to each patient’s body type and chemistry. If you have tried other methods with zero-to-little success, Subbio Plastic Surgery & MedSpa in Philadelphia offers a potentially successful option! Semaglutide treatments are becoming increasingly popular amongst our patients looking to lose some of that extra, stubborn weight. To learn more about this product and learn if it’s right for you, please keep reading below.


What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an increasingly popular treatment to help you control chronic weight management, increase your insulin production, and reduce your overall appetite. It is derived from a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) which is found in your digestive system and plays a huge role in controlling your appetite and assisting in digestion.

The treatment is performed once a week, which requires an injection of the product. When combined with a healthy diet and routine exercise, this treatment can help adult patients lose almost 15% of their body weight, and some adolescent patients lose almost 16%.

What’s the First Step?

During this initial appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your health history, current medical conditions, weight loss goals, and any concerns you may have. Our team will carefully evaluate your case to determine if Semaglutide is the right option for you.

During the consultation, your provider will explain the benefits and potential risks of Semaglutide, as well as provide detailed information about the treatment process. If you are deemed a suitable candidate, they will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

What to Expect from Semaglutide Treatments

If your provider determines that Semaglutide is the right option for you, they will explain how to administer the medication, which is done through self-injections. You will be taught the proper techniques and dosage amount to ensure that you feel confident and comfortable with the process.

The most important thing to remember about this treatment is that you will need to perform these injections routinely. It does not have to be performed in the same location, but you need to be consistent on the day and time. This will just help increase the effectiveness of your treatment. If you notice any negative side effects, please let us know so that your dosage can be adjusted accordingly.

Once you start taking Semaglutide, there is generally no need for downtime or restrictions on your daily activities, however, it’s essential to follow instructions on the proper use of Semaglutide and to monitor your response to the medication closely.

You will need to attend follow-up appointments so that we can evaluate your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
