Ozempic is the tradename for a semaglutide, a complex subject used to treat type II diabetes. Type II is where your body can produce insulin but does not. As opposed to type I diabetes which does not produce insulin and must be replaced with shots. Ozempic also affects a part of the brain to reduce appetite and reduces the liver’s release of glucose. Overall, it is not a magic bullet to weight loss but it is a significant improvement to facilitate that goal.
The average weight loss with this substance is about 5 pounds per month. As a footnote: diet and exercise alone could equal or surpass this benefit. Also, bariatric surgery is more successful in most people. Once the skin of an adult has been exposed to excessive weight gain over a long period say years permanent damage is done to the substances within the skin that allow it to shrink once the weight is lost. Collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, fibrin – but mostly the collagen responds positively once the weight is shrunk away.
Skin Removal Contouring Surgery
Prolonged obesity destroys to a great degree the ability of the skin to shrink and react to weight loss. Therefore, post massive weight loss body contouring surgically becomes the method of choice. And believe me, there is no better way to re-sculpt the body and create a tight body after weight loss than body contouring surgery.
These procedures include the breast, abdomen, arms, legs, and sometimes the back as well as perhaps the neck. These are very complex body contouring procedures and must be performed by experienced trained experts. Post-weight loss surgery is emotionally rewarding for the patient and the surgical team. It’s a big step to consider these procedures. But I assure you if your candidate and you meet those presurgical criteria and you are treated by experts at a qualified facility you should expect a very significant anatomic and emotional boost. Looking your best and feeling your best are partners in a better life.
