Non-surgical Weight Loss Q & A

What is non-surgical weight loss?

Non-surgical weight loss is a safe and effective method of reaching your ideal weight. Bariatric surgery also has its place for people who are dangerously obese, but losing weight without having to resort to surgery is a much better option.

Under Dr. Crespin's care, you can shed excess pounds using an individually designed diet and fitness plan, along with other interventions where necessary, including prescription medication to suppress your appetite.

Why should I consider non-surgical weight loss?

Anyone whose weight is well above where it should be should consider non-surgical weight loss as being overweight or obese is a factor in the development of many serious health conditions, such as:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Some types of cancer
  • Gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea

Non-surgical weight loss with Dr. Crespin helps you avoid potentially life-threatening conditions like these by giving you expert advice and the support you need to succeed.

How does non-surgical weight loss help me lose weight?

There are several ways in which Dr. Crespin's non-surgical weight loss program can help you lose weight:

Keeping you healthy

When you start a weight loss program, it's important that you eat well and exercise correctly, so you avoid injuries and don't get sick.

Dr. Crespin regularly checks your vital signs, including heart rate, lung function, and blood pressure, to make sure your weight loss doesn’t have any negative effects. He can also test your blood to look for any nutrient deficiencies and check your cholesterol levels and blood glucose.

Weight loss medication

Certain prescription medications can help some people to lose weight. Appetite suppressants, for instance, help you change your eating habits as you only feel like having small portions. This type of medication is only available from a doctor.

Long-lasting results

Fad diets and weight loss products can sometimes have positive results initially but are generally unsustainable. People often find that after losing weight, they regain not just the weight they lost, but also even more weight.

With Dr. Crespin's non-surgical weight loss plans, you learn how to make long-term changes in your life that mean you can stay at a healthy weight and avoid yo-yo dieting. He can also help you improve your health in other ways – for example, quitting smoking or reducing your alcohol intake.

If you want to lose weight and keep it off for good, non-surgical weight loss is the healthiest, most rewarding way to achieve your goals. Call Jeffrey Crespin, MD, to find out more or book an appointment online today.
