Medical Weight Loss

Obesity is a medical condition that not only restricts everyday tasks but can also lead to a number of serious health problems, such as Type-2 diabetes, cardiac issues, and various other comorbid conditions. The level of obesity of a person is measured by the BMI or Body Mass Index. A person with a BMI of 30 or above is considered obese. As the condition leads to serious health issues, it is important to seek professional help and follow a comprehensive medical weight loss program to avoid potential health issues. Medical therapies like Semaglutide injection for weight loss, Wegovy and Ozempic tablets for weight loss, and Mounjaro injection for weight loss are approved for people with a BMI over 27 if they have health problems, or a BMI over 30. We, at DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery, create a customized medical weight loss program to help you lose weight and maintain an ideal weight.

Weight Loss Medications

At DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery, we are committed to providing our patients with the most effective and innovative weight loss solutions. One such solution is Semaglutide, a groundbreaking treatment that has shown significant results in promoting weight loss. Sold under the brand names Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus, Semaglutide was initially developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Its impressive effects on weight management, however, have made it a popular choice for those seeking long-term weight loss solutions. As leaders in the field, we are proud to offer this cutting-edge treatment to our patients.

How it Works

Semaglutide, whether in the form of Ozempic injections (for diabetes) or Wegovy injections (for weight loss), works by mimicking the function of a hormone in your body called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone is naturally released after you eat and works to regulate your blood sugar levels and slow down digestion. By replicating the effects of this hormone, Semaglutide helps to reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness, leading to a decrease in calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. It’s a powerful tool in our arsenal for combating obesity and helping our patients achieve their weight loss goals.

Who is Eligible

Semaglutide is suitable for adults who are overweight or obese and have at least one weight-related medical problem, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol. It’s also suitable for those who have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. However, as with any medication, it’s important to discuss your medical history and any current medications with our team to ensure that Semaglutide, whether it’s Ozempic, Wegovy, or Mounjaro for weight loss, is a safe and effective option for you.


While Semaglutide, including Ozempic and Wegovy for weight loss, is generally well-tolerated, it can have side effects. The most common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain. These side effects are usually mild and tend to improve over time as your body adjusts to the medication. However, if you experience any severe or persistent side effects, it’s important to contact our team immediately. At DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery, we are dedicated to ensuring your weight loss journey is safe, effective, and tailored to your individual needs.

Other Weight Loss Drugs

At DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery, we offer a range of weight loss medications to support your weight loss journey. Depending on your goals, these may include:

  • Adipex: Also known as Phentermine, Adipex is a prescription medication that suppresses appetite, helping you to consume fewer calories.
  • Orlistat: This weight loss supplement works by inhibiting the breakdown of fat in the gut, leading to fewer calories absorbed from fat.
  • Phentermine/Topiramate: A combination of two drugs, Phentermine and Topiramate, this supplement suppresses appetite and makes you feel full faster. This is commercially known as Qysmia.
  • Naltrexone/Bupropion: Sold under the brand name Contrave, this combination of two drugs helps control cravings and hunger pangs.
  • Saxenda: Also known as Liraglutide, Saxenda is a prescription medication that helps control blood sugar levels and makes you feel full sooner, so you eat less.

Weight Loss Supplements

Weight loss supplements are a popular tool in the battle against obesity. Unlike diet and exercise alone, these supplements contain important vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients your body needs to function optimally while you lose weight. They work in various ways, such as reducing appetite, increasing fat burning, and reducing absorption of fat.

These supplements can be a valuable part of a comprehensive weight loss program when used under the supervision of a healthcare professional. It’s important to remember that while weight loss supplements can help, they are most effective when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Effective Weight Loss Exercise Plans

Effective weight loss is achieved by regulating your diet and performing weight-loss exercises regularly. You can achieve your ideal weight only when you burn more calories than you intake in a day. Therefore, it is essential to create and follow a strict weight loss plan. A few exercises you need to include in your daily routine are: 

  • Squats 
  • Lunges 
  • Kettlebell Swings
