If you are hungry you will not be successful in reaching your weight loss goals. Therefore appetite control is tackled head on with FDA approved prescription medications, for those warranting them. Combinations of medications as well as supplements are used to make you feel satisfied.
Weight Management Program
Nutraceuticals (which are high grade vitamins , antioxidants, minerals and metabolic supplements) are individualized to each patient and vary with phase of the program.
Studies have shown that those using meal replacements (of high quality) lose more weight than those that don’t. Carefully designed meal plans by the dietician will be tweaked to meet your taste and lifestyle.
The Medical Spa is one of the most comprehensive weight loss clinics in the southeastern United States. We develop customized weight loss programs tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Our goal is to help patients achieve their weight loss goals while gaining the knowledge to maintain a healthier weight and lifestyle. Whether you need to lose 10 lbs or 200 lbs, we have the tools and expertise to help you succeed.
All patients are evaluated with a baseline Body Composition Analysis measured by InBody. We measure percentage of muscle, fat, and water. This is measured periodically to assess the progress towards meeting your goals. We can help you meet your goal whether you need to lose weight or change your body composition by gaining muscle and losing fat.
A Metabolic Study is recommended but not required. We can measure you basal metabolic rate (BMR). This is a simple 10 minute test that measures oxygen consumption and tells us how many calories you burn at rest in 24 hours. Patients are sometime frustrated stating that they are dieting but simply can’t lose weight. We can scientifically measure how many calories you need to be consuming to meet your weight goals.
All patients have a medical evaluation performed by one of our Board-Certified Health Care Professionals. We have significant experience in weight loss medicine and will tailor a plan designed just for you.
Our office has an In-House Pharmacy with consulting Pharmacist. We dispense FDA approved medications on site to assist with your weight loss. Our medications include phentermine, diethylpropion, phendimetrazine, topiramate and metformin. We also have injectable options including HCG and Lipoplex. Medical grade vitamins and supplements are available when needed.
Education is the key to long-term success. Patients are provided education as well as written materials to take home and review in more detail. We have a Dietician on staff and individual or group sessions are available.

A closer look at how InBody devices work
8 Point Tactile Electrode System with Thumb Electrodes
When measuring impedance with electrodes, contact resistance invariably occurs.
Controlling contact resistance is essential in order to accurately measure impedance in the body.
InBody accounts for contact resistance by using a unique method of electrode placement.
Electric currents have differing penetration abilities depending on their frequency.
Some frequencies are better suited for measuring body water outside the cell, while others are capable of passing through cell membranes and measuring total body water.
InBody makes use of multiple currents at varying frequencies in order to provide most precise body water analysis results.
Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Modern BIA views the human body as five “cylinders”: the arms, the legs, and the trunk. Accurate and independent measurements of each cylinder are essential for providing analysis not just for each cylinder, but for the entire body. InBody’s advanced technology allows all InBody devices to directly measure all five cylinders.
No Empirical Estimations
Empirical data, such as data related to age and gender, are values that are achieved through observation. Estimations that use empirical data have been used to improve the accuracy in BIA devices that measure impedance using the Whole Body Impedance method. Although useful for measuring the typical and/or healthy body type, problems occur when measuring individuals that have atypical body types, such as high performance athletes or severely overweight individuals. InBody avoids this problem altogether by completely avoiding any use of empirical estimations.
Together all of these technologies allow InBody devices to bring you the easiest, quickest, and most precise BIA body composition analysis in the world.
