Slim Down with Semaglutide

We’re so excited to introduce you to our new weight loss injection, semaglutide. It suppresses your appetite, increases your energy levels, and helps you lose weight! It’s FDA-approved and safe to use. In this article, we look at how Troy slimmed down with semaglutide and lost 155 pounds.

What is semaglutide?

It’s part of an exciting new class of medications called GLP-1 agonists that work on both your brain and your gut.

  • In your brain, semaglutide helps dramatically reduce or even eliminate your cravings.
  • In your gut, semaglutide slows down motility, so the foods you eat stay with you longer. You will find you get full even after eating much less food.

You don’t have a special diet, but because you are so much less hungry, it’s essential to eat nutrient-dense foods while using semaglutide. With your sustained weight loss, you’ll find you are healthier and naturally more energized. This in turn makes exercise and an active lifestyle more appealing.

What are the results like?

We see excellent results, and you can expect the following:

  • Long-term weight loss
  • One weekly injection
  • Reduced appetite
  • Better glycemic control
  • Increased energy levels

Have the body your dreams.

Finally, it’s safe to take semaglutide for a lifetime. Like diabetics who must take insulin, semaglutide helps those who are prone to obesity keep their weight at a healthy place.

With our weight loss tools, you can have the body you’ve always dreamed of. What’s more, if you’d love to have plastic surgery but need to lose weight first, semaglutide can help you do just that. Along with reduced calorie intake and exercise, you can reach your weight loss goals easier than with diet and exercise alone.

Get your body summer-ready with semaglutide – come see us today! Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Amy Sprole and Dr. Joe Spaniol, can help you on your weight loss journey. And after weight loss, they can help you with your body contouring goals. Call 316-688-7500 today to get started.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our weight loss patient, Troy N., feels great after going from 380 pounds to 225 pounds with weight loss injections. Here’s his story.

Tell us about your journey to the semaglutide injections:

Troy: My wife was having a treatment at PSC and learned about these weight loss injections. We discussed it and decided to try it to lose some weight.

Tell us about the treatments:

Troy: I do the injections in my stomach, and they are very easy. The injections are ready to go with a small needle, and I don’t have to prime them. It’s not intrusive at all, and the injections are painless. I wait 10 seconds, and then I am on my way.

Do you have any side effects? 

Troy: I really didn’t experience any side effects. 

How much weight have you lost?

Troy: I have lost 155 pounds. I will probably stay on semaglutide so I can lose more weight. 

Do you feel different now?

Troy: I feel great, and I have so much more energy. I have always been the “clean plate” kid and got a gold star for eating well at every meal when I was a kid. With weight loss injections, I stop eating when I’m full. I no longer want to eat my whole plate. It’s been mentally hard to leave food, but now, when I’m done, I’m done! In addition, my sex life is greatly improved! I am very happy with my results and don’t want to go back to where I was. 

Do you have advice for people considering semaglutide?

Troy: Set your mind to your goal when losing weight. The best part about semaglutide is it helps you reach that goal by making you want to eat less.
