Ozempic/Mounjaro weight loss
The role of Ozempic in weight loss:
Ozempic, is originally developed for the management of type 2 diabetes but has shown promising effects on weight loss. This FDA-approved medication belongs to a class called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) and acts by regulating blood sugar levels and appetite control.
How does Ozempic work for weight loss?
Clinical trials have demonstrated that Ozempic can lead to significant weight loss in individuals with diabetes, attributed to suppressing appetite and helping in weight loss.
Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Ozempic which gives a feeling of satiety, and therefore a person feels satisfied or full, with less appetite.
However, it’s important to remember that Ozempic should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional for diabetes management, and weight loss should be considered as an additional benefit rather than the primary goal.
The role of Mounjaro in weight loss:
In recent years, another medication has emerged as a potential aid in weight loss—Mounjaro. This prescription drug shares similarities with Ozempic as both are GLP-1 RAs. Mounjaro is approved for the treatment of obesity and, when used in combination with lifestyle modifications, has demonstrated significant weight loss effects.
How does Mounjaro work for weight loss?
Clinical trials have shown that Mounjaro can be effective for weight loss in individuals having type 2 diabetes. In these trials, many participants experienced significant weight loss, with most adults losing at least 10% of their body weight after using Mounjaro for 72 weeks (18 months).
However, it’s important to consult with a recognised healthcare professional to determine its suitability for your individual needs and goals.
Body contouring: Sculpting your weight loss success
While medications like Ozempic and Mounjaro can contribute to weight loss, some individuals may desire additional assistance in achieving their dream body. This is where body contouring surgery comes into play.
Body contouring procedures, such as liposuctions, abdominoplasty or tummy tucks, and body lifts, are advanced procedures designed to remove excess fat and reshape specific areas of the body. These surgeries can enhance the results of weight loss efforts and provide a more sculpted, toned appearance.
Note: It’s essential to remember that body contouring surgeries are not meant to replace healthy lifestyle habits. They are most effective with regular exercise and a balanced diet. Consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr Rory is crucial to determine your candidacy for these procedures and discussing the potential risks and benefits.
