What This Means for Treatment

It’s for the reasons above that people seek out medical weight loss treatments, and why many believe that medical weight loss treatments may be the future of sustainable weight control. These treatments include:

  • Medications – Several medications exist that are proven to help lose weight. The weight loss medications should always be in the hands of a trained doctor, but they can be very helpful in controlling some of the causes of obesity.
  • Weight Loss Surgery – Some surgeries, such as bariatric surgery, may also be an important addition to diet and exercise. These surgeries provide a permanent way to control weight that the body cannot defend against, thus helping those with biological issues preventing significant weight loss from finding a way to gain excess weight.
  • Post Weight Loss Body Lifts and Body Contouring – There are some areas that your body stores fat that may not be easily addressed by diet and exercise or even bariatric surgery. It’s not clear why your body holds on to that fat so long. So body lifts, especially arm lifts, thigh lifts, and tummy tucks are all becoming more medically necessary for those trying to get rid of fat pockets in the body.

These are only some of the medical interventions that may be used in addition to diet and exercise in order to get ride of fat. While diet and exercise are still crucial, those that have had problems with obesity may want to consider surgical or medicinal interventions as a way to continue on their path towards a healthier lifestyle.
