Medical Weight Loss
The most common treatment zones include:
- Double chin
- Bra bulges and back fat
- Arms (also known as “bat wings”)
- Love handles
- Banana roll (the fold underneath the buttocks)
- Convenience: Body contouring procedures are non-surgical and minimally to non-invasive. There is no downtime and you can resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
- Risks and side-effects: If any, these tend to be very mild and include redness, swelling, sensitivity, tingling, discomfort and bruising.
- Cost: As opposed to having surgery, the cost of non-invasive, body treatments is significantly less.
As with any treatment, maintenance is essential to keep your results.
All body contouring programmes should include a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, proper hydration, regular exercise, and include maintenance treatments. This will help you to prolong, maximize and maintain long-term results.
The OPTIFAST program utilizes a meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared everyday meals, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support.
The programme has shown to significantly reduce body weight by 1 kg – 2.5 kg per week and consists of three scientifically formulated shakes, nutritional bars, soups and desserts taken daily as a meal-replacement, with low-carb vegetables and salad as desired.
The OPTIFAST programme is structured into four levels: three levels for active weight loss, and one level for weight maintenance.
Any three OPTIFAST products per day replace all meals plus two cups of low starch vegetables with a teaspoon of vegetable oil and sufficient water intake.
Food Reintroduction Phase:
- Any two OPTIFAST products per day with one calorie controlled meal, low starch vegetables, one serving fruit and dairy and sufficient water intake.
- One OPTIFAST product per day with two calorie controlled meals, low starch vegetables, two serves fruit and one serve dairy and sufficient water intake.
Finally in this phase the OPTIFAST products are eliminated and three low-calorie meals are reintroduced to the diet.
The OPTIFAST VLCD programme is designed to totally replace your normal food intake in the dietary management of obesity. The OPTIFAST VLCD products contain carbohydrates, fatty acids and protein, which help preserve lean body mass (muscle) while you lose your fat stores. They also contain vitamins and minerals to ensure that you are receiving all the nutrients you require.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone present at high levels in early pregnancy. It stimulates the production of essential pregnancy hormones and has also been used to treat infertility issues in men and women.
The Medi-Lean Programme is based on a low-GI eating plan, together with the patient-specific supplementation as well as a series of daily HCG injections for a minimum of 4 weeks to a maximum of 6 weeks. Your body tends to develop a resistance against the HCG injections after 6 weeks.
A washout period of 2-6 weeks is necessary to clear out all HCG from your system, after which another course can be administered.
The majority of woman and men can use HCG for weight loss.
Programme excludes women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The programme has shown to significantly reduce body fat mass by 6 kg – 10 kg per cycle.
Your diet, injections and supplements will be different during each phase of the Medi-Lean Weight Loss Programme.
