At Renew Aesthetics we answer a lot of frequently asked questions about Medical Weight Loss. A weight loss consultation and subscription with a medical professional can greatly improve your weight loss journey by providing structure, advice, and support to help you accomplish your goals! Let’s talk about some of the most popular questions we receive related to medically supervised weight loss.
How much does medical weight loss cost?
The cost of a medical weight loss subscription depends on a variety of aspects. After your free consultation with a medical professional, the factors that affect cost are the duration of the program, prescriptions needed, and amount of follow up appointments scheduled. Your initial appointment will include labs for blood work, and the duration of the program and prescriptions needed all depends on the individual.
There is no minimum month amount required for the monthly subscription, and it can be stopped at any point time. Some people will need 3-6 months, while others may need a longer amount of time to get the results they’re looking for.
Does insurance cover medical weight loss?
Insurance does not typically cover medical weight loss programs, but you can submit the request yourself to see if your insurance will cover it. You would ultimately be reimbursed if your insurance does cover it.
How fast will I lose weight?
How fast you lose weight varies greatly from person to person. Because a medically supervised weight loss subscription is NOT a crash diet, you may not see dramatic results immediately. (In fact, it is healthier that you don’t because you don’t want to deprive your body of essential nutrients in order to lose weight.) Since medical weight loss is made to be reasonable for the long term, your results may take a few weeks to show.
This is perfectly acceptable as long as you meet your goals in the long run. Your customized medical weight loss plan will be formulated to get you real results. The benefit is that you will be able to maintain your results because you will have been in a healthy routine for several weeks or months, so your results are sustainable!
