What Is Medical Weight Loss?

Losing weight is typically challenging for many people, despite sticking to a diet and exercise plan. In addition, there are many considerations that may inhibit your progress with shedding weight easily, like hormone imbalances and other medical complaints. At Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic, Dr. Francisco Cardona is board certified in internal medicine and works with San Antonio, TX individuals to create a unique weight loss program tailored to their goals. This will likely consist of nutrition and activity plans, peptide therapy, and post-evaluation follow-ups, based on your specific desires. Reach out to our office now to find out more information and to schedule your appointment.

It is no secret that the majority of weight loss attempts typically fail. In some cases, it is not because they the person does not want it bad enough, they may simply not be doing it the right way.

Most people believe that in order to lose weight, you simply have to eat less food or not eat carbs. However, for successful weight loss to occur, one requires a proper balance between the calories you eat, the distribution of the calories and ultimately, the activity you do.

Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Hormone Replacement, our primary goal is not simply for you to lose weight but rather keep the weight that you worked so hard to lose. Our Medical Weight-loss Program focuses on small, gradual modifications in your lifestyle, rather than giving you a restrictive diet plan, or a "Fad Diet" which we know will not be sustainable on the long term, that will lead to attaining that desired weight loss and most importantly keep it off while still being able to enjoy life and of course those occasional guilty pleasures that make life worthwhile.

How Does Medical Weight Loss Work?

Your weight loss plan will begin with an appointment at our San Antonio, TX facility, during which Dr. Cardona will give a comprehensive health exam. He will also go over the existing status of your health, history, and weight loss goals. After doing so, we can develop a customized weight loss program that may consist of lifestyle modifications, including nutrition guidance. We may also prescribe AOD-9604, which is a fat-burning peptide and anti-obesity drug. Our aim is to help you maintain your results so in future appointments, we will make any required adjustments to help keep you on track and set you up for success.

We also understand that some people may need a little extra help in order to get started on their weight loss journey.  In such cases, we offer prescription medications which may assist you in on your path to a healthy new you.  Ask us about our Anti-obesity drug AOD-9406 which has been clinically proven to help you lose fat without the need to starve yourself unlike HCG which has been used for years for assisted weight loss. We also offer Semiglutide, an FDA approved medication for weight-loss that has been proven effective when combined with a proper diet and exercise regimen.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Cardona and his amazing staff for any or all of a better healthier lifestyle and look for yourself. Alex and Jen and the rest of the staff are always wonderful and so pleasant to deal with every single time. I've been coming for months for my TRT treatments as well as hair restoration and have been so pleased with my experiences and definitely exceeded my expectations. Dr. Cardona shows so much compassion and genuinely cares about each one of his patients as well as his staff does. They are awesome!!!
