Medical Weight Loss in Lehi, Utah

Medical Weight Loss helps support sustainable weight management through a personalized approach. The service begins with an integrative assessment of your overall health, addressing factors that may have hindered past weight loss efforts. Under the guidance of a certified physician and health coach, a tailored plan is developed incorporating diet, exercise, nutrition, and medications such as tirzepatide. Tirzepatide, a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, suppresses appetite by affecting brain regions that regulate hunger and slows stomach emptying to maintain satiety. This holistic strategy ensures that each aspect of your wellness is optimized, making it suitable for various areas, such as reducing body fat and enhancing overall health.

Medical Weight Loss in Lehi, UT, is ideal for those who have had difficulty managing their weight despite previous efforts. Candidates for this program undergo a comprehensive lab panel to identify any underlying issues and evaluate suitability for weight loss medications. It usually takes several weeks for clients to see results, with significant changes typically evident after several months. The longevity of these results is sustained through continuous support and adjustments from your health team. If you are ready to achieve your weight management goals, book an appointment to start a weight loss program with RUMA Aesthetics in Lehi, UT, and take the first step towards a healthier you.
