Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a doctor-supervised plan that combines evidence-based interventions, nutritional counseling, and supportive medications to help you lose weight. This approach can help guide you toward your weight loss goals.

With Dr. Ayewah’s professional expertise and support, medical weight loss provides a structured and personalized pathway to managing your weight effectively.

Who should consider medical weight loss?

Anybody struggling to lose weight through diet and exercise can benefit from medical weight loss. Dr. Ayewah may recommend a personalized weight loss regimen if you:

  • Have difficulty achieving weight loss goals on your own
  • Have underlying medical conditions affecting weight (thyroid disease, diabetes, etc.)
  • Need guidance for safe and effective weight loss
  • Seek a structured, supervised approach

Dr. Ayewah reviews your medical history, discusses your diet and lifestyle, and orders blood work to assess any underlying factors contributing to weight gain. This comprehensive approach allows her to create a customized medical weight loss plan that addresses your individual needs and improves your chances of success.

Are there medications to aid in weight loss?

Dr. Ayewah offers two types of medications to support healthy weight loss:


Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that mimics the hormone your body produces to regulate hunger. Ozempic® is the most popular brand name for semaglutide. When administered by a board-certified physician like Dr. Ayewah, semaglutide can control cravings and help you feel fuller for longer.


Under the brand name Mounjaro®, this GLP-1 agonist also helps improve satiety and reduce food cravings.

After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Ayewah can help determine the best injectable weight loss medication for your needs and goals.

What does medical weight loss include?

Dr. Ayewah offers personalized weight loss plans that may include the following:

  • 10 weeks of semaglutide or tirzepatide shots
  • A one-hour nutrition counseling session
  • One 40-minute infrared (IR) sauna blanket session
  • One weight loss intravenous (IV) cocktail

This complete package can help set you up for success on your weight loss journey for long-lasting results. 

How can I maintain a healthy weight after medical weight loss?

Dr. Ayewah understands that your journey doesn’t end once your treatment plan is complete. With nutrition counseling and weight management education, she can help you develop personalized strategies to maintain a healthy weight and achieve long-term success.
