Medical Weight Loss Q & A

New Image Aesthetics

Why can’t I lose weight?

We all go into new diets and workout routines thinking the pounds will melt away after a week, but for most of us, that simply isn’t the case. Not everybody responds to the same diet in the same way — and that’s OK.

But before you throw in the towel, here are some of the most common reasons you may be struggling to lose weight:

Late-night snacking

Munching on chips and popcorn in front of the TV before bed can be more damaging to your health than you think. Eating too close to bedtime raises your insulin, blood sugar, and body temperature, making it difficult for your body to burn fat.

Poor sleep

A bad night’s sleep can completely throw off your entire morning, but did you know that poor sleep also makes it hard to lose weight? When you’re very tired, it’s easier to make poor food choices.

Slow metabolism

There are plenty of reasons your metabolism might be slowing down, but the most common is your age. Your metabolism slows down as you get older, but one way you can counteract metabolism-related weight gain is to increase your muscle mass.

Thyroid problems

If you’re suddenly gaining weight for no reason, talk to your doctor about your thyroid. An underactive thyroid, also called hypothyroidism, causes a buildup of salt and water in your body, leading to sudden weight gain.

How does the medically supervised weight loss plan work?

Dr. DuMornay and the team at New Image Aesthetics can help you get back on track and lose weight the right way, if you are struggling to burn fat. The team will run diagnostic tests and take a number of factors into consideration before creating your individualized weight loss plan, including:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Thyroid function
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Medical history

With a medically-supervised weight loss plan, you can finally start losing weight effectively.

Is liposuction offered as a fat loss option?

Yes. Liposuction is a relatively noninvasive cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn fat—the kind that refuses to budge through diet and exercise alone.

For the best results, liposuction candidates should:

  • Not smoke
  • Be within 30% of their goal weight
  • Have youthful, elastic skin
  • Have a strong immune system
