Weight loss can be difficult for many, whether they are struggling with changing their lifestyle choices or they haven’t been able to accomplish weight loss despite following healthy habits. Sometimes, we all need a little help. Our Boston medical weight loss with Semaglutide or Tirzepatide may make the difference for you. Losing weight can improve the way you feel about how you look and can change the way you feel overall for better health and fewer long-term weight-related issues.
But weight loss is only part of the confidence journey for many people. We are here to support you in being Clareo Confident®. With weight loss, volume is sometimes lost in unwanted areas such as the face, breast, or buttocks. Weight loss can, at times, be associated with lax or hanging skin. The Clareo weight loss program is comprehensive with three parts:
As a non-surgical option to assist with weight loss and aesthetic improvement, Clareo Plastic Surgery offers Semaglutide and Tirzepatide in Boston, MA, with our expert team. Dr. Michael Tantillo, Dr. Christopher Lee, and our team of aesthetic medical providers can custom-tailor medical weight loss treatment to accomplish your specific goals and offer outstanding results. Our primary goals at Clareo are to ensure that patients receive high-quality care, receive professional treatment, and enjoy a comfortable, friendly environment.
This new medicine falls under a group called GLP-1 agonists, which imitates the body's own GLP-1 hormone. It's a revolutionary drug that can help treat certain health conditions. Semaglutide works to stimulate weight loss in a few different ways. By triggering glucose-dependent insulin secretion, it effectively regulates blood sugar levels and inhibits the release of sugar into the bloodstream, leading to more fat burning. In addition, this injected medication delays stomach emptying, creating an extended sense of fullness and curbing calorie intake. By using Semaglutide under the guidance of a qualified physician, patients have lost as much as 15 percent or more of their body weight.
Tirzepatide is the trade name of Zepbound, which is another medication that shows potential for weight loss. Zepbound is a substance that triggers certain hormones in our body that help to control our appetite and reduce the amount of food we eat. These hormones are secreted from the intestine and are called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). When Zepbound activates these hormones, we tend to feel less hungry and eat less food. While they are both medications for diabetes and weight management, Tirzepatide is a dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor agonist, while Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist. This means that Tirzepatide targets two different receptors, potentially offering additional benefits, while Semaglutide targets one receptor.
Using Semaglutide or Tirzepatide as part of a medical weight loss treatment plan can enhance your health, appearance, confidence, and overall sense of well-being. In contrast to surgical weight loss procedures, Semaglutide treatment provides a minimally invasive alternative that involves no downtime, no surgery, and no anesthesia risks. Our Semaglutide patients can meet their goals and see the many benefits linked to weight loss, such as:
For the best results, be sure to work closely with your doctor in formulating your treatment plan and follow all treatment instructions.
Since this is a non-surgical, customizable treatment, many people seeking medical weight loss are good candidates for Semaglutide. However, it's important to note that this treatment isn't suitable for every patient. It is not advised for those below 18 or above 75 years of age, individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those with a history of certain cancers, or those reliant on insulin. Patients with specific health conditions, including a history of pancreatitis, may not be good candidates. If you're looking to lose weight and want to know if medical weight loss is a good option for you, the Boston weight loss specialists at Clareo Plastic Surgery can help. They can answer any questions you may have during your first visit with them. It is imperative to provide your full medical history during a consultation when considering Semaglutide as a weight loss solution.
To start your medical weight loss treatment, we will begin with a consultation and full medical history to ensure that this is an optimal treatment method for you. Semaglutide is administered once a week via injections administered at home. Our medical team will provide you with detailed hands-on instructions for proper self-injection methods. Patients using Semaglutide are treated under the direction of one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, who will monitor your progress and make any dosage adjustments if necessary. We acknowledge that significant weight loss may result in changes such as volume loss in the face and buttocks or excess and hanging skin around the face, breasts, and abdomen. To address these potential concerns, we are proud to offer all our weight loss medication patients the following complimentary benefits:

Semaglutide, when used under the direction of a qualified medical provider, has been shown to have a good record of achieving tangible weight loss results. Achieving optimal weight loss results depends on carefully following all treatment instructions, as well as being willing to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
Risks from this treatment are typically minor and could include side effects like nausea or other gastrointestinal concerns.
The total weight loss potential for patients using this treatment varies depending on patient consistency and other factors, but many of our Boston, MA, Semaglutide patients have seen a 15 to 20 percent reduction in weight.
While Semaglutide can see excellent results with short-term or long-term use, weight gain may occur once the medication is stopped, so it's important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The cost of Semaglutide varies between patients, so it's important to contact a specialist and create a personalized treatment plan.
