Weight-Loss Injections

Conveniently located to serve London, Greater London, Birmingham, and Manchester.

What AreWeight-Loss Injections?

Weight-loss injections are medications that aid patients in effective weight loss. No anaesthesia, incisions, scalpels, or sutures are required, and no recovery period is needed. Weight-loss injections are often used in combination with other procedures and treatments to enhance weight-reduction results.

Our office offers Saxenda (Liraglutide) and Ozempic for injectable weight loss. These medications mimic the natural effects of hormones like GLP-1. The injections cause slower gastric emptying, prompting the body to experience a feeling of fullness sooner.

As a result, patients have a reduced appetite, helping them consume smaller amounts of food. After a regular schedule of injections paired with sustained maintenance of proper diet and exercise, patients can experience a reduction of 15% to 20% of their total weight in a year.

Ideal CandidatesforWeight-Loss Injections

Weight-loss injections are an excellent treatment option for patients who have struggled with weight loss using traditional methods like diet and exercise.

To qualify for weight-loss injections, patients must have a BMI of 30 or above. Exceptions include patients with a BMI of 27 to 29 who have a weight-related health condition such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure.

Patients who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant soon, or breastfeeding must postpone use of weight-loss injections. Patients who are suffering from gallstone disease may not be good candidates. Patients who have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 are not ideal candidates for this treatment option.

The Weight Loss Injections Consultation

The patient’s personalised consultation is an opportunity to express their weight-reduction goals to an expert. Mr. Vasilikostas will listen closely and then work with the patient to determine the best treatment option to meet their needs.

This process will include a discussion of past weight-loss attempts, along with the patient’s current diet and lifestyle. Mr. Vasilikostas will go over the patient’s medical history. This will involve questions about allergies, current medications and supplements, and pre-existing medical conditions. Mr. Vasilikostas will perform a physical examination and may order certain lab tests.

Next, Mr. Vasilikostas will talk to the patient about their weight-loss-medication options. He will tell them about the treatment process from start to finish, and then together, the patient and Mr. Vasilikostas will choose a weight-loss medication.

A personalised diet and exercise plan will be created for the patient; this plan must be followed as closely as possible for the treatment process to be effective. Patients are free to ask questions throughout the consultation process.

Ozempic is self-injected weekly, while Saxenda is self-injected daily. Typically, these subcutaneous injections are delivered in the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen. Dosage is increased gradually. Mr. Vasilikostas will instruct you regarding the self-injection process, which is quite simple and convenient.

Injection of weight-loss medication must be accompanied by diet and lifestyle changes to create effective results. These changes aid in keeping the weight off after the treatment is complete. There is always the potential for progressive weight regain after stopping the medication. During the treatment process, patients may experience minor side effects such as nausea, reflux, bloating, stomach pain, diarrhoea, and constipation. After a few days to a couple weeks, these issues tend to fade.
