Weight Loss near New Jersey

Is Being A Few Pounds Overweight Really A Big Deal?

All of us have different body types and ideal weights that go along with it. Being overweight opens the door to various health issues. Even being slightly overweight can lead to numerous health problems, including:

  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heart disease
  • Type II diabetes
  • Some cancers
  • Arthritis and systemic inflammation
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Gallbladder disease

Carrying excess weight also puts stress on your organs and joints, increasing the risk of joint damage and chronic pain. Our team at our New York City, NY office is here to help you start your weight loss journey!

Why Is The Weight Loss Program At Park Avenue Endocrinology Unique?

The weight loss program at Park Avenue Endocrinology stands out from typical programs. Our medical weight loss plan involves comprehensive testing to create a personalized meal plan. Instead of prescribing appetite suppressants, our endocrinologists focus on understanding the underlying causes of obesity for each patient. We achieve this through:

Body Composition:

which measures the percentages of fat, protein, minerals, and body water in the patient’s body.

Biophotonic Reading:

which provides an SCS (Skin Carotenoid Score). Research suggests that this score correlates with factors that are related to a healthy lifestyle.

Lab Testing:

that measures hormone levels, vitamin levels, and other important data

Resting Metabolic Rate:

a measurement that identifies how many calories the body burns at rest.

Is Plastic Surgery An Option?

Procedures like liposuction and abdominoplasty can help reshape your body after significant weight loss, but they are not solutions for obesity.

Liposuction, which sculpts the body by removing fat cells, has limits on the amount of fat that can be taken out. These limits mean the procedure doesn’t lead to significant weight loss.

Moreover, people with a higher BMI, body mass index, have a much greater risk of complications during and after surgery and are usually not considered suitable candidates for cosmetic procedures.

Weight loss is not just about looks. It's about learning a new relationship with food so you can maintain health and wellness for life.


Is My Weight Mainly Due To Genetics?

Recent studies suggest that genetics can play a role in a person's tendency to gain weight, with influences ranging from 40 to 70%. Understanding family history can help you recognize your risks for obesity and related health issues.

However, research also indicates that genetic testing in adults isn't necessary because treatment approaches are the same whether someone is genetically predisposed to obesity or not.

Even if obesity is "in your genes," it doesn't have to define your future. While genetics can affect metabolism, appetite, and other factors, consistent treatment can help manage weight successfully. When diet and exercise aren’t enough, patients benefit from a medical weight management program that includes behavioral, physical, and nutritional strategies.


I’m Not Seeing Results As Quickly As I Wanted. Is The Program Working?

We all want to see immediate results when starting a weight loss program. The prevalence of diet fads only fuels this desire for quick fixes. However, medical weight loss is designed for long-term success. Patients may lose an average of 1 to 2 pounds a week. Sometimes it’s more, sometimes less, but this doesn’t mean the program isn’t working. It means your body is naturally adjusting to its new normal.

Understanding the challenges patients face, we have made motivation a key part of our weight management program.
