Weight Loss Q & A

How does being overweight affect my health?

Carrying extra weight increases your risk of developing chronic conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Cardiovascular disease


Being overweight or obese also increases your chances of some types of cancers, such as breast, endometrial, and colon cancer.

Why should I consider a physician-supervised weight-loss program?

When you join a medical weight-loss program, you gain a team of professionals who care about your success and offer ongoing support and motivation.
Your weight-loss program begins with a physical exam and a thorough evaluation of your nutritional and hormonal health. The goal is to find and treat problems that affect your ability to lose weight and to identify conditions that should be monitored during weight loss to ensure your health.

At Woodlands Primary Healthcare we also use the lnBody® 570 machine to analyze your body composition. This advanced machine delivers information that guides your weight-loss plan, including your lean mass, body fat mass, and percentage of body fat.

What services might I receive during my weight-loss program?

We help you set weight-loss goals and develop a meal plan that’s healthy, fits your daily calorie guidelines, and works for your lifestyle. You may also receive one or more of these services:

  • HCG diet
  • Clean Start Weight Loss®
  • Prescription weight-loss medications
  • Behavioral evaluation and modification
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Nutrition counseling


After you reach your healthy weight, we help you develop a maintenance program to support long-term results.

What should I know about noninvasive fat burning?

Our team uses today’s newest technology to permanently eliminate fat. These devices are all noninvasive, safe, and effective:

BTL Vanquish ME™

The BTL Vanquish ME burns fat for all patients, no matter how much weight they want to lose. The device sends radiofrequency (RF) energy into fat cells, which heats them to the precise temperature needed to break them down. Your body naturally clears away the dead cells, so the fat is permanently eliminated.

BTL Exilis™

When you’re near your healthy weight but you still have persistent pockets of fat, the BTL Exilis melts away the fat with RF energy and simultaneously uses ultrasound to tighten your skin.


The EmSculpt strengthens and tones your muscles, while also eliminating localized fat along the way. The device uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM™) pulses to trigger muscle contractions. While you relax, the EmSculpt works your muscles more than you could do naturally.
If you’re ready to start a physician-supervised weight-loss plan, call Woodlands Primary Healthcare or schedule an appointment online.
