Weight Management Q & A

What is physician-assisted weight management?

Dr. Lee offers various services to help you achieve a slimmer appearance and better health. Depending on your specific weight loss goals, these services may include:

  • Nutrition therapy and dietary recommendations
  • Exercise guidance to tone muscles and burn fat
  • SculpSureⓇ laser body contouring to permanently eliminate fat cells

Dr. Lee can help you decide which weight management strategies will produce the best results for you.

What is the best diet for weight management?

While all diets promise results, the best diet for you is one you can maintain for the rest of your life. Dr. Lee will work with you to determine the best dietary choices to work with your needs and lifestyle.

In general, a healthy diet features plenty of natural, nutrient-rich foods, such as:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Whole grains
  • Lean meat
  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Fish
  • Beans
  • Legumes

A healthy diet is also one low in sugar, simple carbohydrates like white bread or pasta, and fried foods or those high in saturated fat.

What type of exercise is best for weight management?

Like dieting, the best exercise program is one you can maintain for a long time. In general, you should get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days a week; this might include brisk walking, jogging, or swimming. An activity is considered moderate if you can talk while exercising, but not sing.

Regular resistance training can also help you maintain higher muscle mass and lower fat mass while improving the strength of your bones and muscles. Resistance training can also help you avoid injury. Lifting weights three times per week for just 20 minutes can help you achieve a more toned appearance over time.

How does SculpSure help me manage my weight?

While SculpSure is not a weight loss strategy, it does permanently destroy stubborn fat cells. When you lose weight, your fat cells shrink, but they don’t go away. After SculpSure treatment, up to 25% of fat cells are destroyed.

SculpSure tones and shapes your body when you have trouble spots that don't respond to traditional diet and exercise. It can help you enjoy a slimmer appearance as you maintain your weight.
