With options such as medication, nutrition support, education and classes, you can maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life. Our programs have helped motivate people like you lose 10 to 200 pounds – or more.
Long-term weight loss is not a diet with a beginning and an end. It’s a lifelong commitment that must go hand in hand with lifestyle changes. Our programs focus on eating in a healthy manner that promotes weight loss and long-term weight maintenance.
We also recommend consistent exercise to help you manage your weight and feel strong and healthy. Our team of weight-loss specialists will work with you to develop a nutrition and exercise program to help you safely meet your health goals.
We offer a variety of nutritional supplements that you may choose to incorporate into your eating plan. They provide good nutrition, high-quality protein and lower calories than processed convenience foods. You may use our nutritional supplements as meal replacements, snacks or both under the supervision of your weight-loss team.
Weight-loss medications are not miracle drugs, and they do not offer a simple cure. However, we use several medications as safe weight-loss tools that are part of a holistic treatment plan. Talk to your doctor about which medication, if any, could help you reach your weight-loss goal.
St. Vincent Healthcare now offers CoolSculpting® ̶ a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure designed to gently and effectively reduce stubborn fat on the belly and love handles without needles, incisions, anesthesia or recovery time. CoolSculpting® uses a precisely-controlled technology to target, cool and eliminate fat cells through a gradual and natural process without damaging surrounding tissue and skin. The fat cells in the targeted area are gradually eliminated through the body's normal metabolic processes, similar to how our bodies eliminate fat from food.
CoolSculpting® has been clinically shown to reduce fat in the treated area by nearly 20 percent with a single treatment. Individual results will vary. Most patients notice visible reductions in fat bulges in two to four months.
