Weight Loss – Before and After Your Tummy Tuck

Body contouring procedures such as Tummy Tucks, Liposuction, and CoolSculpting are designed to improve the shape of the body – they should not be thought of as weight loss or maintenance solutions. Before you have a body contouring procedure, you should be at or near your ideal weight. Building a healthy relationship with food and exercise is essential to both your weight loss journey and your weight maintenance journey. Without these key pieces, even with surgery, it’ll be challenging to meet your ideal figure.

But how do you reach your ideal weight?

Losing weight is one of the most common struggles faced by Americans today. Finding a weight loss program that works for you can be challenging. At Belcara Health, we offer a variety of programs that will greatly increase your chances of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight and improve your overall, long-term health. At the end of the day, speaking with a professional and receiving the guidance necessary to work on both your physical and psychological relationship with food and exercise will lead you to ultimate success.

Nutrition Counseling with a Registered Dietitian

When you have a medical condition, you go to the doctor. When you go to school, you’re instructed by licensed teachers. When you want to lose weight or modify your diet, you should rely on the advice and expertise of a registered dietitian. Proper nutrition is essential to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Nutritious foods will boost your metabolism, build muscle mass, give you more energy, help you think more clearly and make you feel better in general. At Belcara Health, we believe that knowledge is empowering; when you learn how food contributes to your overall health, your chances of losing weight, and keeping it off, increase exponentially. Our Registered Dietitian will help you build a customized nutrition plan that meets your needs, goals, and lifestyle.

The BHFit program is based on proven weight loss protocols (developed in 1954 by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons) that combine a very low-calorie diet with the use of HCG allowing patients to lose weight rapidly, without hunger pains, weakness, or irritability. Using this program, most patients can expect to lose between one-half to one pound per day. Patients can select a 23-day program or 43-day program, which are both divided into four phases: Education, Preparation, Transformation, and Maintenance.
