Are Your Fluctuating Hormones Impacting Your Weight Loss Goals?

Maintaining a healthy weight is a lifetime journey for most people- women specifically. With a physical makeup that is easily triggered to gain weight, women often find themselves battling the bulge especially as they age.

In fact, many women begin to see their weight fluctuate in their 30’s with a gradual weight gain of 10-15 pounds starting in their 40’s- commonly when they begin their perimenopausal phases.

So here’s the million dollar question: what can you do about it, right?

Thankfully, with new technology, it doesn’t take a million dollars- or invasive treatments- to help your body regulate to hit the long term weight goals you’ve set for yourself.


Why Hormones Impact Weight

In a nutshell, as women age their bodies begin producing less and less estrogen, progesterone and testosterone- three hormones that are in part responsible for your current figure. Together, these hormones affect your appetite, metabolism, water retention, muscle mass and the way your body stores fat. Naturally, when these are decreased, it will often result in saggier skin, more fat around the midsection, bloating and a loss of muscle.


How To Get Your Body Back

Admittedly, menopause- unless brought upon earlier for medical reasons- is a naturally-occuring stage of life for all women. However, now, there are incredible resources and treatments to help people of all shapes and sizes combat weight gain- especially for those going through hormone imbalances.


BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Using the non-invasive and pain free option of BioTe HRT, patients can replenish depleting hormones with those that have a closer match to the ones found in their bodies already with bioidentical hormones. Over time this will help women with the stubborn pockets of fat that seem to not respond to normal physical activity and diet modifications.

Additionally, BioTe HRT can help improve:

  • Memory Loss
  • Confusion
  • Mood Swings and Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low Sexual Desire
  • Fatigue



Another fantastic option is to permanently remove the fat cells from your body altogether. While this may sound like an in-depth, costly and painful process, in reality, innovative technology has helped patients across the world to experience fat loss in as little as 25 minute sessions.

With SculpSure, patients relax in a comfortable office setting as a machine hooked up to suction paddles targets the desired areas, sending cycles of warm and cooling waves to the fat cells just below the skin’s surface.

With absolutely zero incisions, this treatment is ideal for those that want a quick treatment without the pain or downtime associated with invasive surgeries, such as liposuction. Immediately following the treatment, the targeted fat cells will begin to break down before being naturally eliminated from the body permanently. Patients have seen results in as little as 6 weeks post-treatment, with full results after 12 weeks.
