Tirzepatide For Weight Loss

Let us help you reach your weight loss goal with a weight loss program customized to your unique physiology, health, and desires. North Florida Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics offers tirzepatide, the active ingredient in the diabetes medication Mounjaro, approved by the FDA under the brand name Zepbound, to treat obesity. Tirzepatide is among a new class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists developed to treat type 2 diabetes. In addition to controlling blood sugar, the drugs also resulted in substantial weight loss. Tirzepatide is the first medication in its class and comes as a once-weekly injection.

How Does Tirzepatide Work For Weight Loss?

When paired with diet and exercise, tirzepatide can lower blood sugar levels and result in significant weight loss in people with and without diabetes. Tirzepatide weight loss injections decrease your appetite and prolong your sense of fullness, causing you to consume fewer calories.

Tirzepatide is a dual GLP-1/GIP receptor agonist, meaning it is a combination of two classes of medications: glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist and a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptor agonist. A tirzepatide injection lowers blood glucose levels while reducing inflammation and signaling your brain that you are full, helping you feel fuller for longer.

How Much Does Tirzepatide Cost For Weight Loss?

The treatment's cost depends on the tirzepatide dosage you are prescribed. At the start of treatment, patients will come in for an injection once a week, which can extend to once every four weeks. The progression of your dosage of tirzepatide for weight loss will depend on your treatment plan.

Tirzepatide Benefits

Each patient's experience is unique, yet most patients experienced at least 15% weight loss, with many losing more than 20% of their body weight. Tirzepatide weight loss results in reduced appetite and food cravings, increased feeling of fullness, and reduced waist size, blood sugar, inflammation, and weight. Patients receive painless under-the-skin injections activating GLP-a once each week and regular consultations with our medical provider.
