Have you ever asked yourself, “I’m eating healthy and working out, why am I not seeing results?” Or, “This particular weight loss plan worked for me five or ten years ago, but now the scale won’t move!” Or, “I’m eating and exercising the same way I always have, so why do I keep gaining weight?”

FAQs: Medical Weight Loss in Kansas City, MO at aNū Aesthetics and Optimal Wellness
What is the first step to aNū’s HCG Medical Weight Loss Program?
You will start by undergoing our personalized initial medical assessment, which includes a
blood panel, an extended medical consultation and a body composition analysis to determine your health status, specific weight loss needs and goals. If you have any health risks related to obesity, our medical providers address those issues and concerns, as well as your overall health and wellness.
What is InBody Body Composition Analysis?
To design the most effective weight loss program possible for your unique needs, we must capture a complete and comprehensive picture of your health, as well as intimately track your progress. We can do this with the InBody 270 body composition analyzer. Unlike standard BMI, this cutting-edge device records your skeletal muscle mass, weight and body fat percentage. Analyzing your body composition with such precise detail more accurately shows alterations, helping us to better determine which approaches you need to capitalize on greater health and wellness.
What’s an HCG injection?
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, the hormone women make when they are pregnant. We offer HCG injections as an option in our customized Medical Weight Loss Program because it can help reduce hunger while also preserving muscle mass during rapid weight loss. Preserving muscle is vital to long-term weight loss because it keeps your metabolism from slowing down. What’s more, HCG hormone allows the body to tap into fat reserves in the midsection and burn them, targeting fat areas in the abdomen, “love handles,” back, thighs, hips and buttocks.
How does a Turbo Shot help my weight loss?
Carefully formulated by Dr. Watkins, aNū’s Turbo Shot is designed to help aid your weight loss program by stimulating fat burning, boosting energy, lowering glucose and cholesterol levels, improving sleep and immune function, and more. Performed weekly as needed, aNū’s Turbo Shot includes lipotropic agents (choline, methionine, inositol) as well as chromium + carnitine with a highly absorbable form of vitamin B12 called methylcobalamin + vitamin B complex (B2, B3 and B5).
Why might I need a Peptide Injection?
The natural aging process can cause us to experience increased fat, decreased muscle mass and low energy, common symptoms which can result from a deficiency in adult growth hormone peptides. Here at aNū, we may prescribe peptide injections to enhance your weight loss program while mitigating the negative side effects of aging. Peptides, in combination with other weight loss tools, can help provide such benefits as boosting muscle mass, strength and energy, improving sleep quality and mood, and much more.
Why do you offer Infrared Sauna sessions for weight loss?
Did you know that a single 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn roughly 600 calories?
As part of your customized medical weight loss program, we proudly provide the most advanced sauna detoxification possible with High Tech Health infrared saunas. Besides weight loss, the many benefits of infrared sauna include detoxification, relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation and skin purification.
Will I need to exercise?
We encourage you to stay physically active throughout your weight loss program and as a part of your lifestyle. The benefits of regular exercise are immeasurable, as it helps you maintain your weight loss while also enhancing your total body health and vitality. Our team can help you devise a physical regimen that complements your lifestyle!
How will I know what to eat?
Our medical team will teach you everything you need to know about your individualized
nutrition plan, which is designed to help you lose weight safely and rapidly. Our weight loss experts will also explain the benefits of eating the right combinations of food and provide support and strategies to help you maintain your ideal weight.
