Yes! I’m Ready to Start My Weight-Loss Journey

The desire to lose weight is a dream that a lot of Americans share. Many of us have experienced the longing to fit into the latest fashion trend or develop a physique that allows us to participate in activities we enjoy. Weight loss can also decrease your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other life-threatening health issues.

But why is losing weight so difficult to do and maintain? How can you accomplish your goal and then keep the numbers on the scale in line with your dreams?

Dr. Mustafa Ahmed is a medical weight-loss expert and board-certified bariatric surgeon who leads our team at Southern Nevada Bariatrics in Las Vegas. This talented specialist has spent a significant portion of his medical career developing effective treatment solutions to America’s obesity dilemma.

Learn what makes Dr. Ahmed’s medically supervised weight-loss journey a long-term success.

Why fad diets don’t work

Most Americans have difficulty sticking with the severe restrictions included in fad diets -- for example, nothing but grapefruit morning, noon, and evening. Even if you do manage to stick with the dietary limitations, fad diets do little to prepare you for maintaining your weight loss once you return to the more balanced diet that good health requires.

A medical weight-loss program like the one Dr. Ahmed has developed can help you overcome these challenges.

What’s included in a physician-supervised weight-loss program?

At Southern Nevada Bariatrics, we take a comprehensive approach to sustained weight loss, which includes:

Starting with your initial consultation, our team at Southern Nevada Bariatrics focuses on your physical health as well as helping you achieve your dream of reaching and maintaining your desired weight. 

Our intent is to help you make this a new way of approaching life rather than a quick weight-loss plan that provides only temporary results.

What about weight-loss surgery?

For many patients, bariatric surgery is highly effective, but keep in mind that it’s not a magic wand for those desiring to reach their goal weight. Even with successful surgery, you must take steps to incorporate the principles of a healthy diet into your daily routine and increase your physical activity. 

Whether you choose surgery or not, our program offers support throughout your weight-loss journey.

Take your first step toward reaching your weight-loss goal by scheduling a visit with us at Southern Nevada Bariatrics today. We’re here to help you succeed!
