Weight Loss - Halley Medical Aesthetics

Weight Loss

"Many questions -- and myths -- surround the topic of weight loss. We all know that exercising is a good way to lose weight, but which exercises are most effective for our body and lifestyle? How much weight should we lose? What about the nutritional aspects of weight loss? What are the best types of foods for us and the right amounts to eat, and should we take medication to help us along? Which diets really work?

At Halley Medical Aesthetics, we are passionate about answering your questions and guiding you on the right path to weight loss and slimming. Our programmes are designed based on Dr. Terence Tan's philosophy that weight loss need not and should not be a painful and lonely journey.

A healthy and effective weight loss programme is best conducted under medical and dietary supervision. This is why our clinic also has a qualified nutritionist in-house to design a diet plan that suits your lifestyle and preferences, and oversee your progress as well. The result is a highly customised weight loss plan and personalised nutrition counselling.

All our slimming programmes can also be paired with fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting® and skin tightening programmes to contour and firm up the body. "

What to expect when seeing the doctor

Your consultation with the doctor will enable him to design a weight loss programme based on your key body statistics, preferences, and lifestyle. It has to be not only safe but also practical to be effective.

You will undergo a full-body check-up that includes a full-body examination, body fat analysis, body mass index (BMI) analysis, waist circumference measurement, and blood pressure measurement.

The doctor will work closely with the nutritionist to ensure that the programme works well and that you can stay on track. He may also prescribe food and drug administration authority-approved weight loss medications and nutritional supplements to aid you in your weight loss, and fat reduction therapies like CoolSculpting® or body firming treatments to further contour your physique.

What to expect post-treatment

For a good and accurate gauge of how successful you have been in losing weight, Dr. Terence Tan will conduct a full-body health check at the end of your programme. He will also highlight the areas you should watch out for as your continue your journey to healthier living.

Should you take weight management medication?

"Eating healthily and exercising regularly are the basics of an effective weight loss strategy. But weight loss is a mental exercise as much as a physical one, and we need all the help we can get to keep the weight down. Prescription weigh loss drugs can be used in tandem with dieting and exercise strategies but only under the watchful eye of a doctor.

A weight loss drug like Xenical, for instance, works by blocking your body from absorbing about a third of the fat you eat. Duromine, on the other hand, is an appetite supressent (i.e. curbs your appetite). When combined with a healthy diet, exercise, and behaviour modification, weight management drugs can be very effective."
