How much weight can I expect to lose at Ageless Center?

Whatever your weight loss goals are, our programs are tailored to meet your particular, individual needs. Ageless is medically supervised weight loss, and your good health and safety are our top priority. During your initial consultation, our medical staff will perform a Body Composition Analysis (measuring your body’s capacity for weight loss and muscle gain). This information along with your medical history and personal weight loss goals will help determine how much weight you can safely lose while preserving lean muscle.

How long will it take to reach my goal weight?

We help our clients achieve results fast – while protecting your health and safety. Patients average weight loss ranges from 3-7 pounds per week.  Our medical staff will perform a Body Composition Analysis during your initial consultation. This information, your medical history, and personal weight loss goals and timeline will help determine your program as well as its duration.

Why should I choose Ageless over a hormonal diet, pill or pellet program?

We put our patients’ long-term health and safety above all else, and our medical professionals do not endorse weight loss methods that can be dangerous and/or deceptive. Don’t just take our word for it, see what other leading medical experts have to say. At Ageless, we prefer safe, effective weight loss that lasts!

What are the advantages of choosing Ageless over weight loss surgery?

Your good health and safety are our highest priorities. We help you lose weight quickly and safely – without invasive surgery or its potential complications.

As with any major surgery, gastric bypass, Lap Band, and other weight loss surgeries pose potential health risks, both in the short and long term.

Risks associated with the surgical procedure can include:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Blood clots
  • Lung or breathing problems
  • Leaks in your gastrointestinal system
  • Death (rare)

Longer term risks and complications of weight-loss surgery vary depending on the type of surgery. They can include:

  • Bowel obstruction
  • Dumping syndrome, causing diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
  • Gallstones
  • Hernias
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Malnutrition
  • Stomach perforation
  • Ulcers
  • Vomiting
  • Death (rarely)

Additionally, many people who undergo weight loss surgery experience digestion-related difficulties, including nutrient mal-absorption, dumping syndrome, and vomiting. A significant percentage of patients also experience failure, even with surgery. These patients either do not lose an adequate amount of weight or re-gain weight.
