hCG Weight Loss (Reset Diet)

Island Plastic Surgery offers hCG Weight Loss to patients from Mineola, West Islip, Long Island and nearby areas.

What is hCG?

Human chorionic gonadotrophine, also known as hCG, is a natural substance that occurs in women during pregnancy. Its key job is to make sure that the mother does not feel hungry or feeble as her body provides nourishment for the child growing inside. Despite her low-calorie intake, hCG provides energy by “burning” a pregnant woman’s fat deposits, helping to keep her from feeling weak or hungry.

What is hCG Weight Loss?

At Island Plastic Surgery in Mineola and West Islip, NY, our doctor-assisted, weight-loss program involves hCG injections, along with a 500-calorie diet free of fat, sugar and starch. The use of hCG can provoke intensive and selective fat burning around the hips, thighs and abdomen. This is helpful for many of our Long Island-area patients, who often struggle the most with extra weight around the middle of their bodies. Our hCG weight loss can be an effective tool for people to lose up to 1 pound of fat per day. We are pleased to offer this program to men and women throughout our neighboring communities, including residents of New Rochelle, Yonkers and Hempstead, NY, and Greenwich, CT.

How Does hCG Weight Loss Work?

The program at Island Plastic Surgery will begin with painless, daily mini injections of hCG. We will teach you how to administer the injection to yourself. The duration of the treatment will depend on how much weight you would like to lose. Patients who need to lose 15 pounds or less require 23 daily injections. When a weight loss of more than 15 pounds is desired, treatment takes longer; however, you should never exceed 36 injections. A second course may begin after a rest of three to six weeks.

During the program, your daily, 500-calorie diet will consist of 100 grams of fish, chicken or veal and an abundance of vegetables. We will give you a shopping list and some recipes to help you maintain this vital, low-calorie goal. You will be required to report to our office one day per week for a weigh-in, pictures and a review of your food dairy. Daily regulation of your diet and your dosage of hCG is important.

If followed to the letter, the combination of hCG and the special diet typically results in weight reduction of up to 1 pound a day, without feelings of hunger. In fact, the program has been used in Europe for more than 40 years, yielding some stunning results. At Island Plastic Surgery, we have seen similar positive outcomes. Of the patients who undergo the hCG weight loss regimen with us in Mineola or West Islip, about 75 percent see significant success, losing an average of 4 to 7 pounds a week.

Am I a Good Candidate for hCG Weight Loss?

We have found that the most favorable results of hCG weight loss occur in our Mineola and West Islip patients who are seriously overweight (100 pounds or more). However, this regimen can be effective for anyone who wants to lose weight, whether it’s 15 pounds or 150 pounds. Our hCG program can be especially successful in making a difference where other diets have failed.

The most valuable aspect of our hCG weight-loss regimen at Island Plastic Surgery is the support system we provide for our patients. You can rest assured that you will not be doing this on your own. Our dedicated and caring staff members will be there every step of the way to answer your questions, keep you motivated and cheer you on toward your ultimate goal.

When you work with Island Plastic Surgery for your hCG weight loss, you will be treated as an individual, not just another patient. Our regimen has helped various men and women across the Long Island region, including Mineola, West Islip, New Rochelle, Yonkers and Hempstead, NY, as well as Greenwich, CT, and further afield. Please set up a consultation today and learn why our practice has earned a reputation for compassionate, personalized and meticulous care.
