The WHO (World Health Organization) has classified obesity as a disease and it has been renamed as “diabesity” because obesity is a major factor that induces diabetes.
The world over, doctors are advising their patients to lose weight in order to reduce the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, brain stroke, cancer and sleep apnoea.
Most often patients go for treatment to Non Medical clinics run by people with no professional training in the field of weight management.Treatment by unqualified people can be fatal in some cases.
The right way to tackle obesity is to achieve weight loss through fat loss, and not through precious lean body mass (muscle & tissue) or water loss. The process should be gradual and sustainable. A bariatric physician is the right medical expert to treat obesity.
The weight that is lost by fad dieting or sustaining on Vegetables or Herbal Powders or the Super Food Supplements give initial dramatic weight loss due to the loss of carbohydrates and water but not fat. After losing 3 to 4 Kgs of weight there won’t be any reduction as there is hardly any water to be lost.Hence once you start eating the normal or near normal diet, all the weight you have lost is regained and end up with bonus weight due to reduced BMR due to verylow calorie dieting you have done so far.
The weight lost through non medical vibration treatments is due to the loss of precious lean body mass , which can result in osteoporosis or damage to the Heart Muscles.
Bariatric Medical Centers are run by a bariatric physician assisted by a plastic surgeon, an endocrinologist, nutritionists and a behaviour therapist. Here the emphasis is on “ Weight Loss Through Fat Loss”.It’s a comprehensive scientific approach to treat obesity.
Here medical experts follow advanced medical procedures that results in gradual, safe, satisfactory and maintainable weight loss, through fat loss.
In order to assess whether the weight lost is through fat loss or not, Clinic 2000 conducts Computerized body composition Analysis test, prior to the treatment and repeat it on completion to determine the exact fat loss. In one course of cello therm treatment, spread over 12 sessions, a person loses about 10 to 12 kilos of fat. In this treatment wherever the fat is more the reduction will be more leading to automatic figure correction. Due to this treatment’s collagen stimulating property, skin tightening takes places simultaneously. This prevents the need for any extra tummy tucks or body shaping treatments or figure improvement and skin tightening treatments as it happens in non medical / beauty treatments saving lot of money and time to the patients.
As it is weight loss through fat loss, patients with diabetes,high blood pressures, hypothyroidism, PCOS, heart ailments and people who have undergone bypass surgery can safely undergo this treatment.
