Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management includes a variety of techniques to help you reach and maintain a healthy, sustainable weight. At Chinn GYN, the team understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Instead, they focus on holistic, individualized treatment. 

This whole-body approach to weight management means the team takes a variety of physical, emotional, environmental, and lifestyle factors into account when creating your personalized treatment plan.

Why is weight management important?

Proper weight management isn’t purely aesthetic. While maintaining a healthy weight can help boost your self-esteem, it also provides many health benefits, such as:

  • Lowers blood pressure and triglycerides
  • Boosts energy levels and reduces fatigue
  • Relieves chronic joint pain
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Lowers the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes
  • Enhances mood

Weight management can even reduce your risk of certain types of cancer, including thyroid, colon, and ovarian cancer.

How do I know if I need weight management?

The team at Chinn GYN takes many factors into account when recommending weight management care, including your medical history. 

What does weight management include?

Chinn GYN offers several weight management treatments, including:

Nutrition counseling

The team can help design a comprehensive nutrition plan that aligns with your genetics, metabolism, lifestyle, and weight loss goals. Morghan Milagrosa specializes in assessment and treatment of food sensitivities and management of inflammation caused by dietary issues.

Disordered eating counseling

If you struggle with disordered eating or food addiction, the team provides individualized mental health care to help you achieve and maintain a healthy relationship with food.

Management of medical concerns

Many medical conditions can lead to excessive weight gain when left untreated. In order to find the root problem causing weight gain or retention (or excessive weight loss), the team at Chinn GYN will provide thorough, whole-health assessments. This allows us to find and treat any underlying conditions that may be contributing to your weight concern.

Fat reduction treatments

Stubborn pockets of fat after weight loss can be discouraging. If you’ve already lost weight and still have unwanted fat, Emsculpt® is a noninvasive treatment that combines different energies to strengthen muscles and reduce fat. Meanwhile, the Emerald device uses cold laser therapy to target unwanted fat.
