Weight Loss Program At Chugay Cosmetic

At Chugay Cosmetic, we offer a complete program for weight loss. Whether you are looking to improve the results of your surgery or just trying to look your best without surgery, Chugay Cosmetic can help you reach your weight loss goals.

We will help you lose weight safely and efficiently. We will teach you how to eat right, and take care of yourselves as we age. We offer pharmacological assistance and surgical procedures, like the tongue patch, to help you get to your weight loss goal. Exercise is a factor that is extremely important in our weight loss program.

We have a personal trainer that is affiliated with our clinic that will work with you to develop your own personal training exercise program. In addition, we have a psychologist available to help you with behavior modification to address food addictions that may plague some patients.


Pharmacologic Assistance With Weight Loss

Weight loss drugs are all pharmacological agents that reduce or control weight. Oral phentermine Hydrochloride (HCL) is sold for weight loss. It is in the sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants (used for the short-term management of exogenous obesity.) When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and occasionally behavior therapy, phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and exercise. Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.

In addition the use of phentermine, Chugay Cosmetic has a full program of hormone replacement therapy that can help you reach your weight loss goals. As we all age, there are certain key hormones that have their levels diminished. By altering these hormone levels, we can help you not only feel more energetic but in some cases help you speed up your metabolism to help you lose weight.

Weight Loss Tongue Patch

In 2009, Dr. Chugay began discussing the Chugay Tongue Patch as an alternative to more drastic weight loss methods such as gastric bypass surgery or the lap band. This patch, when surgically applied to the tongue, produces a means to lose weight never before offered by other surgeons. Those methods typically used are extremely expensive with an average cost for lap band at $14-15,000 and $18-35,000 for gastric bypass compared to the Tongue Patch at only $2000. While patients may not be able to lose nearly as much weight as some of these other procedures, the risk profile is much less and similarly allows a person to change their maladaptive habits while on the tongue patch program.

During a reversible procedure that takes less than an hour, the patient is fitted with a custom patch for the tongue which makes chewing of solid foods very difficult and painful, limiting the patient to a liquid diet. Under the direct supervision of Dr. Chugay and his staff, the patient is put on an easy to follow liquid diet, fulfilling all of their nutritional needs while at the same time minimizing caloric intake and maximizing weight loss results. Click on the link below to see a copy of our initial paper published on the technique in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.

Recovery is rapid; and patients are typically able to return to work the following day. 150+ patients have received the surgery and have seen impressive weight loss results, with some losing as much as 20 pounds in the first month after surgery. Post operatively, patients may experience swelling of the tongue for 24-48 hours. Speech may be affected during this time but typically returns to baseline within 48 hours.
