Introducing Semaglutide (Ozempic) at Aspira Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, a groundbreaking solution for weight management. Originally designed to assist individuals with diabetes, Semaglutide has garnered widespread attention for its effectiveness in aiding weight loss among non-diabetic individuals.


Semaglutide (Ozempic) is a cutting-edge medication utilized for weight management. Administered via injection, it acts as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, regulating blood sugar levels to curb appetite and induce feelings of fullness. This non-surgical approach offers effective weight loss with minimal side effects, providing individuals with a safe and efficient path to achieving their ideal body shape. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Venkata Erella, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, personalized treatment plans are crafted to meet each patient’s unique needs and goals.


Semaglutide (Ozempic) works by mimicking the effects of a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. By stimulating GLP-1 receptors, it reduces appetite and increases feelings of fullness, leading to decreased food intake and ultimately weight loss.

During a Semaglutide treatment session, you’ll first meet with Dr. Venkata Erella to discuss your weight management goals and medical history. Once ready, the targeted areas will be numbed with a topical anesthetic for your comfort. Then, the medication will be injected just beneath the skin into precise target areas. The entire procedure typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. After your Semaglutide treatment session, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and redness around the injection sites. These side effects are common and should subside within the first few days. Applying ice packs to the treated areas can help alleviate discomfort. Full results typically become visible after about 14 days, with follow-up injections recommended to maintain your progress.


Your journey with Semaglutide (Ozempic) begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. Erella. During this consultation, Dr. Erella will evaluate your medical history, discuss your weight loss goals, and create a tailored treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and objectives.


Have questions about Semaglutide treatment sessions? Here are some frequently asked questions:

How soon can I expect to see results after a Semaglutide treatment session?

Results from Semaglutide treatment for weight loss can vary, but generally, individuals might start noticing modest weight loss within the first few weeks. More significant and noticeable weight loss is often evident after 1 to 3 months of consistent use. Weight loss can continue over 3 to 6 months and beyond, with the rate potentially tapering off but still progressing. It’s crucial to combine Semaglutide with a healthy diet and regular physical activity for optimal results. Regular follow-ups with healthcare professionals are important to monitor progress and adjust the treatment as necessary.

To prepare for a Semaglutide treatment session, it’s recommended to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements such as aspirin and vitamin E for 7-10 days before the procedure. Dr. Erella will provide personalized guidance based on your medical history and needs. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to discuss them with Dr. Erella during your consultation.
