Our Weight Loss Program Services


Our Tirzepatide shot is a revolutionary weight loss injection that helps suppress appetite and promote fat burning, leading to significant and sustainable weight loss results. This injectable medication combines innovative technology with personalized care to target key metabolic pathways in weight regulation. Tirzepatide helps control blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release and suppressing glucagon production, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels. By acting on receptors in the brain that regulate hunger and satiety, Tirzepatide helps reduce appetite and cravings, making it easier to adhere to a calorie-controlled diet. Through its effects on blood sugar regulation and appetite control, Tirzepatide can lead to significant weight loss over time.

Tirzepatide offers several advantages to enhance your well-being and weight loss journey:

  • Tirzepatide leads to significant and rapid weight loss, promoting a healthier body weight and reducing obesity-related health risks.
  • By regulating blood sugar levels, Tirzepatide helps control diabetes and reduces the need for insulin or other medications.
  • Tirzepatide reduces hunger and cravings, making sticking to a balanced diet easier.
  • Tirzepatide enhances metabolic parameters like insulin sensitivity and lipid levels, contributing to overall health.
  • Tirzepatide can boost your energy levels and fitness with weight loss and improved health.
  • Successful weight loss with Tirzepatide can boost self-esteem and confidence, enabling a more active lifestyle.
  • Tirzepatide is a non-invasive option that requires no surgery and minimal downtime.
  • Tirzepatide can be combined with other interventions like diet and exercise for comprehensive weight loss support.

These are just some of the reasons why Tirzepatide stands as one of the best treatments for helping patients achieve significant weight loss.

Additional Reading

Tirzepatide weight loss injections can help people lose weight and see noticeable results quickly. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, is essential to keep the weight off long-term. Avoiding unhealthy habits like eating too many calories or not moving enough is also important. Our medical team will provide detailed instructions on how to take care of yourself after treatment, and we'll schedule regular follow-up appointments to check on your progress and provide support. With commitment to a healthy lifestyle and follow-up care, you can expect to enjoy long-lasting results and an improved quality of life after Tirzepatide treatment.

Determining if Tirzepatide is the right choice for you involves considering various factors. If you struggle with obesity or difficulty losing weight through traditional methods, have challenges managing blood sugar levels, or experience persistent hunger and cravings, Tirzepatide may offer a solution. However, age, allergies to Tirzepatide components, and other underlying health conditions may affect eligibility. Our team at Après Plastic Surgery prioritizes patient safety and will assess your circumstances to determine if Tirzepatide suits you. Reach out to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward achieving your weight loss goals.

The Tirzepatide process at Après Plastic Surgery is designed to be comprehensive and personalized, ensuring that each patient receives the care and support they need to successfully achieve their weight loss goals. Upon consultation and eligibility assessment, patients will receive personalized treatment plans tailored to their needs and health goals. The treatment typically involves regular Tirzepatide injections, administered under our medical team's guidance. Throughout the process, patients will have follow-up appointments to monitor progress, make any necessary adjustments to the dosage and treatment plan, and provide ongoing support and advice. The Tirzepatide process is designed to be safe, effective, and empowering, helping patients to take control of their health and achieve meaningful weight loss outcomes.


In addition to Tirzepatide, we also offer Semaglutide, another effective medication for weight loss.

Semaglutide weight loss injections works by mimicking a natural hormone that increases feelings of fullness and satisfaction, leading to reduced calorie intake. While studies suggest Tirzepatide may produce slightly greater weight loss, Semaglutide can be a suitable alternative for some patients. During a consultation, we can discuss your medical history and weight loss goals to determine which medication would be most beneficial for you.

RF Microneedling

Say goodbye to sagging skin with our RF Microneedling treatment. This advanced technology stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin.

This minimally invasive procedure combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. RF Microneedling effectively addresses a variety of concerns:

  • Uneven Skin Texture and Enlarged Pores: The treatment refines the skin's surface, minimizing the appearance of pores and smoothing rough patches.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: By boosting collagen, RF Microneedling plumps the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving overall skin smoothness.
  • Skin Laxity: The increased collagen production leads to firmer, tighter skin with more youthful elasticity.
  • Scars and Stretch Marks: RF Microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks by promoting collagen regeneration in the affected areas.

While commonly used on the face, neck, and chest, RF Microneedling can be performed on almost any area of the body to address concerns about laxity, wrinkles, or scars. This makes it an important tool in your weight loss journey, helping your skin remain healthy, tight, and firm.

EmSculpt for Muscle Toning

EmSculpt is the ultimate solution for muscle toning and sculpting. Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, it induces powerful muscle contractions, leading to improved muscle tone and definition.

EmSculpt can be a powerful tool to add to your weight loss program, helping you achieve a more sculpted, toned physique. This FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. These contractions are much stronger than anything achievable through traditional exercise alone, leading to increased muscle growth and improved muscle tone.

EmSculpt doesn't just build muscle; it also helps eliminate fat cells. The intense muscle contractions triggered by HIFEM technology create a metabolic stress response in the targeted area. This response breaks down fat cells, leading to a reduction in circumference and visible sculpting. EmSculpt helps you achieve toned, defined muscles, giving your physique a more sculpted appearance.

PNOĒ for Metabolic Assessment

Patients have the option to receive personalized metabolic assessments using the PNOE Device. This can also include a personalized nutrition and exercise plan. Gain valuable insights into your metabolism with our PNOĒ metabolic assessment. This comprehensive analysis helps us tailor a personalized nutrition and exercise plan to optimize your weight loss journey. In the pursuit of optimal health and fitness, understanding your body's unique needs and capabilities is paramount. Enter PNOĒ Body Assessment, a revolutionary tool that goes beyond traditional fitness assessments to provide comprehensive insights into your respiratory and metabolic health.

At Après Plastic Surgery, we harness the power of PNOĒ Breath Analysis to optimize treatment plans for Tirzepatide or Semaglutide patients. This cutting-edge technology measures various parameters, including oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide production, and respiratory exchange ratio, to assess metabolic efficiency and energy expenditure. By analyzing breath samples, PNOĒ helps our medical team understand each patient's unique metabolic profile, allowing personalized treatment recommendations and adjustments.

Additionally, PNOĒ Breath Analysis can track progress throughout the medical weight loss treatment process, ensuring optimal results and outcomes. This non-invasive and convenient technology enhances the precision and effectiveness of the treatment, ultimately supporting patients in achieving their weight loss goals with confidence.

InBody Scan for Muscle Mass and Body Fat

Track your progress accurately with our InBody scan. This state-of-the-art body composition analysis measures muscle mass, body fat percentage, and other key metrics, allowing us to monitor your transformation effectively.

Leveraging advanced technologies in the pursuit of optimal health is essential. In-body scanners have emerged as revolutionary tools that unlock profound insights into our physical well-being. These scanners use bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to delve deep into body composition, going beyond conventional weight measurement methods. By precisely quantifying parameters such as body fat percentage, muscle mass, and hydration levels, individuals can customize their fitness routines with unprecedented precision. This holistic approach not only aids weight management but also enhances athletic performance and facilitates progress monitoring during weight loss efforts.

Body scanners can provide valuable insights into metabolic rate, which is crucial for understanding calorie needs and making informed dietary choices. These devices can reveal hydration levels, which are vital for supporting optimal bodily functions. Armed with this comprehensive data, individuals can optimize their lifestyles and make informed decisions when embarking on their health journeys. From adjusting exercise routines to refining nutritional strategies, in-body scanners give people the power to take control of their overall health and well-being. As these technologies continue to evolve, their potential to revolutionize health outcomes worldwide continues to expand, promising a brighter future for wellness enthusiasts everywhere.

Sculptra and Filler for Volume Loss

Whether you're dealing with facial volume loss or want to enhance specific features, our skilled providers can help you achieve natural-looking results.
