An innovative approach to weight loss

For patients seeking to jumpstart their weight loss journey through cutting-edge injections, Semaglutide offers the promise of a slimmer physique and enhanced energy. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, Semaglutide has been shown to help patients lose 5-10% of their excess weight.

As a double-board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hubbard has an unwavering commitment to patient safety and well-being, carefully curating individualized, success-oriented treatment plans.

Patients enjoy one-on-one attention, the utmost privacy, and concierge care at our facility in beautiful Virginia Beach. We are excited to offer Semaglutide injections to help patients enjoy a healthier lifestyle and a more positive self-image. Semaglutide diminishes appetite and helps patients to feel fuller faster, resulting in noticeable weight loss.

What is Semaglutide?

Today, nearly 70% of American adults struggle with obesity or being overweight. The causes are likely related to an increase in sedentary jobs, a lack of proper exercise, and an increase in fast food consumption. At Hubbard Plastic Surgery & Skin Enhancement, Dr. Thomas Hubbard and his team believe that every patient deserves to live life confidently, free from excess weight and its associated medical problems. While dieting and exercise alone can sometimes produce weight loss results, most patients can benefit from some extra assistance in the form of weight-loss injections.

Semaglutide has been shown to reduce food cravings, quell the appetite, and keep patients satiated longer so they can shed the pounds and regain their self-confidence and quality of life.

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. By mimicking the GLP-1 hormone in the body that regulates appetite and sends satiation messages to the brain after meals, Semaglutide helps patients consume smaller portions without experiencing stressful cravings.

Semaglutide controls the pancreas’ insulin release, balancing blood sugar levels and instigating enhanced fat burning. The food passes more slowly through the stomach as well, which further reduces hunger and limits caloric consumption.

Types of Semaglutide treatments

There are a few different types of Semaglutide injections with different strengths and dosages. Our team will conduct a thorough consultation process and medical review to determine the best treatment approach for your goals and needs.

  • Ozempic – Ozempic is usually prescribed for those with Type 2 diabetes but it has shown off-label success in promoting weight loss in patients who do not have diabetes. Blood sugar balancing and overall weight loss can help patients stave off other obesity-related medical issues.
  • Wegovy – Wegovy is formulated to address chronic weight management and is administered in higher doses. It is ideal for obese patients struggling with weight-related comorbidities other than diabetes.

Who is a good candidate for Semaglutide?

Because a detailed consultation is necessary to determine if weight-loss injections are a good fit for each patient, only a qualified medical professional can prescribe Semaglutide.

Semaglutide should not be prescribed for patients with certain cancers, endocrine tumors, or thyroid disorders. During your initial meeting be sure to disclose all the medications and supplements you currently take in order to prevent the risk of complications.


What will my treatment entail?

Semaglutide is injected under the skin once a week,with an initial dose and collaborative treatment plan to increase dosing. Injections are typically administered to the upper arm, stomach, or thigh. Rest assured, you will receive an easy-to-understand demonstration of how to self-inject Semaglutide at home.

Are there any side effects with Semaglutide?

Most patients tolerate Semaglutide quite well. However, there is a risk of certain side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. Rarer side effects include headaches, UTIs, upper respiratory tract infections, and others. Most symptoms tend to resolve as the body gets used to the injections over the course of about 30 days. We will continuously monitor your reactions to Semaglutide and adjust your dosage accordingly.
