Semaglutide Weight Loss

with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY

Weight loss can seem impossible, especially after trying multiple diets that don’t work or don’t last. With pressure to always stay slim, celebrities like the Kardashians and the Real Housewives have admitted to using semaglutide or similar medications. With the additional FDA approval of semaglutide for weight loss, the popularity of its use has grown tremendously. Dr. Scott Blyer at Cameo Surgery Center provides the best semaglutide weight loss in Long Island and NYC.

Overview: Medically Supervised Weight Loss

Weight loss can have many medical and aesthetic benefits which makes a cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Blyer and his team at Cameo Surgery Center are uniquely qualified to provide medically supervised weight loss. They specialize in the weight loss methods used by celebrities and influencers and make them available to their patients.

Doctors traditionally used semaglutide to treat diabetes. During this time, there have been multiple extensive clinical trials showing its effectiveness as a weight loss drug. The FDA approved semaglutide medication, Wegovy, to aid in chronic weight management. 

Semaglutide is part of a class of medications called GLP-1 agonists. These medications work by mimicking the effects of a naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. By activating GLP-1 receptors in the body, semaglutide helps reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, leading to decreased calorie intake and ultimately, weight loss.

But what sets Ozempic apart from other weight loss medications is its effectiveness and safety. Studies have shown that Ozempic is more effective in promoting weight loss than other medications in its class, with patients losing an average of 12-14 pounds over a 6-month period. And unlike some other weight loss medications, Ozempic has a low risk of serious side effects, making it a safe option for many people.

Semaglutide is not “cheating.” It still requires dedication to improving lifestyle. Semaglutide is a tool for losing weight, but it is ultimately up to the patient to maintain it and do it.


Benefits Of Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide offers patients many possible benefits. Some of the benefits may include:

  • Significant weight loss
  • Improve metabolic health and metabolism
  • Reduce the risk of type II diabetes and heart disease
  • Can help patients work towards a healthier lifestyle without setbacks
  • Encourage patients to stay motivated
  • Well tolerated by most patients
  • Low risk
  • Easy to inject
  • Comes in a device that hides the needle and is button activated
  • Can take the medication long term
  • Helps patients with medical conditions that make it difficult to lose weight
  • Overseen by medical professionals with years of experience in helping patients lose weight

The exact benefits can vary from patient to patient depending on the patient’s existing health and anatomy. Regardless, semaglutide is a tool for DrBFixin to help his patients lose weight and gain confidence.

Side Effects

Semaglutide—like all medications—can come with side effects. In most cases, semaglutide side effects are mild and resolve within a few weeks. Though, it is important for patients to work closely with a medical provider to prevent and address side effects if necessary. Some of the possible side effects may include:

  • Nausea
  • Gas
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Bloating
  • Diaherra
  • Constipation
  • Low blood sugar

Out of the risks, low blood sugar is the one patients should monitor closely. If it gets too low, this can become a medical emergency. Most patients will not experience this, but if a patient has a history of low blood sugar, they likely are not a candidate for semaglutide injections. However, this side effect is rare. Gastrointestinal upset and fatigue are among the more common side effects.

The Weight Loss Journey At Cameo Surgery Center


Not everyone is a candidate for semaglutide. The Cameo Surgery Center team meets patients for an initial consultation to review their medical history, lifestyle, and other factors. Ultimately, the goal of the consultation is to help patients feel better, look better, and become a healthier version of themselves. The consultation appointment does not take long and then patients can start the protocol as soon as they receive their medication. Their provider will provide instructions on when, where, and how to administer the injections. From there, they will give individualized instructions based on the specific patient.


Patients on semaglutide should undergo occasional monitoring to make sure they are responding well to the medication and seeing the results they want. While this is vital at the beginning, patients should continue to see their medical provider to review their weight loss, dosage, and side effects.

Semaglutide appointments are available virtually and in person. The Cameo Surgery Center team can accommodate local and faraway New York based residents with semaglutide treatment.


Semaglutide is a powerful medication. However, patients can turn it up a notch by also working to improve their lifestyle through diet and exercise. This also gives them a chance to slowly reduce the medication overtime and better maintain weight loss if and when they discontinue using semaglutide. It IS possible to maintain weight loss after semaglutide. The Cameo Surgery Center team can help patients remain focused and determined. The semaglutide prevents major setbacks often seen with traditional dieting.

Wonder If Semaglutide Weight Loss Works The Best For You?


Semaglutide is safe to take long term. The medication does need to be stopped as long as a patient continues to tolerate it well and benefit from it. Patients can work with their provider while taking semaglutide to determine how long they will take the medication. Generally, it is recommended that patients take semaglutide for a minimum of six months.

Patients on semaglutide should refrain from drinking alcohol. Firstly, it adds calories that would otherwise not have been consumed. Also, it can increase the risk of hypoglycemia (lower blood sugar). While it is entirely possible that patients may be able to have a drink or two occasionally, it is not advised. Hypoglycemia—especially in those without a history of it—can be dangerous. Therefore, it is best to avoid drinking while taking semaglutide all together.

Semaglutide does not target one area of the body. It leads to weight loss all around the body, including the belly. Not only is this the natural and healthy process of losing weight, but it also tends to look more natural as a patient continues to lose weight. Eventually, a patient may require a skin removal surgery like a tummy tuck to get the perfectly flat tummy earned via dedication to weight loss.

After the first dose of semaglutide, patients will not necessarily see weight begin to come off immediately. Some patients begin to see visible weight loss within five weeks, though the average amount of time is around eight weeks. Patients who follow a diet and exercise plan will see weight loss sooner than those who do not.

Yes, the HCG diet is the other diet we offer at our facility. The results of this diet tend to be more extreme and rapid.  In addition to taking HCG daily, patients follow a very calorie restrictive diet. We have helped thousands of people lose weight effectively and quickly.  Cameo Surgery Center was written up in the NY Times over a decade ago as the expert “go-to” facility for this diet and it continues to be effective for the right person under the right circumstances.

When prescribed for weight loss, semaglutide—to our knowledge—is not covered by insurance. This may change. However, Cameo Surgery Center aims to make semaglutide affordable and can work with financing companies and options so all patients can reach their weight loss goals.
