Obesity Q & A

What causes obesity?

The cause of obesity varies among individuals. Some of the most common reasons are:

  • Diet
  • Sedentary snacking
  • Lack of or not enough exercise
  • Stress
  • Genetics

A person is technically considered obese if they have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. BMI measures the approximate amount of fat you have based on your height and weight.

While being overweight and being obese is not the same thing, extra fat can raise your risk for many different health problems, make daily activities more difficult, and impact your self-esteem. Since the condition can get worse with age, early obesity treatment is key to preventing problems.

How do I know if I’m obese?

While obesity is usually determined by BMI, this isn’t always the best indicator of body fat percentage. If you’re curious to know how much body fat you actually have, a skin calipers test or advanced 3D body scan can give you an accurate answer.

Dr. Revana conducts a thorough physical evaluation to determine how much weight you need to lose to maintain a healthy body fat percentage and avoid an obese classification.

How is obesity treated?

In addition to diet and exercise modifications, Dr. Revana treats obesity with the Zerona laser, the first FDA-approved method of shrinking the abnormal fat cells from the hips, waist, and thighs without surgery.

Zerona disrupts the outer membranes of fat cells, allowing them to release or “empty” the lipids inside. As this happens, your body can process and remove these fats.

This non-invasive form of body contouring helps to speed up the process of fat loss, while tightening and contouring loose skin.

The Zerona obesity treatment usually consists of six painless sessions, where you lie under the laser device for around 20 minutes on your front and 20 minutes on your back, however 12 sessions are recommended for the treatment of 1 area.

What results can I expect from obesity treatment?

Obesity treatment with the Zerona laser is non-invasive, which means there are no needles, bleeding, fat suctioning, or recovery time. Most people don’t experience any side effects, and you can see a visible reduction in fat after just three treatments. Full results are usually visible after the recommended six-twelve sessions, which take place over two-four weeks.
