Weight loss is often a difficult and exhausting endeavor to achieve. While some people can do it through diet and exercise alone, it is not always possible to lose weight with these methods alone. For people with conditions that impact their weight or with limited mobility, diet and exercise may not provide the results necessary. In the last year, the FDA has approved two medications for weight loss. The most recent medication to get approved was Zepbound. The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery proudly offers the best Zepbound Bellevue and Kirkland residents have available to them.

What Is Zepbound? 

Zepbound is a brand name for a medication called tirzepatide. Tirzepatide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 that mimic select hunger hormones which allow patients to feel full longer, experience fewer cravings, and find themselves feeling fuller sooner during and after meals. However, what makes Zepbound injections different from other GLP-1 medications is that it also target an additional hormone called GIP.

As a dual receptor agonist, it is the only one of its kind. The approach may make Zepbound more effective in certain situations or patients than in others. However, it is best to discuss this with a qualified medical professional before choosing the right injectable medication for weight loss.

Benefits & Risks 

Like all medications, Zepbound carries benefits and risks. They may stack up unevenly from patient to patient which is why it is important to evaluate each individual before prescribing Zepbound Bellevue.

The benefits may include:

  • Significant weight loss
  • Improvement in some medical conditions
  • Better mobility and range of motion
  • Reduces the severity of setbacks and plateaus
  • Can provide patients with a confidence boost
  • Few side effects
  • Effective
  • Low risk
  • Little to no pain
  • Can help patients achieve a goal weight to get other procedures
  • Safe to take long-term
  • Easy to administer
  • Patients can give themselves injections at home
  • Convenient
  • Monitored monthly by a medical professional at Seattle Plastic Surgery

Though while it does not pose a major risk for the majority of people, Zepbound can carry higher risks for certain populations. However, overall, the risks associated with tirzepatide injections are relatively low.

The risks could include:

  • Infection
  • Swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site
  • Scarring
  • Severe side effects such as stomach pain or diarrhea
  • Allergic reaction
  • Pancreatitis
  • Low blood sugar
  • Severe thyroid problems

Major risks or complications are rare when the medication is used as prescribed. Make sure to provide your entire medical history, including allergies, family history, and current medications. This will allow your provider to fully evaluate your risks and their severity when taking Zepbound Bellevue.

Zepbound vs. Wegovy 

Zepbound is similar to Wegovy—also known as Ozempic, which became available earlier this year for weight loss—but it is not the same drug. Instead of semaglutide, which is found in Wegovy, Zepbound uses tirzepatide. This medication is also a GLP-1 agonist and is prescribed for many of the same conditions as semaglutide.

However, Zepbound appears to provide fewer or less severe side effects. It may even be more effective, but this varies from person to person. For people who did not find success with semaglutide or who were bothered by side effects, Zepbound provides a great and likely alternative.

While they are different drugs, semaglutide, and tirzepatide should not be taken together. If you want to switch, discuss the proper way to do so with your provider.

Before & After Bellevue Zepbound Treatment 

Consultation 

The first step to starting your Zepbound injection journey is to schedule a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. One of our qualified providers will meet with you—either in person or over Zoom—to discuss the treatment protocol and your candidacy.

First, your provider will want to understand your struggle with weight loss and factors that contribute, like medical conditions, body mass index, previous methods or medications tried, and any medical conditions that may be linked to extra weight. Second, your provider will need to understand your personal and family history.

Finally, since Zepbound is a medication that patients inject at home, this must be possible for that particular patient. Understandably, not all people are comfortable with this, and we do have ways to work with patients with varying preferences and needs.

If deemed a good candidate and prescribed tirzepatide Bellevue, patients will receive their monthly medication and supplies at home.

Injections 

At the consultation, your provider will demonstrate how and where to give yourself the injections. Many patients find it much easier than it looks, but we encourage asking questions to ensure your full understanding and comfort.

When patients proceed to inject themselves, they will do so in one of three areas: the stomach, the thigh, or the upper arm. Ideally, patients should rotate the area they inject each week. Zepbound is a once-weekly injection and should be administered on the same day each week.

Diet & Exercise 

Our providers highly recommend that patients follow a reduced-calorie diet and exercise regimen. This is completely customizable based on the patient’s food allergies and restrictions. Additionally, we do not expect patients to make large changes to their diet or lifestyle immediately. But, consciously making the effort to improve these two areas can help improve the results of Zepbound Bellevue.

In general, our providers tend to recommend:

  • Larger focus on strength training versus cardio
  • Reduce red meat consumption
  • Increase fresh fruit and vegetable intake
  • Drink more water
  • Listen to your body and reduce foods that interact negatively with it
  • Go at your own pace

Going Forward 

Moving forward with treatment, patients will meet once weekly with their provider to track their progress and make adjustments if necessary. This can be done in person or virtually. Patients and their providers can also discuss switching medications and the diet and exercise plan.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What Is The Dose Of Zepbound For Weight Loss? 

Zepbound was trialed and can be prescribed at three different dosage levels: 5 mg, 10 mg, or 15 mg. This gives patients more flexibility in their dosage, and they can increase or decrease it based on their body’s response. However, any dose changes will need to be discussed and approved with your provider.

Do You Gain Weight Back After Stopping Mounjaro? 

You can. While it is not guaranteed, some people will see a mild weight increase once they stop tirzepatide. However, this can be mitigated by weaning off the medication over several weeks and ensuring that lifestyle changes were made and can be stuck to. It is perfectly normal for your weight to fluctuate moderately throughout your life, but you may consider seeing your provider occasionally to discuss any major weight changes.

Does Insurance Cover Zepbound? 

We are currently unaware of no insurance coverage for Zepbound. If this changes and we can accommodate these patients, we will update our patients accordingly.

The makers of Zepbound do have a savings program in place that can help reduce medication costs over time. Regardless of how they are paying for Zepbound, patients are encouraged to enroll in this savings program if they intend to stay on the medication long-term.

Are There Side Effects Of Tirzepatide? 

Zepbound Bellevue can cause common side effects, including:

  • Upset stomach
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Nausea

These side effects tend to be relatively mild and fade once the body gets used to the medication. Rarer or more severe side effects are possible but not common:

  • Low blood sugar levels
  • Hair loss
  • Vomiting
  • Injection site infections or reactions
