How Do Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections Work?
Semaglutide is delivered through a weekly injection, prescribed for patients who are first medically evaluated by Dr. Leedy or Dr. Wirtz and are good candidates. The medication contains the GLP-1 hormone that slows down how fast you digest food, which makes you feel fuller longer. The hormone also inhibits the liver from releasing sugar into the bloodstream, which decreases fat from building up. Semaglutide also stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin, further reducing blood sugar.
Semaglutide can be an effective solution for patients looking to achieve their weight loss goals, paired with maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program. For optimal results, we have partnered with a registered dietitian with over 10 years experience to help guide you through your weight-loss journey. If you’re considering Semaglutide weight loss injections, contact Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute for your initial consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon: Dr. Leedy.
After Weight Loss Procedures

Unfortunately, major weight loss often has drawbacks in the form of saggy excess skin and stubborn deposits of fat you just can’t shake. If you are struggling with these “side effects” of weight loss, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Leedy can help.
