HCG Weight Loss

Many people who struggle with their weight find that conventional means of dieting and exercising aren’t enough to reach their weight loss goals. Weight can be attributed to a number of factors outside of lifestyle, such as genetics, while people with even the best of intentions may not have the time to devote to exercise that they would like. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a natural hormone that has been found to assist in weight loss when combined with a healthy diet, helping men and women achieve their ideal figures safely and naturally.

Dr. Jennifer Harrington is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in wellness programs for adults of all backgrounds. Her extensive training in the realm of health and natural weight loss makes her uniquely equipped to guide men and women to their goals with customized treatment plans.

Harrington + Associates Plastic Surgery has helped women and men from the Twin Cities area and across Minnesota accomplish their goals with HCG diet plans. Contact us online or call our Plymouth office today at 651-290-7600 for more information about HCG for weight loss, including pricing.

Who Is a Good Candidate for HCG Therapy?

Most people in good overall health can be candidates for a customized HCG diet. Some of the most common reasons to consider starting HCG therapy include:

  • Trouble keeping weight off after brief weight loss
  • Fat stored in unwanted areas doesn’t respond to dieting or exercise
  • Fat is distributed disproportionately throughout the body

Your HCG Therapy Program

During your initial consultation with Dr. Harrington, she will evaluate your physique and lifestyle to determine whether HCG dieting is right for you. She will also request information about your general health, such as blood pressure levels, cardiovascular health and whether you have experienced liver or kidney problems. If you are determined to be a good candidate for HCG injections, she will map out a plan for you to meet your weight loss goals using our unique HCG therapy.

The combination of HCG therapy and a healthy diet was first described as a weight loss method more than 60 years ago. While HCG alone will not affect your body weight, when supplemented to a balanced, low-caloric diet, our patients have seen tremendous success. Many people lose around 20 pounds during their first 4 to 5 weeks on our HCG therapy program.

The HCG hormone may also stimulate an endorphin receptor in the brain that is responsible for signaling a feeling of fullness after eating. This can break the brain’s dependence on unhealthy foods, such as sugars and carbohydrates, making dieting easy.

Our patients who have taken part in HCG weight loss have reported benefits beyond simply reaching their target weight, including:

  • Retention of muscle while fat is lost
  • An elimination of cravings and addictions to carbohydrates and fats
  • Easy maintenance of weight loss
  • An increased ability to control and manage portions
  • Improved energy and mental clarity

What You Get with Our HCG Diet Plan

In addition to your own customized diet plan created by Dr. Harrington and catered to your individual needs, our HCG therapy program includes the following:

  • A FREE 2-month supply of vitamins at the first visit
  • A 30-day supply of sublingually administered pure HCG (15,000 units)
  • A complete health assessment and dietary consult with a certified physician’s assistant
  • An HCG user’s manual and diet guide

Also available is a before-and–after BIA analysis. BIA, or bioelectric impedance analysis, is a fast, accurate and safe way to measure 6 key body composition elements. Through the study of the electrical properties of the body and their changes over time, our health practitioners can easily measure clients’ overall health and quickly chart their progress. BIA analysis is quick, painless and completely non-invasive, using 4 electrodes placed on the body; no needles or blood work required.  The cost of the analysis is $150. This may be billed to your insurance.

After your initial month with our HCG therapy program, patients who remain on our diet plan will receive a 30-day supply of sublingually administered pure HCG (15,000 units).

Depending on your cosmetic goals after weight loss, Dr. Harrington may recommend treatments to put the finishing touches on your appearance once you complete our HCG therapy program. CoolSculpting®, a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, is popular among people hoping to minimize leftover fat deposits, while Kybella™ injections can smooth away a double chin for better jawline definition.
