Are you fed up with trying one diet plan after another or working out with no results? If so, then it could be that you’re targeting the wrong areas of your body. The good news is that our medical wellness and anti-aging center in McAllen now offers the DEXA Body Composition Scan. DEXA stands for dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and provides a quick and in-depth examination of how your body works.
DEXA uses a low x-ray to record your muscle thickness, bone density, and total fat tissues. It also analyzes how your body stores fat.
This exam requires little preparation, but we ask that you:
- Drink plenty of water beforehand
- Wear loose clothing with no zippers, belts, or buttons
- Avoid calcium supplements for 24 hours beforehand
The DEXA scan also allows our consultants to determine where your body stores fat the most.
The scan also checks your:
- Resting metabolic rate
- Skeletal muscle mass
- Body fat percentage
- Body mass (found in bones, muscles, and organs) that isn’t fat-related
What Happens Next?
Once the scan is complete, we’ll provide a thorough analysis of how your body works and suggest individualized services for your weight loss. Our top weight loss services include SculpSure, the HCG Diet, MIC Injections, and more!
