Comparing Weight Loss Services in McAllen: Sculpsure, the HCG Diet, and Orbera® Weight Loss System

Was losing weight one of your resolutions this year? Many people attempt to commit to losing weight every January but get quickly discouraged due to busy schedules, lack of meal prepping, food temptations, and so on. Uptown Medical Wellness center in McAllen would like to compare three popular weight loss services available for those looking into weight loss systems.


SculpSure is a light-based treatment that targets fat cells under the skin. Unlike harmful weight loss treatments, Sculpsure minimizes the fat cells, then the body naturally absorbs and removes those damaged cells. Sculpsure:

  • Requires no downtime recovery.
  • Treatment can be done in under an hour.
  • Helps fat cells not regenerate again.

The HCG Diet

Another approach to weight loss is the HCG Diet. The diet uses HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone to regulate your hunger levels by balancing metabolism. We can assist you in creating a diet plan that works for you. HCG Diet may help:

  • Maintain muscle as you burn fat.
  • Stimulate your metabolism on cue.
  • It may help give you muscle toning.

Ask our medical wellness staff about pairing additional services for your weight loss goal, such as the DEXA Body Composition Scan.

Orbera® Weight Loss System

If you’ve struggled to lose weight, but nothing seems to work, it may be time to try the Orbera® Weight Loss System. Orbera® can help you lose the weight you’d like with exercise and healthy eating. Orbera® is also non-invasive, non-surgical, and there are no incisions.

  • The procedure takes under an hour.
  • Patients are mildly sedated before.
  • Orbera® gastric balloon stays in for six months and is then removed.
