Medical Weight Loss Programs

At Ciao Bella, we offer several programs for weight loss management that can be tailored to your needs and used alone or in combination.

Before starting any program, a consultation with the doctor is done to assess your health and choose the weight management program that best fits your needs and goals.



Phentermine is the most commonly prescribed prescription medication for weight loss. It is approved by the FDA as an appetite suppressant for the short-term treatment of obesity.

Phentermine is used with a doctor-approved exercise, behavior change, and reduced-calorie diet program to help you lose weight.

Mic B and B12 Injections for Weight Loss Management

MIC Injections, also referred to as Lipotropic Injections, are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits.

What is in MIC Injections?

  • M for Methionine: This is one of the ten essential amino acids. Methionine is considered a lipotropic amino acid, so it is responsible for reducing fat and cholesterol levels.
  • I for Inositol: This is a co-factor that works with Vitamin E, C, and B vitamins to also metabolize fats and cholesterol, but also does the extra work of transporting and redistributing fat in the body so that it can be used where it is actually needed.
  • C for Choline: This is a co-factor that works together with Methionine because it also is responsible for metabolizing lipids.

Vitamin B-12 injections are said to give you more energy and boost your metabolism, helping you shed unwanted pounds.

Mic B and B12 injections can be administered weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

Used alone or in combination, these medical weight loss management strategies can help you reach your weight loss goals for a healthier you.

Medically Supervised Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic Diets are high in fat, adequate in protein and low in carbohydrates. This combination changes the way energy is used in the body, converting fat into fatty acids and ketones in the liver. When there is an elevated level of ketones in the blood, one is in a state of ketosis, which has a variety of therapeutic benefits for the sick and healthy alike.

  • Your metabolism speeds up.
  • Your hunger goes away.
  • Your muscle mass increases.
  • Your blood pressure and heart disease risk profile improve.

The key is this: Eating fat does not make your insulin go up, as eating carbs or protein does. So the keto diet does not spike your insulin, and you don’t store fat. Instead, you burn it, creating the ketones that give you an effective and efficient metabolic jolt.

In addition to teaching you about the diet, you get a medical evaluation including blood work, body composition analysis, weekly ketone checks, and dietary supplements including B12 and Lipotropic injections that further help jumpstart weight-loss all in a balanced diet that addresses existing health needs.

Hormone Assisted Weight Loss Program (Clean Start Weight Loss Program)

This program includes a medically-supervised diet and hormone therapy that helps you lose weight, reduce appetite and cravings, and it’s been said to reset your metabolism and natural weight set-point so that when you lose the weight, you keep it off.

With the Clean Start Weight Loss® Program you can achieve: rapid and long-lasting weight loss faster than you ever thought possible.

Since 2011, over 80,000 people have safely lost weight on this rapid medically-supervised weight loss program.

Overseen by a physician, the program is tailored to you so that you achieve the weight loss you want, with weekly check-ins to ensure your progress and adjust as necessary to keep you on track.

The doctor will review your medical history and evaluate you, including blood work to determine if your health qualifies you to receive hormone treatments.

The effects of hormone treatments coupled with the Programs’ dietary guidelines give most individuals rapid weight loss and a natural buffer towards regaining weight.

Depending on your weight loss goals and the amount of weight you need to lose, the Clean Start Weight Loss program may last anywhere from 23 to 43 days, but you will begin to see results almost immediately.

  • I couldn't have chosen a better place to get my first surgery. I love my new breasts so much. Everyone, friends & family love them, too. I thank Dr Zavala and his staff for giving me back my confidence. Rosie in finance is such an amazing human being, and I thank her for all her info on how the procedure will go. I had no bruising whatsoever, normal pain which was tolerable and nothing out of the ordinary. Can't wait to go back for a different procedure. 🙂
