Lose excess pounds with Tirzepatide

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a prescription injectable medication designed to help patients who are struggling with being overweight and the conditions that come with it. Tirzepatide is a  dual agonist (a dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor co-agonist). Its mechanism involves reducing appetite and hunger, enabling patients to feel full throughout the day without consuming unnecessary amounts of calories.

What are the benefits of Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide offers a wide array of advantages for patients who are looking to lose weight. Some of these include:

  • Manages blood sugar levels, protecting patients from Diabetes-related issues
  • Substantial weight loss
  • Achieves improvements in cardiovascular health, protecting patients from heart attacks and strokes
  • Lowers the incidence of hypoglycemia (incredibly low blood sugar levels)

How does Tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide works by slowing down the passage of food through the stomach. As a result, patients feel fuller faster after eating a meal and retain that feeling for a longer period of time. Patients feel less hungry throughout the day, enabling them to get by on fewer calories and watch their waistlines shrink.

Who is a candidate for Tirzepatide?

  • Are willing to follow the treatment plan, which involves weekly, self-administered injections
  • Are having difficulty losing weight with exercise and diet alone
  • Are looking to lose weight, stabilize their blood sugar levels, or both
  • Are interested in cardiovascular benefits on top of weight loss 

Before going forward with Tirzepatide treatments, patients should consult with a board-certified practitioner to make sure that the treatment is right for them. The team at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute proudly helps its patients get to where they want to be with this groundbreaking weight loss protocol. 

How soon can I expect to lose weight?

While Tirzepatide starts working right after you take the first dose, it can take several weeks to months for patients to see a noticeable difference in their weight or blood sugar levels. As with any weight loss protocol, patience is key. With time, those who choose Tirzepatide can lose as much as 16% of their baseline body weight.

How do I take Tirzepatide?


Tirzepatide is self-administered through weekly injections that patients can carry out in the comfort of their own homes. We provide all of our patients with instructions on how to administer the injections, the recommended dosage, and the ideal time for administration.


We monitor all of our patients’ progress in order to ensure that they are moving toward their goals in a safe and healthy manner. Patients will come in for follow-up appointments to check in with our team and track their progress. 

Lifestyle adjustments

While Tirzepatide alone can be incredibly beneficial toward one’s weight loss goals, it does not exempt patients from the vital, healthy lifestyle changes that they need to make. We work together with our patients to create diet and exercise plans, ensuring that they put their best foot forward toward a healthy future. 

Most patients are able to lose as much as 1 to 2 pounds a week. When it comes to weight loss treatments, slow and stable improvements are preferred over drastic changes.

Are there any side effects?

Like any other treatment, Tirzepatide is not without potential side effects. While rare, some patients may experience:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation

If any of these conditions should arise, it is vital that patients reach out to us right away so that we can help with management.
