Dr. Fariba Gharai, MD – Committed to patient safety and longevity

Dr. Gharai is a board-certified cardiovascular surgeon who is passionate about elevating her patients’ quality of life by helping them look and feel their best. Every individual is treated with respect and compassion, just like a family member. Dr. Gharai’s commitment to excellence is evidenced by the fact that she performs every procedure herself, including injectables and medical weight loss treatments. 

What is medical weight loss?

Obesity and obesity-related illnesses can be difficult and time-consuming to manage on one’s own. It can be challenging to stay motivated and seek out the support so essential to making progress. This is where a medical weight loss program supervised by a board-certified physician can truly help obese patients break through barriers and accomplish the goals they set for themselves.

During her 16-year career as a cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Gharai noticed that the most striking common risk factor leading to advanced cardiovascular disease is obesity. She felt she could make a difference in her community by bringing awareness to this preventable concern through education and the creation of her own medical weight loss program, designed to help patients achieve the success they envision.

What sets the medical weight loss program at Vein & Aesthetic Center in Tampa Bay apart?

There are three leading factors that make medical weight loss with Dr. Gharai the ideal choice for discerning patients:

  1. From your initial consultation, Dr. Gharai is invested and involved, managing and overseeing your weight loss journey. She monitors your progress, attends to other medical concerns, analyzes your blood work, and maintains your overall cardiovascular health while supporting you emotionally.
  2. Participants receive access to a support group of other patients who are also progressing along their weight loss path. Solidarity can provide comfort, making the process more enjoyable and stress-free. Patients can discuss their goals, fears, successes, and setbacks, sharing coping strategies through firsthand information. 
  3. There is no one-formula-fits-all when it comes to medical weight loss. We customize each treatment process according to your unique goals, overall health, and current BMI. Rather than promoting quick fixes that inevitably lead to patients regaining weight once the program is over, we favor gentle holistic lifestyle changes that will support long-term health.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

  • Guidance from a board-certified physician
  • Access to a support group of fellow weight loss patients
  • Access to cutting-edge weight loss technology
  • Customized meal plans
  • Enhanced energy and stamina
  • Improved mood and mental health
  • Lowered risk of heart disease and other medical concerns
  • Reduced back, neck, shoulder, and joint pain
  • Greater mobility and ease of movement
  • A boost in self-confidence

Who is a good candidate for medical weight loss?

Patients struggling with obesity and medical concerns related to obesity such as sleep disorders, hypertension, and diabetes can strongly benefit from the support and guidance provided by a medical weight loss program. Patients receiving professional help with their weight loss journey typically lose more weight and keep it off longer than those who opt to shed the pounds on their own. Ideals candidates typically have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of over 30 and need to lose at least 20 pounds.
