Andre Giannakopoulos, M.D. did his residency training in internal medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. While there he recognized one the greatest challenges in his internal medicine office was dealing with his obese patients and getting them to lose weight.
"Unfortunately, I just didn’t have enough time to spend with each individual’s needs, nor did I possess enough specific knowledge in how to combat this chronic disease."
His determination to make a difference brought him to Long Island Weight Loss Institute where he partnered with Dr. Michael Kaplan, D.O. to share with him, his expertise.
With the right approach, the right knowledge and more time, this disease can be managed and defeated, one patient at a time. At Long Island Weight Loss Institute, the knowledge is here, the time is now. Let us help you take back control of your life, and most importantly, your health.
You've tried every diet program in the book - and then some. You've lost weight and felt pretty good. Then, you've gained it back and felt angry, depressed, even disgusted. You may even have resigned yourself to a life of obesity and poor health.
The problem you have been having with your weight loss is a universal one. Most people look at weight loss as a "quick fix" or a magic solution. You know by now that there is no magic diet program. There is, however, a healthy medical weight loss solution.
The solution is to look at your obesity as the very real and very dangerous medical condition it is. A disease, if you will. Then, recognize that to treat it properly and effectively, you've got to treat it with the help and support of a medical weight loss professional.
Dr. Michael Kaplan, a Board Certified internist and a specialist in bariatric medicine, has long recognized the medical origins of obesity. With the establishment of the Long Island Weight Loss Institute, a medical weight loss center with locations in Wesbury and Smithtown, New York, he has made a commitment to work exclusively with people suffering from obesity - and the unhealthy effects of obesity. More than that, he has made a commitment to care for each individual under his care as an individual, providing them a diet program unique to their personal needs - both physical and emotional.
Dr. Kaplan and his team of medical weight loss professionals create a comprehensive, medically based diet program for every patient that includes a special dietary component, a one-to-one counseling component, and an exercise component. In many cases, the dietary component includes the use of the Optifast liquid diet, the most nutritionally complete and medically sound food replacement product on the market. Once the old "food habits" have been broken, Dr. Kaplan and his medical weight loss staff create the appropriate food maintenance regimen and diet program designed for a life time of healthy eating habits.
You won't find magic at the Long Island Weight Loss Institute, but you will find yourself. You'll find yourself healthier, more fit, and more spiritually happy than ever before. Treat your obesity like the medical condition it is, and you'll simply feel better in lots of important ways.
Mesotherapy is an exciting specialty in aesthetic medicine that has revolutionized the treatment of fat and cellulite. It offers results similar to liposuction without surgery. Mesotherapy is a safe, non-invasive procedure that involves the injection of microscopic quantities of pharmaceutical agents, natural plant extracts, homeopathic medicines and vitamins into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. Each patient is treated with a customized formula to address specific needs and body types.
Mesotherapy attacks the causes of cellulite and optimally targets adipose cells virtually melting the fat away. It can be used for body contouring of the hips, buttocks, inner thighs, love handles, abdomen and arms, and for the reduction of cellulite. The most popular areas treated are the love handles, saddle bags, and arms.
