Skinny Shot For Weight Loss

Weight loss with semaglutide and tirzepatide is a highly effective way to manage your health and overall well-being. Aging, a changing metabolism, and life events such as pregnancy can lead to weight gain that is difficult to resolve, even with significant changes to a diet and exercise regimen. Although body contouring procedures such as liposuction are effective, these methods are invasive and may require a longer recovery. Weight loss injections, a low-maintenance treatment, are gaining popularity as more adults seek relief from excess weight.

At Plastische Chirurgie am Klosterstern, we offer several popular weight loss solutions to help you reduce excess weight. Dr. Dalia Tobbia specializes in plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery, and is one of the only clinics in Hamburg to offer routine in-person injections for weight loss. She is qualified by years of experience helping patients achieve life-changing results.

Why let excess weight affect your health and quality of life when a manageable, low-maintenance solution is only an appointment away? Contact our office or call +49 40 46 091 076 to begin your treatment and achieve your ideal figure.

About Weight Loss

Approximately 18% of adults in Germany qualify as obese, with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or greater. (1) The good news is that you no longer need to waste time on trendy, difficult-to-follow weight loss regimens. With weight loss injections, patients can safely and effectively reach their goal weight. When you combine weight loss injections with healthy food and exercise, the results are powerful.

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are popular weight-loss injections that trigger hormonal changes in the body to help you lose weight effectively.


Semaglutide, also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, is an injection for weight loss and diabetes management. It mimics the action of a natural hormone called GLP-1, which is normally released by the intestines in response to food intake. GLP-1 helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin secretion from the pancreas and reducing glucagon secretion, which helps lower blood glucose levels. (2) Semaglutide injections can help you improve your BMI and reduce stubborn fat that you have not been able to get rid of with exercise and diet alone. When you combine this injection with lifestyle changes, you can experience an improved BMI and long-term results. (3)


Tirzepatide (Mounjaro) is an injection approved by the European Medicines Agency to treat type 2 diabetes. (4) Like semaglutide, tirzepatide is also a GLP-1 agonist, the use of which leads to considerable weight loss. (5) Unlike semaglutide, tirzepatide also activates glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptors. GIP is another hormone released from the intestines in response to food intake. Similar to GLP-1, GIP promotes the release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells. By activating both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, tirzepatide enhances the insulin response to meals, leading to better blood sugar control. Tirzepatide is a weekly injection that can help adults eliminate excess weight when combined with a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Benefits of Weight Loss Injections

Weight loss is not just aesthetic. If you are overweight, losing weight can reduce your risk of developing long-term health concerns such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and joint pain. Excess weight can reduce your quality of life and cause the skin to sag. This can lead to personal hygiene problems, low self-esteem, issues with intimacy, and skin irritation. The benefits of weight loss include the following:

  • Achieving your ideal body contour
  • Reducing the risk of developing diabetes
  • Improving mobility
  • Enhancing your overall well-being
  • Lowering your blood pressure
  • Experiencing an increase in energy
  • Reducing joint pain
  • Improving mobility

Weight loss injections can help you achieve these benefits safely and effectively. Although you will likely need to adjust your lifestyle to maintain your results, your enhanced quality of life will be worth the minor inconvenience of a weekly injection.

Candidates for Weight Loss Injections

If you need to lose weight, weight-loss injections are an extremely effective option. To receive semaglutide or tirzepatide, you must have a BMI that indicates you are overweight. Dr. Dalia will review your medical history to determine which weight loss injection is best for you. Your eligibility will also depend on personal factors such as your medical history. If your BMI is normal and you do not need to lose weight, you may not be a candidate for weight loss injections.

Personal Consultation

We will discuss your weight loss goals, ideal figure, medical history, and expectations at your personal consultation. If you have a history of depression, cancer, kidney disease, stomach problems, or allergic reactions, we may recommend another treatment. Exercise and a healthy diet will help you achieve your weight loss goals, so please come prepared to discuss your current lifestyle. You will also need to make time each week for regular injections. Consistency is key with this weight loss treatment. If you decide to receive injections, you should adjust your lifestyle to include healthy meals, regular exercise, and routine injection appointments.


Before your weight loss injection appointment, Dr. Dalia will give you instructions on how to prepare. She will use a small needle to administer the injection. The dose you receive will depend on personal factors discussed in your consultation, but usually, patients start on the minimum dose, and then gradually increase the dosage incrementally over time. She usually places the injection under the skin in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. The process is simple and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. The injection will immediately trigger insulin production and lower blood sugar levels. After your injection, you will receive aftercare instructions and can return home to rest.

Weight Loss Recovery

The recovery from a weight loss injection is minimal, but you may experience minor discomfort. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can place a cold pack over the area, but be careful not to apply excessive pressure. You will need to avoid alcohol for 24 hours after your injection and ask our team when you can resume intense aerobic exercise. After your injection, you might experience temporary gastrointestinal changes. (5) Rest after your first injection and call our care team if you experience any persistent side effects.


After a course of weight loss injections, you will be able to enjoy a significant reduction of excess weight and be on your way to looking and feeling like your best self. Joint pain will gradually dissipate and mobility issues will lessen. You will likely experience increased energy levels which can make physical exercise and general activities easier and more enjoyable.

Are semaglutide and tirzepatide the same?

No, semaglutide and tirzepatide are distinct medications but belong to the same class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. While both medications share similar mechanisms of action, they may differ in terms of specific properties, dosing regimens, and potential side effects.

What are the potential side effects of semaglutide and tirzepatide?

Common side effects of GLP-1 receptor agonist medications may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, and decreased appetite. It is vital to discuss any concerns or persistent side effects with your doctor.

Are the results of weight loss injections permanent?

Lifestyle changes can lead to weight gain, so the results are not permanent, but they are sustainable with a healthy diet and exercise. You will be able to enjoy your results for many years to come, and we will provide the information and tools you need to adjust your lifestyle.

Can you give me injections that I can do myself at home?

No, you need to have the injection at the office, and injections require a prescription. Dr. Dalia administers weight loss treatments under supervision to ensure you receive the best results.

How long will I need the injections?

The length of your treatment will depend on your medical history and the results you would like to achieve. During your consultation, we will discuss the length of your treatment. We will also monitor your progress and your BMI.
