New Jersey Bariatric Center now offers Wegovy™, the FDA-approved prescription weight loss injection. Wegovy™ is a weekly, self-administered injection used for the treatment of chronic weight management in adults with obesity. Wegovy™ works by mimicking a hormone that targets the area of your brain that regulates appetite, with studies showing that the drug helped people lose up to 15% of their body weight when used in combination with diet and exercise.
