Being overweight or obese means having an excess amount of body fat that may impair health. While being overweight is generally defined by a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 25, obesity is characterized by a BMI over 30. There are different types of obesity, including monogenic, syndromic, and common obesity, each with distinct characteristics and potential complications.
At the heart of our weight management is the understanding of metabolic syndrome – a cluster of conditions like increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels, that together increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Visceral fat plays a key role in metabolic syndrome as it secretes inflammatory substances and hormones that can disrupt metabolism.
Numerous factors contribute to obesity, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental influences. Symptoms often include shortness of breath, increased sweating, snoring, inability to cope with sudden physical activity, feeling tired every day, and back or joint pains. Diagnosis typically involves calculating BMI and waist circumference and assessing the presence of any obesity-related conditions.
At Qazi Cosmetic Center, we recognize the power of data. By tracking health metrics and understanding your unique body composition, metabolic rate, lifestyle, and personal goals, we provide an individualized weight loss plan that’s as unique as you are.
Our treatment plans are as diverse as our patients. They can involve:

What is the difference between being overweight and obese?
Being overweight and obesity are both terms for ranges of weight that are greater than what is generally considered healthy for a given height. The terms also identify ranges of weight that have been shown to increase the likelihood of certain diseases and other health problems. Overweight is defined as a BMI of 25 or more, obesity is defined as a BMI of 30 or more.
What is metabolic syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels — that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
What role does visceral fat play in my health?
Visceral fat is body fat that’s stored within the abdominal cavity around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. It can increase inflammation and the production of harmful substances, leading to higher risks of metabolic disorders and heart disease.
