Dr. Mansour

At Blue Lotus Weight & Wellness in Austin, Texas, patients can undergo comprehensive medication assisted weight loss programs.

Dr. Ibrahim Mansour treats patients by offering services including medically assisted diets, medical weight loss management, appetite suppressants, weight loss supplements, and treatment for weight-related snoring and sleep apnea. Dr. Mansour received his medical degree from St. George’s University in 2011. He completed Internal Medicine residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York in 2014. He then went on to become Program Director and Hospitalist at TeamHealth in St. David’s Healthcare System in Austin, Texas.  Dr. Mansour believes that diet and exercise will always be extremely important, but the use of medication for both appetite and craving control can be necessary for many patients. This applies not only to losing weight but also to maintaining weight loss for the long-term.

Medications are used in combination with diet plans and exercise regimens to reduce appetite, control cravings, improve insulin sensitivity, and lower the metabolic set-point. Blue Lotus stresses high protein, low carbohydrate, and low-fat eating for nearly all patients. In general, our clinic places little emphasis on actual calorie counting, exchange lists, and specific diets. We prefer to focus on encouraging sensible eating habits with helpful guidelines and meal suggestions The practice also encourages exercise in any form. Consistency will be the key to success. In most cases, exercise won’t seem like it is influencing weight loss for several months. Patients will need to adhere to their weight loss plan until visible changes are seen over time.

Major benefits include cardiovascular conditioning, body toning, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, increasing HDLs, and an overall sense of wellbeing.

Blue Lotus Weight & Wellness can treat patients virtually in Texas, Washington, New Mexico, and New York. We are here to help you accomplish your weight loss goals!
