What are Dietary Services at Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery?

At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery our dietary services include everything you need to set and achieve your weight loss goals. We get it. Sometimes diet and exercise don’t work. There may be many reasons for that, but we believe education and a clear plan can make all the difference. From planning and meal prep to tackling hurdles in the grocery store and lunch plans, our dietary services can help you finally lose those extra pounds.

About our Registered Dietitian

Our registered dietitian, Melissa Timonere, has been practicing for 14 years. Her main focus is weight loss, medical nutrition therapy and wellness. She is versed in helping all age groups –from infants to the elderly. She loves helping everyone achieve their weight loss and nutrition goals. When those goals are met, people gain a sense of achievement and satisfaction. This helps with confidence, which in turn, helps those to achieve other goals in their life. Witnessing that kind of transformation in someone is astounding. When nutritional eating is practiced, you are likely to have a healthier and longer life. That is our goal in these dietary services.

Dietary Services Menu

Our diertary services include the following essential steps:


Nutrition Consultation

This one-hour nutrition assessment will cover the roadmap to your transformation. Set goals and reach them safely with a diet and lifestyle plan that is specifically designed for your individual needs.

After your nutritional consultation, you may be eligible for prescription therapy. Our board-certified Physician Assistant, Joni Ricketts PAC will perform a history and physical exam, as well as medical clearance, and prescribe a weight loss medication if necessary.


Follow Up

At this appointment, you will follow up on goals, address questions or concerns and make adequate changes to reach your goals. With our team’s support, we will help you achieve your goals. The follow-up lasts between 30 minutes and one hour.


Supermarket Tour

The supermarket tour will help you become supermarket savvy. You will learn how to read nutrition and ingredient labels, which areas to avoid in the supermarket, and on which areas to concentrate.


Pantry Makeover

Your pantry is the foundation for eating healthy. The pantry makeover includes determining which groceries to keep and which to get rid of in order to meet your goals.


Recipe Revision & Analysis

Have a recipe you love but know it’s not the best for you? Now you can have that recipe revised, so you’re still eating to reach your goals. You will still get to eat your favorite foods! We will also analyze the recipe, educate you on the amount of calories, protein, fat, and carbohydrates you’re getting per serving.
