Rejuvenation Center in 2007. She explains, “I knew it would take time, but now we are doing very, very well. When you show someone how to lose weight, you also show them how to eat for life.”


Her approach is unique in that is so comprehensive. “Some places just show you how to lose weight and goodbye. Other places administer li- posuction and other aesthetic stuff and goodbye,” she says. “There’s noth- ing about your health, nothing about your lifestyle. I combine both because I help you to lose weight and I also show you how to maintain it. I show you what you can eat in a healthy way, based on your metabolism.” But Jenyons doesn’t stop there, noting, “It’s very rare that somebody loses weight and they don’t have something they want to fix. So I do body contouring in a minimally inva- sive way, without having to go under a general anesthetic. It’s a nice com- bination that we offer in the office.” She uses a laser liposuction tech- nique which requires only local anes- thesia and melts fat into a liquid form that can be removed from the chin, belly and hips, using very small, less- invasive instruments than traditional liposuction. She also uses an external radio frequency treatment that ad- dresses the fat underneath and tight- ens the skin, and says, “They are very effective for those that don’t want any cuts at all.” In seeking the best methods of weight reduction, Jenyons says, “My research led me to the metabolic diet, or HCG diet. The reason I like the method is because I feel it is more natural and freer of side effects. HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin, is a natural hormone that we produce in


small amounts in the body. Women produce it in high amounts when they are pregnant and I, being an OB/GYN, know that. Clearly, this has to be done under the supervision of a physician, and I do a medical evaluation to be sure that the person can use it.” The use of HCG is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administra- tion, but not specifically for weight loss. it can legally be used “off label” (for alternate uses) by medical profes- sionals. That’s why some local gov- ernments have restricted its general use. Jenyons says, “What happens with the over-the-counter HCG is that it’s not the real medicine. It’s just supplementation that increases your own body’s HCG. So it’s not as effec- tive a treatment. The reason I think it should be administered under a doc- tor’s supervision is that we can take a


medical history and determine if it is safe for the person to use.” To maintain the weight loss, Jenyons point out, “We give you a healthy diet based on personal me- tabolism. If your metabolism says that you can only eat 1,800 calories, we need to show you what that looks like in good food. A lot of people regain their weight loss because they don’t have that missing piece.”
