Dr. Angelina Clarifies that Wegovy AKA "The Skinny Shot" is more beneficial than superficial: As regular consumers of social media, we open our minds to participate in trending topics and challenges. Hair products, makeup tools, and foreign foods gain popularity and quickly become sparse on store shelves. Recently there has been controversy over the excessive use of Wegovy, an anti-obesity medication for long-term weight management. The shortage of Wegovy caused providers to begin prescribing their weight loss patients with Ozempic, an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.  President and Co-founder of Ideal Body Institute, Dr. Angelina Postoev has over 10 years of experience to serve Georgia with the best surgical care in the state. She completed her residence at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, one year of critical care at Ohio state, and one year of Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship.
