Support Groups

Most bariatric surgeons agree: Ongoing support after surgery leads to the greatest level of success.

Why? Because support groups give you a great opportunity to discuss personal or professional issues that arise from surgery or from a history of obesity. And they allow you to surround yourself with people who understand and support your goals, which directly increases your chances of long-term success.

Support groups also help you develop realistic expectations. That is, weight loss surgery will not immediately resolve existing emotional difficulties, or heal the years of damage caused by a lifetime of being overweight.

Because support groups are so important, our surgeons recommend ongoing support groups in place for you. Turn to them before and after your surgery for short-term questions and long-term camaraderie.
