Robin

Age: 54 Total Weight Lost: 80 lbs Surgery date: 10/6/14 Presurgery BMI: 35

I was very concerned about my health, cholesterol, sleep apnea, I was very tired all the time, I had bad knees. I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing. I have lost over 80 lbs. and am at my goal weight, and still lose a pound or two here and there; but I have reached my goal weight. My family and friends say that I look amazing and are so happy for me. I recommend the surgery to every single person that I see who asked about my weight loss. I have two grandchildren and now I am able to keep up with them, I can sit on the floor and am able to get up now! It is a huge lifestyle change, I am able to walk and it is great, my life is just great!

I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great; after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world. He’s the greatest guy around, he’s an excellent doctor and has a great bedside manner. I love my results. My family and friends say I look incredible, happy and healthy. Getting the procedure is the smartest thing in the world to do. It’s a life changer. It changed my life in all positive ways.

I was always tired, aggravated, fat, and always very sick. I looked online and looked into a lot of doctors and saw NYBG was the best. I had never had a problem with diabetes in the past and I found out my blood sugar was very high. Once I heard I had diabetes I looked into the sleeve procedure. Dr. Angstadt talks to you, tells you which way to go, listens to you and assures you. The first day was a little rough, second day I was home and I walked around the blocked three times, no problems from there! My results are incredible; I can go to any store and find clothes that fit, I don’t have to go to the big and tall store anymore. My family and friends say I look great, but more so are so happy about my health. Definitely go for it, it is well worth it. Wow, overall, my health, my stamina, I feel great about myself. Before I used to hate myself and how I used to look, now I love myself!

Age: 53 Total Weight Lost: 110 lbs Surgery date: 3/12/14 Presurgery BMI: 46.8

I had seen some advertisements on the internet about NYBG and patients who had gr4eat results and decided to give them a call. Life was miserable, it was difficult to get about, I knew people were talking about me because I was heavy. I had a lot of health issues, things were tough, even buying an airplane ticket was humiliating because I had to buy two tickets. My quality of life was overall pretty bad. My health was suffering, it was deteriorating, blood pressure, sleep apnea, a couple of episodes of almost suffocating in my sleep because I was so heavy. I knew it was time to change my life or I wouldn’t be around for very long. My recovery was very easy, I started moving around pretty quick because the nurses had me up and about. Dr. Angstadt has a great bedside manner, a cheerful disposition and is very knowledgeable. He was genuinely concerned for me, he answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I couldn’t be happier; I think it is the best decision I ever made. I think it’s an individual decision for everyone, and you have to reach that point where you are ready to make a change. Once you reach that, this is a wonderful opportunity. My family is ecstatic. The first time my mother saw me after the surgery she was brought to tears and knew I was going to be around a long time. My friends are ecstatically happy, I am able to go more things and more activities, and it has completely changed the quality of my life. You have to make this decision on your own, it’s your life and it’s a life that’s going to change and if you accept that then the surgery is the way to go. I’m doing things I could never do better. My health has drastically changed. It has changed my life for the better, diabetes gone, high cholesterol gone, and no more sleep apnea. I’m physically fit, I run, I go to the gym. I’ve lost over 140 lbs.

Frank

Age: 38 Total Weight Lost: 85 lbs Surgery date: 11/19/12 Presurgery BMI: 42.7

Life was tough before the procedure, I always struggled with high blood pressure, I was always tired, walking up and down stairs, playing soccer, I was always tired. I wanted to prolong my life, I have three young boys, a 10, 8 and a 5-year-old. I also smoked before my surgery. I knew that along with my high blood pressure it was a crash course to die. So I decided to change my life to live longer for my kids. I was on the subway in Manhattan and saw a sign that said Stop Obesity for Life. I jotted it down and said I would call and never did. I waited a year and I was sitting in my office eating a hamburger at eleven o clock at night and said this is ridiculous and I decided to call. Dr. Holover has a great personality, I love him, I consider him a good friend, and I recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are amazing. I thought my recovery would be worse, but it wasn’t. It was great. After a couple of days, I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!

Cindy

Age: 42 Total Weight Lost: 190 lbs. Surgery date: 2010-07-27 Presurgery BMI: 56 I was downtown on 9/11 and couldn’t run to save my life. My co-workers had to help me. Since I’ve lost the weight, people finally notice me. I love to buy new clothes and walking down the street is a pleasure, I finally get noticed and get attention that I had wanted for so many years.

Age: 31 Total Weight Lost: 110 lbs Surgery date: 2006-11-28 Presurgery BMI: 38 I was always an outcast. I would hide behind my weight through my personality. My life is totally different post surgery. I can breathe now. It's so much easier to do everything such as shop and exercise. I can fit in one airplane seat now and even ride rollercoasters! I love being able to go into a regular store and know that my size will be on the rack. I also have so much more energy. I think Dr Garber and Dr Holover are two very skilled and talented surgeons. They both have a wonderful bedside manner. Consider yourself lucky to have them operate on you! The staff are always very sensitive to my needs. They are always accommodating and understanding!

Age: 51 Total Weight Lost: 275 lbs. Surgery date: 2006-09-11 Presurgery BMI: 59 My biggest frustration today is that I didn’t do this surgery sooner. As a builder, I can now walk through the framing studs in my buildings. My diabetes? GONE! Heel Spurs? GONE! High Blood Pressure? GONE! I can now walk into a regular clothing store and buy clothes. People who know me don’t recognize me. To be honest with you, I’m sick of talking about it!

Dawn

Age: 29 Total Weight Lost: 110 lbs. Surgery date: 2010-07-27 Presurgery BMI: 50 It’s not just about your weight, it’s about your health and your family too. Dr. Garber’s team was wonderful. After I lost the weight, I was able to reduce my blood pressure medication by 2/3 and eliminate the medication for type 2 diabetes. I’m a different person now, a happier person and it’s all thanks to what this surgery has done for me. When I get compliments, I think to myself, are they talking to me? And they ARE talking to me! It’s been four years since my surgery, and not only am I maintaining the weight loss, I’m still attending the support groups that Dr. Garber provides because they are beneficial to me. Shopping is the best thing now, I’ve even bought a 2 piece bathing suit!

Linda

Age: 42 Total Weight Lost: 182 lbs. Surgery date: 2007-07-16 Presurgery BMI: 52 Life after obesity is just wonderful! Dieting? I’ve done it all: Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, the Atkins Diet, and the grapefruit diet and I always gained the weight back. Now, since the surgery, I’ve finally lost the weight for good, and I’m not worried about gaining the weight back. Dr. Garber has a comprehensive program and a staff that helps you before and AFTER your surgery. Now I can shop in regular stores and waking up thin means that all of my clothes fit every day.

Stephanie

Age: 24 Total Weight Lost: 79 Surgery date: 2006-11-27 Presurgery BMI: 41 Before surgery I never wanted to get out of bed. I also was not able to exercise without losing my breath really fast and I had very bad sleep apnea. Life after surgery is great. I try to swim at least 4 times a week. I love going shopping and buying clothes because everything fits! I am able to run and walk for a long period of time without getting tired. The biggest change after surgery is that I am able to feel satisfied when I eat and I get full very fast! I also stopped snacking and I am not hungry all the time. Dr. Garber is fabulous. He is so kind and makes it so comfortable when I go in to see him. Over the years I established a very nice relationship with him. He is a great doctor.

Location: West Babylon, NY Age: 52 Total Weight Lost: 130 lbs. Surgery date: 2004-12-06 Presurgery BMI: 46 I always felt that when I was heavy people were always looking at me like, do I have to sit next to that? I couldn’t ever sit with my legs crossed, my skin would burn. Dr. Garber and Dr. Holover have given me a second chance at life. This surgery is not a band aid, it is a solution for life. If you are overweight and you want some sincere help, come to the seminar, I promise you will be on the road to recovery.

Age: 43 Total Weight Lost: 80 lbs. Surgery date: 2007-09-10 Presurgery BMI: 35 I tried everything in the past, low carb diets, low sugar diets, low fat diets and nothing worked long-term. My lifestyle, health and self-confidence have improved dramatically since I lost over 70 lbs and kept it off. Can you believe that I went from a size 12 to a size 2? Now I can dance around on my boat in my bikini!

Ron

Age: 45 Total Weight Lost: 160 lbs Surgery date: 2002-01-24 Presurgery BMI: 46 As a rescuer for 9/11 I found it difficult to maneuver around in the debris. I was not able to do much with my kids. After surgery, everything from walking, sleeping, and working became easier. At 6 months, I lost 80 lbs! Had I not had the surgery I would have had serious medical issues. Dr Garber and his staff were always very professional and caring. I have referred at least a half dozen people to Dr Garber and all my friends are doing excellent!

Age: 33 Total Weight Lost: 105 Surgery date: 2012-01-16 Presurgery BMI: 39 I was always an active kid but as an adult couldn't keep the weight down, even while staying active. I tried every and any diet, Weight Watchers etc., would lose some weight then put it right back on. Once i was educated on the procedure, it became a no brainer, especially since it would be covered by insurance. I no longer suffer from sleep apnea or high cholesterol and i feel so much better about myself!"

Surgery date: 2010-07-27 Presurgery BMI: 42 A business associate of mine had surgery with Dr. Garber and was very happy with him and with the results, so I decided to do it too. It was the best decision I ever made. I had been suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, extreme snoring and that all went away after the weight loss surgery. Now I’m running, swimming and working out

Age: 46 Total Weight Lost: 93 lbs. Surgery date: 2006-11-20 Presurgery BMI: 41 I would do it all over again if I had to! My ankles, knees and back would give out 10 minutes into any social function that I attended. I felt like I was 65. Now I feel and act like I’m in my 20’s! I had done every diet, attended weight loss camp, and saw many specialists. I researched all of the bariatric surgeons in New York. Once I decided to have the surgery, Dr. Spencer Holover gave me the rest of my life back. Walking by mirrors is pleasant again. The aftercare at New York Bariatric Group is phenomenal. Their relationship with you does not end after the surgery. Register and go to the free seminar. Its 4 years later and I still say, you have nothing to lose but the weight!

Before I had my surgery, my life was extremely unfulfilling. I was so uncomfortable with myself and my appearance I choose not to attend many functions and activities. I was unable to keep up with my children, my friends and my family. Performing everyday tasks such as laundry, emptying the dishwasher and even getting dressed became burdensome. My life now is so much more complete then before. I am able to do all of the things I had dreamed of. I can walk and climb stairs without getting winded, I can fit in an airplane and theater seat comfortably, and I am not in constant pain. Dr. Spencer Holover is not only a highly skilled surgeon; he is also a kind, caring and compassionate person. His calming and confident personality really helped put me at ease throughout the entire surgery process. There is only one word to describe the staff of New York Bariatric Group - AWESOME! Everyone in the entire group is knowledgeable, helpful, patient and extremely caring.

Total Weight Lost: 30 lbs Surgery date: 2016-03-03 Presurgery BMI: 34

Hearing about ReShape finally gave me hope and I’m so happy I went along with the procedure. I have struggled with my weight since the age of 16. In the past 14 years, I had tried everything to lose weight. I binged, skipped meals, used a waist trainer, tried popular diet programs, meal replacements — you name it. I did not qualify for any weight loss surgery because my BMI was at a 34.

On March 3, 2016, I began my weight loss journey with ReShape. After just six months, I have lost 30 pounds and my BMI is now at 28. I have lowered my cholesterol level, enhanced my endurance and physique, and promoted my health. ReShape has also empowered me to push forward to reach a BMI of 24.

I strongly recommend ReShape to everyone! I am overly satisfied and do not regret my decision in trusting the New York Bariatric Group. Thank you, ReShape!
