Weight Loss Support Groups

At the New York Bariatric Group, we give our patients all the support we can. We offer a host of support groups to give a sense of solidarity to those undergoing a bariatric transformation. This can help patients with their lifestyle changes and discipline, along with their general knowledge that others are having the same experience.

Importance of support groups

Bariatric surgery is a tool to help you in the journey of weight loss. It is not a complete solution that will cure obesity alone. In order to achieve lasting success, lifestyle changes must be made that complement the weight loss surgery or weight loss balloon that you have. One of the best ways to become more educated, feel the support of a community, and get advice from others is to take advantage of the bariatric surgery support groups that New York Bariatric Group offers.

In-person support groups

Involvement in bariatric surgery support groups can significantly increase your chances of success. Being able to lean on the experience and assistance of other patients just like you, who understand what it’s like post-bariatric surgery and are going through the same trials, is an incredible opportunity. Our bariatric surgery support groups are wonderful tools that our patients have enjoyed for years. Our in-person bariatric surgery support groups are held on Long Island, Manhattan, and Westchester.

Online support groups

We know that with today’s busy schedules, many patients are not able to make it to an in-person support group. We offer online video chat support groups, as well as forums, which are fun, informative and easily accessible 24/7. The thousands of other members in these groups and forums will make you feel like you’re part of the family. You’ll meet people there who have had the same procedure as you, and can share tips and struggles they’ve encountered. You’ll have the chance to share your own questions and advice too. If you have not already registered on our website, you will be asked to sign up before you can join the online group. It only takes about 2 minutes to complete the process and is well worth it.

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!"

"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."

"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"
