At the New York Bariatric Group we understand that weight loss surgery is only the beginning. What comes next is all the difficult work of changing a lifetime of habits and ways of living and thinking about yourself and your place in the world. Very few people understand what this process is like. It seems easy. Just have the bariatric surgery and lose all the weight. Voila! You are a changed person. As you know, there’s a lot more to this process than that, and the correct mental approach and support is one of the most important bariatric surgery requirements to ensure a smooth and successful experience.
