New York Bariatric Group Helps Patients Change Their Lives with Safe & Successful Bariatric Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY – Many obese adults struggle with the decision of whether or not to choose bariatric surgery as a solution to their weight and health problems. That’s why the New York Bariatric Group educates their prospective patients that choosing bariatric surgery is actually an extremely intelligent decision, and one which takes strength and character to make.

Nikki Massie, author of the Bariatric Foodie, raises an extremely important issue when she discusses how obesity is portrayed as a character defect, rather than a disease. In this light, choosing bariatric surgery is a sign that a person is too weak to succeed on their own, and that it’s a shameful or inappropriate decision.

This, of course, could not be farther from the truth. With the help of one of today’s leading types of bariatric surgery, patients can experience wonderful results which not only help them to lose excess weight and feel better about themselves, but actually change, improve and extend their lives.

The appropriate questions to ask one’s self are actually “Do I need surgery to help with my heart disease?” or “Do I need the surgery to beat this cancer?” Taken a step further, “Will bariatric surgery save my life?” or “Will I live to see my children grow up if I choose bariatric surgery?”

Choosing to undergo weight loss surgery is not a sign of inadequacy. It’s a decision to take real action to live a healthier and longer life. It’s the decision to utilize a proven, effective and safe tool to help accomplish an important goal.

At New York Bariatric Group, patients receive the assistance of highly experienced and skilled surgeons, who utilize the latest and most advanced technology and procedures. NYBG also offers patients a comprehensive support program which helps individuals make the transition smoothly and successfully, including mentorships, support groups, nutritional and lifestyle education, and more.

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

Brittany's success story

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
