z100’s Mo’ Bounce had weight loss surgery with Dr Shawn Garber on January 16, 2012. In less than 3 months he has lost 50lbs! Mo’ said, “It’s amazing to have lost 50lbs so quickly! I lost 30lbs in the first month alone but have been losing 8-10lbs steadily since then. Dr Garber says I’m right where I should be and I feel like a new man. I didn’t think it was possible to feel this way.” Mo’ is down from 270lbs to 220lbs.

He said, “The first thing I noticed was my energy change. I have so much energy now that I’m thinner! I wake up earlier, I don’t feel any fatigue, I don’t even drink coffee or red bull anymore! This experience has been amazing. The only negative is buying new clothes can be expensive but, it’s a problem worth having! It all works out because I’m spending less money on food so I can spend more on new clothes. I’m down 2 sizes in my shirt and 3 pant sizes!”

When asked if he would recommend us to a friend Mo’ replied, “Absolutely! And I have! I am very open about my weight loss surgery and I answer questions about it all the time on my facebook and twitter accounts. I have also personally recommended a few friends who were interested. The whole process was very easy and seamless for me. I didn’t feel any pain. I have been very conscious of my food choices as well. I don’t eat bread, rice or fried food; I simply don’t crave those foods anymore. I work out more because I’m not winded. The compliments I receive have made me more confident and therefore have given me more reason to want to lose ever more weight. Surgery is NOT the easy way out, it doesn’t change your brain but seeing the weight loss really encourages you. Dr Garber’s office continuing support has also helped me greatly. I’ve seen Dr Garber once a month since my surgery and every time I see him he’s very supportive and he always gives wonderful tips.”

Virtually Scarless Single Incision Sleeve Gastrectomy offered at the New York Bariatric Group

The New York Bariatric Group is proud to be among the first and only surgeons in the area that now offer Virtually Scarless Single Incision Sleeve Gastrectomy.  SILS Is an advanced minimally invasive approach in which the surgeon operates exclusively via a single entry point through the “belly button”  Single incision sleeve gastrectomy surgery patients have less pain and little or no scarring. The cosmetic results are amazing! Laparoscopic gastric sleeve resection is a newer procedure in which about 75 to 80 percent of the volume of the stomach is removed, while maintaining the natural openings into and out of the stomach. This procedure is simpler to perform than gastric bypass resulting in lower complication rates than gastric bypass.  Because we are not changing the gastrointestinal track it decreases the chances of complications like vitamin deficiencies that occur with gastric bypass surgery. Patients can lose weight similar to gastric bypass surgery over a pretty rapid time and help to resolve medical problems such as Type II Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, Hypertension and Heart Disease.Now that we offer this procedure through a single incision it results in improved cosmesis and a quicker recovery.  Patients usually spend only one night in the hospital.

Contact our office at 888-8-LAPBAND and ask your surgeon if you qualify for the new virtually scarless SILS sleeve gastrectomy.

Nicole's success story

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.

Samantha's success story

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.
