Bariatric Surgery Patient Support Groups
All medical professionals involved in the surgical treatment of clinical obesity agree on at least one thing about successful bariatric surgery: weight loss is easier and faster when patients can access personal help through local or online support groups.
Local Bariatric Post-Operative Support Groups
As well as providing dietary, nutritional and exercise counseling after obesity surgery, all reputable or accredited surgical facilities that perform bariatric operations have a post-operative support system, which should include supervised support groups. Check with your weight loss surgeon before your operation and make certain there is support available.
Online Bariatric Support Groups
Online help groups like forums, which can offer post-operative counseling and mutual support for patients unable to join local support-groups, are less common. That said, a number of bariatric or plastic surgeons do offer this type of online support facility. A useful website that provides this type of online patient support is ObesityHelp.com
