Surgical Weight Loss Support Groups

Weight loss support groups are an intricate part of your recovery from surgery and long-term weight loss maintenance. Weight loss support groups are forums that provide education, motivation, and can provide valuable input pre-operatively as well as post-operatively.

Weight loss support groups are conducted at various times, days and locations. An experienced health professional, physician and successful surgical weight loss patients put on the meetings. Support groups are hosted in a variety of ways. Many weight loss support groups provide speakers who discuss issues of interest while others lead their own educational speaking engagements or have group discussions. The support groups are for those that are doing well with their surgical procedure, those investigating surgery and those that may be struggling with their program.

Some weight loss support groups are held in the community setting and other support groups are provided by your surgeon. You are encouraged to get such information from his office.
