Bariatric Support Programs

From the moment you decide to move forward with one of our programs, our support services begin. You will have the opportunity to connect with patients who are just starting their bariatric journey, as well as those who have been in the program for several months. Additionally, you will meet individuals who have undergone surgery and are actively working to maintain their new, healthier lifestyle. Our programs provide encouragement, inspiration and most importantly, unwavering support throughout the entire process.

We want you to have all the tools for success and that’s why our comprehensive program offers these ongoing benefits to you:

  • Pre- and post-op support groups to share your challenges, triumphs and useful tips.
  • Nutritional and psychological counseling to help you learn new habits and set you up for a lifetime of success.
  • Exercise programs that are sustainable, enjoyable and tailored to you.
  • Monthly peer support groups for ongoing support and accountability.
  • Annual graduation ceremony to celebrate your accomplishments and how far you’ve come.

Weight loss is
a team sport

Join our private Facebook community.


We also offer a private Facebook community for patients in various stages of their weight loss journey. Connect with people overcoming the same fears and challenges you have faced. Find a supportive community that will cheer you on as you reach your goals together. The group is a positive, safe, educational space where staff members of Southwest General's Center for Bariatric Surgery answer questions, offer support and share information.

Anytime I had a question, I could send an email or a phone call, and if I had to leave a message, they got back to me right away. I just felt like there was always somebody there that was available. - STEPHANIE, Lost 85 pounds
