Support Groups

Dr. Higa believes that it is very important that you join a local support group even before you have surgery.  Weight loss surgery is a life-changing experience and it will be very good if you take part in a support group with other patients where you can share experiences, insights, and concerns. The goal is to adopt lifestyle changes, lose fat, gain muscle, and keep the weight off for good.
