The physical change that accompanies bariatric surgery is just one part of a successful approach to surgical weight loss. The patients who see the best results go through a mental change as well. Bariatric surgery patients must develop a whole new relationship with food and find ways to overcome the other emotional hurdles that have blocked past attempts at weight loss.
