Success Stories

Hector Lost 147 Lbs.*

By New Jersey Bariatric Center Staff


I had been overweight and trying to lose weight for 20 years. I tried these diet pills back in Ecuador but all they ended up doing was making me sick. When I started having trouble breathing, I knew it was time for a solution that worked. My health was declining and I needed to make a change.

Surgery was everything for me. It not only helped me lose the weight I needed to but also made me healthier overall. I’m not able to eat as much as I was able to before and it taught me portion control. Every single day I weigh my food and do everything I can to stay on track. My success with losing the weight and keeping it off for 2 years is because of the guidelines given to me by my surgeon and my dietitian at New Jersey Bariatric Center. This is the best staff I could’ve asked for and I would tell anyone considering weight loss surgery that with New Jersey Bariatric Center, you are in the best hands.

I am so thankful for Dr. Buwen and the team who helped me. Their advice and support has helped me stay successful and achieve my weight loss goals. I am no longer experiencing shortness of breath or having any trouble breathing. I feel amazing. When I look in the mirror and see pictures of myself now I am so much happier.My friends and family are constantly complimenting me and it makes me feel so proud. I am so thankful for my health.
