A New You: A Self Esteem Program for Bariatric Surgery Patients
The Metropolitan is proud to offer a one-of-a-kind program for people who are finding a new sense of self and well-being post Bariatric Surgery. This unique program offers support, education and empowerment to succeed in this amazing and life changing process.
Our team, which consists of our wellness coach and our expert salon and wardrobe stylists, will assist you in setting challenging but realistic goals in the areas of incorporating healthy life style changes and finding the new look that is better suited to a new you.
Coaching: Our wellness coach has had significant experience working with pre and post bariatric surgery patients. He feels that patients can benefit from on-going support to help ensure not only a successful transition to new behaviors, but to sustain them over a lifetime. Our coach will offer you education to help make healthy food choices, support via phone, e-mail and text to enhance motivation and face-to-face coaching to deal with mood and life changes. We recommend coaching for the first year after surgery to help deal with the inevitable plateaus and ups and downs of dramatic weight loss.
“Providing education on nutrition, exercise and meal planning is crucial to developing long-term behavior change and healthy lifestyle habits.” James Stolz, Wellness Coach
Stylists: Our experts on skin, hair and beauty will help you make decisions to find what the new you looks like today, not the negative picture of yourself that people with weight and body image issues carry in their head. We specialize in hair restoration techniques utilizing Nioxin to help with hair growth and help to prevent and mitigate the hair loss commonly associated with the early months after Bariatric surgery.
“For twenty years, NIOXIN® has been developing advanced technologies for products that help optimize the scalp skin environment resulting in youthful, healthy-looking hair. Each System is designed to maximize your individual potential. NIOXIN® offers a range of innovative products that focus on the scalp to improve the appearance of thinning hair.” (Nioxin)
We also help with the difficult and sometimes overwhelming process of developing a new wardrobe that better suits the new you. Many people struggle after surgery with the variety of choices now afforded to them and their new body. While exciting, it can also be a cause for anxiety due to years of dealing with the negative response our society has to people who struggle with weight. Our wardrobe consultant can walk you through developing a new style by showing you what looks good on your body, clearing your closet of old and outdated items and showing you how to shop for the perfect look for the perfect you.
