An Innovative New Concept in Weight Loss Surgery Support

This week’s launch of an innovative new podcasting website, Weight Loss Surgery Success Radio, offers valuable support for people thinking about having or who have had weight loss surgery, gastric banding or obesity surgery. 

In Australia alone, there have been 49,000 operations for gastric surgery in the past 10 years. However, there has been a recent trend towards regaining weight post-surgery, says Kellee Waters, host and founder of Weight Loss Surgery Success Radio.

In the United States, bariatric surgeons are seeing a dramatic and increasing trend of people having repeat weight loss surgery procedures as they have gained significant weight after their first surgery. Weight Loss Surgery Success Radio has been developed to support, inform, encourage and motivate people in the short-term, ensuring their long-term success in keeping their weight off.

"We hope this can prevent the trend towards repeat surgery appearing here in Australia," Ms Waters said.

Ms Waters has struggled with her own weight issues, from childhood obesity to anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and yo-yo dieting. She understands the struggles and issues faced by her members on both a personal and professional level. She is a Psychologist, Hypnotherapist and Personal Trainer who has been working in weight management and weight loss surgery for five years.

“I noticed that there was a lot of information for weight loss surgery on the internet that was either delivered by professionals or forums driven by people who had had weight loss surgery or were thinking about it,” says Ms Waters. "However there was no resource that linked the people and professionals together. This website helps to bridge the gap between patients, professionals and information."

The content of the podcasts and website is driven by the needs of the members, making it a highly valuable and relevant resource. The members contribute their questions and the most up-to-date information and qualified professionals in the industry will be sought to answer the questions. Members also have the opportunity to tell their stories and be interviewed on the show.
