Self Image and Acceptance following Bariatric Surgery

Who is looking back at you in the mirror? Although weight-loss success can be exciting, your body is constantly changing – and so is your self-view. Sometimes it can be difficult to look beyond your physical changes and see the person who lies underneath.

Renowned psychologists Paul B. Davidson, PhD; and Rachel Goldman, PhD, FTOS, explain why this happens and help you navigate emotional changes after bariatric surgery.
