Objective: This study was conducted to analyze if bariatric surgery interventions can induce changes in quality of life (QoL) perception of obese people and to compare the outcomes of two different kinds of bariatric surgery interventions. Methods: A before–after study on a cohort of obese patients who were subjected to bariatric surgery in the years 2013–2015 was conducted. QoL using the Laval Questionnaire, a tool specifically created for the evaluation of QoL on obese people waiting for surgery, was assessed. Results: One hundred sixty subjects were enrolled in the final sample (62 for gastric bypass vs. 98 for adjustable gastric banding [GB]). Incremental improvements in QoL have occurred in the third month after surgery, with a contextual progressive weight loss. Subjects who underwent gastric bypass experienced greater improvements in QoL and a more important weight loss than patients who were subjected to adjustable GB. Conclusions: After 12 months, general QoL shows an improvement and an important weight loss occurs in many patients; hopefully, these results will be sustained in a longer period. Bariatric surgery could be an important solution for the improvement of QoL in obese people.

Abstract

Objective: This study was conducted to analyze if bariatric surgery interventions can induce changes in quality of life (QoL) perception of obese people and to compare the outcomes of two different kinds of bariatric surgery interventions. Methods: A before–after study on a cohort of obese patients who were subjected to bariatric surgery in the years 2013–2015 was conducted. QoL using the Laval Questionnaire, a tool specifically created for the evaluation of QoL on obese people waiting for surgery, was assessed. Results: One hundred sixty subjects were enrolled in the final sample (62 for gastric bypass vs. 98 for adjustable gastric banding [GB]). Incremental improvements in QoL have occurred in the third month after surgery, with a contextual progressive weight loss. Subjects who underwent gastric bypass experienced greater improvements in QoL and a more important weight loss than patients who were subjected to adjustable GB. Conclusions: After 12 months, general QoL shows an improvement and an important weight loss occurs in many patients; hopefully, these results will be sustained in a longer period. Bariatric surgery could be an important solution for the improvement of QoL in obese people.
