Introduction: Obesity is steadily growing around the world and is one of the most important threats to human health in the 21st century. It not only increases the incidence of obesity-related disorders, but also impairs the health-related quality of life (QOL). This study aimed to evaluate the health-related QOL in severely obese women after bariatric surgery. Materials and Methods: A total of 476 patients, aged ≥18 years, attending Tehran Obesity Treatment Center, were enrolled in this study. Anthropometric and biochemical information of the participants was obtained before and one year after surgery. Health-related QOL was assessed using the Iranian version of the Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36). Results: The mean age of the patients undergoing bariatric surgery was 38.7±10.9 years. The body mass index (BMI) before bariatric surgery was 45.1±6.0 kg/m2, which decreased to 30.2±4.8 kg/m2 after one year of follow-up (P<0.001). The mean scores of anthropometric and metabolic indices improved one year after bariatric surgery. The mean score of the physical dimension of QOL improved from 227.6±54.3 to 316.6±63.2, and the mean score of the mental dimension also increased from 236.7±70.9 to 288.6±62.9 (P<0.001). The overall mean scores of QOL in the physical and psychological dimensions were not significantly different after one year of follow-up in the two groups of sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass. Conclusion: QOL greatly improved at one year after bariatric surgery. The improvements were comparable after sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
