Weight loss ops linked to break-ups

Weight loss ops linked to break-ups

The authors of the new study acknowledged that while weight-loss surgery "may affect the dynamics of the relationship", assigning blame for breakups would be a more hard task.

But Swedish researchers say it is not all doom and gloom because new relationships are more likely to be forged because of the weight loss that follows surgery.

In the other study, singles were more likely to form new relationships or marry after a weight-loss operation. However, they also found higher rates of marriage and new relationships among those who were not previously in a relationship. But for those already in a relationship, bariatric surgery was associated with an increased rate of divorce or separation.

Bariatric surgery, such as gastric bands and bypasses to make the stomach smaller and limit how much can be eaten, leads to dramatic weight loss - often half a patient's excess weight - and cuts the risk of heart attack and diabetic complications.

Bariatric surgery is suggested for peole with extreme or terrible corpulence and it has been appeared to prompt exceptionally considerable weight loss, which enables peole to restart their lives.

The researchers point out that the observational nature of their study means that they can not prove cause and effect.




Most weight-loss surgery patients and their partners report that the quality of their committed relationships stays steady or improves, the authors noted. "Maybe the partners of those patients felt less connected to the "new person" that they were married to".

The research can't establish a direct cause-and-effect relationship.

"Many patients have told me that bariatric surgery was the best decision they've ever made, and they really do have a new outlook on life".

But, Funk cautioned, health care professionals need to discuss the potential impact of bariatric surgery on their patients' relationships with others.

At 10 years out, 35 percent in the surgery group had married or kindled a new romance, compared with 19 percent of those in the comparison group.
