Weight loss surgery may bring romance back in relationships: Study
Mary Lisa Pories of East Carolina University in the US studied couples after one of the partners underwent weight loss surgery.

Washington: Weight loss surgery can not only make you look fit, it may also lead to greater intimacy with your partner and improved sex life, according to a new study.

Mary Lisa Pories of East Carolina University in the US studied couples after one of the partners underwent weight loss surgery.

The research team interviewed ten couples and found that all of the patients and their significant others viewed the surgery, and subsequent adjustments that needed to be made, as part of a team effort.

They all described ways in which the partners supported and helped the patients care for themselves, including assistance with staying on track with the new routine.

"All of the couples felt their post-operative success was due to a joint effort on the part of both members of the couple," said Pories.

On an emotional level, the couples reported more positive moods and better self-esteem.

They also reported sharing greater intimacy and affection, and being better able to resolve conflict. Their sexual relationships also improved and, in many cases, became more enjoyable.

Couples also highlighted the adjustment that was needed to adapt to their partners' significant weight loss. The couples also had more energy, and needed to adjust to new eating habits.

Pories believes that a better understanding of how bariatric surgery impacts the dynamics of a couple's relationship could help physicians, nurses and social workers to support patients and their partners more effectively.

The findings are published in Springer's journal Obesity Surgery.
