Sammanfattning

© 2018 Acta Chirurgica Scandinavica Society Introduction: There is limited knowledge about self-image in relation to excess skin after bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was therefore to explore self-image after massive weight loss and its relationship to gender, weight loss, discomfort regarding excess skin and health-related quality of life. Methods: Eighteen months after obesity surgery, 131 patients filled in questionnaires about self-image (Som jag ser mig själv), excess skin (Sahlgrenska Excess Skin Questionnaire, SESQ) and quality of life (EQ-5D and SF-36). In addition, maximal ptosis was measured on their abdomen, arms and thighs. Results: There were no differences in self-image or quality of life between the genders. Participants who scored low discomfort on SESQ had a significantly better overall self-image, in all subscales, compared to those with high discomfort scores (p < .05). They also had a significantly higher quality of life on the EQ-5D VAS (p = .045). Correlations were low, if any, between self-image, excess skin, quality of life and ptosis. There were moderate correlations between the SESQ score and the self-image subscore ‘physical well-being’, and in self-image and quality-of-life scores. Conclusions: Self-image is lower among those who experience a high degree of discomfort of excess skin after bariatric surgery. Its correlation to weight loss, measured excess skin and quality of life is weak.
