Methods: One hundred and forty-two persons who had undergone bariatric surgery answered an online survey which included measures of well-being and body image. The Multidimensional Body Self-Relations Questionnaire-Appearance Scales (MBSRQ-AS 34) was used to assess body image in relation to appearance evaluation (AE), appearance orientation (AO), overweight preoccupation (OP), self-classified weight (SCW), and body areas satisfaction (BASS). Obesity-related quality of life was assessed with the obesity related well-being scale (Orwell 97).
Results: Hierarchical multiple regression indicated that 50.2% of the variance in well-being post-surgery was explained by body image variables [F(6,84) =18.54, P},
