Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to investigate the body awareness and the factors affecting the bariatric surgery.

Condition or disease
Bariatric Surgery Body Image

Detailed Description:

In the treatment of obesity, bariatric surgery allows for significant and permanent weight loss and is the most effective treatment. Although the effect of changing body image on occupational and social experiences in patients undergoing bariatric surgery has been examined, there is not enough information about the body awareness and the factors affecting these patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the body awareness and the factors affecting the bariatric surgery.

In this study, body composition (with body analyzer), body awareness (with Body Awareness Questionnaire), physical activity level (with International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form), joint position feeling (with photography method), quality of life (with Short Form-36), depression status (with Beck Depression Inventory) and cognition (with Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test) of all participants will be evaluated when they come routine doctor control.
