Abstract

This thesis investigated the influence that psychological factors have on treatment success following weight loss surgery. I first examined the definition of treatment success; second, tested a range of preoperative psychological factors that may predict weight loss at longer term follow up, and third, tested whether a cognitive behavioural model provided a good account of weight regain in bariatric surgery patients. Results showed that poorer psychological well-being predicted lower levels of weight loss at short (i.e. 1 - 2 years) and longer (2 -8 years) term follow-ups, but that the effect was relatively small.
