Surgery-related outcomes of bariatric procedures do not depend on only weight loss, but also resolution of comorbidities and improvement of quality of life (QOL) are of great importance. Severe obesity is associated with decreased quality of life. Therefore, bariatric surgery improves the quality of life. In this regard, there are many tools to assess the quality of life, one of which is the Bariatric Analysis and Reporting Outcome System Score (BAROS) containing of self-esteem, physical activity, social activity, work sexual activity, and food items. Most surgeons consider the success rate of bariatric surgery in respect of weight loss and improvement of comorbidities. However, an important factor that should not be forgotten is patients' satisfaction and QOL, which can be assessed with BAROS score. The BAROS score divided into five groups (-3 to -2.1: very poor, -2 t0 -1.1: poor, -1 to 1: fair, 1.1 to 2: good, and 2.1 to 3: very good). Assessing the patient's satisfaction and QOL following bariatric and metabolic surgeries is strongly recommended.
