Washington: A new research has revealed that bariatric surgery could prove useful in improving female sexual dysfunction (FSD) apart from helping people lose weight.As many as 54 sexually active women, with an average body mass index (BMI) of 45, were studied before and after having either laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) or Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.
"Sexual functioning appears to improve quickly and dramatically after bariatric surgery and it doesn`t seem to matter if a patient undergoes gastric bypass or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding," said Dale Bond, assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. "Clearly significant weight loss plays a role, but further research is needed to determine the extent to which improvements in body image, obesity-related diseases, hormonal mechanisms, and emotional health contribute to better sexual functioning," Bond added.This study was presented at the 27th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
