Introduction
As a result of the growing number of people with obesity, the popularity of bariatric surgery has been systematically increasing. It has not yet been explored whether individual education of the patient can contribute to long-term success in weight reduction after bariatric treatment.

Aim
To implement and compare the effects of different education methods, versus receiving one-time written information in the form of a guidebook, on patient involvement in abiding by lifestyle recommendations after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) bariatric treatment.

Material and methods
The study included 160 patients with morbid obesity. The education session study participants were 100 patients after sleeve gastrectomy, with whom three education sessions were planned, and who were enrolled in the study. The control group consisted of 60 patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy, and before discharge from the department, they received one-time written recommendations in the form of a guidebook.

Results
We confirmed that the three education sessions we conducted with the study group after LSG had a significant impact on weight loss. The control group, which received only written information, achieved weight loss and abided by the written recommendations, although to a lesser extent than the study group. The differences were evident particularly in motivation to adhere to recommendations and check-ups, which was significantly lower (p < 0.001) after a year of observation in the control group.

Conclusions
This study results should encourage the establishment of education as a permanent element of the LSG procedure.
