Sexual functioning is an important, yet often overlooked, aspect of life quality for many individuals with obesity, especially regarding to man. Fertility and sperm quality are even less explored in the scientific literature. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report of man being a father after bariatric surgery. Here, we report a four men recruited from a prospective cohort of individuals, from both gender, who underwent bariatric surgery in the past three years. The total sample was 192 (146 women: 76.0% and 46 men: 24.0%). From the 46 men, 4 (8.7%) became father of six normal offspring. The ages of the men were respectively: 34; 38; 41; and 43 years of age. These patients were married. The post-bariatric surgery pregnancies, from the same spouses before surgical procedures, were without any abnormalities and the newborns presented no congenital anomalies. These individuals referred increased sexual desire after surgery and improvement of erectile function. This case series reported highlights the contribution of bariatric surgery in the sexuality, fertility and fatherhood of obese man.
