This research was performed with the goal to identify the process of   rehabilitation period on the changes of body image quality of life.

Methods: In this descriptive –analytical research, 51 patient’s body image quality of life was reviewed in four time period (before, during, ending, and one month after the rehabilitation). Patients were selected based on available sampling. The tools of two parts questionnaire information collection include demographic information and Body Image Quality of Life questionnaire (BIQLI). The obtained information was analyzed using descriptive statistics and repeated measures ANOVA.

Results: In this research a statistically significant relationship was found between time and changes of body image quality of life and also between education level and body image quality of life (P less than 0/001). But no statistically significant relationship was found between age, sex, marital status, job, history of cigarette and opium consumption, history of underlying diseases and body mass index with body image quality of life.

Conclusion: Due to the body image quality of life promotion in patients at the end of rehabilitation period, it is recommended that all heart surgery centers include implementation of rehabilitation programs and moderate of risk factors at the head of precautionary policies
