This is a fat story of ten years. A grand ten years of fat accumulation. I was normal weight and very healthy. Due to the change of lifestyle (mine is a 10 hrs table work job), I started to put on weight. Though I ignored at the beginning, I could not when fat started to lay in abdomen and thigh part. I started to worry a lot when my chests started to look like breasts.
Then started exercises and diets. Though I was very much successful in losing 15 kgs (From 100 to 85) in two months of heavy workout and diet. I failed constantly in keeping myself active. The diet and exercise make us thin, if followed regularly and properly.
I was reaching 40, and one of my cousins died just because of obesity (He was 150 + KGS). The sad demise left me thinking seriously about weight loss and I was nearing 100 KGS.
I started to think of non exercise and one time solution for fat reducing. I have read and watched lots of stuffs about both the Bariatric surgery and liposuction.
Apart from overweight, I was totally healthy. No BP, no Sugar, no medical complications. I was not admitted to the hospital even once in my life. I thought, should I go for these surgeries?
My wife and I thought very much. One sentence of my wife made me to decide over the surgery. She said, If we do not act today, in coming years we have to pay more and hospitalised for other ailments related to obesity.
I chose liposuction over bariatric because in the lipo surgery no inner organs of my body are touched. Which is not in the case of bariatric.
I found the details of Chennai Plastic Surgery over the net and I met Dr. Karthik in 2015 at Apollo, Bangalore. I personally oppose to get admitted in bigger hospitals where doctors behave like aliens and remain never reachable to the patients.
I prefer small hospitals where I can directly speak to the doctors and get the full information about what is happening.
So, I went to Apollo to just to gather information not to get treated there. But when I met Dr. Karthik Ram, I made my mind that he is my lipo surgeon.
It is true that, he is a friendly and soft spoken person. But what made to make my mind about surgery is his genuine explanations about liposuction. He attentively listened to me, answered all my questions and finally he educated me about the limitations of liposuction. He clearly said, “it is not a weight loss surgery, it helps a lot in weight loss”.
Convinced by his unfeigned and genuine advice, I decided to undergo the surgery.
But there was an another hurdle. The money! The cost of surgery was over 2 Lakh Rs and I was a middle class common man.
I started to save money for liposuction and finally in December 2017, I flew to Chennai and got operated! Thanks to the Doctor, the charges were same as it was quoted in 2015.
The experience in hospital was awesome! Yes, you read me correctly, it was awesome. Everyone starting from the attenders sisters to coordinators and doctors everyone in Chennai Plastic surgery are wonderful human beings.
I fail in my duty if I won’t thank two mother hearted women, the sister (Unfortunately I forget her name) and Ms. Sunitha, who took great care just like my mother.
Coming to the post surgery care, the doctor and Ms. Sunitha was reachable through whatsapp. Both would reply without fail to every question.
I was weighing 99 KGs the day I was operated and after three months, today, I am weighing 85 KGs. Yes still there is a long way to go. I need to reduce another 15 to 18 KGs of weight through proper diet and exercise which I am following strictly so far.
I thank Doctor Karthik, his team for making my body thin and my faith in doctors thick.
Yogish Deshpande A clinic with great human beings.
