TikTok sensation and cross-dresser Kelvin Kinuthia has shared his experience with a gastric balloon procedure, revealing that he has lost 7kg in just two months. Before the procedure, Kinuthia weighed 138kg and after swallowing the balloon in November, he now weighs 131kg. The balloon will be removed in February.
Kinuthia explained that he chose the procedure because he struggled with discipline when it came to other workout plans. Despite the cost of 450k, he would do it again and even hire a personal trainer for extra support. However, he does miss certain foods, such as soda, that he had to avoid during the procedure.
The content creator also shared some of the challenges he faced, including morning sickness and difficulty waking up. He credited his mother for encouraging him to undergo the procedure, saying she was concerned about his weight.
Kinuthia is not alone in his weight loss journey, as several Kenyan celebrities have also undergone the gastric balloon procedure, including Kate Actress, Willis Raburu, and Jackie Matubia.
