Kelvin Kinuthia, the crossdressing TikTok sensation has shared his experience thus far following his gastric balloon procedure.
Speaking in an interview, the content creator said before the procedure he weighed 138.6kg and barely a month after the procedure he now weighs 129kg.
“They’re taking it okay, my mum was actually complaining that I was adding a lot of weight because all I did was eat before I went through the procedure,” said Kinuthia.
Kinuthia responded that he lacks the discipline to be consistent with gym workouts when asked why he did not choose them instead of other forms of exercise.
“I cannot manage to stay consistent in the gym. The only workout I can bear is dancing on TikTok. My body burns calories well so TikTok dances are enough.”
Kinuthia revealed that he spent Sh450,000 on the procedure which goes for a period of 4 months and went on to share details of how it was done.
“It’s a small tablet you swallow and when it gets to your stomach, they do an X-ray then start filling the tablet with a fluid. They fill through a pipe which sticks out your mouth.”
“I’m staying with it for 4 months and then I’m done. I’m aiming to lose about 30kgs by the end of 4 months. I spent Sh450,000,” he said.
