Happy with result

After the birth of my first child, I started putting on a lot of weight. I immediately joined a gym and started dieting too, but the weight was not going down. To my utter dismay, even after 3 months of dieting and exercise, the weight still remained the same. One day, while working at my office, I happened to chance upon the Allure Medspa website. I went through the articles at the website and thought of calling to enquire about the weight loss procedure. I called the clinic and came to know about the various weight loss surgeries. The staff arranged for a consultation with Dr. Milan Doshi. His choice of words and his friendly nature gave me the confidence to go ahead with the surgery. They asked me to put forward a mail along with some photographs where I want to undergo the surgery. My problem area is my tummy. It has bulged out over the years. I am just not able to wear normal clothes. In a week\'s time they fixed for a Intragastric balloon surgery and gave me the quotation for the cost and everything. I found the prices quite affordable and made the tickets to visit India for the surgery.

The surgery took an hour and the process uses a balloon that is being inserted in the stomach. There is no risk involved with the surgery. The surgeon even asked me to follow proper diet and light exercise after the surgery is done. Slowly, I started losing the extra weight and in a course of six months I almost toned down. After a period of six months , I paid a visit again to Dr. Doshi to remove the balloon that is being inserted. I must admit I am very happy with the result. I no longer have to worry about wearing my favorite clothes now.
