Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have too much belly fat after pregnancy, and I am worried about it. I have been trying to do some exercise, but it is not very consistent, and hence, I am not working out properly. Will any surgery help this? Is it advisable to go for surgery straight away?

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com

I read your query and understand your concern.

Surgery is only advisable if obesity is morbid, as it can have many complications later. Losing weight is a tedious task that may take a long time, but persistence and motivation can be very useful. Take a strict diet and do daily exercise. You will see results in a month or two. Feel free to follow up. I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
