Kelvin Kinuthia: I spent Sh450,000 on gastric balloon procedure

Crossdressing TikTok sensation Kelvin Kinuthia 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.

When asked why he did not opt for gym workouts instead, Kinuthia said he does not have the discipline to be consistent with gym workouts. 

“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.

In another previous interview with Mungai Eve, Kinuthia disclosed that he decided to go through with a weight loss procedure because he started feeling a little heavier than normal. 

“I started feeling heavy and uncomfortable so I knew I needed to do something about it.”
