Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, an Egyptian woman who is the world's heaviest person, has underwent a successful weight-reduction surgery in India and is now on course towards losing tens of kilos over the next few days.
Asked about the effect of so much weight loss on her body and muscles, he said, "We are well aware of impact on the body of a patient when a lot of weight is reduced in a short period of time".
"We are happy to inform all well-wishers that the medical team of Saifee Hospital has successfully performed the surgery on Eman Ahmed", the hospital said a statement.
Prior to her surgery, she has lost over 120 kg within a month after coming to Mumbai for the treatment.
Her family told the doctor that as a child she was diagnosed with elephantiasis, a condition that causes the limbs and other body parts to swell, leaving her nearly immobile.
Over the last few years, Ahmed had been confined to her bed after a stroke severely impaired her speech and mobility.
The next surgery will be next year, Lakdawala told CNN.

On the negative side, after more than two years of flat dividends, GE increased its dividend by only a cent to $0.23 per share. Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE:EMR) Industrial Electrical Equipment has a Current Ratio of 2.1 with a Quick Ratio value of 1.8.
On her arrival, Ms Ahmed's body mass index was 252-ten times the normal limit and water accounted to up to 15 stone of her total weight.
Lakdawala first heard about El Aty's condition after her sister reached out for help through social media. Pictures taken of her before and after the surgery shows a huge difference.
The venture was fraught with difficulties from the start.
Next came the logistics of getting Eman on a flight.
She was then flown last month on a plane especially modified with safety gear, like a portable ventilator and defibrillator, to Saifee Hospital in India.
But despite the hardships and roadblocks, for the Ahmed family, the opportunity for the 36-year-old to travel to India and have the surgery was a ray of light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
Abd El Aty had a long wait as no airlines were willing to fly her due to her health complications.
