I went to Turkey and paid £2.6K for a gastric sleeve – but it isn’t my new body people always comment on | The Sun

A WOMAN who flew all the way to Turkey to get a gastric sleeve has revealed it’s not her new body that people comment on the most. 

Kennedy Pearse tried everything to lose weight but found it kept going up and down instead of a steady decrease on the scales. 

At her heaviest, the brunette beauty said she was 17 stone. And eventually, she decided to take the plunge and get gastric sleeve surgery to tackle her weight. 

Sharing a clip of her transformation with before and after photos and videos, she told viewers to “watch my life completely change in a year”. 

The video started with her dressed in a matching black lingerie set with her mane tied up into a bun. Another scene saw her lift her arms up before moving to the side to show off her profile. 

She could then be seen in a hospital before slowly seeing the pounds drop from her waist and body.

TikTok user @kennedypearse was then seen looking incredible in a skin tight dress – looking healthier than ever. 

In a second video, Kennedy showed what she looked like on the day of her surgery in Turkey before returning to the present, where she lip synced: “Wow, I look so weird here. My face has changed now.”

People were quick to comment on her transformation as many couldn’t help but agree with how much her face in particular changed.

“Ok but tell us what you did to your face cuz damn this is the type of glow up I’m waiting for in my life,” [sic] one person wrote.

Another said: “You have the most beautiful face,” with a heart eyes emoji.

A third shared: “Girl your skin did wonders!!!” while a fourth added: “Well done hun. This is amazing!! I’m looking into it, and vids like yours are just inspiring! Xx”. [sic] 

Some, on the other hand, couldn’t help but ask some questions around the surgery as one person quizzed: “How much did it cost if you don’t mind me asking x”. 

Kennedy responded: “2600 roughly without flights z”. [sic] 

Another questioned: “Absolutely amazing can I ask how was recovery after surgery x,” to which she responded: “I did struggle a lot after surgery, but after about a month things definitely got better xx”. 

“Did you do anything extra to avoid loose skin? You look amazing,” a third enquired as Kennedy replied: “I went straight back to the gym after about 2 months I think that has definitely helped x”. 

While a fourth asked: “Did you have it in Turkey? Surely you weren’t big enough to get it on nhs?” [sic]

She replied: “I was nearly 17 stone when I had surgery, those first 2 videos x”. 

According to the NHS, weight loss surgery can “help improve many obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure”. 

However, they warn that it is a “major operation and in most cases should only be considered after trying to lose weight through a healthy diet and exercise”.

And the decision shouldn’t be taken lightly as there is risk of complications, including: excess skin, not getting enough vitamins and minerals from your diet, gallstones, blood clot in the leg or lungs, and “gastric band slipping out of place”. 

“Before having surgery, speak to your surgeon about the possible benefits and risks of the procedure,” the NHS adds.
