Hello Amudha
Welcome to healthcare magic.
Bariatric surgery or liposuction for weight, loss is an extreme measure for pathologically obese people and is not without side effects.It is done in many corporate hospitals all over india,(you haven't mentioned your city).
But before taking such a drastic step it is advisable you consult a physician or endocrinologist for better methods of treatment .

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, you have not too weight to do surgury. so you should not go through surgical removal of fats. first you should rule out some medical cause of weight by getting blood test for thyroid hormon , sugur leval. if you find all normal then you should avoid fatty n spicy food. you should take protine riched diet. take antioxidant. start morning walk n work out in gym. dont skip breakfast. this trial helps in redusing your weight without surgury.
