In 2016, 10-year-old Indonesian boy Arya Permana became famous all over the world because he weighed almost 200 kg and was named the fattest child in the world
From birth, the boy had a good appetite and always ate more than ordinary children. However, up to 8 years old he was just a strong man, but after 8 years something happened to his body and he began to eat much more than any norm.
By the age of 10, he ate 5 times a day and ate enough food each time that he could feed 2-3 adults to his fill.
His parents tried to limit Arya in food, but then the boy threw tantrums that it was impossible to withstand for a long time. Only when the boy could barely walk, could not attend school and spent all the time lying on the floor or sofa, it became clear that drastic measures were needed here.
The doctors managed to persuade Arya's parents to perform an operation to cut his stomach (stomach sleeve). During this operation, most of the stomach is simply cut off, only very little remains, so a person is saturated very quickly, literally after a few spoons.
The boy underwent this operation relatively well, but then he became severely depressed, because he could no longer absorb the food he loved, but was forced to sit on a special diet.
Parents and many people around him supported Arya, they also found a coach who introduced him to boxing and Arya is now seriously interested in this sport. He also fell in love with swimming and football. His stress was gradually disappearing.
He did not lose kilograms as quickly as he wanted, but nevertheless, in four years after the operation, the boy lost up to 83 kg. He could weigh even less, but the heavy sagging skin on his arms, legs, chest and stomach cannot be eliminated by diet and even physical exercises (which Arya is now actively engaged in), plastic surgery is needed here.
Arya is already preparing for this operation. Doctors examined him and noted those areas of the body from which excess skin would need to be removed.
