Mike Sonko's daughter Saumu Mbuvi hints at undergoing surgery for weight loss
Saumu said she missed her tiny body and would love to get back to it
In a question-and-answer session on her Instagram stories, Saumu said she wished she could go back to a smaller body, something that would now require a cosmetic procedure.
“Hey beautiful what’s your current weight,” a curious follower asked.
Saumu responded: “Of late I don’t know but I’m really considering doing a gastric bypass soon. I miss being tiny or should I wait for the new body I will be given in heaven."
A gastric bypass is a type of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine.
After gastric bypass, swallowed food will go into this small pouch of stomach and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.
Kenyan celebrities who have undergone gastric bypass
Several high-profile persons have undergone weight loss surgeries among them Los Angeles Counsel General Big Ted who underwent gastric bypass surgery in India before he vowed to shed weight to a healthier 90kg.

Raburu said that he decided to go for the surgery after many attempts of trying to work with fitness trainers didn't work.
