Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, the 500 kg Egyptian women has had a successful weight reduction surgery.

Doctors aim to reduce her weight by a total of 31-and-a-half stone so she can fit on the operating table.

According to the team of doctors, Egyptian women weight had been brought under 400 kilograms since she arrived in Mumbai in early February.

"She is battling with her life every single day", Lakdawala told CNN a year ago.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the incidence of bariatric surgery has plateaued at approximately 113,000 cases every year.

Eman Ahmed was reputed to be the heaviest person in the world at 500kg or 1,102 pounds of body weight. Eman has suffered from different medical conditions throughout her entire life, after she was diagnosed with elephantiasis when she was a child.

Lakdawala in Delhi responded and offered to help reduce Eman's weight. The video, taken on Thursday (two days after the surgery), is proof that she's inching closer to that dream.

The venture was fraught with difficulties from the start. She had flown to Mumbai in a specially modified Airbus last month for treatment. First, her visa request was denied, and she was only granted passage after the direct intervention of India's foreign minister.

Eman had issues getting to India, as well.

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.

Eman's sister approached doctors in India in October 2016 stating that Abd El Aty needed urgent medical attention.
