The problems of girls are numerous but with Hagar, Sarah, and Halah problems have different taste. Excessive obesity is the main and direct reason for the state of frustration they live. It may lead them to isolate from people and retire life after the failure of all methods of treatment and the multiple stages in changing their image to the better.
Does obesity hinder them from interacting with worldly matters in a better way, and on the top is study? What about the society's view to them, and would it affect negatively their feeling with the crisis?
To what extent can cosmetic surgery contribute to solve this problem especially after the numerous resulting problems. Do some people still see cosmetic surgery a perfect solution or it has become an impossible solution, especially its cost is not available to all people?
Questions are numerous and the following lines are just a try to approach the concerns of girls who were afflicted by obesity.
● Sarah, who is the most frustrated, asserts that she rarely goes to the university because of the students' looks that make her feel ashamed. On her part, she tried a lot to follow a special nutrition system at the hand of specialists but she has always failed to reach the required shape and size, especially after she had refused any cosmetic surgery such as: Liposuction, lap band, or something else.
● Hagar also has suffered a lot from people's looks: Sometimes pity or mockery looks intentionally or unintentionally. She always sensitive to receive the reactions of people around her, moreover excessive obesity hinders her from practicing academic activities. In short, obesity prevents her from living her age, the matter which makes her feel sad because she is prevented from practicing an important aspect of life.
● Halah is also frustrated and feels depression all the time, especially when she sees other girls wear clothes that manifest their beauty, however she has not much choices and that makes her frustrated and depressed.
The looks of people, especially their colleagues -as Halah, Hagar, and Sarah assert- are disturbing and embarrassing, but rather psychologically destructive, and many girls do not know that. When they mock at our obesity -which is out of our control because in most cases it is morbid and connected by some body hormones even if it is because of excessive eating- as Halah and her mates see, it is not permissible for anyone to mock at it, no matter what the reasons are.
Does heredity affect the increase of weight?
A question that was answered by Dr. Ahmad `Adel Nour Al Din, the professor of cosmetic surgery at the school of medicine at Cairo University, confirms that many distortions or fatty clusters are hereditary meaning that the number of cells in these zones which suffer from a fatty distortion is great, and this number is not due to the body but it is a hereditary disease; examples are many and scientifically proven.
The progress of age is one of these factors which cause obesity where the body automatically distributes fats inside the body and gives some muscles a large amount of fats because they have been atrophied and need to be replaced by new tissues that are able to store fats. This happens when the flexible tissues are reducing causing the skin to lose its flexibility and the fatty clusters show up clearly underneath.
At last, Dr. Ahmad indicates to the bad nutrition habits which ignore the balanced nutrition style which may contribute in increasing of weight.
Dreams in the air:
About the cosmetic surgery and whether it is able to solve the problem of obesity, Dr. Ahmad sees that a large number of the cases may subject to surgery because the desire of beautifying the body is quick and nutrition systems do not benefit with beautification, no matter how hard they are. He added that these surgeries are better to be done after weight loss (diet) where some of the bodily areas will be more fatty than others, hence the surgeon intervenes through liposuction.
As for girls who are the nicest of all creatures, they are not interested in such surgeries, especially after the multiple problems that happened to some of them, in addition to the very expensive costs. Moreover, the injection of thawing fats -the latest of scientific discoveries in this field- are not accepted to many of them because of many reasons as Sarah asserts according to her personal experience. These surgeries are not fit for all body spots and they are very expensive. One session, which its effect may not show up at once, may reach one thousand pounds for few millimeters and the body needs more than one session. There should be a period of 6 weeks between each session along with following a balanced nutrition system. Hence, there is no benefit of these sessions because it is part of illusion because the period is so long. So, if the body loses weight, it will be because of the diet not the injections.
As much as some people hate the fatness of their bodies, we see that others do not pay attention to it. This was confirmed by Salma, a student of education college, where she is coexistent with her fatness and she does not pay attention to the opinions of others. Moreover, she gave up diet ultimately because she has noticed little additional weight with every try along with subsequent depression. Therefore, she decided to reduce the amount of food along with her keenness to cancel dinner as much as she can and to reduce eating sweets. That diet had reasonable results, although she still suffers fatness, but she is no longer under psychological pressure.
Gawahir is also a fat girl who coexists with her shape. She says: Now, I deal easily with my condition because my shape became acceptable to others through my activity, vitality, and my ability to cope up with life and its activities.
