This is the story of Gracious D’costa who has been overweight for most of his life. He was referred to our clinic Instasculpt by his friend Jacob Philip who heard about his health condition.

But the big question he had was, “How can he lose this weight? How is this even possible? Where can he start?” He weighed 123.5 KG and now with his health being affected, Gracious had bigger concerns about his future health condition. That is when Jacob got him to our clinic in Mumbai, where he met with Dr.Manjiri Puranik, who has helped thousands of men and women, actors, film stars, businessmen lose weight without strenuous workouts or strict diets.
