Camilla Gonzales longed for the days when she would strut the beaches of her native Brazil, showing off her toned shape. But the 32-year-old architecture student — who stands 5-feet-5 — from Queens had gained 50 pounds, hitting 196 in the midst of her divorce.
“I used to have a nice, healthy body, but recently, every time I looked in the mirror I was sad,’’ she told The Post. “I tried medicine and crazy diets, but nothing worked. I was really suffering, to be
honest, and I wanted a life change.”
She started scouring the Internet for weight-loss operations. A lot of the surgeries sounded scary, but Gonzales was intrigued by Instagram posts about a simple-sounding procedure, called endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, which required no actual cutting.
A week later she had a consultation with … a gastroenterologist. Gonzales had her surgery in July, and has already dropped 26 pounds in six weeks.
