The Decision for Gastric Bypass Surgery

Notably, Nicky Jam's choice of bariatric procedure was spurred by the entertainment industry's demands for maintaining specific physical appearances, particularly for roles in movies and music videos. The surgical process involved reducing his stomach size, a decision that the artist admits was nerve-racking.
