Weighing an estimated 500 kgs, Eman (36) was flown to Mumbai in a special cargo aircraft in February to undergo medical treatment for weight reduction.
The Daily Mail reported Abd El Aty lost 66 pounds in five days with a strict 1,200 calorie diet in preparation for the surgery.
For Eman, the doctors hope to make her lose around 200 kgs in the next six months.
She is still believed to be the world's heaviest woman ahead of American Pauline Potter, who weighed 46 stone (293kg) last July.
"The medical team of Saifee Hospital successfully performed a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery on Eman on March 7".
Eman is in Mumbai with her sister Shaimaa Ahmed who has a toddler back in Alexandria to take care of.
"We are trying to get her fit enough to fly back to Egypt as soon as possible", a hospital spokesperson said.More news: China's defence spending in 2017 to rise around 7 per cent
Ms Ahmed has been in hospital since February 10th when she was moved out of her home for the first time in 25 years by removing the wall from her room and a crane lifted out her bed.
Shen she arrived at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport she was transported to Saifee Hospital for the surgery on a truck in February.
However, Dr Lakdawala told the BBC in December that he believed Ms Abd El Aty did not have elephantiasis but suffered from obesity-related lymphoedema which causes very big swelling of the legs. "We had to remove her gallbladder as well, as she had 15 stones", he said.
There is no history of obesity in her family, inclining the doctors to suspect a genetic mutation may be responsible for the uncontrolled weight gain. The diet helped her drop 14 pounds a day.
Indian media reports suggested that Abd El Aty suffered stroke and faced a series of other ailments during the process, including high blood pressure, hypertension, diabetes and sleep deprivation.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is used as a last resort to treat people who are dangerously obese and carrying an excessive amount of body fat.
