    Gastric Botox

    Gastric Botox

    What is Gastric Botox?

    Gastric botox is one of the methods used in the treatment of obesity, which provides weight loss without surgical methods. Thanks to the restriction of the stomach muscles, the emptying time of the restricted stomach is delayed. In this way, the patient has a great advantage in losing weight. This method, which was introduced to the treatment of obesity by Norwegian scientists in the 2000s, has become increasingly common in the world. The purpose of this method is to limit the contraction coefficient of the stomach muscles and to ensure delayed emptying of the stomach.

    How is Gastric Botox Performed?

    It is performed endoscopically by injecting Botulinum toxin into certain parts of the stomach. Thanks to this method, the stomach muscles contract and restrict. Gastric emptying time is delayed. In this way, the patient experiences loss of appetite. The classic botox application is for the signs of aging on the skin. For the stomach, this method has been revised and has become a treatment that helps patients lose weight.
