What is stomach botox? Stomach botox is the application of botulinum material, which is used in many treatments, to the preploric region of the stomach, which we call the exit gate of the stomach, and to the fundus area of the stomach by endoscopic method. As a result of this procedure, the patient is provided to lose weight by extending the gastric emptying time and reducing the ghrelin hormone, which is called the hunger hormone. In short, it is a method that helps the person lose weight by reducing the contraction of the stomach muscles and the feeling of hunger. In fact, the main purpose of this process is to ensure that people who have not lost weight despite repeated sports and diet experiments reach their ideal weight in a healthy way, and to gain them healthy eating and sports habits. This process alone does not provide miraculous results without the person's compliance with diet and sports. However, it seriously supports the person's adaptation to diet and sports. How is stomach botox applied? It is applied with endoscopic technique under sedoanelgesia (semi-sleep state) without the patient feeling pain. It is not a surgical method and therefore procedures such as incision and stitches are not applied. Processing time is approximately 20 minutes. Who can stomach botox be applied to?
