    Afraid of surgical bariatric surgeries and looking to lose weight non-surgically and in the least invasive way? 

    Stomach Botox in Turkey could be all you’re looking for.

    Yes, you heard it right! BOTOX!!

    You might now be wondering how Botox works for weight loss since we all know that it’s mainly used to treat wrinkles.

    In this article we will share with you all the details you need to know about stomach Botox and who makes the perfect case. 

    What is Stomach Botox?

    Stomach Botox injection is a non-surgical, non-invasive and pain-free procedure for weight loss. 

    How it works?

    It is done under local anesthesia (sedation) by inserting an endoscope from the mouth into the stomach and injecting the Botox in certain places of the stomach.  

    The Botox reduces the contractions of the stomach muscles and controls how fast the food is digested.  Thus, it limits food intake and people feel fuller faster than before. 

    Remember that without changes in your eating habits and physical activity you will not get the expected results.  

    It takes about 15-20 minutes and when patients wake up from the anesthesia, they do not feel any pain. Patients can leave the hospital 15-20 minutes after the procedure if they feel fine. If patients experience some dizziness, they will be monitored for a couple hours until they regain their strength. 

    Who is Eligible for Stomach Botox? 

    Stomach Botox procedure is suitable for people with a BMI of more than 25. The effect of the Botox lasts for 4-6 months.

    Who is not Eligible for Stomach Botox? 

    The procedure is not useful to treat obesity and is not a good option for those with 40 BMI or more. Also, those with muscles related diseases or have allergy to Botox are not a good match.
