Stomach botulinum toksin is not a type of weight loss surgery but is anon surgical weight loss procedure!
Stomach botulinum toksin is not much different from botulinum toksin applied to the face or other parts of the body for aesthetic purposes. Botulinum toksin applied in both processes is the same substance. However, the dose of botulinum toksin used in stomach botulinum toksin is much higher than facial botulinum toksin due to the large surface area of the stomach and strong muscle tissue. Technically, both botulinum toksin techniques aim to achieve immobility in the muscle to which they are applied. The immobility provided by the injection of facial botulinum toksin provides the healing of wrinkles on the face, while the reduction in stomach movements provided by stomach injection, that is, stomach botulinum toksin.
The decrease in gastric contractions causes the foods in the stomach to leave the stomach much later, naturally, the foods that stay in the stomach for a long time provide a feeling of satiety for a longer time. In addition, when applied to the special part of the stomach, it provides a decrease in appetite. In other words, after stomach injection or stomach botulinum toksin, our patient will feel satiety for a longer time and less hunger.
Who Can Have Stomach Botulinum Toksin(Stomach Injection)?
Stomach botulinum toksin is generally a more appropriate procedure to be selected in overweight and those with mild obesity problems, because the expected weight loss will be 10-15 kg in the method that works for 4-6 months.
We are already evaluating our patients with more serious obesity problems in terms of bariatric surgery.
Stomach botulinum toksin is rising as a good, safe and risk-free alternative for our patients who cannot get the necessary results from diet and sports, want to get faster results or want to get fast results without a serious diet or are afraid of surgery.
Another area of use of stomach botulinum toksin is that people with weight gain after obesity surgery look like oalack. Since revisions of obesity surgeries are more laborious, stomach botulinum toksin can be considered as a remedy before revision. Stomach botulinum toksin will also be more effective when used with gastric balloon, it will also prevent severe stomach pains that can be seen in some patients after the balloon since it prevents stomach muscle contractions, and it will make the balloon process much more comfortable.
Scientific publications about stomach botulinum toksin for obesity treatment are gradually increasing. Let's see the first results of stomach botulinum toksin in the world.
In fact, since 2008, scientific articles have informed us that stomach botulinum toksin will rapidly become widespread.
In the research of Mark Topazian et al., In the journal "Obes Surg", a leading scientific medical journal in the field of obesity, it was reported that botulinum toksin applied to the stomach muscle caused a feeling of satiety and weight loss in patients and no side effects were observed. In addition, they found that food remained in the stomach much longer after stomach botulinum toksin.
In the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Journal, Dr. Andrew Ukleja et al. Reported in 2015 that the botulinum toksin procedure applied to the stomach due to another stomach condition is safe, effective and has no side effects.
In 2012, a very good research in Chinese Scientists was published in Hepatogastroenterology journal, Dr. According to the research of Li L. and his team, Stomach botulinum toksin delays gastric emptying, provides weight loss and reduces appetite, which is the appetite hormone Ghrelin.
Publications on Stomach botulinum toksin are increasing rapidly, and those interested in the subject can easily access the necessary medical databases. According to scientific results, it seems that the application of stomach botulinum toksin, which is a non-surgical obesity treatment, will become more common. The feedback we received from our patients and the post-procedure comfort and satisfaction levels confirm this.
After Stomach botulinum toksin, we definitely consider dietician support as necessary, we know that no obesity treatment is permanent unless the necessary behavioral and dietary changes are provided, even this is valid for surgical treatments of obesity. Therefore, as the World Obesity Center, we provide dietician and psychological consultancy services to our patients who have had Gastric botulinum toksin procedure. Please not that stomach botulinum toksin is not a type of weight loss surgery, it is non surgical technic.
What are the Similarities of Face and Stomach Botulinum Toksin?
We, as the World Obesity Center, started to receive the first results of botulinum toxin injection, which has been followed by obesity physicians for about 2 years and spread from the mouth to the ear as a stomach injection among the public. Although the use of botulinum toksin for obesity treatment is very new in the world, botulinum toksin application to the stomach for the treatment of achalasia or gastroparesis diseases has been used for almost 30 years.
The new information is that botulinum toksin injection into the stomach can be used in the treatment of obesity. In this respect, stomach botulinum toksin is not actually new, on the contrary, it is an old and very reliable technique with a new usage area. We wanted to explain the use and effect of stomach botulinum toksin in obesity treatment and all other aspects for you with scientific aspects. Will stomach botulinum toksin be an alternative method for weight loss surgery is another question that we still do not know the answer clearly but for now we can say that stomach botulinum toksin is good and easy treatment option for overweight and early stage obesity patients.
Stomach botulinum toksin is not a weight loss surgery procedure. It is a non surgical method.
Of course, stomach botulinum toksin has many differences from facial botulinum toksin. For example, while facial botulinum toksin is made for aesthetic purposes, stomach botulinum toksin has positive results in terms of both aesthetics and health thanks to the weight it gives. While facial botulinum toksin is a very painful procedure, it is not painful at all because it is applied directly to the stomach under anesthesia without any cut or hole on the skin by endoscopy, the patient does not feel any discomfort.
Stomach botulinum toksin is applied in a short time like Facial botulinum toksin. Stomach botulinum toksin, which is a non-surgical, non-balloon obesity treatment, is applied in 20 minutes by endoscopy. Afterwards, the patient is rested for 1 hour in order to eliminate the effect of anesthesia. One hour after stomach botulinum toksin application, the patient can go home and start feeding again, and the next day, he can start his normal work and daily life.
We observed in our patients that right after the stomach botulinum toksin application, that is, the stomach injection, patients feel a slight numbness in their stomach and feel anorexia, the numbness felt in the stomach passes the next day. We did not receive any nausea or vomiting pain complaints from our patients.
