Who is suitable for stomach botox?
Stomach botox can actually be applied to anyone who wants to lose weight. This procedure is not an obesity surgery. However, there are certain criterias for patients who can be applied.
- It is a suitable method for those who cannot lose weight properly with diet and sports.
- Gastric botox is not recommended in patients with a body mass index above 40 and who can achieve success with obesity surgery.
- Body mass index of the patients to whom stomach botox will be applied should be below 40. In other words, it is applied in individuals who cannot lose weight with diet and exercise, whose body mass index is between 27-35, and who has an excess of 10-20 kilos. At this point, patients who are overweight but not obese enough to be operated and want to lose weight make up the ideal patient group.
In patients with ulcers or gastritis in their stomach, first of all, appropriate treatment of these diseases can be performed and then stomach botox can be applied.
