Stomach botox, or otherwise known as gastric botox, is a non-surgical treatment of obesity. The process consists of applying botox injection (a toxin called Botulinum) to the smooth surface of the stomach. It results in limited contraction of stomach muscles and longer stomach emptying time, which makes the patient feel less hungry, and the feeling of satiety continues for a longer period.
The substance used in this procedure has no side effects or causes any damage to the stomach tissues. (with the exception of patients sensitive and alergic to botox, or patients with stomach muscle diseases).
