Bariatric Surgery - Obesity Surgery, Stomach Botox
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery)
Sleeve Gastrectomy also known as ''Gastric Sleeve Surgery'' is one of
the methods of obesity surgery which restricts food intake by removing 80 % of
the stomach thus reducing its volume.
Gastrectomy is a successful, effective and permanent weight loss solution for
patients who cannot lose weight with other methods like diet and exercise. In
addition, bariatric surgery methods are applied to relieve secondary disorders
such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
All our patients must have a consultation with our Psychiatrist and
Dietitian before their surgery. It is important to understand why the patient
needs the surgery, what kind of surgery she/he will have, what kind of results
the patient expects after the surgery and what kind of changes he/she will need
to make in terms of nutrition, diet and lifestyle. It is essential to
understand all possible risks and side effects and to ensure that the patient
does not suffer from any serious psychiatric illnesses such as substance abuse,
suicidal thoughts or emotional eating disorders.
Our patients complete all the preoperative assessments at our hospital
within maximum two days. Heart diseases, hormonal disorders and pulmonary
diseases are the most important causes and consequences to consider with this
surgery. Patient results are discussed, and any implementations are evaluated
by the Specialist Committee of Cardiologists, Chest Diseases and Internal
The Botox application to the stomach is performed endoscopically within
15-20 minutes under general anesthesia. The patient is discharged the same day
after the procedure.
Who can get stomach botox ?

to lose weight but however it is also important to select the right patient as it should be noticed that
gastric botox will not be very successfull in patients with a body mass index over 35,
for whom surgery would be much more convenient and successfull. Therefore, patients overweighted but not
obese enough to undergo surgery are the ideal patient group for stomac botox treatment.
Patients suffering from gastric ulcers or gastritis can have stomach botox
injection after an appropriate treatment of these diseases.
Can stomach botox injections help
people lose weight?
expected to lose 10-15% of their total weight over a period of 3 to 6 months. Depending
on the age, metabolism and type of exercising
the weight loss varies from person to person but it would be wrong to consider
the stomoch botox as a miraculous treatment to definitely lose weight. Being
efficient in dietary programmes gastric botox injection reduces appetite but
can be ineffective with patients consuming considerable amount of food rich in
