What Is Gastric Botox?

Stomach Botox is one of the latest safest non-surgical solutions for losing weight and getting in shape. It works the same way as Botox works in the face area, when Botox get injected into the stomach, it relaxes the stomach muscles, causing them to be severely interrupted, which significantly reduces stomach contractions.

The effect of this procedure reduces hunger and bowl movement; therefore, you will feel full after only eating little food, which will help you stop gaining any more weight, alongside exercising of course to get rid of the excess weight that you already have.

The injections in the stomach Botox operation are preformed through a laparoscope, as it’s a non-surgical operation in which the doctor injects the stomach with Botox without any surgical incision.
