What to expect during the Stomach Botox Injection Procedure?
To ease discomfort before beginning the surgery, your specialist could use an oral spray. An endoscope will then be inserted from your mouth to your stomach. A needle containing Botox will be injected at the conclusion of this endoscopy. Following the completion of the stomach endoscopy, the doctor will begin injecting botox into specific locations along the stomach wall, causing the stomach muscles to relax.
Additionally, the doctor will administer Botox to block the central nerve of the stomach, which regulates emotions of hunger and fullness, making you feel fuller and longer than usual after the treatment. Botox will be administered in precise amounts based on your needs, not randomly. Stomach botox is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t call for a night in the hospital. It takes 20 to 30 minutes; the next day, you can go straight home and carry on with your regular activities.
What to Expect After Stomach Botox Procedure?
Because the endoscope is introduced through the mouth and passed through the throat during the surgery, you can experience throat soreness afterward. It is also possible to feel uncomfortable, worn out, and exhausted for days. These emotions will eventually pass. However, the day after the surgery, you can resume your normal activities.
Once the oral spray medication has completely worn off and you feel your throat returning to normal, the surgeon will ask you to wait a few hours before eating or drinking. Immediately following the injection, you will start to experience a sense of fullness and satiety. However, it would be better to hold off until shedding a sizable amount of your excess weight for four to six months.
