Obesity is an exponentially increasing public health problem all over the world. When obesity is treated, many healing states begin to occur in obese individuals. Stomach Botox is also frequently used among non-surgical treatment methods. This prospective study examined the relationship between psychological symptoms and self-esteem levels before and after stomach Botox treatment.
MATERIAL AND METHODS
We administered a survey to gather baseline information, and used the form, Brief Symptoms Inventory and Rosenberg Self-Esteem scales. In total, 406 patients, including 369 females (90.9%) and 37 males (9.1%), participated in the research during February to August 2020.
Anxiety, negative personality, somatization, and hostility levels before Botox treatment were higher than after Botox treatment. Depression levels were higher after Botox treatment. Anxiety, somatization, and hostility increases were statistically significant (P<0.05). Depression and negative personality differences were insignificant (P>0.05). Before Botox treatment, all psychological symptom and self-esteem level correlations were insignificant (P>0.05). After Botox treatment, correlations between anxiety, negative personality and hostility levels with self-esteem level were statistically and negatively significant (P<0.05). Anxiety after Botox treatment had a significant effect on self-esteem level on multivariate level (P<0.05).
Obesity treatment methods positively affect physical health and mental health. While there are many confusing scientific studies on stomach Botox treatment, none of these studies seem to have had strict diet and movement monitoring. Stomach Botox treatment not only positively affects the physical appearance and mental health of individuals, but also their self-perception during the obesity treatment process.
