Gastric Botox

Gastric Botox

Gastric Botox application is a relatively new weight-loss method based on the endoscopic injection of botox into certain parts of the stomach. In this method, we aim for a decrease in appetite by limiting the contraction of the stomach muscles.

Gastric Botox is suitable for anyone who wants to lose weight. This procedure is not a surgical operation. Patients who are overweight are the ideal patient group. After proper treatment of gastric ulcers, it is the best option for you. There are not any dangerous side effects of botox. Besides, we use this application with the purpose of reducing wrinkles on the skin. 

No method, including gastric botox, can give you the guarantee of losing weight. It is not right to treat it as a miraculous treatment. Although it has an appetite-reducing effect and helps you through your diet, there is a possibility that it will fail in high carbohydrate-fed patients.

Gastric Botox Process

Gastric botox is not a surgery. It is an oral procedure with an endoscopic application. 

  • The process takes 20 minutes on average without incision. 
  • Patients are under anaesthesia during the procedure.
  • You may leave the hospital after some time. 
  • Generally, 1-2 hours of observation is sufficient after the procedure. 
  • There is not a possibility of permanent damage.

According to previous application and studies, patients can lose 10-15% of their total weight between three to six months. The weight loss depends on the age, metabolic rate, frequency of exercise of the patients. According to the studies, three sessions of botox are sufficient for the full effect.

What is Gastric Botox? 

It is the treatment of botulinum toxin (botox) which emerges from Clostridium Botulinum bacterium to allow the person to lose weight by endoscopic methods. This protein stops the electrical current in the nerves of the target region and thus prevents the muscle contraction for 4-6 months. The process takes about 15-20 minutes. After 20 minutes of rest, our patients return to their daily life.

All those who are overweight can not lose weight by doing sports can prefer gastric botox. It is especially effective for overweight individuals with a body mass index between 27.5 and 40.0.

Within three days after the application of gastric botox, appetite reduction and appetite control are possible. After the procedure, it is appropriate to follow the suggestions of a nutrition expert to lose weight healthily and effectively.

The method is a common one in the fight against obesity in Europe and America for the last ten years. In Turkey, we perform this operation as an option in the battle against obesity in recent years.
