      What Is Stomach Botox?

      This may surprise you, but you can actually lose weight after receiving a small injection! “How is that possible?”, I hear you asking. Well, let’s introduce you to stomach Botox injections!

      Stomach or gastric Botox is a new, noninvasive method that promises easier weight loss with fewer risks. Botox injection can delay digestion and reduce appetite by relaxing stomach muscles and decreasing their contractions.

      In other words, stomach Botox can make you feel fuller and less eager to eat food. The results of the treatment usually last for up to 6 months. Doctors use an endoscope (a flexible tube with a syringe) to administer the injections. The endoscope is inserted into the stomach through the mouth.

      Why Choose Stomach Botox?

      Besides being a simple and straightforward treatment, stomach Botox can provide you with multiple benefits, including:

      How Does Gastric Botox Work?

      Gastric Botox is a technique that aids in weight loss by relaxing the stomach muscles, which results in fewer muscle contractions and a reduction in appetite, leading to a decrease in food intake and easier maintenance of a healthy diet. The food you eat will stay in your stomach for a longer duration, causing a decrease in overall appetite without any harm to your body.

      The effects of Gastric Botox are noticeable within 2-3 days and typically last for around 6 months. However, it is important to remember that committing to a healthy diet and regular exercise is essential for successful weight loss. Without these lifestyle changes, the technique may not be as effective as desired.

      Candidates for Stomach Botox

      There is no age limit for the procedure, but patients must be over 18 years old. Nearly everyone can choose to have stomach Botox to lose weight, but doctors usually tend to suggest this procedure for people who meet the following criteria:

      Who Can Not Have Gastric Botox?

      Doctors don’t recommend gastric Botox for pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with a body mass index of 35 or higher, those with genetic diseases, and obese patients who have had or require surgical intervention.

      After all, the drug used in the procedure (Botulinum toxin) can be transmitted to the baby through breast milk or the womb. Thankfully, however, gastric Botox affects only the smooth muscles in the stomach, with no impact on the neural or digestive systems.

      Nonetheless, individuals with myopathy or an allergy to the Botulinum toxin may experience negative side effects and should avoid the procedure. Hence, doctors should investigate allergies before administering this treatment.

      Preparation for Stomach Botox

      You have first to find a skilled doctor or a respected clinic that offers such treatment. To prepare you for this procedure, they may ask you to:

      Steps of Stomach Botox

      The procedure of stomach Botox is simple and requires around 15-30 minutes to complete. In addition, patients usually can return home the same day without hospital admission. The steps usually include the following:

      Anesthesia

      Your doctor may give you local anesthesia or mild sedation to keep you comfortable and spare you any unwanted pain.

      Botox Injection

      Your doctor starts administering botulinum toxin (around 500 IU to 1000 IU) into certain spots of your abdomen. Finally, they transfer you to the recovery room and monitor your health for a while before allowing you to back home.

      Recovery After Stomach Botox

      The recovery phase after the stomach Botox procedure includes the following:

      Losing Weight with Stomach Botox

      Stomach injections with botulinum toxin can be effective in achieving successful weight loss. In fact, they can result in a 5% to 10% reduction in your weight over six months only. To optimize results, you must work closely with your doctor or dietitian who can help you incorporate regular exercise into your routine and follow a healthy and nutritious diet.

      Furthermore, your doctor may advise you to chew your food thoroughly, eat slowly to avoid stomach discomfort and stop eating when you feel full. Remember, however, that the botulinum toxin will freeze your stomach muscles for around three months, and the effects may start to diminish after this period. If the results are encouraging for you, you can repeat the procedure after six months after the last one.

      Is Gastric Botox Dangerous?

      Gastric Botox is a non-surgical procedure that allows patients to move around easily after the procedure. Clearly, this procedure is safer and less risker than surgical options, such as a gastric sleeve or gastric band. In fact, gastric Botox is a great alternative to these procedures, but it may not be as effective.

      The Botulinum toxin, which is injected into specific parts of the body during the procedure, is naturally eliminated from the body after 4-6 months. Therefore, it doesn’t pose a danger to your health because it temporarily slows down stomach muscle contractions.

      Stomach Botox Injection Success Rate

      The success rate of stomach Botox is evidently high, but it remains a temporary treatment for obesity. According to sources, people can lose up to 22 pounds (10 kg) of weight in the 6 months that follow the procedure. Although such a weight loss seems significant, it doesn’t compare to surgical obesity treatments, such as a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, which can drastically change the shape and amount of fat in the body during the 10-20 years (not 6 months) after the procedure.  

      Risks of Stomach Botox

      Thankfully, stomach Botox is one of the safest obesity treatments. It carries little to no risks and side effects. However, some cases may complain from the following:

      Bimodal (Dual Mode) Stomach Botox

      Bimodal Stomach Botox doesn’t differ much from traditional Stomach Botox. In short, it’s a non-surgical weight loss method that is administered endoscopically in just 15 minutes, without requiring hospitalization, stitches, or medical dressing.

      The goal of this procedure is to help you lose weight in a healthy and easy way by reducing your appetite and making you feel full faster. Dr. Çetin Altunal and his team developed Bimodal Gastric Botox by bringing together scientific data and their experience in this field, which was shared with the medical community at an International Scientific Congress in 2019.

      The method aims to help you get rid of the weight you cannot lose, protect you from the risks of surgery, and prevent hospitalization processes. In any case, Bimodal stomach Botox is a treatment that uses Botox hormone to reduce appetite and create a long-lasting feeling of fullness by delaying gastric emptying and limiting stomach muscle contraction.

      Stomach Botox During Pregnancy

      Doctors don’t recommend Gastric Botox and other cosmetic procedures for pregnant women due to the limited research on their safety and effects. The botulinum toxin used in these procedures can spread in the body and cause serious side effects that can harm the mother and the baby.

      As a result, pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to avoid such procedures. Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, you must talk to your doctor to determine the best course of action and minimize the risk of potential harm to your baby.

      Stomach Botox in Children

      Stomach Botox is typically not performed on children due to limited information about its safety and effects. However, in rare cases such as childhood dystonia, it can be used to improve symptoms and quality of life.

      The procedure should only be performed by a specialist, such as a pediatrician or neurology expert, and parents must be fully informed about potential side effects and their child’s health status. If stomach Botox is needed for a child, it’s recommended to consult with a specialist doctor.

      Stomach Botox Injection Cost in Turkey

      Stomach Botox injection costs around 1000-1250 US dollars in Turkey. Some clinics, however, may charge more or less, depending on their unique offers and packages. Although stomach Botox is cheaper than other obesity treatments, it’s not widely available in developed countries.

      Therefore, many patients choose to visit Turkey, where they can easily find clinics and hospitals that offer this treatment at discounted prices. Besides beings cheap, these injections are easy to get and don’t cause many concerns or possible complications.

      How International Clinics Can Help You?

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Non-surgical obesity treatment is possible by administering Stomach Botox, which decreases the hunger and produces a longer feeling of satiety, leading to weight loss, especially when combined with an appropriate diet and exercise routine.

      Stomach Botox is effective for moderate weight loss as it can help you lose around 10-15% of your excess weight within a couple of months. However, the effectiveness of stomach Botox can’t come near the effectiveness of surgical obesity treatments such as a gastric sleeve.

      Gastric Botox was approved by FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) and there are many clinical studies that examined its effectiveness and application.

      There is no guarantee for weight loss methods, including gastric Botox. It’s incorrect to believe that weight loss can be achieved by relying solely on a single method.

      People lose weight with stomach Botox by neutralizing the nerves and muscles that impact appetite and hunger.

      You must avoid sleeping on your stomach or side to prevent Botox from migrating to other areas.

      After undergoing a stomach Botox procedure, you must pay close attention to your nutrition. You should avoid excessive consumption of foods high in fat and carbohydrates, such as fast food. To achieve the maximum benefit from Botox, you must adapt to a healthy diet program as much as possible.

      What Will Happen When the Botox Is Gone?

      When the effect of Botox is gone, your desire for food will return to its normal level. The effect of the procedure is temporary and only helps to increase the feeling of fullness, resulting in reduced calorie consumption and weight loss during a limited period. To maintain the results of stomach Botox, you must follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen alongside the treatment.

      Is Gastric Botox Cause Permanent Damage?

      Gastric Botox doesn’t cause permanent damage as it involves administering a medicine called “Botulinum toxin” that only targets specific areas of the body and is eliminated from the body within 4-6 months, after which the stomach returns to its normal state, with no permanent damage caused.
