Stomach (Gastric) Botox in Iran

Gastric Botox in Iran is performed by skilled specialists in clinics and hospitals.
Gastric Botox or Stomach Botox is a non-surgical method of losing weight by injecting a “Botulinum toxin” into particular parts of the stomach by endoscopic method without any surgical intervention.
Botulinum toxic, Botox, in short, is a neurotoxic protein generated by clostridium botulinum bacteria and the related species. This method brings a limitation to the contraction of the stomach muscles. Through the restriction, the evacuation time of the stomach is delayed and the patient feels full sooner. The amount of applied Botox varies from person to person. With the gastric Botox method, the stomach begins to decrease and weight loss occurs for a while (for about 6 months).
The reason this method has become common is that it can be applied in a short time without the need for surgical intervention.
The patients should be careful of following the dietary lists given by the bariatric dietitian because weight loss in gastric Botox happens based on calorie restriction. Therefore, it is required not to cheat and eat properly as stated in the diet.
They should also not forget that if treated patients go out of the rules, an increase in the munchies and congestion may occur depending on the food they eat. This may affect the rate of weight loss between follow-ups.
Finally, gastric Botox is quite a successful and satisfying treatment method as long as performed by experienced hands with correct techniques and the subsequent nutritional rules are obeyed.
Stomach Botox for Weight Losing

Gastric Botox Procedure

The specialists may use an oral spray to reduce discomfort. Then, they insert an endoscopy from your mouth down into the stomach. At this point, they inject the Botox into specific points of the stomach wall through a needle at the end of the endoscopy. They also block the stomach’s central nerve which controls feelings of hunger and satiety. This way, the patient will feel full more quickly.
Contrary to other bariatric surgeries, gastric Botox is non-surgical and is not performed under general anesthesia.

Who Is the Right Candidate for Gastric Botox?

Gastric Botox is not a weight loss solution for everyone. It is typically recommended for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher who have not achieved significant weight loss through diet and exercise alone. It may also be considered for individuals who are not candidates for gastric bypass surgery or who wish to avoid invasive procedures.
However, gastric Botox is not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as gastroparesis (a condition in which the stomach does not empty properly), or a history of gastrointestinal surgery. It is not also recommended for people who have an allergy to Botox. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if gastric Botox is a safe and appropriate option for you.

How Much Weight Can I Lose After the Stomach Botox Procedure?

It is not possible to give an exact number. Your weight loss will depend on many factors. For example, if you are obese or overweight, you will probably lose more weight than people with mild or moderate weight problems.
On the other hand, if you follow a strict diet and exercise program, you will probably lose more weight. Limiting your calorie intake after the Stomach Botox procedure will significantly improve your results as well. In addition to following a diet, doing mild to moderate exercise will also support your entire weight loss process.

Does Stomach Botox Have Side Effects?

In general, patients do not complain about any Stomach Botox side effects. The procedure is relatively safe and the complications are simpler compared to other weight loss operations.
But in some cases, there might be discomfort for a few couple of days. Botox injection changes the movements of your muscles. So, your body needs time to adjust to these changes and it might take up to 7 days to adjust.
As you try to consume food like you used to do, this will cause discomfort and digestion problems. Over time, you will adjust to your new situation. Additionally, endoscopy might also cause some discomfort. But this discomfort is temporary and you will feel better in a couple of hours.
In some cases, the patients may feel pain or swelling in the area of injection, bleeding (rarely), allergy, nausea, constipation, and indigestion.
