    Procedure Explanation

    The injection of botulinum toxin at the gastric level is a new non-surgical endoscopic procedure that allows for weight loss by temporarily immobilizing the walls of the stomach and reducing their elasticity for 4 to 6 months.

    Also known as endoscopic botox injection into the stomach, this non-surgical procedure aims to slow down stomach emptying. This is achieved by injecting with the help of an endoscope, without the need for incisions.

    As a result of the procedure, patients feel full very quickly and over time, they reduce their food intake and thus their weight.

    When a normal person has breakfast in the morning, the stomach empties the food in about 3-4 hours, while in the case of someone who has had Botox injections, it takes the stomach 9-10 hours to digest the food, making the person feel satiated. As a result, this reduces the overall food intake per day.

  • Therapeutic Indication

    Gastric Botox is generally recommended for people with a high Body Mass Index (BMI) who have difficulty losing weight despite sustained efforts in diet and physical exercise. However, it is possible to undergo the procedure to lose weight on a one-off basis.

    It can be used as a complement to a comprehensive weight management program.

  • Anesthesia

    Gastric Botox is performed under endoscopy with local anesthesia.

    The Gastric Botox procedure is typically done under local anesthesia or light sedation. Your doctor will discuss the most appropriate anesthesia options for you, based on your medical condition and personal preferences.


    The procedure lasts on average 15 to 20 minutes on an outpatient basis. After a short rest, you will be active again.

  • This procedure also helps for a punctual weight loss.

    Results and Long-Term Maintenance

    The results of Gastric Botox can vary from one individual to another, but most patients notice a decrease in appetite and progressive weight loss over time. It is important to note that the effects of Gastric Botox are temporary and usually last between 3 and 6 months. To maintain the results, regular reinjection sessions may be required.

    There are no adverse effects unlike the gastric balloon which can cause nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain.

  • Convalescence

    The recovery period after Gastric Botox is usually short. Patients can resume their normal activities the day after the procedure. However, it is recommended to follow the doctor's instructions regarding post-procedure diet and hydration.


    Gastric Botox is a simple procedure that has no side effects. However, you will still need to be cautious after the procedure to adopt a good dietary hygiene by avoiding foods that are too fatty and too sugary to accelerate weight loss.
