Gastric Injection

Obesity is one of the biggest and most serious health problem in our age. There are some patients looking for non-surgical options when it come to weight loss treatments. Gastric Injection is among those non-surgical solutions.

What Is Gastric Injection?

Gastric Injection, as known as Stomach Injection (Botulinum toxin), works just the same way Injection works on the face muscles. It neutralizes the motor nerves and the smooth muscles of the stomach wall for a period that can extend up to 6 months. It will help to reduce appetite and keep nutrients in the stomach longer. The main effect of gastric Injection is to slow down the movement of the stomach and the transit time of food from the stomach to the intestine that lasts up to 12 hours. This makes a person feel full for a long time.

Who Can Benefit from Gastric Injection?

Gastric Injection injections are not suitable for treating all obesity conditions. People who have struggled with significant weight gain are not suitable for this procedure.

Still, It is suitable for those who suffer from excess weight or people who suffer from poor appetite control. It is recommended for the patients whose BMI (Body Mass Indicator) is somewhere between 28 and 40.

What Are the Benefits of Gastric Injection?

  • Gastric Injection is a non-surgical procedure. There are no incisions or sutures, so no bandages are required.
  • Immediate return to daily activities is expected.
  • The healing process is faster and more comfortable than other weight loss surgeries.

How is Gastric Injection Applied?

  • 1. The doctor applies sedation to the throat area in order to prevent any vomiting possibility of the patient. No general anesthesia is required, henceforth the patient remains concious during the procedure.
  • 2. The endocope will be inserted to the stomach through the mouth. With the help of the camera, the doctors will be able to monitor the insides of the stomach. The injection will be inserted to the muscles of the stomach wall.
  • T3. After all the required amount of Injection has been injected into the designated area, the doctor removes the endoscope. Patients can be discharged on the same day and can easily return to their daily activities.


Even though it is an effective weight loss method, a miracle cannot be expected after Gastric Injection. It is an ideal solution for patients who wants to loose 10-15 kg. It will most certainly help you to diminish your appetite and adjourn gastric emptying. But it needs to be combined with a diet. If you comply with your diet, you will definitely loose weight. Its effect will last up to 6 months.
