In this treatment, a person tends to lose weight after Botox is injected into the stomach wall.

And when the overall food consumption is lowered, there is a chance of losing excessive weight.
The Endoscopic Gastric Botox is an outpatient procedure, which lasts for a duration of 20-25 minutes. The physicians make use of an endoscope to inject Botox into the upper &lower portion of the stomach and slow down the gastric motility leading to lesser consumption of food. After the treatment, the patient is asked to stay in the hospital for 2-3 hrs. There is usually no side effect of this treatment and the patient can resume his/her daily activities after a rest of a day.
