  • AAnthony Kalloo, MD, Gastroenterology, answered on behalf of Johns Hopkins Medicine

    Gastric botox is ideal for men and women with a body mass index (BMI) between 26 and 40 who wish to lose between 10 and 50 pounds. The program is not for obese patients who want to lose 100 pounds or more.

    The program, which is usually not covered by insurance, is designed to help people maintain a healthier lifestyle. It is more effective when paired with lifestyle modifications such as exercise and a nutritious diet.
