Your doctor will then insert an endoscope attached with a tiny camera through your throat into your stomach. The camera is connected to a monitor with which your doctor sees the inside of your stomach.
When the balloon is in place, the doctor will then fill up the balloon with saline fluid or gas. When the balloon is filled, it increases to about the size of a grapefruit. The balloon occupies a large part of your stomach, thereby reducing the amount of food the stomach can take.
