If you’ve been looking for a permanent treatment for snoring that doesn’t involve surgery or sleeping with a medical device, Elevoplasty® treatment is an option you may wish to consider.
Snoring is the rattling sound which occurs when a patient breathes in air and the relaxed tissues of the throat vibrate. Some people only snore occasionally, but others snore almost every night, often because there is an obstruction or a genetic predisposition to tissues that are softer and lower.
For spouses and partners, snoring can be an annoyance. It can also be a serious health concern. Snoring can lead to interrupted sleep, which can result in dangerous levels of fatigue and chronic health conditions, including high blood pressure. A good night’s sleep is essential to good mental health and overall health. If snoring is interfering with your quality of sleep, it might be time to seek medical intervention.
Elevoplasty® is a minimally invasive snoring treatment that provides long-term relief. This treatment uses three sutures, which are placed in the soft palate at the back of the throat to lift and stiffen the tissue. As the tissue in the soft palate is lifted, air can move more freely, allowing the patient to breathe more easily during sleep. As a result, snoring is reduced or eliminated in many cases. Three out of four patients experience relief from snoring after the treatment.
Elevoplasty® is an inpatient procedure. You may experience a sore throat afterward, and you will need to avoid alcohol, spicy foods and acidic foods for the few days it takes the sutures to heal.
