This is used to treat obstruction of the nasal passage caused by issues like a deviated septum or a nasal valve collapse.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty removes or reshapes tissue around the soft palate and throat. This has gone out of favor in recent years.
This is considered a minimally invasive procedure that uses small implants to reinforce the soft palate and reduce vibration.
Tongue Base Reduction
Large or excess tongue tissue can be removed surgically or even minimized through the application of radiofrequency waves.
Genioglossus Advancement (GGA)
This procedure moves the tongue muscle forward so it does not collapse backward during sleep.
This option moves the small bone in your throat to expand the airway and prevent collapse.
Maxillomandibular Advancement (MMA)
This procedure physically moves the upper and lower jaws forward to open the upper airway; after which, the jawbone is surgically stabilized in its new position.
