During a consultation with Cutis Cosmetic Facial Surgeon, Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, a general health assessment will be made to ensure treatment suitability. The treatment is performed under local or general anesthetic and can last between 30 minutes to two hours. Our highly trained professionals take every safeguard to ensure our patients are fully informed and prepared for both pre and post-treatment care.

Recovery

Recovery time for snoring intervention varies. Effective pain management will be discussed and prescribed prior to treatment. The participation in regular activities, including work, may need to be suspended for one to two weeks, with strenuous activity suspended until week three.


How It Works

There are a variety of approaches to addressing disruptive snoring and improving airflow. Snoring is related to lax tissues in the palate and pharynx and sometimes the tongue base. Each source requires a unique intervention and will vary between patients.
