FAQ

Before the surgery, a consultation with a laryngologist is required to qualify the patient for the operation. Afterwards, the patient has to prepare for the surgery, that is: 2 weeks before the procedure, stop taking anticoagulants or anti-inflammatory drugs and 6 hours before the procedure, refraining from eating or drinking. At the beginning of the procedure, the patient is anaesthetised with a special spray. After the spray has been applied to the soft palate and uvula, the area is locally anaesthetised with a minimum amount of anaesthetic and then, using a special electrode, radio waves are applied to the area of the uvula and soft palate to harden it and enlarge the throat, i.e. shorten the uvula, trim the palatal arches and, possibly, reduce weight of the palatine tonsils. The whole procedure takes about 40 minutes and after it is finished, the patient can go home.

Avoiding exercise, avoiding prolonged head bending for 14 days, avoiding spicy, acidic, very hot, very cold foods, drinking 2 liters of fluids a day for about 14 days, returning to anticoagulants is possible 14 days after surgery

Pregnancy, menstruation and period directly before menstruation, active infection
