About Sleep apnea surgery, Snoring surgery, UPPP, LAUP, RFA
Some people my find snoring simply annoying, but serious problems can lead not only to strains in your relationships, but to more serious problems like sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is when your throat becomes blocked during sleep. You actually stop breathing for short periods of time, causing you to briefly wake up and lose the quality of your rest. Besides snoring, you may also gasp or snort, wake up still tired after a full night's sleep, wake up with headaches, feel sleepy or even fall asleep during the day, have problems with memory or concentration, or be cranky and short-tempered. Sleep apnea also makes you more likely to develop even more serious issues like high blood pressure, heart attack, heart failure, stroke or sexual dysfunction.
The goal of most surgeries for breathing problems is to widen the airway. This is done by taking out or shrinking excess tissue where the mouth meets the throat. Some procedures are only for snoring and will not help sleep apnea.
