Snoreplasty is a non-surgical procedure designed to reduce or eliminate snoring. Sometimes called Injection Snoreplasty the procedure involves using an anaesthetic to numb the back of the throat. An agent commonly used to treat varicose veins is then injected into the palate which causes the roof of the mouth to stiffen over a period of about a month. 

This injection will stop the fluttering of the palate which is the main cause of snoring in the patient. 

The operation will be appropriate is there is excess tissue in the soft palate which is largely responsible for the snoring, however if the source of the obstruction is elsewhere snoreplasty will not be suitable.

The operation will require a local anaesthetic and will last for approximately twenty minutes, after which you will be allowed to go home.

Please do discuss any questions you may have with your consultant prior to the procedure.

This procedure will normally be covered by the medical insurance policy but patients are advised to check with the provider prior to any treatment.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
