Sleep apnea affects around 22 million people in the United States each year. It has a negative effect on their quality of sleep and can also impact their partner’s sleep quality. An excellent way to resolve the problem is with a procedure called an Elevoplasty®.
An Elevoplasty® is a minimally-invasive procedure that provides permanent relief from sleep apnea. Dr. Anthony Farole, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, conducts Elevoplasty® treatments from his full-time practice in Bala Cynwyd, PA.
Do You Snore?
Most people snore to some degree. However, some individuals snore excessively. Sleep apnea happens when the airway gets blocked as you sleep, resulting in loud snoring. People who experience sleep apnea may also stop breathing, causing them to jolt awake.
It’s an unfortunate cycle of events that occur multiple times and means those people cannot enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. It’s also worth noting that sleep apnea can potentially be fatal if the problem does not get resolved.
If you find that you experience mild to moderate snoring, you may have felt compelled to purchase a snore-reduction device to use at night. But, an attractive alternative is an Elevoplasty® procedure.
Purpose of Elevoplasty®
Elevoplasty® is ideal for patients that want a permanent solution to their sleep apnea and don’t wish to wear a snore-reduction device every night.
An Elevoplasty® involves shortening the soft palate in your mouth, significantly reducing the likelihood of it obstructing your breathing at night. The procedure also consists of stiffening the soft palate, making it less likely to vibrate and cause snoring noises.
Elevoplasty® is a procedure that Dr. Farole carries out on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home once the procedure gets completed.

Benefits of Elevoplasty®
The most significant advantage of electing for Elevoplasty® is that it provides real results for patients experiencing sleep apnea. Once you have an Elevoplasty®, you no longer need to wear a snore-reduction device or keep your partner awake at night from your snoring.
Elevoplasty® is also a minimally-invasive procedure. There is minimal downtime, and the results are virtually life-changing for everyone that has an Elevoplasty®. You’ll soon be enjoying a peaceful night’s sleep every night.
When you start having a restful night’s sleep, you’ll also feel more alert during the day and less likely to sleep during the daytime.
Are You a Candidate for Elevoplasty®?
If you are experiencing mild to moderate snoring and no longer get a good night’s sleep, you might be a candidate for Elevoplasty®. The procedure can often completely eliminate snoring, but it will always improve your quality of sleep.
Patients that experience sleep apnea and don’t want to wear a snore-reduction device make ideal candidates for an Elevoplasty® procedure. All adults can have an Elevoplasty®, and it’s a great way to resolve a potentially severe medical condition.
