Tongue Base Reduction is a safe procedure to improve your sleep and cure your snoring
Tongue Base Reduction is a surgical procedure for treating obstructive sleep apnea. The tongue base can contribute to obstructive sleep apnea by collapsing into the airway from size alone or due to prominent lingual tonsils, retrognathia, or hypotonia. Tongue base reduction allows resection of a significant amount of tissue without compromising the tongue function. It is performed as a single-stage procedure and is one of the last surgical options left for treating sleep apnea after every other treatment has failed.
A narrow airway
Neck circumference – thicker neck
Difficulty paying attention while awake
Excessive daytime sleepiness

Waking up with a dry mouth
High blood pressure
In most cases, the ENT specialist tries to reduce or cure the symptoms through antibiotics and other medical interventions. Tongue Base Reduction is only prescribed when the most common procedures fail. It is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. Tongue base reduction with temperature-controlled radiofrequency tissue ablation is a safe and simple procedure; however, it may require multiple treatment sessions for curative results.
