A uvuloplasty is a 10 minute office procedure performed under local anesthesia. It addresses the palatal snore that can result from an elongated or widened uvula. Depending on your anatomic findings, excision or modification of the uvula will occur to provide the best result. Often times a uvuloplasty is performed in conjunction with other snoring treatments to provide the best outcome.
