UPPP (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty)

Can’t sleep through the night? Stop torturing yourself.

Are you getting enough sleep each night? Do you feel refreshed in the morning?

If not, it could be affecting your health. Without sleep, mental and physical health issues may develop, and your level of energy will naturally decrease, negatively affecting your ability to function each day.

As someone who suffers from sleep apnea or chronic snoring, your sleep and health are always under attack. With sleep apnea, your sleep cycle is continuously disrupted during the night, forcing you to wake and restarting your sleep cycle before you can enter the most beneficial periods during sleep.

UPPP can reduce snoring and eliminate many of the symptoms associated with sleep apnea. Call to schedule an appointment with Indianapolis Sinus Center today and continue learning more below.

Feeling constantly tired? You could be suffering from chronic snoring and sleep apnea

Get the Sleep You Deserve with Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)

UPPP is a popular solution for reducing sleep apnea’s impact on your life. In order to increase your breathing airway and remove blockages, the Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) procedure removes throat tissue and part or all of your uvula, which may be the cause of your sleep apnea or snoring condition.

The procedure is:

  • Quick (approximately 60 minutes)
  • Completed as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia
  • Able to remove obstructions in the throat
  • An alternative to other similar reduction treatments
Heavy snorers have been helped by the benefits of the UPPP procedure

UPPP works to both enlarge and enhance your breathing airway to reduce any snoring experienced or trouble breathing while sleeping. This is why both tonsils and adenoids may also be removed in this process.

Why Remove the Uvula? What Purpose Does it Serve?

The uvula is removed when its size causes the vibrations that lead to heavy snoring or when it causes an airway blockage that leads to obstructive sleep apnea. While a uvula does serve a purpose in your body, which is aiding in your ability to produce saliva and articulate your speech, it may be fully or partially removed when it’s causing more issues than it is providing benefits to your health.

Is UPPP for you?

If you’re suffering from sleep apnea or snoring, you should explore your options, which include UPPP. UPPP removes soft tissue within your throat to clear your airway obstruction. With your airway clear, your body will no longer have to wake you up during sleep (sleep apnea) or produce loud sounds because of a blockage (snoring). To determine if this procedure is right for you, schedule an appointment with an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctor to discuss.
