Soft Palate Coblation
Soft Palate Coblation?
Soft palate Coblation, performed at ENT of Georgia South, is a quick, in-office procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to perform. Soft palate Coblation shrinks and stiffens the soft palate in order to minimize snoring. Coblation is an advanced technology that involves the use of gentle radiofrequency energy to quickly and safely dissolve target tissue, leaving surrounding healthy tissue intact.
Soft Palate Coblation Work?
The procedure involves the use of radiofrequency energy to form channels in the tissue of the soft palate. The body’s natural response is to form scar tissue in these channels, which stiffens the soft palate. Patients can typically return to work immediately. Within one to four weeks, most patients experience a significant reduction in vibrations and snoring intensity.
