Somnoplasty is an office procedure which uses low power and low temperature radio-frequency energy to increase the stiffness inside the soft palate and/or the nasal turbinate. This is a minimally invasive procedure which is relatively painless. The new shape of the soft palate or the reduced size of the nasal turbinate will increase the airflow and reduce the vibrations. The procedure usually takes less than twenty minutes.
