Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPP)

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPP) is a type of surgery that is used for removing tissue within the throat for those suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It involves removing tissues, including: the uvula, soft palate, pharynx, adenoids and tonsils. If OSA is getting in the way of a good night’s sleep (for you or your partner), you can schedule your surgery with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

How do I know if I need an uvulopalatopharyngoplasty?

For those who are struggling with obstructive sleep apnea, this procedure might be the answer you need. Instead of struggling to sleep at night, you can breathe easier with one simple procedure. Individuals that have already tried losing weight and sleeping in different positions often find this surgery is the only way to correct their problem.

How is the uvulopalatopharyngoplasty procedure performed?

The procedure is often administered in isolation. This stand-alone procedure is performed to remove the tissue blocking the airway at the back of the throat. By removing the tissue, the airway will become wider, thus making breathing easier. With all of the excess tissue trimmed away, the uvula is folded and sutured back to help create a larger opening.

What is recovery like after an uvulopalatopharyngoplasty?

Expect to spend about three weeks recovering from the surgery. It is often difficult to swallow in the first few weeks. Take it slowly and allow your throat the time it needs to heal. Consuming soft foods during this time will help to prevent irritation in your throat.

How much does an uvulopalatopharyngoplasty cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $5,745, versus having to pay $57,450 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
