Common Questions about FACE® Tonsil Reduction Surgery
Am I a Candidate for Coblation Surgery?
Collation tonsil reduction surgery is indicated for the treatment of chronically infected tonsils, “tonsil stones” (tonsiliths), and enlarged tonsils. It is appropriate for patients over the age of 16 and can be helpful for people seeking a snoring remedy. Older ways of removing the tonsils and adenoids include cutting with a scalpel or burning with electrocautery. These methods can cause extensive pain and may damage surrounding healthy tissue. Our advanced coblation technology allows us to gently and precisely remove tissue leading to a fast and easier recovery.
