Surgery

If all other approaches haven't worked, your doctor may recommend surgery. There are several different types of operation; most are carried out on the soft palate in your throat. The aim of these operations is to remove, change or make smaller those parts of the soft tissues in your airways that vibrate when you're sleeping, causing you to snore. If you have large tonsils, having them removed can sometimes cure snoring.
These types of surgery aren't always effective at treating snoring. Your doctor will be able to give you more advice.
