pillar implant surgery for sleep apnea

Hi- I am considering having a surgery that combines turbinate reduction with pillar implants in the soft palate to treat my sleep apnea, as I really can't tolerate CPAP anymore. Is there anyone out there who has had this done? What kind of experience/results did you have? Would appreciate any info to help me decide.

Re: pillar implant surgery for sleep apnea

Beware of turbinate reduction. Many people ended up with empty nose syndrome after turbinate surgery. Also, pillar implants rarely cure people of sleep apnea.
