Rotten tonsils

Large, red tonsils like these are not normal and are likely to be causing quite a few symptoms. These range from chronic fatigue to tonsillitis, tonsil stones, bad breath, catarrh, sleep apnoea and snoring. To remove them completely is dangerous with a high bleeding risk, and very painful (NHS/dissection tonsillectomy). To shrink them right back by removing >90% using sequential intracapsular laser vapourisation under local anaesthetic spray is far nicer. Much less pain and rarely any blood loss at all.

Hello again, for me laser turbinoplasty is bloodless, effective and does not have the risk of empty nose syndrome. MD
