Immediately 3 hours before the procedure you should not eat or drink. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting. After administering anesthetic to the patient, the doctor, using a special device, damages the tissue of the tonsil palate, which leads to exfoliation, remodeling and formation of scars, which cause closing of small tonsil crypts and shallowing of large crypts. The procedure is painless and takes about 30 minutes.
