Weight Loss Surgery and Sleep Apnoea

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder which can significantly impact your quality of life and overall health.

More than just snoring or disrupted sleep, it causes a feeling of unrest upon waking, daytime tiredness, poor concentration, and general fatigue.

The risk of OSA increases with excess weight, and obesity is a risk factor for OSA, creating a distressing cycle.

Weight loss surgery offers a powerful solution to improve or even cure OSA, helping you achieve better sleep.

  • After surgery, many patients reduce reliance on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines or other OSA treatments.
  • As excess weight reduces, the frequency and intensity of sleep apnoea events are lessened.
  • Sustained weight loss can lead to improved sleep quality, daytime alertness, and a decrease in symptoms associated with OSA.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight address the underlying contributing factors, such as excess adipose tissue around the neck.
