Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Palate after corrective surgery (uvulopalatoplasty) to a 75-year-old man's mouth. This operation was carried out to stop the patient snoring. The operation involves removing tissue from the soft palate, and tightening up other areas. This can stop some forms of snoring where the soft palate vibrates as the sleeping person breathes.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
