Does anyone know anything about the AirLift procedure. From their website it looks simple, straightforward and effective. Then again all sites make their product look that way. It almost looks good to be true.

I wrote the company and it is not offered in Canada, so I would have to pay the approximately $6000 USD out of pocket.

They also said that a low BMI is not a requirement but it is up to the doctor to make the call.

It can be found at https://www.siestamedical.com.

Is this the same hyoid suspension surgery mentioned by jamievetro in the thread: Have Realistic Expectations on Surgery (http://freecpapadvice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2831&sid=06ae4953f957da3a3e3b6381aa95d520)

Sounds like they are the same surgery. And no, thank you, I'll stick with my machine and mask. :D

Ya, after a little more research I came to the same conclusion. I feel though there must be something better than a machine and mask.

Isn't there something better than hanging glass and wire on your face to see?

Or shoving a silicone "bug" in my ear to hear?
Good point.
