Meet Dr. Jason Hess

Plastic surgery is my passion.  I strive to provide uncompromising quality and lasting results.  Plastic surgery is an ever evolving field, and I'm excited to practice the most current concepts in evidence based medicine.  Our practice is driven primarily by personal referral, and we pride ourselves on treating patients as though they were our own family. 

Your Consultation

Consultations are a great opportunity to meet and discuss surgical and non-surgical options. Many truths, myths and misconceptions are disseminated via the internet and modern media with regard to plastic surgery.  A candid meeting can be informative and instrumental in deciding whether plastic surgery is the right choice.

Member Response:

The correction for snoring depends on the site of obstruction. Some causes respond to surgery. Other cases are not repairable, unfortunately. Non-surgical therapy may include a mouthpiece to advance the mandible and open the airway. A CPAP machine (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) also works by keeping constant low pressure in the airway and maintaining a relaxed airway open while a person is sleeping. ENT doctors sometimes treat snoring with a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. UPPP (Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) is also employed by ENT doctors to remodel the palatal mucosa. Other doctors have suggested palatal implants to create more stability in the palate. I have no experience with this method. A deviated septum is rarely a cause of snoring, but may also cause snoring or obstruction. In my opinion, a good exam and intranasal evaluation is the first place to begin.
