The tonsils are two lymphoid tissues that located on both sides of the back of the throat.
 
Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the tonsils.

Tonsil surgery is a surgical procedure performed for nearly 3,000 years. Infections, such as sleep apnea and cancer diagnosis can be so many different reasons, depending on.

Tonsillectomy Techniques

The techniques of Tonsillectomy can be broadly divided into 2 major categories: extracapsular (total tonsillectomy, subcapsular) and intracapsular (partial tonsillectomy). Intracapsular is also known as “subtotal,” and this procedure is referred to as tonsillotomy in some literatures (Source: A Review of Tonsillectomy Techniques and ...).
Tonsillectomy techniques can be summarized as follows:
- Dissection and snare method
- Electrocautery
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Harmonic scalpel
- Thermal Welding
- Carbon dioxide laser
- Microdebrider

Injectable local analgesics during surgery. Anterior and posterior plica tonsillaris can be sutured to reduce the risk of bleeding and pain.

During tonsillectomy, in methods of tissue damage in tonsillary fossa is less, it is even less post-operative pain.

I generally prefer thermal welding or tissue welding method to mimimize the extratonsillar tissue damage.

(Perhaps it is more scientific to write "less painful" instead of "painless" as the slogan here!)

In the following four videos, tonsillectomy operations with Thermal Welding Device are seen. After surgery, there is no evidence of burn injury outside the tonsils and tonsillar bed, and blood loss is seen to be negligible during the operation.

The first 4 hours after surgery, oral feeding is not done. First is fed with ice cream or cold milk desserts. After this period, oral feeding with liquid food are planned. It is very important to drink water at frequent intervals.

Oral solid, hard, sharp, spicy, hot and extremely sour foods should be eaten. 5th day post-operative pain becomes maximum. Usually the first 7-9 days after the pain starts to decrease and disappear.

The first 10 days are at risk of bleeding. 3 days after surgery, ear pain hit can be seen at night. Simple pain relievers available the first week. Drinking of  water at night can accelerate healing. Hydration is the most important factor that increases post-operative recovery.
