Sleep apnea occurs when you stop breathing while you sleep. This is caused by the muscles relaxing and gravity pulling your airway closed. The short-term suffocation that develops creates excessive stress on the body, which can lead to heart conditions, as well as mood change, weight gain, fatigue, hypertension, and memory loss. There are many snoring or sleep apnea solutions available, varying from surgeries, such as adenoidectomy, maxillofacial surgery, or a tonsillectomy, as well as the use of a CPAP device. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, CA, we concentrate on producing custom-fit night guards to help our sleep apnea patients keep their airway open while sleeping. Dr. Husam Elias is proud to offer this simple, comfortable, and reliable support that will help you achieve better health and well-being.

Dr. Elias uses what is referred to as oral appliance therapy (OAT) to treat sleep apnea, which can be quite an effective treatment for sleep apnea. It's a custom-made device that fits in your mouth at night. It can be compared to a mouth guard for sports or even a retainer. The principal difference is that rather than protecting your teeth from harm, it gently places the jaw into a forward position to continue to keep your airway open.

If oral appliance therapy isn't an option, you should consider a nasal CPAP machine. CPAP machines are worn while you sleep and deliver pressurized oxygen through a mask that helps limit the obstruction of the nasal passage.

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is a surgical option that removes excess tissue in the throat. The back of the soft palate and the throat often contain extra tissue. Once removed, the airway may open, making breathing easier. Some cases may require a UPP combined with jaw surgery to reposition the jaw and widen the airway.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
