Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
If there is symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea or continous mouth breathing with daytime sleepiness then it is better to get it operated.
There are no after effects if the surgery is done well.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
