Sinus Surgery

Sinus Surgery - Overview

Sinus surgery is a procedure in which your doctor seeks to eliminate obstructions and open the sinuses’ passageways. This is a treatment option for persons who have recurring sinus infections, as well as those who have aberrant sinus anatomy or abnormal growths in their sinuses.

When other treatments and procedures have failed, sinus surgery is often used as a last resort. Sinus surgery is a relatively painless procedure. It’s a simple treatment with few side effects.

Sinus Surgery - Symptoms

Sinus refers to an obstruction or swelling of the nasal sinuses. It’s also known as a Sinus Infection.

The following are some of the signs and symptoms of sinusitis:

  • There’s a lot of pressure around the nose, eyes, and forehead.
  • a runny nose
  • Nasal drainage that is thick and brownish
  • Coughing
  • Congestion and headaches in the head
  • Nasal drip with a bad taste
  • Changes in hearing or clogged ears

Sinus Surgery - Pre-Procedure

Your doctor will feel for tenderness in your nose and face, as well as inspect inside your nose, prior to surgery.

A few tests will be performed by your doctor to diagnose chronic sinusitis. These tests may include:

  • Imaging tests are performed.
  • Taking a look into your sinuses.
  • An allergy test is performed.
  • a few samples of your sinus and nasal discharge

Sinus Surgery – During Procedure

The goal of sinus surgery is to alleviate your symptoms and reduce the number of infections you have. If they keep coming back, there’s a good possibility there’s something wrong with your nasal cavity that can only be fixed by surgery.

You have a few treatment options if you decide to have sinus surgery. Endoscopy and balloon Sinoplasty are two of them.

Endoscopy: Your doctor will introduce a very thin and flexible instrument called an endoscope into your nose during this operation.

A small camera lens on one of the instruments will send images back to a screen. Your doctor will be able to see where your sinuses are obstructed and direct the other equipment that will gently remove polyps, scar tissue, and other.

Because your doctor will not make any cuts in your skin during this operation, your recovery will be quicker and smoother. This surgery is normally done using a local anaesthetic, which means the area will be numb and you will be awake during the operation. When it’s over, you’ll most likely be able to return home. Balloon Sinoplasty: If your sinuses don’t require anything removed, you might be a good candidate for this newer type of surgery.

A small tube is inserted into your nose by your doctor during this surgery. A little balloon is fastened to one end of it. The doctor will then inflate the balloon after guiding it to the obstructed location inside your nose. This helps to unclog the airway so that your sinuses can drain more effectively and you won’t be so congested.

Sinus Surgery - Post-Procedure

You may require nasal packing depending on the scope of the surgery. Following surgery, your doctor will insert a gauze-like material in your nasal cavity to absorb blood or other fluids. At your next follow-up appointment, your doctor will remove them.

Following are some recommendations from your doctor following your surgery:

For a while, sleep with your head up, possibly with the help of an extra pillow. You should refrain from blowing your nose for about a week. When you sneeze, try to keep your mouth open as much as possible. This will relieve some of the pressure in your sinuses. It will take a few days following the surgery for you to feel better and have fewer symptoms.

Sinus Surgery - Risk & Complications

There are a few hazards associated with this operation. Tissue damage and infection are the most typical side effects of this medication. Injury to the brain or eyes is a more serious problem that can occur, but it is uncommon.

TAs with any operation, you should always discuss the risks and advantages of any treatment with your doctor first.
