Frequent Flyers Benefit Significantly from Sinus Surgery

For frequent flyers, the air travel experience can be a challenge. One of the most common problems they face is sinusitis, which causes inflammation in the sinus cavities. This condition can lead to congestion, pain and pressure in the face, making breathing difficult and increasing the risk of developing sinus infections. However, a solution to this problem exists – sinus surgery.

How Sinus Surgery Can Benefit Frequent Flyers

Sinus surgery can provide long-lasting relief to frequent flyers who suffer from chronic sinusitis. The surgery removes the damaged tissue, opens the blocked sinuses and clears any infection or inflammation. After the procedure, patients can breathe easier and experience less facial pressure, reducing the likelihood of developing sinus infections.

Moreover, sinus surgery can help frequent flyers recover from jet lag faster. Our body’s natural sleep cycle gets thrown off when we travel across time zones. This phenomenon, known as “jet lag,” makes us tired, irritable and unable to focus. Inflamed sinuses can exacerbate these symptoms, making it harder to recover from jet lag. By clearing the sinuses through surgery, patients can recover faster and enjoy their travels without the adverse effects of jet lag.

Types of Sinus Surgery

There are two main types of sinus surgery: endoscopic sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty. The most common is endoscopic sinus surgery, which uses a thin, lit tube with a camera to look inside the sinuses. Then, the surgeon can remove the damaged tissue and open the blocked sinuses using small surgical instruments. Balloon sinuplasty is a newer, less invasive procedure that involves inserting a tiny balloon into a congested sinus cavity and inflating it. This widens the hole, letting more fluid drain out and relieving symptoms.

Finding the Right Doctor

Sinus surgery can provide significant benefits to frequent flyers suffering from chronic sinusitis. By removing the damaged tissue and clearing out the blocked sinuses, patients can breathe better, feel less pressure in their faces and get over jet lag faster.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable.
