Sinus issues can be very bothersome, making breathing, sleeping and daily life hard. Fortunately, several surgeries can relieve sinus issues and help you breathe better, all of which renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Maurice M. Khosh performs in New York.
A Brief Overview of Sinus Operations for Breathing Enhancement
Dr. Khosh offers seven kinds of sinus surgeries at his New York office to treat his patients’ breathing issues. These include the following:
Surgical correction of a deviated septum is known as septoplasty. The septum is the thin wall that divides the nasal passages. When it is deviated, it can cause breathing difficulties, snoring and sinus infections. The surgery straightens the septum, allowing for better airflow.
Nasal Valve Repair
The nasal valve controls airflow and is the narrowest part of the nasal passage. When it is narrowed or collapsed, it can cause difficulty breathing. Nasal valve repair surgery restores the nasal valve’s function, improving breathing.
Sinus surgery is a procedure that removes blockages and clears the sinus passages. It is often performed when medication and other non-surgical treatments fail to provide relief. The surgery can also correct structural abnormalities that contribute to sinus issues.
Balloon Sinus Surgery
Minimally invasive balloon sinus surgery involves inflating a tiny balloon inside the nose to clear the sinuses. The balloon is inserted through the nostril and inflated, which widens the sinus opening and improves airflow.
Entellus Balloon Dilation
Entellus balloon dilation is another minimally invasive procedure that uses a balloon to open up blocked sinus passages. Recovery from endoscopic sinus surgery is much quicker than that from open sinus surgery, and the process is typically performed under local anesthesia.
Septum Perforation Repair
Breathing problems, nosebleeds and sinus infections are all symptoms of a perforated septum. Septum perforation repair surgery closes the hole in the septum, improving breathing and reducing symptoms.
The Latera implant is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat nasal valve collapse. The implant is placed in the nasal sidewall and supports the nasal valve, allowing for improved airflow.
