Seven Surgeries to Relieve Sinus Issues So You Can Breathe Better

woman hides face in hands

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

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.

Latera Implant

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.

Which Surgery is Most Suitable for Relieving Your Breathing Difficulties?

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

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
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.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. 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. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
