Sinus Surgery

New York NY Plastic Surgeon

The sinuses are cavities in the skull that are lined with tissue that warms, humidifies, and purifies the air that we breathe. The sinuses are constantly moist, creating fluid that purifies the nose and prevents infections. When the sinuses are infected, mucous that is thick and in much greater quantity is produced; it can be green or yellow, draining from the nose and/or coughed up. A sinus infection is typically a very miserable infection that causes severe headaches, facial pain, a constant feeling of congestion, and even toothaches. The first course of action for those with a sinus infection is antibiotic treatment. Most people find the relief that they need through oral antibiotics, overcome the infection, and are fine. However, there are some people who suffer from repeated sinus infections and a failure of antibiotics requires them to take another course of action to achieve the relief that they desperately need.

Dr. Maurice Khosh in New York is an expert in performing sinus surgery. Using endoscopic cameras and micro-instruments, he can work inside the nose and sinus cavities to help patients overcome chronic sinus infections. Sinus surgery can restore the natural drainage of the sinuses so that repeated infections do not occur. During sinus surgery, it is often necessary to correct a deviated septum in order to gain access to the posterior part of the nose and relieve nasal blockage. Sinus surgery is considered to be an outpatient surgical operation, with recovery in about about a week’s time or up to ten days. Patients should expect some mild to moderate pain in the nose and sinuses for two or three days, but recovery is considered to be minor in comparison to many other surgeries.

If you are suffering from chronic sinus infections that are leaving you miserable, please know that you do not have to continue in your suffering. When medications are not effective at eliminating your infection and preventing it from recurring, please contact Dr. Maurice Khosh, MD, FACS in New York, New York. We will be happy to give you more information about sinus surgery and schedule a consultation.

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

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.
Leah G.
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.
