sinus-surgery-englewood-njSinus surgery improves the drainage of the sinuses by removing the blockage and draining the mucus in the nose. The most common reason for doing a sinus surgery is for inflammation (swelling) of the nose and sinuses that do not improve sufficiently with medical treatment.

Infection, nasal polyps (non-cancerous swelling of the nasal/sinus lining), allergies or irritants, and other things may cause this inflammation of the nose and sinuses.

Procedure

Dr. Tadros specializes in sinus surgery for her patients and may perform the following procedures:

  • Septoplasty
  • Balloon Sinuplasty
  • Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

As a distinguished nasal surgery specialist and published author on topics such as balloon sinuplasty and sinus surgery, Dr. Tadros has proven to be an expert in aesthetic septoplasty and FESS.

Septoplasty

A septoplasty is a procedure performed by best surgeon Dr. Monica Tadros, is aimed to correct for a deviated septum. For many individuals, surgery to correct for both functional abnormalities and nasal shape is best indicated.

The nasal septum is the most critical part of the support structure that holds up our nose.

The septum is comprised of cartilage and bone that divides the right and left nostrils in the front and extends all the way back to the sinuses to form our foundation. All of the other cartilages and bones that form our tip, nasal bridge and nasal shape attach to this key structure.

Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) is a practical and trusted solution for those suffering through sinusitis and not responding to other medications and are experiencing a sinus infection. This procedure has evolved into one of the most elegant advancements in treating chronic and reoccurring sinusitis. Unlike traditional sinus surgery, Balloon Sinuplasty requires no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)

The nasal endoscope has revolutionized sinusitis surgery. FESS involves the insertion of the endoscope, a very thin fiber-optic tube, into the nose for a direct visual examination of the openings into the sinuses. Dr. Tadros then removes abnormal and obstructive tissues.

The surgical procedure is performed entirely through the nostrils, leaving no external scars. There is little swelling and only mild discomfort.

Sinus surgery is performed in Dr. Tadros’ office. The advantage of the procedure is that the surgery is less extensive, there is often less removal of normal tissues, and can frequently be performed on an outpatient basis.

Recovery

After your surgery, patients will usually have nasal packing. Ten days after the procedure, nasal cleaning may be recommended to prevent crusting. It may take up to 3 to 5 days to fully recover from your nasal surgery in New Jersey. Patients should refrain from activities that increase heart rate or blood pressure such as running, exercising, or other similar activities.

What is Sinus Surgery?

Sinus surgery improves the drainage of your nasal passageways and helps treat sinus disease. The surgical procedure is performed to enlarge the sinuses to improve ventilation and help you breathe better. This is the best option for people with chronic sinus infections or people with abnormal sinus structures.

What is Sinus Surgery Called?

Sinus surgery is usually called endoscopic sinus surgery, however, there are other types, including functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), image-guided surgery, balloon sinuplasty, and Caldwell-Luc. Talk to your ENT about which surgery type best fits your needs.

How Long Does Sinus Surgery Take?

Sinus procedure takes about 2 to 4 hours depending on the severing of sinus blockage. You can go home on the same day of your surgery. Your sinus surgeon provides you nasal packing and pain medication. The pain after surgery is usually dull and can be treated with over the counter pain medication.

Is Sinus Surgery Painful?

Sinus surgery is performed with the use of anesthesia so you will not feel any pain. If needed, your sinus surgeon will prescribe you pain medication to alleviate the discomfort after surgery. You may have some swelling and bruising after the surgery. The doctor will also provide you with nasal packing.

What to expect during sinus surgery?

Nasal surgery is aimed to remove anything that blocks the drainage pathways of the sinuses. This can include thin pieces of bone, nasal polyps, damaged or swollen tissues or mucous membranes.

If you want to get more in-depth information about sinus surgery cost and the procedure itself, do not wait any longer and schedule an appointment with our best-in-class facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Monica Tadros.

How to get ready for a sinus treatment?

As part of the preparation process for nasal surgery, Dr. Monica Tadros recommends avoiding over-the-counter medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Additionally, you should begin to irrigate the sinus passages with a saline spray.
