Why Is Nasal and Sinus Surgery Performed?
The nasal passageways and sinuses are responsible for filtering the air we breathe before it goes into the lungs. They also regulate the temperature of the air that goes into our bodies, increase the resonance of speech, and protect vital structures in the face.
Since the nasal and sinus pathways deal with a lot of contaminants, they can become infected or blocked with different issues. The symptoms can become chronic and may feel as simple as a stuffy nose or worse, manifesting in the form of changes in hearing, headaches, and sleep apnea.
Rhinoplasty can be performed to improve breathing. The procedure involves changing the shape of the nose to remove breathing issues. Functional rhinoplasty can change the nasal bones, cartilage, and/or soft tissue, depending on the surgeon’s recommendation.
Breathing can be affected by a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates. The septum is the cartilage wall at the lower part of the nose. It divides the nasal cavity in the middle. This wall can be bent to one side and block airflow. It can also be bent in an S-shape, which blocks both nasal passages.
Bony structures inside the nose that are known as turbinates can also block the pathway of air. These turbinates grow or decrease in size depending on how the nose reacts to allergens.
Both the septum and turbinates can be reduced to allow a better passageway for air.
Sinus surgery is a procedure that clears sinus blockages to remove infections or tumors. There are also cases when surgery is necessary to improve a patient’s abnormal sinus structure.
Before getting a referral for sinus surgery, most patients try non-surgical treatments like antibiotics, nasal sprays, or oral steroids. If these treatments do not result in improvements in the patient, sinus surgery can be performed.
The procedure can treat sinusitis, nasal polyps, inflammation, tumor, and other types of infections that affect a patient’s breathing.
Allergies are triggered when our immune system becomes hypersensitive. Our nose is no stranger to allergens due to its filtering system, which encounters many allergens.
Allergic rhinitis is a condition where the mucous lining of the nose produces too much mucus to remove the allergen in the nose. Our clinic offers allergy management treatment plans to help patients overcome allergic rhinitis.
