Balloon Sinuplasty in 3 Easy Steps
First, topical anesthetics will be used to numb the sinuses. Next, a specialized endoscope is used to locate the treatment area and a small catheter with a balloon on the end is then placed there.
The balloon is gently inflated to expand the sinus passage. This opens the sinuses so when the balloon is removed, normal drainage can return.
The whole procedure takes about an hour and you should feel almost immediate relief once the procedure is over. You will be able to return to normal activities quickly and be back to work or school within 24-48 hours.
What Will Life Be Like After Balloon Sinuplasty?
The procedure itself is done right in the office, so you won’t have to deal with any unwanted hospital fees or uncomfortable hospital settings.
After Balloon Sinuplasty, you will be able to quickly take your life back from sinus pain. You should see results right after the procedure and return to normal activities after a day or two.
Some patients have even noted that the recovery from Balloon Sinuplasty was one of the easiest procedure recoveries they’ve experienced. This is because there is a low risk for side effects and complications.
After Balloon Sinuplasty You Should Experience:
- Long-lasting sinus pain relief
- Fewer trips to the doctor’s office
