What are the benefits of balloon sinuplasty?

If you suffer from sinusitis, you are probably living with headaches, sore throat, facial pain, nasal congestion and lack of energy. This happens due to the inflammation within your sinuses which could lead to an infection. Thankfully, you do not have to live with these symptoms and there are many procedures out there that can help you. One popular procedure is balloon sinuplasty.

When does your doctor recommend balloon sinuplasty?

If your sinusitis symptoms have lasted more than 3 months, your doctor is most likely to recommend a balloon sinuplasty procedure. Until a few years ago, the only option patients had was medication or an invasive surgery. Surgeons and patients alike have now realized the benefits of balloon sinuplasty over the traditional surgical methods. It is a faster procedure with a short recovery period which allows you to return to your normal activities within a few days. Any pain or bleeding associated with the method is also minimal.

Most patients hesitate opting for an invasive surgery which is not only time consuming but also leaves you with a long recovery period. Balloon sinuplasty is an easy procedure and done under a local anesthesia which numbs out your nose. If you choose this procedure, it also means you reduce your future healthcare costs.

Is this procedure for you?

Your doctor recommends balloon sinuplasty to you depending on certain factors. These include the intensity of the facial pain you suffer from and the sinus symptoms you are currently facing.

Balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis

Balloon sinuplasty has been accepted as an effective and proven treatment for alleviating symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Sinusitis worsen your nasal breathing issues and balloon sinuplasty has shown to bring a vast improvement in such symptoms. All your nasal obstruction issues arise from the sinuses which could include a deviated septum or an enlarged nasal turbinate. When you visit your ENT, the first step will be to determine the cause of your sinus problems so that the correct treatment option can be chosen.

Due to its less invasive nature, more and more patients and doctors across the globe are opting for balloon sinuplasty. It will help you enhance the quality of your life as well.
