Overview

Sinus surgery is an advanced cosmetic procedure that removes blockages or cleanses the pathways of the sinus to restore natural functionalities. Abnormal sinus structure or infections can result in an abnormal growth in the sinus and the surgical procedure is initiated when the alternative treatments and procedures fail to restore the normal functions of the sinus.

The procedure of sinus surgery

Sinuses can be described as a type of cavities that are found between the nose and eyes in the front portion in the skull. The cavities produce mucus that keeps the nasal passage moisturized. It helps to filter unwanted particles, dirt, microorganisms and pollutants from entering the nasal passage. Sinus problems may occur from various conditions like viruses, infections, allergies and surgery is required when one experiences discomfort and challenges in breathing.

Commonly there are three different surgical procedures available for the patients and these are Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS), Caldwell-Luc operation, Image-Guided Surgery. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery is the most popular surgical produce that is performed with an endoscope. The tool is made of fibre-optic tube and it is inserted into the nose of the patients to reach up to the openings of sinuses. Once it is passed through the nose, doctors can pass surgical instruments and micro telescopes and clean the nasal passage. Individuals may experience mild swellings and a little discomfort in the nose and it will be alright after a few days.

The Caldwell-Luc operation is initiated when the doctors discover an abnormal growth of obstructive sinus tissue in the nasal passage. The procedure creates a path between the maxillary sinus, a cavity underneath the eye and the nose and improves the natural functions by removing the growth. Doctors make small incisions in the upper jaw to reach up to the sinus and the entire procedure is performed under general or local anaesthesia.

Image-guided surgery is comparably newer than the conventional endoscopic sinus surgery. The surgeons use a near-three dimensional mapping system to ensure better results and the procedure is selected for a severe form of sinus blockage. Doctors may rely on CT scans and infrared signals and they will tell you about the most suitable surgical procedure.
