Sinus Corrective Surgery NJ
Often patients who initially present to Dr. Undavia for rhinoplasty evaluation also have frequent headaches and sinus pressure, and recurrent sinus infections. Patients commonly ask if the sinuses can be addressed at the same time as rhinoplasty. As a dually board certified Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Undavia is uniquely qualified to help with both the outside and inside of the nose. Taking care of the sinuses with sinus surgery at the same time as rhinoplasty or other cosmetic procedures is a very common practice and for good reason. You are already under anesthesia and adding sinus surgery will not change your recovery time significantly. Repairing your sinuses will not in any way affect your outcome from rhinoplasty. In fact, healthy sinuses can help prevent a postoperative infection following rhinoplasty. At the time of your consultation, please inform Dr. Undavia of any sinus related issues or headaches that you might be having.
What is a Sinus Infection or Sinusitis?
A sinus infection, also known as sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses. The sinuses are a series of hollow spaces in the bones around the nose. They are lined with mucous membranes, which produce mucus to moisten and protect the inside of the nose.
Symptoms of Sinusitis
The most common symptom of a sinus infection is a blocked or runny nose. Other symptoms may include facial pain, headaches, a sore throat and fever.
If you have a sinus infection, you may also experience pain in your teeth or jaw, and your lymph nodes may be swollen. Sinus infections can make it difficult to breathe through your nose and may cause you to snore at night. If the infection spreads to your eyes, you may experience redness, pain, and vision problems.
Treatment for Sinus Infections
Most sinus infections will clear up on their own within a week or two without the need for antibiotics.
