There are so many irritating symptoms when it comes to allergies—itchy watery eyes, continuous sneezing, and a general mental fog are just some of the issues that face allergies patients. Allergies aren't just seasonal either, for some people suffer from allergies all year long.
As if these issues weren't enough, allergies can sometimes also cause chronic sinusitis, an incredibly uncomfortable condition that is caused by an inflammation of the sinuses. Fortunately, here at Ear, Nose & Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery Center (with two locations in Fredericksburg, and one in Stafford, VA), our team of ENT physicians can administer a Sinuplasty to alleviate your sinusitis issues.
More about sinuplasty treatment
About 28 million Americans suffer from chronic sinusitis today. If you are one of them and are tired of dealing with the inflamed and swollen sinuses associated with the condition, a sinuplasty can alleviate these uncomfortable symptoms for at least two months. A sinus surgery in which your surgeons use balloons to expand sinus openings, a sinuplasty is similar to an angioplasty, in which a balloon is used to open blocked blood vessels.
During treatment, your doctor in Stafford or Fredericksburg uses a saline solution to remove mucus build up and provide symptom relief. Performed after the administration of local anesthetic for a pain-free experience, sinuplasty provides a host of procedural advantageous as compared to conventional sinus surgery, including:
- Less trauma to surrounding tissue
- Preservation of the natural sinus openings
- Less recovery time
