About Balloon Sinuplasty

Balloon sinuplasty is an effective and safe procedure used to treat conditions that affect the paranasal sinuses and cause unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms. As a less invasive procedure than a traditional sinus surgery, a balloon sinuplasty does not require anesthesia or the removal of bone or tissue from the nose.

At Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, board-certified otolaryngologist & head and neck surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman performs balloon sinuplasty for patients suffering from a variety of sinus conditions. He provides comprehensive management and treatment of all conditions affecting the paranasal sinuses, including chronic sinus infections, nasal polyps, allergic fungal sinusitis, and Samter’s triad (aspirin sensitivity). In addition, he administers treatment for masses and tumors affecting the paranasal sinuses, including inverting papilloma (IP), juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) and other neoplasms.

In healthy patients with mild to moderate sinus problems, Dr. Saman performs in-office balloon sinuplasty for optimal results with minimal discomfort and downtime. In more advanced conditions, endoscopic sinus surgery under general anesthesia may be considered.

Our Surgical Approach

At Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer the most advanced and modern techniques in sinus balloon to get rid of your sinus problems, and with no general anesthesia or downtime. Balloon sinuplasty is a simple, in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes, requires no general anesthesia, and is completely comfortable. Allergies and chronic sinus problems can lead to the frequent use of antibiotics, chronic headaches, nasal stuffiness, and drainage. Usually, a CT scan is needed to assess the drainage of the sinuses. Sometimes, medications such as nasal sprays and steroids can help resolve the problem. Other times surgery may be needed. In mild and moderate cases we prefer using the balloon system to improve sinus drainage.  

What to Expect

Recovery from a balloon sinuplasty takes about one day as opposed to the 3 – 5 days that are required for a traditional sinus surgery. Dr. Saman will provide the appropriate aftercare instructions following the appointment. Patients typically do not require pain medication, but patients can use over-the-counter pain medicine if needed. The results from a balloon sinuplasty typically last for years, but this may vary depending on the severity of the patient's condition.
