Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty
Rather than undergoing a surgical procedure, with the Balloon Sinuplasty, you can experience relief without the removal of bone or tissue. The sinus passages are widened by the inflated balloon, without the need to remove tissue with a scalpel. The procedure involves far less physical trauma, no need to stay in the hospital, a fast recovery, and minimal post-treatment pain. The risk of side effects or complications is negligible. Patients who undergo a Balloon Sinuplasty experience a dramatic improvement and have no adverse effects.
What Is the Recovery Time After a Balloon Sinuplasty?
The recovery time from this procedure is extremely swift, requiring only 24 to 48 hours for most patients, rather than the two weeks needed to recover from sinus surgery. It is recommended that all vigorous activities, such as workouts, sports, or jogging, are avoided for one week. Sleep with the head elevated and avoid blowing your nose for a day or two. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication is typically all that is necessary to stay comfortable.
