Sinus Surgery with Rhinoplasty

Many of my rhinoplasty patients admit to having recurrent sinus infections and may require concomitant sinus surgery for sinusitis with their rhinoplasty.

Sinus surgery is performed endoscopically with the use of cameras through the nostril. There are no external incisions made. The recovery from sinus surgery combined with rhinoplasty does not extend your recovery greater than with rhinoplasty alone.

Combining sinus surgery with rhinoplasty is common in many of my nose job or nose surgery patients and allows patients relief from their sinus disease, improve their nasal breathing, and enhances the cosmetic appearance of their nose.
