What is Sinus surgery?
Sinus surgery is a procedure that aims to open up your sinus pathways and clear blockages. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within your skull that are located around your eyes, nose, and front of your face. This procedure is done when antibiotics and other medicines have not been successful.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sinus surgery is performed under local or general anaesthesia therefore you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. It is a simple procedure with minimal discomfort and complications. Your doctor will prescribe you painkillers that can be taken after surgery to combat the pain.
You should be able to return to work or school in about a week, and to your routine in about three weeks. However, this varies depending on your job and the extent of your surgery. After your surgery, you will need to visit your doctor regularly for follow-ups.
After having sinus surgery:
● You can resume your normal diet and include bland, gut-friendly food like yoghurt to prevent digestive issues.
● Avoid eating hot and spicy food, as they may increase your nasal blood flow.
● Drink plenty of fluids.
Sleeping on your side or stomach is not advised for several weeks following the procedure because it puts undue pressure on your nose. Resting on your back in an elevated position relieves congestion and reduces swelling following Sinus surgery.
Sinus surgery includes enlarging the openings between your sinuses and the inside of your nose so that air and drainage can pass through. It could entail the removal of infected sinus tissue, bone, or polyps.
Before resorting to surgery, your doctor will try other treatments and procedures. This includes medicines and lifestyle modifications to help relieve sinus infections. If these do not work, then surgery is performed. It is also necessary in cases where you have some defect in your bone structure that can be corrected only by surgical intervention.
Sinus surgery expands the natural drainage pathway of the sinuses, lowering the risk of blockages that can cause acute and chronic sinus infections, as well as sinus headaches. These conditions can be debilitating, with symptoms such as headaches and facial pain, a runny or blocked nose, and bad breath.
If you continue to put off treatment, your condition may worsen and you might risk any complications associated with emergency surgeries that are higher than planned elective surgeries. You can also develop comorbidities or multiple disorders if you prolong your surgery. You can avoid these problems by seeking help as soon as possible.
