Revision Sinus Surgery
After a person undergoes initial sinus surgery to correct a nasal problem, they usually experience a great deal of relief for quite some time. However, as life continues, it’s very common for your sinus conditions to relapse, often requiring another sinus surgery. At the CENTER for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles, world-renowned sinus surgeon Babak Larian, alongside a team of experts, works to correct reoccurring sinus problems through permanent revision sinus surgery to ensure the best and most long-standing results possible.
What Is Revision Sinus Surgery?
Revision sinus surgery is a sinus procedure performed after a person has already undergone a previous surgery to correct sinus troubles. Revision sinus surgery is performed by Dr. Larian in Los Angeles using the most cutting-edge endoscopic techniques and image-guidance technology to ensure success for the patient. Through targeted endoscopic sinus surgery, or TESS, sinus problems can be overcome without the need for a long recovery as the procedure is minimally invasive. Symptoms that may be indicative of necessary revision sinus surgery include but are not limited to the following:
- Recurring sinus infections
- Extreme post-nasal drip or runny nose
- Chronic sinusitis
- Sinus headaches/pressure
- General fatigue and discomfort in the sinus cavities
A person may need revision sinus surgery if they’ve had sinus procedures performed in the past that didn’t quite solve the entire problem. Sometimes, this can be a result of visiting a surgeon who doesn’t have a high level of understanding pertaining to sinus conditions. Other reasons to undergo the procedure includes delayed complication from an initial surgery, or the development of a serious nasal infection.
If you’ve undergone one of the following, or even a combination of the procedures listed below to clear up your sinus and breathing troubles but are once again experiencing difficulties, you may be a candidate for revision sinus surgery with Babak Larian, expert sinus surgeon.
