Sinuses are cavities inside a person’s skull that are situated around the eyes and nose and within the front of the face. Sometimes, the sinus system faces problems such as a thickened lining, polyps (growths), or repeated infections. Some people are born with sinuses that aren’t shaped the typical way. All of these issues can cause respiratory difficulty. Sinusitis is composed of factors such as polyps that occur when the gaps are inflamed or depending on the anatopical structure. It is a disorder that can be seen at all ages.

Procedure

This is a common procedure. Doctors insert very thin and flexible instruments called endoscopes into your nose. One instrument has a small camera lens that sends images back to a screen. That way, the doctor can see where your sinuses are blocked and guide the other instruments that gently remove polyps, scar tissue, and other.

After Surgery

Endoscopy is usually done with a local anesthetic, meaning the area will be made numb and you can be awake. You’ll likely be able to go home when it’s over. If the patient’s nose curls and aesthetic operations are to be performed, operation and discharge time varies.
