When the sinus passages become blocked or constricted, sinusitis or infection can occur. Acute sinusitis causes mucus drainage, headaches, fatigue and other symptoms that can be treated with medications and home remedies. However, if continued inflammation and blockages occur, this leads to chronic or ongoing sinus infections. When other treatments are ineffective, sinus surgery may be needed to get relief. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics performs sinus surgery to open the nasal and sinus passages for patients with chronic sinusitis.

The goal of any sinus surgery to treat chronic sinusitis is to open the sinus passages to reduce the chance of continued infections. There can be polyps, thickened tissue and other nasal obstructions that restrict the sinus passages and result in ongoing infections. Sinus surgery is done endoscopically or with balloon sinuplasty for a minimally-invasive approach. For severe sinusitis problems, traditional sinus surgery may be needed with internal incisions to enlarge the airways.

Combining Sinus and Nose Surgery

Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who performs both functional and cosmetic nose surgeries. When severe sinus issues are present and a patient also wants a cosmetic change to their nose, both procedures can be performed at the same time. Combining both procedures into one surgery can reduce the trauma to the nose and patient.

If you have severe sinus problems and want to get relief, sinus surgery could be the right option for you. Dr. Linkov performs sinus surgery on its own or in combination with rhinoplasty at our practice in Manhattan. Contact City Facial Plastics to schedule your appointment with Dr. Linkov to discuss your nose surgery options to give you relief from chronic sinusitis.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
