We Fix All Types of Nose Problems in Chicago

p-drwiesmanAt The Art of Rhinoplasty, our talented Chicago cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Gary Wiesman, offers so much more than a “nose job.” His skilled hands are able to accurately and expertly assist patients with a wide range of nose problems from a deviated septum to sinus dilation. When it comes to treating nasal concerns, there’s no better option than a facial cosmetic surgeon who is also a board-certified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat doctor). Having performed countless facial surgeries over 25 years in practice, Dr. Wiesman is able to provide the most skilled, comfortable, state-of-the-art surgical care for any type of nose problem in Chicago. If you feel your nose is too big, too little, too sharp or curved, or if you have problems breathing through your nose or experience frequent congestion or sinus infections, contact Dr. Wiesman at The Art of Rhinoplasty.

Types of Nose Problems We Correct

  • Deviated septum – the treatment for deviated septum (the separation between nostrils) is known as septoplasty. This procedure may be necessary to correct a deviated nasal septum – a displacement of the bone and cartilage that divides your two nostrils. During septoplasty, your nasal septum is straightened and repositioned in the middle of your nose to help alleviate breathing difficulties.
  • In-office balloon sinus dilation – one of the most innovative treatment options available, balloon sinus dilation expands the nasal passages to treat symptoms of sinusitis (chronic sinus infection). This in-office procedure uses a balloon to gently open and reshape nasal passages.
  • Chronic nasal congestion treatment – one solution for chronic congestion is turbinate reduction. Turbinates are tissues in the nose that filter air as we breathe. When turbinates become enlarged due to allergies, infections, or irritation, patients typically receive treatment using antihistamines or antibiotics. When turbinates do not respond to this treatment, surgical reduction may be necessary. The surgery removes the submucosal tissue leaving the mucosal layer to filter and humidify air. The procedure uses radio waves to remove tissue inside the turbinate. The procedure can be performed in less than an hour.
  • Removal of nasal polyps – nasal polyps are typically not cancerous, but they can be painful and obstruct breathing. In some cases, polyps can be reduced in size using medication. For those polyps that are not responsive to medicinal therapy, a polypectomy (removal of the polyp) may be necessary.
  • Adenoid surgery – typically performed on children, adenoidectomy is the removal of the small adenoid glands. These glands help fight ear, nose, and throat infections, but often become inflamed or infected themselves – requiring removal. Most commonly, adenoids are removed as part of a tonsillectomy.

Find Lasting Relief from Sinusitis with In-Office Balloon Sinus Dilation from Dr. Gary Wiesman

August 22, 2014

476282787Sinusitis is a potentially serious inflammatory sinus condition that affects more than 31 million men and women in America.  This affliction costs us approximately $1 billion on over-the-counter treatments and $150 million on prescription medications every year. If you suffer from sinusitis, you know how it can negatively affect your life on a daily basis,as well as how difficult it can be to find real relief that lasts. At the Wiesman Institute in Chicago, IL, board-certified otolaryngologist Dr. Gary G. Wiesman specializes in helping patients just like you reclaim their lives, their comfort, and their health with in-office balloon sinus dilation.

Benefits of Balloon Sinus Dilation

Balloon sinus dilation, performed right here in our office, may help significantly reduce the likelihood that surgery will be needed in cases of acute sinusitis. The process involves the strategic placement of a small balloon within the sinus cavities; when the balloon is carefully inflated, the sinus pathways are gently opened. This quick, convenient procedure effectively reshapes the internal anatomy of the nose and the sinuses, promoting drainage that is more natural, easier breathing, and relief from uncomfortable pressure.

Patients who undergo this minimally invasive procedure report substantial relief from their sinusitis symptoms beginning the very same day. Other conditions commonly treated with balloon sinus dilation include:

  • Mild to moderate deviation of septum
  • Isolated and multi-sinus disease
  • Maxillary accessory ostia
  • Disease of the frontal, sphenoid, maxillary, or maxillary and anterior ethmoid sinuses
  • Nasal polyps caused by chronic sinusitis

Dr. Wiesman will take the time to talk with you about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and any other health conditions you may have in order to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and an effective and sustainable treatment plan.
