Taking Care Post-Balloon Sinuplasty: Essential Aftercare Tips

Woman smiling and taking a deep breath If you’re considering balloon sinuplasty at Daneshrad Clinic to treat your chronic sinusitis, you’re on the path to breathing easier. Balloon sinuplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves chronic sinus issues with less downtime than traditional surgery. However, proper aftercare is crucial to ensure a smooth recovery. 

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Payam Daneshrad, a Board-Certified Otolaryngologist, Daneshrad Clinic has established a reputation for excellence in Santa Monica and Torrance, California. 

Dr. Daneshrad focuses on utilizing the most effective treatments with minimal surgical pain and recovery time. He and his team of exceptional physician assistants, nurses, and staff prioritize patient-centered care. And that care doesn’t stop once your procedure is over: they’ll ensure you have everything you need for post-procedure care, too. 

Immediate Aftercare and Recovery for Balloon Sinuplasty

You may experience some congestion, mild pain, or fatigue after your balloon sinuplasty procedure. The good news is that these aftereffects are usually temporary and manageable. You can expect to return to your daily activities within 24-48 hours. 

However, it’s still important to take the proper steps to make sure you feel your best as soon as possible. Follow these aftercare steps closely:

  • Rest and Elevate: Keep your head elevated to reduce swelling, even when sleeping, if needed. Rest and relax for the first 24-48 hours.
  • Medication: Take prescribed medications, including pain relievers and antibiotics, as your medical team advises. Over-the-counter pain medication should be enough to manage any discomfort.
  • Nasal Care: Use saline sprays or rinses to keep your nasal passages moist and clean, which facilitates healing. Dr. Daneshrad will provide you with a specific hygiene routine to follow. 

Managing Symptoms and Activities

Avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and swimming during the first week. This period is crucial for your sinuses to heal without additional strain. If you experience any unusual symptoms, like severe pain or bleeding, contact Daneshrad Clinic immediately.
