Functional nose surgery (Concha and Bone Operations), Polysomnography (Sleep Test), Painless, No Bleeding Tonsillectomy with Thermal Welding Technology.
Nose aesthetic surgery, also known as “Rhinoplasty” is one of the most common plastic surgery operations. It changes the shape of the nose in terms of aesthetic concerns and also makes the patient breathe better. Rhinoplasty recovery is the final part of the rhinoplasty operation. The longness of that time varies from patient to patient. After your rhinoplasty operation, you are requested to follow some medical instructions given by your surgeon. To quicken the recovery, you should completely carry out these instructions. The instructions are very important to achieve a good result. In three weeks, you will be able to start working again.
Septum deviation or in its other name, nasal bone curvature is a cartilage and bone in your nose. A septum deviation occurs when the thin barricade between your nasal passages is displayed to one side. If a deviated septum is severe, it can block one side of the nose and that can cause less quality breathing.
If your deviated septum is more severe, it may affect your breathing, cause headaches, or lead to infections. Some of the symptoms of septum deviation are listed below:
Dacryocystorhinostomy surgery is a surgical treatment method for the condition called “block tear duck”. A blocked tear duct causes your tears not to drain normally. Anatomic problems, tumor obstructions, and nose traumas are among the causes of blocked tear duct. Most blocked tear duct conditions are correctable but treatment depends on the age of the patient and the cause of the blocked tear duct.
Symptoms of blocked tear duck are varied. Some of them are including:
Endoscopic sinus surgery, also called functional endoscopic sinus surgery is minimally invasive surgery for sinus conditions. Surgeons use nasal endoscopes to relieve your sinus symptoms without making incisions on your nose. These endoscopes are including thin lenses and lights.
If you have a chronic sinus infection and your doctor provides you with endoscopic sinus surgery, you may consider having it. Average endoscopic sinus surgery is about two hours long but that depends on the patient’s condition. Most people go back to work in a week and in two weeks can continue most daily life activities.
Along with snoring, one of the most common sleep disorders is a condition called sleep apnea. During your sleep, it can cause your breath to stop many times. The main reason for that is the muscles in the throat. Sleep apnea decreases your sleep quality and that stops you from enjoying all your daily life activities.
You can understand your situation by consulting a medical expert. Then, he or she can decide which procedure will fit best for you.
Tonsils are a great part of our immune system on the throat. They are like a pair of soldiers fighting against infections at the gate of the body. However, after early childhood, our body can fight against infections without tonsils. In addition, tonsils may cause throat infections, obstructive sleep apnea, and tonsilitis. That’s why tonsillectomies are carried out by surgeons usually in early childhood. But, as a parent, you may concern about how painful can tonsillectomy is.
There is a new technology in tonsillectomy, called “Thermal Welding” that provides painless and bleeding-free surgery. This procedure is also known as “painless tonsillectomy”.
Otology and neurotology are the fields that focus on the treatment of all diseases of the outer, middle, inner ear, and central auditory tract. Babies and children have more risk than adults to have an ear infection. Several ear conditions might need surgery. Some ear diseases and disorders can be itemized as below:
The prominent ear is a common ear disease that the ears stick out from the head more than average. Otoplasty or in another name, cosmetic ear surgery is a procedure in which the surgeon changes the shape, size, and position of the patient’s ears.
If your ears stick out from your head more than average, or if your ears are misshapen after an injury, or as a birth defect, you may consider having an otoplasty. The procedure typically takes two hours. Your surgeon will tell you how long it will take to go back to daily activities after the surgery.
Tympanoplasty is a surgery in which the surgeon treats the ruptured eardrum of the patient. A ruptured eardrum has a hole in its tissue and that hole keeps the eardrum from vibrating. This might cause serious ear problems and can affect your hearing.
Firstly, as a non-surgical treatment, antibiotics and ear drops are suggested by your doctor. If these treatment methods can not heal your ear problem, then tympanoplasty may be considered.
There are different types of tymapanoplasty:
According to your personal health data and condition, your medical expert will decide which one is most suitable for you.
Tonsillectomy is a very common surgical procedure, especially in childhood. In this procedure, the surgeon removes the patient’s tonsils. The main reasons tonsillectomy is done are tonsil infections and sleep apnea.
Adenoidectomy is a surgery in which the surgeon removes your child’s adenoid glands. Infections and allergies cause adenoids enlarged or swollen and as a result of that, your child may have difficulty in breathing.
Ear tube insertion is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon inserts small, hollow cylinders into the patient’s eardrum. Surgeons usually use ear tubes in patients who have middle ear infections that resisted treatment.
Head and neck surgery or “Otolaryngology” in medical terms, is a surgical procedure in which the surgeons focus on the ears, nose, and throat. In this procedure, specialists train medicine and surgery together. Otolaryngologists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose, throat, and head and neck disorders.
Some of the disorders that are in the field of head and neck surgery are head and neck cancer, ear infections, nasal obstructions, middle ear infections, voice concerns, salivary gland diseases, facial trauma, airway obstructions, choanal atresia, branchial cleft anomalies, enlarged adenoids, head and neck masses, and lesions.
People who suffer from allergies have also symptoms related to allergies in the ears. Itching in the ears is one of the most common symptoms. Allergic and immune disorders can lead to fluid in the ear which is also a common disorder.
The most known allergic reaction related to the nose is hay fever. There are tiny particles in the air you breathe that are called allergens. Your body reacts to them when they enter through the air. Dust, mites, mold, and pollens can cause nasal allergies.
Throat allergies are very common and some symptoms are pain and swallowing, dry throat, and difficulty breathing.
Laryngology is a medical field that focuses on illnesses and injuries of the larynx or if we say its popular name, voice box. It is a specialty in otolaryngology that focuses ear, nose, and throat. The voice box holds the vocal cords and is located on the front of our neck. The duties of the larynx are swallowing and sound production.
