If you are considering a rhinoplasty and also suffer from sinus issues, undergoing a Balloon Sinuplasty at the same time can bring patients a world of relief in regards to their breathing.

Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and expert rhinoplasty surgeon in Beverly Hills is pleased to announce the performance of a simultaneous cosmetic rhinoplasty alongside a Balloon Sinuplasty to improve breathing. With the help of Babak Larian, MD, FACS, and highly regarded sinus surgeon in Los Angeles, the pair are able to not only improve the appearance of the nose, but also it’s function in one straightforward procedure that addresses two issues.

The unique team approach taken by the two Los Angeles surgeons ensures that the patient receives the best care possible, as both are experts in their respective field. During the procedure, the Balloon Sinuplasty is performed first by Dr. Larian, which requires no incision to be made and involves the use of a small flexible balloon catheter to open up the sinus passageways and flush excess mucus or debris. Once this is completed, Dr. Azizzadeh moves forward with the cosmetic rhinoplasty to improve overall facial symmetry, balance, and the patients ultimate nasal goals.

“If you are considering a rhinoplasty and also suffer from sinus issues, undergoing a Balloon Sinuplasty at the same time can bring patients a world of relief in regards to their breathing. Sustaining the two procedures together also ensures no additional recovery time,” said sinus expert Dr. Larian. "If you're suffering from an advanced sinus disease, a better and more long-lasting option may be endoscopic sinus surgery, a minimally invasive procedure aimed to ultimately reduce the number of severe sinus infections the patient experiences as well as to improve airflow through the nasal cavity.

At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh performs rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty procedures alongside sinus surgery with world-renowned head and neck surgeon Babak Larian, MD, FACS. As Dr. Azizzadeh noted, depending on the candidacy of the patient, there are other surgeries that can be performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty that will improve breathing aside from only a Balloon Sinuplasty.

“A Balloon Sinuplasty isn’t the only sinus surgery that can be performed simultaneously with a cosmetic rhinoplasty to improve breathing. If the patient is suffering from a deviated septum, they may be a better candidate to undergo a septo-rhinoplasty, a procedure which aims to straighten the septum while improving the nose's aesthetic appearance,” said rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Azizzadeh.

Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS is the Director of the Center for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills. Dr. Azizzadeh is Harvard-trained and board-certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Due to his vast expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, he is one of the most sought-after surgeons in the United States. Dr. Azizzadeh graduated from the UCLA School of Medicine with high honors, and continued his training by completing a six-year residency program in Head and Neck Surgery / Facial PlasticSurgery at UCLA Medical Center.

Dr. Babak Larian, the Chairman and the Director of the CENTER for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles, is a highly experienced and reputable, board-certified ear, head and neck surgeon, specializing in ear, nose and throat surgery.
