"Over the course of years, I would have frequent sinus infections, intense sinus pressure... it was a miserable existence. Now, my breathing is better, not being sick all the time is tremendous. Huge improvement in the quality of my life."
Deanna underwent a functional endoscopic sinus procedure, as well as a septoplasty & rhinoplasty. The patient was very self- conscious about her nose on a daily basis, and had quite a bit of difficulty breathing. She underwent both functional sinus surgery and a cosmetic rhinoplasty (at the same time), to create a nose that functions just as well as it looks!
"If you would look straight on, you could see that it (patient's nose), actually shifted to one side. And then, mind you, I had a double deviated septum, I couldn't breathe from both sides and it was just very annoying. I couldn't speak, I couldn't breathe properly."

*Please be aware, this content may be considered medically graphic.* Several revolutionary advances have occurred in recent years that have improved the results of sinus surgery dramatically. Endoscopes connected to a TV monitor provide accurate and magnified views of the inside of the nose and sinuses, making surgery accurate and safe. CT scans are computerized x-rays giving detailed pictures of the nose and sinus anatomy allowing for accurate diagnosis and a "road map" during surgery. Powered nasal endoscopy is another major advance in this surgery. Using the nasal endoscope, the powered device gently shaves or de-brides away the diseased, obstructive tissue under direct vision, while leaving normal tissue intact. Most significantly, new image-guided technology allows the CT scan to be used as a real time "road map" during the procedure, allowing for very specific accuracy during the operation.
Stephanie underwent a functional endoscopic sinus procedure, as well as a septoplasty. With the assistance of Image Guided Technology (exclusive to Dr. Guida's 1175 Park Avenue location), Dr. Guida was able to perform a successful surgery that left the patient with a better quality of life, and the ability to breathe well for the first time in years!
Each of these patients underwent an image guided sinus procedure with facial plastic surgeon, and sinus specialist Dr. Robert Guida. These procedures include functional endoscopic surgery, septoplasty, rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, surgery for sinusitis or a deviated septum, nasal obstructions/ nasal fracture or a combination of these procedures.
