Balloon Sinuplasty: Your Patient-Friendly Sinus Relief Option

Are you constantly suffering from sinus infections? Do you find it difficult to breathe through your nose daily? Are you looking for a long-term solution to your sinus issues that will finally help you breathe free again? Balloon sinuplasty is a modern-day solution that may be right for you.

Billions of dollars are spent each year on short-term “fixes” that manage symptoms rather than getting to the root of the problem. However, not getting to the source of the problem will instigate more painful symptoms and infections. Also, frequent infections may be a sign of serious medical issues that can impact overall health. It is time to take back your life and breathe free again.

Your sinus issues may be impacting your life more than you realize. If so, this assessment can help determine if you are suffering from a sinusitis condition.

Stop Only Treating the Symptoms, Treat the Cause

Most of the time, sinus infection treatments only focus on managing symptoms. Over-the-counter medications, antibiotics, nasal sprays, home remedies, and other treatments only treat the symptoms. It’s time to get past only addressing the symptoms and finally treat the root of the problem.

Balloon sinus dilation, also known as the balloon sinuplasty procedure, is a safe, revolutionary office procedure that brings long-lasting relief after a very short recovery time.

Balloon sinus dilation is a minimally invasive office procedure performed under local anesthesia that delivers immediate and long-lasting relief. Dr. Hershcovitch and the SoCal Breathe Free team will utilize minimally invasive balloon technology to reshape your sinus pathways, restoring drainage.

How Does Balloon Sinuplasty Get to the Root of the Problem?

Balloon sinuplasty addresses the infections’ actual physical and mechanical cause, a blocked sinus passage. When sinus passages become swollen and inflamed, it becomes more difficult for mucus to flow freely. This means that the mucus can become stuck, leading to pain and infection.

During Balloon Sinuplasty, a small catheter/seeker is inserted into the blocked sinus cavity. Then, a small balloon is inflated and removed, which opens the sinus cavities so that natural drainage can begin again. The sinuses are then drained and cleaned to help remove the infection.


Topical anesthetics will first be used to numb the sinuses. Then, a specialized endoscope is used to locate the treatment area and place a catheter with a very small balloon on the end.

Dilate & Restore

The little balloon is gently inflated to expand and dilate the sinus passageways. When the balloon is deflated and removed, the passages remain open to restore normal sinus drainage.


Balloon Sinuplasty takes about an hour, and patients experience a feeling of immediate relief. They can resume normal activities quickly and can return to work or school within 24 to 48 hours.

Convenient, Comfortable, Effective, Quick

Convenient, Comfortable, and Effective

Once the procedure is over, and natural flow is restored, you will see a significant improvement of symptoms. With the open sinus cavities, you will be able to breathe freely again. In addition, balloon sinuplasty provides relief from:

  • Headache
  • Pressure
  • Pain
  • Congestion

Balloon Sinuplasty Is Both Patient-Friendly and Affordable

If you are putting off a long-term sinus treatment because of the perceived cost and risks associated, then you’re not alone. However, Balloon Sinuplasty is safe, effective, and minimally invasive. As a result, it is an excellent alternative to traditional sinus surgery in most cases – with significantly less risk and costs involved.
