Congratulations! Better Breathing Is Right Around The Corner...
Rest assured! We know that any type of medical procedure might cause a little anxiety. Not to worry though, we're here for you. That's why we've developed the most non-invasive, in-office treatment options available anywhere. In fact, most patients are surprised at how quick and simple it is...some say it's easier than going to the dentist!
How to Prepare for Your Simple In-Office Procedure
Appointment Confirmation Text: Eight days before your appointment we'll text you to confirm your appointment time.
Medications: To help speed your recovery, there are three over-the-counter medications that you'll want to have on hand prior to your procedure.
Sometimes your physician will recommend a mild sedative be taken before your procedure. If this is the case, the prescription will be sent to your pharmacy one week prior to your appointment. (Please note you cannot drive when taking this medication.)
What to avoid before your procedure: Please avoid drinking alcohol 48 hours before your procedure and taking any unprescribed anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen 1 week before your procedure.
After Your Procedure: Most patients are surprised by how easy and pain-free in-office procedures are. Generally, they last less than 20 minutes and patients have very little downtime. You can return to normal activity right after the procedure, but we recommend taking it easy for the rest of the day.
What to Expect...
During Your Procedure
Yay! It's finally the day to get your sleep and sinus issues resolved! The process is really quite simple...

- Your physician will meet with you to answer any additional questions you might have.
- They'll then talk you through exactly what they're doing as they perform your procedure(s).
- During this time, you might feel a little pressure in your nose, but most patients experience very little pain.

- And that's it! In less than an hour's time, you'll be on your way to living a better life.
