A stuffy, congested nose can get in the way of your full life. And when home remedies and over-the-counter medicines don't work, it can start to feel hopeless. Lucky for you, there are serious options for serious problems — like VivAer®.
Dr. Sina Joorabchi at Broward ENT & Allergy strives to deliver the best VivAer procedure Pembroke Pines has to offer and has been helping Floridians overcome nasal obstruction issues for years, including through treatments like VivAer®. At his clinic in Pembroke Pines, Florida, he and his highly trained, compassionate team will help you breathe easier and get back to living the life you deserve.
VivAer® is a cutting-edge treatment for chronic stuffy noses caused by inflammation of the nasal membranes. Mucous membranes and small internal structures called "turbinates" can become swollen due to genetics, disease, or irritation. When this happens, they can obstruct your nasal passages and reduce the flow of air.
A treatment with VivAer® uses radiofrequency energy to target these enlarged structures and reduce their size. This means you can have reopened pathways with as little as one outpatient treatment, leaving you relaxed and breathing easier.
VivAer® is considered a safe and effective method of reducing nasal obstruction in most adults. Results often vary from patient to patient, but in general, you can expect to see relief in ways like:
Each person's body and condition are unique, so a thorough examination with Dr. Joorabchi is required before undergoing the VivAer® procedure.
Dr. Joorabchi performs VivAer® treatments as outpatient procedures at his state-of-the-art clinic in the Pembroke Pines/Hollywood-area. During your consultation, you and the doctor will discuss your medical history and current condition to craft a treatment plan that's customized just for you.
First, Dr. Joorabchi usually begins by applying a mild, topical anesthetic to the targeted areas inside your nose. Because this is a non-invasive procedure, you can expect to go home immediately following your treatment.
Once the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Joorabchi expertly guides the patented VivAer® stylus into your nose and onto the swollen turbinates. The probe is activated and transmits highly targeted energy into the tissue, causing it to reduce in size.
This process may be repeated in a few places inside your nose following your treatment plan. In all, the entire treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.
After your VivAer® treatment, you can expect some mild symptoms like swelling or mild bruising, as well as minor bleeding or drainage. It is also common for crusts to form in the treated area. However, any discomfort is usually mild, and symptoms tend to dissipate after about a week.
You should see a noticeable difference in your breathing once your recovery is complete. Obstruction should be markedly reduced, and you should feel at ease when breathing through your nose.
