Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

My nose knows and loves it’s Neti pot.

Seattle Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder loves her Neti Pot.

I will try really hard not to over share but …….. these dark, moist days of Seattle’s autumn bring out the worst in my nose and sinuses.   I’m allergic to just about everything a person can be allergic to (even my beloved cat, Angelo) but sometimes I think it is fall and winter I am allergic to the very most.  Prior to discovering the glorious Neti Pot and ridding our home of all carpet and the 20 bajillion dust mites it contained, I was one sneezing, coughing, pathetic and miserable sinus infection from October until May.   Just ask my husband and kids and Angelo.

Nowadays, I worship my hardwood floors, my fake down bedding and make sure to commune with my Neti Pot every morning.  And if you think having a sinus infection is miserable in itself, think how miserable it is if you have to wear a surgeon’s mask for many hours at a time!  Oh, woe was me.

If you are a fellow sufferer, don’t be a victim of your sinuses.  Get (and use) a Neti Pot.

Thanks for reading and happy breathing!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
