Swelling of structures within the nose called turbinates can result from a deviated nasal septum or allergies and cause nasal breathing problems. A turbinate reduction procedure to shrink the size of the turbinates creates more room within the nose and improves nasal breathing.
How will a turbinate reduction improve my breathing?
Reducing the size of the nasal turbinates, which are structures inside the nose, can enhance nasal airflow and improve nasal breathing. Non-invasive techniques are used to shrink the size of the turbinates without the need for incisions or scarring on the face.
Can I have a septoplasty and turbinate reduction during the same procedure?
Yes, typically a turbinate reduction is performed along with a septoplasty in order to fully optimize the nasal airway and make the most improvement in breathing.
