In Office Turbinate Reduction

The inside walls of the nose have 3 pairs of long thin bones covered with a layer of tissue that can expand. These bones are called nasal turbinates.

Allergies or other nasal problems can cause the turbinates to swell and block airflow. Surgery can be done to fix blocked airways and improve your breathing.

Turbinate Reduction

  • A thin probe is placed into the nose. Laser light or radiofrequency energy goes through this tube and shrinks the turbinate tissue.
  • Redundant tissue in the front of the turbinate can be removed with a special instrument that is used between the lining and the bone to make more room for air to pass through the nose.
  • The procedure can be done in the health care provider's office using local anesthesia.
