About Turbinate Reduction Surgery
Turbinates are bony structures in your nose that play a vital role in moistening, warming and cleaning the air you breathe. However, when they swell or protrude into the passageway, turbinates can obstruct airflow, causing chronic congestion and sinus pressure.

The Turbinate Reduction Surgery procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and most patients can return home on the same day with a week-long recovery period before returning to work.
In some cases, Turbinate Reduction Surgery may be performed in conjunction with a Septoplasty procedure, which may affect the recovery timeline.
