Turbinate reduction surgery decreases the size of the turbinates in the nose. This surgery is usually used to treat nasal obstruction (condition that hinders breathing by restricting airflow). The surgeon can reduce the size of the turbinates using one of many techniques that can either cause the tissue to become scarred and shrink over time, or directly remove portions of the turbinate. Techniques for turbinate surgery include laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, turbinectomy, and turbinoplasty. In some cases, septoplasty (correction of the septum), is done along with this surgery.
