Radiofrequency Turbinate Surgery

Nowadays, many people experience respiratory problems due to the growth of concha structures, i.e. nasal flesh. Enlarged nasal meat can make breathing difficult and lead to various health problems. However, radiofrequency turbinate surgery, one of the innovative solutions offered by modern medicine, is designed to treat this problem. Here is what you need to know about radiofrequency turbinate surgery:

What is it and how does it work?
Radiofrequency turbinate surgery is a procedure performed under local anesthesia. It is performed by energizing the concha at a certain frequency and power with the help of a special electrode. This energy shrinks the concha, opening the airways and making breathing easier. No incisions or stitches are made during the operation and it usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
Who is it suitable for?
This surgery is applied to people who have breathing problems due to swelling of the turbinates. It is especially preferred in the case of turbinate hypertrophy, which is common in people with allergic constitution. It can also be effective in people with snoring and mild sleep apnea.
Postoperative Recovery Process
   There is usually a rapid recovery after surgery. The patient is usually discharged within a few hours and is advised to rest for a week. Temporary side effects such as crusting or dry nose may occur during the healing process, but these problems can be controlled with the treatments recommended by the doctor.
Why is it Preferred?
   Radiofrequency turbinate surgery has many advantages over other traditional methods. It has advantages such as being a bloodless and painless procedure, being completed in a short time and allowing the patient to return to his/her daily life quickly. In addition, the fact that it can be performed under local anesthesia and anatomical integrity is also an important advantage.
