Turbinoplasty Meaning

Turbinoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the size of the turbinates in the nose to improve airflow. 

Turbinates are like cushions on the side of the nose that contain bone and are covered with glandular tissue, which produces mucus. Sometimes, things like allergies, infections, or changes in temperature can make these turbinates swell up, blocking your nose. 

If this blockage doesn’t go away and affects your daily life, you can talk to Dr Levente for nasal turbinoplasty surgery.

Before Your Turbinoplasty Surgery

Before the turbinoplasty surgery, it’s important to make some lifestyle changes to help ensure the best outcome. 

Here’s what Dr Levente recommends:

Following these recommendations can help prepare your body for surgery and promote a smoother recovery afterwards.

How is Turbinoplasty Performed?

The goal of the nasal turbinoplasty procedure is to trim the lower “side cushions” on the sidewall of the nose to improve nasal airflow and make it easier to breathe through the nose. 

Before the turbinoplasty surgery, Dr Levente will assess the origins of the problem – bone or soft tissue to choose the best and least invasive method to get a quick and effective result.

You won’t need any nasal packing after the surgery. Nasal drops are recommended for a few days to maintain a clear nose. 

The patient is usually discharged two hours after the turbinoplasty procedure. There won’t be any bruising around your eyes, no cuts on the outside of your nose, and the shape of your nose won’t change.

Recovery Post-Turbinoplasty Surgery

In the Hospital – First Six Hours

After the surgery, you might wake up with some packing inside your nose to prevent bleeding. It’s important to refrain from touching or removing this packing on your own. Dr Levente will take care of removing it when appropriate.

For the first week after surgery:

The First Week at Home

After the surgery, you may notice some blood stains or pinkish discharge for a few days. This is normal and should decrease over time, but you might still see some spotting on your handkerchief for a few weeks afterwards.

Here’s what you should keep in mind during your recovery:

Following these guidelines will help with a smoother recovery and improve your overall outcome after the turbinoplasty surgery.

Addressing Common Questions

The turbinoplasty procedure can help clear your nasal passageway, giving you better airflow and more comfortable sleep at night. It also reduces the problem of snoring and treats severe nasal allergies.

The turbinoplasty procedure is not generally painful. A small amount of bleeding is common throughout the first week, which typically stops on its own.

Turbinoplasty doesn’t change the shape of your nose because it focuses on removing excess soft tissue from the turbinates inside your nose. The bones and cartilage of your nose stay the same, so the structure of your nose isn’t affected by the surgery.
