Inferior Turbinate Reduction
Despite using nasal steroid sprays, decongestants, antihistamines, many patients do not achieve relief from their nasal obstruction. The culprit is often a large inferior turbinate – causing blockage of nasal airflow along the nasal floor.
The recovery time after an inferior turbinate reduction is quite short, only 1 – 2 days. Patients can expect some nasal congestion due to swelling. After 1 week, patients return to the office for their post-operative visit. No packing is used during this procedure.
