Turbinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to address issues related to the nasal turbinates, which are structures inside the nasal passages that help regulate airflow and filter air. Radiofrequency surgery is a technique employed in turbinoplasty to reduce the size of the turbinates, alleviating symptoms such as nasal congestion and difficulty breathing.


  • Turbinate hypertrophy: Enlargement of the turbinates, leading to nasal obstruction.
  • Chronic nasal congestion: Persistent nasal blockage that doesn't respond well to conservative treatments.
  • Nasal breathing difficulties: Difficulty in breathing through the nose due to hypertrophied turbinates.

How we do the Surgery:

  • Anesthesia: The procedure is often performed under local anesthesia to numb the area, although general anesthesia may be an option in some cases.
  • Radiofrequency Energy: During the surgery, a special device with an electrode is used to apply controlled radiofrequency energy to the turbinates. This energy heats the tissues and causes controlled coagulation, leading to a reduction in the size of the turbinates.
  • Precision and Control: The radiofrequency energy is delivered with precision, allowing the surgeon to target specific areas of the turbinates. This helps in minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Minimally Invasive: Turbinoplasty using radiofrequency surgery is considered a minimally invasive procedure. It is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and patients can often return home on the same day.


  • Reduced Nasal Congestion: By reducing the size of the turbinates, airflow through the nasal passages is improved, alleviating nasal congestion.
  • Improved Nasal Breathing: Patients often experience improved nasal breathing and a reduction in symptoms such as snoring.
  • Quick Recovery: The recovery time is generally shorter compared to traditional surgical techniques.

Postoperative Care:

  • Patients may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, or nasal drainage in the days following the procedure.
  • Nasal saline irrigation may be recommended to keep the nasal passages moist and promote healing.
  • Avoiding activities that may increase nasal pressure, such as heavy lifting or vigorous exercise, is usually advised during the initial recovery period.

Risks and Considerations:

While turbinoplasty using radiofrequency surgery is generally safe, there are potential risks, including infection, bleeding, or changes in sensation.

As with any surgical procedure, individual responses to treatment may vary.
