Turbinate reduction is a surgical procedure performed to improve airflow in people with chronic nasal congestion. It is also known as nasal turbinate reduction and inferior turbinate reduction. Turbinate reduction surgery helps in removing the excess tissue around the turbinate bones so you can breathe easier. Turbinates are tiny structures inside the nose. They cleanse, heat, and humidify air as it passes through the nasal cavity and into the lungs.
Turbinate reduction is a common surgical procedure. It can be performed alone or in combination with other treatments, such as septoplasty or rhinoplasty. It is an outpatient procedure and usually takes 10 minutes. The surgery is performed under the influence of local anesthesia. Usually, there’s no pain in the recovery process, no change in the physical aspect, and no long-term side effects, such as loss of olfactory perception.
Different types of turbinate reduction surgery are as follows:
Diet & Lifestyle Consultation
Post-Surgery Free Follow-Up

Before turbinate reduction, a healthcare provider suggests a variety of diagnostic tests to understand the severity of the condition and to identify any underlying health condition that may complicate the surgery. Some common diagnostic tests are as follows:
|Scars & Stitches||Yes||Minimal|
|Follow Up Consultation||No||Yes|
|No Cost EMI||No||Yes|
Turbinate reduction surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. In most cases, the procedure is performed under the influence of general anesthesia. During turbinate reduction surgery, a surgeon carefully shrinks the turbinate tissues. It can be done using one of several techniques, including
Some common benefits of turbinate reduction include:
Listed below are some preparation tips to follows to prepare yourself for turbinate reduction surgery:
Follow diet: Try to stay in good health. Ensure that you are eating and sleeping well. You must avoid eating 8 hours before surgery.
Recovery after turbinate reduction surgery varies from individual to individual. It also depends on the severity of the condition, how much excess tissue had to be removed, and whether the turbinate surgery was combined with another sinus-opening procedure such as balloon sinus dilation.
Complete turbinate reduction recovery can take up to six weeks. For less turbinate reductions, recovery is usually quick and not very painful. You must avoid strenuous activities and blowing your nose for several weeks after the surgery. Your doctor may also recommend you elevate your head while sleeping to avoid irritating your nose.
Turbinate reduction surgery is usually safe and effective, but like any surgical procedure,, it also carries certain risks and complications, including,
After turbinate reduction surgery, you must adopt some lifestyle changes to promote healing after surgery:
The cost of turbinate reduction surgery in India typically ranges from INR 40,000 to INR 60,000. This is the estimated cost of surgery; the final cost of surgery can vary depending on various factors, including,
Yes! The turbinate reduction procedure is covered under insurance. However, the specifics of the policy can vary from policy to policy. You must consult your healthcare provider before surgery to understand the specifics of the policy.
Before undergoing turbinate reduction surgery, it is important to ask the following questions to the surgeon to have a better understanding of the procedure, potential advantages and risks, and complications associated with it:
You may have large turbinates if you have one or more of the following symptoms – constant nasal congestion, difficulty breathing through the nose, snoring, frequent nosebleeds, and recurring sinusitis.
A little bleeding is normal after turbinate surgery as turbinates have a very strong blood supply, but if you notice too much bleeding, you should consult your surgeon as it may be a sign of complications.
No, generally, if turbinate reduction is not being performed in conjunction with any other surgery, then the patient will not get any sutures.
No, turbinate reduction is a functional procedure and does not affect facial or nasal appearance at all.
Turbinate surgery is an outpatient procedure and is usually performed under the influence of general anesthesia, which makes the procedure pain-free.
Turbinate reduction is a safe and effective procedure for improving airflow in people with chronic nasal obstruction. It helps in removing the size of turbinates by removing excess tissue.
In some cases, enlarged inferior turbinates can be managed with conservative measures such as
During this method, a heated probe is inserted inside the nose to close some of the blood vessels placed inside the turbinates, which reduces the blood flow in the turbinates and shrinks them in size.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Turbinate Reduction
During RFA treatment, a long, thin probe is inserted in the nasal cavity. The probe delivers heat energy to the inflamed turbinates which shrinks the turbinates and forms scar tissue over them.
Coblation Turbinate Reduction
Coblation surgery is performed using a specialized ‘coblation’ device that provides controlled lower temperature to the turbinates to shrink only the needed structure while preserving the surrounding tissues.
Microdebrider Submucosal Resection
During this procedure, the surgeon creates a small opening on the turbinate to remove the bone inside the turbinates to shrink their size while leaving the outer turbinate lining in place so the recovery is quicker.
Partial resection treatment involves removal of a part of the turbinates surgically to reduce their size. This is the only procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and is generally combined with septoplasty procedure.
