If you have trouble breathing through your nose, a simple, in-office procedure called endoscopic turbinoplasty may be able to provide significant relief. Turbinates are bony plates within the sinus cavity which normally enlarge and shrink. In some people, however, the turbinates are so enlarged that it’s hard for them to breathe through their nose.
Endoscopic turbinoplasty is a quick, painless procedure that permanently shrinks the turbinates. The short- and long-term improvements in the ability to breathe through your nose can be dramatic.
