In the nose there are some flesh called turbinate, which have a vascular network inside, which directs the inhaled air to the lung. The turbinates are arranged from bottom to top on the side walls of both nasal cavities. The task of turbans is to heat, humidify and filter the inhaled air.
Why do nasal flesh grow and what are the symptoms?
There are 3 turbines in each of the two nasal cavities. The largest and most working turbinate is the bottom one. It enlarges and shrinks depending on whether the breathing air is hot or cold. Allergic inhalation, air pollution, smoking, sinusitis, nasal inflammation and nasal bone curvature of allergy sufferers may cause the turbinates to grow larger than normal.
The most obvious symptom of nasal flesh growth is nasal congestion. Complaints such as open mouth sleep, snoring, difficulty in smell, pain in the face area and nasal discharge are also symptoms of nasal flesh growth.
Treatment of nasal flesh growth
Treatment methods such as medication and spray can be applied. These treatments are long lasting. The disadvantage of its long duration is that it can cause side effects such as dryness of the nose and bleeding. Surgical treatment is preferred when drug therapies are not sufficient.
Nose surgery (Nasal Concha)
The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia. Reduction is applied to the flesh of the nose by radiofrequency or laser method. In radiofrequency technique, heat is given by electrodes placed in the growing nasal flesh. The heat given makes the nose flesh shrink. In the laser technique, the nose meat is minimized by irradiating the nose.
Recovery after nasal surgery is from 4 to 8 weeks. Activities that require physical force should be avoided for at least 4 weeks.
