What is Concha Surgery?


Concha Surgery

The inferior turbinate, or in other words, the concha, is an organ that is located on the side of both nasal cavities and should be in every human being. Its task is to regulate the air flow in the nose, moisten the nose, raise the air entering the nose to a certain temperature and regulate the nasal cycle.

The enlargement of these organs and obstruction of the nasal passage for various reasons is called concha hypertrophy.

Concha Operation

Comfortable breathing is an absolutely indispensable factor for a comfortable life. With the concha operation, you can easily get rid of the problems you have experienced and continue your life with pleasure.

Concha hypertrophy is most commonly enlarged due to an allergic reaction. When this growth becomes irreversible, it shows itself with symptoms such as nasal congestion, snoring at night and difficulty breathing through the nose. In such irreversible cases, the concha should be reduced by surgical operation. Especially in recent years, the two methods that cause the least damage to the concha, are performed under local anesthesia and give the most effective results, are the reduction method with radiofrequency and endoscopic micro shaver. We can list the symptoms of concha hypertrophy as follows;

  • Changes in smelling,
  • Pressure in the forehead area,
  • Mild pain in the face,
  • Nasal flow.

If you feel and think that you have these problems yourself, you may be suitable for this treatment. Now you can contact us by calling our Doctor Ahmet Caymaz clinic and make an appointment to have examined.
