Nasal turbinates, bony structures covered with soft tissue inside the nose, play a crucial role in humidifying and filtering the air we breathe.

However, hypertrophy of turbinates, or the abnormal enlargement of these structures, can lead to breathing difficulties and nasal congestion.

Fortunately, there are several methods to reduce the size of nasal turbinates without resorting to surgery that address nasal congestion, and we will share them with you below.

Non-Invasive Treatments for Turbinate Hypertrophy

By non-invasive treatment, we refer to options that address turbinate hypertrophy without requiring surgery.

Use of Topical and Inhalation Steroids

These are commonly prescribed to reduce inflammation of nasal turbinates. By applying or inhaling these medications directly into the nose, effective reduction of inflammation and congestion can be achieved.

Application of Vasoconstrictors

Available in the form of nasal sprays, they can provide temporary relief by reducing inflammation and congestion. However, their use should be limited and supervised by a doctor to avoid dependence and other side effects.

Minimally Invasive Alternatives

For cases where non-invasive treatments do not offer sufficient relief, there are minimally invasive options that ensure few risks and faster recovery.

Turbinate Radiofrequency

It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce the size of turbinates. It is performed under local anesthesia, and patients may experience a significant improvement in nasal breathing.

Electrocautery and Laser

These precise procedures decrease the size of turbinates, minimize bleeding, and promote rapid recovery, effectively improving nasal airflow.

Medical Management of Turbinate Hypertrophy

In addition to the mentioned treatment options, proper medical management is essential to control turbinate hypertrophy.

Oral Antihistamines

These are a useful recommendation for patients whose turbinate hypertrophy is related to allergies.

By controlling the allergic reaction, turbinates’ inflammation can be reduced.

Nasal Rinses

Nasal rinses with saline solution help keep the nose clean, reduce irritation, and facilitate the removal of allergens and mucus, thus improving breathing.
