Inferior turbinates….They are placed in lateral sides of nasal cavities. We shouldn’t confuse them with the adenoids in the children. They have very important functions like warming, moisturizing and filtering the air entering nasal cavities. When they swell and become hypertrophied then difficulty breathing through the nose starts. They are never taken out completely, minimal partial resection is preferred. Radiofrequency is used also. The treatment of the turbinates is easily done during rhinoplasty. This procedure is called rhinoplasty and turbinoplasty.
