Nassif, a distinguished facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon internationally known for his innovative surgical techniques and expertise in revision & ethnic rhinoplasty. In this video you'll discover how a Tubinoplasty procedure, or Turbinate Surgery, is performed and learn why it is an important part of a westernization rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedure. Large turbinates can cause nasal obstruction. In some cases where a deviated septum is present, compensatory hypertrophy of the turbinate occurs on the side opposite the deviation. The nose does its job of filtering, warming and humidifying when the oncoming airstream is about 2-3 millimeters wide. If the airway is too large on one side, the turbinates compensate by getting bigger. That is why turbinate surgery is sometimes necessary when the septum is straightened. Sometimes your doctor will recommend turbinate surgery if medication is not effective in opening your air passages.
