Turbinates are ridges of tissues on the inside of noses that intrude into both airways. They clean, purify and moisten the air you breathe. But when swollen or infected, they can block airflow and become associated with nasal allergies. The standard procedure is reducing the Turbinates size. That procedure can be done at the same time as a Nasal Septoplasty or a Rhinoplasty.

Synonyms:
A turbinate is inside the nose and warms the air you breathe
