In recent years, the navigator has been incorporated into nasal surgery. It is a team that allows us to know at all times where we are operating. To do this, it is necessary to make a TAC before the patient and enter it in the browser. This has allowed us to reduce complications in patients operated on for some more serious pathologies or patients who have been operated on before and who have to go through the operating room again.. The dilatation balloon is also useful to treat patients with repeat minutites. The ball allows to be less aggressive during surgery and recovery is faster.

At the nasal level, the surgery that is performed more frequently is septoplasty and turbinates surgery. Both are aimed at improving breathing through the nose. In the first the nasal septum is corrected and in the second the size of the turbinates is reduced. There are others such as surgery for rhinitis or nasal polyps that are also performed but are less common.


Surgery is used many times when the rest of the treatments have not been effective. In these cases, the advantages are obvious because they solve the problem that could not be achieved. Many times as it happens in the surgery of the nasal septum, there are no alternatives to it.

Radiofrequency is a surgical technique that consists of reducing the volume of the turbinate. With radiofrequency this surgery is performed with local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. Recovery is faster and less bothersome for the patient.

One of the most practiced nose surgeries is rhinoplasty , a surgical technique that modifies the external appearance of the nose and is probably the most common cosmetic surgery at the level of the face.. Many times it is associated with a nasal septum surgery to improve both the aesthetic appearance and respiratory function of the nose.
