The nose is one of the aesthetically important organs on the face. Apart from aesthetics, he also undertook various tasks. It is the place where breathing begins, the nose is effective for smell, the formation of a personalized sound. It is between the doors of the body that open outwards. It is in a whole state with its functions and aesthetic appearance. For this reason, the nose should be treated both inside and outside. On the side walls of the nose, there are structures called nasal flesh (Concha). The inner part of these structures consists of spongy soft tissue, while the outer part of the bone skeleton. Nasal flesh (conchae) is rich in veins.
What Is Nasal Flesh (Concha)? Does it cause snoring?
The flesh of the nose is found in the upper, middle and lower parts of the nose, including 3 pieces. Their task is to heat, moisten, filter and transmit the air drawn to the lungs. Conchas, consisting of soft tissue and bone, swell when the air is cold, allowing blood to fill the vessels inside it, and allow the air taken from the nose to be ready for breathing.
In some cases, the middle and lower parts of the nose meat grow more than necessary. Growth of nasal flesh is usually observed in pregnancy, allergic reactions, and curvature of the nasal bone. In addition, certain medications, environmental factors, and certain infections lead to growth in the flesh of the nose. Growth of conchas leads to breathing problems while sleeping or during the day. This, in turn, often causes snoring. It causes dry mouth and bad breath. It is possible to end them with this operation.
What Is Nose Surgery? How Is It Done?
Nose surgery is usually performed under local or general anesthesia. One of the methods is surgery to ignore the nasal flesh, that is, to completely cut and remove the nasal flesh. After this method, the humidification and filtration of the inhaled air will be insufficient, so the removal process is not completely performed unless necessary.
If there are no problems with the nasal bone, the nose is resorted to shrinking the flesh. The latest technological product developed for this purpose is laser nose meat surgery. In one session and the final result is taken. In nasal flesh reduction surgery, it is aimed to preserve the structure of the concha surface to a great extent.
