Nasal concha overgrowth is, after curved septum, one of the most common problems when it comes to nasal patency. There is, however, a way to restore nasal patency by removing the excess tissue. It does not require a long convalescence, is minimally invasive and gives very good results.

Why is it worth it?
Already after a few days after the conchoplasty procedure, patients notice huge improvement in the quality of breathing and nasal patency. It is worth taking care of free breathing, because it is essential for healthy sleep and proper functioning of the body.
