BARCELONA: A HEALTH HUB
Do you want to know why it is worth coming to Barcelona for plastic surgery and why so many people come from abroad?
People that present a difficulty to breath, due to allergic rhinitis, traumatisms, smoking, etc. And they want to improve their quality of life. Many times, this is associated to a deviated nasal septum.
The procedure is done under local anaesthesia and sedation with no need of incisions, as it is done through the nostrils. It is done with radiofrequency through electrodes that rise the temperature in the tissues, without damaging the adjacent structures, to reduce the size of the nasal turbinates. The reduction of the turbinate is immediate, although after an intervention it is normal that the nasal turbinates are swollen for at least 5 to 10 days, depending on each patient.
