The Radio Frequency Method has been used by otolaryngologists, cardiologists, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, oncologists since the 1990s.
Radio waves are delivered under the mucosa of the area to be applied at certain frequencies through special electrodes, where a controlled, local heat increase and denaturation of proteins present in the tissue are achieved, reducing the tissue volume.
The heat generated in the tissue by radiofrequency energy also treats unwanted excessive nasal discharge by reducing the number of secretory cells located under the mucosa. The most important advantage of radiofrequency is that since it is a controlled method, it shows its effect inside the tissue and does not damage the tissue surface.
Radiofrequency is used extremely safely and successfully in nose flesh reduction.
Radiofrequency is an easy and very comfortable method for the patient to apply.. It does not require hospitalization. Most often, limited anesthesia is sufficient, general anesthesia is not required.
With the help of special electrodes, radiofrequency energy is delivered into the tissue. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes.
After the applications made to the nose, normal life and work can be returned immediately. There are no restrictions in eating, drinking, daily activities. There is usually no need to use antibiotics. However, there may be pain for a few days after palate and small tongue and tongue root applications. Acidic, solid and hot food, drinks should be avoided.
After radiofrequency is applied, patients are called for control after 5-7 days. The sticky secretion formed in the nose and the crusting are cleaned if necessary. a re-check may be required after 1 month. The real relief will be after 3-4 weeks.
When radiofrequency is applied to the nasal flesh, that is, to the lower turbinates, an increase in nasal congestion occurs due to swelling that occurs from the first day, that is, paying. within 3-4 weeks, due to the shrinkage in the tissue, the congestion gradually decreases and breathing relaxes.
After radiofrequency is applied to the soft palate and tonsil areas, there is pain, swelling sensation, tripping, slight difficulty swallowing in the first days. Since it is, it may be necessary to apply 3-4 radiofrequency sessions.
If the result obtained in some patients is not sufficient, radiofrequency application may be repeated. Usually 1-2 sessions of radiofrequency are sufficient for nasal congestion.
