Concha bullosa resection is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to reduce concha bullosa, which are enlarged conchae that can cause aesthetic and functional problems. During concha bullosa resection, the conchae are reduced in size to improve breathing, hearing, and overall appearance. Are you experiencing persistent nasal congestion that affects your breathing and overall comfort? The Concha Bullosa Reduction Procedure at NJ ENT offers a personalized solution to address nasal obstruction caused by enlarged nasal turbinates, known as concha bullosa.

Concha Bullosa Symptoms

Concha bullosa can cause a variety of symptoms, including difficulty hearing and breathing, snoring, sleep apnea, and facial asymmetry. Patients may also experience discomfort in the conchal area due to pressure from the enlarged conchae. In extreme cases, concha bullosa can obstruct the eustachian tube connecting the middle ear to the back of the throat. If left untreated, concha bullosa can lead to more serious health problems such as chronic sinusitis or infections.

Benefits of Concha Bullosa Resection

The benefits of concha bullosa resection include improved hearing, reduced snoring and sleep apnea symptoms, improved air flow through the nose and sinuses, better facial symmetry, and improved overall appearance. It is a safe procedure with minimal risks and a short recovery time. The results are long-lasting, providing our patients with relief from concha bullosa for years to come.

Concha Bullosa Resection Procedure

The concha bullosa resection procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. An incision is made in the conchal area to access the conchae and reduce their size. Special instruments may be used to trim, reshape, or remove tissue as necessary for a more aesthetically pleasing result. The whole procedure takes less than an hour and carries minimal risks of complications such as infection or nerve injury.


Patients who undergo concha bullosa resection can expect a short recovery period, with most returning to normal activities within a few days after surgery. Congestion and pressure are common side effects that dissipate over a few days to weeks after the procedure; however, these are typically mild and not cause for concern. Patients may experience some discomfort in the cheek area as they heal; however, this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
