What is a septoturbinotomy, with outfracture of the turbinates? Does it involve removal of turbinates?

I had a complicated revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty 4 months ago. In my surgical notes it states that a septoturbinotomy with outfracture of turbinates was done, can you please explain this procedure. I have had some post op problems and I am in a lot of pain and I am not sure if it is to do with damaged membranes from abscess/infection or the turbinate surgery which I didn't know I was going to receive. Thanks in advance.
