Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)

Dr. Paul Gardner's outstanding surgical skills and conservative approach to nose surgery attracts patients from all over the Naples area to undergo rhinoplasty. He has earned a reputation for excellence for his beautiful, natural-looking results, as well as his compassionate, personalized care.

When patients enter Dr. Gardner's office to undergo rhinoplasty, they often say they wish to look like enhanced versions of themselves, not surgically altered. Dr. Gardner appreciates his patients' concerns and works meticulously to create minor changes that dramatically improve the overall balance and aesthetics of the face, while achieving as natural-looking results as possible.

Nose Surgery in Naples

For patients to obtain results that are in balance with the rest of their facial features, it is important to personalize the treatment to address the patient's unique concerns and goals. Dr. Gardner meets with his Naples rhinoplasty patients on a one-on-one basis during a consultation to discuss their concerns with their noses and to create a unique treatment plan that will meet all of their needs. This may include nose surgery that removes dorsal humps, alters bulbous nasal tips, thins wide noses, and/or changes the size and shape of the nose.

Dr. Gardner performs two techniques of nose surgery: open and closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty is a more invasive approach that is reserved for reshaping the nasal structure, while closed rhinoplasty is typically used for minor changes. Both techniques yield stunning results under Dr. Gardner's care.

Recovering from Rhinoplasty

Following the procedure, Naples nose surgery patients need to rest for one to two weeks before they are able to return to their daily activities. Many patients can begin to enjoy the results of their nose surgery within a few weeks after the procedure; however, as swelling slowly subsides, the full subtleties and details of the results will become apparent within months of the procedure.

Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis, so patients should arrange to have a ride take them to their homes following the procedure. Dr. Gardner recommends that Naples rhinoplasty patients keep their heads elevated during the first few weeks of their recoveries, as well as apply cold compresses to minimize swelling.

Like all surgical procedures, rhinoplasty has risks for complications, but patients often feel at ease and secure with Dr. Gardner due to his outstanding surgical record, which includes years' experience performing nose surgery.
