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. Paul 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.
Our cosmetic surgeon 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 Nose Surgery
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 by our Naples cosmetic surgeon, 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.
Septoplasty can help you breathe better if the septum is deviated inside the nose. This may assist not only in breathing, but also with snoring. It is done through incisions placed inside the nose, and can often be combined with rhinoplasty.
