Your Rhinoplasty in Ft. Myers

The nose holds a prominent position on the face, making it one of the strongest character-assigning features and giving it a strong impact on your ability to make a great first impression. Throughout history, surgery on the nose has been performed to either change its appearance or restore its form after trauma. This procedure, also called a “nose job,” rhinoplasty, can redefine the nose’s shape, size, and general appearance to achieve an aesthetic balance between the nose and the other facial features. It’s also a great way to restore your breathing to its fullest capacity and correct a variety of other functional issues.

Is Nose Surgery the Right Choice for Me?

During your consultation, we’ll work with you to get to know your cosmetic goals, while also taking into account your highly unique facial structure. This will help us work together to decide whether or not a nose job is the right choice for you. We offer a number of both surgical and non-surgical facial procedures, so we’ll talk you through your various options.

If you’re in Fort Myers or Naples FL, you’re likely a great candidate for rhinoplasty if you’re dealing with:

  • Overly large nose
  • Too small nose
  • Trouble breathing
  • Humped nose
  • Drooping tip
  • Unsightly shape

Your Guide to Nose Reshaping

Nose surgery isn’t limited to cosmetic outcomes. In many cases, patients who have trouble breathing can undergo nose surgery that will restore their breathing to its fullest capacity, enabling you to enjoy a restored quality of life. In other instances, the nose job procedure can be used to make the nose larger or smaller, depending on your needs and your unique cosmetic goals. In either case, nose surgery with Dr. Garramone is an effective way to give your quality of life a major boost.

Your Initial Consultation

In most cases, your initial consultation will involve taking digital photographs of your nose, which we’ll upload into a computer program that allows us to visualize your potential postoperative appearance, giving you a startlingly accurate idea as to what your results can look like after a given surgery. We’ll also answer any questions you might have, talk you through the aftercare procedure, and generally make sure that you’re ready and confident to enjoy the look you deserve.


What to Expect on the Day of Your Nose Surgery

A rhinoplasty is usually performed as outpatient surgery, meaning you’ll be able to return home the same day. A nose job can be combined with other procedures, most often a chin augmentation with an implant, which we’ll talk over during your consultations.

Combining your procedures can give you the chance to significantly improve the proportion between the chin and nose, both of which strongly affect your profile.

In most cases, surgery is performed under light general anesthesia or IV sedation, and most patients can return to their normal routines within a day or two while taking care to avoid strenuous activities for two weeks.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

During a rhinoplasty, the cartilage and/or bone structure that gives the nose its shape is modified. The skin is then re-draped over the newly shaped framework, providing the nose its new appearance. The changes can be subtle or dramatic depending on the patient’s needs. Rhinoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other procedures to achieve the most natural facial appearance.

The goal with rhinoplasty is a nose that appears natural, functions properly, and is in balance with the rest of the face. The patient’s wishes about the type of nose desired are always considered. However, there are limiting factors. The texture and thickness of the skin, previous injury, individual differences in healing, and differences in facial proportions all play important roles in what can be achieved.
