Meet Theresa M. Jarmuz, M.D.
A double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jarmuz exceeds expectations for patient care & results.
For your rhinoplasty (sometimes referred to in the media as a "nose job"), Atlanta facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jarmuz will perform either an "open" procedure or a "closed" procedure. During a closed procedure, incisions will be made entirely inside the nose. During an open procedure, an incision will be made between your nostrils, across the columella. The structure of your nose will be reshaped to correct size, width, and profile. Your nostrils and nasal tip also can be adjusted.
After surgery, you will have flesh colored tape that will protect your nose during the early healing phase (typically one week). You can expect to return to your normal routine after a week or two when most swelling has subsided and the splint has been removed. Revision rhinoplasty is also a specialty of Dr. Jarmuz. While it is not common for many patients, other facial plastic surgery procedures can be performed during a rhinoplasty for more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Although your new look will be visible after several weeks, subtle contour refinements can occur over a period of several months to a year. Very soon after the procedure you will be able to see a well-balanced nose that compliments the rest of your face. Most of Dr. Jarmuz's patients feel renewed self-confidence after their procedure, feeling that they still look like themselves, only better.
