“I feel great about myself and how I look, and I'm able to breathe through my nose again!”
Combined Cosmetic And Functional Septo-Rhinoplasty Review
This High School senior had an open septorhinoplasty to both reshape her external nose and to improve her nasal breathing. She had suffered from chronic nasal obstruction for many years following prior nasal trauma. This created a very crooked septum along with a prominent bridge hump that she was very self conscious about.
"I had a Septoplasty/Rhinoplasty by Dr. Lamperti in July, just 1 month after my 18th birthday, and I'm very happy with my results. I'm glad that my parents and I chose for me to have my surgery sooner, rather than later. I can hardly believe I had my senior photos taken just a month after my surgery. I feel great about myself and how I look, and I'm able to breathe through my nose again!
I broke my nose years ago while playing baseball. I was hit in the nose with a baseball bat. I had a deviated septum and a large bump on the bridge of my nose as a result of the injury. I also had a hard time with sinus and breathing issues. I didn't sleep well, and it was challenging to keep up while playing sports, especially basketball. And I didn't feel good about how I looked, and I’ve felt self-conscious of my nose for most of my life.
Dr. Lamperti was amazing throughout the process, and I appreciated how he answered all of my mom's and my questions. He's a great listener, and is genuinely concerned about his patients. He was open and honest, and was always available by email or phone to follow up with me or my mom. He was very thorough. We never felt rushed, and he spent plenty of time consulting with us. We felt 100% confident in choosing Dr. Lamperti, and we're so glad that we found him.
I'm very happy with my results, and we are so grateful for Dr. Lamperti's expertise. He is an artist that does an amazing job. My mom and I are so happy we found a surgeon that was concerned about every aspect of the surgical outcome-- my overall look, my sinus and breathing issues, and the long-term structural results of my nose. The surgery was well worth it, and I feel so much better. My mom has referred Dr. Lamperti to our family and friends, and we will continue to do so. He has changed my life, and I'd do it all over again!"
