Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Patient Experience Testimonial
"What sets Dr. Lamperti apart from other surgeons is that he was the most attentive and "present" during the consultation. I met with many rhinoplasty specialists and general plastic surgeons during my research, and Dr. Lamperti was the only surgeon who actually spent the full allotted time (60 minutes) of the consultation with me. He took the "before" images of my face himself, and created the "after" images so we could discuss and agree on my post-op look. He fully explained the surgical process and planned his approach for the most controlled and precise results. For my nose, that meant an "open" rhinoplasty surgery. Most of all, he was truly and sincerely a kind person. This was a rare quality to find among the surgeons I met with in Portland and Seattle!
Consultations with other surgeons were far more disappointing: I was rushed through one consultation in under 15 minutes, I was up-sold on a chin implant by another surgeon for an extra $3,000, I watched one administrative assistant create the "after" photos and guess at my surgical outcome, I discussed anesthesia options and the surgical process with another surgeon's non-board certified assistant or RN (credentials were never disclosed) because he was double-booked with another patient, and I was dismissed by yet another surgeon when I expressed concerns about his recommendation to only wait 2 weeks post-op to begin high-impact exercise training for a half marathon.
Obviously, I chose Dr. Lamperti.
On the day of surgery, everyone on Dr. Lamperti's team was very warm and friendly, which put me at ease. I had clear expectations of my post-op recovery and clear instructions of what to do and what to avoid for the first 4 weeks. Plus, staff from the surgical center and Dr. Lamperti himself called to check on me after the surgery was over! It was nice knowing that I was not just another patient in a revolving door - the whole team actually cared about how I was feeling post-op.
I'm currently 3 weeks into my recovery, and even though the swelling has not fully resolved, I'm ridiculously happy with the results. After 34 years of living with my old nose, I never thought I would look in the mirror and feel proud of my reflection. I'm happy to say that my new nose has the profile and front views that I expected from the "after" photos that Dr. Lamperti created. Plus, my new nose still fits with the rest of my facial features so I don't look like a completely different person. I am very pleased with the entire experience and feel that it was well worth the time and money that I invested. I would highly recommend Dr. Lamperti to anyone who is looking for a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon in the Pacific Northwest area!"
