Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nose job) is a surgical procedure that aims to correct the cosmetic issues that a patient may have with his or her nose. A rhinoplasty procedure is tailored to the patient’s specific needs because no two noses or faces are alike. For example, one patient may want to correct the appearance of a large bump on the bridge of her nose, while another may feel self-conscious about the overall size of their nose and want it made smaller.

Dr. Robert Vitolo creates a unique nose for each patient that seeks his skills. “With the eye of an artist and the skilled hands of a seasoned surgeon he strives to make your vision of the ‘perfect nose’ a reality.”


The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are patients who feel self-conscious about their nose for a variety of aesthetic and medical reasons. For example, some patients may want to remove a bump on the nose or correct a bulbous tip. Others may feel that their nose is “too ethnic looking,” or sometimes not ethnic looking enough. Other patients wish to correct the result of injury or trauma to their nose.

Rhinoplasty can be a strictly cosmetic procedure or a reconstructive one when it is designed to correct an injury, congenital or developmental deformity of the nose.  Often, both reasons warrant having a rhinoplasty.

 In short, everyone has a unique reason for wanting a rhinoplasty and a vision of what they want in a nose. It is Dr. Vitolo’s job to assimilate all these factors and, using his vast experience in performing rhinoplasties, to create the “unique” nose for each person that comes to him.

All candidates for a rhinoplasty procedure should be realistic in their expectations of the results of their rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty in itself cannot change one’s life, but for many people it can provide confidence to achieve their “Personal Best”!

Dr. Vitolo is pleased to offer patients a no-scar rhinoplasty procedure. Thanks to decades of surgical experience and training in performing all types of rhinoplasties, Dr. Vitolo is able to perform the surgery completely within the nostrils, without leaving a scar on the front of the nose. Yes, it is easier to make an incision on the front of the nose and lift all the tissues of the nose, opening it like a book. Dr Vitolo’s philosophy is “patients don’t come to him to do a procedure the easy way, but in the best way for the patient without leaving a needless scar on the nose, just for the sake of expediency”.

Dr Vitolo’s “skill set” which is based on decades of experience, allows him to visualize what needs to be corrected and make the improvements to the nose, including correcting some breathing problems completely through the nostrils. The only time he would make an incision on the nose is if the nostrils are too large, and need to be made smaller. In these rare cases, he reduces the size of the nostrils, leaving a scar in the crease the edge of the nostril makes with the face, so it is completely hidden.


Dr. Vitolo performs his rhinoplasties under general anesthesia in his, state of the art, AAAASF Certified ambulatory surgical facility which is designed to ensure that your procedure will be performed in a safe comfortable setting. After the surgery, which usually takes an hour and a half, you will have some mild discomfort and will be given medications to minimize it. You will have a small plaster cast taped to your nose to maintain the position of the tissues and to protect it from injury. You will go home after a full recovery, with the whole experience taking usually about 4 or 5 hours.

The cast will stay on for about five days and will be removed by Dr. Vitolo at your first post-operative visit. During your recovery, you can go about your normal (non-exercise) activities as you will feel fine. In fact, some people will go to work after the second day, but that is a personal choice.


Right after the cast is removed, you will see a change in the shape of the nose, but this will only be about 70 or 80 percent of the final result. The final result develops over several months as the residual swelling decreases and the skin drapes down over the newly constructed nasal framework. The final result can take six months or longer, but since the daily change is so minimal, you will not even notice it, until you compare it to the preoperative photographs. Patients are usually very happy with the natural appearance of their new noses and are glad they underwent the procedure at the hands of Dr. Vitolo. Dr. Vitolo specializes in creating noses that look natural and proportional to your facial features!
