I had a revision rhinoseptoplasty with Prof. Boccieri to remedy a first surgery with another surgeon. My situation was serious. Prof. Boccieri and his team went through 6 hours of surgery. All the staff proved to be humane and highly competent.
The surgery was very successful, now I can breathe perfectly, since before my left nostril was completely occluded. Prof. Boccieri solved all the aesthetic problems of my nose that was completely deformed after the first operation. Now I have a perfect profile and even the tip and the frontal part are aesthetically harmonious with my face. I recommend Prof. Boccieri to everyone because today he works almost exclusively on this type of surgery, which is a guarantee of high specialization.
P.S. When you choose a surgeon, find out if he is a member of any Italian or European association of plastic and/or aesthetic surgery.

I confirm the mastery of Prof Boccieri: I underwent a functional rhinosepturbinoplasty by him and the result went beyond all optimistic expectations: non-existent pain if not discomfort for the pads worn (5 days) , non-existent also the pain during the removal of the same ... fantastic result .... after 20 days still persists some swelling .... the shape of my nose is better than I hoped ... I breathe very well from both nostrils. I am more than satisfied ...
I want to answer you since I was operated by the surgeon on which you seek information (Prof. Armando Boccieri).
Three years ago I underwent a rhinoplasty surgery in Naples by another surgeon whose outcome was very negative, with compromise of the aesthetic and functional part. After three years I decided to rely on Prof. Boccieri to repair the damage suffered. Prof. Boccieri is specialized in plastic surgery and otolaryngology and specifically in nose surgery, as well as secondary or tertiary revisions.
The intervention lasted about 6 hours due to the seriousness of my clinical situation. Prof. Boccieri showed himself to be a great professional, humble and human, and of the utmost availability. The surgery was successful to perfection, I have completely regained the respiratory function, which before was limited to the right nostril and I have, now, a nose aesthetically perfect and harmonious on my face. The professor succeeded in an operation that he himself had repeatedly defined as complex.
After this surgery I can only say thank you to the Prof. for the way he conducted each phase both pre- and post-operatively.
I would like to say that for me, after a first surgery gone wrong, the choice of the surgeon was not a walk in the park and I came to Prof. Boccieri after undergoing several other visits with other professionals. In the end he won me over both for his humility and for his dedication during the visit and for his detailed explanations, as well as, afterwards, for the result obtained.
Hi! I am answering your question to help those who are in the situation of having to have cosmetic and/or functional nose surgery with the fear of running into the wrong hands. I was scheduled for secondary rhinoseptoplasty plus turbinates surgery. My situation was very complex: the septum was very deviated on all sides and the tip of the nose was devastated by a previous operation done in Milan that should have simply filed a small hump (which I just could not accept in adolescence). I found Dr. Boccieri on the internet (unfortunately I didn't have any connections who could advise me) and it was very helpful to read the reviews of others as well as view his website with all his work. I sent him an email with photos and he replied within a week explaining everything that needed to be done and going into technical details, which was very helpful since I had already developed a rough idea of what needed to be done (I am a medical student and with the few tools I have available I tried to get an idea). In Dr. Boccieri I found the technical competence (as evidenced by numerous international awards) and the humanity that I was looking for, he always reassured me, always answered phone calls and messages and I felt that he really took me to heart, so much so that a wonderful relationship was established. For those who were also worried about the surgery itself, I can say that for me it was less impactful than a strong cold or flu: it is not painful, just a bit of discomfort the day after surgery, I personally did not have even a bruise and the removal of swabs is an annoyance of a few seconds and then pull the first real breath of your life, for those who like me had always breathed very badly. Dr. Marianetti and Dr. Di Donfrancesco, who assisted Dr. Boccieri during the surgery, deserve wonderful words as well, they are wonderful doctors and wonderful people.
Yep, just like in the famous movie, my wife and I (Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck) spent a wonderful week in Rome.
Best to explain. I had two previous disastrous functional and cosmetic nose jobs. I waited nineteen years before going to see Prof. Armando Boccieri. For nineteen years I dragged myself through a daily suffering, no longer finding courage and confidence.
After this long period I was determined to face the problem again. I listened to more surgeons, sometimes emblazoned, other times attracted by bewitching sites beyond which there is the risk of running into inexperienced hands. After a year of research, studies on my case and consultations, I identified Prof. Boccieri as the solution. I presented myself to Dr. Boccieri, we could say, without a nose: a deeply saddle-shaped nose, an almost non-existent and yet deviated dorsum, noticeable pinching of the nasal wings. Not to mention the breathing. Finally I found the Professional and the sensitive man, who understands not only science, but even moral and psychological support in all phases, pre and post surgery.
I am writing in favor of Prof. Boccieri because today I can breathe, I no longer have problems with rhonchopathy, my night apnea is over and my nose, only thirty days after the surgery, looks like a natural face. I have a passion for oil painted portraits and could not have imagined a better job. In spite of the removal and grafting of two costal cartilages, of auricular cartilages, I would like to point out that I did not suffer at all. No suffering even at the extraction of the dreaded tampons. The clinic is a stone's throw from Villa Borghese, so on the third day after the operation my wife and I were at the National Gallery of Modern Art. The neighborhood is wonderful.
I am extremely grateful to Prof. Armando Boccieri and his staff. Dr. Vincenzo Di Donfrancesco, an exceptional person, is also worthy of praise.
