Dr. Frank Scaccia is a qualified Dual Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Otolaryngologist, who specializes in cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift and treatment of sinus/nasal disorders.

Dr. Scaccia’s work has been life changing for me. He did my revision rhinoplasty after a previous doctor stole a year of my life with his terrible work. Dr. Becker had promised me, and I quote, that I would be his “posterchild for rhinoplasty but after 6 months of insisting it was just swelling, I was told that there was a “misunderstanding of how much could be done” and that “I was still a pretty girl, it wasn’t the end of the word.” I was devastated. My relationships and daily life suffered because I was so consumed with these...
I cannot say enough good things about my experience here. I’m 23 years old and have wanted to get my nose done since middle school. I finally decided to go through with it and am SO happy I found Dr. Scaccia. From day one, he made me feel very comfortable and confident about the procedure. The staff is so nice and friendly as well. I went in for surgery on a Friday and was back at work within 8 days. Everything went so smoothly. I just got my cast off a couple days ago and I’m BEYOND happy with...
I'm a little over one week post-op for a revision rhinoplasty (just had the cast removed yesterday), and can already say this doctor is amazing at what he does! I had my original rhinoplasty by a different doctor 10 years ago and was left with a "ok" nose. There was nothing major about my nose that stood out as obviously bad or deformed, but I never felt like it was quite right. I was cautious to get a second rhinoplasty because I was nervous it still wouldn't be quite right, or worse. However, when I found Dr. Scaccia I...
Dr.Scaccia was the only surgeon who looked at the inside along with the outside of my nose during the initial consultation and found out that I could breathe better along with having a better looking nose. He pays attention to detail and is very meticulous. I really like the end result of my nose surgery and would recommend him to anyone looking to have a rhinoplasty and septum surgery along with other types of plastic surgery. Along with this the staff are very nice and caring. They also helped me not feel as nervous before the actual surgery....
After years of chronic sinus infections that interfered with my wellbeing and quality of life, I turned to Dr. Scaccia for sinus surgery, septoplasty, and rhinoplasty and couldn't have been happier with the results. Not only can I breathe better (noticeable immediately), my cosmetic results look beyond amazing! And the best part of it all is that I still look like "me", which was very important to what my end desired result was. Dr. Scaccia spent hours with me during pre-opp appointments to explain everything and answer all of my questions and all of the nurses and staff in...
Seriously, I have never been breathing that easily through my nose. The procedure was done so professionally that i did not feel a thing and have not even taken a single pain reliever pill after that. I had a small sinus infection after that and could breathe through the nose...never before! This is in addition to some cosmetics done by the Doc. Long story short, if you want a professional to do the job - Dr. Scaccia is your only choice....
After so many years of sinus issues and breathing issues, I decided to do some research on the right specialist to go to! Fast forward, I decided that Dr. Scaccia was the surgeon I would see! I cannot say anything but positive things about everyone in the office!!! The staff and operating room nurses were truly wonderful! Dr Scaccia was absolutely professional yet warm and made me feel very comfortable at every one of my appointments! My surgery and recuperation went very well and I am so so happy with my results! Thank you Dr. Scaccia and staff for...
Had a tonsillectomy, nose reconstruction, along with many other ailments that made me have trouble breathing. Dr. Scaccia and his staff did a wonderful job making sure the procedure and recovery went as smooth and painless as possible. Their care really relieved the stress that can come with major surgery. I recommend his practice to anyone with breathing problems as well as post nasal drip issues....
Dr. Scaccia is an amazing surgeon. He takes his time to explain your medical condition. I had sinus surgery Oct. 3rd 2018. I no longer suffer from sinus congestion, & I now can breathe through my nose. Thanks to a great surgeon. Also I would like to thank his staff who were also helpful....
I chose Dr. Scaccia’s to perform my procedure because of his education, knowledge, skills as a doctor and surgeon and his professionalism. In addition, Dr. Scaccia’s office staff are extremely efficient and very nice, offering any help I could have needed. It is a big plus that Dr. Scaccia has an onsite operating room so I didn’t have to go to a hospital. I truly believe that Dr. Scaccia takes enormous pride in his work and wants the best for his patients. I am incredibly happy with the results of my procedure and I totally recommend Dr. Scaccia....
