Rhinoplasty – made famous by the entertainment industry with the term "nose job" – is our most popular surgical procedure at our office in Great Neck, NY. While rhinoplasty can give your nose a new size or shape, it's also used to correct a number of physical issues, including:
If you're a mature adult in Great Neck, NY who is wondering if rhinoplasty is right for you, schedule a consultation – we'd be happy to talk about your options. With rhinoplasty, we can:
Change the sloping angle of your nose
Correct defects at the point from the tip to your upper lip
Narrow or widen the width of your nose
Increase or reduce the size or length of your nose
Correct bumps and other issues at the bridge of the nose
Change the shape of the nostrils
Enlarge or reduce nasal passages
Although rhinoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis, it's a very visible procedure – so give yourself time to heal. After the surgery, you'll feel discomfort, puffiness, and pain in your nasal area. The first day in particular will be a bit uncomfortable; we recommend that you stay in bed, with your head elevated.
Patients with vision problems can wear contact lenses during their recovery, but glasses can interfere with the healing. Contact our Great Neck, NY office today for a free consultation!
Today I am a little over 2 weeks postoperative and could not be happier with the results so far. Dr. DeVita took all the time I needed to answer questions prior and after surgery, checked to make sure all was going well after surgery and to just monitor my progress. He is a wonderful, skilled surgeon and his staff is friendly and helpful as well.

This is the second surgery I have had done by Dr. Devita. I am beyond thrilled with the results and would recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing plastic surgeon. His staff is professional and courteous and always super helpful with any questions / concerns I had.

3 weeks ago I had rhinoplasty performed by Doctor DeVita and not only did his work change my life, but it also influenced what I want to study in college. I have wanted this surgery since I was 13 years old, and now being 18 right before entering my freshman year of college, my parents let me have this surgery. I was so nervous going through all the consultations and also anxious because my time was limited. From the moment Doctor DeVita met with me, I knew he was the surgeon for me. He moved the process along and made sure I would go to college comfortably with a nose I'd love. He walked me through the surgery and I felt great. I had my cast taken off two weeks ago and my nose was beautiful and that moment changed my life forever. Recovery wasn't difficult, he called the night after my surgery to make sure I was ok, I didn't bruise, and I was back into my normal routine after a few days. I can't express enough how life changing this was for me and what an amazing doctor he was, I was so lucky to have him perform this surgery for me. Everyday I see myself in the mirror and I couldn't be happier :)

Dr.Devita is an excellent plastic surgeon! He has performed two cosmetic procedures on me. The outcome was better than I even imagined! Amazing doctor! Highly recommend!
- Melanie Hoops. 7/10/2019
Took me 3 years to finally find the right surgeon to repair my nose that I broke playing rugby, and more importantly a surgeon who could get the procedure adequately covered by my insurance. Dr. Devita did both, and I can finally breathe properly again. Very happy with both the functional and cosmetic results from the surgery. And the recovery was far quicker than I had expected
- Gareth Moore. 2/14/2019
Dr. DeVita is an excellent plastic surgeon. He had done both my rhinoplasty and otoplasty and I’m very happy with the results. My ears are now perfectly symmetrical and my new nose fits my face much better. Dr. DeVita took time to understand what I was looking for and also offered his recommendations as to what would work well with the rest of my face/body. On the day of the surgery, he made me feel calm and addressed all my concerns. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
- Lucia Lipcic. 0/14/2019
Great experience with Dr. DeVita. Would highly recommend to anyone. Expert in his practice, great guy.
- Jennifer Peteka. 0/10/2019
I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Devita. This was my first experience with plastic surgery and Dr. Devita made it comfortable and transparent to me. He explained to me an extended tummy tuck and lipo was a big surgery and would have a long recovery and with a 3 month old he wanted to make sure I was had support at home. He took his time to explain the procedure and what was best for me. After my surgery he made it his business to call me or text me every night for the first week to make sure everything was ok and continues to see me once a week almost 4 weeks post op. He has come out into the waiting room to meet my husband and my father on separate occasions to make sure I was doing well at home. You really couldn’t ask for more of a doctor especially a busy plastic surgeon. I would definetly recommend and be using him again if I chose to have future procedures.

My daughter recently had rhinoplasty surgery by Dr. DeVita, and what a wonderful experience it was. From the beginning, Dr. De Vita put us at ease, and we knew immediately that he was the surgeon for us. He is affable, Kind, thorough and professional. He met with us pre-op and explained what to expect every step of the way. On the day of surgery, we arrived at The Plastic Surgery Group’s surgery suites which were updated and impeccably clean. Dr. De Vita and his staff were so professional, taking care of our daughter from the beginning. Post-op he followed up with phone calls. The results my daughter got exceeded her expectations! She loves her new nose! Dr. DeVita is a very talented surgeon, and it was our very good fortune to find him. Thank you, Dr. De Vita!

I recently went to Dr DeVita for a consult. I had a double mastectomy 7 years ago and I was unhappy with the results all these years later. I also had concerns about a severe case of diastasis recti that I was presenting with after the birth of my third child. I knew immediately that Dr DeVita was the doctor that I was going to choose. I have seen many doctors with my history of breast cancer, from surgeons to oncologists, and he is the best of the best. My husband agreed. My reconstruction and abdominoplasty were a success. Dr DeVita was just as kind and caring in the hospital as he was in his office. Before surgery he was engaging and personable, talking to me and putting me at ease. After surgery his care and concern was remarkable. He willingly accepted phone calls or texts from my husband with our concerns. He even got on the phone with me when I needed "a pick me up" talk !! My follow up visits
( which are always super super stressful for me) have been easier with him. He is patient and understands and acknowledges my fears. I am so grateful that I was recommended to Dr DeVita...
- Janine Corbett. 6/10/2018
Doctor DeVita is a master at his craft and sincerely compassionate. I Highly recommend him to my family and friends without hesitation.
- Vanessa DAntone. 6/5/2018
Dr DaVita is a professional friendly face that you want to see. He performed a procedure where previously I had open heart surgery (with several complications) and the scar is definitely something I will live looking at. I've gotten many compliments on how my scar looks. He's always friendly and concerned with how you feel. I had no choice with this surgery, but I can't wait to return for a tummy tuck !
- Lillian Escobar. 5/21/2018
2 years post op and I am still amazed at the results. DeVita changed my life for the better and I could not be happier. I received the most natural rhinoplasty. I wouldn't trust anyone else, he's a true artist!!
- gabby hardoon. 5/8/2018
I am 20 and I am on blood thinners due to a blood clotting condition. I had been to a doctor before who wouldn't even talk about what he might do he just dismissed me. Doctor Devita, while being worried about the blood thinners, took time to consider the surgery instead of dismissing me right away and he agreed to do it. My breast reduction was the best thing to happen to me and I am so glad Doctor Devita worked with me.
- Giulia Laraia. 3/3/2018
I came into my consult with no pictures of what I wanted, but told Dr. Devita I wanted a very subtle nose job. He knew exactly what I was looking for and what to do, and although extremely nervous, I trusted his knowledge and work. I’m now 1 week out from removing the cast and I can’t even explain the flood of compliments that I get on a daily basis. Although I’m still adjusting to my slightly new look, I know that I’m going to be in love with my new nose once all of the swelling has gone down. Dr. Devita really KNOWS NOSES. ;o)
- Brittany Trezza. 2/7/2018
My experience with Dr. Devita from my first appointment, actual surgery, and follow ups all went really well. After having 2 kids and working out 3 to 4 times per week (between Zumba and kickboxing) and watching my diet like crazy I still couldn’t lose that little pudge of fat on my belly. So I did some research online and came across Dr. Devita’s practice. On my initial consultation Dr. Devita showed me a big book of all his cases which showed how many successful surgeries he had completed. I was not only impressed with his work but excited to know that I can return to the size 4 I was before having my kids. I am now 6 weeks postop. My husband and I are both stunned with the transformation from before and after. I can honestly admit that I look better now then I did before having my kids. I am excited to continue this journey and see the changes over the next few months. I highly recommend Dr. Devita if you are considering a tummy tuck. On a last note I would like to say I was not only pleased with the quality of Dr. Devitas work but also very happy with the overall experience. Dr. Devitas staff was very professional, had me in and out of all my appointments quickly, and took their time in answering all my questions.

Dr Devita is the very best
- Nicole Blumhagen. 1/7/2018
I had a MRSA infection in my sternoclavicular joint, which is the joint that connects the clavicle and sternum. On day 6 of my hospital stay I was told the infection was getting worse and I would require immediate surgery. There wasn't any time to research surgeons, this had to be done immediately. I was fortunate to be at St Francois Hospital which provided incredible care. I was even more fortunate to have Dr Devita as the surgeon who handled the chest muscle flap after the cardio thoracic surgeon cut out the joint and surrounding bone. Dr Devita is a skilled surgeon, and though his work on me was not cosmetic, his skill and experience as a surgeon was pretty clear. I am 6 weeks post op, and for the most part i'm back to life with little discomfort. Every time I saw Dr. Devita for follow up visits, he didn't hurry in and out of the room, He took the necessary time with me, letting me know how I was doing and making sure all my questions were answered.

I am one month post op from a revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Devita. My circumstances where unique in that not only was I incredibly nervous because of a previously botched rhinoplasty but I had recently also broke my nose so I was very unhappy with the size, shape and functionality of my nose. My nose has been an ongoing issue my entire life and I can say from the bottom of my heart Dr. Devita has given me a new lease on life. I was concerned about potentially making my nose worse by having another surgery but the results I have now are pretty substantial in both breathing and cosmetically. I can't express how pleased I am with the results so far and look forward to the swelling to go down more. I believe Dr. Devitas surgical and artistry ability is one of a kind and strongly recommend any individual interested in a similar procedure to meet with him.
- Robert Skepner. 11/26/2017
thorough, patient, experienced, concerned, skilled... what more could you ask for - extremely happy with my rhinoplasty results - this is something you have completely no control over but I am glad I put my trust in Dr. Devita. fully recommend.
- Michele Hall. 10/22/2017
Great facility. Great people. Great experience. Never been happier.
- Saleena Ram. 7/23/2017
Great Doctor, Helpful with all information and questions no surprises with my surgery, besides an infection in my nose that appeared about a week after the cast was taken off. I recommend this surgeon because of his staff and help throughout my surgery day. Nurses made me feel comfortable and safe before i was put under.
- Emma Costello. 6/13/2017
I couldn't be more than happier and thankful to Doctor De vita!! I highly recommend him along with his exceptional and caring, experience and professional staff. From the moment that I walked into doctor De Vita's office I felt comfortable and trusted in his long medical experience. He did a remarkable tummy tuck on me and I couldn't be more grateful. I really appreciate him walking with me through my recovery process. I am in my third month since my surgery has been completed and I'm feeling outstanding. Dr. De Vita is an incredible surgeon, he is the best!! God bless Doctor De Vita and his fantastic courteous and caring team. Just want to say thank you very much to all for been good care of me! :)
- Evelyn Awad. 5/26/2017
I will start off by saying that Dr. Devita has changed my life. I was recommended by my mother, who had a breast augmentation from him years ago. When she wanted to do this surgery she has consulted with nine different plastic surgeons before she found Dr. Devita. From that, I just knew that Dr. Devita was the one. Not only is he an artist, but he made me feel very comfortable and has answered all my questions. I kept switching my surgery dates because something always came up and he was very patient with me. He never rushed me out and ALWAYS treated me with kindness. I am now 4 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation and words can not express how good I feel. My breast look & feel so natural and that is exactly what I wanted. The morning of the surgery, Dr. Devita, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, and the rest of the staff were so welcoming. They placed me in a comfortable setting and were there to take care of me before & after surgery. I have never felt more confident in myself and I highly recommend Dr. Devita to anyone who needs any type of surgery. Lastly, I want to thank Dr. Devita and the rest of the staff for all the hard work!!
- Linda Sanzo. 5/21/2017
Amazing doctor. I had a deviated septum and crooked nose and had to get a rhinoplasty. Dr. DeVita really did an outstanding job. He and his whole team really went above and beyond. The results are incredible, I couldn't be happier. He's also very caring. He calls the night of the surgery and the following days to follow up and make sure everything is ok. Highly recommend.
- Magen Elishiv. 5/13/2017
Dr. DeVita did amazing work and I am so happy with everything he has done. I am almost 2 weeks post-op from a corrective Breast surgery by Dr. DeVita. I had surgery 3 months ago by a different doctor and was botched I had many complications, after 3 months of complications, and what I call "hell", I went to Dr. DeVita for help. I was referred to him by a friend who had multiple good experiences with him...He took so much time to review and discuss the procedure and listen to exactly what I wanted the end result to be. He was detail in what could be fixed and what couldn't be completely corrected. I am so pleased with the results. He made all corrections necessary and fixed all that needed to be fixed exactly to how he described it. After my last surgery I didn't know what to expect I had so much discomfort, pain and looked terrible for 3 months...Like I said I am now almost 2 weeks post-op and I am feeling great able to function normally, healing well and my breast look great! I would also like to take the time to recognize his staff as well, everyone was so nice and helpful and comforting, I was anxious to have this surgery sooner than later because of what I was dealing with from the first surgery, it was Easter week and they didn't have an opening they worked on it and did all they could and they made sure to get me in ASAP for surgery...Thank You LeeAnne and all the rest of the staff. As a patient who has experienced what a bad doctor can do, I would never recommend or review a doctor unless I had complete faith in him...With that said, I would Highly recommend Dr. DeVita to anyone and have already to a couple of friends...Thank you Dr. DeVita, there not enough words to say how thankful I am!!!
- Dana Agliato. 3/26/2017
Dr DeVita and his team were absolutely amazing. They make you feel confident and secure. I broke my nose twice when I was younger so I decided to get rhinoplasty done. The results came out amazing and I couldn't have been happier! Dr. DeVita answers all questions and always gets back to you! Seven months into my healing process I fell at home hit my nose and it started bleeding. I panicked and called the office and Dr. DeVita saw me within 2 hours (thankfully everything was Okay). I just shows how much he cares about his patients. The whole process was a success not only can I breathe better the results are beautiful. Truly is amazing at what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
- Erika Schiff. 0/10/2017
I went to Dr. Devita's office when I was 16 for a breast reduction. He was so understanding and caring about how insecure I felt about my breasts. He understood and knew I need this done. Him and his staff are WONDERFUL people and all have a great heart. I 100%% recommend everyone to go to Dr. Devita, he really did such a wonderful job and I'm so greatful that I found him.
- Erin Gallagher. 11/5/2016
I recently used Dr Devita for rhinoplasty, I was referred by a close friend who had wonderful rhinoplasty results with Dr Devita. I'm so happy with my results so far 5 weeks post op, everything went very smoothly from my consult to my surgery. The nurse that helped me before and after surgery Her name was Wendy she was great and made me feel so comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr Devita !
- Ashley Edge. 5/8/2016
I had a breast augmentation in 2009 and Dr. Devita was the best. Very kind, called and checked on me while at home.
Very good at what he does.
- Tilicia Estrada. 11/14/2015
I waited 29 years to have my nose fixed and met with tons of plastic surgeons and never felt secure and/or comfortable enough with their work. I saw Dr. DeVita's work on a friend of mine and her nose came out gorgeous. Immediately I booked a consultation, felt 100%% positive that Dr. DeVita was the right doctor for me. He made me feel so comfortable and confident that my severely crooked and broken nose could be straightened out and that he could fix my deviated septum. The surgery went way better than I had ever expected, no pain and recovery was quick. I am only 2 weeks fresh out of surgery and ALREADY LOVEEE my new nose. It is 100%% straight, no bump, very natural looking and not to mention my breathing is already much better. Dr. DeVita and his staff made this an amazing experience for me. I would recommend him hands down!
- Maria Licari. 3/29/2015
After a weight loss of 110 lbs, Dr Devita has transformed my body and changed my life. 10 years ago i had an abdominoplasty with him. The results were so incredible that just 3 months ago I went back to him once again and had brachioplasty and mastopexy.
These procedures have taken 20 years off of my body.
He is truly a perfectionist, an artist. He stayed in close contact with me throughout my entire recovery (which is unheard of these days). I asked many questions and he answered them patiently in a language that I could understand. He is kind, professional and concerned.
Each time I have a follow up appointment with him, I feel that he is genuinely excited to see me and the results. He is awesome and I highly recommend him and his staff. I love him!!! Go for a consultation. You will love him too....
- Ilene Rogoff. 10/2/2014
Throughout adolescence and up until my surgery I always felt extremely self-conscious about my nose. It wasn't the worst, but I felt it was just a bit too large at the end and stuck out just a little too far. I felt as if my nose did not belong on my face. My procedure went very smoothly and Dr. DeVita did not even have to break my nose, he just removed some cartilage. Recovery was painful, but the worst of it was over after about 4 days. Just a few weeks later I was back at work and barely anyone noticed something was different, which is exactly what I wanted. Over a year later my family and I could not be happier with my nose. I feel that this is the nose I was meant to have and that a great weight has been lifted off of my own self-image and comfort.
Dr. DeVita is a very energetic and positive presence. Every meeting I've had with him, from my first consultation to later follow ups, have been nothing but pleasant. He does speak very fast(I think because he is so busy) so think of any questions you have before hand and make sure to interject and get them in! I was referred to Dr. DeVita by an acquaintance who had received a rhinoplasty from him. Upon our first meeting he offered me a book of before and after pictures of hundreds of his past rhinoplasty patients (and those were just from those who had given consent to use their pictures). I was beyond impressed with his previous work and even came across two people in the book who I know, but had no idea they had had the surgery done! The book was all of the validation I needed and I felt very comfortable proceeding with Dr. DeVita to have my rhinoplasty. Now my nose is exactly what I always wanted and I am very grateful to have come across such a talented plastic surgeon as Dr. DeVita. I highly recommend him. His work speaks for itself.

In August 2013, I underwent a breast reduction with Dr.Greg DeVita.
As a medical professional, I have been familiar with the expert surgical skills of
Dr. DeVita, whom has been practicing cosmetic surgery for close to 30 years.
His surgical talent, competence and knowledge are well-regarded within the medical community. Dr. DeVita is the "medical professionals" cosmetic surgeon-chosen by nurse's and physicians for their own family members, which is always a reliable indicator of a talented cosmetic surgeon.
From my initial consultation through my surgery, my confidence in Dr. DeVita was unwavering. It was a tremendous decision for me to choose to have this procedure, however, I am 100 percent satisfied with my results. He was able to expertly reduce my larger breasts into an absolutely fabulous creation of enviable breasts!
I was well-prepared by Dr. DeVita and his staff with regard to the immediate and short-term post-op period; all demonstrated meticulous attention to detail through the entire process.
Dr. DeVita's work is absolute perfection. I highly recommend him and have the beautiful results to prove it!
