5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Amazing Doctor - Barrington, IL

Dr. Been performed rhinoplasty and septoplasty on my daughter. Because the work is on the face, we were concerned about having a doctor who was familiar with the inside as well as the outside of the nose, due to breathing issues. He spent a significant amount of time explaining the procedure to my daughter and me, and his understanding and caring personality, as well as pictures we viewed of his work convinced me that he was the right doctor. We also wanted someone who we knew would be available following the procedure in case we had questions or concerns. We did, and within minutes he not only returned our call, but was brave enough to give us his cell number, which we used a few times. He never got annoyed and always answered our questions right away. He is super attentive, has no ego whatsoever, which is rare for a plastic surgeon and is a true perfectionist. My daughter's bruising was typical, but her healing was quick and she was truly ready to return to school and her social life right after removing her splint. It's hard to believe her nose could look better, and it's only been 2 weeks. His work is so natural and he takes the time to be sure it fits the face. We are so thrilled with him and would use him for any plastics procedure. 5 stars overall!

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Dr. Been is AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about him OR my new nose.

Dr. Been is undoubtedly one of the best doctors (if not THE best) I have ever had. I was nervous about the procedure-- both because my septum was severely deviated, causing breathing difficulty, and because I wanted my new nose to look pretty different (bridge narrowed, tip refined, etc.) Dr. Been walked me through what was and wasn't possible in a very candid and unbelievably...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr. Been exceeded all of my expectations - Rhinoplasty

I had 4 initial consultations with other surgeons, prior to my first consult with Dr. Been. I had been told at all of my appointments that my surgery would be especially complicated. I had wide-set nasal bones, a large dorsal hump, a downward sloping tip, slight right deviated septum, and thick, fatty skin, that would make achieving a smaller, more feminine nose close to impossible. At my...

Eyelid Pinch, Cheeks and Neck - Much Needed Rejuvenation. - Barrington, IL

Dr. Been was really, really awesome. I knew exactly what to expect and there were no unpleasant surprises. He and his office were totally available to me. I knew how to get a hold of him 24/7 if needed - but it was not needed. They were kind and patient and I would definitely do it again. I was very happy.

27 Years Old with No Lips to Start - Barrington, IL

I went to a med spa originally for a restilyn filler for my lips and I loved it! But, because I had barely any lips to begin with I was already told that I would most likely want to come back for another syringe and I did.... The med spa left my lips uneven (worst feeling ever) . My gynecologist actually suggested Dr. Been and told me he was the best in the area... I called and made an...
