5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Amazing Doctor - Barrington, IL

Dr. Been is the best. He has the most incredible bedside manner and is always willing to take a call for questions or concerns. He is a skilled perfectionist who takes his time and creates an amazingly natural appearance. Absolutely no ego. I would trust him with any procedure and highly recommend him.

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...

18 Year Old, Pre-college - Barrington, IL

I wanted to get my nose done before leaving for college. Dr. Been and his staff made the process very easy and comforting. I was very nervous going into the whole process but Dr. Been addressed my concerns and made me feel at ease and like a patient not a number. I am very happy with the result and Dr. Been has answered all of my questions post procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Been and...

I'm All About my Nose! Barrington, IL

Being new to plastic surgery, I was very nervous, but I'm so happy with the results! The recovery was not bad at all which was my greatest fear, and of course not liking my new nose. Through my experience, If your doctor and you are on the same page, your vision will become a reality and you will get the results your looking for! I did and it's all thanks to Dr. Been! There are no bad questions!

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

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

My motivation was that I feel like like a young 55, but looked like an old 55!! I wanted to freshen up my look, but not look fake. The results were fantastic, and no one could tell I had the surgery - it looked so natural. Whatever scars there were, disappeared quickly. Now I feel confident pulling my hair back in a ponytail and leaving the house with no make-up!!

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

Turning 50 and Ready to Look 40 Again. :-) - Barrington, IL

I love what Dr. Been was able to do for the deep wrinkles around my mouth and my saggy cheeks. He did a combination of procedures and the results are FABULOUS!!! He used the Voluma on my cheekbones to lift my face a bit and reduce my jowls. Then he used fillers on the lip wrinkles along with a permanent plumper in my lips to keep them natural looking but full. I am confident to wear lipstick...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

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...
