Great experience and customer service!

I had Andrea touch-up my lips after previously injecting them at a different facility and not being happy with the results. She was FANTASTIC and her procedure technique was not only PAINLESS but the results are already looking AMAZING. The office is beautiful as well as the staff and their customer service skills. I would HIGHLY recommend going to this facility for any of your surgical and/or...

24 Yo Plus Size Multiple Session Liposuction - Portland, OR

OVERVIEW I want to start off by saying I'm not normally one to write reviews or blog about myself in anyway. I am doing this partly because I found it really helpful reading others experience and seeing their pictures. But mostly because I had an amazing surgeon which I was lucky enough to be referred too, but based on his online presence I wouldn't have chosen him in the first place and I...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Easy surgery and great results! - Portland, OR

I had been thinking about getting rhinoplasty for awhile, but because my nose just needed minor changes, I was worried that I wouldn't see much difference or it wouldn't be worth my money. After meeting with Dr. Bensimon and his staff, I knew he was the right surgeon. His methods made the entire process very painless. Scheduling was easy. Consulting about expectations was easy. Surgery day...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I Couldn't Be Happier! Why Did I Wait So Long? - Tualatin, OR

After several years of considering a breast augmentation, I finally did it last month! I could not be happier! I had a recommendation to see Dr. Bensimon at The Bensimon Center. He listened to my wants and concerns. He addressed everything! And not just in a clinical way, he addressed me person to person. On the day of my surgery, he met with me and genuinely cared about how I was doing,...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Great experience

I had a rhinoplasty. Dr Bensimon surpassed all of my expectations. My nose looks amazing, I couldn’t be happier. On my first appointment I had many questions and Dr Bensimon answered all of my questions, as well as taking time to make sure I understood exactly what I was getting done. From the front desk team to the surgery team to Dr Bensimon they were always kind, professional and k...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Life Changing Rhinoplasty - Portland, OR

For years I have avoided letting anyone look at my profile. I even hated driving in traffic because I didn't want anyone to look at my horrible nose. Even though I still have slight bruising and swelling, I'm so proud of the work of art I proudly wear on my face. To say life-changing would be a great understatement. This is the face I wished to be born with. I seriously could cry (again)...

3 out of 5 stars Phenol Peel

Three Years Later After a Deep Phenol Peel (65 at the Time) - Portland OR

I had a rough time because I didn't expect to be struggling with my face for so long. It took 4 months to look decent. I am just guessing at this, but I think I was one of his first patients at his new location. At the time of the procedure they hadn't yet gotten their after-peel products, and I wish they would have suggested getting it beforehand. I was still a mess and outside running...
