What Therapy Couldn't Accomplish, This Man Did. I Am So Very Happy with my Results. Omaha, NE

My nose was broken in childhood by my father's...

My nose was broken in childhood by my father's live-in girlfriend who abused us every chance she got. Over the years, I was teased for the unusual shape of my nose and was forced to remember the abuse every time I heard those comments or saw my reflection. My husband paid for me to have it fixed, just to make me happy. What a love...

We flew into Omaha for the consult and I felt instinctively that he was the one. Maybe I should have consulted with others--I intended to--but I didn't. And I'm so glad I chose Dr. Denenberg. He answered every question I had and made it clear that he would answer any other questions. We corresponded via email for awhile and I felt like he listened to me, heard my expectations and hopes, and then he ultimately delivered.

His office staff were fantastic and so warm and friendly. Everyone there seemed to genuinely care about my well-being and were thrilled with my happiness and results right along with me. Dr. Denenberg himself was lovely. He listened attentively, explained every single item of importance to my satisfaction, and was honest about what he could accomplish. I felt secure and trusted my doctor, which eased the anxiety so much.

It's been over ten years now and I'm thrilled with my results. I have NO visible scar. It's just not there. I don't know if that's just indicative of my healing abilities or skin quality, but nope, no scar.

After the surgery, he was patient with my calling about swelling and my insecurities related to that. You really do need to be patient with the swelling. Looking back on old emails, I have to laugh because I gave it ten days before freaking out. 10+ years later, I promise you the results at ten days are NOT indicative of final result! Give it time.

Getting this done was beneficial not only to my appearance but to my self-esteem and confidence. I look like me, like who I was supposed to look like if the abuse hadn't happened. My nose is just a nose now, not a symbol of the terror I lived through, and not a topic of conversation for others.

I had this surgery done before the convenience of quality camera phones, so I'm digging through stuff looking for my before pictures. I have no casual profile pics from before, because I never let anyone take them. I wanted no documentation of my flaw. The only clear before pic I have is the one Dr. Denenberg took before the surgery and it's packed up somewhere. I'll post it as soon as I find it! I also have a couple during surgery pics which are a bit vomit-inducing, but I think are pretty cool. :)

***NOTE: I had septoplasty done at the same time as the rhino, so two procedures. I couldn't select that option from the drop-down menu and didn't want to write a second review just for the septo.

Dr. Denenberg is warm and friendly, but honest and open. His approach is positive and he is a gifted artist. He treated me far better than any doctor I've ever interacted with--actually listening to me. He studied the structure of my nose and told me what was possible and smiled at me and said, "Oh, I can help". Hearing those words after years of living with the pain of abuse right on my face was balm to the soul, no joke. I left his office feeling excited...and so hopeful. He is communicative and down-to-earth. I always felt like my questions and feelings related to the surgery were important. Ten plus years later, I still remember his gentleness and warmth and the trust I felt being in his care. Great doctor!
