About 10 years before visiting Dr. Bentkover, with the intention of correcting my partial cleft lip nose, a surgeon performed rhinoplasty on me. To my disappointment, the surgery left me with a further bent nose and a curved bump at the tip. I was dismayed and had lost trust and faith in the rhinoplasty practice.
Dr. Bentkover and his staff changed my nose, my confidence, and my opinion of the rhinoplasty experience.
My nose is straight, natural to my face, smaller; the shape is normal, and the bump is completely gone. I'm surprised by how good my side profile looks. When I view my "before" pictures I'm blown away by the degree of difference Dr. Bentkover made – to the point where I have a moment of disbelief that my "before" pictures are real and what I see in the mirror is true.
The entire experience: from my first step into Dr. Bentkover's office - to waking after my procedures - to the ongoing follow-up visits were and continue to be extraordinary. Dr. Bentkover and his staff listen to my concerns, engage in actual dialogue, explain pros and cons, never rush, and treat me like I'm part of the family. Dr. Bentkover views and cares for my nose as if it were his own – he actually tells me it's "his." He is passionate about all aspects of the process, has amazing attention to detail, and educates me on what he does and how. Because of Dr. Bentkover's patient commitment and surgical precision we achieved amazing results.
My experience working with Dr. Bentkover's office is superior compared to the incident with my first rhinoplasty. For me, without a doubt, I look and feel better. I wish I had met Dr. Bentkover much sooner. He is a miracle worker and I will forever be grateful.
Dr. Bentkover, thank you for changing "our" nose!
