“Dr. Bensimon changed my life…”
I was born with a congenital breast deformity called Polands syndrome. Put simply, when I hit puberty, one of my breasts somewhat developed while the other one did not. This condition negatively affected every aspect of my life and I had no hope of it ever being corrected. Young, embarrassed, scared and alone, I told no one and suffered in silence for the ten most crucial years of my adolescence. Finally, at 23 I realized that if I didn’t tell someone about it, nothing would change and I would live like that for the rest of my life. So I made the decision to investigate plastic surgeons in my area. After viewing several centers websites and seeing nothing but large breasted, hot pink lingerie clad “patients of the month,” I finally found … a center that actually seemed to sincerely care about improving/enhancing patients appearances and lives more so than achieving an unrealistic level of “perfection” … Contacting [Dr. Bensimon] was the best decision I could have ever possibly made. I went to the consultation, frightened and embarrassed, but Dr. Bensimon was so sincere and reassuring. He was honest and realistic with me and explained all the possibilities. I knew right away that this was the person I wanted at my side through this experience. Throughout my entire breast augmentation with him he made sure we were on the same page and encouraged me to bring in photos, and encouraged my opinion, and just made sure to involve me completely in the entire process. Any surgeon could have just put implants in and called the outcome good, but Dr. Bensimon really took the challenge of my condition head on. It was a very difficult case (because of the awkward shape and different sizes of my breasts) but he really worked hard to make sure that what he was doing was going to achieve the most natural and symmetrical look possible and the result was way more than anything I could have ever hoped or dreamed for because of my breasts being so awkwardly shaped & different sized, I knew that they may never (even after augmentation) look completely symmetrical, but what he did for me is just amazing.I now have the breasts that I had once dreamed of having. I cannot believe what he has done for me. The outcome is way beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. It was a long process and a couple surgeries (because of the complexity of my condition) but I now look the way I once dreamed of and his experience, knowledge and creative thought made it all possible. Said with no exageration at all, Dr. Bensimon changed my life and my happiness and newfound confidence is owed to him. This is a man that puts his heart into his work and truly cares about his patients. This is exemplified in his exceptional work and the way he treats his patients.
