Rhinoplasty journey - I had Rhinoplasty with Dr. Bensimon May 13, 2021. I'm extremely happy with the experience and my results! (And I'm still slightly bruised and swollen). Dr. B genuinely cares about his patients and the outcome of their surgery results. I could tell right away at my consult he loves what he does. The entire staff is kind and caring.Consultation: The facility is absolutely beautiful! Even he surgery room! I was welcomed and felt comfortable from the moment I walked in. Danell greeted me and checked me in. (She's also taken a million my calls and is always so patient and helpful.) soon I was taken back to a room and made comfortable. Dr. B came in and explained everything about Rhinoplasty, answered all my questions and discussed my expectations. Later that day Wendy called me to I've me my price quote and schedule me. She is also very kind and helpful! Pre-Op Appointment: More

Great Surgeon, Great Staff, Great Results!!!!!! - Dr. Bensimon is fabulous. He is kind, caring and honest. He did what suited me, and gave me exactly what I asked for. I know it's hard to trust just anyone, but I put my full trust in Dr. Bensimon and I won't let any other surgeon touch me ever again.The staff at his clinic are the kindest, most caring people you will ever meet.Lastly, the recovery was quick and painless.Lisa P.

Painless Mommy Makeover - Dr. Bensimon has wonderful bedside manner. His entire staff was so caring and lovely. I had very little discomfort the sedation and not having to be put fully under as well as his pain relief method made recovery incredibly easy. I did not have to lose weight before the procedure and the results are perfect for my frame. I have never been thin always had a lot of muscle but 4 large babies... More

I had an absolutely amazing experience—my butt looks great! - This was my first time having a cosmetic procedure done (Butt Augmentation) and I was not sure what to expect. I've always felt that I've had no butt at all, and didn't like the way my jeans would always sag, and felt "droopy". After calling a few doctors in the Portland area, only to be rejected because they didn't work on Male anatomy - I was kindly redirected to Dr. Bensimon's office. His... More

I had a minor complication from a previous rhinoplasty and from the moment I met with Dr. Bensimon, I felt confident this was the person I wanted to handle my procedure. From beginning to end, my entire experience what incredibly positive and I am incredibly happy with the results of my procedure. I would recommend Dr. Bensimon to anyone with absolute confidence.

Highly Recommend! I would ABSOLUTELY go back for any other procedures - I am someone who is extremely picky (especially for my first surgery) and therefore I put a lot of time and energy into researching surgeons in Oregon who I felt could give me the results I wanted. I looked at every doctor on Real Self and felt that Dr. Bensimon had the best before & after photos (in regards to the look I was after) as well as information on his website. I was also very happy with the holistic ideals behind his practice. He was the third doctor I had a consult with.I had a virtual consultation due to COVID, and after speaking with him for only a bit I knew that he was the one! What impressed me was his confidence, candor, & modern approach to procedures, as well as giving me unique & detailed insight to the procedure like none of the other doctors I spoke with prior had shared. Having your breasts done is very nervewracking and is a huge deal as a woman. Dr. Bensimon was very confident in assuring me that he knew what would look best on my body and frame and that was exactly what I was looking for.Other doctors I believe could have delivered great results, however his methods resulted in probably the least discomfort possible, which was worth paying a higher price for in my opinion. I didn't need to use even one narcotic I was prescribed, and so many of the things I was nervous to experience (pain, swelling, inability to move etc) I barely struggled with. I have a relatively stationary job, and I felt like I could have gone back to work (easing in) at day 5!It was so easy having the surgery center in the same location, and it was so relaxing and private. I was the only patient that day and it was very reassuring that all the staff's attention was focused on me!My "after" photo is only a week after, and as he said - it can take up to a year for the implants to settle in, so keep that in mind. However I must note - I off handedly told him that when trying to decide how big I wanted my breasts to be I stuffed my bra (LOL) and the circumference measured at 36 inches. After surgery I thought I'd measure to see what my new measurement was - it was 36.5 inches! Needless to say, he was spot on. The office is beautiful, the staff is all incredible and so happy to help with any questions, etc. I never once felt as if they were pushy, condescending, indifferent to me - either things I experienced elsewhere or was afraid of experiencing. I even inquired only a couple of weeks out about "adding on" neck liposuction and I was so happy he was able to do this for me! Sadly I don't have a before & after for that, but I can definitely see a wonderful improvement from this as well.Overall, my experience has been SO easygoing in comparison to others' experiences that I've heard and I would ABSOLUTELY go back for any other procedures I'd consider having in the future!

At 1-month post op, I got married! - Since I was a young girl, I had always wanted a rhinoplasty. It wasn’t until earlier this year that I became serious about pursuing one. Safe to say, I spent several months doing extensive research on surgeons in the Oregon/Washington area and Dr. Bensimon stuck out by far. Upon meeting for a consultation, Dr. Bensimon was extremely kind and honest. He listed the concerns I had regarding my nose shape and suggested other things that he could improve on while in surgery. We also discussed improving some congestion and breathing issues I had been having. Dr. Bensimon explained the nasal structures thoroughly and took the time to draw anatomical sketches to enhance his explanation. Following the consult, I was able to discuss the full cost of the procedure and received help with applying for a CareCredit loan. Once approved, pre-op and surgical dates were scheduled. At my pre-op, we reviewed the plan for my rhinoplasty and the nurse provided me with thorough pre/post-operative instructions. Dr. Bensimon considers holistic care that will aid with quicker healing after surgery which included supplements and dietary suggestions. Unfortunately, my surgery had to be rescheduled due to COVID, but the lovely staff was as helpful as they could be. On the day of surgery, I was put under (for the first time in my life!) using IV anesthetic and woke up with a new nose! I felt extremely prepared for my post op healing with the medications, supplements, and instructions provided to me by the clinic. My minimal pain was most likely attributed to the gentle techniques, avoiding packing the nose, and great care of the clinic! After 1 week, my external splint and stitches were removed. I was extremely swollen at this time and still had bruising/swelling of my face. By week 2, there was a marked decrease in swelling compared to cast removal day.At 1-month post op, I got married! My nose was still swollen but significantly less so and much less tender. 80% of my eye bruising/swelling was gone as well. At 6 weeks post op, I was in love with my nose! While I know I still have much more healing to do, I am extremely happy with my results and can’t wait to see them progress. I have included photos below and hopefully, this helps someone feel confident to book their rhinoplasty with Dr. Bensimon! More

I have had a sense of dysmorphia my entire life with my love-handles. Even at my skinniest I have bumps sticking out of both sides of my lower backside. Along with my friend, we both decided to take the next step and look into liposuction. I did a ton of local research and narrowed down to doctor Bensimon and did a consult. I fell in love with the kindness, the caring and willingness from all the staff and doctor Bensimon himself. There was tons of pre and post care thorough instruction and care. The day of my appointment was easy and smooth. Recovery felt quick, I was only out of work for two days. Now, 8 months post procedure, My body is back to normal, My body has changed and is newly accentuated; my butt look bigger, my wait looks smaller and I feel like my absolute self in my body. Doctor Bensimon gave me more than what I anticipated and I couldnt be more happy. It's a pricelesss feeling. More

I had heard and seen from two friends about their experience with the BensipeelThey both are very happy with their results and their skin looked great, so I went for a Consult, thought long and hard about spending so much money and then went for it. Yes it's a process, and has some downtime AND it is so worth it. Truly my skin has been rejuvenated. Even an Esthetician friend couldn’t believe my great results. I had some creepy skin, I am 66 years old, and that dull grey skin of aging. The Bensipeel not only totally rejuvenated my skin but also lifted my eyelids a bit, and took care of a bunch of undereye puffiness. I’ve always gone for a natural elegant look, and Dr. Bensimon really understands the idea of doing what one can with what one has, The idea is to enhance, beautify. i found him and his office great to work with, caring, attentive, honest and kind with the utmost attention to results. I’m super happy with the long term results and even 6 months later my skin is still getting better. So glad I did it and did it with Dr. Bensimon. More

Highest Recommendation - For ten years, I had dead-end consultations in NY and Miami to try and get help fixing some body issues from being overweight as a child and from a major surgery I had years ago. I had given up thinking I was ever going to get help. After I moved to Portland, someone gave me Dr. Bensimon's name as the "surgeon's surgeon." I was so encouraged by the initial consultation - he was kind, clear, patient and listened to what my hopes were before recommending I try something I hadn't considered before - something simpler, more affordable and with little risk. I trusted him, and he was right. I had two more procedures over a year. It was life changing. I am still stunned at the results. I cannot recommend Dr. Bensimon and his staff enough. They are just the best at what they do. More

I am a 28 year old female who has lost 130 plus pounds over the course of 2 years. My breasts have always been fairly droopy but after loosing a substantial amount of weight I decided that having the same boobs as my grandmother was not something I could live with. I researched plastic surgeons all of the US, even as far as Miami. I decided to check out Dr. Bensimon based on reviews and pictures I saw of other breast lifts. When I went into the office I immediately felt at ease. His staff was and has continually been very friendly and informative throughout the entire process. After discussing my intended outcome of surgery with Dr. Bensimon I felt very confident making the decision to move forward with scheduling my surgery. Before my Surgery I was given proper and easy to understand instruction of what to expect and how to handle the pre-procedure process. ?The day of surgery I was warmly welcomed into the OR, all staff was knowledgeable and let me know exactly what was to be expected. Dr. Bensimon took so much time and effort into constructing my breasts I got out of surgery and was handed a mirror and I honesty couldn’t have been happier. The post procedure process was very painless and I could have easily gone back to work after a few days. Yes, I was sore, and I had a lot of bruising, but I did not have to take the pain medicine I had been given. My incisions have healed very quickly and without any complications. Long story short, the process from pre to post was one of the easiest surgeries I have ever had. I also look at my breasts daily to make sure they are real and it’s not a dream :) I have never been happier with my body. Dr. Bensimon is worth a shot if you are considering a breast lift. More

I have been getting treatments at Dr. Bensimon's office for years, fillers, botox, microderm abrasion and skin tightening treatments for my face. I cannot speak highly enough about how amazing my experience has been each and every time. My skin looks amazing, I look younger and feel great! My results are very natural (which was very important to me). Andrea, Dr. Bensimon, Christopher and everyone in the office are genuine and I can tell they really care about me and their patients and making sure that all my concerns are addressed at each and every appointment. My daughter also had body contouring with Dr. Bensimon and she is ecstatic about her results as well!! If you are looking for somewhere to get fillers, facial treatment and body contouring this is the number one place ! Thank you to everyone at the Benismon center.

I am 59 yrs old, 5’1” gal who 10 years ago weighed in at 200+ pounds. I am far more fit and strong now than I’ve ever been but my body shape has suffered. I’ve carried a large lower abdominal roll since puberty and with weight loss (down and held at 165#) and age, it began to drop. Add in post-menopausal spare tire and you have a good idea of my profile. In my opinion, even if I lost another 20 pounds I would still have the double rolls hanging off my front - they would be smaller but still there. I decided that it was time to be rid of this baggage and give myself a gift of a Tummy Tuck. I researched numerous profiles on different platforms and consulted with 4 different surgeons. Dr. Bensimon was a standout from the beginning. He carefully listened to what I wanted to have done and took his time to fully explain his approach to the procedure. Since he was my fourth consult I immediately saw how he was different. He doesn’t use drains - his method causes them to not be needed. He has a specific technique to create a natural looking navel, and his way of addressing and correcting separation of abdominal muscles made sense to me. His specialized liposuction technique added to what I call a “kinder, gentler” experience. One of the biggest stand-out points is the fact that I was able to control my post surgery discomfort almost exclusively with ibuprofen. Let me make that point again - today I am 14 days post procedure and have needed minimal pain meds other than ibuprofen. This is a big deal! Aside from the addictive nature of opioids (which I am not dismissing) they cause constipation which no one wants to experience on a good day let alone after surgery. From my consult through pre-procedure appointment, surgery, and two follow-up visits - I have always felt safe and well cared for. All of the staff have been friendly and professional. I have a ways to go yet with healing and recovery. That noted, I can look at my body for the first time in many years and am happy with what I see. In summary, I’m very pleased to have chosen Dr Bensimon and recommend him to anyone considering this procedure. More

After having broken my nose several years ago I decided to have a corrective rhinoplasty to fix the deformity and to soften the contour. Dr. Bensimon was my first consult following a minor rhinoplasty offered by insurance through an ENT after the accident (ENTs are NOT plastic surgeons and I should have insisted to have this done right the first time by someone qualified) which essentially was a waste of my time. The medical office was stunning and comfortable with staff that were friendly and attentive. I met with Dr. B and was given the opportunity to describe what I was aiming for with surgery, and I was met with a response from Dr. B that convinced me on the spot that he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery. Dr. B's credentials were obviously what initially led me to book a consultation with him along with some reviews I had read. Something I did not expect and what really impressed me was his artistic vision. He told me what he saw from the inside out and how doing what he planned would shape, soften, and balance my existing features perfectly; in short Dr. B read my mind. His detailed plan of what he envisioned for my nose would not only achieve my goal of correcting the deformity, but would give me the nose I never knew I always wanted. Having a medical background I was intent on discussing his chosen techniques for the surgery, and this information was given without any prodding and with detail that was above and beyond what I was expecting. His enthusiasm and pride in rhinoplasty specifically also gave me the confidence that he is a physician that absolutely loves his work and will settle for nothing less than his best. The results were just as amazing as the plan he had laid out on day one. I had also elected to have a mammoplasty at the same time as the rhinoplasty which went equally well, with perhaps a little less thrilling consult (I wanted larger breasts...I was not expecting to be wowed here). Dr. B was able to perform the mammoplasty transaxially which is a more difficult/challenging surgical option but would achieve more discrete scar placement. Not only was Dr. B able to accomplish amazing things for me but he was readily available to answer any questions and concerns in aftercare/recovery. If I had any sort of criticism for my personal experience with Dr. B it would be that I wish he had not been dismissive of my partner during the consult. I completely understand the focus being on me as the patient undergoing the procedure, but my partner was a little hurt that his assistance in asking questions and getting information we had wondered about together was perhaps taken as an annoyance rather than a help by Dr. B. I could not recommend Dr. B more highly to anyone interested in cosmetic surgery, especially rhinoplasty. He has both the skill and the vision to accomplish beautiful results, and I have no doubt you will be equally pleased if your expectations are realistic. His work is worth every penny. More

In the past two years, I have had two surgeries with Dr. Bensimon Rhinoplasty and Ear Surgeries. I swear to God, I am 100% satisfied with the results. I could not ask for more. I don't have enough words to express my thanks and gratitude to Dr. Bensimon. My Rhinoplasty which I did in 2016 needed a simple revision surgery, he did it for me without any extra charges and he was so welcoming to do the revision and spend all of the time for a very simple thing to make his patient satisfied. In addition to his super skills as a plastic surgeon, he is the nicest, the friendliest, and the most professional doctor. He does his job like he entertains helping his patients. His staff are so nice and so caring. My experience in the past two years has been amazing. More

Breast Reduction and a vertical lift. 36DDD, 35 y/o, 5'6.5", 145lbs. Mother of two. Breastfed x1 - I think as swelling and bruising is shifting, along with the healing process, I am starting to feel new things. Sharp twinges and prickly sensations. Swelling and bruising along my sides and under my breasts is painful with just my cotton sports bra on. I'm tired and weak. I get winded easily. I'm not much of a resting person so I'm probably doing too much. Tomorrow is my first Post-Op appointment. I am excited to have a regular shower. So glad I have another week to recover before work. There is no way I could do 12 hour shifts on my feet all day. Trying to keep things in perspective emotionally. Ready to feel normal again! More

Dr. Bensimon spent time with me during the consult and before the surgery and in my follow up exam (I'm still less than 2 weeks post procedure) and took whatever time I wanted to answer my questions. He never glossed over any risks and got as technical as I wanted (and I like to get technical). He clearly loves what he does, and is ridiculously good at it. His staff is also top notch. It's a wellness practice, so there is emphasis on not just pills and procedures, but on lifestyle approaches to improved healing. Just seriously awesome. More

Dr. Bensimon performed a full-face Bensipeel (aka a miracle) on my 58-year-old face 6 weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier. I have seen big improvements so far in my skin texture and tautness, and I am expecting more to come. I received great pre/post-op education and care, all of my concerns were addressed, and I still can't get over how pain free the post-op course has been. More

Dr. Bensimon and his staff were an answer to prayer. I've loathed my saddlebags for as long as I can remember. I took the plunge and got liposuction on my entire thighs and couldn't believe what breeze it was! Dr Bensimon absolutely knows what he is doing and it showed by the way he effortlessly conducted my appointments. I am healing well and am telling everyone how I got lipo and it is completely doable!

I have been with Andrea Stapleton at THE BENSIMON CENTER for over a decade. She (and Dr. Bensimon) have helped my skin become more youthful as I age! That is a fact. NO ONE believes my age and I ALWAYS get complements about my skin. That is a direct result of what Andrea has meticulously done over the years.They are THE BEST! They provide the most comfortable services I have ever experienced. Not only do I GLOW- because of the amazing work they do on my skin- I also feel GOOD while I'm there. Andrea is an artistic genius. She CARES about people individually. She takes her TIME. She has incredible instincts as well as a wealth of the most up to date, relevant medical information there is. Their office is warm, peaceful, bright, relaxing and comfortable. They now have PRO-NOX which is a low dose nitrous oxide system that takes away any anxiety and discomfort that can come with the procedures. I have always loved going to see her but the PRO-NOX is a total game changer! I am happy to share any of my experiences with anyone who wants more information. If you are looking for a simple, lunch time peel, fillers and botox, or surgical procedure, Dr. Richard Bensimon and Andrea Stapleton at THE BENSIMON CENTER are my absolute recommendation. Thank you!

After having weight loss surgery two years ago I got to a point where I had that skin/ fat roll left on my lower abdomen that just would not go away. So I finally decided to get my breast lift and tummy tuck done. And it has been quite amazing experience so far even though I'm still healing. My surgery was done under deep sedation but no general anesthesia which was very nice as I got to go home the same day after my surgery. Dr Bensimon used local anesthetic on my stomach after the surgery so I was quite comfortable for two days after the surgery. I took only one Vicodin tablet on the third night before going to bed and even that was more to help me relax than for pain. I usually sleep on my stomach so it was weird sleeping in that semi sitting position. I have managed all my pain with just ibuprofen and tylenol, no narcotics. I had my first follow up appointment 6 days post op and was given okay to walk normally and advance activity as tolerated. I went back to work 9 days after the surgery.I have been very pleasantly surprised by the quick recovery and minimal amount of pain considering how involved the surgery is. The local anesthetic after the surgery was awesome because it made me so comfortable. More

From beginning to end the whole experience was painless. Even after the surgery i surprisingly had ZERO PAIN. I was prescribed pain pills but didn't end up using them..at all! Before surgery The Bensimon Center staff get you a great deal on organic juices and broth from The Portland Juice Company. They deliver so you can just put in your order over the phone/ online, relax and allow the healing process to take full reign. That's what you eat/ drink to get your body prepared to heal quickly. They give you mediation techniques to prepare for the surgery a well as for after to calm your nerves and to be at a calm state of mind. The doctor periodically calls you to check up and make sure everything is going well once you get home. I've had previous surgeries i.e. getting my teeth surgically extracted, that was WAY MORE PAINFUL than this. The only thing that bothered me was having to mouth breath all the time so you are prescribed sleeping pills. I believe without the sleeping pills would have NEVER had a speedy recovery like i did. Fair warning... it is painful to get your cast taken off and your nose swells like you got punched in the face, but the results I got are worth 5 minutes of that discomfort. I have a very feminine nose now and i couldn't be happier More

43 yrs old, 5'9, 80lb weight loss,4 Kids (LARGE births) with previous hernia mesh and hysterectomy. TT Lipo muscle repair - I am two days post op as I reflect and even in the normal pain and medicated stupor associated with such a procedure, I am very clear that Dr. Bensimon is the only surgeon I will go to from here on out. His intelligence and passion for his work strikes you immediately. I nearly fell in love with his Einstein-esque nature (looks like him too!); that is to say he makes you feel cared for, he is incredibly knowledgeable, scientific yet warm, kind and patient. He was extremely thorough and empathetic to my insecurities and concerns. I never felt as if he didn't understand my end of it. I am honestly in awe of the entire office, including the nurses (Colleen & Luda ty!), Andrea and even the wonderful anesthesiologist. They are all loving, careful and most importantly informative. I'm so very excited to see the improved me soon. This man has already changed my life to be quite honest. If you want the best surgeon, go see Dr. Bensimon. More

Not sure who was staring back at me in the mirror but I decided I needed to do something about all my sun damage and aging issues (what happened?) It was like my face went South these last 2 years. I was too chicken to do a facelift as far as not wanting to look like someone else and not wanting something so invasive so I researched chemical peels and was impressed with the results of the Bensipeel from looking at the before and afters on their website. I was also impressed with the origin and ongoing improvements with the process. I am so ecstatic with my results! I had no pain, some discomfort with the bismuth mask but my mask lasted about 7 days. It sloughs off as your skin heals. I am so happy I decided to go this route. The only downside to this is now my neck doesn't match my younger looking face so I guess I'll have to ask Dr. Bensimon what he can do for that! I highly recommend this procedure.Updated on 21 Jun 2017:Responding to request for a newer picture...6 weeksUpdated on 30 Aug 2017:Just posting a 4 month picture. Very pleased with my results. I do notice the area under my eyes appearing a little (look how bad they were to start with so I'm not that surprised!) and my doctor said I could touch up any areas (part of the cost) if I felt like I needed to. I will see how I feel this winter as I won't be able to much before that anyway if I decide to.Updated on 29 Dec 2017:It's been 8 months since my procedure.Updated on 3 Feb 2018:Was asked to try and get a moreSimilar pose to original photo.

I am a 54 year old female who had lived with a botched lipsuction result for 7 years before seeking out a way to fix my deformed arms (and the arms are not the only botched part of my body). I had a Portland Clinic who advertises ALOT on TV, convince me that doing thousands of dollars worth of lasers and ultrasound would fix the deformity. It didn't. 2 more years went by before I had the courage to try again. I consulted with several plastic surgeons and finally found Dr. Bensimon. I was scared, emotional, skeptical and tired of hiding my arms. The moment I met with Dr. Bensimon I felt at ease. He explained his fat transfer procedure and how it was different than others. He talked to me on his personal cell phone, after office hours, the night before the procedure and talked me off the ledge. He cared. He felt confident that 1 session would fix my issues. It has been a little over a year, and I am pleased with my results, but I still cannot show my arms. I am gathering up the courage to call his office for a follow up procedure. I trust that he can fill in the hollows and dips that remain. But I am scared and $7500 is not an option for me again, and so another year/summer will go by that I hide my arms. I highly recommend Dr. Bensimon and his staff. I would love to post my results, but at this time, they are not what I had hoped for and I hope one day to have a complete satisfactory result. More

After 3 yrs of thinking and researching bbl i decided to do it i went to a couple of diff doctors and they all said i wasn't a candidate for a bbl because of my small frame and having a liposuction procedure in the past just made things more difficult. I workout a lot I have a fit figure and all i wanted its a more round even buttocks with natural results. Dr. Bensimon understood exactly what looking for and i felt real comfortable with him the whole experience was very relaxing opposite from my previous experience when i got my first lipo. Some of the doctors said it was painful and a bit uncomfortable but Dr Bensimon told me i was going to be very relaxed and i wasn't going to remember much of the surgery which i was and i dont remember any pain im 2 weeks out loving my body already and feeling great about the whole experience! The only cons is not being able to sit down or lay on your back for 4 wks 1st week its the toughest but at week 2 my body its getting used to it and i dont mind being on my feet this much anymore.

Jowls run in my family and almost overnight there they were. I saw Dr. Bensimon for several consultations and he has a very warm manner which is important to me, but also answered all of my questions.

I had minimal swelling. I probably would have been able to go back to work after one week but I have very fair skin and had some bruising. I wasn't comfortable with wearing so much cover up makeup so I waited for two weeks to pass. I went back to work and no one even noticed. Most of the swelling had gone down and I just had minimal bruising that I could cover up with light makeup. I am now at the 8 week mark and feel like I look so much younger. I'm so happy the jowls are gone. I feel like I look like I did when I was younger but it looks so natural. More

I had a full face Croton Oil Peel done by Dr. Richard Bensimon at the Bensimon Center in Portland, Oregon on 12/9/15. To begin, I’d like to say that I am very glad I was able to have had a face-to-face conversation with a Bensimon Center patient who had actually had just been through the BensiPeel (croton oil deep peel) and could assure me it was true that it was NOT painful before I scheduled my peel. And believe me, I am a big baby when it comes to pain – it was my biggest concern and far outweighed any worries about length of time for healing and recovery from ensuing redness. I am also very grateful that I live close to the Portland Metro area and have easy access to this doctor. He is a talented surgeon and a renowned expert and educator in the world of facial peels, is passionate about the stellar results he creates and he has done hundreds of deep peels over the years.I felt nothing during the peel (oral sedation), returned home in a very relaxed state the same morning and went right to sleep for several hours. I woke up in time have some soup and to go back to bed, which, after taking a pain pill to insure I didn’t wake up uncomfortable, I did. The first 2 days I was in a tape mask that seemed to help keep the swelling down. Dr. Bensimon removed the mask at the end of the 2 days and my face was coated in an iodine powder that stayed for another 5 days. I am so relieved this is the method the doctor used for the initial recovery – I would have gone nuts having to wash my face and reapply a thick coat of ointment several times a day like some on this site have described. As well as not being nearly as messy, I feel like not putting my hands on my face time and again every day kept me from feeling the urge to pick at my face or to try and help the pieces of peeled skin off before their time. Discomfort I had during the healing process was tightness and heat that, while not painful, was enough for me to use both the pain medication and the sleeping pills prescribed. The woman I mentioned above that had already been though the peel process with Dr. Bensimon the month before I spoke with her told me she didn’t use any of the medications available other than the Valtrex that everyone is given to help insure there are no virus outbreaks during the healing process. When I quizzed her as to why, she shared that the combination of her living alone and not having anyone around to oversee her after the first 48 hours she was home and her not being in what she considered pain made her feel that there was no need to take anything other than Advil. I however, had my husband as a live-in babysitter and chose to just not feel any discomfort.After the powder mask was removed, I was able to start using heavy duty moisturizer and let my skin finish its rebirth. At the two week mark, I had a consult with the nurse and the esthetician at the Bensimon Center and was shown how to use a post procedure foundation makeup to cover the redness on my face and was cleared by Dr. Bensimon to go back to my normal social and work routines. I am thrilled with the results of my peel. I am of Irish descent, have a very fair complexion, was exposed to way too much sun in my younger years and my facial skin was far more wrinkled than a typical 56 year old non-smoker, especially around my mouth and sides of my face. This is a medical procedure, not a beauty treatment and a person needs to approach the two-week commitment as such. However, I don’t think there is any other way to get such profound results and 14 days of sticking close to home and the minimal discomfort I had while healing were completely worth it to me.Updated on 12 Feb 2016:Updated on 12 Feb 2016:Updated on 12 Feb 2016:Updated on 23 Feb 2016:Updated on 5 May 2016: More

From the moment I met Dr Bensimon I knew I wanted him to do my procedure, he was honest with me and didn't promise anything he couldn't deliver. He gave me realistic expectations and made me feel very safe in his hands. Julianna, oh Julianna, she is an angel. I could write a book on what a gentle should she is. She Helped me with procedure costs, explain to me every detail, answered all of my many questions and I can honestly say she truly cares about your wellbeing. She is such a breath of fresh air. The rest of the staff is amazing as well, Luda the nurse who was in charge of me the day of my procedure was so sweet as well. Again, they, as a team exceeded my expectations. More

Fitness Fanatic Finally Fixed! - Portland, OR - Dr. Bensimon has a gentle nature that makes you feel confident sharing this type of personal procedure with him. He is very current on his understanding of the latest treatment options and is highly concerned with successful outcomes for his clients. I was impressed with him from our first meeting and knew I would be in not just "good hands", but the BEST! So glad I found him. More

18 Year Old, Rhinoplasty for Appearance Purposes. Portland, OR - He's amazing. And I am currently 6 months post op and he noticed something he wasn't totally happy with and is fixing it for me with no charge. He's such a perfectionist and I think that's such a good thing for a surgeon More

Croton Oil Peel - 56 Year Old Woman, Portland Oregon - Dr. Bensimon made sure I was well informed about what to expect, showed me several patient photos of all the phases of healing I would experience and was very clear that although I would not be in pain during or after the peel, there would be a healing process that could be somewhat uncomfortable and it would take a full two weeks for my new skin to be ready to accept makeup/sunscreen and for me to be able to venture back out into the world. I enjoyed his professionalism, personality and pleasant manner very much and felt very confident in his abilities as a physician and a plastic surgeon. More

I workout a lot I have a fit figure and all i wanted its a more round even buttocks with natural results. Dr. Bensimon understood exactly what... More

In May 2014, I relocated to Portland. I was worried that I would not be able to find a medspa that was as knowledgeable and friendly as the one I had been going to for the last four years. With a google search, I found the Bensimon Center. I read through the reviews and decided to make an appointment. Upon arriving to the office, I was instantly impressed with the friendliness of the team. My appointment was with Jessica. Her approach to consulting paired with her experience and expertise completely put me at ease. We talked about the goals I have with my complexion and she offered fantastic advice. While her technique was different from my former aesthetician, she was extremely patient with me and my many questions by explaining why and how she was doing things. I have seen Jessica for a handful of services, most recently a Melange Mini Peel. It had been recommended to me before for the melasma and sun damage by my last office. After hearing Jessica explain what results I would get from the peel and how the peel works, it was a no-brainer. She was spot on with everything she said to expect and I beyond happy with the results...and the continued improvement in my skin tone and texture with the support of the post-care treatment cream. If you are looking for radiant, glowing skin without the downtime, you definitely need to book for a sensitive skin peel. I had compliments on my skin for weeks after that peel!Jessica has also been great in recommending skin care products from the SkinCeuticals line the office sells. I have been using Perricone MD products for years. When I mention to her what frustrates me about my skin, she suggests a targeted treatment product. For example, I mentioned that I was unhappy with the flare up along my jawline. She recommended Blemish + Age Defense. After one application, 90% of the breakout was GONE! From injectables to peels to skincare, I HIGHLY recommend Jessica at the Bensimon Center. More

I was 67 and had very saggy skin on my neck and jawline. I had lost 75 lbs and my neck was not going to shrink back to where it had been when I was younger. Dr. Bensimon was very professional and listened well to my concerns. I had 4 areas that I was concerned about, including my eyes, and he did exactly what I wanted. I selected Dr. Bensimon after seeing 3 other cosmetic surgeons. Even a local surgeon suggested that he was the best in Portland. I am thrilled with the results and most people don't look at me and think that I had surgery. I look like I did 25 years ago, almost! More

In going to Dr. Bensimon I was quite nervous at first, but put to ease instantly with his team: Andrea, Jessica, Luda, Mayra, and Rachel I couldn't have been in better hands. This after having Gastric Bypass surgery already done and the last of the finishing stages and I must say I am so excited that I had everything done as I feel like a new man. I have lost over 250 lbs and feel amazing!!! I thank Dr. Bensimon and would recommend this Center to anyone willing to take the chance at saving there life. Thank you to the entire staff for everything and amazing results if you believe!!!The expertise, professionalism, and care your given from the time you enter to the time you leave is so true and 1st class. A true place of work ethics and also a place that cares for you More

I was referred to Dr.Bensimon Center by another fine plastic surgeon who felt he would be able to meet my needs. I am so happy that I pursued the Dr. Bensimon Center referral. From my initial conversation with Rachel who scheduled my first consultation to meeting and talking with Luda, Jessica and Dr. Bensimon I was truly impressed with their expertise, professionalism and concern for my needs. I am a male in my 50’s and decided to have a deep plane facelift after advice from Dr. Bensimon. Wow, I cannot believe the transformation! Dr. Bensimon is truly a gifted and skilled surgeon. His techniques and surgical methods are by far the most advanced that produce remarkable results. After just 1 month of post op surgery I decided to also have Blepharoplasty and a partial BensiPeel preformed by Dr. Bensimon. Once again everyone and everything exceeded my expectations. This goes without saying I look and feel 20 years younger and am ecstatic about my new look. During my 3 months of working with Dr. Bensimon and his other staff members including Andrea and Mayra I have grown to enjoy their knowledge and positive influence which has truly been a blessing. You will not find a better doctor or staff who can provide the highest level of expertise and results that the Dr. Bensimon Center has provided to me. More

67 Years Old and Not Happy with my Mirror Image! - Portland, OR - Dr. Bensimon is always very pleasant and listened to me and my husband when we said that we did not want the extreme facelift look - like you are scared. He looked at several older photos of me to see how my face looked 40 and 20 years ago. He made me look younger but not different from my natural appearance. More
