Dr. Been provides comprehensive treatment of both cosmetic and functional/reconstructive aspects of the face. He is double board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat surgery); however, his focus is solely upon facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is an author of multiple book chapters and publications on topics including rhinoplasty (nasal surgery), rhytidectomy (facelift surgery), chemical peels and cosmetic lasers. He has also been active in international health care, participating in mission work in Belize for treatment of skin cancer, cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. As a result of his training and experience, he is pleased to offer both cosmetic and reconstructive services.
