During rhinoplasty the shape, form and/or function of the nose is improved. The aim is to bring the nose in harmony with the other structures of the face, where also skin type, ethnic background and age play an important role. Often a nose surgery to achieve more balance is a nose reduction. During the consultation […]

Chin augmentation

The chin should be in balance with the rest of the face. Most important, the chin should align with the nose and should fit your own jaw line. With a chin correction we can change the size and shape of the chin. So we can make a jaw line more defined with an augmented chin, […]

Forehead Lift (Browplasty)

arrow

Aging can sag the skin of the forehead and the eyebrows may drop below the orbital rim. This may cause headaches, but also form wrinkles such as frown lines and forehead wrinkles, thereby accounting for a tired, angry expression. An endoscopic forehead lift without major scars makes a big difference in one’s expression of the […]

Adult Cleft

arrow

Children born with a cleft lip, jaw and cleft palate are to be escorted and treated in a children’s hospital by a cleft palate team until they are 18. Often adjustments are still needed to nose, lip, jaw and teeth after their 18th birthday, but there was never a specialized cleft palate team for adults. […]

Doctors without Borders

Preparing for a trip with Doctors without Borders to Nigeria beginning of February. With a highly skilled team we will be performing complex facial reconstructive surgery in victims of Noma disease.

Noma is an acute infection affecting the face. The victims are young children, exposed to extreme poverty and chronic malnutrition. Part of my New Years resolution is to give more to people in need.

Approach and philosophy for rhinoplasty

In rhinoplasty there are some important aspects in my approach and philosophy:

  1. A natural result after rhinoplasty is more beautiful than a nose clearly operated on. After surgery there must be a better fit of the nose to the face. Therefore, the surgeon must take into account ethnicity and cultural background in supervising and treating clients.
  1. The perfect nose does not exist. One of the beauties of the face is the diversity. With such variaties it would be wrong to aim for the same nose for each client.
  1. Do no harm. A rhinoplasty is an elective procedure. Therefore it…

Rhinoplasty with filler

A nose with small bumps, with somewhat of a hump on the bridge or an abnormal nose tip. Too small for extensive surgery but very distracting!

We can already make quite some difference in about 15 minutes with a non-surgical treatment using fillers. No anaesthesia, no down-time and lower costs. Often a good solution for corrections needed after rhinoplasty.

Perhaps not for everyone, but surely for smaller irregularities. Anyone?

In April 2016 I have had rhinoplasty done by Dr. Stubenitsky. Since I was doubting my decision quite a lot I had two consults and asked for a second opinion by another surgeon. I eventually chose for Dr. Stubenitsky because of his expertise, his calm and clear explanation and his clear passion for the nose (everyone their own passion). The staff of the Velthuis clinique was without any exception incredibly nice and the surgery wasn’t that bad at all. I quit my painkillers earlier and went to work after a week and a half. Many friends don’t even notice the change, and that is exactly what I wanted. The result is very natural and I am very happy with it.

Since I can remember I have been conscious of my nose. Not sure at what point the deviation happened but do remember some incidents with baskets balls slamming my nose and the intense pain thereafter possibly leading to the bump. Anyway as life went on got the confidence in myself to live with it but after coming back every few years to the idea I eventually decided to give it a serious thought. Did the research and found the doctor in Netherlands when I was visiting. Was in one the top clinics, visited him, and he made me feel he was the right guy. I had previously once visited two doctors, the first who used turkey something to describe the hang of the nose (made me feel insecure), another who said it would all be fine etc this guy didn’t make me feel insecure and told me what we would correct, showed me on ipad how it would look and said we should go for a natural looking change. Day of surgery and follow-up all went well and really the biggest fear I had was post op pain which basically there wasn’t any much at all. The nose was stuffed with cotton buds for a few days and that made sleeping difficult but nose recovered fast. didn’t bruise much at all and once the things were taken off… I was ready to go normal. I’m glad I got it done. It looks perfect from side. I would like the tip to be sharper and may get a revision done on the tip only. So if you have been thinking about it – suggest make sure the clinic is reputable and the doctor has a good history. One thing about EU is that doctors don’t seem to advertise themselves and their work as much as in US so while I do prefer the US style marketing the job was done well and no one noticed per se the rhinoplasty in that it wasn’t a drastic new nose or face but perfecter one. Dr. Bart showed me on his ipad his previous patients (and a lot of em) plus also did a stimulation on some software in his ipad about what my final outcome will be like – this REALLY helped in deciding how to go. Also I described the issues I felt and he explained how he can fix it and gave further recommendations such as reduction of nostrils or leaving the bump for masculine look etc. The guy knows what he is doing and did a fantastic job with which I’m super glad. Also about the marketing aspect, the main diff between US vs NL I suppose, that US doctors put all their patient photos on site while I couldn’t find many doctors who put up their work on their site, I’m not sure why that is but I guess culturally europeans are less flamboyant than Americans… just a guess 🙂

Doctor Stubenitsky is a real gentleman and professional. Staff are pleasant. Everything good! He goes for a natural look so what he showed me how it will the nose is. I will get a revision done on the tip because I’d like it smaller sharper. He is happy to take care of it. After care follow up could be more detailed but was ok anyway.

Dear Dr. Stubenitsky, I went to the nurse yesterday to have my splint and stitches removed, and when I looked into mirror I was speechless. I think it looks incredibly beautiful, I am so happy, it exceeded all my expectations. I want to thank you so much for everything, I have a hard time explaining how happy I am. I would recommend the Velthuis clinique and especially you to everyone! And of course also the sweet and caring nurses, I am very satisfied. On Wednesday I have an appointment for a checkup with you, than I can thank you in person.

On the 28th of November 2015 I have had rhinoplasty done by dr. Stubenitsky. During the intake I immediately felt comfortable with doctor Stubenitsky. He listened really good to all my wishes but was also clear about the possibilities I had. I would definitely recommend dr. Stubenitsky. He is a spontaneous man who is at the same time very professional and passionate about his profession. The result is above my expectations, I am very pleased with it.

The time and attention I got during my orientation meeting and intake before the surgery made sure I was calm and went into the surgery with a positive attitude. The result is above any of my expectations and looks very natural.
