Reviews For Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen

My name is Kyla _______ although when you met me nearly 10 years ago my name was Kyla _______. I emailed you asking if there was anything you could do to help my appearance, I was born with a Cleft Lip and had only had one surgery to repair it, which was when I was a month old.

To my surprise you emailed me back and offered to do my surgery at no charge! I came down from southern Oregon to have the surgery and during the consultation you even offered a chin implant!

I have written this email a couple times through the years and never had the right words to express my sincerest thanks to you and your staff. I will probably never have the ability to communicate to you how much you have changed me, from the outside, in.

Growing up with such an obvious defect was hard. It’s already hard to grow up, but I suffered inside with what was on the outside. My peers rarely let me forget my scar on my lip and my crocked nostrils. My confidence was non-existent. When I emailed you I was desperate for change and perfection.

You evened out my upper lip, improved the appearance of my nose greatly and the chin implant changed my whole face shape and profile! Many people I have met since the surgery don't even notice my scar at first and it’s not the...

Much Better Than I Ever Expected - Beverly Hills, CA

Rarely does an experience exceed my expectations but a brow lift by Dr. Ellenbogen did. He was extremely generous with his time, answered all my questions. I must admit, and he gave me the confidence to proceed with a brow lift. One of my eyebrows was drooping. Although he told me he could not promise they would be even they are. I am 100% happy with the results. I met with a number of this plastic surgeons prior to Dr. Ellenbogen and it was not only his impeccable credentials but his concern that this be the right thing for me that helped me commit to the surgery. I am an esthetician and I very careful about the referrals I give to my clients. Dr. Ellenbogen is now the only plastic surgeon I refer.

Dr Ellenbogen - Los Angeles, CA

I really don't understand why anyone would post anything negative about Dr. ELlenbogen. Perhaps is due to unrealistic expectations?? What ever the case may be my experience with Dr. Ellenbogen far exceeded my expectations. I say this because not only of his expertise in cosmetic surgery, but due to the fact that he is kind, caring, and compassionate. Unfortunately I have had two breast augmentations from a top surgeon. (Not to name anyone there is no reason too) after my second surgery I had complications due to fluid build up which was excruciating. Unable to take the pain and the large growing blister I called the DR. Only to be yelled at because it was the end of the day and now they had to stay late.. Well pardon me. Dr. Ellenbogen on the other hand took my call over the weekend after surgery, and was quick to fit me in if I had any questions or concerns. I know there are many surgeons to choose from and it's best to choose the one that works for your personal needs. I chose Dr . Ellenbogen because he has been a surgeon over 30 years, he has taught top plastic surgeons his trade, has written many articles about cosmetics surgery, and has the experience to address different situations. Thank you Dr Ellenbogen it's been an honor having you as my surgeon.

My Rhinoplasty Experience with Doctor Ellenbogen - Los Angeles, CA

1) I found Dr. Ellenbogen on Internet 2) I had 3 consultations with him prior surgery, those consultations were worth a lot. 3) Those consultations made me to choose Dr.Ellenbogen as my surgeon. I was looking for a good revision Rhinoplasty surgeon in California. I had a consultation with many doctors in California. Finally i had a consultation with Doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen in Beverly hills. I had 3 consultations with Doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen before the surgery. I flew from San jose to Los Angeles for the first consultation. For the remaining 2 consultations i drove from San jose to Los Angeles. It was a worth consultation with various photo images of my nose. I went thru internet for the reviews about doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen, there were bad reviews about him, which were bothering me a lot, at one point of time, i thought i can choose some other doctor instead of doctor Ellenbogen. But those 3 consultations with doctor Ellenbogen were really pretty good. I convinced myself to choose doctor Ellenbogen for my revision rhinoplasty.

  • My experience with Dr. Ellenbogen was perfect at the 1st phone call.  I turned 40 this year and i had my mind set on Acculift laser. I had traveled from Manhattan Beach to Pasadena several times to see a Dr. who did not post pictures of before and after's of this laser.  After many attempts of wanting more concrete proof of his work this Pasadena Dr. and staff stopped communication with me, RED FLAD i thought. I searched the Internet and found Dr. Ellenbogen who was much closer to me in Beverly Hills. I spoke with his friendly staff and Dr. E got on the phone right away when i mentioned that i was looking for the Acculift laser. He explained why he doesn't believe in a laser with no visible results. It made sense to me now why the Pasadena Dr. posted no pics on his website and why when I pressed they began ignoring my phone calls and emails.  Dr. E is the "father of fat grafting" a term I never had heard until i spoke to him on the phone. I was impressed how he took the time to explain and educate me, he was even further generous and waived the consultation fee! From my 1st appointment to my surgery which was yesterday I have had a lovely experience with my now life long plastic surgeon. His wife is often times in the office and she is truly the great woman behind the kind, gentle, skillful, and generous plastic surgeon. If you are looking for the fountain of youth let your own stem cells do that for you, do not use fillers you will look fake over time. Your own stem cells will do the magic trick and with the "father of fat grafting" you simply can not go wrong. Dr. Ellenbogen and his staff made me feel like family! This is so refreshing from a Dr. in Beverly Hills. There is nothing pretentious  about this Dr. he is simply wonderful and kind I highly recommend you give his office a call, Jenna will greet you and treat you like gold! I loved my experience, expect the best when you call and I am confident you will have an amazing experience like I did!

    This note is difficult to write because it is hard to find words that adequately describe the fantastic surgical result I had with Dr. Ellenbogen. He is an artistic and surgical genius. He was able to do what no surgeon before had been able to do-- figure out a way to radically improve my appearance. I almost did not get surgery from Dr. Ellenbogen because of negative reviews that had been posted on various websites (it appeared that they might have been written by the same person using different names, which was suspicious). I had had a horrific plastic surgery experience in 1987 from a different surgeon and I did not want to take any chance of going through something like that. Because of those negative posts, I did an incredible amount of research before deciding to select Dr. Ellenbogen. I read countless medical journal articles, talked to other highly respected plastic surgeons, and did many other things to try to get to the truth. After all that research I concluded that he was among the best plastic surgeons not just in the country but on the planet. After the surgery I happened to talk to a nurse who provides aftercare for the patients of over 25 different plastic surgeons in the L.A. area. I asked her if she could go to any surgeon she wanted--anywhere-- who would she choose. Without hesitation she replied, "Dr. Ellenbogen, because he is the very best." I wish I had known her before the surgery because I could have avoided having to do so much research, because she not only has observed the surgical results of these doctors herself, she also has nurse and doctor friends who also know who the very best surgeons really are. He has an incredibly kind staff in his office and they were especially helpful in the days after the surgery. If you have any questions, you can email me and I will try to respond. I normally do not post notes on the Web anywhere. I am going to try and post this note on as many Websites as I can because Dr. Ellenbogen was so kind to me and I appreciate so much all he did for me. Good luck and God bless you.

    Dr. Rich S. is the most amazing Plastic Surgeon in California, if not the world. He has performed his genius and artistry on people that come to him from all over the world. I am lucky enough to reside in the area and have gone to him many times over a period of 20 years. He has keep me looking young and natural, by doing small procedures, as I aged. His sensitivity and pure talent with his approach to the face is remarkable. He works exclusively on the face!



    He chats with me at first, takes my picture and then projects my face onto his screen. He is very focused, and transfers my requests i.e. face, neck,  nose, etc.. with computer to show me EXACTLY how I will look after the surgery. With my face and the touch of his hand, he is able to collaborate with me on my desired results. With my suggestions and also his input for perhaps a very slight change that did not occur to me, he reveals his brilliance as a surgeon. 



    I am one month and a half, out from a mini face lift, upper eyelid, neck lift. The result is more wonderful than I could have imagined. The skill and precision with which he performed my procedures, are as perfect as you can get. At one month, I look so natural, that a friend that I usually see about once a month, asked me if I changed my hair color to a bit more auburn. No one would ever believe that I had just had this surgery.


    You may contact me for a personal reference on the phone,. My phone number is 

    1 323 272 4998. I would be happy to meet with you as well, if you are in the LA area, to show you my face!

    Dr. Ellenbogen is an excellent doctor. He is very conservative and his work is very natural. He encourages patients to take less extreme measures and avoid surgery wherever possible. I was very happy with the revision rhino, partial facelift and fat grafting that he did for me. No one could tell that I'd had "work done". I just looked great. He is also very funny and personable. I was very afraid to undergo the procedures but he helped me feel comfortable. He also explained everything thoroughly so I understood what was happening throughout the process. In the end his work was very subtle and a nice improvement.

    I had two surgeries with Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen, both with very good results. The first time, ten years ago, he did my whole face including nose and ear surgery, chin implant and fat grafting. He also lowered my upper lip using a special technique that he developed. After that surgery I could finally close my lips. My features became more refined and balanced. I was very pleased with the results. 



    Lately I started to notice signs of aging on my face, especially around my eyes which got darker and sunken. I went back to Dr. Ellenbogen with the idea of putting fat into my face and also into my breast. I used to have very nice looking breasts before I had my babies. After my pregnancies my breasts became flat, deflated, and saggy. Dr. Ellenbogen said that replacing my old implants with new ones was a better option than putting fat into my breast. I'm glad that I listened to him and went ahead with both the breast surgery and the facial fat grafting. The results of the breast surgery are beyond my expectations. They are just beautiful. They are full and lifted. They are very attractive from any angle. They have a lot of projection, upper pole fullness, and no visible scars. I'm also very happy with my facial fat grafting. My face looks fuller and younger. My eyes don't look hollow anymore. My jaw line is improved and there are no deep folds and hollows on my face.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I had an incredible experience with Dr. Ellenbogen.  He is very kind and professional, and gives you all of the information you need to know.  Before my surgery, he took pictures and showed me exactly which lines he wanted to change on my body, and 4 months later, looking at my before and after pictures, he did EXACTLY what he said he was going to do.  I got silicone implants, and they look and feel SO real.  They are in a great position on my body (not too high or too low) and the incisions are disappearing very quickly.  The surgery was a breeze - the nurses were so sweet and made sure that I was very comfortable and happy.  I was really nervous but his whole team (nurse, anesthesiologist, and dr.) made me feel really taken care of.  My pain afterwards was not too bad, I didn't have to take any prescription pain medication, I just relied on tylenol (and valium for the first couple days).  I was back to the gym in two weeks, driving in one week, and most of my pain was gone by the first month.  I am SO happy with my decision - if you want a great boob job, don't make a mistake and go with a cheap doctor - Dr. Ellenbogen is worth every penny.  Also: his assistant Sarah is the absolute sweetest person, and she will take care of your every need.  She answered so many of my random questions pre- and post-surgery by email within 24 hours.  She also doesn't give off anything close to that pretentious bev hills vibe that you get from a lot of people who work in plastic surgery - I fully trusted that I'd chosen a great doctor after talking with her for a couple minutes.  Summary: I wouldn't change a thing, Dr. Ellenbogen is an artist.

    I attempted to write a review in February of Dr. Ellenbogen but for some reason it did not post.  It's very important to me to give credit where it's due, here is my story.  I met with several cosmetic surgeon's the beginning of this year as I wanted to have a neck lift and some other procedures done to give a more youthful appearance though I wasn't sure at the time what I actually wanted.  Never having any cosmetic surgery done I was nervous and needed to find a surgeon I felt comfortable with.  There is no shortage of  qualified surgeon's in Los Angeles but what I immediately loved about Dr. Ellenbogen was his obvious love for what he does. He is truly talented, he's been doing this for a long time and he put me at ease by taking time to talk me through the procedures, pay attention to what I was hoping to accomplish and then providing me with his professional opinion.  This may sound like standard procedure but what I found in meeting with many cosmetic surgeons is that I felt rushed even though they were charging a consultation fee.  I never felt rushed with Doctor Ellenbogen, I always felt he was giving me his full attention and therefore I felt comfortable he would go into the surgery with this same attitude. I had several meetings with him before I committed to having surgery and every time he welcomed me and talked through all of my concerns and expectations.  Many of the surgeons I met with, I felt, were trying to up sell me, whereas Dr. Ellenbogen actually talked me out of a few of my ideas and minimized the neck lift that I ultimately received.  I could not be happier with my results and I highly recommend anyone looking for any facial cosmetic surgery to seek his expertise.  He truly is an artist and genuinely loves what he does and shows in his work.

    I recently visited Dr. Ellenbogen's office for a consultation.  Although I hadn't made an appointment in advance, they were able to fit me in since I had only a few hours in Los Angeles before my flight.  

    Dr. Ellenbogen was extremely nice and and professional who took so much time to explain everthing.  The doctor is really funny too.  He made me laugh with his witty comments which made me feel comfortable.  Dawn Wilcox who is the office manager was also extremely ncie.  She was very professional.  I would definitely recommend this doctor to everyone.  I believe he is one of the best in the nation.  You should see Dr. Ellenbogen before having a procedure done anywhere else.

    I had a problem with my nose, the shape of my nose was not a normal one, it was a kind of asymmetry.  My left nostril was smaller than the right nostril. Also i had one more problem with my nose, that is, there was a depression on the upper side(place between two eyes) my nose. Totally it did not look like a normal nose. I was feeling unhappy most of the time, also i had a low self esteem.  I got this bad nose because of my first surgery back in 2003 with a bad surgeon, i dont want to mention his name here in this review.



    I was looking for a good revision Rhinoplasty  surgeon in California. I had a consultation with many doctors in California.  Finally i had a consultation with Doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen in Beverly hills. I had 3 consultations with Doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen before the surgery. I flew from San jose to Los Angeles for the first consultation. For the remaining 2 consultations i drove from San jose to Los Angeles.  It was a worth consultation with various photo images of my nose.



    During the consultations, doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen told me that he gives me number 3 out of 10 for my present nose. But he assured me that he can make it to number 7 out of 10 for my nose after the surgery. I was so much excited, but i had many questions going on in my mind, because my nose is a complicated one, i was not sure how he is going to perform a surgery to give me a number 7 nose.



    I went thru internet for the reviews about doctor Rich S. Ellenbogen, there were bad reviews about him, which were bothering me a lot, at one point of time, i thought i can choose some other doctor instead of doctor Ellenbogen. But those 3 consultations with doctor Ellenbogen were really pretty good. I convinced myself to choose doctor Ellenbogen for my revision rhinoplasty.



    Finally surgery was performed on my nose. Everything went well during the surgery, there were no complications involved in the operation theater. After the surgery, the next day, i saw my face on the mirror, it was a not the same nose, my nose shape was totally changed, it looked NORMAL . I was so excited and thrilled. The next day i met him, he told me that it was one of the most complicated surgeries he performed. THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY TRUE, BECAUSE I KNOW ABOUT MY NOSE. 



    It has been now almost 3 weeks after the surgery,  i am seeing a new person in me. I am very much happy now. I thank God for doctor Ellenbogen, i believe it was God who made me to choose a right doctor for my revision rhinoplasty.



    Now i can fit my nose in number 8 to 9. Doctor Ellenbogen gave me a good nose more than what i expected. I strongly believe in God, i thank God for him.

    I was sold on a radio frequency skin tightening procedure that permanently melted my fat cells and left me with ugly dents and loose saggy skin on my face and forehead.

    It was the most devastating time in my life until I was blessed to find Dr. Ellenbogen.

    He came highly recommended for performing fat graphs and natural looking face lifts.

    I was terrified to undergo such invasive surgery but felt I had no choice because my damage was so severe.

    After my reconstructive surgery that included a face life and fat graphs with Dr. Ellenbogen I went to see my Dermatologist that I have been seeing regularly for 20 years.

    He was witness to my damaged face before my surgery and then three months after my reconstructive surgery with Dr. Ellenbogen. 

    His reaction was Dr. Ellenbogen was not only a great surgeon he was an artist.

    I was so afraid I was going to look different after such radical surgery,  but when i was all healed and went to visit family for the first time my always honest sister said I look just like myself just younger.

    I can not thank Dr. Ellenbogen enough for giving me my life back : - )

    After searching for a plastic surgeon to remove a large keloid scar, I chose Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen when I saw he was honored as one of the top 10 Plastic Surgeons in Los Angeles.   Although, previous surgeons have failed with injection therapy, I felt I would need Plastic Surgery to remove this scar.   Dr. Ellenbogen is a good listener and had total confidence in my treatment.  His Patient Care Coordinator, Sarah is very kind and answered all of my questions and concerns in great detail.  I am very happy with Dr. Ellenbogen and his entire staff.

    While I was visiting Los Angeles my doctor in the bay area recommended that I take the time to see Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen of course,  I did previously hear about the famous Dr. Ellenbogen from the previous T.V. Beverly Hill plastic surgery.   When I called his office his staff very informed & helpful to accommodate  my travel schedule. They went above & beyond in making every arrangement for me.  



    Meeting Dr. Ellenbogen was a wonderful experience he is so patient, he also  is so knowledgable.  He answered all of my questions & brought up some issues I was not even aware of which made me feel very comfortable in choosing Dr. Ellenbogen .

    My father had a large skin cancer removed at the corner of his mouth and when it healed it scarred down  tightly and he couldn't open his mouth. He couldn't eat or talk very well. Also the corner of his mouth turned down making him look unhappy.The doctors he went to couldn't fix it. I asked a client of mine whose husband is a plastic surgeon. Dr Ellenbogen  took one look at it and of all the doctors i had consulted, he said he could fix this for my dad. He did the surgery in his Beverly Hills surgery center.  . Not only can my father eat normally he looks as if  he did before he had the extensive skin cancer surgery. We are so grateful to Dr. Ellenbogen .He treated my  dad who is a cab driver with the same respect he gives to his celebrity clientsl.Bless you Dr. Ellenbogen. You are the most experienced, talented surgeon we have ever met.

    Dr. Ellenbogen has been an angel for me.  He helped me when no one else would.  I have a rare medical condition called Parry Romberg Syndrome which disfigured my face by causing the tissue on the left side to atrophy and making it asymmetrical.  Dr.  Ellenbogen reconstruced my chin, filled up my cheeks and my mouth, and straightened out my nose.  I consider my first surgery a success.  He didn't want to do too much because it is a process.  We have plans to do more, I just need time to recover and see how my body accepted the fat grafts.  His staff is amazing!  I have never felt so welcomed and well taken care of.  The nurses who were there for my surgery made me feel so comfortable.  My family was very thankful for such an awesome staff.  They felt I was in good hands with Dr. Ellenbogen and his team.  I would definitely recommend him and his team!

    After deciding to have my very first cosmetic surgery procedures, I knew I needed to do extensive research into each potential surgeon's background and abilities.  I met with 3 surgeons over the course of 3 months, all of whom were highly qualified.  What I realized through this process, however, is that it takes more than pure ability to be a successful cosmetic surgeon or at least one that I was willing to allow operate on me.  All of the doctors I met with had stellar reviews and the appropriate credentials, however upon meeting Dr. Ellenbogen I knew immediately he was the one to do my surgery.  Not having any prior cosmetic surgeries, I needed someone who was willing to take time and walk me through the process as well as hold my hand through it, which Dr. Ellenbogen and his staff did with me during my numerous visits before the operation.  Dr. Ellenbogen sat with me and showed me what the results would be on a computer simulation as well as walked me through the process of exactly what he was going to do each time I came in for a visit. The numerous visits were my choice as I wanted to feel comfortable and have a grasp on what I was about to do and he always made the time to meet with me.  I also truly appreciate the fact that he told me what I didn't need, which most surgeons do not do.  Dr. Ellenbogen isn't a surgeon interested in selling unnecessary procedures nor is he willing to do any procedure the patient wants just to make money, it's clear that this is his passion and with his 30 years of experience he has perfected his craft.  

    I think it's also important to point out that I believe a doctor's staff is a reflection of who he is and everyone that Dr. Ellenbogen surrounds himself with is incredibly helpful, kind and knowledgeable.  I loved everyone from the surgical staff, to the front desk staff, they are a lovely group of people.  I'm still in my first week of recovery but I can already see dramatic results and have nothing but admiration and gratitude for Dr. Ellenbogen.  He will be the only surgeon I go to or refer anyone to, because in my eyes he is a true artist.

    I met Dr. Ellenbogan last fall and found him to be good natured and informative. I felt comfortable talking to him and he answered all my questions. I have been using a face cream he developed with good results. My skin has a nice glow and my facial spots have gradually disappeared. I would trust him with any surgical procedures I chose to do.

    I was recently  involved in a car accident and was in a huge panic trying to find the right plastic surgeon to stitch up my extremely obvious forehead gash so as to minimize potential scarring.  Luckily, I was referred to Dr Rich S. Ellenbogen by a trusted friend, and he warmly welcomed me into his office at a moment's notice and personally stitched my wound.  I was beyond impressed with his gentle and professional bedside manner, he was so calming to me in my nearly hysterical state!  He was genuinely concerned for my well-being and recommended I see a neurologist in case I had a head injury that I wasn't aware of and told me to avoid any medication, even Tylenol, in case I had a concussion.  I felt he really took his time with me and was beyond meticulous with his work (he actually demands silence while he works!).  I have been told by many what an immaculate job he did with my repair, and although I am still healing I can tell I will have little to no scar whatsoever! I am so grateful to Dr Ellenbogen for his professionalism, skill and outstanding care.  I can absolutely see why he has such an amazing reputation in town and why patients from all over the country seek out his skill and experience.  Thank you, Dr Ellenbogen for all you did for me, I am more appreciative than words can express.

    I found out about Dr. Ellenbogen around 2003 when a relative recommended him for plastic surgery.  I was in my early 20's and for a while considered rhinoplasty, but did not know of a surgeon who could achieve the result that I wanted-that was something nice, natural looking, and a fit for my face.  I saw a lot of nose jobs growing up (as common as it is) and felt that I had to continue looking until I found the right person to do the job.  Dr. Ellenbogen corrects many bad nose jobs that other doctors perform, this tells you something.  

    Finally, I contemplated going to Dr. Ellenbogen after visiting his website (beverlyhillsbody.com) for years.   I saw that he was an expert and worked on many types of cases , and did not perform an ordinary cookie-cutter nose job like some other doctors (believe me, there are a lot inexperienced ones out there). It was a match, so I made an appointment for a consultation.  I was really excited and a little anxious, and remember the counselor asking me if I needed more time to think about it, but I couldn't wait any longer and felt ready.

    Before my consultation, I was not aware of the elements that make up a balanced profile- nose, chin, and fat under the eye area.  I saw that I needed a bit more work than I thought.  Eventually I got a chin implant and fat grafting which balanced out the rest of my profile.  The results were truly amazing, my nose became proportional and prettier, my chin more masculine, and cheek/under eye area younger-looking.  The fat grafting procedure uses your own stem cells as well as fat to smooth out and plump an area that may look sunken in. It actually promotes collagen growth and can make you look years younger.  

    I'm so satisfied with the results and the boost of self confidence it has given me.  I would always turn my face to try to hide the bulbous tip and the relatively large size of my nose when taking photos, but no longer have to.  If you are considering any cosmetic surgery, please see this man, he will change your life for the better.  He's very funny, to the point, honest, and an expert in the industry.  He also has caring and highly professional staff.  They will greet you and treat you like a real person and not BS or bully you into getting anything done unless you want really want to.  

    My recommendation for anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery (especially face work) is to visit his website and see what his has to offer.  Make an appointment if you like what you see and get ready to change your life (I know it sounds like an infomercial, but I really mean it).   This is my authentic opinion and wish that I had done the procedures much earlier.

    A MUST READ for THE TRUTH about Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen (from a current patient)!  I fortunately found Dr. Ellenbogen through Gayle Anderson's Chanel 5 News segment on The Best Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, trusting that Gayle did thorough research, I decided to go for a consultation.  My consultation was long, detailed and extremely informative, at the end, I knew without-a-doubt that this is "The Doctor" for me. He is skilled, talented, gifted, well-respected, knowledgeable, has 30+ years of experience and impressive accreditations, but he's about much more than his A+ skill set, he's brilliant at aesthetics, to me he's an artist, and he understands women and beauty along with being kind and caring... We decided together that I could significantly benefit from: an eyebrow/forehead lift, removing the fat packets from under my eyes, doing a neck lift, and facial fat injections. I had my surgery in January 2011, everything went very well, I was surprised at how fast my body healed and that I didn't even need pain med's, the truth is that I had a significant amount of work done and it was quite easy to recover from. It's now months later and I am so happy with the results, I truly "look 10 years younger" and the results are "natural looking". When "My Doctor" told me that he could make me look 10 years younger, it was THE TRUTH!!!  Also, during my time in the Doctor's waiting room, I had a few lengthy conversations with three other patients, they all felt as I do, they where glowing with feelings of gratitude that they found Dr. Ellenbogen! And during my initial consultation, we went through many photo albums showing his other patient's before and after pictures, his work is the best available!!! I strongly encourage anyone considering plastic surgery to choose Dr. Ellenbogen and I encourage readers to check-out my integrity and reputation for assurance that this is a genuine and sincere commentary.

    I realize this is not the timely response you were looking for but I think this response will be helpful for others. Eight days ago I had a facelift, and fat transfer. I am 53 years old and prior to my surgery I looked pretty good for my age, but I wanted Dr. Ellenbogan to make my face look more like I use to about 10 years ago as m cheek bones were starting to show gravity, and the area above my eyes was starting to look a bit hollow. I was quite nervous about this. I actually looked for 2 years to find a plastic surgeon I would be comfortable with and ended up flying out of state to come to Dr. Ellenbogan. I made the choice to seek him out based on his before & after pictures online. They just seemed to reflect a natural look, and actual improvement. When I arrived to his office, my first impression was that his office was a bit dated, but I quickly reminded myself, that the reason I came was not to see an updated office. I then met Dr. Ellenbogan. What impressed me was that he looked at my face and I didn't feel like he wanted to change me much, but he could also tell me what we could do to gain the result I was looking for. I was pleased to hear him respond with appropriate suggestions that made sense to me. He also used his computer to show me the differences. It seemed he went to great length to make sure I really would know what to expect. I asked him if he could bring the corners of my eyes up a little, because I like that look in other women. His response really surprised me. He said Tricia that would not look right on you and I don't want to do it. It would ruin your sweet look. You are not exotic.

    This response was a surprise, but I knew then that he cared about his results, and he also cared about his patients. I didn't commit to the surgery that day but I did leave with a general feeling that this guy knows what he is doing and that if I chose him, I would be in good hands. I should also say that 20 years earlier I had a face lift that didn't go all that well. They did an upper bleph & took too much fat out. They also tightened too much on one side so my face was a bit lop sided. So I was not a simple case. 



    I did make the decision to have my surgery with Dr. Ellenbogan, and I had it 8 days ago. I have to tell you, I am completely amazed. My face looks symmetrical & although I'm still a little puffy, I can tell I'm going to look 10+ years younger. He added the fat back in my eyes, also a little fat grafting, and also performed a neck & face lift. I honestly couldn't be more thrilled! I should tell you that the reason I'm writing this review is for patients who have just had surgery with Dr. Ellenbogan. Although I checked his references via phone I did not go online to read reviews until after my surgery. Thank God because I might have been too scared to have the surgery based on a few of these reviews. One thing seems clear to me, that someone is angry with Dr. Ellenbogan and many of the bad reviews have come from that same person. What I didn't appreciate was that the reviews scared me. So this person is doing a disservice to other people, not just Dr. Ellenbogan. I can't say enough. THIS GUY IS GOOD! Take your time with him, and make sure you are realistic with what can be done. If you are, you will be happy. This guy knows what he's doing. Look up his credentials. Their office asked me if I would be willing to be on their website. I really can't do that because I am known publicly, but I wish I could. I hope this is helpful for you. If you've already had surgery with Dr. Ellenbogan, give it a week before you judge how you are going to look. The face swells so funny that it's really hard to get an accurate picture before 1 week. Good luck! I wish you the best.

    I have the best breasts of all my girlfriends. They are soft and lay flat when iI do. They bounce naturally when I walk and they are just the right size. Dr. Ellenbogen is a mindreader. I didnt even need a pain pill and the incision is only 1 inch long.Why go to his students when you can go to the teacher of them all.

    Also my mother had a facelift the same day and we recovered together. We both threw away our pain pills we didnt need them. She looks like my sister and now she wants her breasts done by Dr. Ellenbogen.

    I think Dr Ellenbogen does the best noses in Los angeles. I was at a shower for my girlfriend in her mothers house. There were pictures of her as a teenager. She had a huge nose and a small chim. I never knew she had a nose job. I kept looking at her profile and it was perfect like a cameo.I asked her and she was not ashamed of it and told me it was Ellenbogen.I looked over at her sister who also had too good a nose for a person of middle eastern heritage. "Ellenbogen I asked?" Yes she answered.

    He has operated on our whole family.I actually went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror at my nose.

    Doctor Ellenbogen showed me on the computer how I"d look with a buccal lipectomy (chubby cheeks operation) and fat grafting to my cheekbones and wrinkles.It is almost 3 years later and my cheekbones he gave me with fat grafting are if I say so myself amazing.How he makes the fat last is a secret he says then again he has done thousands and thousands. I think it is something with activating the stem cells but I'm not sure.My girlfriends mother had fat grafting by another doctor and it was gone she says in six weeks.I recommended Dr. Ellenbogen and he redid her and she looks 10 years younger than her age.Expeience counts.

    Two excellent results

    Recently I felt as though people barely noticed me ...even my husband tended to be too busy to spend time with me. Then I found Dr. Ellenbogen and consulted him about having a cosmetic tune up.  My nose came first, which everyone complemented and asked "wow who did your nose job?",  then I had my breasts done.  Dr. Ellenbogen did such a great job on them, that now my husband can't keep his hands off of me  .  If I need any other cosmetic procedures, I know exactly who to go to.  ...Thanks Dr. Ellenbogen!

    Feel real good about my tummy tuck.

    A couple of years ago I gave birth to my first child, and little did I know how difficult it would be to lose my bulging tummy.  Then I found Dr. Ellenbogen. He took the time to provide a thorough education on the procedure of undergoing a tummy tuck. Dr. Ellenbogen clearly laid out the pros and cons of the operation which made my decision easy. Having gone forward with the operation I now feel  really good about myself. All I can say is if there is one cosmetic surgeon I'd trust my appearance, it's Dr. Ellenbogen.

    Chin Implants and Facial Reshaping

     
    Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen is a great doctor, the office is absolutely beautiful, the staff is very friendly and attentive. I went there referred by my best friend, and what a great experience. Dr. Ellenbogen takes his time with you, he makes sure that all the questions you might have are answer. I visited at least six different doctors and ultimately he was the best choice for me. His prices might not be quite as accessible compare to other doctors, but he is worth it, besides when it comes to a plastic surgeon you don't want to go with a cheap one.

    Wrote the book on eyelid surgery



    I went to Dr. Ellenbogen for a consultation about an eyelid surgery. Since I had a eyelid surgery in Europe about 10 years ago, I really needed resurgery. Through lots of good reviews about him and his education and experience, I called the office and made an appointment for a consultation.  I learned that he has written a number of books on eyelid surgery (both upper and lower). Getting rid of the bags above and below the eyes. The results were far better even than the first time I'd had it done.  Thank you so much Dr. Ellenbogen. Don't hesitate to go and visit the most modern facility in Beverly Hills.    Tina C.

    Natural looking nose

    I've spent many years pondering plastic surgery and interviewing for the best surgeon (I had looked into probably about 15-20 surgeons across the country), level of experience, talent as a doctor and surgeon, the painstaking detail and artistry he puts into his work, congenial bedside manner, and rarely might you hear this in combination with those listed above... reasonable price point.    Dr. Ellenbogen focuses all his energy on ensuring the highest quality of medical care to each of his patients.     Now, I've looked at a lot of doctors, and very rarely have I seen all four of these credentials. You have to be a very talented doctor to be able to achieve all that he has accomplished. No wonder he trains other  plastic surgeons. That's why Doctor Ellenbogen has become the "Go to Guy" for other doctors to refer  patients who have had bad nose jobs. Dr. Ellenbogen is not afraid to tackle the toughest cases.    To further demonstrate his focus on quality rather than quantity, I remember I spoke with another doctor and I asked him how long a rhinoplasty would take, and he said with his years of experience, he could knock it out in about an hour.    I was looking for a surgeon to take all the time necessary to ensure that my expectations are met. And that is what Dr. Ellenbogen did. We've spent many consultations discussing rhinoplasty so he knew how particular I was about it - in surgery, he spent painstaking hours on every detail on my nose alone and I am thrilled with the results. He didn't even charge me for the overtime in the operating room!

    Dr. Ellenbogen has done an amazing job with a tummy tuck as well as restylane/botox. He can customize according to your needs - if you don't want too much, he knows exactly how to accommodate. Quality of his work speaks for itself. Very happy with the results!  Very happy with my new look!    Marcia Sanders

    I recently had a surgery performed by Rich S. Ellenbogen and Beverly Hills body and I am VERY PLEASED with the outcome. I was very skeptical about going to him at first but I decided to go for the consultation to have my questions and concerns answered. Needless to say I was very impressed with him and his staff so I went through with the procedure. I can't speak for others but my experience with Dr Ellenbogen was very pleasant and I would recommend him for others!

    Dr Ellenbogen is one of the premiere Dr's in the United States!  I decided to call Dr Ellenbogen and Beverly Hills Body after seeing him Dr 90210 and I am glad that he took my consultation. Being from out of the Country I was worried about where I would stay and how I would get around. Dr Ellenbogen assured me that I would be taken care of once I got off the plane, he was right! He had a car pick me up at the airport and take me to a luxurious hotel that is soo beautiful. After the consultation I decided to get several facial procedures done. I am very impressed with the work that Dr Elenbogen did, I feel like my face is his masterpiece. He is truly an artist and one of the most gifted and talented men in his field!

    I am, and have been a patient of Dr. Ellenbogen for many years and his is probably the greatest most experienced rhinoplasty surgeon today.  He is a WORLD RENOWED DOCTOR who was featured on Dr 90210, has done numerous talk shows and also does guest lectures at some of the most well known Universities in the United States.  I would recommend Doctor Ellenbogen and Beverly Hills Body to anyone who is looking to get work done.  He is an exceptional Doctor that has a beautiful plastic surgery center. Do yourself a favor and go visit Dr E for a consultation!

    I am a male who has had some work done By Dr E and I am not ashamed to mention it (won't tell you what I had done though!).  He was very up front with me and we went over what procedure would be best for me and he always gave me is honest opinion.  From my experience living in LA for the last 5 years I know there is a sub culture of guys getting work done. If you are looking someone to keep everything private and give you the best results I strongly recommend going to Beverly Hills Body and Dr Rich S. Ellenbogen.

Dr. Rich S. Ellenbogen:


Welcome to my new website. I am Dr. Rich Ellenbogen. My surgical staff and I are experienced and compassionate professionals practicing cosmetic surgery for the past 30 years.  In your personal consultation I will carefully explain all aspects of plastic surgery using state of the art imagery.

We are aware that most cosmetic surgery candidates are concerned.  Will I like the result?  Am I selecting the right surgeon?  Some patients consult with me several times before their operation and I welcome that.  The more you know the better. It is important to make the right decision. Any type of cosmetic surgery must not be expensive or out of range for anyone who can benefit from its life changing results. Necessary cosmetic surgeries such as Skin Cancer repair, Burned Skin, Cleft Lip and Palate, Rhinoplasty, and others should be accessible not just for celebrities but to those who can most benefit from its magical results. We strive for natural and pain free results with minimum down time.

Our Beverly Hills practice has grown considerably over the past few years. While the majority of our patients are originally from Los Angeles, Orange County, and California in general, an increasing number of patients are now traveling from far distances. As the reputation of our Stem-Cell-Facelift known as Ellenbogen Lift, Facial Fat Grafting, Rhinoplasty, Revision Rhinoplasty, and Expression Surgery have grown nationally and internationally, in fact, I now routinely see patients that come as far as Europe, Middle East, Japan, and China. In order to facilitate this, I now employ a full time travel concierge who specifically assists with my out-of-town patients. Our travel concierge can arrange a phone call and Skype meeting with me. If plastic surgery is right for you, she can then help in arranging your surgery. This includes helping with financing, flight arrangements, ground transportation, overnight accommodations, and making sure that all the necessary paperwork is completed and received. In special occasions when flying is hard or impossible for my patients, I can fly to potential patients. In summary if you prefer that I do your surgery, I am glad to fly to your city or country to make it happen.

I have dedicated my career to advancing the art and science of plastic surgery as a teacher, lecturer and for children in the third world countries.  Plastic surgery is my passion.  My experience has allowed me to bring my results to a new level unobtainable by most plastic surgeons today. I know you have many choices and I am truly flattered if you decide that I am the best surgeon to do your plastic surgery. Please feel free to set a consultation time with me and I will be glad to answer all your questions before you commit to any surgeries. The more you know about your operation, the better you will feel. You can also email me richellenbogen@gmail.com with your images and questions. I usually respond right away. Hopefully we will see you here soon. Thanks.
