Los Angeles/Beverly Hills Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Richard Ellenbogen MD, FACS, FICS

Dr. Richard Ellenbogen is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been practicing cosmetic plastic surgery for almost thirty-eight years. Primarily serving the cities of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, his specialities at this time include facial de-aging surgeries, such as rhinoplasty, facelift, eyelid surgeries, neck and jawline rejuvenation. He is the go to guy to resolve revision of previous unsatisfactory surgeries for which he has been featured on television Prime

I attribute my success to four factors: first, the utilization of my “artistic eye” to create realism; second, keeping abreast of all procedures performed around the world and adding those I deem meritorious to my own practice; third, my ability to form an understanding of the patient’s needs and desires and accomplishing them; fourth, adhering to safety and avoiding complications.


The Father of Fat Grafting

Dr. Ellenbogen has chosen to make facial plastic surgery a primary focus of his practice, and he has pioneered several procedures commonly used today. He is regarded by many plastic surgeons as the “father of facial fat grafting .” As a result, Dr. Ellenbogen knows exactly where to place the fat to recreate the shape of a youthful face.

After observing, evaluating and qualifying a patient (both physically and emotionally), I try to instill trust so that I can come as close as possible to delivering just what the patient expects. My word is very important to me. I never promise what I can’t deliver. I have dedicated myself to the highest standards of the art of plastic surgery, but I never forget the human element. The goal of a plastic surgeon is to improve a patient’s self image, and I take that responsibility very seriously. My staff and I try to give patients a very positive experience with as little inconvenience and discomfort as possible. We are experienced professionals, who strive to the highest standards available.
