Dr. Richard Ellenbogen, Physicians & Surgeons  Cosmetic, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Los Angeles, CA

With a customized treatment plan that will address your unique signs of aging, Dr. Ellenbogen can achieve beautiful, natural looking results that help you look and feel your very best.

For Your Nose

Many people desire a nose that is more balanced with the rest of the facial features. That’s why rhinoplasty, a surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Ellenbogen is dedicated to achieving a result that looks more natural and less “surgical” with conservative, conscientious techniques.

Nose Procedures

For Your Face

Your face is the main focus of your appearance and personality. Unfortunately, that’s exactly where the first signs of aging begin to show. The effects of aging, sun damage, pollution, and general stress can take their toll on your face and neckline. A successful facelift is judged by its artistic simulation of a younger face in all aspects.

Face Procedures

For Your Breasts

Whether you would like to restore the breast shape & fullness you once had, correct asymmetry, or improve the fit and comfort of clothing, being happy with the shape and size of your breasts can make a positive difference in how you feel every day. We invite you to learn more about your options for breast enhancement with Dr. Ellenbogen.

Breast Procedures

For Your Body

Sometimes taking care of your body with good eating habits and exercise isn’t enough to give you the shape you want—that’s where we come in. Looking to regain your pre-pregnancy body, or slim and sculpt areas that aren’t responding to diet and exercise? Dr. Ellenbogen offers body contouring procedures designed to help you meet your goals.

Dr. Richard Ellenbogen is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been practicing cosmetic plastic surgery for almost thirty-eight years.

He is the go to guy to resolve revision of previous unsatisfactory surgeries for which he has been featured on television Prime Time.

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.

We believe the volumetric facelift, or its more familiar name "the Ellenbogen Lift", is the most advanced and most natural, fastest healing, and least painful of all facelift procedures practiced today. Doctor Ellenbogen has been able to observe his patients over the years and improve his technique to make it last longer and look more natural.

Revision Rhinoplasty

If you are unhappy with the result of a previous rhinoplasty procedure, then you may want to consider revision rhinoplasty to restore balance to your facial features and improve any functional issues associated with breathing. Revision rhinoplasty is a highly specialized procedure that is often much more difficult than the initial nose surgery.
