Dr. Ellenbogen is a True Hero! - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Ellenbogen is a genius and a true artist. When I flew to LA for my consultation, he spent a good bit of time with me reviewing my case and his recommendations. The coolest thing he did was to take a photo of me, then he pulled out paint and a paintbrush and he painted onto the photo what my new nose would look like. I was so thrilled with his vision (and the fact that I had something to take home to show my family and friends.) I drove to Beverly Hills with my Mom and camped out for a week for the surgery and recovery. Dr. Ellenbogen was so warm, comforting (and he brought just the right amount of humor to put me at ease.) The results of the surgery are amazing; they look exactly like the photo that he'd painted for me. People look at me now and tell me they would never have known I had my nose done because it looks so natural. (And, I can tell you, prior to my surgery, my nose was a hot mess - depending on the angle you looked at me from, I looked like three different people and there wasn't a lot of material left for him to work with.) I really don't know how he did it, but kudos to Dr. Ellenbogen - I highly recommend him.

Finally... Finally I Got It Right... - Los Angeles, CA

It was difficult for me to trust since I have been so unhappy with my other rhinoplastys. Dr. Ellenbogen was kind and very empathetic to my psychological state. He listened to every concern and earned my trust after me going back 6 times to talk with him.

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.

Lifting your and volumizing your face with new treatment

As the "Father of Fat Grafting", I invented the volumetric facelift. Basically as a face ages, it deflates like a balloon losing air. I pioneered a way to reinflate the face by inserting fat in areas where it has been lost in the aging process.
