The results. I also did fat graphting and a chin implant
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 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.
My Doctor: Richard Ellenbogen, MD
I found out about Dr. Ellenbogen around 2003 when a relative recommended him for plastic surgery. 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.
