Richard Ellenbogen, MD Reviews (21)

Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Elenbougen is a very knowledgeable, experienced, kind, sweet and lovely person. he is very professional and knows his job. also, he has the best staff working with him start with the coordinator Mrs. Ashly, Mrs. Hetter, personal assistant, the nurse, the anasticiologist and the co-surgeon during the surgery.

Neck Lift

Had some post/op problems, that led to longer healing time.

Buccal Fat Removal

Dr. Ellenbogen is a genius. I would recommend him to anyone seeking to look natural and beautiful but better. The best surgeon anyone could find. I was treated with respect, the procedure turned out better than I imagined

Face Lift

Doc E. was very knowledgeable and caring and wanted to assist in every way that I achieved the results I wanted. Feel younger and attractive and sexy

Eyelid Surgery

I look younger, I feel younger, I get so many nice compliments. I had the excess skin taken off of my eye lids. I cannot believe how much younger I look. I was telling my sister that I had the excess skin taken off of my eyelids and as I was telling her about the amazing experience I looked into her eyes and before I knew it the words oh my goodness, you have my old eyes" came out of my mouth. She liked my eyes so much she is going to have her eyelids done as soon as her children go back to school."

Neck Lift

Dr. Ellenbogen is the best! The office staff was very friendly!

Eyelid Surgery

All of it, if you want the best, go see this doctor. . Dr. Ellenbogen was /is fantastic. I am so pleased with the work he did. My grandson has not seen me since the surgery (June, 2015) and he thought I looked fantastic, his friend also thought I looked like my youngest daughter (who modeled in Paris). I am beyond pleased.Great job, no one can tell and I would recommend Dr. E to anyone.

Butt Lift Fat Transfer

I researched surgeons for a long time before deciding on Dr. Ellenbogen. I had him do a breast lift a few years ago and it was done so well I had almost no pain. I only took 2 tylenol and no other pain medication. He is the best in his profession in my opinion. Even though I live out of state I refer everyone to him, because I feel that their recovery time will be faster and the surgery will be better if he does the work. His work is incredible!

Breast Implant Revision

I had my large implants taken out and replaced with smaller ones.They feel a lot lighter and look amazing. Over all, everyone in the office is very professional and very friendly!!!Dr.Ellenbogen really is amazing and truly cares and listens to his patients.Love him!!!

Eyelid Surgery Face Lift Fat Transfer Neck Lift

I look rested and feel great and no one can tell I had anything done (except close friends and family). I think I look terrific. People think I am 20 years younger than I am. I would get more done now if I had the funds. Great experience

Breast Augmentation

My surgery was done awhile ago but I considered having it re-done. My doctor was honest in telling me that it was premature and his honesty was admirable. Dr. Ellenbogen is a talented surgeon and has a wonderful practice.

Chin Implant

I feel so much more confident now. I never have to worry about what angle my face is aimed, because I know it looks great from every angle now. I don't look extremely different, I just look like the best version of myself. Which is exactly how I wanted to look. Dr. Ellenbogen is an artist and a genius. He was able to achieve a very natural aesthetic and thanks to his expertise and extensive experience I recuperated with minimal pain or bruising. I would recommend him to anyone that is thinking of having surgery but does not want to look like they've had work" done. "

Face Lift

The single best thing? I couldn't answer that. The single best thing to happen right after the surgery was when I asked for a senior ticket at the movies and got a very strange look from the cashier guy. He said, Well OK this time" and I told him that wasn't good enough. Pulling out my drivers license and showing it to him was wonderful. His chin almost dropped. Senior prices at this movie house start at 60 or 62. I'm 73. Guess Dr. Ellenbogen removed about 10-12 years from my previously sagging face." Dr. Ellenbogen did an excellent job considering what he had to work with! I intend to go back for a bit of touchup work.Dr. E. is a genius. Hope he never retires. Well, on second thought, that would be as long as his hands are as steady as a rock.I would like to have known that it would take a long time for my head to stop feeling numb. No big deal in the overall picture... but it still feels weird.


Doctor did what I wanted; Patient coordinator told me everything I needed to know/expect.

Face Lift

The procedure made me look consideraby younger than I am. I had a teffific surgeon and got a great result.

Face Lift

I am a repeat patient with Dr. Ellenbogen. He did such a great job the first time that I went back to him again. He is an artist!

Facial Fat Grafting

I feel better about my appearance. Since I am a widower, and 61 years old, I am glad about that. Dr. Ellenbogen successfully restored the contours of my face to resemble my younger self by performing facial fat grafting. Prior to his surgery, two other doctors had done successful surgeries to improve the area under my eyes and the area beneath my chin and around my jawline. Dr Ellenbogen's surgery complemented the result of the other procedures, and as a result I look younger. The results of all of these surgeries were subtle, but I have received numerous compliments stating that my appearance has been improved, yet it is not apparent that I have had any work done." Dr. Ellenbogen paid close attention to the areas that concerned me prior to surgery, and corrected these without overdoing any area or changing any area that I did not want changed. The office staff was pleasant and supportive before, during and after the surgery, and always made me feel comfortable with the process."

Face Lift

The doctor was good to me during the surgery and after care, but after the healing took place he didn't alleviate my dissatisfaction even though I told him I was dissatisfied. I liked him though. He was and polite, but he said there was nothing more he could do about my uneven face, and he fell short of reducing the swelling on my right eye that looks like its permanent. I am planning to see a dermatologist to ask if he can fix it.

Chin Implant

Loved my experience! Great team and made me so comfortable.
