Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ellenbogen Appears on ABC News

December 22, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Premier Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Ellenbogen appeared on ABC's recent Primetime Special "Fixing Plastic Surgery Mistakes." The program tells the story of two female patients who turn to Dr. Ellenbogen to correct the results of bad plastic surgery procedures that left them physically and emotionally scared, self-conscious and desperate to restore their natural appearance.

Using his unsurpassed surgical skills, years of experience and fine-tuned aesthetic judgment, Dr. Ellenbogen successfully performs revision plastic surgery on Jordan, a former model whose oxygen intake was restricted following a previous nose surgery. He also corrects the contours of her lips by removing bumpy silicone deposits. Prior to surgery, when asked how she looks in the mirror, Jordan says, "I see someone who is very fake, and it doesn't match who I am inside." After revision plastic surgery with Dr. Ellenbogen, Jordan wakes up and takes her first clear breath since as long as she can remember.

Prior to revealing Jordan's remarkable results, the show documents the emotional journey of another Los Angeles plastic surgery patient, Marie, whose previous facial rejuvenation treatments left her with an unsightly appearance. She has a visible jawline scar from laser skin resurfacing, facial bumps from fat injections and a dent in her chin from chin implant surgery. "It just gets to a point where you don't look like yourself anymore," says Marie, just moments prior to undergoing surgery with Dr. Ellenbogen. After a revision facelift surgery in combination with a stem cell facelift and chin implant replacement, Marie is able to see instant improvements and no longer feels self-conscious.
A renowned Los Angeles plastic surgeon who is known as the "father of fat grafting," Dr. Ellenbogen says he spends most of his time fixing other surgeons' work. "Fifty, sixty percent of my procedures now are revisions of bad plastic surgery…. The list is just endless of things that are done wrong," says Dr. Ellenbogen.

One of the most published and innovative plastic surgeons in the nation, Dr. Ellenbogen has been producing remarkable aesthetic results for his cosmetic surgery patients in LA, including Beverly Hills breast augmentation, tummy tuck and facelift patients, for more than 30 years. He attracts clients from around the world who seek his services for initial and revision plastic surgery treatments. His success is based on his natural talent for aesthetics along with his commitment to keep abreast of the latest techniques in plastic surgery, understand his patient's desires and place patient safety and complication-free surgery as his top priorities.
