I went to Richard Ellenbogen because I thought he must be good to be on TV and in magazines. Little did I know that he needs to pay for publicists and advertisements all the time because he has such an awful reputation. The only way he seems to be able to get patients is through buying himself fame and scamming the public.
Don't even trust the photos on his webpages. Richard Ellenbogen owns numerous webpages that look like testimonials for him, but probably all of them are photoshopped and full of bs.
Like the other two who filed reports about Richard Ellenbogen, I too, was left with a deformed and mutilated nose that was extremely short, crooked and almost tipless with extreme nostril retraction.
I made the biggest mistake to let Ellenbogen operate on me twice. The second time around he even did more damage, and my entire nose collapsed.
Besides making me look deformed and like a pig, I was unable to breathe.
Richard Ellenbogen refused to give me a refund, and he tried to inject free floating silicon into my nose after he destroyed it. That is when I went to a doctor in Newport to try to reconstruct my nose. However, it was so destroyed, he was unable to give me much improvement.
Then, I had another reconstructive surgery in Chicago that improved my nose from the deformed and mutilated wreck that Richard Ellenbogen left me with.
Though, I still am not completely normal looking because of how drastically Richard Ellenbogen harmed me.
I need to get a lip lift to close this gigantic space between my nose and my lip that Richard Ellenbogen left me with.
Richard Ellenbogen is very nasty and arrogant, and many of the reconstructive surgeons that I have consulted with have told me that he is an alcoholic/drug addict. I can't state for a fact if this is true, but many of his peers say that they have seen him drunk and intoxicated at medical conferences, etc. Also, this would explain why so many people have been butchered by Richard Ellenbogen.
I truly feel that the there should be a class action lawsuit against the state of California for allowing Richard Ellenbogen to continue to practice since so many people including myself have filed extremely valid medical complaints against him.
The state of California has allowed other drug addict/alcoholics such as Jan Adams to mutilate and destroy people too. Jan Adams only got in trouble after he killed Kanye West's mom -- probably because it made the newspapers since she was a celebrity.
At least two people have died from surgery with Richard Ellenbogen -- yet nothing has been done to stop him.
Richard Ellenbogen's "accomplice" Babak Dadvand is not even certified, yet he does much of Ellenbogen's surgeries.
I suggest, if the news reads this -- they contact some of the people who have been mutilated and/or seriously harmed by Richard Ellenbogen. One lady is Nora, and if you google "Nora's Ellenbogen" -- you will see her horrible results. Ellenbogen altered her photos and put him on his website as promotional material! Nora's email is Nouc7186@aol.com
Another victim of Richard Ellenbogen is Dean, the moderator of the Rhinoplastynetwork. Dean knows of many people who were harmed by Richard Ellenbogen. Dean had one reconstructive surgery since Ellenbogen's destruction of his nose, and he needs at least one more. His email is email@example.com
I know many that are interested in getting a class action lawsuit against Richard Ellenbogen including both of the other people who filed reports. However, the statute of limitations in California is one year. I feel that the statute should change or the state of California should be sued. California is very negligent for not revoking his license years ago.
