I went to see Dr. Ellenbogen after living with 2 botched nose jobs for over 15 years. During my initial consultation, he listened to my concerns and made some additional suggestions on how he could improve my face. I found him to be very attentive and charming. During the visit, he took a photo of me and then took a paintbrush and painted on the photo to show me his vision of what my nose should look like. It looked absolutely beautiful and I decided he was the man to fix my nose. One thing that was nice about this is that I live in Arizona, and I was able to bring the photo home to show my family and friends.

On surgery day, Dr. Ellenbogen's awesome sense of humor comforted me and made me feel a lot less nervous.

As for the results... they are amazing. I honestly don't know how he did what he did to my nose, but it is absolutely incredible. I still see people I haven't seen in a long time and they can't believe how good it looks. He's a little bit more expensive, but well worth it. One of the smartest decisions I've ever made was my choice of Dr. Ellenbogen to fix my poor little nose.
