Dr. Ellenbogen's Experience

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

After observing, evaluating and qualifying a patient (both physically and emotionally), Dr. Ellenbogen tries to instill trust so that he can come as close as possible to delivering just what the patient expects. 'My word is very important to me. I never promise what I can't deliver. I have dedicated myself to the highest standards of the Art of Plastic Surgery, but I never forget the human element. The goal of a plastic surgeon is to improve a patient's self image, and I take that responsibility very seriously. My staff and I try to give patients a very positive experience with as little inconvenience and discomfort as possible. We are experienced professionals, who strive to the highest standards available.
