If you recognize Dr. Alexander Rivkin, it’s probably because you’ve seen him on TV. As a cosmetic surgeon practicing in Los Angeles, Dr. Rivkin has made appearances on television shows such as Today, The Tyra Banks Show, EXTRA, and The Doctors. Among the topics which Dr. Rivkin discusses is his famous procedure for nonsurgical rhinoplasty, which offers the results of a traditional rhinoplasty without surgery—and therefore, without an extended recovery.
Dr. Rivkin got the idea for the procedure while attending medical school. He graduated from the Yale University School of Medicine in 1997, and formed his clinic, Westside Aesthetics, in 2003, to give patients access to nonsurgical techniques. He also instructs, as an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine.
At his Westside Aesthetics medical spa, Dr. Rivkin offers procedures specializing in the nonsurgical. As such, he offers—and was the first in the United States to offer—a nonsurgical nose job. In the same vein, he also offers nonsurgical jowl lifts, nonsurgical chin enhancements and nonsurgical cheek enhancements.
As a practicing cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rivkin is engaged in research on several nonsurgical techniques, and he belongs to a significant number of professional groups, such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons, the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery, and is on the physician advisory panel for Contura.
At the core of everything Dr. Rivkin does is a desire to minimize the pain of his LA cosmetic surgery patients and to, in the end, see them happy.
