I have seen him 2 times and plan to go back. I tent to be the cautious type and ask a lot of questions. He has taken the time to explain and elevate my concerns on both occasions. I also do not want to look done just refreshed, I really felt like he got me. He is very informative, personable and has an easy way about him that is comforting. I did not feel pushed or pressured by him or his staff.:)
Dr. Rivkin and his staff are wonderful. I am a man in my late 30's and had the nonsurgical nose job to correct a bad surgery. I tried the Radiesse first, and loved it so much that I opted for a permanent solution, Artefill. Everything went great. Dr. Rivkin even helped significantly decrease scar tissue in the tip of my nose. He is the rare person gifted with intuition and technical skill. The procedure changed my life, and I will always be grateful to him. I flew from out of town (St. Louis) five times because the Artefill must be layered in. This might not have been terribly convenient, BUT it was WELL worth it. Dr. Rivkin's reputation for precision and excellence are more than deserved, and I can tell you with 100% certainty that he cares about his patients. Thank God he practiced in the U.S.! If you're unsure or anxious, give him a chance; I promise you won't regret it. Office staff: Karen, Gina, Allie, and April-- all very professional, competent, and truly kind. Recommend highly.
Been going back to see Dr Rivkin since a few years mainly for non surgical nose correction. Had always great results. Appreciate staffs and Dr's honesty when it comes to procedure pro and cons and info regarding pricing. Everyone is nice and professional. I am sorry for the "bad" experience some had. I encourage everyone if not completely happy to go back talk to Dr Rivkin and he will "fix" it! People remember we are all human and no Doctor is a god just because they wear white! Dr Rivkin wants his patients to be happy with themselves after procedure so if you feel results are not as expected then go back and see him! I for my part highly recommend him to friends and family. Thanks Doc!MS
I have had Restylane (several different times several years ago) injected in my nasolabial lines and around my mouth by Dr. Rivkin. I have also had similar procedures done by other doctors. Dr. Rivkin was the best and he's a nice guy. I would recommend him to anyone for these procedures (fillers), and I am just a happy patient; have not been in any way asked or coerced to give my opinion.
Dr. Rivkin is truly talented with the fillers,loved my results however, the bad thing about it is that he tells you to come back in two weeks for a free touchup and yet getting an appointmnet is like hell and by the time it comes around, it has been a month, and now they put me on a waiting list?
Dr riven is awesome, and sexy. I had a non surgical nose job by him and I felt so much more confident and great afterwards. There was no pain and only a tiny bruise that lasted for one day. Your nose is technically bigger because he is filling it, but he makes it symmetrical so that it blends better with your face. My nose is crooked with a big bump on the top. I did have to be injected twice before the raddiesse stayed in, and it did last about a year and a half. But I looked so great without having to go through a surgery-- my own father and boyfriend couldn't notice that I had the injection, I just looked extra pretty for some reason and no one could put their finger on it. I highly recommend dr riven, and he non surgical nose job for anyone that has a minor flaw or wants to see what a rhinoplasty could look like.
Do not go to this doctor. He will mess up your nose and you will be left with a bigger nose. I went to this doctor for a non surgical nose job and he barely examined my nose and just kept shooting radiesse into it. Now my nose is so much bigger, it looks great on the side but in the front its huge and looks funny and droopy. There is a good reason why he does not put frontal pictures of his patients on his website because he knows people will not come in and give him money to mess up their noses. Once the radiesse is in your nose it will stay there for 3+ years which if I had known I would have not. I told him I wanted a non surgical procedure and he didn't tell me he was injecting the longer lasting radiesse, I thought it would be reversible which he didnt explain to me. Now I have this bigger droopy nose and am stuck iwth it and the radiesse shifts everyday and I dont know what I will look like when I wake up. He is not as skilled as he says he is. He just injects noses
