Biography:

Alexander Z. Rivkin M.D. is a Yale trained facial cosmetic surgeon and UCLA faculty member who has decided to focus his practice exclusively on providing his patients with the latest in non-invasive, non-ablative cosmetic treatments. He understands that no one relishes the thought of “going under the knife,” and believes that modern medical technology can provide today's patients with superior alternatives to invasive, painful surgery that requires a long recovery time. He has dedicated his career to developing these alternatives, creating exceptional cosmetic solutions that his patients can access without the fear that has so long been associated with cosmetic surgery. In 2003, he founded Westside Medical Spa – a national center for innovation in non invasive cosmetic treatments.

Dr. Rivkin has made his name in developing non-surgical alternatives to commonly performed cosmetic procedures. He has been featured on the TODAY show, the Tyra Banks Show, EXTRA, Univision, PBS, E!, We network and in numerous national publications for the innovative procedures he has invented. He was the first physician in the country to offer the Non-Surgical Nose Job, his signature method for non-invasive correction of cosmetic nasal irregularities. Dr. Rivkin has also helped pioneer the following procedures:

* Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement
* Non-Surgical Cheek Enhancement
* Non-Surgical Jowl Lift
* Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)

Dr Rivkin hails from a long line of skincare professionals. His grandmother was a highly respected facialist in Stalinist Russia while his grandfather developed the beauty products used for her custom facials. His mother, a well-known esthetician, continues the tradition, running a prominent skin care salon in Boston.

Originally from Odessa, Ukraine, Dr. Alexander Rivkin emigrated with his family to the US in 1975 at the age of seven. As his family struggled to pay for his education, a client of his mother’s beauty salon gave him a “Great Expectations” opportunity by paying for his schooling at Buckingham, Browne and Nichols, one of the country’s most prestigious private schools.

Dr. Rivkin received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University and his M.D. degree from Yale University School of Medicine. He received his postgraduate residency training in Otolaryngology-Facial Plastic Surgery at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Texas, Houston. He has published numerous articles and has been recognized for outstanding research achievements with grants and awards from the National Institutes for Health, the American Academy of Otolaryngology and the American College of Surgeons. He is currently a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, The Triological Society, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the California Society of Facial Plastic Surgery, the California Society of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery and the California Medical Association.
Dr. Rivkin's vision is to change the way aesthetic medicine is practiced today. He wants to see all patients have more non invasive cosmetic options and spends a significant amount of time educating other physicians both in the office and at seminars and meetings around the world. He was a member of the teaching faculty at this year's Rhinoplasty meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery. He is a prominent member of the national teaching faculties for Allergan, Medicis and Bioform. He is also a member of the physician advisory board for Contura and the Medical Spa Expo.
