The work of a true expert is immediately recognizable by its careful attention to detail and graceful, natural execution. Through his extensive training and over 25 years of experience, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Richard W. Fleming has become one of California’s leading specialists in the field of facial aesthetics. His surgical results are at once striking and natural, harmoniously integrating with each patient’s unique facial structure while improving overall facial symmetry.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Fleming has placed particular emphasis on mastering the delicate art of rhinoplasty. Today, he’s considered a rhinoplasty superspecialist: one of a select handful of plastic surgeons capable of producing personalized, flattering rhinoplasty results even in very challenging cases. He’s frequently called upon to perform both medical and cosmetic nasal surgery, including complex revision rhinoplasty procedures.
Dr. Fleming combines his advanced surgical skill with steadfast dedication to thorough, compassionate patient care. His office, The Beverly Hills Institute, is designed for patient comfort and privacy with state-of-the-art surgical suites created to accommodate the specific procedures Dr. Fleming performs. Dr. Fleming also ensures that each of his patients receives rigorous follow-up care after surgery.
Dr. Fleming is one of the most highly qualified facial aesthetic surgeons in Beverly Hills: He’s dual board certified, by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). He’s a Fellow of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American College of Surgeons, and he serves as the Medical Director of The Beverly Hills Institute of Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Rhinoplasty can be used to change the shape and proportion of the nose; it can also be employed to correct breathing and sinus issues. Both men and women choose aesthetic nasal surgery to eliminate distracting features, such as an overly prominent nasal bridge, protruding nasal tip, or wide nostrils. In some cases, rhinoplasty is used to “build up” a sunken nasal bridge.
A browlift is a surgical procedure that elevates the eyebrows and smooths out forehead grooves to create an alert, rested appearance. It’s ideal for patients who want a more permanent alternative to Botox injections.
Forehead reduction is a surgical procedure wherein excess skin is removed in order to position the hairline lower on the forehead. Dr. Fleming developed the Irregular Trichophytic Hairline Incision to camouflage the incision at the hairline. After the brows and forehead are elevated, and the hairline lowered when necessary, Dr. Fleming removes any excess skin and buries hair follicles under the skin.
Revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty, is used to correct poor primary rhinoplasty results. During revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Fleming typically restores volume to the bridge and tip of the patient’s nose, eliminating the “pinched” look associated with inferior rhinoplasty techniques. The proper execution of this delicate, precise surgery requires significant training and experience.
