Dr. Kotler’s Beverly Hills Superspeciality Surgery Practice

Dr. Robert Kotler’s cosmetic surgery practice is highly specialized to a limited range of facial procedures. We offer select treatment types, including: 

Almost all surgery performed by Dr. Kotler is a version of rhinoplasty, whether that’s surgical treatment or a permanent non-surgical rhinoplasty with injectables. Dr. Kotler has also perfected an extensive, but non-surgical, approach to chemical deep wrinkle removal that proves more effective than many popular laser skin treatments.

Our surgeon and his entire team find cosmetic surgery highly gratifying. Particularly rewarding is delivering an improved nose to a young patient, whose self-esteem is so important for their future wellness and confidence; the lifetime benefit is immeasurable. Dr. Kotler is committed to delivering one of life’s great positives: a better sense of self, with internal satisfaction and contentment.

Background and Training in Cosmetic Facial Surgery

Dr. Kotler initially pursued a career in engineering, but a biology course changed his direction; he was fascinated. During his education, Dr. Kotler received broad training in all aspects of head and neck surgery, including cancer surgery, facial reconstruction, sinus surgery, and microsurgery to reconstruct the hearing mechanism.  Following residency and board certification, Dr. Kotler served in the military and was given the opportunity to find out which varieties of surgery truly suited his passion and skill. He moved to Beverly Hills for further study when out of the service, where his superb education and training prepared him for his private practice.

At the time, he was one of the earliest young surgeons to pursue fellowship training in facial cosmetic surgery, which he added to with an apprenticeship that advanced his skills in non-surgical rhinoplasty, primary rhinoplasty, and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. After seven years, Dr. Kotler decided to restrict his practice to only the five most important facial aesthetic procedures, setting himself apart in the field of facial plastic surgery as a superspecialist with a purposely select range of treatments.

In addition to his career an accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Kotler is:

  • A Clinical Instructor, Head and Neck Surgery at UCLA Medical Center
  • Credited with 52 medical publications and presentations
  • A contributor to 14 medical textbooks and books on cosmetic and plastic surgery for the public

What Makes Dr. Kotler Different: Unique, Extensive Experience

After his time as a military surgeon and his training with some of the world’s foremost rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Kotler established himself as super specialized in nasal and facial surgery – a degree of focus in his field of work that few others can match. By purposefully limiting his practice to a small range of facial treatments, Dr. Kotler has been able to achieve a level of skill unparalleled by many face and body plastic surgeons whose treatments range from rhinoplasty to trunk and bodywork. He is committed to his cause and providing patients with dependable, conservative procedures that meet their needs.

As taught by his mentor, a professor at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kotler truly believes, “the secret of the care of the patient is caring for the patient.” For our specialist and our team, it truly is that simple.
