Ratings for Dr. Paul L. Leong
From Las Vegas to Pittsburgh. Why would I come all the way from Las Vegas to Pittsburgh to have a rhytidectomy (facelift)? The answer is Dr. Paul Leong. I have treated over 8,000 patients of my own in my specialty of orthodontics and I have interacted and observed hundreds of healthcare providers; also, I have taught orthodontics for ten years in a university setting. With that clinical and didactic experience comes an ability of be able to pretty accurately discern a professional that is not only very capable but who is also genuinely sincere. I did lots of research evaluating the many practitioners that provide rhytidectomy procedures, I would think there are many fine providers of this service, but how do you choose one? Basically, they all claim to be great at what they do. I started practice in August 20, 1972 and since that time what has got me up in the morning is to provide the kind of care I would provide to a member of my own family. Yes, I know that is easy to say but I really mean it. Now, soon to be 46 years later, what gets me up in the morning is that same motivation. And, to my residents whom I teach in my specialty, I try to encourage that same motivation for them after they complete their training. To illustrate to them why they owe this to their patients, I point out to them that when they or one of their family members are wheeled into an operating room and they see the bright lights shining in their eyes, they will hope and pray that the surgeon is very well trained, is highly motivated; and, genuinely sincere in providing that surgical procedure. Before choosing Dr. Leong I listened very intently to him as he has lectured at various professional meetings via the internet. I was very, very impressed. I immediately knew he had the right stuff, so to speak, and, equally important, he had the sincerity I was looking for in a surgeon. That made my decision to travel to Pittsburgh very easy for me. I am now five weeks post-op and the results could not be better! I am very happy that I did not let distance stand in my way. He is a tremendous surgeon and also is an extremely kind and caring person. I high recommend Dr. Paul Leong!
I had thoroughly researched plastic surgeons to perform my upper eyelid surgery, narrowed it down to three , and went for consultations. Hands down , Dr. Leong was the winner. I immediately felt very comfortable with him. He spent a lot of time explaining in detail what to expect and answered all my questions very patiently. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. After the surgery, he called to check on me. I was extremely pleased with the results and have been back several times for tear trough fillers and Botox. He is not only a good doctor but a good person.
Dr. Paul Leong is an amazing plastic surgeon. He preformed rhinoplasty/septoplasty on me a year and a half ago. The results are phenomenal! Not only am I thrilled with the results of the appearance of my nose, I can breathe better! If you are looking for a talented yet compassionate surgeon who truly cares about your wants and needs Dr. Leong is the one to go to. He genuinely cares about his patients health and happiness. He saw me several times before my surgery to make sure I was comfortable and that all questions were thoroughly answered.
I have been seeing Dr. Leong for over 2 years. He is a great surgeon with awesome skills. Dr. Leong is not like many other surgeons. He really tries to know me and he's very friendly and easy to approach. He listens carefully about what I want and gives me his professional opinions. He never tries to sell me anything but to provide what I need. I really appreciate his expertise and work on me. I'm very satisfied with every procedure he did for me. I would have him as my surgeon for as long as possible but I have to leave the city. I highly recommend Dr. Leong.
After thoroughly researching what to look for in a plastic surgeon, I was thrilled to find Dr. Leong. I spent months reading various plastic surgery sites. Those sites helped me choose Dr. Leong because he fit all the critera. His medical training was done at prestigious hospitals along with various fellowships. He is board certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology (head and neck)Surgery and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery . He works only on face and neck procedures which was very important to me. Prior to selecting Dr. Leong, I consulted with other plastic surgeons as recommended. None could compare to the individual treatment I have received from Dr. Leong. I never felt rushed or pressured into making a decision and was given an honest evaluation of which procedures would be appropriate for me. In November, 2016, Dr. Leong performed blepharoplasty surgery (upper eyelid) with filler injections under my eyes. The procedure was done with local anesthesia in his office and I felt no discomfort during or afterwards. Nothing stronger than an occasional tylenol was ever needed. My eyes look amazing. The tired look is gone! Two months later, in January, 2017 Dr. Leong performed a face and neck lift. After the initial 24 hours following the surgery, I had no need for pain medicine stronger than tylenol. Dr. Leong called on a regular basis inquiring how I was doing. I also have had many follow up appointments to track my progress. As stated during the consultations, I would have a refreshed, natural look. That is exactly what I was after and exactly what happened. As I approach the age of 67, I am thrilled with my results. I have always been an active, young at heart individual. Now my face matches how I feel inside! Dr. Leong is a truly remarkable facial plastic surgeon and a warm, wonderful individual. I also have to mention his esthetician, Lauren. She is delightful, helpful and accommodating! I look forward to consulting her about skin care products. Do your homework and research. Im sure you will come to the same conclusion. Dr. Leong is a skilled artist of plastic surgery. I would trust my face to only him!
