Ratings for Dr. Paul L. 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!
Dr. Leong is an amazing doctor, and highly knowledgeable about the use of cosmetic fillers. I had a non surgical rhinoplasty about a year ago to correct an "inverted v" deformity caused by a rhinoplasty performed by another surgeon 8 years earlier. Dr. Leong's non surgical rhinoplasty corrected the "divits" in my nose that had destroyed my confidence for years, and I love my nose now! I wish I had found Dr. Leong sooner! He's a wonderfully skilled doctor, and I will never trust my face to anyone else again! I plan on seeing him for tear trough fillers in the near future, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an expectional, compassionate, talented cosmetic surgeon!
Ive been to Dr. Leong"s office approximately one dozen times for various injections, Ultherapy, etc., and have really come to enjoy Dr, Leong and rely on his opinion(s). He has never tried to over-sell services to me and I have never felt "rushed in and out" of my appointment. He is the third plastic surgeon I've been to in the greater Pittsburgh area and he will be the last. Great doctor -
I had blepharoplasty surgery,diysport and tear trough Restylane done by Dr. Paul Leong four months ago. I am very happy with the outcome.I feel like a fresh or younger version of myself. The outcome is very natural yet noticeable. Dr. Leong does a very effective dental block prior to the filler, so it is relatively painless. The blepharoplasty surgery was done under local anesthetic, it was relatively painless ,as well. Tear trough restylane is a remarkable procedure , in which Dr. Leong specializes. He fills the hollow area under the eyes where women appear to have dark circles. This procedure really takes years off. This is not an easy procedure to do, the plastic surgeon needs to be particularly skilled. I will absolutely use Dr. Paul Leong for any additional plastic surgery .
I had a wonderful experience at Dr. Leong's office. From the first time I called the office for a consultation the staff was very friendly and took their time explaining everything to me. I called a few times after this and they were so patient and kind to me. Dr. Leong himself was awesome as well. He took a lot of time explaining the procedure (tear trough injections) in great detail. I didn't feel rushed at all and after talking with him I felt I had a thorough understanding of the process. My favorite part was that Dr. Leong didn't make me feel like I necessarily "needed" to have anything done. There was no pressure put on and I never felt hurried. I felt completely at ease and confident after talking with Dr. Leong. I'm extremely happy with the results from the procedure. The area under my eyes looks better than I had even hoped. It has been a couple months since having this done and it still looks great. After my experience I know that I will definitely return for future cosmetic procedures. I'm thoroughly impressed with the office altogether and love my results!
I am so happy I chose Dr. Leong with my face. He performed the non surgical rhinoplasty to correct the indents on my nose, making my nose look straight again! I was so happy with my results, I went back to him to to fill my tear troughs. I was really worried about swelling or even bruising under my eyes after the procedure, but there was neither!! He truly is THE best at what he does! I am so happy with the new me! I wish I would of done this before my wedding day!
Dr. Leong and his staff are AMAZING! I can not say enough about them! I have received Dysport and Restylane from him and wouldn't trust this procedure to anyone else. I had restylane prior to coming to Pittsburgh and the results were awful! Dr. Leong is so personable, you are never rushed and it is truly a positive experience. I am so happy with the results and I always make my appointment for the next time before I leave. Thank you to Dr. Leong and his staff! You guys truly are the best!!!
When researching plastic surgeons online, I read about Dr Leong and his practice....I had been thinking about having plastic surgery for a number of years, but couldn't quite get up the nerve to actually talk to someone about it... after reading reviews from other patients of Dr Leong's online, I decided to make an appointment.... One of the best decisions of my life ! Kim was so easy to talk to and put me at ease right away....and when I talked to Dr Leong, I knew you had made the right choice! Dr Leong and his staff are very meticulous and take the time to make sure you understand all aspects of the procedure ....I am so happy with the results medically and aesthetically from my surgery I can't even put it into words. They took the time to get to know me and have even called me on weekends to see how I was doing ! How many doctors do you know in this era that would care enough to do that?? I have every confidence in Dr Leong and his staff and would recommend them to anyone! They treat you as more than a patient... They really care about you!
I relocated from the SF Bay area of CA three years ago and was a little apprehensive about whether I could find a doctor here that could live up to those in the Bay. I have been very lucky to find Dr. Leong, as he has exceeded my expectations. I am an avid exerciser and I had lost volume in my face/cheek area due to aging and a lack of fat. He replaced that with Sculptra and the the results have been long lasting and so natural that no one asks me if I had work done, they just say how great I look. He has also done a bit of filler in my tear trough area and in the parenthesis lines from my nose to my mouth. Dr. Leong takes the time up front to get to know his patients as people so that he can provide them with the best solutions. He listens to concerns and offers options explaining all the pros and cons. He never pushes treatments that are unnecessary and I like his conservative approach. He has a thorough knowledge of the latest techniques and has a skilled eye for what looks natural and a very caring manner. I have been thrilled with the results as he helps me look as good as I feel. I am certain when it comes time for a face lift I will trust my face to no one else.
I wished to have a face and neck lift done. I needed a blepharoplasty as well. However, I didn't want people to see that I actually had something done to my face. I was looking for a specialist who would be able to fulfill my dream and give me as natural a look as possible. I was very lucky to find Dr. Leong who performed a wonderful job for me. I was nervous during my first appointment; however, Dr. Leong's very polite and friendly manners calmed me down. He answered all my questions in very professional manner, and I decided to schedule the surgery. I had an excellent experience with my stay in the hospital and with all my following appointments. I was happy to learn that Dr. Leong has a very gentle touch, and his clients heal more fast than average patients. Three weeks after surgery I went to my hairdresser, and she couldn't believe my good looking face and happy smile. She told me that that she never saw anyone looking this good even after 5-6 weeks after facelift surgery. The most important fact for me is that my face looks better every day, and this is my own face without any distortions. It looks just more youthful and fresh. If I need to have something else done to my face, I'll, definitely go to only Dr. Leong. I would recommend this excellent specialist to anyone who desires to have natural and rejuvenated appearance.
