Are you a patient of Larry C. Leverett, MD, FACS?
He really took his time with me was very detailed and made sure I understood what he was saying. He answered all of my questions and even had me try on sizers during my consultation.
I have been wanting breast augmentation for years. Finally I do it. It isn't bad as some people describe. Yes I have some discomfort and I'm taking meds so I sleep alot. I workout daily and I'm healthy so my post op isn't too bad. I got 525 cc saline and moderate plus profile. I can't wait to see them drop in place. Day 4 post op. I just want to make it clear. I'm very happy with my breast...
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Today marks 16 weeks since my 'Mommy Makeover' and that said, this review is 16 weeks late in coming! What took so long? When writing this review, I wanted to make sure that I did it right to express my appreciation for Dr. Leverett with the best detailed review. After all, he and his staff gave me the best detailed experience my initial visit to surgery to post-op visits. In 2000, I had a...

Dr. Leverett and his staff are GREAT! I felt at home almost immediately. I was always greeted immediately; my appointments were always -- literally ALWAYS --- on time. They were never late. They explained everything I need to know, gave me information to read, and were overall VERY helpful and friendly. I would recommend -- 100% -- this office. My husband agrees. He was very concerned that the procedure not be overdone. It was absolutely perfect. I am still healing, but I would do it again.

Dr. Leverett has been perfect. I am so happy with my experience from the consultation, thru the surgery and thru my post surgery check ups. His office staff explained all my options and what to expect thru the whole procedure. I am very happy I decided to have this done. I have been going to Dr. Leverett's office for 10 years now and I have never had a bad experience thru Botox, peels, etc. Great guy!
Hello everyone!!! I have wanted to get a tummy tuck for over 10 years but never had the courage to actually go through with it. Well finally I got the nerve to schedule a consultation and my husband was completely supportive. I had a TT, MR, lipo to the flanks, and a hernia repair. The first 3-4 days I had so much pain. Each day after the first week got better and better. This was no walk in...

Many of our patients are able to have an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, on an out-patient basis. This allows them to recover in the comfort of their own home. Patients can elect to have Exparel which is a 72-hour anesthetic agent that helps reduce the level of discomfort and results in the need for less pain medication. Patients often find that they receive better attention, help, and care when they can designate a significant other, family member or friend to take...
The ideal candidate for an abdominoplasty is a person who is within 10-15 pounds of their ideal weight, has a BMI of 28 or below, has excess skin, stretchmarks and/or muscle laxity following weight loss or pregnancy. The abdominoplasty procedure removes excess skin, can remove all or some of the stretchmarks on the lower abdomen and repairs the muscles that can stretch with pregnancy. Women often find the abdomen protrudes out regardless of how many sit-ups they do or how thin...
It is a common belief that breast implants need to be replaced every 10 years. The need to replace breast implants occurs when an implant ruptures and/ or the implants become firm, known as capsular contracture. The rupture rate is higher with Saline implants than with Silicone Cohesive Gel implants. The most common reason for capsular contracture is bleeding around the implant. This could be surgical bleeding at the time of surgery, trauma to the breast at any time after surgery...
Dr. Leverett has extensive experience with Breast Augmentation using the Dual Plane technique. With a Dual Plane Breast Augmentation the implants are placed under the muscle in the upper portion of the breast, and over the muscle in the lower portion. In many cases this allows patients experiencing minor droop, known as ptosis, to achieve a lifted appearance without the standard external breast lift incision. Patients are able to maintain a smooth transition with the muscle coverage...
Breast implants are produced in many sizes and several shapes. They are primarily saline (salt water) filled or silicone (cohesive gel) filled with similar shells (silicone based outer covering). Saline implants are less costly. In some patients, they provide excellent enhancement. However, if there is insufficient breast tissue coverage, saline implants have the highest incidence of visual and palpable ripples. They also have a higher incidence of lateralization and bottoming...
