5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Incredibly Skilled and Caring Costmetic Surgeon: Dr. Leppink - Grand Rapids, MI

There was no other way to rid of gynecomastia and the condition had an extreme emotional affect on me and how I viewed myself. I had the surgery performed when I was just 17 years old and have never regretted one small bit of it...in fact, if I had not had the procedure done and had not had Dr. Leppink as my physician, I do not think I would be anywhere near where I am in life at this point. I...

53 Year Old Scheduled for BA on April 4, 2012! Can't Wait! Nervous About Recovery and Size. - Grand Rapids, MI

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Experience Possible -Grand Rapids, MI

I first saw Dr. Leppink 10 years ago for a breast reduction, then 2 years ago for a tummy tuck and most recently a BA after loss of volume after children/breast feeding. I've been so thrilled after each procedure. Dr. Leppink is such a caring man that has a wonderful way of putting you at ease. I would recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.

I had 4 consults all together (i know, I'm a little anal about being thorough) All of the surgeons I met with were...

1 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Disapointed in Skin Care Clinic/Front Desk

I went in for my post op appointments. My 1 month and 3 month to see Dr. Leppink. (he is amazing). I went over to the front desk of the Skin Care center to ask questions both times as I am interested in getting Juvederm injections. The ladies were having a conversation both times and acted like I was interrupting them. They were pretty rude. Blew me off. I have met with Jamey already and she...
