5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Amazing Results! - Pittsburgh, PA

Dr. Leong is an amazing physician! He is extremely thorough and is highly knowledgeable in the area of injectables. He really takes his time to answer all your questions and provides in-depth information regarding procedures of interest to the patient. His skill really allows the patient to feel comfortable and know they are in good hands. Take it from me, you can trust Dr. Leong with your face! It is very scary with all of the medispas and even dentists doing Botox and fillers now. It is so important to find not only an actual physician, but one that is skilled and trained. Dr. Leong perfectly fits the bill!

Love, Love, Love the Results! - Pittsburgh, PA

I had been seeing Dr. Leong for about three years and knew I wouldn't trust anyone else. Dr. Leong is top in his field but besides being an awesome clinician, he is also caring, compassionate, informative. He took all the worry out of the procedure. His administrative and nursing support are also impressive! I received pre and post op treatment like I was their only patient. Bottom line: We are all brought up to be modest but I have to say - I look good!

22 Year Old Female, Rhinoplasty - Greensburg, PA

Dr. Leong is the most friendly and knowledgeable doctor I have ever met. He takes plenty of time to explain the pros and possible cons of the procedure, and gives you a realistic idea of what you will look like after your procedure. I had my rhinoplasty in May of 2014, and have absolutely no regrets. It feels so good to no longer be self-conscious about people staring at my nose. I would...

Love my Eyes - Pittsburgh, PA

Dr. Leong spent a lot of time explaining the procedure and what my expectations should be. He was very honest and explained every aspect of the procedure from before, during and after. Dr. Leong will schedule a number of follow up visits with you, all of which are included in your surgery cost. He is also available 24/7 by phone or email. He even answered my questions when he was out of town. I always knew he was available if I needed him. His office staff are all just as professional as he is. My experience and results were wonderful.

Upper Blepharoplasty - Pittsburgh, PA

Dr.Leong performed an upper blepharoplasty on me and it was such a positive experience. He and his nurse Kim truly take the time with you to explain everything in detail and I never once felt that he was pushing me to do anything or that he was too rushed to take the time with me that I needed. During the procedure, he made me feel so comfortable and reassured. The night of my procedure he...

Restylane for Tear Troughs...23 Y/o Hereditary Under Eye Bags - Greensburg, PA

As a 1st time cosmetic treatment patient, I felt very comfortable and secure with Dr Leong as my doctor for this procedure. I had initially consulted with a nurse at a 'medi-spa' and I am so glad I changed my mind and went with Dr Leong instead. He really understands that this is not equivalent to getting a haircut or manicure..it is a medical procedure that requires extensive knowledge and...

A Much Needed Help for Under-eyes - Pittsburgh, PA

Dr. Leong was very honest and open about the procedure. He put my mind at ease. He made sure I knew all the risk factors and details involved with these types of filler injections. He told me everything--I felt really educated on the process when I left. I also felt welcome and know--come what may--I am able to call or return to the office with any questions/concerns. It is my face and they know how important it is to me!!! :)

Recommendation - Pittsburgh, PA

I highly recommend Dr. Paul Leong for several reasons. He didn't have anyone screen me to determine if I was a good candidate, was committed to having surgery and could meet the cost of surgery which was very different from the experiences I had in other consults. He explained in detail the various procedures so I would know my options and could make an informed decision. I wasn't pressured in any way to consider anything other than what I said I wanted which was also different from previous consults. There were no surprises and the surgery went exactly the way it was explained to me. Following the surgery, Dr. Leong called me every day for the first week and encouraged me to call him at any time if I had questions or concerns.During follow-up visits, I was again impressed with the time he spent with me. He connects with his patients at an emotional level and builds trust by being warm, compassionate, kind and genuinely a nice person. I am thrilled with the results!
