5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

Simply amazing-No bruises-Fillers-No issues- BEST DR. period

Dr Leong is simply wonderful. I had injectables for the first time ever and I never ever thought I would do that. He did not pressure me to do anything. I had in three areas and I did not have a single bruise, except under one eye and I feel now that I caused that because I was messing with it. Not a single bruise on my lips at all. He is very gifted and I would never consider going to...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Dr. Leong is the best.

Dr. Leong is truly amazing. I went in to have restlyne filler under my eyes. After spending time I decided to go ahead and do the procedure. I was not swayed one way or the other. He's very personable and easy to talk to. So it's been 2 days since my visit and amazingly I had no bruising and swelling was little to none. I'm extremely satisfied. So if anyone is contemplating on seeing someone...

Why look like a hag if you don't have to?

My 2 best friends and I are getting ready to make our 4th trip to spend the afternoon with Dr. Leong. Writing this review is long overdue. We have all been so pleased with every aspect of our experience with Dr. Leong. Over our past visits we have had several different treatments including botox and dysport, juvederm, but the best of the best has got to be the tear trough correction. The...

5 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Nose Job

Amazing experience with non surgical nose job

About a year ago, I went to see Dr. Leong regarding a non surgical nose job, and I had meant to write a review on my wonderful experience for ages, but at least I'm getting around to it now! 8 years ago, I had a rhinoplasty by another surgeon, which left me with an "inverted v deformity" that greatly upset me and destroyed my confidence. I was afraid to have a revision done in case it would...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Amazing Experience

I never wrote reviews however I had to write about my amazing experience with Having my tear troughs filled in, it was the best decision. My eyes were very hollow/dark looking. I felt like a walking dead cast member. So I had to do something. As always, Dr Leong made my experience great. It was super easy, quick, and pain free. I bruise more than normal people but I just covered it with...

5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

Can't Believe It, I Actually Have Lips Now! - Pittsburgh, PA

I did a lot of research online before selecting a doctor, and I am happy to report that my experience with Dr. Leong was total satisfaction. To start, he personally came out to the waiting room to greet me and introduce himself. Then, we spent a lot of time talking about my expectations and all the possible risks. Dr. Leong was extremely upfront, candid, and thorough, which I appreciated. We worked together during the procedure to achieve the look I wanted. Every few minutes, he would show me the mirror and ask if I was happy with the result, and if there were additional areas I wanted to concentrate on. It's no coincidence that Dr. Leong gets so many positive reviews. He is a true professional who has a very warm, caring attitude toward his clients. I would also like to add that Dr. Leong's office receptionist, Kim, was a pleasure to work with as well. She returned my calls and emails promptly and was very knowledgable about the procedure I wanted done. In fact, she herself had had a lip augmentation done six days earlier! She was able to tell me exactly what I could expect in terms of pain and healing. I can't say enough good things about Kim. Both she and Dr. Leong were reassuring without being high-pressure or pushy.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Dr. Leong is the Very "Best"

I have been to dr long's office several times. He is warm, kind and professional as well as his staff. He really spends a lot of time listening and explains completely every detail. He has kept me very natural looking for my age. I would do all sorts of crazy things if he had allowed me. I was very lucky to find a doctor with such integrity. I found him by read reviews and I encourage anyone...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

A True Expert in his Field!

If you're like me you wouldn't trust your face with just anyone. Dr. Leong is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and a true master in his field! It has only been a few days post surgery but I can tell already I'm going to be very pleased with the results! If I ever need to have anything done down the road I definitely will be coming back.

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

Dr. Leong is AMAZING!

Dr. Leong is the coolest. He totally hooked me up with a now perfect under eye area. I had bad tear trough lines which he filled with Restylane 9 months ago and they still look amazing. He talked me through the whole thing and was great! It didn't hurt at all. He also recently filled my smile lines. I'm 35 and in the "filler" stage of life but when it comes to the "surgery" stage later on in...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - Pittsburgh, PA

I just had rhinoplasty/septoplasty done by Dr. Leong less than two weeks ago. The results already exceed my expectations. I am a 27 year old female who has always wanted my nose fixed cosmetically. I have been researching plastic surgeons in the Pittsburgh area for years but never able to commit to a doctor until meeting Dr. Leong. After going in for a consultation with Dr. Leong, I knew he...
