5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

33 Years Old, Female, Mom of Twins - Bellevue, WA

Dr Leff is amazing, very kind and caring. He takes his time to answer all questions and I've never felt rushed. He even asked me to come in to the office on his day off to check out some minor (and normal!) bleeding that I was worried about! Am very happy with my tummy tuck results. Front desk and nurses are all very frniendly and accommodating as well. I can highly recommend Dr Leff and his practice and will definitely return for future procedures. He is absolutely the best!

It's So Great to Look As Good As I Feel! Bellevue, WA

I've had several procedures with Dr. Leff over the past three decades. Although I was only able to select one procedure (facelift) in the field above, I also have had an eye lift, FX laser, a brow lift, and replacement of my breast implants. Over the years, he has been consistently kind, patient, and forthcoming about expectations and desired results. I trust him explicitly. And....he does...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Lips Plumped Many of Times Here! - Bellevue, WA

I see Barbette Fremmerlid, the R.N. for Dr. Michael Leff, Overlake Plastic Surgeons, for my lip injections. What I love most about Barbette is she is a patient perfectionist. She believes in starting conservative and slowly building up to desired results. WIth lips you can always add, but you can't take away. I only inject half the syringe at a time. Dr. Leff's office stores the...

Dr. Leff is absolutely the best! I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking about having a breast reduction. The results have been amazing and the care even better!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Excellent Breast Augmentation Experience - Bellevue, WA

Although this was a very private procedure, I feel compelled to share a review about Dr.Leff and his staff at Overlake Plastic surgeons because of the extraordinary service and care I received during my surgery and post operation appointments. Dr.Leff has been in practice for many, many years which has allowed him to perfect a comforting bedside manner. He takes time to know each client personally and make them feel comfortable. He is an impeccable listener and works to please each client’s specific needs. The atmosphere at the Overlake Plastic Surgeon’s office is very peaceful, bright, and friendly. I was immediately put at ease from the fresh flowers to the tremendously warm desk staff and nurses. I did not feel as if I was in a surgery office at all! I felt completely confident in the capable hands of Doctor Leff because he was careful to explain all of my options and talk over my procedure to put me at ease. Most importantly, the results from my procedure are immaculate. I would not go back and change a single thing. Years of experience have made it easy for this doctor to provide a very natural touch to his work. The doctor and staff also provided everything I needed in my aftercare in such an efficient manner, it made my recovery quick and easy. The staff was even very gracious in scheduling to work around my hectic schedule; even coming in on days they usually are not in office, to make sure I received the best care. I never had to wait for my appointments, as they generously work to make each appointment private and on time. The staff was courteous and friendly. I am very happy with my results, and I highly recommend Dr.Leff from Overlake Plastic Surgeons for any of your enhancement or reconstructive needs. I am sure your experience will be as excellent as mine!
