With a practice based on the key values of integrity, professionalism and compassion, he is committed to providing the highest level of care to the women, men, teenagers and children he treats. Patients benefit from his technical skill, his meticulous attention to detail, and his concept of plastic surgery as both a science and an art.

During the consultation, Dr. Leipziger will listen carefully to a patient's motivations and desires, and he will discuss the options.

The doctor/patient relationship is very important. Dr. Leipziger believes that the best candidates for cosmetic surgery are educated patients who have realistic expectations. It’s important for people to understand what they can expect right before, during and after a procedure, and they should feel comfortable with their physician. Dr. Leipziger seeks to educate patients so they can make an informed decision.
