A reputation built on trust. Perpetuated from patient to patient

His surgical expertise is in cosmetic surgery of the face and eyes; cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast; liposuction and body contouring; and non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

“I treat my patients with care and compassion as though they are family. Beautiful, natural transformations are a given but making them feel safe and in the best hands is equally essential.”

A plastic surgeon with impeccable credentials and surgical mastery

Dr. Leipziger is Chief of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) and Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC).
