Body By Leverett
Understanding patients' apprehension when visiting a doctor, veteran Dr. Larry C. Leverett has designed every aspect of his plastic-surgery practice to put them at ease. Dr. Leverett opened his office 21 years ago among the Ahwatukee foothills and has been voted one of the Valley’s Top Docs by Phoenix Magazine. A team of skilled medical professionals provide patients with cosmetics treatments, procedures, services, and products. Appointments start with a thorough evaluation while building a relationship with patients through education. Candles, stylized statues, and colorful flowers adorn the marble surface of the office’s front desk, where the friendly staff greets patients.
Inside the education room, patients can flip through brochures or watch video screenings of cosmetic procedures to help them make informed decisions. Should they opt for surgical enhancements such as face-lifts, tummy tucks, or liposuction, the doctor further quells fears by explaining every step of the procedure and recovery process. In addition to the plastic surgery practive, Body By Leverett is a full service medical spa. They offer medical grade skin care products, skin and laser treatments with their master aesthetician, injectables and liquid facelifts with their expert injector, B12 complex injections, and HCG Weight Loss Program.
