John L. LeRoy, M.D., FACS practicing out of Atlanta, Georgia, is a double board certified plastic surgeon. He is best known for the exceptional work he performs in the areas of breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and facelift surgery. In addition, he has performed some of the most innovative work in mini face lift surgery by creating his own “Band Aid” technique to provide patients with a less invasive facelift option that is performed in-office with gentle numbing. Due to the praise the Band Aid Facelift has gained from his patients who have undergone the procedure, Dr. LeRoy extended his menu of minimally invasive plastic surgery options to offer Band Aid versions of brow lift, blepharoplasty, laser skin resurfacing, liposuction, and tummy tuck.

Dr. LeRoy shares the details of why he decided to become a plastic surgeon.
