Romanelli Cosmetic

Meet Dr. John Layliev | Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery


My name is John Layliev and I'm a plastic surgeon specializing in aesthetic surgery of the face, breast, and body. I'm a native New Yorker, originally from Queens, with a background, family background, in music and arts. My parents were both prominent musicians and grew up with both my brother and sister aiming towards medical careers. My brother's a dentist, cosmetic dentist, and my sister is an OB/GYN physician, and that inspired me to go into the medical field. 

During my general surgery training, which I enjoyed thoroughly, I realized that I had a lot more interest in plastic surgery and that was my true calling because creating and sculpting and reconstructing, there was never a dull moment with that.

I want my patients to feel comfortable, less anxious, well educated, and understand the technical aspects of the surgery, recovery process and the risk and benefits.

The most rewarding aspect of plastic surgery for me is the immediate, dramatic difference that's attainable in the operating room during surgery.
