Facial Reconstructive Surgery

The consultation was all highly professional. Also Dr. Lee's schedule was fully booked but they managed to get me in for surgery on short notice.

Face Lift

Dr Lee, Lydia and Heather showed the up most professionalism and attention to detail. They never hesitated answering my questions and considering my concerns about the process with the utmost care. Thank you Team your [location] friend

Breast Augmentation

Its given me back the confidence I lost after breastfeeding. I love getting ready and dressed now! I felt very well taken care of during my surgery. I love the outcome and follow up care. I’m extremely please with Dr Lee and his work.

Breast Reconstruction

Everyone was exceptional - from answering questions about the surgery itself (to include the staff at Changes and the staff at the Hospital) and the doctor who patiently answered questions and reassured me that everything was fine.

Face Lift

Doctor showed great interest in me and my procedure; showed he was both knowledgeable and creative, and that he enjoyed his work. He provided me with what I felt was a reasonable price.

It give me my confidence and make me feel beautiful. I had a wonderful experience, excellent care. The outcome is beyond my expectation.

Facial Reconstructive Surgery

All the staff as well as Dr. Lee were sincere and truly listened to what my needs were. Dr. Lee was kind respectful and professional. I love the before and after photos. Dr. Lee used the computer to show how each procedure improved my look. That program easily made my decision to proceed.

Eyelid Surgery

Staff and Surgeon communications and availability to answer questions and spend time with me.

Tummy Tuck

The Dr. And staff we're very knowledgeable and took their time with me.

Tummy Tuck

Loving care throughout... Received the body I always dreamed of

Face Lift

very professional-very skilled top rated doctor-

Eyelid Surgery

I was very impressed with Dr Lee and Lydia.After I made my surgery appt (for Sept) I did get the consent notices in an email from Megan to read over before i come to the office.Prior to that the only emails I received from the office were advertisements for different procedures. It's a good thing I opened Megan's email as it did not indicate anywhere that it was from the CHANGES office.

Breast Reduction

DR Lee is extremely thorough with his assessment of your needs. He takes time to listen to his patients and explains how he will achieve the desired outcome. His calm demeanor, skill and experience help put you at ease. I am really happy with the outcome of my surgery and would highly recommend Dr. Lee and his staff. He is a true artist. I met with 3 other surgeons before deciding on Dr. Lee and know I made the correct decision.

Breast Reconstruction

My surgery was breast reconstruction after cance and I am extremely satisfied with the results. Dr. Lee pays attention to detail, has the best technique and is very caring. I received excellent care at Sharp Mary Birch and had a very positive experience overall.

Tummy Tuck

Dr Lee removed a lot of loose skin and fat from my stomach. He removed old breast implants and replaced them with new ones. My body looks so much better than it did pre-surgery.

Rhinoplasty

I was highly satisfied with my experience. All my worries were confronted and put at ease and all of my questions were answered. Everybody was so nice, caring, and understanding. You could tell that the surgeon was experienced, knowledgeable, and knew exactly what he was doing.

Breast Augmentation

I was concerned about replacing my implant replacement surgery because I didn't want to look different. However, Dr. Lee did an amazing job making me look exactly as I did before (but better) and with a MUCH better looking scar. I am very glad that I had my surgery with Dr. Lee.

Face Lift

The patient coordinator gave me lots of stress. I gave her benefit of the doubt twice. Yet she consistently failed to provide me with important info. she said she would provide or that I asked her to provide, then she proceeded not do it 100% of the time. Since I have a very tight timeline between consultation and surgery, there are forms and health tests I need to submit to the office else I can't proceed with the surgery and if I miss the deadline, I will forfeit the surgery fee etc.. I requested Dr. Lee to assign another patient coordinator to me, but the one I am not satisfied with kept calling me. Again, I asked her to email me the before surgery pictures she took of me; she said she would, then again, she did not. If not because I really want Dr. Lee to be my surgeon, I would have walked away and looked for another surgeon.

Eyelid Surgery

Very professional, kind and non-judgmental.

Fat Transfer

Everyone was very informative and friendly
