Breast Reconstruction

For the first time in nine years I was able to go swimsuit and bra shopping without tears. I feel like me again. I am able to look at myself and see my breast instead of just seeing the scars.

Neck Lift

Highly skilled doctor. Staff is wonderful. All very professional.

Face Lift

The results were amazing - far above expectations !

Breast Reconstruction

Great quality of care from hospital staff and Dr. Lee. The physical outcome is just how I imagined. My pain was minimal and did not require use of the prescribed pain medication.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Lee and his staff are extremely professional. He’s a perfectionist at his craft and just from a consult, I can tell he takes his work very seriously. I felt important and cared for during my consult. I’m looking forward to my surgery and know I will be in the best hands.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Lee was very knowledgeable about the pros and cons of the procedures I was pursuing. I didn't know whether I needed a brow-lift or eyelid surgery, so Dr. Lee took the time to examine and explain why eyelid surgery was the best option. I will be booking at the end of May/early June of 2021 so that I will have ample time to recover and get the financing ready.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Lee and the staff were friendly and made me feel welcome and comfortable during my appointment.


Dr. Lee took the time out to listen and hear you and gave great input, he seemed caring communication seemed good and they seemed very helpful.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Lee is very knowledgeable and has a great eye for aesthetics. He is very kind and makes you feel comfortable from the first visit through surgery and post op appointments. I was very pleased with his recommendation and the overall result. Tatum, his nurse, is also outstanding at communication even after surgery with multiple email exchanges. She is prompt and thorough.


Dr. Lee is always thorough and honest. I trust he will tell me exactly what it is I need and not placate me with the things I want.

Tummy Tuck

From my initial consultation, Dr. Lee made me feel so comfortable. He explained everything very well and spent a lot of time with us. This eased my mind as to if I was making the correct decision. And the surgery turned out fantastic! I love my results and finally like what I see when I look in the mirror. Highly recommend Dr. Lee. [Single best thing is...] My outcome and how wonderful Dr. Lee and his staff is.

Eyelid Surgery

I liked the 3D images. Dr. Lee was very thorough.

Tummy Tuck

Dr Lee is a perfectionist with an impeccable Artists eye. I trust him 100%, this is the 2nd surgery I have had with him over the last 4 years. Nurse Jody in my Go-To for anything related to my face tune-ups. I can not recommend the office enough. They are professional to the nth degree his entire surgical and Office staff are Amazing! 10 out of 10

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Lee was great! He was super patient and made me feel at ease. He went over different options with me and made me feel like I was the only patient even with my mom there as well. He took the time to explain and go over my options. I was quoted less at a different place but because of how much my mom has loved past surgeries with Dr. Lee and because of how he made me feel I know I’m in great hands.


Pre-op consultation was honest and supportive. Dr. Lee called me to consult on a possible pre-existing condition (a doctor actually called me - on the phone!!) and he listened to my preferences. The surgical center was professional, supportive and friendly. The results have been as expected!


My nose is much straighter than it was before. The airways are much more open allowing me to breathe better than I could before the surgery. My nose is also much more symmetrical than it was before surgery.

Breast Reconstruction

[Single best thing is...] The warmth and caring of Dr. Lee and his entire staff. The true caring and concern for my well being by Dr. Lee and his entire staff. The excellent artistic results. And the whole experience was just wonderful. I would never consider seeking and plastic or cosmetic procedure from anywhere else!

Breast Implant Revision

Doctor Lee LISTENED to me and encouraged a conversation that went both ways. I am so happy with my revision! I no longer have daily pain. My breast fit my frame. No more saggy skin or ripples! He is so wonderful and his staff is well trained and patient. Fabulous experience.

Breast Implant Removal

They didn't rush, explained things in great detail, answered all my questions.

Fat Transfer

I thought the consultation went very well. Dr. Lee was very empathetic to my concerns. I was told he had openings in late Jan/February for surgery during the consult by the coordinator. When I reached to her the following day she said he was booked until April. I asked her to please let me know if I could get in sooner and never received a response. I understand Dr. Lee is busy but a follow up wouldve been nice.
