Eyelid Surgery

Expert surgeon. Kind, knowledgeable staff. Amazing experience.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Lee and associated staff were incredibly kind, patient, and were descriptive about what any potential procedures would involve. I appreciated their time immensely.

Face Lift

Doctor was very professional and friendly. Spent a lot of time with me.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Lee took the time to listen to what I disliked about my reconstruction and what I would like to have done. He was very informative as to what I should expect and explained what he would do and why.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Explanation of procedures, kind, thorough, respectful, gentle, post-procedure instructions.

Eyelid Surgery

Very friendly and listened to my concerns.

Injectable Fillers

Love dr Lee! He's so comforting and great at what he does! Very gentle for people with no pain tolerance.

Breast Lift

I have been a patient of Dr. Lee since 1995. He has performed several different procedures: breast aug, tummy tuck, eye surgery, lipo. There is no one better than Dr. Lee. His knowledge, skill, bedside manner is beyond compare!

Eyelid Surgery

I have a lot of recommendations for Dr. Lee and everyone I've seen looks fabulous. I also like how he was able to determine exactly what would be best for me on our consultation.


Great communication and bedside manner by Dr. Lee! Appreciate the collaborative dialogue and various treatment options. Dr. Lee and his staff were highly competent. Great attention to detail and close follow-up. Great responsiveness when needed to call on weekend day after surgery for urinary retention issue. Coverage by Dr. Rossi was also excellent. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Lee's loving, competent care and the excellent outcome.

Breast Lift

No surprises I was told exactly what my procedure was going to be like and the down time. I am extremely happy with the outcome. It's a slow recovery due to the procedure and healing, but the doctor and staff are right there with any problems or questions that I need to ask.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Lee and his staff were knowledgeable and friendly and the office space was clean and welcoming. Dr. Lee answered all of my questions and helped me get comfortable and excited about this procedure. I look forward to my surgery and feel that I am in the best hands.

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.
