Dr. Lee offers a comprehensive array of aesthetic and reconstructive breast procedures, ranging from breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction, to more specialized treatments such as top surgery for transgender clients and gynecomastia surgery for men. She is frequently sought out by both men and women for her skill as well as her compassion and discretion.
For patients who are seeking non-surgical breast enhancement, Dr. Lee offers several cutting-edge procedures such as décolletage collagen stimulation and nonsurgical breast therapies. These can be instrumental in helping you to achieve your aesthetic goals while avoiding the higher risks and longer downtimes associated with surgery.
Men and women of all ages are turning to cosmetic enhancements to help preserve and augment their natural beauty. As time goes by, the effects of aging and gravity can cause the skin to wrinkle and deflate.
Dr. Lee can soften the lines and replenish and restore the volume through both surgical and non-surgical means. We always strive to give you a natural, refreshed, and well-rested aesthetic.Learn More
If you suffer from painful, debilitating migraines, you may be excited to learn about surgical options that can help restore quality of life. Dr. Lee was personally trained by the founder of migraine surgery and authored numerous articles in leading plastic surgery journals on innovative migraine surgery techniques and outcomes.
Migraine surgery can help alleviate discomfort by isolating and removing migraine triggers. These triggers are commonly found around the forehead, the temples, inside the nose and the back of the head. As a side benefit of the surgery, the aesthetic appearance of some of these areas can also be improved.Learn More
Dr. Lee provides superior body sculpting results to contour, tone and sculpt the torso. These include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to reduce excess abdominal skin and tighten separated six pack muscles, liposuction to sculpt unwanted fat, and brachioplasty to contour the arms and remove extra skin. Dr. Lee also offers labiaplasty for women who wish to contour their privates.
We strive for results that appear effortless and blend seamlessly with your existing anatomy. Every client is approached as an individual; Dr. Lee will only suggest procedures that serve your aesthetic interests.
A certain kind of respect, trust and appreciation has to exist between us when working on such an intimate level. Together, we will create an amazing, timeless and stunning new you.
“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”
One of the causes close to Dr. Lee’s heart is Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. This is a San Diego-based nonprofit charity for children. The mission of the non-profit is to help children with deformities through reconstructive plastic surgery. Dr. Lee was first involved in the organization when she was in high school in San Diego. Together with other local artists, they put on multiple musical concerts to raise awareness and funds for the organization. We encourage you to learn more about this wonderful cause. www.FreshStart.orgLearn More
