Review for Dr. Elizabeth Lee:
This is a review in praise of Dr. Elizabeth Lee.
I had wanted surgery for the bags under my eyes, as well as lip filler to counter act the thinning and signs of age which I was not ready to accept. My previous year had been trying, my face worse for the wear.
As I do not live in California, and was in for only a short stay, Dr. Lee suggested that I have filler along the cheekbone beneath my eye socket, and come back for the surgery when my schedule allowed.
A few moments in her chair, I emerged with ten years erased from my face. Dr. Lee explained that the volume loss along the cheekbone below the eye socket that occurs with age exacerbates the look of the sunken tear trough. Dr. Lee injected Radiesse, the result being a refreshed look, completely natural. In her skilled hands a syringe and filler restored my face to the one which felt again like my own.
Next came my lips. Having seen so many photographs of ungainly lip enhancements, I had been concerned that injectables were not easily controlled. How wrong I was. Dr. Lee works with the material with the eye of an artist and the hands surgeon, creating precisely the enhancement I had hoped for.
The skill of the surgeon is crucial, key.
Dr. Lee was extremely judicious in her use of the filler (Juvederm), renewing the plumpness time had stolen while keeping a look that is natural without the slightest hint of trout pout. I had requested a more three dimensional definition of the vermillion border, without distorting my cupid's bow, or creating an overly inflated artificial look. This is precisely what I got.
I have a tendency to faint during any medical procedure; Dr. Lee was extremely gentle and patient, guiding me through step by step, remaining sensitive to my response throughout.
As I move and travel frequently, I am still planning on going to Dr. Lee for surgery in the future, as I would prefer a solution which requires less upkeep than the injectable fillers.
If I lived near her practice in Berkeley, I would be in regularly, seeing what other miracles her skilled and practised hands could bestow upon my face and body!!!
I am delighted with her work, and recommend her unreservedly.
Cost of injectables- $650. per cc- worth every penny!!!!!
