5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Outstanding Dr. for a Lower Bleph /eye Bag Treatment Without the Big Cost

I gave Dr. Peter Lee 5 stars all around because I only care about the OUTCOME not so much about his staff or anything else. He is an expert in doing the lower bleph surgery. At first I wasn't sure since he is not an Oculoplastic surgeon, just a plastic surgeon. But I chose him because he teaches other doctors on how to do this surgery so I know he is very competent. Other reasons are because he believe in a natural & conservative approach. I love my eyes & just wanted to look younger, not different. At first I wasn't sure I wanted to have canthopexy or excess skin removed since I worried about having ectropion & visisble scars. I just wanted transconjuntival surgery because I know the scars are hidden & it is fairly safe. But he assured the scars are barely visible when we do the canthopexy & skin removal. He was absolutely right. His canthopexy incisions are within the natural fold of my upper lid. It is not over-extended above or beyond. The lower eyelid incision are very clean cut & hit right on the bottom lashes. On top of that, the cost is extremely reasonable considering it's a three surgeries in one. For the month of Sept, he even have extra 20% off. In sum, it was a very positive experience for me.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

I Notice the Difference After 2 Months...- Los Angeles, CA

I found Dr. Lee after some extensive research online. I've found out about Ultherapy online as I've done Thermage a couple times before and I was looking for something new & more up-to-date laser treatment which I found out later that Ultherapy is based on Ultrasound. So I searched nearby and called few Ultherapy practices. It seemed like there were many practices that perform Ulthereapy treatments in LA area but I noticed that Wave Plastic Surgery has the most experience and done most Ultherapy treatments than any other places which I found through Dr. Lee's and Ultherapy website. So I made an appointment and had a consultation with one of Dr. Lee's consultants within the same day. I had 3 days until the treatment and I was well informed by the consultant about results and after-care.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Endoscopic Brow Lift & Lower Eyelid Surgery - Los Angeles, CA

At first, I wasn't sure which plastic surgeon I should go with. I chose Dr. Lee after I had my initial consultation with the doctor and his recognition in Endoscopic lifting industry. I'd recommend to people to carefully choose your surgeon after doing some serious research on both online and offline. I'm very satisified with the result and couldn't be any happier.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Love the Result! - Los Angeles, CA

I was referred by my friend's wife and did online research/visited his practice. I've been considering a Rhinoplasty for few years now and done some extensive research both offline and online and found a local plastic surgeon. I also asked my facebook friends for their suggestions and actually went to few local plastic surgery practices for the consultation. I ended up choosing Wave because of the credentials that I saw and their modern facility. So, I had my consultation once with Dr. Lee and once with Dr. Shifren because I wanted to hear their both of their opinions.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Thank You, Michelle and Dr. Lee - Los Angeles, CA

Naturally, I was nervous. However, Michelle was very considerate and professional. I felt like she really cared for me. I decided to go for the process thanks to her! I was very satisfied with all the staffs during the process and the result. Thank you, Michelle and Wave!!!

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

No Wings Anatomic Chin Implant & Smart Lipo Triplex @ Sub-mental & Jawline Areas - Los Angeles, CA

Excellent highly skilled Doctor. He's honest & wouldn't sacrifice patient's pain & problems for money. I respected him for this. This is my second procedures with him. I couldn't be any happier.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Completely Satisfied with Coolsculpting on my Abdomen and Flanks -Los Angeles, CA

I've had two coolsculpting treatments on my abdomen and flanks and I'm loving it. Dr. Lee and their staff also gave me a free injection called IST, and they call it fat melting injection and it seems that IST maximized(according to the staff) the result after the coolsculpting treatments. I will definitely recommend coolsculpting to my sister and friends. I'm planning to get another IST...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Surgery, 35yrs, 2 Children, 300cc, Allergan Texture Implant, Very Satisfied - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Peter Lee is a plastic surgeon who has lots of experience. He really performed surgery well. He is really trustworthy.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift & Lower Bleph. - Los Angeles, CA

Honestly, I was scared and hesitant to get facelift surgery & lower bleph. but I'm extremely satisfied with the result. I've had two consultations with consultants & Dr. Lee before the surgery and Dr. Lee advised me that I should get lower bleph. along with facelift surgery because I have some serious puffy eyes and facelift surgery wouldn't do the trick for my puffy eyes and dark circles....
