5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

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

Pros- NO visible scars. Canthopexy prevents ectropion. Excess skin removal get rid of wrinkles & smooth out the hollow appearance. Fat reposition filled out the deep tear troughs. Absolutely No pain during or after procedures Cons- Temporary redness, swelling on face & eyes Outcome- More than thrilled! Now that I'm 17 days post-op, most of the swelling & bruising went away....

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

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

I'm 36 years old and I tend to invest a lot on myself. After I got the treatment done which was painful even with pain medicine that was given to me before the treatment but compared to Thermage, it was endurable. And there were some swelling which lasted for few days. There were also some discomfort during the treatment but with the results that I notice on myself, it surely was worth...

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

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

I'm 47 years old and decided to go with the surgery after numerous injections by different doctors. I only wanted brow lift but Dr. Lee recommended that I get lower bleph surgery so, I accepted his recommendation and decided do both surgery while I was at it.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Love the Result! - Los Angeles, CA

I broke my nose playing basketball about 10 years ago and have a very noticeable hump and most of all, long nose(I guess they call it a nose tip). So  Anyways, I finally got my surgery and it's now been about 6 months and I'm very satisfied with what I see in the mirror. I don't think I'll be playing basketball again because I don't want to pay another $4,000, instead I think I'll just be...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

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

I just had the procedures done yesterday. The morning started out w/ the nurse putting in my IV line. Then I was escorted to the operating room. I drifted out so I didn't feel any pain when he numbed & cut me. I can hear and sense every tugging but I didn't feel any pain. It took probably an hr w/ another hr in recovery. The implant they used is Hanson's style 5 ( SCH5-4) which is a large...

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...

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

It’s been 6 months to have a breast surgery. Now I’m satisfied with my surgery results. Of course, I was happy to have new breasts after surgery, but I had to suffer postoperative discomfort. I felt that a heavy stone was pressing on my chest. I felt pain on my shoulder, too. I’m 5.5 ft and weigh 104 pounds and skinny. After breast surgery, I felt uncomfortable, but finally got gorgeous...

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....
