5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant
After a lifetime of being self conscious about my recessed chin and profile I set out to find a great plastic surgeon for a chin augmentation. I came to Dr Lee after hearing he was voted the best cosmetic surgeon in Orange County in 2016 by OC Weekly. I met with Dr Lee and his staff at his Newport Beach location and felt very confident I had found the right place to have my chin aug. The...

I have wanted to have my eyes done for as long as I could remember. I have tried Thermage on my eyes, which did almost nothing for me. I waited so long because the thought of someone operating on my eyes made me uneasy. I had decided to interview several surgeons. Dr. Raymond Lee was the second surgeon I interviewed, and he was my last interview. He has a warm, caring bedside manner. He...
5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
I met Dr. Lee seven years ago, about a year after I became a military widow. My husband had been injured in military combat and I cared for him for almost a year before he died. The trauma should very plainly on my face and it looked like I had aged almost a decade. My self-confidence was shot along with my face. Dr. Lee was very kind and gentle, and listened to my story with sympathy and...

Let me start by saying that I am a blue collar type guy. Never thought I would consider much less go thru with Plastic surgery. From the minute I walked into Dr Lee's office I felt welcomed and comfortable. The staff was top notch, organized and friendly. My consult with Dr Lee was smooth and easy. He answered all my questions to my satisfaction. He gave me references to contact (which I did...
5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant
I've always had a complex about my chin. I hated taking pictures from a profile view, I hated looking down because my neck and chin would connect, everything about my chin I absolutely despised. I had always wanted a chin implant, but didn't want just anyone to be my surgeon. It had been seven months of research and consultations and I still hadn't found the perfect surgeon. I was ready to...
5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift
I was referred to Dr. Lee and had my initial consultation. He was friendly, professional and very informative. He recommended a mini lift (I also opted for CO2 laser treatment and pinning of my ears). He was confident in the outcome that I would have and went over all of the possible side effects. He gave me realistic expectations of how I would look after the procedure and for that I am grateful. I tend to have a lot of anxiety when it comes to any sort of medical treatment. Dr. Lee put my fears at ease and made me feel so comfortable. I was able to trust in him and that helped me to get over my fear. It was never a pressure situation and he even told me to go home and think about it before making my appointment to move forward with the procedure. The downtime for the procedure was only one week and I have received tremendous follow up care. He has even pushed me through those fears to be able to get Botox, I used to be very afraid of needles, so this is a huge victory for me. The outcome that I received goes way beyond my initial expectations and I have several people asking to be referred to him on the daily. Dr. Lee is an amazingly kind, talented surgeon who I will recommend to friends and family anytime. He has changed my life!
5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
Dr. Raymond Lee is a fabulous facial surgeon, he made me look at least 10 years younger and also look very natural... I am very happy with my lower face left result and very much appreciate his excellent work! His staff are great as well... The first time I met Dr. Lee was 6 years ago when I was 50. After a free consultation, Dr. Lee suggested that I should wait for a few years as I looked too young to do the procedure... I left his office with a high respect and a great impression of Dr. Lee... He is very honest and patient. He puts his patient's best interest first, not his pocket... 6 years later I went back to Dr. Lee and had the procedure done less than 3 months ago. I am so happy with the excellent result, I love my young and natural looking... Thank you very much Dr. Lee !!!

Dr. Lee is very personable and understanding to what women are looking for- yet realistic in what he can do. He is a true artist- It may seem easy to just tighten a face, but when I reviewed on line all the various possible nightmares that could occur I was a little fearful, but after doing my research on Dr. Lee I was not the least bit worried, even the morning of the procedure. A few days after the procedure I was concerned about the swelling of just one funny looking stitch, wanting to make sure it was normal and not going to cause a scar- I called the office in the morning and they squeezed me right in- It of course was normal but I was so happy to have my fear relieved quickly.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Plastic Surgery
I went to see Dr Lee shortly after the Thanksgiving Holiday in 2016. At almost 55 I found myself with a "tired" look on my face every morning no matter how rested I was. My consultation with Dr Lee was fantastic. He listened to what my specific concerns were. He watched closely as I showed him where these areas were on my face. Together we talked about what the best treatment options were for...
