5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Facial Burn - Needed to Close Mouth So Teeth Didnt Show - San Francisco, CA

Dr Lee is awesome - always spends time with me and takes any questions seriously. His staff is excellent as well. They make sure I am comfortable and understand what is going on.

5 out of 5 stars Asian Eyelid Surgery

Flawless Double Eyelids - San Francisco, CA

Wonderful. Dr. Lee has the steadiest hands ever. And a great eye for symmetry and creating natural beauty. He goes for the natural look. Bedside manner very warm and nice. The guy's cool and his results are fantastic. My eyelids healed flawlessly and evenly. I look good and people tell me I look better but they can't tell what I've had done. Which is the BEST result you want. Naturally beautiful. If you want Asian double eyelid surgery, I don't think there's anyone better. Dr. Lee knows how to do it right and he does it well. He takes his time too. And healing in SF is good because the weather is never too hot. I had my surgery in August and SF is nice and breezy for bringing down swelling. Better than L.A. in my opinion.

Dr. Lee is a True Professional.

I have been searching for a good plastic surgeon in San Francisco who knows about Asian eyes. Dr. Lee did an amazing job on my eyes! He listened patiently to all of my concerns and made me feel comfortable about something I had been thinking about (and was scared!) for a long time. He came highly recommended and I would recommend him to others who have had similar concerns. Dr. Lee is a...

Dr. Lee was professional and understood exactly what I was looking for. If I ever have another surgery I will go to him without a doubt.

5 out of 5 stars MACS Facelift

Skillful, professional and caring

A very close friend recommended Dr. Lee. I was nervous about facial surgery, but his reputation, high level of knowledge and skill, kind manner, and his kind and supportive staff added greatly to my comfort. There was less discomfort after the procedures than I would have expected, and I am truly thrilled with the results. Thank you Dr. Lee and staff!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

The BOTOX experience you're looking for!

If you're looking for the right place to get Botox, L Plastic Surgery is the one! I had been interested in getting Botox for quite some time bc all my friends were getting it for preventative care. What motivated me to finally go was when a girlfriend pointed out the frown lines between my eyebrows that were inevitably going to blossom bc of how animated I am. I decided to see Dr. Lee bc he...

5 out of 5 stars Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asian eyelid surgery

Dr. Lee is the best and knows what he is doing. I am a 27 year old Asian female who wanted to get the Asian eyelid procedure done. I found Dr. Lee on google and checked out his website. I called his office for a consultation which was COMPLIMENTARTY (most drs offices I’ve looked into was charging a consult fee). The staff was very nice and scheduled me an appointment. I came in for my c...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Dr. Lee is THE best!

I came in to see Dr. Lee for a consultation today for Botox and I must mention that this is my first encounter with a plastic surgeon, which made me very nervous. From my initial call to make an appointment, to coming into the office and meeting Dr. Lee and getting the treatment, he and his staff made me feel very comfortable. After my consultation, I felt extremely confident that Dr. Lee is...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Breast cancer survivor

I am a breast cancer survivor who had reconstructive surgery with Dr. Lee a few years ago. I had to come back into his office for a few follow up visits, so I really got to know Dr. Lee and his staff. He is always welcoming and made me feel safe and assured. His reconstructive work was impressive to say the least. I was so happy with his work that I came back this year to have a mini facelift,...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Amazing experience

I am in my late twenties and started noticing wrinkles of my forehead. To prevent deeper wrinkles, I wanted to get Botox as a preventative. I came in to see Dr Lee, and straight away I was greeted by his wonderful nice staff. Dr Lee himself was very kind and knowledgeable. He was so patient and kind to me every step of the procedure, answered all of the many questions I had. Overall I had such...
