    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts.

Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

A medically informed patient

Dr. Lee thrombosed or occluded my lymphatic drainage to the region around my liver although I had reported a diagnosis of hepatitis C, when I suffered a post-op intra-abdominal hematoma and interrupted his golf game. As a result, I have developed seroma which have caused stretch marks that I never had as result of my two pregnancies. I had a subsequent abdominoplasty which was better with another surgeon but still the seroma have resulted in suboptimal results. I asked Dr. Lee just for a c-section scar revision. I did not require an abdominoplasty as I had no speech marks and a flat stomach at least until he butchered me.

Breast Augmentation

During my initial consultation with Dr. Lee, he put me at ease right away with his patient, calm and gentle bedside manner. He listened carefully to my concerns and what I hoped to achieve; I felt confident in his knowledge, experience and skill as a PS right away. He provided very clear, honest and detailed information about what I could realistically expect for my outcome (I had implants in the past and was explanted years ago, leaving very thin tissue). I am now a few months post-op and I couldn't be happier with the results. They are exactly what I wanted, if not better! I would highly recommend Dr. Lee ~

panniculectomy/breast reduction

This was the best thing I've ever done for myself. After having lost a lot of weight, I was left with a lot of saggy skin & saggy breasts. Dr. Gilbert Lee is the best plastic surgeon ever! 2 of my other doctors actually told me to go see him that I would not be disappointed & they were right - I could not be happier. He has a friendly staff who is always ready to answer any & all questions - would not go any place else.
