Why Choose an Oculoplastic Surgeon?
Oculoplastic surgeons receive full ophthalmology training first, then go on to receive two years of additional training in eyelid, eye socket, and lacrimal surgery.
Two year fellowships accredited by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are among the most coveted and competitive in the country, as only about 25 positions are available yearly.
Because they are trained to care for both eyelids and eyeballs, oculoplastic surgeons are uniquely capable of managing any complications of eyelid surgery. Indeed, when eyelid surgeries go wrong, patients will eventually be sent to an oculoplastic surgeon.
While several types of surgeons can perform cosmetic eyelid surgery, including general plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, general ophthalmologists, and even dermatologists, no one has the same expertise with eyelids as oculoplastic surgeons.
By choosing an oculoplastic surgeon for your eyelid surgery, you are choosing a true eyelid expert.
Dr. Lee is an amazing surgeon and extremely professional. I was so self-conscious about my eyelids. They were severely retracted and giving me a constant wide eyed look. Dr. Lee corrected this issue and honestly I feel like a new person and look younger too! (Lid Retraction repair)

Before, people would always ask me if I was tired or if I had cried because of the puffiness around my eyes. Now, people just ask me what I have done that I look so fresh, but they do not notice that I had surgery!! –E.D.
It is both a privilege and a pleasure to recommend Dr. Lee to anyone considering eye lid surgery.

I would recommend Dr. Lee without reservation. My surgery was a complete success and the results were excellent. He is professionally skilled and cares about his patients. – J.G. (Unilateral Ptosis)
As a first time patient, certainly concerned about the before and after effects, I can say that Dr. Lee took the time to discuss on several occasions the details of the procedure he was expected to undertake. He spoke of all the particulars that would make the intervention safe and rewarding. But the most important part of Dr. Lee’s interventionis not about what he said, but about what he didn’t say. It was about the patience he needed to deal with a person like me and about the kindness that is necessary to make such a procedure a success. It is about what makes the difference between a doctor and a person that besides being a great doctor understands and cares for people’s thoughts and concerns. I would not hesitate to use Dr. Lee at any time in the future. -A.S. (Asian Blepharoplasty)
