When people ask Dr. Lily Lee why she chose plastic surgery as her profession, her reply is always the same: “I love the marriage of science and artistry!” Having had fellowship training in burn surgery, Dr. Lee has seen firsthand how someone’s physical appearance impacts their confidence. “Plastic surgery allows me to help people look and feel their best, and that is incredibly rewarding for me,” she says. “Having the experience in the operating room is crucial, but beyond that, I place a big emphasis on relationship-building with my patients, which is critical to how we conduct our practice,” she says. Creating a warm, welcoming environment where patients feel at ease is also of the utmost importance to the Lily Lee MD team. “One of our biggest differentiators is how we go out of our way to make our patients feel like they are part of a larger family,” adds the doctor. “We take great pride in the results we provide and in the confidence boosts we help give our patients. The gratitude we get in return is the very best part of what we do.”

A Minute With

  1. What is the most common medical myth you’ve ever heard?

    People think plastic surgery and
    cosmetic surgery are the same thing,
    when in fact, “cosmetic surgery”
    refers to something very general.
    I spend a lot of time explaining
    the rigors of an American Society
    of Plastic Surgeons certification
    and how important it is for a plastic
    surgeon to be board-certified by the
    American Board of Plastic Surgery

  2. What are your most requested procedures?

    Asian eyelid aesthetic surgeries,
    breast augmentations and
    tummy tucks

  3. How does your staff enhance your practice?

    My staff is a direct reflection of the
    care I believe each patient deserves,
    and they ensure our patients leave
    feeling welcomed and satisfied with
    their experience

  4. Describe your doctor-patient relationship dynamic.

    The most important element to how
    I relate with patients is keeping open
    communication at all times. There’s
    never a “one size fits all” solution in
    plastic surgery. Listening carefully
    to their needs and concerns is what
    enables me to bring about the best
    outcomes. I believe the aesthetic
    process should be a collaborative
    one where the patient feels like they
    can be honest with me, and where I
    can share with them my knowledge
    and expertise

  5. What i love most about my profession

    Being able to instill confidence
    in my patients and helping them
    completely change their outlook
    and how they see themselves is
    highly rewarding work

  6. How i would spend extra time in a day

    Chasing my family down
    a mountain on skis

  7. Three words that best describe me

    Honest, caring, meticulous

  8. What i’m best known for

    Eyes, ears, and breasts.
    I like doing things in pairs,
    I’m a nut for symmetry!

  9. My operating room playlist

    80’s pop, 90’s hip hop,
    and today’s country

  10. What are your 2020 resolutions?

    1. To ski faster and
    2. Do handstands
    without wall security.
    3. Do all of the above
    without injury!
