I just went in for a rhinoplasty revision with Dr. Lee. The whole experience was great! I've been to quite a few offices, including overseas, and I just have to say this one is the best. All the nurses were attentive and very caring. They talked me through everything and made sure I knew I was in good hands. I had to reschedule my surgery date one too many times but they were so understanding and fair about the situation, I am very pleased at how they handled it. Sasha, the patient coordinator, was always quick with responding to my emails and phone calls. Oanh, was my nurse and she was seriously perfect. She was nice and very careful the whole through my surgery. Though its only been a day but I already can see a good amount of difference from my previous nose. I can't wait to take my cast off to see the final result soon! Thank you everyone at Enhance Medical. I couldn't have asked for a better team.

Excited and Happy - Beverly Hills, CA - I got a rhinoplasty and fat removal from under my eyes for the dark circle. It's only been two weeks, there is still a little bruising since my eyes are so sensitive but so far I am extremely happy with the result. Dr. Charles Lee and his staffs have exceed my expectation. He is caring and he follow up with me couple of time in just one week after my surgery. I can tell that he really love his job. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Satisfied with the Outcome. Redondo Beach, CA - Dr lee is number one for sure. His staff is so nice and caring. I am five days after my surgery and so far I love my results. I would recommend dr Lee to everyone I know because I could not find the dr i trust. I was told about dr Lee from a friend and she. Looks amazingly beautiful. I would tell anyone that, what you pay for is what you get. I know some people pay much much cheaper from what i pay for rhinoplasty but trust me you will not regret for whatever you spend with Dr Lee. Thank you Dr Lee so much for a little enhancement!

Asian Rhinoplasty and Jaw Line Reduction - Beverly Hills, CA - I went for a consultation on the 16th to see Dr. Lee. He knew what I wanted and I didn't want anything extreme but something that can improve me for the better. I did a CBC the same day, they were just a couple floors away from each other. I'm booked for 11/30! I'm nervous and getting everything ready for surgery now. There's a list of things I will need prior to surgery. Pray for me! Thanks!

Dr. Lee is a very knowlegdeable physician! He genuinely is an excellent doctor who knows what the right type of procedure to enhance people's concerns. He's also very realistic; doesn't set false expectations which is nice in the long run. He did a rhinoplasty and buccal fat removal (results were great)!

I'm surprised with some of Dr. Lee's negative reviews. Especially the ones complaining he?s too rushed because he has too many patients. A doctor?s high demand is a good thing. It indicates quality and experience. Anyways, I went to Dr. Lee because my L-shaped silicone implant from a previous surgery started extruding. My appointment and surgery went smoothly. He and his staff were efficient, attentive, and accommodating. The surgery only took 3-4 hours. I was actually too busy to go back for a follow-up appointment, but I almost did because they were so insistent on making sure everything went as planned. Although I?m still in the process of healing, I am EXTREMELY impressed with the results. My nose has improved enormously, and I can tell it will only get better. I'm really glad I went to Dr. Lee, and I highly recommend him for Asian rhinoplasty. (***FYI I copied and pasted my review from another website... too lazy to write a new one!***)

Best place to go if you're 1. Asian 2. Looking to improve anything related toyour face. Dr Lee is double board certified in not only plastic surgery, but head & neck surgery as well making him an expert in facial cosmetic work. He is BUSY, so expect to-the-point consults/appts. Dr Lee's coordinator Sasha was very accommodating to my changing schedule & had an overall pleasant demeanor. High-Volume Procedures Dr Lee does: Asian double eyelid, Asian rhinoplasty, Botox in jawline. V-line surgery.

Dr. Lee did another procedure on my wife and she is very happy. After the last procedure I was hoping that she would be satisfied, but somehow she keeps finding new things to fix. She is very satisfied with her nose now. I really thought that Dr. Lee's aesthetic take on how something that is actually too perfect does not look natural or human - and what result you want is something that is perceived by the human mind as ideal and that is not the same as rigidly perfect - was really thoughtful. He has really thought through about human beauty. It kind of follows through with the philosophy of Lao Tze about beauty and humanity being in imperfection. I have no idea if he is into that, but I think that must be in there somewhere. Now I have to go tell my wife she looks perfect so that I can stop giving him my money.

Dr Charles Lee is by far the best when it comes to pretty much everything. I came to him to fix my acne scars and random scars all over my body. His lasers and peels always give me flawless skin! He's also an artist when it comes to fixing surgeries gone bad. He fixed my indent on my nose which was from a failed surgery years ago. I would definitely come back to him for future work if needed.

Dr. Lee is a god sent gift! I wish I could give more than 5 stars! He has the most amazing talent and super nice and professional Staff. He pays attention to detail and is just outstanding as a surgeon. He is very honest and knowledgable. His staff are super caring and amazing. I had him as my surgeon for my rhinoplasty and I couldn't be happier. Byuora, Anna and Felicia were amazing, they followed up with me everyday after my surgery to make sure everything was perfect. They took care of me very well. Dr. Lee really cares about his patients. After 5 years of searching for a very good surgeon i finally found Dr. Lee and im glad i did. He listens to his patients and really cares about what they want. My surgery went so smooth. Him and his staff were on top of everything from day one. Thank you so much for not only being so awesome, but for giving me such an amazing natural looking nose.

Asian Rhinoplasty - Ear Cartilage Graft/fascia and Incisional Upper Blepheroplasty - Very experienced with Asian faces, particularly the nose and eyes/midface. His esthestics agree with mine for the most part, and although he suggests procedures he does not push them. During initial consultation, we agreed on everything, except Dr. Lee suggested raising the bridge between my eyes. I originally did not think I needed this, so we compromised by agreeing on a "conservative" change to the bridge. I asked Dr. Lee to push it only 60% if 100% is the max he can take the bridge height to. This translates to Dr. Lee taking a more conservative approach than perhaps other patients, although his skills surgically can, he won't. This is also because my natural nose is not exactly center on my face, and this cannot be fully corrected with surgery. Hence, since my "starting baseline" is not perfect, Dr. Lee was experienced enough to suggest taking a conservative approach because the "error rate," as he stated, is higher the higher you push your bridge beyond is natural shape. This is true even for the most experienced and perfectionist surgeons. Aside from genetics or God, the more you deviate or change from your natural looks, the riskier it is. Overall, Dr. Lee is very good at noticing what you need, and suggesting things that you do not need. He almost perfectly customized my procedures to fit my face. My only slight complaint is perhaps I should have told him to go even MORE conservative on the nose bridge. It looks great and very straight now, but makes me look a little too different from myself. Although please keep in mind that I am SUPER-natural gal and wanted changes so subtle that my family members won't even notice. So it may just be my personal aesthestics being overly conservative. Additionally it is 8 days post-op, and though I am loving the results, it is taking some getting used to. I am just scared that I will lose my "character" in my face, and turn out looking like a Korean Soap Star with homogenized features instead of my silly old self.
Review from H.Y. - Source: Yelp - Jul 17, 2017
I recommend Dr lee if you are looking to enhance your features while still looking natural. He did a very nice job on my nose, I use to have a wide nose, and dr Lee managed to make it look smaller by building up my nose tip. To my surprise, there was no bruising after the surgery and I healed fairly quickly.Sadly I have decided to have a revision surgery because although my nose is looking a lot better then before, i feel that the "wing" of my nose is a little too big and is causing my nose to look wide. The bridge is also not high enough for my liking.To be fair, I remember dr lee recommending me to have it reduced but as I was scared of scaring, I refused the idea. The only complaint I have with my experience is that the consultation was very brief, I wish dr lee had took more time communicating with me.I will be scheduling an revision surgery soon and will update the review after it is done.

Best Asian rhinoplasty surgeon!!! - I had an Asian rhinoplasty using rib cartilage with Dr.Charles Lee in November 2017. I am writing this review 15 days post surgery and I am EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!!! Dr.Lee is absolutely the "go to" surgeon for Asian rhinoplasty. I did so much research and was confident that I selected the right doctor after many consults. I model, so it was crucial to me to have my surgeon enhance what I was...

You wrote a review for Enhance Medical Center - Charles S. Lee, MD One minute ago 5.0 star rating 12/18/2018 i am writing a very long review because doctor Lee deserve it. I just had my splinter and stitch removed today. nose is a little bit swelling but the shape is so nice. It has reached beyond my expectation. I look even nicer from side. It is my third time nose surgery and i feel so lucky to find the right doctor. I had my previous surgeries done in two different countries and both ended up not good. )When i was looking for doctor here in states, i found doctor Lee's before and after pictures. There are not many of them online, but every one of the them keeps their identity and feature but still looks nice. I can tell from these pictures that this doctor really takes care of what he is doing. I do see some other doctors with so many pictures, but after over and over checking these pictures, i found the nose looks almost same. Only doctor lee's before and after pictures make me feel like he really puts time in patience instead of rushing it. That's how i decide to go to Doctor Lee. Then, i have a face time talk for free with doctor lee. He showed me picture of what i will look like after some changes(but now i think result is better than the picture shows). Nurse did ask me if i want to do one more face time talk, but since i decided this is the doctor, i said no. Before surgery, i met Doctor Lee again, i showed him some pictures of the nose i would like. Doctor Lee is very busy and a lot of people come in to him. I used to think a busy doctor won't care too much about what patient said, but doctor lee totally changed my thought. He is busy because he is so experienced and skilled and just can't stop people coming to him, but once you become his patient, he will listen to you and help you. I was so lucky to find Doctor Lee and got a pretty natural nose that i never had in my life!If any friend of mine wants to do rhinoplasty, i would say Doctor Lee is the one! Anybody can trust him on his experience and skills. I highly suggest people to check doctor's before and after pictures before making final decision. Thanks again Doctor Lee!!!!

I recently did a revision rhinoplasty with Dr Charles Lee and the below is my honest review. I am not the type of person who writes reviews but does when feel necessary or important to share with others. I had a primary rhinoplasty in 2013 in Asia using a silicon implant and removed it in 2018 due to multiple chronic infections. i ended up with a SEVERELY contracted nose and it drove me crazy. I was looking for revision using my own cartilage and i knew the only thing that could fix is rib. I was referred to Dr Charles Lee by Dr Bang from Visual plastic surgery where i had my implant removal. Dr Bang referred Dr Lee as "the only guy i trust with the rib" I sorta liked and trusted Dr Bang based on my interactions with him and his surgical work done on me so i decided to trust Dr Bang's judgment and go with Dr Lee even before i met him. I still did my research and met few other doctors along the way but i went with Dr Lee at the end. I am on my 10th day after the revision rhino using my rib and i am very satisfied with the result. I would like to point out few details you may need to know... 1.I had literally ZERO swelling or brusing which are considered "normal" when you go thru facial plastic surgery or any kind of surgeries and considering mine was a nose reconstruction which is quite a major one, i was very surprised and pleased. 2.Overall, stitches were very well placed, i feel like there won't be much scar left after healing's completed (including rib harvested site). 3.I went thru general anesthesia but had zero nausia or any other side effects, Dr Shon(anesthesiologist) made me feel relaxed and comfortable. 4.Nurses are professional and friendly and know what they are doing and make you feel cared. (They are all super hot too..) 5.He has a reasonable revision policy. 6.I had a breathing problem due to deviated septal cartilage but forgot to mention during the consultation because i was so caught up with the shape but it seems he fixed it too, my breathing is so much better now. Overall, Dr Charles Lee is an honest, compassionate, and skilled surgeon. You may not be able to sense the above traits just by talking to him, but you will see them clearly after the surgery. The only thing that concerns me is that he is not a young man(Although he looks young... i think he has a lot of work done on himself too). I want him to be active at least 20 additional years so that whenever there's problem with my nose i can go to him but not sure if he could do that long time, i may start sending him some healthcare products to keep him young and healthy...

Virtual Consultation Review - Dr. Charles Lee has made me feel human again. After an initial rhinoplasty with Dr. Yoo left me feeling depressed and ugly (as it was so not at all what I asked for) it was nice just feeling respected and listened to during my virtual consultation. One thing I have learned, that I wish I knew previously, is that Dr. Lee has more of a natural/subtle aesthetic. Dr. Yoo has more of a IG/plastic surgery aesthetic. Do not go to Dr. Yoo expecting something natural and vice versa, even if he tells you it will be customized to your face. Know what aesthetic you want, and go to the doctor accordingly. I recommend getting a consultation with at least both before choosing. I scheduled the appointment yesterday, immediately got a text from Angela and we coordinated the Facetime for the next day. There was a last minute opening and I was able to Facetime a couple of hours earlier. The consultations were night and day. Personally, I felt Dr. Lee was far more conversational, and I didn't have to lead the conversation. He knew right away what went wrong with my primary, and took the time to truly listen to me and educate me. I explained to him what I had discussed and said I wanted during my initial consultation with Dr. Yoo and that I was always happy with my bridge and side profile and only cared about the front. I told him the exact same things I had told Dr. Yoo during my primary consultation. Dr. Lee also explained that DCF is difficult since you cannot always predict how a patient's skin will absorb the DCF so sometimes, in patients where the outcome looks perfect, it's because they were lucky enough that their body absorbed the right amount of DCF. Other times, as with myself, the body doesn't absorb as much. Sometimes surgeons over project a bit because they anticipate the body to absorb more than it does. I think this is where years of experience come into play, because Dr. Lee has likely seen far more biracial patients and can better predict how much their bodies will absorb the DCF.He had nothing bad to say about Dr. Yoo and was very professional. He said that he revises Dr. Yoo's patients sometimes, just as Dr. Yoo revises his. It seems like as far as asian rhinoplasty goes these are two of the biggest players, and I just hope in the future anyone wanting a asian rhinoplasty schedules a consultation with both, so no one has to suffer the way I did. As we discussed my aesthetic preferences together, he morphed in front of me what we were discussing. This did NOT happen with Dr. Yoo. I had walked into Dr. Yoo's office and there was a 2D morph pre-prepared that wasn't very visually helpful as it looked so similar. I also think Dr. Lee, because he has been doing this much longer, is a far better communicator, morpher and educator. As a patient, it is incredibly challenging since you don't know what you don't know, and it's hard even just finding the right medical terminology to explain what you want. It is very important that you walk away from your consult feeling educated and confident. Trust your gut instinct. Ultimately, I have not yet chosen him as my revision specialist because I have learned my lesson and plan on getting several other consultations, but it was so reassuring speaking with him and it was a 10/10 consultation. My last follow up consultation with Dr. Yoo was a few months ago and he basically insulted me and I'm shocked he would speak to a patient in that manner. He also insisted there was no way my breathing could possibly be worse and that he didn't believe me and thought it was psychosomatic. Which, if I had made a mistake and didn't want to admit it, is probably what I would say as well. However the collapsed internal valve and over-projected tip that Dr. Lee instantly recognized shows that it was not psychosomatic. Dr. Lee was basically the polar opposite of Dr. Yoo and I look forward to seeing my morphs 🙂

Asian Revision rhinoplasty with solid rib - I previous had a rhinoplasty with a well known doctor in Orange County using DCF from my septum. I was unhappy with the results as my nose was still round and the bridge was not as high as I liked. After waiting for a year, I finally consulted Dr Charles S. Lee from enhance medical. I have been "stalking" him and another surgeon in Instagram and realself for quite a while. In September of 2019 I finally went in for a consultation. I was getting a revision rhinoplasty using solid rib. He asked me what my concerns were and I mentioned by frontal view. I wanted a projected defined tip, smaller nostrils, and a higher bridge. I'm sure that's pretty typical for all Asians. I asked him why he was using a solid rib instead of DCF. He said he use to do DCF a lot but he felt it can be unpredictable and he felt he can get a better dorsum with a solid rib. He did morphs for me but I actually didn't pay close attention to the morphs because we had great conversation and we kept talking for awhile. I put my deposit the next day and my surgery was scheduled for December 4th.

24 Yo Female, Asian Rhinoplasty + Double Eyelids - I've benefited greatly from reading everyone's posts and reviews about their procedures and so I wanted to share my own experience in case it helps someone contemplating the procedure. I have had L shape silicone implant and Korean style three-point positioning done in china 7,8 years ago, the thread in my eyes had fallen out a couple of years ago, I didn't bother to get it fixed, recently I have had a minor infection to my nose from the holiday traveling and drinking, it was red, hot, and I see a light brown spot forming from the tip of my nose (which is a common behavior for L shape implant when infected, it can poke out and drip out from the tip of your nose, I would never have gotten the L shape if I knew this can happen, but I had it done when I was a young and dumb and poor 17 yo)After consulting back and forth between Dr. Charles Lee & Dr. Donald Yoo in LA, and David Kim in SF I decided to go with the one with more YOE and fewer failed cases, which is Dr. Charles Lee.I was surprised how quickly Dr. Lee was able to perform the procedure on me, I called at the beginning of Jan, and He was able to see me and do the procedure that week, which was a red flag that almost made me panic go with Donald Yoo... on the day of surgery, Dr. Lee had two double eyelid surgery prior to mine. I ended getting into the surgery room 2 hours later than my scheduled one at noon. I was awake when they did my eyes, the anesthesiologist injected me with fentanyl, and then all of a sudden the idea of cutting my eyes when I am awake seemed ok. After they are done with my eyes, they put me to sleep to do my rhinoplasty. Day 0: I went into surgery at 2 pm, my boyfriend picked me up at 7 pm. So the whole thing was 4 hours something. I went straight to sleep after I came back to the hotel. Day 1:Woke up around 10 am, nothing really hurts it just feels really really uncomfortable, my eyes, the nose was swelling, my cheek, lip, and upper gum were also swelling, my rib area hurts a little, more like really sore, like after an intense exercise, soI had trouble getting out of bed, (had my bf carried me in and out of bed, he has been a charm at taking care of me I feel so lucky). I had clear liquid coming out of my nose constantly.. which was annoying. I didn't want to look at myself in the mirror until night time, I looked like a bloated cadaver. Day 2: I am even more swollen than day 1, nose fluid and conjunction got worse. The rib feels better, I found a way to get out of bed without using my rib muscle. I know the result is not final yet, and things can change a lot when the swelling goes down, but right now my nostril is really really visible, I don't know what to expect. Day 3

What more can I say? Seamless surgery from beginning until end - I am officially 6 months post-op! What more can I say - seamless surgery from beginning until end.Dr. Lee lives and breathes rhinoplasties, especially Asian rhinoplasties. Whatever you think you know/researched, he knows it better and will explain to you why it can or can’t work for your specific case, and then proceeds to tell you how he’s going to get you closest to that desired result. AMAZING.Many people generally go in wanting a higher bridge and a skinnier base. I am a perfectionist and a very specific person, so I was very specific about what I wanted:Somewhat high bridge (as in higher than what asians typically ask for but that still looks natural/balances the rest of my face), reduce nostril size but don't want my nostrils to be upturned aka “pig-like” (which is what I’ve noticed a lot of surgeons do), make nose symmetrical (mine was wider on one size), minimal scarring (a given, but not every surgeon delivers), a small/dainty/round tip for that “button nose” look (aka wolfiecindy lol), and the tip slightly lengthened to elongate my face.During our 2nd consultation, I also showed Dr. Lee 3-4 pictures I liked of his own work, and 2-3 separate pictures I found on instagram which he “studied” for ~20 minutes and then he operated.It goes without saying that I was very nervous about getting it done, but i was extremely confident in Dr. Lee’s skill/expertise (trust the process/ your surgeon!). I immediately knew when I first met Dr. Lee that he was very sharp and knowledgeable and that I could trust him to operate on my face. But when we took off the cast a week later and I was able to actually see my nose for the first time, it was more amazing than I could have ever dreamed of or imagine. He really outdid his own self and brought all of my random bits and pieces of requests to life!Clean office, safe practices/ policies in place, pharmacy located in same complex, extremely efficient (Dr. Lee wastes no time), helpful staff, timely to all appointments (this was a big one for me), has a keen eye for what looks good, and listens to what you want. But even all that doesn’t even compare to his sheer skill/expertise in rhinoplasties.PS. you will never be confused because Angela arranges and figures out everything for you, I literally just showed up lol. I loved how she genuinely takes all of your concerns/questions to heart and relays them to Dr. Lee who will then address them during your next consult.It can be really intimidating bringing things up to surgeons sometimes and she really bridges that surgeon-patient gap and makes sure nothing gets missed. She is so, so helpful and sweet! Between her and Dr. Lee, you are in GREAT hands.

Dr. Lee performed my surgeryI had rhinoplasty and nostril narrowing. I had a really tall nose (for an Asian) and bump that developed after breaking it as a kid. Dr. Lee shaved reduced the bump and actually shaved down the bridge, so mine was more of a reduction surgery. My big nose did not fit my face. It was like my nose was removed from someone of another race and stuck onto my Asian face. The base of my nose was a little wide for my face, as well, and the narrowing was subtle but a big improvement overall. Its been 6 months since my surgery, and I feel like Im finally the way I was always supposed to be. I look totally natural, and I healed great.

facegal - Hi, I recently had rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Lee.After wanting this surgery for 15 years and going to 3 other consults, I finally decided on Dr. Lee. He is AMAZING for so many reasons. For one - he has a surgeon's hands but an artist's eye. There are many capably surgeons out there who can cut you up and put you back together fine but not many who know what will be the best look for you. He is one of the few that can visualize what will look best on your and then achieve that with his surgical skills. Secondly he specializes in Asian faces. The other consults I went to the doctors never addressed my nose tip which is quite important to me. They simply wanted to add a bridge and cut my nostrils. I felt like they didn't get it. Dr. Lee gets what an aesthetically pleasing ASIAN face should look like. Rather than just trying to place a white person's feature on an Asian face. 3 - He's got the best bedside manner that I know of! Post-op, he followed up with me so many times and even made a house call because I was feeling sick. As busy as his schedule is, he makes you feel like you're his one and only most important patient in the world. He truly cares and is obsessed with getting the best results possible. Hands down worth the investment and extra money just for the peace of mind. You only have one face, do the surgery once and do it right. Rather than waste more time and money later.

Natural Looking Asian Eyelid Surgery and Rhinoplasty - Los Angeles, CA - I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Charles Lee if you are interested in getting cosmetic surgery that LOOKS NATURAL!I was a newbie ~3 months ago, set on getting double eyelid surgery and considering some type of nose revision (my complaint was my nose seemed too wide when I smiled). When I visited Dr. Lee's office for a consult, I was very comfortable with his recommendations and his professionalism. He asked me questions about me...i.e. what i did for a living, etc. because he wanted to make sure my new "look" would still match my personality. I appreciated that because the last thing I wanted was to look like the next "done up " girl down the street.I decided on my surgery mid-October 2012, which went smoothly. I was most shocked at how fast I healed....just 1.5 weeks later I went back to work as a dentist and nobody could pinpoint that I had surgery done. All they noticed was "something different..." but they couldn't see scars or incision lines.Fast forward 2.5 months, I'm enjoying this new 2013 year with beautiful natural looking eyelids, a revised nose with a higher nose bridge and narrower ala. I love the change, and everyone still comments on the natural look.Dr. Lee is truly skilled at what he does, and I believe is best at making your new you look natural! Thanks, Dr. Lee!

Best Plastic Surgeon for Asian Patients! - Beverly Hills, CA - Dr. Lee and Kathleen are the best medical team I have ever worked with. Dr. Lee is a perfectionist and will ensure you will be happy with your results. He is knowledgable and is an expert with Asian features. I have never seen a doctor who will even provide a place to stay to stay for recovery. Kathleen has been really patient with organizinging everything from out of state. She also is very caring after recovery ensuring you will be safe after surgery. You must consult Dr. Lee if you are considering any facial surgery. I have had double eyelid and rhinoplasty with excellent results. TLV

Search No More! Dr. Lee is the Best of the Best! - Beverly Hills, CA - Based on my personal experience and results, I would say that Dr. Lee is the best plastic surgeon for Asians in the nation.

I highly recommend Dr. Lee for all cosmetic enhancement needs/desires. PC

Best Doctor for Asian Patients! Beverly Hills, CA - for my 40th B-day, on my sister suggestion, I decided to undergo a mommy make over: rhinoplasty, breast implants, and forehead Botox injection. I live in Michigan and she lives in Los Angeles. she had a rhinoplasty done by another doctor but his quote came back quite high. she has been doing some filler injection with doctor Lee and was very pleased with the result, his experience and his bed side manner, his staff are very friendly. his quote came back very reasonable. I am Asian and had breast fed my kid for a while. I have to say that I am absolutely pleased with the result, my nose looks very natural and fit my face (he raised the bridge and narrowed the base), my breasts look fantastic and I have scars that are invisible (he went through the nipple). I had saline implant, under the muscle. I am still healing and swollen and I will see their real size only in a few months. for the nose, he used the cartilage of my ears to reshape the bridge. the Botox injection was quick, painless and no side effect (I was afraid I would get headaches from them). I highly recommend doctor Lee, he is an excellent doctor specialized in Asian features. he is also very kind,patient and listen well.

Great Experience at Dr. Lee's Office - Beverly Hills, CA - I just had my nose filler (bridge) done today. Just a little background, I started e mailing Dr. Lee's office and I was so impressed at how prompt his office staff replied. Dr. Lee had me sent my pictures via e mail for evaluation and his response was so prompt as well and best of all it was for free. Before Dr. Lee injected the filler he briefed me on what the product was as well as what to expect. Now it's all done and time to pay, I was really thinking that the 1 cc filler at $400 qouted to me thru e mail was just the base amount so I thought it would cost me around a thousand the most, but to my surprise it was really $400, I said wow! I will definitely have Dr. Lee do my surgical Rhinoplasty.

Excellent Doc - Beverly Hills, CA - I have visited with Dr. Lee twice now, once for blepharoplasty and again for rhinoplasty. The staff was super friendly and informative and on top of responding to my questions and concerns. Dr. Lee was also super helpful and listened to exactly what I was looking for and the results have changed my life. I am so happy with the results.

I initially went to see Dr. Lee for rhinoplasty. After consulting with several plastic surgeons, supposed "experts" in Asian cosmetic surgery, I knew Dr. Lee was hands down better than all the other guys. I ended up having eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty, which was the best decision I could have made. I'd seen some of his results, and I was blown away.--Mine were no exception. On two separate office visits, there were 2 different surgeons observing Dr. Lee. Apparently, he has a reputation among his peers as the premier plastic surgeon for Asian aesthetics. After my great experience, I would have to agree.

From the first consultation with Dr.Lee, I knew that I was in good hands. He made me feel very comfortable and most importantly safe with my procedure. With my procedure there were complications due to my septum, instead of accepting me right away he took the time to think over the pros and cons. The fact that he did that instead of just taking on my case shows me that he genuinely cares about his craft and the safety of his clients. I am very happy that I had my surgery and looking forward to seeing my results.

I had chin implant and rhinoplasty with Dr. Charles Lee. My profile looks great. The chin is now strong but doesn't make my face look any wider. My nose is more grown-up looking now instead of the kid-nose I used to have. He put an implant that makes it nice and straight, but still looks like it belongs on my face. I have a lot more confidence now. It has really paid off socially, as well. Dr. Lee is very professional and knows his stuff. Great doc, great guy.

Review from D.V. - Source: Yelp - Nov 28, 2017
Dr. Lee is awesome and like a sculptor creates great looking noses. I was so pleased with his septoplasty/rhinoplasty work in mid Sept that I recommended my daughter get septoplasty/rhinoplasty on the Thanksgiving week. He took a lot of time with my daughter to explain the procedures before, follow-up next day and a few days later when suture was removed. He has great and friendly staff whether it be nurses and office staff.Experience counts and so do how many procedures surgeon has done. Well he literally perfected the hard-to-do nose job with cartilage harvested from rib. He spends much time giving customers the best looking nose especially the tip like an artist! There was NO swelling, bruising and little pain - a true testament to his surgery skills. The best part is that both I and my daughter breathe better thanks to Dr. Lee being ENT specialist, and our insurance (YMMV) covered for the nose jobs.You have a choice when it comes to picking the right plastic surgeon and I can tell you that you can't go wrong with Dr. Lee. BTW - it's your face and hard to believe some people price shop rather than see the BEST surgeon hands down.PS - go to Dr. Lee's Instagram for daily updates to the surgeries he has performed with pics.

I found Dr. Lee online after researching rhinoplasty for around 6 months. When I first called, I was assisted and informed by Angela about the procedure, who did an amazing job at making the process easy to understand. She setup FaceTime calls with the doctor, who was extremely experienced with his job. He performed a rib rhinoplasty, chin implant, and lower eyelid fat graft, which all turned out fantastic. I am very pleased with the natural looking results. Even though I live far from California, all the way in Florida, it was well worth the long trip because of the amazing outcome.

Flawless Primary Rhinoplasty and Blepharoplasty - I decided on Dr. Lee after consulting with 3 other docs. I followed him on IG for awhile and was amazed at all of the befores afters. His eye for natural asian aesthetics is what ultimately helped me decide. I chose to do a primary rib rhino with blepharoplasty. My surgery was on July 30th. I was extremely nervous leading up to my surgery because rhinoplasty is the hardest surgery to perform. Dr. Lee answered all my questions via email and saw me in person in additional to my pre op just to finalize the process and goals. I was very happy and at ease that he knew exactly what I wanted. I was in contact pre op and post op with Angela the patient coordinator. She was very accommodating and quick to answer all my questions. Nurse Karla came to my hotel room to care for me after I got out of surgery. She's the sweetest and made me feel very comfortable even though it was rough waking up after anesthesia. I'm very surprised on how easy recovery was. I was prepared to go through pain and expected a swollen and beat up face after watching some youtube recovery vids. I had none of that!! My nose had zero pain only soreness for a few days in my rib area. My eyes had zero pain and were only very swollen for the days leading up to stitch removal. I didnt have bruising and barely any swelling of the face. I was feeling great after the 2nd day and was publicly presentable after a wk. I did a few sessions of red light therapy elsewhere to help with inflammation and to speed up the recovery of scar tissues. Byuora quickly removed my stitches at day 5 which was painless in the nose but slightly uncomfortable in the eyes. She has been answering all my post op concerns via text.I saw Dr. Lee during my stitch removal appt and again on day 10 to discuss a concern I had which we will revisit after 6 months.I know I have to be patient but I'm so ready to see my final results in a year! Sometimes my nose and eyes look different from day to day but I know that's part of swelling and recovery. The only annoying things are stuffy and runny nose but that's been improving a lot after the 1st wk. My scars are fading away beautifully so I have no doubt they will eventually be invisible.I'm very satisfied with the entire experience and feel very relieved that the outcome is better than expected. Dr. Lee is THE only surgeon I will trust for my face! His skills and experience make him the best asian specialized plastic surgeon and in my opinion his results are all phenomenal! Thank you so much for working your magic on my face and giving me my dream eyes and nose!!

Its really hard to find a surgeon who understands Asian features. After all, most of the surgeons in beverly hills are caucasian and I absolutely wanted the best surgeon who understands my face. Surgery isn't something you can skimp on you know. Dr. Lee computer imaged what I would look like after and I went ahead with the procedures. It is expensive =( but I used carecredit. I did eyes and nose and chin and honestly.. very honestly... for a week after the surgery you look scary.. like a swollen monster - just hide and ice and really ice your face. After the stitches were out, my healing was significantly faster I could defnitely see a day to day difference. I recommend filling out all your paperwork before the day of the surgery. I did so on the day of my preoperation it just makes things go so much smoother.The office really blew up my phone with check ups and made sure there was someone to take care of me that night. The next day when I missed my post surgery check up they left about 5 messages and I finally picked up on phone call number 6 with a groggy hello?nevertheless I highly recommend this surgeon despite the high price tag because you really get what you pay for

Asian Double Eyelid Surgery & Rhinoplasty. - Beverly Hills, CA - Dr. Lee seems like he genuinely cares about his patients. I'm about one month post operation and i absolutely love my new nose. I love my eyelids too, however, since I got epicanthoplasty I was expecting my eyelids to be on the outside .. but it's still on the inside. Dr. Lee says that I have to wait six months to get a revision. I've been complaining to him about this. I've been emailing him, texting him and calling his office, and he remains patient with me and says we need to wait six months. I'm happy that he doesn't rush into a revision just because i'm so pushy. I also got botox for jaw reduction, not sure why my jaw isn't slimming down.. maybe it's just my facial structure.. All in all, Dr. Lee is a professional and patient doctor. I can't wait five more months to get my eyelid revision !!Update *03/01/2015*I take back my previous comment about Botox for jaw reduction was not working.. I actually see my jaw starting to slim down now !! I'm happy !! 🙂 thanks dr.lee ! ^_^

Outstanding results! I went to him initially for revision work and have never regretted it. Over the years, I've had chin implant, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, facial implant, breast augmentation, liposuction, buccal fat shaping. He is obviously an artist and the best in the field.--I have really done my research here. Just look at the results of other competitors--there is no comparison. It's a privilege to have access to such a talented surgeon. I hope he never retires!

Beverly Hills has so many drs to choose from but Dr Lee stands out for me with his phenomenal art of surgical improvement. I have seen him since 2004--2016 for eye lid, under eye fat removal, rhinoplasty, browlift, breast augmentation...I fell in love with my results and kept going back for more over the past 12 yrs. The impressive thing about Dr Lee is, my results look enhanced yet Beautifully Natural!! Which is the main key to great results---to not look ridiculously plastic. My recovery experience has been easy with minimal pain & bruising, thanks to dr lee's technique. The office staff are so helpful & kind. I'm just so grateful & lucky to have such a talented dr help me reach my goals!

Simply the BEST - I highly recommend Dr. Lee. My experience under his care was nothing but stellar from start to finish. I had lower eyelid surgery, chin implant, rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, buccal fat pad shaping, and facial implants (not all at once, of course.) No one would guess that I'd had surgery unless they've seen my before and after pictures--that's how natural my results turned out. Dr. Lee actually revised my breast augmentation that was initially performed by another surgeon, as I was looking for a more natural result. Dr. Lee was spot on in diagnosing the problem and correcting it far beyond my expectations. As far as the staff decorum mentioned in another review, what office doesn't have staffing issues? Sometimes there are just bad eggs in an office, but this doesn't detract from Dr. Lee's expertise.Take a look around at other doctors. No one gets the results he does, and that speaks volumes above and beyond anything one could write in a review. Bottom line, Dr. Lee is an artist and the very best at what he does.

I have been Dr.Lee's patient for six years for all my procedure, I had forehead lift, double eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, cheek reduction, jaw shaving and genioplasty, also botox. All I can say is that my experience with Dr.Lee is amazing, my family loves him. I am a very picky patient, but he has always been there listen to my request and figure out what will make me look the best....and he make sure my recovery will be as comfortable as possible. I just can't say enough how professional and caring is him and also his crew is amazing too. before I found him, I have seen and talk to many plastic surgeon, and no one has made me and my family as comfortable and trusting as him ... With my 6 year of experience with him, I just can't say enough that how amazing is him ... Oh yeah, my result is beautiful, natural, just excellent, excellent... Love it and love it!!! And his pricing is very reasonable and with the best suggestion on what to take or use to help u make your recovery much easier. He will always be mine, my family and friend's choice as a plastic surgeon!!!!!! 🙂
