Dr. Gilbert Lee, the director of Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, has been voted a San Diego “Top Doctor” in Plastic Surgery by his peers for the fifth year in a row. “I’m both humbled and appreciative of this recognition by the doctors of San Diego,” said Dr. Lee.
Now in his 18th year of helping patients look and feel their best, Dr. Lee blends the latest technology and advanced skin care into his plastic surgery practice. “ Our primary concern is about patient care and successful outcomes. That’s always the prime motivator.”
Dr. Lee’s specialties include facelifts, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), liposuction, and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). In each case, Dr. Lee combines artistry with precision to achieve a result that is natural-appearing and meets or exceeds the patient’s desired outcome. “My best reward is a happy patient with a great result.”
Whether one has had plastic surgery before or is a relative newcomer to the process, each patient will find Dr. Lee and his expert staff to be warm, approachable, and friendly. Their newly remodeled office reflects elegance, and incorporates the most modern equipment.
Dr. Lee earned his medical degree at the University of California, San Diego. He then went on to receive his surgical training at some of the most prestigious universities. He continues to be a leader in his field by publishing in the top journals, presenting his work at national conferences, and helping to train students and residents at UCSD Medical Center.
Always providing the latest in plastic surgery and skin care improvements, Dr. Lee was the first in San Diego to use the Vectra 3D imager, which produces a rotating, three dimensional view of the patient’s face, breast, or body.
“The Vectra 3D imager is a major advance in providing the best care for our patients, and I am happy to be in the forefront of its use,” Dr. Lee explained. “The science is constantly advancing and patients can rest assured that we’re always looking to the future.”
