Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive surgery is the foundation upon which plastic surgeons can re-build and reconstruct the human body from the face, breast, hands, to legs and feet. Great advances have come for plastic surgery in the 20th century with the advent of Complex Flap Surgery and Microsurgical Free Tissue Transfer. Dr. Lee has expertise in Flap Surgery and Microsurgery, where he performs the most complex Free Tissue Transfers such as the DIEP, SIEA, TAP, GAP, and other Perforator Flaps. These operations are the ultimate in reconstructive plastic surgery, requiring many hours and teams of surgeons. Face and hand transplantation are in the same category as this type of surgery. Key words: Nasal Reconstruction, Breast Reconstruction, Autologous Tissue Reconstruction, Hand and Extremity Reconstruction, Limb Salvage, Toe Transplantation.

Non Surgical Treatments:

Non surgical treatments can be performed with various injectable fillers or Botox. The beauty of these treatments is that they give quick results with minimal "down time." These treatments are best for areas on the body that require minimal to moderate changes. Large changes cannot be addressed with these options and usually require some form of skin removal. These options can be discussed at length with Dr. Lee at the consultation.

Botox — Wrinkle and frown lines; masseter muscle hypertrophy (www.botox.com)

Fraxel 1500 Laser Treatment (www.fraxel.com)

The Fraxel Laser has revolutionized laser resurfacing of the face with its patented “laser columns” that treat a percentage of the face instead of “burning” the entire face. This leaves a percentage of the normal skin to help heal the newly treated skin. It is a highly effective Erbium laser for the treatment of fine wrinkles, age spots, acne, and stretch marks. The laser causes a permanent change to the collagen in the skin by heating. Its greatest asset is the ability to obtain results with minimal “down time” (2 days) where the traditional CO2 laser required 3-4 weeks. Dr. Lee has treated many satisfied patients with the Fraxel Laser, including darker Fitzpatrick (III-V) skin, such as in Asians.

Varicose Veins

Painful, swollen legs with bulging veins can be treated by several methods. In the past, Vein Ligation and “Vein Stripping” have been the standard. However, Vein Ligation has a high recurrence rate and Vein Stripping is an extremely painful procedure, often requiring an inpatient hospital stay and bed confinement for days. Nonsurgical, EndoVenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) of Symptomatic Varicose Veins has become the treatment of choice with high success rates (> 95%, similar to RadioFrequency), can be performed as an "in-office" procedure under local anesthesia, and patients walk out of the office immediately afterward. As a Plastic Surgeon with expertise in Microvascular Surgery, Dr. Lee offers the highest level of technical precision to this safe, effective, treatment of Varicose Veins. Most often, these treatments are covered by Insurance.
