Meet Dr. Raymond Lee - Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Lee is double board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Board of Otolaryngology and has spent a decade perfecting his craft. The desire to pursue medicine was evident at a young age, as Dr. Lee’s father, an OB/GYN, shared his passion for both medicine and people. This lead to an extensive academic journey which began at Northwestern University in Chicago with an undergraduate degree, and continued with a medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
After graduation, Dr. Lee was granted a General Surgery internship and an Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital in south Florida. While there, he earned the prestigious Chandler Society Research Scientific Award for temporal bone work. Once his residency was completed, he continued his education in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he received intensive fellowship training in aesthetic facial plastics, under the direction of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Dr. Lee has also co-authored numerous medical articles and offered several professional presentations across the country to other plastic and cosmetic surgeons. He’s been practicing in Orange County since 2006, and has successfully performed nearly 4,000 facial aesthetic surgeries, and has built a reputation for achieving a natural appearance for his patients. This surgical skill is the basis of his talent, and garners extensive recognition in the field of facial plastic surgery.
Giving back to those less fortunate is a focus of Dr. Lee’s personal and professional life, and he volunteers his time and talent performing reconstructive surgeries for acquired and congenital pediatric facial defects at the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia and CURE International Hospital in the Dominican Republic. Dr Lee has been voted Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Orange County the last 4 years in a row.
He is married to Shannon, a local pharmacist, and they recently had a baby boy. Dr. Lee and his family enjoy living in Orange County and frequent the outdoors hiking, playing on the beach, surfing and taking care of their two rescue dogs.
