Temple Mid Facelift
“Mini” Facelift or Temple Browlift was invented by Dr. Lee to complement his filler treatments by providing an uplifted and tighter foundation; the result is uplifted cheeks, pulled lateral brow/temple area and noticeable improvement or tightness in the nasal labial folds, jowls and jawline. Dr. Lee perfected this method after many years of working with dis-solvable sutures/PDO threads and realizing they are more effective and long lasting. There was too much weight for the PDO threads to sustain the “lift” that people expected. So Dr. Lee worked many years to create a surgical procedure he could perform under local injections in the office in less than 2 hours.
This procedure is performed using multiple permanent sutures pulled upwards using a small incision above the ear in the scalp; recovery is minimal and the incision is not visible since it’s hidden in the scalp. Patients can drive themselves to and from our office after the procedure but many elect to have sedatives and have a driver accompany them; results will typically last 2-3 years; **For limited time, we are including the Infini RF needling laser for the lower face and neck area ($850 value) to help maintain the result of this treatment for a longer period. The total cost of this procedure is $6000.

Excellent experience with ptosis repair surgery from Dr. Lee and his staff. I hesitated for years having my drooping eyelid fixed due to nervousness and fear of a bad result but I am thrilled with the results. For the first time in my life my eyes are symmetrical and I look more awake. Everything from consultation to post-op follow up has been wonderful. Dr. Lee is truly skilled and his staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Although I regret waiting so long, I could not be happier with the results. Highly recommend
My Yale trained dermatologist referred me to Dr Lee, saying he was beyond incredible. Since at 73 this was my first exposure to cosmetic surgery, I was pretty apprehensive. Dr Lee is very professional and calm and explains his whole entire procedure.
I had the upper and lower eyelids done as well as some filler around my naso labial area and Chin. The result was outstanding. Everyone in the office is so kind and interested in what you're doing and how it comes out. I highly recommend Dr Lee for cosmetic surgery. That is me in the center of the photo at a recent wedding. My friends are now thinking about working with Dr Lee as well!
Dr. Lee's work represents excellence in oculoplastic for my double eyelid surgery.
I interviewed several plastic surgeons before going to see Dr. Lee. This was something I have wanted to do since I was 18 years old and knew what I wanted. The other doctors did not give me a sense of confidence that they could address my needs. I requested that I want to have a high crease, bigger eyes but natural. Dr. Lee's professional and personable approach allowed me to see that he has extraordinary command of his profession. He immediately knew what I needed and knew what I wanted. Upon further exploration it became necessary to have full incision crease and epicanthoplasty. I was reassured to make sure I was getting the higher crease but I knew it would not look natural but Dr. Lee still managed to give me the higher crease and a natural look.
Throughout the process he kept me fully informed and was reassuring. I was pleased with every step of the process and even more so with the overall result. I am grateful beyond measure for his skill and precision. Now, I often receive compliments from total strangers about my beautiful eyes.
To sum up my experience with Dr. John Lee I would choose these words, extraordinary precision measured against the highest standards in the profession, delivered with compassion and kindness.
To Date I still see Dr. Lee for my botox and filler treatments to sculpt my face.

My Amazing Journey
I want to state first that I found Dr. Lee to be painstakingly thorough, meticulous, compassionate and exceptionally skilled.
I suffered from under eye puffiness for years and approximately 5 years ago I started my endless search.
During my search there was Dr. Lee, who I chose in the end and never looked back.
I was initially impressed with his professional demeanor, knowledge and bedside manner. He was calm, he listened to my concerns, fears and was understanding. He answered all my questions which were direct, detailed and honest. He never once made me feel pressured or hurried. He provided me with great information which aided me in my decision to move forward.
During the surgery, I felt secure, comfortable, and that's because Dr. Lee provided his undivided attention and care which made me feel that I was in excellent hands.
After the surgery he gave me his direct contact number to get in touch with him at any given time if I had any problems or concerns. He also, personally called me more than once to check on the status of my condition. (That's what I call caring for the welfare of your patient as you would a family.)
I had some swelling which is to be expected. (Most of the visible swelling was down and down in about two weeks.)
No scarring, bruising, discomfort and virtually nonexistent pain.
The end result - I'm very, very happy and pleased with the outcome. Under Dr. Lee's capable hands and excellent precision you would never guess I had undergone lower lid surgery...my eyes look absolutely natural. What I expected exceeded more than I expected, and that's a good thing.
My overall journey with Dr. Lee from beginning to end was phenomenal. Dr. Lee is not one of the best, he is the BEST!! I can't praise him enough, I highly recommend him.
I would like to thank his wonderful staff for the outstanding service and care that was provided to me during my journey.
Thank you all...Job well done!!
After 15 years of contemplating lower lid eye bag removal and hours of research, my search landed on Dr.John Lee! I truly do not have enough words to describe how elated I am with my results! It literally took 20 years off me!! I can’t thank Dr.Lee and his staff enough for their knowledge, care and kindness during this process! They made me feel at ease the day of the procedure and I must say it was painless! My recovery was also a piece of cake!! Dr.Lee stayed very involved during my healing process, asking for weekly pictures and phone calls to check in on me! I am approximately an hour away from Dr. Lee’s Bryn Mawr location but I would have traveled across the country for this experience and to have the beautiful results I have now !! I can’t recommend Dr. John Lee and his amazing staff! My only regret is not doing this 15 years ago!
For literally years I put off addressing my heavy undereye bags and dark circles because I was very concerned about any procedures which would involve my face. Instead I wasted time and money on every cream and concealer I could find until, finally, after turning 40 I realized I could no longer cover the bags with makeup and was tired of looking tired and decided to see Dr. Lee. At my consultation he was very honest with me and my biggest concern was the visible scars. I’m an ICU RN so I did tons of research after I left my consultation and after researching his skin tightening technique in the current literature, I came to the conclusion that his technique was the best option for me to avoid any complications resulting from lower eyelid retraction.
With butterflies in my belly I made my appointment.
The procedure itself was only mildly uncomfortable with short periods of pain during fat pad removal, I slept through most of it. The in-office procedure without general anesthesia was appealing to me as I did not want either the risks or recovery time required in the use of general anesthesia. Dr. Lee was reassuring the entire time and I was confident in the sterility and safety of his in-office procedure room.
I can honestly say my results EXCEEDED my expectations. I was able to easily cover the incision scars with makeup after one month and the procedure took years off my appearance. At 3 months post procedure, the scars are almost totally gone. DO NOT HESITATE to trust Dr. Lee, he is a perfectionist, an artist and a true professional. He was available through personal text for any concerns for months after surgery. I do not write many reviews and hesitate to share my opinion regarding doctors but I made an exception because Dr. Lee is a rare find and has earned his stellar reputation.
AMAZING RESULTS!!! Both sides of my family have heavy eye bags and mine have always bothered me.
When I searched for a doctor, I first consulted with one locally in NYC. His method was to make an incision along my lash line and required anesthesia- this translated to longer recovery, more expense, and the risk of the lower lid being pulled down. Due to the expenses of it alone, I searched for another doctor. Dr lee’s reviews were high and I was willing to drive 2 hours away.
At the initial consultation, he told me the procedure would be done transconjunctively - meaning he didn’t need to cut through the lash line since my skin is tight enough that he felt confident my skin would just bounce back. I’m so happy I asked for a second opinion. The crazy thing is that the doctor I saw in nyc was named one of the best doctors in the country in New Beauty magazine yet I was steered in the wrong way!
Fast forward - I’m beyond thrilled with the results. Completely transformative.
Aside from dr Lee’s technical skills as a surgeon, I felt comfortable with him. I felt he set realistic expectations. I also felt he was very accessible. He called me the next day to check up on me. Who does that?
His staff is amazing too. Friendly, helpful, and felt at ease with all of them.
I highly recommend Dr Lee.
Dr. Lee is the best. I am so grateful and happy that I got the lower bleph procedure. It wasn’t bad at all. I was anxious at first but the team and Dr. Lee make sure you are relaxed and comfortable. If you have been thinking about doing this procedure- just do it!!!! You will be so happy!!! I am!!
Dr. Lee is an expert with an artistic eye. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented and very kind. I’m always pleased with the results after seeing him.
When conferring with Dr. Lee, you feel as though you are his only client. He is a master!
