Doctor Spotlight: John J.W. Lee, MD, FACS Philadelphia Facial Cosmetic Surgeon

John J.W. Lee, MD, FACS

Over 7,000 Eyelid and Brow Lift Surgeries Performed

Philadelphia facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Lee focused his surgical avocation on the most delicate and scrutinized feature of the face – the areas around the eyes. Providing each person with a result that will highlight their natural feature and bring out their natural and youthful look.

Your eyes are the focal point of your face. The slightest assymetry is very noticeable. Dr. Lee has a  meticulous attention to detail, stemming from his micro-surgical training in ophthalmology, helping him to be one of the best surgeons at Oculoplastic Surgery.

Oculoplastics focuses on eyelid, forehead and orbital surgery

Oculoplastic surgeons, such as John J.W. Lee, M.D., FACS, complete surgical training in ophthalmology then apply for a two-year intensive surgical fellowship sponsored by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (ASOPRS).  Dr. Lee has performed more surgical eyelid procedures than most general cosmetic surgeons would perform in their entire career during his training at the prestigious Wills Eye Hospital. 

Dr. Lee always tries to deliver beyond the patient's expectations but wants them to know that the goal of plastic surgery is not to look different but to look like yourself but better. His patients tell him people thought they had a facelift because they looked great and refreshed. Since everyone notices your eyes, just giving them a lift can really change your whole outlook both from inside and out.

Eyelid Reconstruction Surgeon

Dr. Lee's favorite procedure to perform is eyelid reconstruction surgery due to trauma or skin cancer. He intentionally limits his scope of services because he strives to be the best surgeon at operating around the eyes. Dr. Lee strives for the best outcome with every patient, achieving this with almost all of his patients. Some Eyelid reconstructive surgery cases can be very involved and challenging. Depending on how extensively the cancer has spread, the surgery can often require skin grafts from other parts of the face and/or body. To see a disfigured patient who had a lot of his/her eyelid and facial skin removed come back and look like they never had surgery months later, is incredibly gratifying for Dr. Lee.
