I've had work done with Dr. Lee and he is absolutely phenomenal!! He genuinely cares about how you feel, and is a perfectionist about getting the best results.
Laura, Tara, and Rachel were amazing staff..thank you Dr Lee for your amazing work of art through my breast cancer.

My experience with Dr. Lee and his staff was wonderful. Someone I know recommended him to me for breast reduction surgery and I couldn't be happier with my results! Dr. Lee is kind, compassionate, and definitely an artist at what he does. I have just referred someone to him as well. Great experience, beautiful office, kind, friendly office staff.

The decision to have breast reduction surgery was a difficult decision. Despite having back pain and difficulty exercising, it was still surgery and so I did not make this decision lightly. Instead, I had the professional guidance of Dr Lee and Laura Scarpa, RN. This turned out to be the best medical decision I could have made. My physical and emotional health has improved greatly since my surgery. Dr Lee was profession, knowledgeable and caring. I would highly recommend Dr Lee!

Dr. John Lee is gifted ! I cannot say enough about his skill and talent. Its hard to hear the words "breast cancer" and "bilateral mastectomy".. but that was my journey.. What is great about life, is you have choices. I chose to LIVE and I chose Dr. John Lee.. Best choices I could make. Dr. Lee is professional, pays attention to every detail. Takes time to explain the procedures and is so compassionate. I highly recommend Dr, Lee and his great staff !

I never thought I would feel so comfortable at a cosmetic surgeons office. I went for a breast augmentation and and Dr Lee made me feel so at ease from the first time I met him. His staff are absolutely incredible. They are there to answer every question & offer so much support throughout the process. I cannot say enough about them or the amazing results from my procedure. I am a mom of twins who nursed for a full year and was left with uneven breasts. Now they are perfect! I couldn't be happier

When I was diagnosed with melanoma I didn't know what would come next. I had a consult with Dr. Lee and he took the time to explain about what he would need to do in a very caring manner, asked if I had questions and surgery was set. Surgery day he was amazing, talked to me throughout the whole prodecure, always making sure I was fine.. The surgery was quick,and the scar is a small fine line...What an amazing job he did, I would recommend him and his staff highly..awesome Dr. and excellent staf
in Darien, CT |
Best doctor ever. He removed a mole from my daughters face and within only 2 weeks you could barely see a scar. Very detailed. Very easy to talk to. Very good with kids. Very everything. I have gone back for my own services, and he and his staff still get VERY everything! Would recommend him and only him as a plastic surgeon.
Norwich, CT |
Great from the moment I walked into the office for the first time. The office was very clean and beautiful, and the staff very friendly. Dr.Lee is an awesome surgeon.
in New London,CT |
On July 13th Lawrence and Memorial hospital kept my fiancee Phillip breathing, and Dr.John Lee saved his face. He was thrown from his bicycle face first into an iron fence tearing apart his nose and lips; glass from his eyeglasses embedded in his mouth. I watched as he both stitched and comforted Phillip. I was awestruck,and we are grateful to this truly gifted man. Karen Henderson..

I felt confident in going forward and I couldn't be more pleased Thank you Doctor Lee
in Niantic, CT |
I would highly recommend Dr. Lee to people in the community. He is very professional at all times. Also I would describe him as a perfectionist which when dealing with your body is what you want. I remain very happy with my body postoperatively after bilateral reconstruction for mastectomies with silicone implants.
Waterford, CT |
I feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Lee and his staff regarding my mastectomy and reconstruction. I have never felt rushed or disregarded in any way. Every concern I have had has been dealt with appropriately.
in Salem, CT |
Dr. Lee is not your typical plastic surgeon. He took his time to discuss what all my options were and gained an understanding of exactly what I wanted. He doesn't do cookie cutter operations where everyone ends up looking the same, he truly tailors to your wants and needs. I have recommended him to multiple friends and family and they are very happy with his work.
in Montville, CT |
My girlfriend went through breast cancer treatment and the toughest part emotionally was her breast reconstruction decision. I am grateful for the great care kindness, and reassurance Dr. Lee provided throughout the process.

in Taftville, CT |
The staff here is always so cheery and bright!! They have helped me so much with all of my needs. I was hesitant at first, to schedule my very first appointment, because of financial and downtime worries. The second that i walked into Dr. Lee's beautiful office--every worry was gone! The more than delightful office staff made all of my appointments and my surgery so easy- taking the worry and planning away from all of it! I'm so glad I made the decision to see Dr. Lee, after searching so long!!!
in Groton, CT |
I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Lee. From the first day (consultation) on, Dr. Lee and his staff have been absolutely amazing! Everything was explained clearly and anytime I needed them, they were ready to help! The entire experience was over the top awesome! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them! Make an appointment for a consultation, I promise it will be worth it!
