If you suffer from painful, debilitating migraines, you may be excited to learn about nonsurgical and surgical options that can help restore your quality of life. Dr. Lee was personally trained by the founder of migraine surgery and authored numerous articles in leading plastic surgery journals on innovative migraine surgery techniques and outcomes.
Migraine surgery can help alleviate discomfort by isolating and removing migraine triggers. These triggers are commonly found around the forehead, temples, inside the nose and back of the head. As an added benefit of the surgery, the aesthetic appearance of some of these areas can also be improved with treatment.Migraine Surgery »

One of the causes close to Dr. Lee’s heart is Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. This is a San Diego-based nonprofit charity for children. The mission of the non-profit is to help children with deformities through reconstructive plastic surgery. Dr. Lee was first involved in the organization when she was in high school in San Diego. Together with other local artists, they put on multiple musical concerts to raise awareness and funds for the organization.
