Dr. Michelle Lee, founder of PERK, starred on E! Entertainment’s new reality plastic surgery show Dr. 90210 that aired on September 28th 2020. This was the first medical show featuring an all-female surgeon cast. Dr. 90210 showcased Dr. Lee and three other top female plastic surgeons as they helped their patients undergo life-changing procedures while juggling their personal lives.
While women are now a majority of entering medical students in the US, plastic surgery remains a male-dominated field where men make up 85% of board certified plastic surgeons. The gender gap is especially profound when 92% of cosmetic surgeries are performed on women and women make up only 15% of surgeons available to the patients.
“From excess skin removal, third breast extraction, and a double mastectomy, to facial cysts and post childbirth vaginal rejuvenations these four doctors use their remarkable insight, skill, and bedside manner to guide patients from consultations to surgery and recovery, proving a woman’s touch can go beyond skin deep,” E! announced in the premiere of Dr. 90210 that aired September 28th, 2020.
