Dr. Michelle Lee is a board-certified and ivy-league trained plastic surgeon behind some of the most natural-appearing results. She created PERK plastic surgery because life is too short to settle for anything less than the most extraordinary version of yourself.

“I have witnessed Dr Lee’s work first hand. My conclusion? Without question, one of the most talented plastic surgeons in the country.”
Dr. Lee was educated at some of the world’s top universities and trained by pioneers in aesthetic breast surgery, facial rejuvenation and migraine surgery.

After residency, Dr. Lee was fellowship-trained in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery at Harvard Medical School's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
