Montreal Plastic Surgery Clinic
History of our Plastic Surgery Clinic
Dr. Chen Lee initially partnered with a colleague to build a private plastic surgery clinic in Montreal. In 2010, they jointly opened a private clinic near the Atwater metro station at the corner of Wood Avenue and Sainte-Catherine Street West. Soon after, Cosmetic Surgery Montreal was founded at this same location. Presently, Dr. Chen Lee directs the clinic.

Cosmetic Surgery Candidate
Cosmetic plastic surgery is unlike traditional surgery which is customarily performed for patients with physical disease, illness, or injuries. In contrast, cosmetic surgery is intended for physically healthy individuals. Its objective is to relieve emotional or psychological distress resulting from one’s physical appearance. A typical candidate for cosmetic surgery is a person who believes that a specific part of their appearance can be “corrected” and has a strong desire to take advantage of this correction. Whatever the reason for choosing cosmetic plastic surgery, it is important that the patient has realistic expectations. “Correcting” your face or body can increase the sense of well-being, but it is not a guarantee of happiness. Cosmetic surgical procedures are not miraculous therapies devoid of risk. It is real surgery with all the associated drawbacks and perils of traditional surgery.
With cosmetic surgery, communication between patient and surgeon is essential. The surgeon must assess whether the patient’s desires are feasible and realistic. Similarly, the patient should evaluate the physician’s qualifications, ability, and proficiency to inform. Dr. Chen Lee is a board-certified specialist in facial plastic surgery, breast enhancement, and cosmetic body contouring. Dr. Chen Lee will listen attentively to fully understand the outcome you desire from plastic surgery. A complete understanding of your goals will better enable Dr. Chen Lee to facilitate a safe and rewarding plastic surgery experience in Montreal.
