Ben Lee, M.D.
“Plastic surgery is more than what’s on the surface. What isn’t as apparent is the impact we can have on a person’s well being. Time and time again, I have witnessed dramatic improvements in a patient’s confidence and well being after a relatively minor cosmetic or reconstructive procedure. As a surgeon, that brings me great joy.”
Proudly using his creativity to help patients regain a sense of wholeness and confidence, Dr. Ben Lee takes a very patient-centered approach to care. He is passionate about his profession and using his skills to impart a lasting, positive impact on the lives of his patients.
Dr. Lee received his bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology with highest honors from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He went on to earn his M.D. with highest honors from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, followed by his MBA from the University of Colorado Denver. He completed his surgical internship at the University of California at San Francisco. Going on to train in otolaryngology/head & neck surgery at Duke University Medical Center, working closely with the plastic surgeons during his head and neck residency inspired him to continue training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. After this specialized training, Dr. Lee went on to become Board Certified in Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Lee is a lifelong resident of Colorado and, when he’s not in the operating room or at work at his practice, he enjoys hiking, fishing and skiing.
“Cosmetic surgery is my passion because I am able to be a part of helping people look the way they feel inside,” says Dr. Lee. “Confidence inspires success.”
