Since establishing his cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery practice in the Lower Mainland, Dr. Adrian Lee, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, has served as part of the medical staff at Surrey Memorial, Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgical Centre, Royal Columbian, Eagle Ridge, and Peace Arch Hospitals.

As an undergraduate at the University of British Columbia, Dr. Lee was torn between a career in architecture and one in medicine. Architecture appealed to his creativity and love of design, medicine to his passion for biology and desire to help and heal. With plastic surgery, Dr. Lee found the perfect outlet for both his passions.
After his undergraduate studies at UBC, he went on to receive his Medical Degree from the UBC School of Medicine, where he graduated in 1995. Moving to Ontario, Dr. Lee completed his residency in Plastic Surgery at the University of Western Ontario and obtained extensive training in hand surgery with the nationally renowned Hand and Upper Limb Centre (HULC).
Dr. Lee returned to Vancouver to complete a combined fellowship in breast and cosmetic surgery. There he expanded his expertise at the UBC Breast Reconstruction Program, working with Dr. Peter Lennox and the late Dr. Patricia Clugston.
Married with three growing daughters, Dr. Lee and his family are avid downhill and cross country skiers and he is a passionate cyclist and triathlete during the non-winter months.
