Dr. Lee is the ONLY Las Vegas Physician to WIN the 1st Place Award for all 4 of the Top National Cosmetic Injection Competitions in the USA--in direct competition with hundreds of the country's Top Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists, from Beverly Hills to New York City.
He was recognized as America's Top Cosmetic Injection Award WINNER to help you "Look Younger, Without Surgery," Internationally selected as one of the Ultimate 100 Global Aesthetic Leaders in the world by MyFaceMyBody. Dr. Lee is also an Internationally Published Aesthetic Medicine Author, National Lecturer, Physician Instructor, and a USA Leader in the field of Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Medicine.
In 2001, Garry R. Lee, MD, opened his Clinic, dedicated to Helping You Look Younger, Without Surgery.
When Botox first became available for wrinkles in 2002, no one was trained to use it because Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists could not be legally trained in the USA prior to FDA Approval.
Aware of its potential, Dr. Lee was among the first to learn this and other non-surgical cosmetic techniques. He discovered the very BEST Plastic Surgeons were in SURGERY most of the time--having delegated their lower profit non-surgical treatments to their assistants. He was surprised, however, to find that Plastic Surgeons were charging more than their own assistants, who actually did these non-surgical procedures full-time. The rationale was that since they were Surgeons, their compensation must be commiserate with their training--if not their actual experience and skill at doing this procedure.
Upon realizing doctors were NOT specializing in this, Dr. Lee decided to dedicate his entire practice to Helping You Look Younger, Without Surgery. He believes that anyone who does non-surgical procedures part-time--will find it difficult to be more skillful than those who do non-surgical cosmetic procedures full-time.
Currently, of the ~700+ Botox and Juvederm Clinics here in the State of Nevada, Allergan--the manufacturer--only selected ~3 Physician and Nurse Instructors--including Dr. Lee, who has been teaching doctors and nurses for them since 2008.
Dr. Lee is the WINNER of: 1) The Best Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year in the USA for 2019 for MyFaceMyBody, the Largest and Most Recognized Aesthetic Awards Program in the World; 2) The TOP Aesthetic Doctor in the USA for the Aesthetic Everything Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards, presented in 2019 at the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, CA.; 3) The 2018 National Award WINNER for the Best Non-Surgical Makeover of the Year for MyFaceMyBody, judged by Plastic Surgeon Paul Nassif of TV's Botched among an International Panel of Judges; and 4) the WINNER of the Best Facial Injectable Enhancement Physician Award in the USA in 2015, endorsed by Plastic Surgeon Andrew Ordon of TV's The Doctors.
Moreover, he led the USA to take 2nd Place in the WORLD Competition for Best Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation among 31 of the Top Physicians from 5 continents at the Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine European Congress (AMEC) in Paris, France.
Dr. Lee retired from all competition in 2020--after WINNING the Top 4 Cosmetic Injection Competitions in the USA--to focus upon the very best care of his own patients.

"I'm so glad to have found Dr Gary Lee! He is a perfectionist! Punctual. His office is serene! As my career and life was ripped from me, he was very supportive of my struggle. Only those who saw me at top, and were there to see me act in mode of pure intention, truly understand all I've been through. Losing my home, stability is nothing compared to health, loved ones, and dream career. Dr Lee is cutting edge on technology. I feel I stay up to date with all dietary age reversal, on cellular level, and have read all about cosmeceuticals grade products by Dr Perricone, Peter Thomas Roth, etc.. Many exterior ingredients and herbs are same as those used internally. I've not been able to see Dr Gary Lee in 13 months! Last time I saw my good friends in Beverly Hills they were very pleased to see I was healthy, but said I'd aged 6 years in 6 months! I said I suffer disabling migraines with stomach pain. Between the two, it's hard to get much done, but I force myself. I don't trust anyone else. After seeing the greed and actual top surgeons in LA drug addicted, and abuse my insurance... I realised the few honourable men/women like Dr Gary Lee... Need much more recognition! And when I come out, truth prevails, he is in my gratitude list annually to repay tenfold his kindness, and professionalism!"
"I fly from Seattle just to get my Botox done at Look Younger MD. I've walked out of other doctors offices because their before and afters looked unnatural to me. Dr. Lee's results are the most natural looking I've ever seen. Nobody would suspect I get Botox and I have people literally not believe me when I admit my real age. Feels great to be able to age so gracefully. Thanks DR. Lee!"
"Dr.Lee and his staff are amazing! I had a free consultation and out went great he was very patient with me and answered all my questions and really took his time. I felt very comfortable and never felt pressure at all he really listens to you and cares. I was really scared I've never had any cosmetic procedure done before. I had cheek fillets which was virtually pain free! I was also scared about bruising and scarring because I tend to hyperpigmentate. I was slightly sore for 1 day no scars and no bruising. I can't wait for my next appointment! The result is natural and beautiful. If you want the best, Dr. Lee is the best their is! Im so glad I found him!"
"This was a great experience...I researched alot before I picked Dr.Lee..and he did not disappoint..I had Juvederm done..and it was painless!..Not only is he highly skilled at his profession(he teaches at conferences on microcannula/cosmetic injections), he also is very pleasant ,personable and genuinely cares...the front desk girls were so nice too ...I highly recommend him if you want to look younger...and want a painless,professional and pleasant experience."
"I have seen many cosmetic and plastic surgeons for fillers over the years and none of them compare to how detailed and talented Dr Lee is. Five stars for sure great price but most importantly great results."
