Here’s what you need to know:
1. Dr. Lee Was ‘Crucial’ Jenner’s Transformation
Dr. Lee was first named in an Instagram posting by one of his employees who referred to his work as “phenomenal.” Jenner and Lee appear in the pic with her now-famous Vanity Fair cover which she has autographed. TMZ reporting on the post calls Dr. Lee “crucial to [Jenner’s] transformation.”
2. Dr. Lee Reconstructed Christy Mack’s Face After She Had 18 Bones in Her Face Broken
First and foremost, as a trained surgeon, I believe that part of my occupation is helping people through giving back to those less fortunate. These occasions usually never hit the media spotlight because they are given freely for everyday people in need of assistance.
I do not believe in discrimination as to those I help based on gender, race, occupation or lifestyle. As part of the MMA community, I believe in giving back to those who may have been a victim of someone who potentially used their training for other than its intended purpose and cannot afford medical treatment.
Dr. Lee added that he felt a connection to the crime because he had trained in martial arts.
3. Jenner’s Surgery Cost $70k While the Average Transgender Person in American Earns $10k Per Year
Caitlyn Jenner’s surgery cost $70,000, according to Dr. Lee when he was speaking to E! News. According to Transequality, the average transexual in America has an annual income of less than $10,000. In a Guardian interview, trans-activist Janetta Johnson said:
Jenner’s a rich white bitch – she can pay for everything she needs. But I think she now needs to put some of that money back into the transgender community as she has taken a lot. All these years we have been abused and battered, yet she has used none of her power to help the community and bring about change.
4. Dr. Lee Specializes in Breast Enlargement
According to his Facebook page, Dr. Lee is based out of an office along Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. He founded the Beverly Hills Medical Center for Cosmetic Surgery and specializes in brow lift surgery, breast enlargement, and liposuction.
5. Dr. Lee Started Out as a Dentist
