About Dr. Kristen Yee

Steven Williams, MD Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Yee is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, specializing in cosmetic, reconstructive, and Craniofacial surgery.

Dr. Yee is a board certified plastic surgeon, trained and certified to perform both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries for the entire face and body. She believes in enhancing your natural attributes for the best results.

Dr. Yee is dedicated to excellence in surgery and patient care. She is uniquely qualified and has refined her aesthetic eye and skills through her work in areas as diverse as Northern California, LA and Paris.

Dr. Yee was strongly influenced by her mother, an artist, to appreciate the visual arts and hone an aesthetic sensibility. She earned her medical degree at Johns Hopkins, and completed her surgical training at UC Davis and UT Health Science Center in San Antonio.

During her plastic surgery training she enjoyed using her artistic background and became particularly interested in craniofacial surgery, for its complexity and unique effect it has on changing how patients perceive and are perceived in the world. She pursued her craniofacial surgery fellowship at UCLA, one of the premier centers for this unique subspecialty.

She has maintained an interest in international health, and periodically travels abroad to perform cleft lip/palate repair and other plastic surgery for patients in underserved areas.
