Tammy brings this wealth of knowledge and experience to Oculofacial Plastic Surgery of Hawaii, where she works seamlessly and in close collaboration with Dr. Lee in surgery and in clinic.  She conducts new patient consultations, assists with post-operative care and suture removal, performs minor surgical procedures (e.g. lesion excisions and biopsies, drainage of chalazion/stye), and uses lasers and injections to reduce the appearance of scars. She is thrilled to be working in the field of oculofacial plastic surgery as an integral part of Dr. Lee’s clinical team.

Tammy also specializes in non-surgical aesthetic procedures, such as neuromodulators (botulinum toxin injections), dermal fillers, laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments.  She has attended numerous seminars and trainings on cosmetic injectables, but most importantly, she has trained under Dr. Lee’s meticulous tutelage.  She applies her gentle touch, attention to detail, and eye for aesthetics to help her patients look their absolute best using the same best practices techniques used by Dr. Lee.  She wants all of her patients to have their best and most pain-free experience possible, and she is typically available to squeeze patients in on short notice for “emergency” cosmetic procedures. 

In her free time, Tammy enjoys being a mom to her young daughter and Yorkie fur baby.  Having moved to Hawaii as a California native, she enjoys discovering new restaurants, hikes, and everything there is to love about living in Hawaii.
