Caitlyn Jenner is getting a lot of love from fans lately, and now she's giving some back. Recently, the 65-year-old E! star took time out of her schedule to thank one of the doctors that helped her with her transition.
Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, shared a signed copy of her recent Vanity Fair cover, where she debuted as a trangender woman, with Dr. Harrison Lee, People is reporting. Lee reportedly performed Jenner's facial feminization surgery giving her the look that she now identifies with.

"To Harrison, Great Job Thank you so much Caitlyn Jenner," the signature read.
The moment was shared on one of Lee's employee's Instagram accounts. Dr. Lee, a Los Angeles-based cosmetic surgeon, said the immense pressure of having all eyes on his work was not lost on him.
"I entered [the surgery] with some trepidation of course," he told New York Daily News. "I figured it was gonna be very challenging because of her celebrity status and the fact that she's going to finally expose herself for [who] she is, and it'll be one of the most judged faces on the planet."
Dr. Lee worked closely with fellow plastic surgeon Dr. Gary J. Alter to help Jenner with her transformation into a more feminine physical look. While Lee focused mostly on her face, Alter was responsible for Caitlyn's body.
"She's extremely happy with the results, and we are too," said Dr. Alter. "I thought she looked absolutely beautiful."
Caitlyn's decision to gift her surgeon her Vanity Fair cover photo is an appropriate gift as it was almost universally well-received by Jenner's fans. It even spawned the recent "My Vanity Fair Cover" movement on social media, giving transgendered people a chance to photoshop themselves on the magazine's cover to showcase the many faces, bodies and personalities that make up the transgendered community.
