"I was referred to Dr. Lee by my dermatologist after a surgery for skin cancer on my nose. Could not be happier with the outcome of the reconstructive surgery. I went in with a dime sized hole on the bridge of my nose. I came out 3 weeks later with virtually no scars and barely of trace of the surgery. Everything from the scheduling, consultation, surgery and efficiency of the office staff made the entire experience spectacular."- K.A. / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2020

Plan Your Procedure
Body Contouring Surgical Technique
After your consultation, Dr. Lee will create a body contouring treatment plan for you. This plan can consist of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create an incision that can be concealed by undergarments and to reduce unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Nonsurgical treatments are usually performed at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center without sedation. This may include laser skin tightening, liposuction, injectable fillers, etc.
What to Expect with Body Contouring
If you are having a surgical procedure, you will be sent home to heal and recuperate afterward. Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It is common for some patients to combine several surgical procedures on several body parts, which may require an overnight stay. Body contouring is meant to reshape the body, so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures, or both, you will notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined profile.
