"Dr Lèe was one of the Plastic Surgeons recommended by my Breast Surgeon specialist. I chose Dr Lèe believing he would be best suited surgeon for me. On my first visit I was warmly greeted by Michelle very soon after checking in I was greeted by another staff member Dana who brought into the examining room. Dana was professional, friendly&kind. I was nervous & uncertain about having reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy Until Dr Lee came into the room. Dr Lèe answered all the questions my husband & I asked. He explained the process & made me feel very confident knowing this would be the best possible procedure for me. I had 2 more appointments with Dr Lèe prior to surgery on both occasions Dr Lee’s staff was welcoming & kind. Dr Lèe took the time to walked us through what to expect on the day of surgery & after. He answered my questions & I always felt comfortable about my decision. I am 3wks postoperative & doing well. Thanks to Dr Lèe for his preoperative & postoperative instructions, care & that of his staff also. I’m very grateful for the wonderful care I have received to date & look forward to the final results."- D.G. / Google / Dec 23, 2022
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Emsella?
While urinary incontinence is typically associated with women, especially post-pregnancy, men have been known to have their share of incontinence issues as well. Ideal candidates for EMSELLA should not have a bleeding disorder, be pregnant, or have any surgical implants in their body. On the other hand, you may qualify for EMSELLA if you have:
- Urinary leakage
- Involuntarily urination when you laugh, cough, or sneeze
- Difficulty making it to the bathroom on time
- The immediate need to urinate as soon as the sensation hits you
- The need to schedule frequent bathroom breaks during the day
- Recurring urinary accidents
- Can also help with sexual health in both men and women
How Does Emsella Work?
Many alternative procedures require patients to remove their clothes or wear a paper gown. With EMSELLA, patients can relax in the comfort of their own clothes while undergoing the treatment. Once patients sit in the EMSELLA chair, Dr. Lee will turn on the device, which will begin to emit electromagnetic energy. Patients often report feeling a slight fluttery sensation as this energy causes their pelvic floor to quickly and consistently contract. As with any other muscle, these contractions build up strength, and in turn, grant increased control of the bladder. Though it might sound strenuous, this process is actually incredibly gentle. In fact, most patients find themselves comfortable enough to read a book or have a conversation until the treatment is over. In total, this process usually takes around 30 minutes, making it easy to fit into even the busiest of schedules.
What to Expect After Emsella
Due to EMSELLA's noninvasive nature, there are no restrictions associated with it. Patients are free to go back to their daily activities as soon as their treatment has ended. In order to further improve the results of the treatment, there are certain changes you can make in your everyday life. For example, we recommend for many patients to cut back on items in their diet that are natural diuretics, reduce caffeinated beverages, and ensure their medications are not contributing to their problems with incontinence.
Some patients report minor improvements after only one session of EMSELLA. However, multiple sessions will be required before patients are able to regain complete control of their bladder, though the exact number of treatments will vary from person to person. In most cases, our patients notice optimal results after six sessions. These appointments will generally be scheduled once or twice a week over 2 – 3 weeks until your pelvic floor has become strong enough that urinary incontinence is no longer an issue for you. In some circumstances, the strength of the pelvic floor may again start to deteriorate. In these situations, we usually recommend regular "maintenance" sessions in order to preserve its condition.
