Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to treat isolated areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as fat found in the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks, chest and back, calves and ankles, upper arms, and the neck and chin. In addition, liposuction is sometimes used for breast reduction. Liposuction can help improve your own self-confidence in your own body. Liposuction is not an overall weight-loss method or a weight-loss alternative.
There are a number of different kinds of liposuction treatments available today, and they all have their own benefits, costs, and possible side effects. Tumescent liposuction is the most common type of liposuction. With this procedure Dr. Lee uses a thin tube (cannula) attached to a vacuum to remove fat from under the skin. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) or laser-assisted liposuction is also available.
Liposuction can be the perfect way to remove selected areas of fat and regain the figure you desire. The resulting contour changes are dramatic and generally permanent – as long as your weight remains stable.

Definitely no one better in the bay area. I have been so impressed with her bedside manner and most of all with her results. If you want results then you should make an appointment right away.

Words can not describe how grateful I am to Dr. Lee for saving my face and honestly I would say my life. She's an absolute master and genius at what she does. I wouldn't even be able to show my face in public now if it weren't for her. I had the worst scars on my face that were so bad they scared other people. These scars were caused by a doctor who burned my face with a laser. I would have been happy just looking a little better but Dr. Lee was able to make my face look almost normal again. I can cover most of what's left with make-up now and most people can't tell what had happened to me. I still have internal scars from what that other doctor did but at least the outside scars are pretty much gone. I wish I had never had to go thru all this but I'm just grateful that there was someone like Dr. Lee who could help me get my face back.
Absolutely the best results. I wish I had gone to her first instead of wasting my money with no-nothing nurses are doctors who talk a good game but are merely dabblers. I got the results I needed and now look 15 years younger. She is a miracle worker!

She's the best doctor!
Dr. Lee treated my moles and also the moles on my 2 young girls with laser. They were very scared but Dr. Lee did a great job getting them to trust her. She was very patient and kind. AFter the first time, my daughters thought it was no big deal and were no longer scared. She did a great job removing the moles and we're all so happy! I wouldn't trust anyone else to treat me or my family. She's the best!

The only doctor who helped my rosacea
I have really bad rosacea and sensitive skin and haven't been able to find any doctor who can help me...that is, until I found Dr. M. Christine Lee. I've seen several other very well-known derms and spent tons of money trying to get my rosacea under control. I've had fotofacials, IPL, VBeam, you name it, I've had it. Nothing has really made a difference. I almost gave up until I found out about Dr. Lee from the online rosacea support group. I heard great things about a laser procedure she developed. I started seeing her over a year ago and have gone thru several treatments and I am THRILLED!!!! I feel like a normal person for the first time in my life. No more redness and burning. Her treatment has been a miracle for me. All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
About Dr. Lee
" Dr. Lee is direct and to the point; I like that she doesn't mince her words and tells you what she thinks is best for you. I was quite impressed with Dr. Lee the morning of my procedure when I told her that my husband said I could go ahead and get my upper abdomen done if I really wanted to, and believe me I really wanted to, why not right? I'm there! But Dr. Lee told me to wait that it wasn't necessary. Tell me how many Drs would say that? I cannot stress how happy I am to this day with the results. I also have to add that I met Dr. Lee when I was in my 20ies (I'm 42 now) and she was a godsend. I had some moles removed and the Dr who did the procedure really messed me up. He then sent me to a plastic surgeon who didn't help and that Dr set up a meeting with Dr. Lee. I had huge scars from the mess up on my upper chest that, as Dr. Lee thought, looked like gunshot wounds. Dr. Lee became my advocate to have my insurance cover the cost and fixed my scars with laser treatments over a course on months and months and I have to add that she invented the laser. If it hadn't been for Dr. Lee I would still have the horrible scars so it was a no brainer to go to her for my liposuction procedure. " - C Ferris
