    Right Quote 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. Right Quote

    Right Quote 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. Right Quote

    Right Quote 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! Right Quote

    Right Quote 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! Right Quote

    Right Quote 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!!! Right Quote

How does liposuction in Walnut Creek work?

Liposuction has become a popular way to target and eliminate stubborn areas of fat. Some areas of the body such as hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, neck, chin, arms, and calves may not respond to even the most rigorous diet and exercise programs. In some cases, liposuction can even be used for breast reduction. There are different types of liposuction available each with different benefits, costs, and risks. When you decide to improve your body image and self-confidence with liposuction in Walnut Creek, CA, trust Dr. Christine Lee. She is an expert in the field and has the latest technology available to her patients.

Liposuction works by targeting isolated areas for destruction and removal of unwanted fat cells. In some cases, Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is used to liquefy the fat cells before they are removed. The most common method of fat cell removal is Tumescent. In this procedure, a small tube gently vacuums the unwanted fat cells from just below the skin.

The newest liposuction procedure, Liposonix, can eliminate unwanted fat without surgery. This procedure uses highly focused ultrasound to destroy fat cells. This procedure works wonders for areas such as love handles and the abdomen. In most cases, this treatment will not require downtime and the results are permanent. Once the fat tissue below the skin is destroyed, your body will process and remove the fat from your body over the then next 2 to 3 months. The only requirements are that you must have at least one inch of fat in the area to be treated and your body mass index must be less than 30.

Liposuction surgery and Liposonix treatment are not replacements for a healthy lifestyle and are not intended as a weight loss program. However, these procedures can eliminate the stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Christine Lee wants to help you look and feel your best.
