Body Overview

Many women and men struggle with diet and exercise-resistant fat. This may result from previous weight fluctuations, pregnancy, poor diets and other unhealthy practices, or genetics.

If you are struggling to attain the trimmed and toned physique you desire, body contouring procedures with Dr. Charles Lee may be able to help.


Whether from genetics, the natural aging process, or lifestyle choices, many Asian men and women carry around extra fat in different parts of their bodies. This can cause them to feel self-conscious about their appearance. CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps reduce extra fat in the body. CoolSculpting® can be used to treat the abdomen, inner and outer thigh, flank, upper arm, and under the buttocks (banana roll), as well as back and bra fat.

During the procedure, the CoolSculpting® device is placed on the treatment area. The cooling technology of the device targets and freezes fat cells, causing them to die. Over the next three weeks, the body naturally processes and eliminates these dead cells from the body. Often, two to five treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart, are recommended for best results.

CoolSculpting® leaves Asian patients with a healthier, more toned and trimmed appearance. Additionally, there is no downtime associated with this procedure. Results are not immediate and will develop gradually as the body eliminates the damaged cells.

Stubborn fat in the inner and outer thighs, arms, waist, calves, and back plague many Asian men and women. And no matter how strict a diet you follow or how much you exercise, some fat just doesn’t go away. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that can help minimize this fat.

For liposuction, a thin tube, called a cannula, is inserted through the skin to where the stubborn fat sits. The fat is then broken down with the cannula and vacuumed away. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with other procedures. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure can last anywhere from 15 minutes to three hours.

While this is not meant to be a weight-loss procedure, Asian men and women will be left with a thinner, more contoured physique after liposuction. Additionally, once the fat is removed with liposuction, it is gone for good, making this a very popular procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Many Asian men and women are disappointed with the look and structure of their backsides, and, sometimes, exercise does not provide the results patients search for. It may be skinny and flat, and they may desire larger and more proportioned buttocks. Luckily, Brazilian Butt Lift augments the size and shape of the butt so that you can show off your new, shapely behind with confidence.

Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat-transfer surgery. Fat is taken from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or inner or outer thighs using liposuction. This extracted fat is processed, purified, and then injected into various places of the butt to improve shape, fullness, and lift.

After your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you will have a fuller, more shapely backside. Clothing should fit better, you will feel more confident in your appearance, and, because of the liposuction fat transfer, you will have reduced some fat from troublesome areas of your body. In the end, it’s a win-win.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world. It involves using breast implants to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts. For Asian patients, Dr. Lee usually recommends saline breast implants to add breast volume and minimize scarring.

Most patients can resume work and light activities within two weeks of their breast augmentation procedure. Final results may take up to six months to become visible as the implants settle into place.
