Patient Testimonial:

Dr. Li, I will never be able to thank you for making me feel whole again. I love how I look in tops and can’t wait to wear a bikini this summer. I’ll be back to see you in a few years. In the meantime, I’ll continue sending friends and family. Love, Amy

Abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”)

With pregnancy, weight loss, or simple aging, the tone of the abdomen is lost beyond the reaches of exercise and diet. With a “tummy tuck”, the abdominal wall is internally tightened and the excess skin is removed to reveal a taut and shapely contour. See Photos


The most requested procedure by patients, this procedure allows for the selective removal of undesirable fat. Suction lipectomy may be applied to virtually any part of the body, thus allowing a new person to be sculpted from the old. With the latest techniques in fat removal, patients can rapidly appreciate their newly sculpted self with minimal discomfort and recovery time. See photos: Abdomen, thighs, back, arms, chin.

Fat Transfer

As we age we lose the fullness in our cheeks resulting in loss of volume. This translates into more prominent smile lines, hollowing, and jowling. Fat transfer restores facial volume giving a fuller and more youthful appearance.


When a patient has lost a tremendous amount of weight, often the upper arms develop excess loose hanging skin. A “tummy tuck” of the arms, removing the excess skin creating a slim silhouette reflecting their new thin self.

Thigh Lift

Massive weight loss results in a new trim figure, but often the skin overlying the thighs is saggy. A thigh lift trims off the excess skin, tightening and lifting the legs.


Cellulaze can greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite in just one treatment. This FDA-approved laser targets the cellulite from under the skin, breaking down the fibrous bands that cause the dimpling. The improvement will be seen right away with optimal results apparent within 3 to 6 months. Recovery is minimal, and results are long-lasting.
