In addition to superb surgical skills, our focus is communication.  Many of our consultations take about an hour to ensure that we become partners in your surgery and that we share the same goals.  In addition, our surgical patients have access to our cell phones to call with any questions, and email is also a possible means of communication. 

We are very comfortable with advanced technology, in fact this web page is made by Dr. Calvin Lee.  Our technology advantage also helps us in your surgical / medical care.  We only use the highest grade technology and the best materials in our practice.  Our high quality standard and accepting nothing but the best is our philosophy for our family, for our lives, and for our patients.

There are many other advantages of having a plastic surgeon and general surgeon working together.  The practice gets a fusion of ideas and techniques that benefit our patients.  For example, for breast cancer, Dr. Calvin Lee and Dr. Tammy Wu frequently work together to remove the cancer and then reconstruct the breast with plastic surgical techniques.  The doctors are always discussing ways to combine their talents. 

Even more special is the addition of Dr. Calvin Lee's acupuncture knowledge which adds a holistic and more natural approach to healing from your surgery.  Our synergy of acupuncture, general surgery and plastic surgery is very unique and found very rarely in this world.  Come experience it in Modesto, California.

If you are committed to self improvement and excellent health; Surgical Artistry is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Testimonials / scanned in cards - from our Patients



Why choose Dr. Tammy Wu for your plastic surgery?

  • Her consultations for many surgeries are very detailed, they can last from 1 hour to 1.5 hours.  This is direct one-on-one contact with Dr. Tammy Wu, the Plastic Surgeon, not with a representative.
  • We do not have any exclusive contracts with any of the breast implant makers (such as Mentor or Allergan/Inamed), prosthesis, or meshes.  She only chooses with our patients what is considered the best products for the patient and his/her unique goals - without regard to contracts or quotas.
  • Dr. Wu is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
  • She is a top intellectual and extremely skilled with her dexterity, and has extremely high standards for herself.  She graduated number one from her medical school (Brown University, Ivy League), scored over 95th percentile on several national tests for plastic surgeons, and graduated from a top Plastic Surgery training program (Southern Illinois University), where graduates have become chairmen at Harvard University Programs and Presidents of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  Formerly as a runner, she has won many races in her age group. 
  • She is a gifted communicator.  Language skills is her talent.  Besides being fluent in English, Chinese, and Taiwanese - Dr. Tammy Wu participated in a national French language competition (before medical school) and she placed 2nd in the United States for speaking French.  She has also worked as a reporter for a radio station at Brown University.  And currently she has been seen with multiple appearances on Modesto television stations discussing plastic surgery and breast augmentation.
  • She is a teacher:  She is currently on the staff of UC Davis as a Volunteer Assistant Professor.  She has also taught several rotating medical students, physician assistant students, and nursing students while working in Modesto.  She runs a program called Surgical Artistry Academy which teaches the community about medicine in general and cosmetic surgery.
  • She is a musician and pianist:  She is mainly self taught on the piano.  It gives her a chance to improve on her dexterity skills which translate into extreme precision in the operating room when performing breast augmentations.  She is an active supporter of the performing arts, especially via the Modesto Symphony and Gallo Center for the Arts.
  • She is an athlete:  Formerly as a runner, she has won many races (mostly 5k's) in her age group.  She has run 2 marathons in the past, several 10K's and half marathons.  With her interest in athletics, she is well qualified to discuss any changes or concerns in chest muscles function with breast augmentation, liposuction, or tummy tuck surgeries.  Visit her popular website for running with breast implants - a runner's guide to choosing and maintaining breast implants.
  • She is an expert with all aspects of breast surgery.  She performs not only breast augmentation surgery and breast augmentation revisions, she also performs breast reductions, breast cancer reconstructions, and nipple reconstructions.
  • Access to a general surgeon (Dr. Lee) for hernias discovered during tummy tuck.  General Surgeons specialize in repairing hernias.  Dr. Wu has easy access to Dr. Lee's expertise for hernias if they are found during your tummy tuck.  If we suspect a hernia prior to surgery we make plans to have your abdominal hernia surgery done at the same time.  If we discover the hernia during the tummy tuck surgery, we will consider fixing your hernia and make arrangements to bill your insurance.
  • Having two surgeons take care of you.  Dr. Lee is always available to offer his surgical skills (Trauma Surgery and General Surgery) in addition to Dr. Wu's plastic surgery expertise.  Many plastic surgery offices have medical assistants (we have those too), we have Dr. Lee to help in your surgeries and recovery.
  • She is very experienced.  See the next section on profile of Dr. Tammy Wu's practice.  Plus she has been an investigator for the new silicone breast implants.  She has been practicing plastic surgery since 1997, and has been practicing plastic surgery in Modesto since 2003.  When she came to Modesto, she worked at Sutter Gould as their only plastic surgeon.  She frequently saw 40 patients per day.  She started her own practice (Surgical Artistry, Inc) in February 2006 and was joined by her husband, Dr. Lee in June 2006.
  • She is a busy surgeon.  We believe that surgery is a performance art.  This means that large volumes of quality work (surgeries) lead to better results.  See the statistics right below in this pink box (Dr. Wu's one year practice profile).
  • Has been a patient herself.  She has been a consumer of plastic surgery procedures.
  • Patient safety is of highest concern:  She operates at hospital affiliated surgery centers and uses board certified anesthesiologists.  This way she has access to all the equipment and expertise available to a hospital, rather than have the operation be office based.
  • Surgeon accessibility:  Patients can receive access to Dr. Wu 24/7 via cell phone.  Dr. Lee is also accessible 24/7.
  • Emphasis on reducing pain:  She has ready access to pain reducing techniques.  Dr. Lee works in the office and routinely performs pain reducing acupuncture on many other patients.  Dr. Wu's brother is an anesthesiologist in Los Angeles, and has given much advice on pain management during and after surgery.  And she routinely uses long acting pain medicines (such as marcaine) injected into the surgical sites and at times will use pain pumps.
  • Her breast augmentation surgeon's fee is competitively priced.  Plus she has negotiated lowered rates at the hospital and with anesthesiologists.  Her surgeons fee as of 6-23-08 (not including hospital or anesthesia or implants): ranges from $3200 - $4400 (prices will change, please call our office:  209-551-1888, we can give you the ranges of the entire operation with implants included which currently ranges from $5000 to $7500 for saline implants.)  There are certain cost advantages to having your surgery done in the Central Valley, California rather than in more expensive coastal areas.  She also does not mark up the cost of the breast implants nor does she mark up anesthesia or hospital fees.  These are all "pass-thru" costs to her patients.
