Text Box: Surgical Artistry For Runners
excerpted from our Marathon Brochure
Breast Implants for Runners
Being a runner herself, Dr. Wu specializes in helping runners with breast augmentation surgery.  There are special considerations for athletes and runners (such as under/over the chest muscle, interference with arms) which Dr. Wu introduces on www.breastguide.com.  Click on the link for “running with breast implants.”
Tummy tuck and Liposuction
Contrary to some popular belief, tummy tuck and liposuction are not weight loss procedures.  They are body contouring procedures which get rid of the very last stubborn “remains.”  We encourage regular exercise for several months before providing tummy tuck surgeries and liposuctions.  We also provide “mommy makeovers” which are personalized combinations of several body contouring procedures.  Each person is different, please call us at 209-551-1888 for a consultation.
NIA 24 skin care to reverse some sun damage
Runners can spend a good deal of time in the sun.  NIA 24 products contain a patented niacin molecule which has been found to reverse DNA damage caused by sun damage (which leads to earlier aging of the hands, chest, shoulders, and face.).  We love these products.  We hope you will too.  NIA24 also makes a great sunblock.
Sigvaris Athletic Recovery Socks
Helps to reduce lactic acid buildup, and reduces recovery time.  Surgical Artistry guarantee on the socks—if you don’t like them for any reason, bring them back within 30 days for a full refund.
Acupuncture for muscle pain & weight loss
Dr. Lee performs acupuncture for a variety of ailments ranging from allergies and stress to constipation and fertility.  Runners have various over-use injuries that can also benefit from acupuncture which is a way to reduce inflammation and speed recovery.  As for weight loss, it can speed up metabolism and decrease appetite.
Botox to relax facial muscles & reduce wrinkles
There are many happy runners.  And happy people smile a lot.  But smiling, combined with aging skin and sun exposure, causes wrinkles around the eyes called crows feet.  Botox can help lessen the appearance of crows feet around the eyes.  And you can of course still smile!  Botox can be used in other areas of the face and to reduce underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Clarisonic Brush
We have many skin-care products such as Obagi, Skinceuticals, Colorescience, Arnica, and fat shrinking creams.  But Clarisonic is the most fun.  It is a hi-speed brush similar to the Sonicare toothbrush, but it’s for the skin.  We carry the deluxe 4 speed model (only available at doctor’s offices) with body brush.  It is waterproof and saves time! Runners can use the extra time for their workouts. Because we are an authorized Clarisonic vendor, we are able to offer a  three year warrantee on the brush.
