Dr. Calvin Lee is a board certified general surgeon specializing in Botox, dermal fillers and acupuncture.  Both surgeons at Surgical Artistry are graduates of Brown University Medical School.  Dr. Lee, originally from New York City, was accepted to Stanford University and Harvard University.  He practiced broad based general surgery that included trauma at Doctors Medical Center in Modesto until 2006. 

As a violinist, he performed at Carnegie Hall twice.  He is currently teaching himself piano and won a piano competition for piano teachers in Beverly Hills and as a result performed with orchestra in Los Angeles in 2015.  He has lectured for Allergan (makers of Botox, Latisse, Kybella and Juvederm) and he has become an author of MedicalSpaMD, a resource for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and aesthetic physicians.  In July, 2015, he was the first surgeon in central valley to be chosen to be certified and to inject Kybella for double chin.

About Surgical Artistry

We are a husband-wife surgical team and we can take care of you together.  We chose Modesto, CA to become extremely busy surgeons.  High volume, we believe, is one of the keys to practicing surgery at its highest technical level.  We do surgery and talk about it all day long.  We love Modesto.  We are founders of the Gallo Center for the Arts, founding title sponsors for the Surgical Artistry Modesto Symphony Pops Series / Surgical Artistry Modesto Symphony Fat Cat Classics 2006-2009, and founding title sponsors for the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon. 

Since 2010, due to the cosmetic nature of our practice, Surgical Artistry does not accept medical insurances for any of the services provided by Dr. Wu and Dr. Lee.

And of course, we are founders of Surgical Artistry in Modesto, CA.  Welcome to our home-made web page which was originally created in 1999.  We try to update it when we find some free time between plastic surgery and acupuncture related activities.


Dr. Tammy Wu Plastic Surgery Services include:

We have many plastic surgery before and after pictures available for private viewing at our office.  You can call us to make an arrangement to see them.  For the privacy of our patients, we prefer to keep the photos offline.

Get to know us better and keep in touch via FaceBook  FaceBook for Surgical Artistry, Plastic Surgery in Modesto, CA - we would love for you to "like us"

Our favorite and most popular is the "Personal" FaceBook page.

  • Our "Personal" FaceBook - Everyone is welcome!  "Add us" for some of the more exclusive (but fun) discussions.  But you will see pictures of cats, piano playing, marathon attempts, teaching biology, cooking, being vegan, plants, and our attempts at our own healthy living / self-improvement.  And there will be chats on plastic surgery, Botox, and acupuncture.  These topics are our lives.  1804 friends as of 4/20/14.

  • Our "Business" Plastic Surgery FaceBook - somewhat boring, but it's popular, we had some giveaway contests on here before.  We'll talk about Surgical Artistry, Obagi, Lasers, skin care, plastic surgery, Botox, veins, and acupuncture.  Historically people had a hard time finding our plastic surgery FaceBook through a Google search (because there is a generic one created automatically on FaceBook which won't go away, but shows up first in the search), but this is it. 1622 likes as of 4/20/14.

  • Dr. Lee's Botox FaceBook - not popular, there's only about 30 people on this page.  Regarding the lack of popularity, it's the page, not the doctor.  But feel free to "like" this page too so Dr. Lee doesn't seem so isolated.  I (Dr. Calvin Lee) currently don't update this page as much. This page has been kept a secret (until now).
