This website below has been made a long time ago and the information is probably somewhat out of date.

About this webpage:  This webpage is more about the behind the scenes of how a plastic surgery practice was built.  This is very different from other plastic surgery websites that talk about the medical aspects of plastic surgery (we'll add a few links about the medical practice just to round out the discussion).  This website is more about the imagination, sweat equity, and financial aspects of a plastic surgery practice and is intended to help those across the world who are striving to build their plastic surgery practices.  We are a two person medical group (husband and wife doctor team).  Dr. Tammy Wu is a board certified plastic surgeon, and Dr. Calvin Lee is a board certified General Surgeon. That's just a little about us.  See more about us in the links below.  Of course we are very passionate about the medical aspects of plastic surgery.  We have included some of those links here as well.  If you want to see more of our clinical plastic surgery visit these websites:  Tammy Wu, Modesto Plastic Surgeon (has her plastic surgery practice statistics for the year 2007) and for specific plastic surgery issues - we have a listing of our more popular plastic surgery websites

How did we come up with that name for our Plastic Surgery Modesto practice?

Modesto Plastic Surgery Resources


Surgical Artistry Plastic Surgery resource pages

This website for Modesto Plastic Surgery focuses more on the start-up aspects of a plastic surgery medical practice.  The raw materials and the financial knowledge needed, and the breaks that need to happen to prevent burn-out.  Just like surgeons and musicians need to take frequent breaks to prevent overuse injuries such as Carpal Tunnel.  This website is mostly about sharing the info gained from starting a medical practice - more of the business and mental side, less of the medical stuff (if you want to see more of our medical practice go to this webpage:  Modesto Plastic Surgery.  We have been in Modesto, CA since 2003 and started Surgical Artistry in 2006.  It's our hope that you will learn from some of our experiences.

Medical Start-up websites

San Francisco Resources (Modesto is about 1.5 - 2 hours away)

For us, going to the symphony is a great diversion while working on start-up issues of our Modesto plastic surgery practice. Diversions are important for inspiration, sharing of ideas, and most importantly for burn-out avoidance.

The very First Step - How to become a doctor?

Well, before all this one needs to be grounded in the basics of medicine (ie - become a doctor first)

Here's a video Brown University requested from Dr. Calvin Lee to see what advice he had to give students interested going to a career in medicine:


I made this video at 3am in the morning in September 2009.  I don't think I was at my best, but it's done.  This raw video will then be edited by Brown University and used for their course:  So, You want to be a Doctor?  This is a pre-college course for possible future doctors (including surgeons, medical acupuncturists and plastic surgeons!) - there is an online 10 week version of the course and a 3 week on-campus summer version of the course.  Dr. Calvin Lee was one of the first teaching assistants for this course at Brown University in 1991.
