Procedures to Enhance
In Bellevue and Seattle
You’ve made a decision…it’s time to do something dramatic about your appearance. You’ve been working out hard, eating all the right foods, and you’ve lost some weight. You look in the mirror in frustration.
Time and gravity have caused your neck to droop, creating a double chin and sagging jowls. Your stomach only flattens so much and your love handles just won’t budge any further– you’re at an impasse. ProLipo PLUS™ may be the answer!
In 2001, Dr. Fredric Stern became one of the few cosmetic surgeons in the Puget Sound and Seattle area to offer microcannular tumescent liposuction, using the smallest instruments available, performed under completely local anesthesia.
In this video, Dr. Stern explains his “Three-Laser”
Laser assisted Liposuction Technique
With the advent of power-assisted liposuction devices, Dr. Stern then combined the use of microcannulas with the enhanced fat removal capability of the PowerX™ power- assisted system.

Dr. Stern is First with Erchonia™ Low- Level Laser
With the FDA approval of the Erchonia™ low- level laser in 2003, Dr. Stern was the first cosmetic surgeon in the Puget Sound area to perform laser -assisted liposuction using this new, FDA-approved device. In FDA trials, the Erchonia™ laser demonstrated greater fat removal, less post-op discomfort, less swelling and quicker recovery than traditional liposuction techniques.
Combining these three advances, Dr. Stern is the first cosmetic surgeon in the Seattle/Bellevue region offering both internal and external laser-assisted liposuction surgery. This revolutionary advance in liposuction surgery offers all of the advantages of microcannular tumescent liposuction— small incisions, no sutures, minimal down time— with the enhanced fat removal capabilities of the new Zerona™ low level laser and the state-of-the-art fat melting and internal skin tightening effects of the dual wavelength ProLipoPLUS™ laser!
And just like simple microcannular tumescent liposuction, Dr. Stern’s dual laser technique uses the same small cannulas and may be done under completely local anesthesia.
Depending upon your individual case, the state-of-the-art Zerona™ low-level laser may either be used alone to perform incision-free, no down time liposculpture, or as a way to greatly enhanced fat removal during liposuction surgery, as discussed above.
For those with a moderate amount of loose skin, we also offer post-operative treatments using our SkinTyte™ laser to maximally firm and tighten your skin.
Lumpy, Bumpy, Dimpled Skin?
Dr. Stern is one of the first cosmetic surgeons in the United States to offer the CelluSmooth™ body contouring procedure; a minimally invasive laser treatment targeting lumpy and dimpled skin in troublesome areas such as the thighs and buttocks.
Body Contour Enhancement
Whether you elect to undergo our state-of-the-art dual laser assisted liposuction surgery, or our new no incision Zerona™ laser liposculpture procedure, Dr. Stern counsels that liposculpture and liposuction are contour enhancement procedures, not weight loss methods, nor are they substitutes for a healthy diet and a consistent, vigorous exercise regimen.

“I have always had a fascination with lasers. More than any other invention, lasers have revolutionized surgery, particularly the field of cosmetic surgery. I especially enjoy combining the science of lasers with the art of cosmetic surgery to help my patients feel better about themselves and enhance their self-image.”
