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.
Facial Liposuction 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 local anesthesia.

Tumescent technique by Dr. Jeffrey Klein (left),
inventor of this procedure and one of the
leading liposuction experts in the United States
With the advent of power-assisted liposuction devices, Dr. Stern then combined the use of microcannulas with the enhanced fat removal capability of the Stars™ power- assisted system.
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.
New Liposuction Techniques
Dr. Stern and the Stern Center in Bellevue are excited to offer the latest advance in laser-assisted liposuction using Sciton’s new ProLipo PLUS™laser.
Combining these three advanced devices, Dr. Stern is the first cosmetic surgeon in the 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!
Heal in a matter of days
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. Most people are able to return to work and normal activities in days!
No incision, No downtime
Depending upon your individual case, the state-of-the-artZerona™ 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.
Whether you elect to undergo our state-of-the-art dual laser assisted liposuction surgery, or our new no incisionZerona™ 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.
Facial liposuction can make your face and neck look much thinner; like you’ve lost a lot of weight.
Why not look as young as you feel?
