Allura Laser-Assisted Liposuction in Bellevue and Seattle
As a pioneer with over 16 years of experience in laser-assisted liposuction techniques in Seattle, Bellevue and the eastside, Dr. Stern and the Stern Center are excited to offer the latest advance in laser-assisted liposuction using Allura laser. Allura is a minimally invasive, ultra high- powered laser system for performing laser assisted lipolysis. The laser melts unwanted fat, allowing Dr. Stern to finely sculpt your contour and permanently remove a greater amount of fat than would normally be removed during a traditional liposuction procedure. In addition, the Allura laser stimulates the collagen, resulting in significantly greater skin contraction and tightening than traditional liposuction.
The procedure is performed under completely local anesthesia, with incisions so small no sutures are required. Downtime is minimal, and most individuals resume normal work and daily activities in one to two days and workouts in one week.
Whether or not you elect to undergo our state-of-the-art Allura laser assisted liposuction surgery, 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.
What are the benefits of laser-assisted liposuction?
Unlike traditional liposuction, with laser-assisted liposuction, the fat is liquified before it is suctioned out of the body. In addition, the laser is inserted again at the end of the procedure in order to tighten the skin. Since the laser fiberoptic is so small, the incisions do not require sutures and can be performed under local anesthesia.
What is recovery like after liposuction?
Most of our patients feel surprisingly energetic immediately after surgery, comfortable enough to leave after a brief stay in our recovery room. Mild drainage from the tiny incisions is normal and lasts for several days. Bruising is generally mild to moderate and may last up to several weeks. Most patients return to work and normal daily activities in a few days and resume workout 1-2 weeks after the procedure.

At the Stern Center, we can help you put your unwanted fat to good use!
Scientists have discovered that body fat has the largest resource of adult stem cells in the human body. A new scientifically backed service offered by The Stern Center and American CryoStem takes your Adult Stem Cells from your adipose tissue (the body fat removed during a standard liposuction procedure), and cryogenically freezes it for future uses in Regenerative Medicine therapies as well as cosmetic applications such as ATGRAFT™ fat transfer.
