Non-Invasive Liposuction in Philadelphia, PA

Do you have unwanted fat deposits, despite having a healthy diet and an exercise routine? Do you want to look good in that bikini, or desire a more sculpted look? Liposuction targets those common “problem areas”: The abdomen, love handles, arms, back, thighs, chin and neck. This procedure does double duty – reducing fat and tightening the skin. All without surgery. The results are permanent, and you get a firmer, more sculpted body.

LUMEN is pleased to offer Renuvion® skin tightening, which can maximize your treatment results. It’s a non-surgical belly fat removal alternative to a tummy tuck that further contracts the collagen in your skin and tones fat deposits. This revolutionary minimally invasive procedure shrinks and sculpts mild to moderate sagging skin.

Liposuction Before and After

What Is Non-Invasive Liposuction?

Non-invasive laser lipo reduces fat and contours the body without the need for surgery. Lipo not only removes stubborn fat and tightens skin, but is used for sculpting the body to reveal a smooth, more natural appearance. Unwanted fat that is removed in treated areas may also be used as filler for a facelift or transferred to the buttocks for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.

The Laser Liposuction Procedure in Philadelphia

The procedure completely avoids surgery. Only small nicks (“freckle indents”) in the skin (no stitches) and a tiny injection cannula are needed. Local anesthesia is administered, similar to what is provided at a dentist office. Recovery time is fairly short with most patients back to work after 3-4 days.

Depending on the number and size of the areas, the procedure lasts approximately three hours and steps include:

Candidates for Non-Invasive Liposuction

You may be a good candidate for Liposuction if:

Some patients have larger or multiple areas to address, which can be effective with laser lipo. The procedure is not for everyone and is not a treatment for obesity or intended for weight loss.

Body Contouring with Lipo 360 and Lipo 360 BBL

One of our most popular procedures is Lipo 360, which contours and shapes the entire midsection – the abdomen, flanks (love handles), and lower back. When liposuction is performed on the front and sides of the midsection, the Lipo 360 body contouring procedure produces a natural-looking, balanced, and proportionate appearance.

If you want a fuller bottom in addition to a shapelier, more toned midsection, then a Lipo 360 BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) can help you achieve that vision. A BBL is a fat transfer procedure that repurposes the fat harnessed during your Lipo 360 procedure. The benefit of combining these procedures is that it sculpts the waistline and gives you that beautiful S-shaped curve. Lipo 360 with BBL provides more definition between the waistline and buttocks, highlighting your natural contours and best features.

Hair loss is not an easy topic for most men of any age to deal with but, unfortunately genetics will always be the true factor for your current hair thinning / loss problems. I am 33years old and been dealing with my own form of hair loss “receding hairline” for a few years and was on the fence for a very long time on getting help for my situation. My advice to anyone having any hair loss or thinning problems would be to involve yourself in some research about what procedures there for your current hair issues. Look into PRP, the Neograft and the Artas all three forms of hair regrowth / restoration procedures can improve your hair situation. Seek out help sooner than later, meaning when you see any changes in your hairline or etc. talk with a hair professional to discuss your concerns and options to improve your hair stability. In fact I had a consultation at the Lumen Center with Dr. Kwak over the summer of 2023 to discuss what the Lumen Center could offer given my receding hairline problem. Later on I did schedule for a NeoGraft procedure September 2023 were they took 2,500 grafts. Between the Dr. Kwak , receptionist techs, hair techs, Rob and Shanna are beyond welcoming during my entire experience . My experience was great the Lumen Center staff are so personable but professional throughout my entire experience and continuing treatments. I am about 4months post op and results of my restoration is visual at this time. I decided to continue the PRP treatments post procedure as an option to continue having a healthy scalp for my remaining and restored areas. I’m truly pleased with everything it’s just a waiting game for the months to come. If you are like me and are unsure about what to do or just maybe on the fence about your current hair troubles please just give the Lumen Center a call there team will guide you to way that best suits you. Lumen’s Way has an artists touch that makes them stand apart from other competitor hair restoration companies. The Lumen’s Way is the way to go!! Thank you Lumen staff I really do appreciate this experience and everything you have done for me this far. Respectfully, Cody

I got smart lipo on my stomach (abdomen and flanks). To be honest, there are places with better prices in the city—but I believe the premium is worth it. For starters, the staff are just so kind and incredibly responsive. I wish all of healthcare would mirror the customer service at the Lumen Center. The surgery was performed awake. Overall, I would say the pain was bearable, and I am very sensitive to pain. However, there were definitely moments where I struggled. The workers at the Lumen Center said encouraging words the entire procedure and even held my hand. They played music I liked. They seemed just as excited about the results as me. Dr. Kwak himself is a very kind man with a quiet disposition. After the procedure, the staff continued to be incredibly responsive to my every question. They were readily available via text and by phone call. Immediately after the surgery, I had multiple follow ups where Dr. kwak ensured that I was healing properly and gave me instructions to follow at home. The entire time, I knew I was in good hands and felt safe, and for this reason I say the premium at the Lumen center is 100% worth it. This is an invasive surgery, and even if it is cosmetic, is incredibly risky. To be able to trust the person doing it is priceless. My results were amazing. Unfortunately to preserve anonymity I would prefer not to post photos, but I saw a huge difference in my before and after results. My clothes all fit better, and I feel so much more confident. Getting this procedure gave me the encouragement I needed to pursue healthier eating habits and to overall love myself.

Everything was perfect! From the check in to getting my service. Everyone was helpful and professional! Would highly recommend the Lumen center 😊

The Recovery Process

The recovery process and downtime for the Liposuction procedure is fairly short with most people only taking 3-4 days off from work. Mild associated discomfort and bruising is common. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for one month.

Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

The first step is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kwak to discuss your goals, concerns and questions. He’ll determine if you are a good candidate and review what you can realistically expect. We’re here to help guide you in your body contouring journey.
