Permanently remove those unwanted bulges on common "problem areas" - the abdomen, love handles, arms, back, thighs, chin and neck. SmartLipo ("laser lipo") does double duty - it melts the fat away and tightens skin. All without surgery. Just one pain free treatment for permanent results.
"I was very satisfied with Dr. Kwak for both procedures he performed at different stages in my quest to a better body. The staff at The Lumen Center was very professional, friendly, and helpful throughout the entire procedure."

Dr. Andrew Kwak is one of the most experienced surgeons in the country, having performed hundreds of these procedures annually since the inception of this device more than 10 years ago.
Previously serving on the Penn Center for Human Appearance, he has been instrumental in the development of energy-assisted liposuction devices, developing and lecturing on new ways to sculpt the body and face with minimal invasion.
Dr. Kwak has been referred to as “an artist” by his patients for his keen eye for aesthetic detail and producing dramatic, natural-looking, yet not “overdone” results that get noticed.Learn More
Smart Lipo Body Contouring is proven and effective laser lipolysis that accomplishes a lot in one treatment. It not only removes fat and tightens skin, but SmartLipo also sculpts the body for a smooth, more natural appearance. The procedure is easy and completed in approximately 3 hours, depending on the size of the area. Best of all, downtime is minimal and you achieve a maximum result.
SmartLipo has revolutionized liposuction, the gold standard of fat reduction. But there are key differences between these two main types of liposuction.
Traditional liposuction is typically more invasive, performed under general anesthesia, has noticeable scarring and a long recovery, and doesn’t have skin tightening benefits.
SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive procedure using innovative technology that optimizes body contouring and skin tightening. It is performed under local anesthesia, so you are completely awake. Incisions are the size of a freckle, which means faster healing and little to no scarring. Recovery is fast and normal activity is typically resumed in 3-4 days.
The area to be treated is infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic. Then, a very small 1-3mm (“freckle mark”) incision is made in the skin. A tiny cannula (tube) containing a laser fiber is inserted that emits laser energy directly to the fat cells. This causes the fat cells to burst and the liquified fat is gently suctioned out of the body. The heat from the laser results in less bleeding, swelling and bruising. This means you heal faster and there are no stitches. The Smart Lipo laser also stimulates the growth of collagen, which will continue to tighten your skin.
