About Lehigh Valley Weight Loss

About Practice

“Get Healthy, Feel Good, Look GREAT!” is the motto of Lehigh Valley Weight Loss, with offices in Allentown and Easton, Pennsylvania. They have helped more than 10,000 people improve their health and well-being, and are the largest medical and surgical weight loss program in the area.  

John Scaffidi, MD, FABOM, FACOG, and Maneesh Ailawadi, MD, FSSO, are pioneers in the field of bariatrics and were the first to perform outpatient bariatric surgery in the state of Pennsylvania. Lehigh Valley Weight Loss is also the area’s only weight loss center that offers both medical and surgical bariatrics. It’s a truly unique full service center that provides patients with all they need to get healthy, feel good and look great! 

In addition to being the chief of medical bariatrics, Dr. Scaffidi heads the aesthetics program. Here he offers body sculpting to help contour and smooth your body in desired areas to get rid of areas of stubborn fat and skin tightening to improve the saggy skin that often occurs after weight loss. For this he recommends office-based, minimally invasive body sculpting with SmartLipo, which can be used on your abdomen, back, arms, legs, hips and thighs, as well as other noninvasive techniques. SmartLipo is well known because as it removes stubborn areas of fat and sculpts your body, it tightens the skin at the same time. Skin tightening and smoothing with cellulite reduction is best done with TempSure Envi which can be used on your entire face, neck, arms, legs, and body, virtually eliminating the need for surgical lifts, tucks or injections for many people. Dr. Scaffidi is also skilled with Precision Tx, another office-based, minimally-invasive procedure which corrects sagging jowls, jawlines and necks in under an hour. He also specializes in gynecologic aesthetics with both surgical and nonsurgical labial reductions (labiaplasties) and vaginal tightening (rejuvenations or vaginoplasties). The nonsurgical procedures are both done with Vitalia, which is office-based, noninvasive, pain free, takes less than an hour, and has the great advantage of no downtime. Vitalia vaginal tightening has also been shown to improve vaginal lubrication as well as incontinence.

As the chief of surgical bariatrics, Dr. Ailawadi runs the surgical bariatrics division, and as a board certified general surgeon and surgical oncologist he also offers many surgical procedures, including corrections for hernias, gall bladders, breast, colon, and most other cancers. 

Dr. Scaffidi, as a board certified gynecologist, also offers comprehensive gynecological care from routine Pap smears, contraception, and office based treatment for pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding to minimally invasive same day surgeries for more advanced and complicated cases.

For a well-rounded approach to weight loss, aesthetics, surgery and / or gynecology from an experienced team that cares, call Lehigh Valley Weight Loss today, or schedule an appointment using our online booking tool. Start your journey today and  “Get Healthy, Feel Good, Look Great”!
