About Us

John Scaffidi, MD, FABOM, FACOG, and Maneesh Ailawadi, MD, FSSO, are pioneers in the field of bariatrics. Lehigh Valley Weight Loss, Women’s Health & Aesthetics 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 to get rid of areas of stubborn fat, muscle toning Emsculpt to enhance body shape as well as skin tightening and remodeling Morpheus8 to improve saggy, crepe-like skin, fine lines, creases and stretch marks that often occur after weight loss or with aging. For all of this he recommends office-based, minimally invasive procedures, which can be used on your neck, chest, back, arms, legs, hips and thighs. SmartLipo and BodyTight are well known because they remove stubborn areas of fat and sculpt your body, they tighten the skin at the same time. Dr. Scaffidi is skilled with scarless breast lifts, another office-based, minimally-invasive procedure which corrects sagging or dropping breasts and nipples. 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 office-based, noninvasive, pain free, take less than an hour, and have the great advantage of no downtime. This vaginal tightening has also been shown to improve vaginal lubrication as well as incontinence.

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.

Dr. Scaffidi provides iViVa•Solutions, an all natural nutritional therapy delivered intravenously or intramuscularly, available after months of research and testing. This is commonly used for people striving for improved health, whether to help avoid the next virus or simply to have more energy throughout the day. It is extremely safe, effective and restorative and is used for age management, increased immunity and illness prevention, energy boosts, detoxification, hair/skin/nail improvement, chronic fatigue, aches and pains, mental effectiveness and focus, stress relief, athletic enhancement and recovery, menstrual or menopausal relief and it can even increases passion, pleasure, and performance for those intimate moments.
