What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can help remove stubborn areas of fat from the body. When pockets of fat in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, neck, back, arms, or elsewhere, fail to react to healthy diet and exercise, liposuction at our office in Edina serving the entire Minneapolis / St Paul area can provide a safe and effective alternative. It should be noted that body contouring should not simply act as a replacement to a healthy lifestyle. However, this procedure is an excellent body contouring option should you be unable to shed pounds due to genetics or other factors.
As a board certified cosmetic and plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher J. Kovanda has the training, skill, and experience to provide safe and effective liposuction body contouring procedures. Our office in Edina serve the entire Minneapolis / St Paul area with comprehensive liposuction evaluations.

Liposuction Before & After
The Liposuction Procedure
A surgical tube called a cannula is used during the liposuction procedure. It is through this tube that fat cells are removed. In the consultation appointment with our cosmetic surgeon, you can discuss your overall cosmetic goals and the specific area or areas you would like to target with liposuction. Dr. Kovanda performs the advanced Power Assisted Lipoplasty form of liposuction. This procedure involves the use of a special cannula device; one with a high frequency reciprocating cannula designed to break down the fat, making it easier to remove. Because fat is removed more easily during Power Assisted Lipoplasty, less bruising and trauma occur than during traditional liposuction, making it a well tolerated procedure with a quicker recovery.
Liposuction has been performed for over 30 years, during which time many new advancements have been developed. Liposuction’s popularity continues to grow as more and more people decide they no longer need to live with stubborn pockets of fat.
