When considering Laser Liposuction surgery as an option, the best candidates typically have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Excess fat in mild to moderate amounts
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity

Skin starts loosing collagen and elastin from about age 35.  Resultant skin laxity may not be conducive to liposuction alone.  


Liposuction can treat these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Male Breast Excess
  • Back rolls


When first introduced liposuction surgery was heralded as a revolutionary step for modern medicine. And after several decades of being a leading procedure in the field of body fat removal it has become an old and trusted friend. But one of the cornerstones of modern medicine is progress. As it is throughout medicine, deliberate and far reaching steps were taken that didn’t just improve an old and trusted way of practicing medicine but replaced the old way with a safer and more modern method.


We often get questioned on the cost of Laser Liposuction compared to Traditional Liposuction. The savings are significant based on several factors:

  • With SlimPro Laser Liposuction you do not need to put put under with general anesthesia, which is a substantial cost savings.
  • Your procedure is done in our state of the art, certified office rather than a surgery suite or hospital, which offers significant savings.
  • Your procedure is considered a day surgery, meaning you do not need to stay overnight at a hospital for monitoring and pain management.  This can save thousands for those who would need to stay the night.
  • You will be back to work and back to your normal routine far quicker than with traditional liposuction, many the very next day, saving your hard earned vacation time or sick time.

In order to determine an accurate price Dr. Kovak would like to meet with you in person to understand your needs and desires as well as accurately access your individual situation.  There are many treatment areas available and each have a different price based on the area size and severty of the case.  We encourage you to schedule a consultation at Kovak Laser Institute to determine the cost of your particular case.

Weight can be a focal issue in your life and fat deposits clearly contribute to the dilemma but it doesn’t have to be. The matter of weight doesn’t readily translate to being overweight, undernourished or obese. It really comes down to having an ideal weight and a healthy body that you can maintained through proper eating, exercise and a healthy body image.

Most people are not averse to having cosmetic surgery to look and feel good. One popular procedure that they go through is liposuction. The procedure generally removes excess fat deposits from specific parts of the body and it involves highly invasive steps to carve out the shape of your abdomen and other fatty areas. Today, the industry of cosmetic surgery has devised procedures that can be cost-effective compared to the traditional liposuction procedure and is minimally invasive to the patient. One of these procedures is the laser liposuction treatment.

How is Laser Liposuction Better than Traditional Liposuction?

Your downtime is very minimal with minimal bruising. You can return to work and your regular activities soon after your procedure! Further more, laser liposuction also tightens skin through the heat produced with the laser. Traditional liposuction does not have this heating/tightening feature, that would require additional office visits and fees.

Does Laser Liposuction Require General Anesthesia?

No.  One of the best things about laser-assisted liposuction is that it does not require general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Kovak strives to keep is patients very comfortable during the procedure with liquid anesthesia put directly into the area being treated. However, we can arrange for a board certified anesthesiologist to attend you if you prefer.
