Dr. Lisa Ohman Erhard
Owner / Directing Physician
With over two decades of experience in Women’s Health, Dr. Lisa Ohman Erhard knew there needed to be a change. Some of the treatment methods were becoming antiquated. Mainstream medicine was ignoring some of the incredible advancements and treatment therapies coming onto the market to enhance women’s lives. Women were being told time and time again to simply suffer with their symptoms after childbirth and menopause, and that their concerns were simply “normal.”
Female patients were losing their voice in the clinic and, in turn, were becoming more reticent and intimidated to talk about intimate concerns such as painful sex, vaginal dryness or the appearance of their labia after childbirth. Seeing the injustice in this, Dr. Lisa chose to become a pioneer and ambassador for women and started Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa.
Dr. Lisa Ohman Erhard is considered a champion to women over 40 in the Minneapolis area. As a Board-Certified OB/GYN & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 20 years of experience, she is an area expert in Pelvic Pain, Painful Sex, Vaginal Dryness, Leaky Bladder and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapies. It’s no wonder Twin Cities LIVE choses to feature Dr. Lisa monthly on their show as their “Straight Talk ‘in OB/GYN!”

Why did Dr. Lisa forgo a more traditional route in medicine to open Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa? Because she believes women deserve to lead lives full of vitality, health and passion REGARDLESS of what chapter of life they are in. That you deserve to look and feel beautiful. That you can and should enjoy a passionate and fulfilling sex life. And that you are entitled to providers that truly listen to you, educate you, and offer treatments that yield REAL results.
As a result, Dr. Lisa engineered the approach and treatment philosophy of Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa to be unlike any other clinic in Minnesota. Every facet of a woman’s health is taken into consideration when she comes under Dr. Lisa’s care. From the levels of her hormones, to her work/life stress level, her mental/social health and her overall physical well-being. Dr. Lisa believes that internal health manifests externally and that how we FEEL on the inside directly correlates with the beauty and confidence we exude on the outside.
Dr. Lisa has chosen to offer some of the most innovative and advanced treatment therapies to address her female patient’s most intimate concerns. She is the ONLY female OB/GYN to offer BOTH MonaLisa Touch AND ThermiVA in the tristate area. As these non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation laser work differently, she knew she wanted them both to be able to customize her treatments for her patients and get them the best results possible. In turn, Dr. Lisa has rapidly risen to become an Area Expert in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation and surgical labiplasty. She is constantly looking for new treatment therapies and techniques to be able to offer her patients the best outcomes possible.
Seeing that the concerns of an entire population of women was being ignored, those who have gone through chemotherapy and/or used Tamoxifen, Dr. Lisa immediately researched technologies to restore the gynecological health of these women. After many cancer treatments, women experience excruciating vaginal dryness and thinning of the vaginal walls that can lead to tearing. These conditions can make sex incredibly painful and severely impact a woman’s intimate relationships. Dr. Lisa is proud to offer MonaLisa Touch, the only FDA-approved device to treat vaginal dryness and offer relief to these patients.
Wanting to offer women even more ways to feel healthy and beautiful, Dr. Lisa expanded her expertise and practice offerings to include cosmetic injectalbes, such as Botox and dermal fillers, laser treatments and the body contouring. She was one of the first physicians to introduce SculpSure Fat Treatments to the Metro and quickly became an area leader in this incredible, and FAST, fat reduction treatment. Paired with Wayzata Cosmetic’s HCG Weight Loss Program, this offered Dr. Lisa another unique way to get women feeling healthy and sexy again, quickly!
Having four children of her own, being a wife, a full-time physician AND a business owner, Dr. Lisa understands her patient’s struggles with life balance. She prides herself in being able to slip into their shoes and make them feel heard and validated. In turn, she loves being able to raise them up and empower them through the treatments she offers and the amazing team she has created at Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery & Spa.
