Providing Tummy Tucks, Liposuction, and Body Lift
Body Contouring Fairfield County, Connecticut
Most people experience continuous changes in body shape throughout their lives. Factors such as age, pregnancy, weight loss, and weight gain can dramatically affect the figure. While diet and exercise can be successful up to a certain point, some imperfections are extremely difficult to remove without plastic surgery. Our practice in Fairfield County, Connecticut offers liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift procedures to reshape parts of the body that cannot easily be targeted with diet and exercise. These procedures are ideal for patients who are not necessarily seeking the "perfect body," but rather a more pleasing, comfortable shape they can be proud to show off.

Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure designed to eliminate excess skin near the stomach and repair weakened abdominal muscles. Candidates for tummy tuck surgery include anyone who is concerned with loose, sagging skin and unattractive bulging in their mid to lower abdomen. At our practice in Fairfield County, Connecticut, we recommend tummy tuck surgery for cases in which the skin has been irreparably stretched from weight loss, pregnancy, or other factors. With tummy tuck surgery, we can remove overhanging skin and tighten the abdominal muscles for a slimmer, flatter stomach.
When performed by an experienced professional like Fairfield County surgeon David Passaretti, tummy tuck surgery can produce remarkable results. As long as patients avoid significant weight gain, they can maintain the results of a tummy tuck for years to come. Though there is usually a small amount of fat removed during tummy tuck surgery, the goal of the procedure is not weight loss. For patients who have loose abdominal skin and large pockets of fat near the lower stomach, Connecticut surgeon, David Passaretti offers a combination procedure which involves both liposuction and tummy tuck surgery.

At our Connecticut practice, we use liposuction to remove pockets of fat in areas where the patient desires a smoother shape. Liposuction can eliminate fat near the waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, breasts, back, and arms. Advances in surgical technique also make it possible to use liposuction to sculpt the cheeks, jaw line, and neck. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures featured at our Connecticut practice, including tummy tuck, facelift, breast augmentation, and post-bariatric procedures. Where diet and exercise fail, liposuction provides a solution.
There are a number of new liposuction procedures available that offer more precision, improved safety, and better results. At our Connecticut practice, we use these improved liposuction techniques to give patients the slim, smooth shape they desire.

In many cases, liposuction patients have areas of their faces or bodies that could benefit from fat transfer. In this treatment, Dr. Passaretti removes fat from one area of the body using tumescent liposuction, and inserts it elsewhere in the body. This fat tissue can restore volume to certain areas of the face, or fill wrinkles. It can also be used to correct dimpled or uneven results from breast augmentation and previous liposuction treatments.
Thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a procedure designed to eliminate excess skin near the inner and outer thighs and improve the shape of the legs. Patients who have experienced significant weight loss are often candidates for thighplasty. Younger patients with good skin elasticity may be better suited for targeted liposuction. At our Connecticut practice, a thigh lift can be combined with liposuction to treat irregularities in shape, including fat collected near the outer portion of the thigh, or “saddlebags.” Thigh lift incisions can sometimes be hidden in the natural skin creases along the bikini line. To find out if you are a candidate for thigh lift surgery, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Passaretti.

When skin becomes loose and starts to sag, a body lift can be used to trim away excess skin for a smoother, tighter look. Lifts can be utilized on virtually every area of the body, including the arms, breasts, stomach, thighs, knees, buttocks, and more. Patients can visit our Connecticut practice for a lower body lift, which combines tummy tuck, liposuction, and thigh/buttock lift, or a full body lift, which also addresses excess skin near the arms, back, breasts, and neck.
Though body lift surgery is becoming known as a treatment for patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery, it is also highly effective for men and women who find that their skin has become lax with age.
Like a full body lift, a mommy makeover targets more than one area of the body. Mommy makeovers are unique to each patient. Dr. Passaretti creates a custom plan to enhance body contours following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover can include liposuction, a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and breast augmentation. This treatment can give women a more youthful, refreshed look after having a child.
