Eliminate Stubborn Areas of Fat with Liposuction
Liposuction is an effective way to rid yourself of stubborn, excess fat deposits. It should not be looked at as a weight loss solution however. If you would like to enhance your body's natural curves with liposuction, we can help at the Fairfield County, Connecticut practice of Dr. David Passaretti.
Many people have areas of their bodies that are resistant to even the most rigorous diet and exercise routines. Normally, these areas include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, and face. Liposuction allows Dr. David Passaretti to surgically remove areas of fatty tissue that you are unhappy with, improving the contours of your body and producing a shape you will be proud to show off.

Dr. David Passaretti believes that traditional liposuction is the best option among all the liposuction technique options available today. For patients who are happy with their weight but are displeased with the excess fat on their body, liposuction can provide drastic results.
Ideal candidates for liposuction are in general good health, have good skin tone, and are no more than 25 pounds overweight. Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss surgery; rather, it targets specific areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Candidates should have realistic expectations about what the surgery will and will not improve. These expectations can be established with Dr. Passaretti and his team during a personal consultation.
The Liposuction Procedure

Video: Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction surgery is offered at the Fairfield County, Connecticut office of Dr. David Passaretti. It is safe, effective, and in most cases, minimally invasive. In short, a cannula is inserted into the body to remove unwanted fat deposits. The details of liposuction surgery will be explained to you prior to your treatment so that you can decide if liposuction is right for you.
Typically, the procedure starts with the administration of an anesthetic so that patients remain comfortable and free of pain throughout the procedure. Then, Dr. Passaretti makes small incisions in the area of the body that is to be treated. He inserts a small instrument called a cannula through these incisions, using it to break up the pockets of fat and gently aspirate them from the body. His approach is one of extreme control and precision, making sure that the results look natural - never artificial. After he has achieved the desired degree of fat removal, he closes the incisions with sutures, and the patient is ready for recovery.
Some specialized liposuction techniques that Dr. Passaretti employs at his Fairfield County, Connecticut practice are:
- Tumescent liposuction, which uses the injection of a saline solution to “firm up” fat so it is easier to remove from the body.
- Ultrasonic liposuction, in which a specialized cannula emits ultrasonic energy that liquefies the fat before it is suctioned from the body.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction creates a slimmer, sleeker physique that generally improves a patient’s overall self-confidence. When coupled with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as abdominoplasty, or breast augmentation, liposuction is incredibly transformative. Usually patients are able to return to their regular schedules after a short recovery period, making liposuction an easy option for those with busy lifestyles.
