Dr. David Passaretti offers ultrasonic liposuction at his private operating facility in Darien, CT. In many ways, this advanced form of liposuction is similar to traditional treatment. In addition to eradicating unwanted fat, ultrasonic liposuction first liquefies the cells with powerful sound waves. In this state, they will be easier to remove. As a result, the procedure will have less impact on your surrounding tissue, and you should experience very little discomfort. Dr. Passaretti is committed to patient safety, uses only proven ultrasonic instruments, and stays up-to-date in the latest treatment methods.
If you wish to eliminate stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for ultrasonic liposuction. The treatment can eliminate fat from most areas of the body. However, it is especially appropriate for larger or denser pockets of fat. Therefore, if you wish to address your back, thighs, sides, or similar areas, ultrasonic liposuction may be right for you. Dr. Passaretti offers several types of liposuction, including tumescent liposuction and SmartLipo™. Therefore, at your initial consultation, he will evaluate your needs to determine which type may be most appropriate.
The energy from the ultrasonic waves can tighten skin, giving you an even more toned and rejuvenated look.
Of course, to qualify for any type of liposuction, you should be in good health. The procedure may not be suitable if you have a skin disorder, bleeding condition, or autoimmune disease. In addition, you should already be at a healthy, stable weight, as liposuction is intended to reduce stubborn fat pockets that have not gone away with regular diet and exercise.
Before performing ultrasonic liposuction, Dr. Passaretti will plan your procedure according to your particular cosmetic goals. He will keep you thoroughly informed during the planning process. That way, he can make sure that you are comfortable and that you will be pleased with the results of your treatment.
Your liposuction procedure will take place in our private, fully furnished facility, where we adhere to the strictest safety protocol. First, Dr. Passaretti will inject the treatment area with a tumescent formula. This solution will cause the fat cells to swell and the blood vessels to shrink. As a result, it will be easier for Dr. Passaretti to identify the unwanted cells. Then he will insert an ultrasound cannula through tiny incisions. The tool will emit high-power sound waves, which will melt and liquefy the fat before it is removed. In some cases, he may use stitches to close the incisions, but in many instances, they will heal on their own.
There are a number of reasons that Dr. Passaretti offers innovative ultrasonic liposuction. It will be easier for your doctor to remove fat without affecting the surrounding tissue. There should also be very little bleeding and reduced inflammation. This method can get rid of very fibrous pockets of fat from areas like the back, which would otherwise be hard to treat. Often, Dr. Passaretti can also eliminate a greater volume of fat. Thanks to the tumescent solution that will constrict your blood vessels, bleeding will be negligible. Lastly, the energy from the ultrasonic waves can tighten skin, giving you an even more toned and rejuvenated look.
As with all of our body contouring procedures, ultrasonic liposuction can provide natural-looking results and an increase in self-confidence. To find out if the treatment is a good option for you, call our office at (203) 405-2984 or contact us online to schedule a consultation.
