Even the most confident men among us have areas on their bodies that are not to their liking. If you have isolated fat deposits that refuse to budge with diet and exercise, the solution may be liposuction. This body contouring technique breaks down fat and extracts it with machine-powered suction.
When diet and exercise are not enough to give you the lean, toned physique you desire, liposuction may be the next step. Dr. David Passaretti helps men realize their full potential through carefully honed male liposuction techniques. He artistically sculpts the body, targeting adipose tissue beneath the skin, resulting in a leaner profile and enhanced visibility of the musculature. The Aesthetic Center is a nationally recognized practice for men seeking liposuction in Fairfield County.
Liposuction is a moderately invasive surgical procedure that treats resistant bulges of fat. It works by macerating the fat cells and removing them from the body with a cannula hooked up to a suction device. Designed for patients that struggle with stubborn fat deposits that remain despite a healthy lifestyle, the procedure is a powerful body tool that shapes and tones the male body so it appears more streamlined and athletic.
Male liposuction is a cosmetic sub-specialty. Unlike the techniques used to perform liposuction on women, the goal of male liposuction is to reduce adipose tissue while maintaining a chiseled, masculine appearance. Men typically have more squared physical features than women, so instead of creating rounded curves, Dr. Passaretti utilizes his artistic talents and knowledge of anatomy to reshape the body, so it resembles the ideal male form.
Male liposuction in Fairfield County does more than meets the eye. It extracts fat with extreme precision for a svelte, masculine physique that gets noticed for the right reasons. However, reducing stubborn fat pockets has another unspoken advantage. It also allows the underlying muscles to appear more toned once the fat layer obscuring them diminishes.
The combination of fat reduction and enhanced muscle visibility can significantly improve the male body and heighten perceived attractiveness. It is also an excellent way to put the finishing touches on your body after spending hours at the gym. The rewards keep coming as confidence escalates, allowing patients to feel better about themselves, so they get more enjoyment out of life.
Many men with difficulty targeting isolated areas of fat on the chest, abdomen, flanks, thighs, knees, or chin are eligible for the procedure. The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has good skin elasticity, and falls within a normal BMI range. Smokers and individuals with certain health conditions, such as bleeding disorders or diabetes, may not be the best candidates.
The best way to determine if the procedure is in your best interest is to speak with a qualified Fairfield County liposuction surgeon. Dr. Passaretti will examine your areas of concern, ask questions regarding relevant health and lifestyle factors, and assess your skin quality to determine whether it is right for you.
The procedure takes place while you are under local or general anesthesia. Small areas, such as the submental region, typically require local anesthetic only. The procedure starts with Dr. Passaretti applying tumescent fluid. He then makes one or more small incisions in the skin, approximately the size of a pencil eraser. Next, he inserts a metal cannula to break apart the fat cells. The fat cells are then extracted through a hollow tube powered by machine-assisted suction.
CoolSculpting is gaining popularity as a liposuction alternative. Known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive procedure that does not cut or scar the skin in any way. The cold paddles selectively freeze the adipose tissue to the ideal temperature to cause fat cell apoptosis. The body excretes the damaged fat cells over time, leaving the target area slimmer. While CoolSculpting cannot provide as rapid or dramatic a result as liposuction, there is no downtime, anesthesia, or scarring.
Someone must drive you home if you underwent general anesthesia. Bruising and pronounced swelling may appear shortly after the procedure. It can take several months for all of the inflammation to resolve. Dr. Passaretti will advise you to wear a compression garment to speed healing.
As the swelling subsides, the results gradually begin to appear. The treated fat will not return so long as you maintain a steady weight.

The procedure is painless due to local or general anesthetic. There can be some discomfort afterward, but most patients find it is minimal.
Liposuction is a moderately invasive procedure. While rare, serious risks are possible even in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Dr. Passaretti will disclose all risks to you during your consultation. In the event of a complication, he is well-equipped to manage nearly any issue that should arise.
The removal of fat cells from the procedure is permanent, so fat generally does not return to the treated area. Therefore, we can consider liposuction as a way to permanently alter one's body shape. It does not, however, control your weight. If you gain or lose weight after the procedure, you will simply gain and lose it in your new, improved body, shape, and fat distribution.
Many people find their preferred or happy weight changes after liposuction because of their change in body shape. In other words, they had constantly been struggling to lose weight in one very stubborn area and ended up too thin in others. After the procedure, they may reset at a different, sometimes slightly higher, body weight and achieve the look they want. This makes them look a little healthier because they aren't too thin in some areas in an attempt to reduce stubborn areas.
Compression aids in skin retraction and reduces swelling after liposuction. Wear the garment daily as instructed. The garment should fit snugly, but it should not be excessively tight.
Most patients only need one liposuction treatment to achieve their desired results, although it can be repeated in the future if necessary.
Liposuction is an excellent complement to body contouring procedures such as tummy tucks, thigh lifts, arm lifts, or gynecomastia surgery.
The average cost of liposuction in Connecticut is $5,149. The size and number of areas treated are the main factors that determine pricing. More experienced liposuction surgeons in metropolitan areas typically charge more than novice surgeons, but it usually shows in the results.
A board-certified plastic surgeon has extensive training and experience in cosmetic surgical procedures, including liposuction and body contouring in general. You also want a surgeon who makes you feel at ease and whom you can trust to be honest with you. These are all factors to consider when booking your surgery.
