Lipo Procedures from a Trusted Connecticut-Based Doctor
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or simply lipo, is performed by an industry leading plastic surgeon at our three Connecticut locations. This body-contouring procedure uses special surgical equipment, and suction, to remove excess body fat. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body such as:
- Cheeks, neck and chin
- Upper arms
- Back and chest
- Waist and abdomen
- Thighs, hips and buttocks
- Ankles, calves and inner knees
Liposuction can improve body contours and proportion, and help enhance self-image. It targets stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction may be used alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck or facelift.
Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure. Through small incisions or cuts, we place thin tubes to target and then suction out the fat. We may inject fluid into the area before we remove the fat. Or we may use ultrasound or a laser to liquefy the fat cells before we vacuum or suction them away.
Sometimes we graft the fat removed during liposuction into other parts of the body, such as the breasts or upper lip. This process is called fat grafting. Note that liposuction does not treat cellulite; the puckering skin often found on buttocks, thighs and hips.

Financing and Payment Plans
Because liposuction is considered an elective procedure, it is not covered by health insurance. And the cost of the procedure can vary greatly from patient to patient, based on body type and desired results. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards. We have also worked with CareCredit for many years to provide the best financing services available.
