Surgeons advocate tighter control of liposuction in Connecticut

Connecticut plastic surgeons are meeting at the state Capitol complex in Hartford to advocate passage of the bill addressing security at medical spas.

They are holding a Tuesday news conference to emphasize the importance of patient safety requirements at medical spas, that offer a variety of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services including liposuction and Botox injections.

A bill before the General Assembly would give the public health commissioner regulatory supervision for these services and demand a state-accredited physician be employed to manage operations.

Everyone who violates the new regulations would need to pay a fine of up to $500 each day.
