At Total Aesthetics, we specialize in non-invasive services.

Not all cosmetic procedures require surgery.

At Total Aesthetics in Westport, CT, we’re pleased to offer the latest injectables including Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau; injectable fillers such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm as well as PRP/PRFM, liquid facelifts, non-surgical rhinoplasty and Latisse. We also carry the entire line of products from Revance including their RHA-2, RHA-3 and RHA-4 fillers with 15-month longevity.

We believe that the results achieved with neurotoxins like Botox and injectable fillers are greatly dependent upon the training, experience and skill of the person performing the injection. Because of this, at Total Aesthetics, injectables are personally administered by Dr. O’Connell.

FaceTite / AccuTite

At Total Aesthetics we offer the entire spectrum of facial rejuvenation. Many patients simply aren’t ready for a surgical solution to fatty excess and tissue laxity and we now have an effective, minimally-invasive, alternative. Westport plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph O’Connell was an early adapter of FaceTite – the non-surgical facelift, powered by RFAL technology without need for traditional incisions or sutures. Best of all it’s performed in the privacy of our office without need for general anesthesia.

CoolSculpting / CoolTone

CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure in the U.S. We’ve been a top-tier provider since 2012 and we’re thrilled to offer the next dimension in body contouring. With Allergan’s CoolTone device, it’s no longer just about shape, – it’s also about tone and muscle definition! When regular exercise and a healthy diet just aren’t enough to eliminate those problem areas, Westport plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph O’Connell’s “Sculpt & Tone” regimen can give you the transformation you’re looking for through both fat reduction and muscle conditioning.

Botox / Fillers

Dr. O’Connell and has been a multi-year platinum-level provider of Botox. While the areas most commonly treated include the forehead, glabella and crows feet, as a master-level injector, Dr. O’Connell treats chronic migraines, bruxism, long-face syndrome and facial paralysis and he commonly injects areas like the eyelids, lips, masseters and necks that less-experienced injectors avoid. At Total Aesthetics, all neuroxin and injectable filler injections are personally performed by Dr. O’Connell.

Dr. Joseph O’Connell

New York Trained, Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

President, Connecticut Society of Plastic Surgeons 2021-2023

Unlike some plastic surgery practices that essentially offer only surgical solutions, my first approach is almost always non-surgical. This is because we’re in the self-confidence business, and I want my patients to look natural and unoperated. Today’s non-surgical technologies offer solutions to many conventional plastic surgery needs. In most instances, this approach is accompanied by shorter recoveries, less need for anesthesia, less risk and lower cost. What makes us unique is that when it’s time for the surgical approach, you’ve got the skill and experience of a renowned board certified plastic surgeon with over 35 years of surgical experience. While I was educated and trained in New York, I practice in my home state of Connecticut.
