Liposuction is the number one body-contouring procedure for individuals who have managed to get back in shape but cannot seem to eliminate the last stubborn layer of fat. Natural Image OC and Dr. Sikorski is your number one source for liposuction body fat removal in Orange County. We take pride in our ability to create beautiful, long-lasting results and have successfully completed countless life-changing liposuction procedures.

- Corrects asymmetry or hereditary fat issues
- Least invasive body contouring procedure worldwide
- Creates a more tight and toned appearance
- Well tolerated procedure with rapid recovery
- Increases overall health
- Exact body customization
- Dramatic and immediate results
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction is not a quick fix for weight loss or obesity. The surgery is best suited for those who have a stable body weight (within 20 pounds of “ideal body weight”) and maintain a proper diet and exercise routine. The best candidates for liposuction surgery must be in good health and should have a comprehensive understanding of the procedure, including potential risks, benefits, and costs. A potential candidate must also maintain realistic expectations for the procedure.
What Should I Expect During the Liposuction Surgery?
Our trained professionals are experts at creating a comfortable and safe experience for every one of our patients. On an annual basis, Dr. Sikorski completes hundreds of successful liposuction surgeries. General, local, or twilight anesthesia administered by our experienced team is a quick and simple process. Natural Image OC promises to provide ultimate comfort throughout every step of the liposuction process.
During a traditional liposuction procedure, Dr. Sikorski will expertly mark and make a small and indiscrete incision in the treatment area. She then inserts a cannula (small suction needle) through the incision and carefully moves it back and forth to break up unwanted fatty tissues. Once the tissue is broken sufficiently, the cannula is used to suction the desired amount of ex-cess fat in thin, even layers, effectively contouring and shaping the face or body. Once Dr. Sikorski has achieved your aesthetic ideal, the incision is closed with stitches and a compression garment to help tissues heal.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive body contouring surgery and has little downtime. The procedure does not have to be done at a hospital and can be done at an outpatient surgery center. All liposuction surgeries are performed at Natural Image OC’s AAAHC accredited outpatient surgery center in sunny Orange County, California.
How Long Does a Liposuction Surgery Take?
Liposuction surgery usually takes about 2-3 hours but can take up to 3-7 hours depending on the anesthesia used, size of the patient, and amount of areas targeted by liposuction.
Areas of the Body that Liposuction Can Treat
Based on your unique needs, liposuction can be performed on multiple parts of the body and face. Areas that are popularly requested by our Orange County patients include:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Calves and ankles
- Neckline, cheeks, and the area under the chin
Liposuction is best suited for individuals with good skin tone and elasticity. Liposuction performed on individuals without adequate skin elasticity may result in loose-looking skin around the treated area.
Dr. Sikorski understands the reasons for undergoing liposuction surgery are very personal. There is no “one size fits all” method when considering liposuction.
