5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Hated My Nose. Now It's Beautiful. Corona Del Mar, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole was far more caring than the plastic surgeon who's done work on a lot of my family members. I could tell from the first that he and his staff were going to take care of me the whole way through. He didn't need a lot of description, just a little bit and he knew exactly what I wanted with my nose. He even offered to do more than I requested and fixed the tiny bump on my bridge. I was freaked out before going under and he came in to comfort me. That helped me so much. Even though he didn't spend a lot of time with me, when he was there he was very thoughtful and caring.

Bigger is Better for Me. Corona Del Mar, CA

Show More During the consult, Dr. Niccole showed me all the variations of before-and-after pictures with my body type and CGI images of what I would look like with different sizes. He knew I was interested in a drastic change and he said that usually people regret not going bigger. I'm so glad he gave me that information. I took it to heart and feel better having gone bigger. He was also amazing at calming me down before the surgery, because I was a wreck. Normally I wouldn't look forward to a doctor visit, but Dr. Niccole is so pleasant. He's always smiling and laughing and he has a way of making me feel comfortable.

Needed a Breast Reduction After Giving Birth - Newport Beach, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole is a perfectionist and he will take the time with me and answer my questions even if there is a patient after me, so I feel that he really cares. He's like an uncle. He didn't feel happy with my original reduction surgery and had me come in again to get the skin tightened a bit and the nipples fixed. When I was in the surgery room he came in all happy and smiling, saying he had just worked out and was ready to do surgery. It was only 5 a.m. so that reassured me that I was in good hands. He has a lot of energy and has been attentive to my needs.

No Pain, Lots of Gain - Newport Beach, CA

Show More I had the surgery on December 26 and one area wasn't healing as quickly, so Dr. Niccole was willing to see me on New Year's Eve. I find that outstanding since I think other doctors might have just let it go a few days, assuming I would be okay. From the beginning, I trusted him more than other doctors. The other ones I saw pushed me to go to a double D. Dr. Niccole understood I just wanted a little refresher and went with just a size up.

"Enhanced," Not Fixed My Body - Corona Del Mar, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole is really different than other doctors. I find most physicians to be serious and that makes me feel more nervous. Before my procedure, Dr. Niccole was so lively and animated and that lightened me up tremendously. I wasn't nervous anymore, just really excited to get my results from the surgery. He is always so encouraging. As a plastic surgeon, he could be very critical of my body, but instead his attitude is that my body is great the way it is, and he was just going to enhance it. He has encouraged me to not be so modest (unless I have to cover up for work). He tells me I should go out there and show off what I have. I've done that and it feels good to get admiring looks. It's very different from before when I felt practically invisible.

Wanted to Be Better Proportioned - Corona Del Mar, CA

Show More I think the recovery quickness has to do with Dr. Niccole's skill and experience. He was so different and far more confident than the other surgeons I interviewed. Plus, a few of my friends had successful surgeries from him and that gave me tons of confidence in him. In person, I just really enjoyed him. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is friendly and listens. He got what I wanted immediately and was able to give me "proof" by showing me pictures of patients with my body frame and height who had the same surgery so I could get a picture of what I'd look like, and I came out looking just like that. I can even wear a bikini and it looks perfectly natural.

Feeling Good About My Bikini Body - Newport Beach, CA

Show More Though I can be self-conscious about anyone seeing my body, Dr. Niccole never made me feel uncomfortable. I also felt like I could never ask a stupid question with him. Because I felt that freedom, I never felt uniformed about the process. I knew what was going to happen through the surgery every step of the way. I have had follow up appointments and Dr. Niccole always provides a pleasant visit. I know I have his undivided attention and he never rushes me.

Perfect the Way I Am - Corona del Mar, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole was so great when I went to consult with him that I knew I didn't need to look further for the right doctor. He has a great sense of humor and is so enjoyable to be around. He also listened to me and respected what I wanted. This was a contrast to another surgeon who tried to push me to get more work done and go bigger to up-sell me. Dr. Niccole only gently suggested that I might want something done down the road. But after the surgery he said I was perfect the way I was and I shouldn't get anything else done. I do have scars from other surgeries and an imperfect body, so that meant a lot to me. He also has a whole building and center, but doesn't charge more than the doctors who rent out rooms. I find that very commendable.

Looking 10 Years Younger Now, Easily! - Corona Del Mar, CA

Show More When I went in for the consultation with Dr. Niccole, I didn't know any technical language, but I knew what I wanted to look like. As I was describing it to him, I could see his "Aha!" moments. He said he knew exactly what to do to accomplish the look I wanted and that gave me confidence in him. And he knew what he was doing, because he did it perfectly, absolutely. He also was extraordinary with follow up. He called personally the night of the procedure, and followed up probably three times or more within the new few weeks. There's a month-out follow up and I have a four-month out follow up coming up. It makes me feel very confident and safe. I feel just amazing and go out a lot more now.

No Longer Self Conscious About My Top. Newport Beach, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole is a really special doctor. I've had a lot of doctors before and they usually don't even treat you like a person. They talk to their assistants and nurses as if you're not there. But Dr. Niccole really acknowledged me and talked to me almost like a friend. At the same time, he's been doing this for so long that he knew how to make me feel comfortable, even though it's not natural or comfortable to have to be topless in front of someone like that. He's really professional and understanding and supported me through the whole process.
