5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

"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.

The Wind is Back in My Sails - Newport Beach, CA

Show More I got my procedure in two parts because Dr. Niccole was vigilant about my health. When I was on the operating table, he finished the lift, and then determined that it would be too tight to put the implants in. He only had a small window of time, or my nipples would be damaged if he didn't close me back up. It gave me a chance to see if I really did want the implants or if I'd be happy with just the lift. Well, I decided to get the implants and got them soon after. I trust Dr. Niccole more for not having tried to just power through. He played it safe with my health and his care for me as a person has been apparent in all his work.

Wanted to Get Rid of Gaining Bulk in Mid Section - Newport Beach, CA

Show More When I had the consultation with Dr. Niccole I could tell that he saw my body as an artist views a canvas or as a sculptor views the clay to decide how to mold it. He has a way of being very transparent and honest with me in a way that isn't rude. I wanted my flanks and abs done, but he suggested also getting my lats sculpted. That has made all the difference so it's better than I'd hoped for. Also, he has chosen amazing staff for his office. The receptionist is so friendly and available, and the nurses and anesthesiologist do everything in a very gentle way. They all know what they're doing because I didn't have pain or side effects from the anesthesia as I have before.

Bigger Is Not Always Better - Newport Beach, CA

Show More Dr. Niccole is very certain about what should be done in surgery, like strongly encouraging me to go smaller. And though he is strong like that, he manages to stay sweet. I also always get a real sense of his care. I called the office telling them that I found out through a breast exam that one of my old implants had a leak, and he made sure to fix it for me within two weeks. I'm pretty sure he put me on the top of the list because of his concern for my health.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Can't Wait to Wear My Bikini

Show More Dr. Niccole was great. One of the consultants, Kathy, told me that Dr. Niccole does amazing belly buttons, because a lot of surgeons who do abdominoplasty leave the belly button protruding and ugly. She was right. I cannot tell that he did anything with my belly button and the scar is disappearing. He also suggested to a less evasive procedure to remove the bags under my eyes, using fat injections. The anesthesiologist and Dr. Niccole put me at ease when I was so emotional. They went over all the details and assured me that it was going to be okay, and it was.
