5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Now I Can Wear Cute Lacey Bralettes! - Corona del Mar, CA

I went to Dr. Niccole because I wanted fullness, not increased cup size. I wanted to look like I was wearing a pushup bra without wearing one but to look natural. So, I didn't tell the doctor what size I wanted. I let him interpret what I wanted and he got it, spot on! I'm so happy with how it turned out, especially after they dropped a bit. I can now wear those cute lacey bralettes and sports...

Feels So Good to Be Happy to Be Seen. Corona Del Mar, CA

Dr. Niccole is incredible, especially compared to the surgeon I consulted with before him who took one look at me, told his assistant what kind of implants I needed, and then sent me out within five minutes. I'd felt too self-conscious and shy to ask questions with the other surgeon, but I felt completely natural asking Dr. Niccole questions because I knew he welcomed them. He wanted to know what I was thinking, and then offered suggestions, and we fed off each others' ideas to come up with the perfect implant size and shape for me. It was so comfortable talking to him, it was like talking to a friend.

A Body Builder with Physique Needs. Corona Del Mar, CA

Dr. Niccole astonished me. I didn't expect him to be familiar with my situation as a body builder, but when he looked at me, I barely had to say anything, he knew what I was looking for and how to accomplish it through surgery. I had a feeling I could trust him because my good friend had referred him to me and she's had surgeries from him for years. But the key for me was how he took the time during consultations and appointments to get to know me through small talk and joking around. Then he dives into asking and answering the bigger questions of the specifics of procedures. I'm still enjoying the results of his incredible work.

They Sealed the Deal. Corona Del Mar, CA

Dr. Niccole did my first breast augmentation when those kinds of surgeries usually made breasts as hard as baseballs and they would leak. But his work was so natural and lasted longer than usual. The day I was having my mastopexy and implant exchange, I found out that my nipples were going to be entirely cut off and put back on, and the incision was going to be down the front side so it looked like an upside down "T". I would've been freaked out by that, but since it was Dr. Niccole, I didn't bat an eyelash. I knew he was going to do it easily. He's all about doing excellent work and wants the best for his patients. I've referred people to him and later heard things like he recommended against doing a nose job because they didn't need it, or that he won't go as big as they want because the proportions would be wrong for the person's body. Most plastic surgeons would push their patients to get the most expensive job, no matter what. That's why I've sent over 40 people to him, including my own mother.

An Improvement, Not Just a Repair - Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Niccole was fierce in his concern for me. I called the office and got an appointment to see him the very next day. He said that I was leaking blood and could be septic, so he put me on antibiotics. It was a Tuesday and he insisted that we do the surgery on Thursday. He noticed the look on my face. It wasn't an expense I was planning on, Christmas was coming, and I told him I had a final for school on Thursday. He said that education is important, but my health was more important, and he was really concerned about getting this taken care of.

Nightmare Turned into Dream Come True. Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Niccole is amazing. He knew how much I'd been through and was always reassuring me that the surgery wasn't going to turn out the way the other ones had. Fixing my belly button was not main purpose of the surgery, but he said he could not leave my belly button looking like that. Dr. Niccole lifts my spirits. Speaking with him is different than with a typical doctor, and I've been exposed to a lot of doctors because both my parents are doctors. I feel so comfortable with Dr. Niccole, like I'm sitting with a friend who really cares. And he's so funny. He and my husband would high five at the mention of enjoying my new body. Finding him is like a dream come true.

43 Years Old 4 Children. Newport Beach, CA

He is experienced, professional and made me look beautiful!

45 Yr Old W/ 10 Year Old Tummy Tuck - Newport Beach, CA

I went back years later to question doggie ears and he wanted to charge again to correct. Aside horrible customer service, I went else where to fix his work. Right side of incision is higher then left. Doggie ears are more noticable on right side due to this. Great guy just wouldn't go back or recommend any of my friends to go back.

He Keeps Putting Me Back Together. Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Niccole selected me as a recipient for his clinic's Magic Mirror program and his colleague Dr. von Maur did a beautiful fat injection on my breasts. After my third bout with cancer and a double mastectomy with Kaiser, I was in the ICU for four days and two weeks in the hospital. One of my breasts turned black and Kaiser was just going to cut it off, because they said it was dead. Dr. Niccole said no way - it was not dead, it was going to come back and he said not to let them touch it. By then, I had known him long enough and had been through enough with him to know that I should always listen to him. So I didn't let them cut it off. Dr. Niccole was right. It came alive again and filled with blood. He fixed it, and now it looks almost as perfect as the other one. In my eyes, he can do no wrong.

Comfortable Tough Love - Newport Beach, CA

I really had wanted to just go on forever with the implants I'd gotten in 2000, because I felt good with Dr. Niccole's work and I liked the way I looked too. But Dr. Niccole put his foot down in his down-to-earth way and said he didn't want me to take any chances, and since it'd been 16 years, it was time to exchange them. I didn't know that, but I always trust him. This time, the surgery was smooth and I healed within weeks, with absolutely no scarring. I felt so good that I told Dr. Niccole I was going to go biking. I was surprised that he warned me sternly that I'd better not "do anything stupid" because he didn't want me to bleed internally or go back to the operating table. So I'm happy to wait. I look amazing, and natural (at age 57, I didn't want them too lifted).
