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

When I lost weight a while ago, I also lost my D cup and went down to an A cup. It sucked. I couldn't wear low cut shirts, because my breasts were like hanging flapjacks. I couldn't go on dates because I didn't want any guys to look at me. My sisters both got their augmentations done by Dr. Niccole and I finally went in to see him and felt like I found home. The surgery itself was easy as far...

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

As a professional body builder, my physique is important. It's also important to me to look and feel womanly and not manly as I build and train. After breast feeding my two babies, my breasts lost their full D cup size. It was always really tough to train my outer thighs, too, because they were genetically thick. I decided to get some help through a breast augmentation and thigh liposuction....

They Sealed the Deal. Corona Del Mar, CA

I've always had a really athletic body and big breasts, but they were saggy like an old lady's. Twenty years ago I got an augmentation from Dr. Niccole and it changed my life. My breasts fit my body and looked amazing. More recently after I gave birth to my son, I was exercising and something tore in one of my breasts, so I went in for a mastopexy and implant exchange. It was a big surgery,...

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

I had my first breast augmentation 12 years ago by Dr. Niccole. It improved my comfort and confidence drastically. I'm a size 4/6 and I have an hourglass shape, but the augmentation made me proportional on top and I haven't had to buy the kind of clothing to create the proportion for me. In November 2015, I was Spartan training with my son and I got a hematoma in one of the breasts. It didn't...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Nightmare Turned into Dream Come True. Newport Beach, CA

Another surgeon botched a tummy tuck severely. My stomach area turned black with necrosis. The surgeon tried using a wound vac, which he'd never had experience with before. He replaced the dead skin with skin grafts, which also turned black, and I needed the wound vac again. It was a total of 13 surgeries, leaving my stomach looking like a patchwork quilt and my belly button all the way to the...

I went to about seven plastic surgeons before I finally decided to go with Dr Nicolle. I wanted the best! I was extremely nervous and excited at the same time. He made me feel very comfortable and spent time explaining my procedure . My recovery was smooth and his staff is amazing! I feel beautiful!! I highly recommend him!

He Keeps Putting Me Back Together. Newport Beach, CA

I am a three-time breast cancer survivor. I've had breast cancer three times since my 30s, and I just turned 60. For my first two times with cancer, I had two partial mastectomies by Kaiser. They put in implants and there were multiple complications with them because of radiation and my body rejecting them. They also stabbed one during a procedure and there were other problems. Dr. Niccole...

Comfortable Tough Love - Newport Beach, CA

I'd had my first implants put in in 1984, when they used to put them in under the muscles. They turned hard as rocks after I was in a car accident in 1989. Finally, in 2000, my husband encouraged me to get them done again. My girlfriends all went to Dr. Niccole because he is just the best. He made me as comfortable as possible, with a difficult and complicated surgery to fix and exchange the...
