There’s no shortage of plastic surgery in Orange County. (If you don’t believe us, just watch the video above!) But, Shannon Beador prefers to keep her treatments non-invasive cosmetic procedures.

And whether she’s indulging in a little light shaving or in a facial that perks her complexion right up, The Real Housewives of Orange County pal has been known to invite her Instagram followers into her treatment rooms — where she keeps it very real.

In a March 21 Instagram Story, a bare-faced Shannon announced: “I’m here with Titi at CosmetiCare. This is what 55 looks like, people. So we’re getting a HydraFacial, try to perk this skin up.” (Side note: Shannon isn’t the only RHOC pal who loves HydraFacials. Kelly Doddloves the peptide blast the service includes, and Emily Simpson is also a fan.)

Take a look at Shannon’s glow:

Photo: Shannon Beador/ Instagram

Nurse Titi called it. “You wish you looked this good,” she said to followers, during Shanon’s Story.

There are perks to having a glamorous gang of girlfriends. For example, Shannon Beador once got a hot tip about a platelet-rich plasma facial from her pal Tamra Judge. And Shannon’s outspoken cast member Kelly Dodd has given her a memorable, erm,  “beauty tip” as well. As you may recall, on one early morning in Ireland, Kelly suggested: “Why don’t you start shaving your frickin’ chin off, with all that hair on there?” (Relive the tiff in the clip above.)

Since that Irish scuffle, Kelly and Shannon have, of course, become close buds. But Shannon still jokes about the line — especially while she is, in fact, having her face shaved.

In a recent Instagram post, the Real for Real Cuisine founder filmed herself during a dermaplaning session. “Shannon back again with the cutest little white beard,” joked her aesthetic nurse. “It’s not cute,” Shannon protested, but the nurse said: “It is so cute. We all have it; it’s OK.” Shannon said, grimly: “So now I’m a face shaver. I’m a dermaplaner.”

In her caption, The Real Housewives of Orange County pal paid winking homage that infamous line from Kelly. “Who would have thought I would be thanking Kelly Dodd one day for pointing out that I had hair on my face…” she quipped.

Who would have thought, indeed? For more about Shannon’s beauty routine, scroll down to see the contents of her beauty bag.

Is it possible to get toned abs while taking a nap? The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Kelly Dodd is giving it a try. Kelly’s always up for taking her fans along via social media during her beauty treatments — remember when she tried microneedling and had the best caption about it?

Yesterday, Kelly got a jump on summer by visiting Orange County’s CosmetiCare to try CoolSculpting for the first time. It’s a non-surgical treatment that is said to freeze fat cells, which leads them to be naturally processed and eliminated.

If you’re wondering whether that hurts, Kelly makes it seem like a breeze in her Instagram caption.

“Anyone tried CoolSculpting yet? @woziemoore gave me my first treatment at @CosmetiCare_ today,” she writes. “She used the CoolSmooth applicator while I took a nap. Getting bikini body ready has never been so easy!”

She also filmed on Instagram Stories right before her treatment. “We’re working on Kelly’s abs, they’re already gorgeous. She actually wants to continue eating the way she wants,” CosmetiCare’s Rosie Moore said as she held the applicator. “They’re already gorgeous abs, but we’re going to get them a little tighter.”

Then they put Kelly in this contraption that Rosie said is “almost like a girdle.”

The whole treatment takes an hour and 15 minutes, which is when Kelly took her nap. Hopefully, she’ll update us on her CoolSculpting results!

Shannon Beador pledged earlier this month to set aside some self-care time to pamper her skin, and after trying dermaplaning, she’s now focusing on something a lot of us forget to moisturize: the neck. The Real Housewives of Orange County fitness fan went under the laser yesterday at Orange County’s Cosmeticare (the same spot where pal Kelly Dodd tried CoolSculpting).

Shannon wrote on Instagram: “I just tried another procedure called ClearLift on my neck @cosmeticare_ I’m pretty excited with the results and it only took 15 minutes! These are not professional or precise pictures, but check out my story to see the ‘before’ pic…”

Here are photos of Shannon’s neck before and after the skin resurfacing laser procedure, which CosmetiCare says can help with problems like sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and blotchiness without any downtime.

Shannon snapped a selfie video of the ClearLift laser in action, too.

Shannon smiled and talked throughout the procedure on her Instagram Stories as the laser flashed, so she didn’t seem too uncomfortable. CosmetiCare’s tech talked up the virtues of ClearLift as she chatted with Shannon in the video. “It helps with the crepiness, it helps with the pigmentation, it just gives it a nice lift,” she said.

“Perfect,” Shannon said, joking: “We need it for the reunion!”

Let’s all be real, we want to look our best on the big day! Let’s start with one of the most important features, our face.

To all my brides to be, you’ve made it through the fun part of your engagement. It’s now time to start a wedding beauty regiment together! It is now the perfect excuse for a makeover (even if you are not a future bride) so that you can have the best hair, skin, and nails of your life as you make your way down the aisle.

Jb and I are obsessed with self-care. We love getting our teeth whitened, going to the gym together, doing face mask together before bed… BUT now we have been introduced to the amazing Hydrafacial treatment with an amazing team at CosmetiCare.

We are about eight months out to our big wedding day in Mexico where it is beyond humid.

Which means oily skin could be in effect…

We are now starting our wedding beauty regiment and I highly recommend this to all future brides and even grooms! Do these activities together, it helps relieve the stress from wedding planning and you can even make a date out of it!

CosmetiCare is our go-to Medispa to get all of our wedding prep needs. We trust their super sweet and certified team to prep us to be flawless when saying our, “I Do’s”

They have many non-surgical and surgical treatments for almost everything.

We had the pleasure of working with Sarah who has been an R.N, specializes in injectables, laser various skin treatments for over 12 years! This was Jb’s first facial ever. He was extremely excited.

What is the HydraFacial Platinum?

The HydraFacial Platinum is an incredible facial treatment package utilizing unique patented HydraFacial technology along with additional skin care methods. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the HydraFacial, it is an amazing facial rejuvenation treatment that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates. The HydraFacial Platinum is designed to maximize the entire HydraFacial experience by including pre and post facial enhancements.

You have to be careful at other places as they are imposters and say they have the Hydrafacial treatment but they call it Hydrofacial, Hydra Spa or Hydra Facial. THIS is NOT an actual HYDRAFACIAL!

This photo is after my treatment that took a little under an hr long.

It was AMAZING!

The first step was something that was very new to me and I was a little scared. Dermaplaning is where my entire face was shaved! Ladies, I highly recommend this as we actually have so much hair on our face it’s crazy and your makeup will now apply smoother than before. I was nervous because I thought your hair would grow back thicker, however that is a myth!

Here are more details about the Facial treatment straight from CostmetiCares website:

The HydraFacial Platinum treatment begins with a skin assessment and a detoxifying and cleansing lymphatic massage. This specialized massaging technique is designed to drain lymphatic fluids that have built up within the body. Lymphatic fluid buildup can increase the negative impacts of bodily toxins, aging, and other types of skin damage.  Often times dermaplaning is added to a HydraFacial Platinum treatment as well.

The detoxifying massage is then followed by the traditional HydraFacial procedure. During this process, the patented HydraFacial device gently exfoliates and resurfaces the facial skin. The device then proceeds to painlessly suck out debris from your pores while delivering hydrating moisturizers. Lastly, the HydraFacial treatment protects your skin with antioxidants and peptides that maximize your face’s vibrant glow.

One of our favorite parts was the High-Frequency tool. The tool kills off any bacteria. It was really cool!

YES, this is all the gunk that as in Jb’s face. We both had about the same amount. Can you believe that was in our face? I mean EW!!!! This makes me so grossed out I actually almost vomited.

Thank you, Sarah and the CosmetiCare team for prepping our skin for our special day to come! Check out our faces we are glowing!!! #Groomglow

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. (February 19, 2019) – Dr. Brian Reagan, a board certified plastic surgeon, is combining new technologies to offer the most effective minimally invasive facial treatments available for patients at CosmetiCare, a plastic surgery center and MedSpa in Orange County, CA.  As the demand for less invasive aesthetic procedures continues to grow, Dr. Reagan and CosmetiCare are proud to be able to offer new solutions for patients who don’t want to go under the knife.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down.  “Office-based procedures that require less downtime are appealing to patients for many reasons,” says Dr. Reagan. “With new technology, our office-based procedures can effectively address the three main issues patients experience as they age: textural changes, loss of volume, and skin laxity.”

Focusing on the face, Dr. Reagan can improve skin texture with RF microneedling (namely Fractora and Morpheus8), improve skin laxity with FaceTite and restore facial volume using the patient’s own fat with intelliFat and AquiCell.

Many patients would like the benefits of a facelift, but aren’t quite ready for the procedure. Knowing this, Dr. Reagan advocated for a solution for these patients at CosmetiCare.

“FaceTite by InMode is a perfect option for patients who want to achieve a more youthful appearance without an invasive procedure,” says Dr. Reagan.  “With FaceTite, we are able to tighten the skin using radiofrequency energy within the dermis layer of the skin. We can provide the most skin tightening without a facelift using FaceTite.”

So how does FaceTite work? In short, FaceTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) and a small, hand-held device that passes radiofrequency energy through the skin, making only a few minimal markings that heal in a matter of days.  The hand-held device is calibrated and controlled by the surgeon so that only an appropriate amount of heat is applied, and the skin is not damaged. The entire FaceTite procedure can take less than 40 minutes.

Combining FaceTite with Fractora and Morpheus8 technology, known as EmbraceRF, helps to bridge the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures.  The RF microneedling devices from InMode provide improvement in skin complexion, reduction in skin irregularities and skin restoration. Again, harnessing the power of radio frequency, patients can now receive the ultimate non-invasive skin renovation without surgery.

Lastly, with intelliFat kits, Dr. Reagan can precisely harvest, process and transfer fat for patients to areas that they have experienced volume loss.  The latest in fat transfer technology provides more predictable results and fat that lasts longer.

“Patients can opt to receive all of these procedures under local anesthetic, which is a huge selling point for some,” says Dr. Reagan. “The fear of general anesthesia can be a deterrent for patients, but a procedure under local anesthetic can seem less scary.”

CosmetiCare in Orange County is proud to offer FaceTite, BodyTite, Fractora and Morpheus8 procedures, using devices by InMode, a global provider of energy-based, minimally invasive aesthetic solutions.  Combining these procedures with intelliFat, intelligent low volume fat transfer, is providing outstanding results.

“I’ve been practicing plastic surgery for 20 years and I believe the holy grail of facial rejuvenation is achieving significant rejuvenation results in a minimally invasive way with minimal recovery time,” says Dr. Reagan.

Dr. Reagan did his surgical training at Cornell Medical College/The New York Hospital, conducting wound care research that was awarded funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH).  At the University of Texas at Southwestern in Dallas, considered by many to be the top plastic surgery program in the country, Dr. Reagan trained with recognized world experts in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, and body contouring.  He is a highly-recommended plastic surgeon and is well-known in the local medical community.

Orange County cosmetic surgery center and medical spa makes waves in the aesthetic industry with announcement of magazine launch

CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa announced the debut of the first issue of A New You, a magazine inspired by the belief that beauty starts with education. The announcement was made by award winning plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Niccole, founder and Medical Director of CosmetiCare.

After being bullied as a teen because of her appearance and suffering severe emotional trauma, the latest Magic Mirror Foundation beneficiary was granted her wish for rhinoplasty.

The premiere issue of A New You will also feature an exposé on cosmetic surgery myths and truths, interviews with plastic surgeons on liposuction and life after liposuction, a behind-the-scenes look at the latest in aesthetic technology, plus seasonal articles including tips for reversing summer skin damage.

CosmetiCare Nomination: Surgical Makeover Of The Year

CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa implemented a unique ambassador program in 2016 to generate greater brand recognition, create and attract nontraditional forms of media, and to increase education about surgical and non-surgical procedures. The CosmetiCare Ambassador Program invites several local Southern California women each year to experience the wide array of services available at CosmetiCare in return for authentically sharing their cosmetic enhancement journeys with their online communities via blog posts, social media and testimonial videos. Our ambassadors are just like other women who have concerns about their bodies and who want to explore opportunities for change and it is through this program that we are able to showcase the real results that are achieved with the help of our team of experts. Here we have provided an example of one ambassadors’ transformation to demonstrate the impact of the program.

Meet Shelby Barone: a top influencer in Orange County, California and the creator of the widely-read “OC Mom Blog.” She is just one of the nine CosmetiCare Ambassadors with a monthly audience of 300,000+ readers. The mom of three decided to undergo mastopexy with augmentation and liposuction at CosmetiCare to help regain her pre-baby body and most importantly, her confidence.  To help other women facing her same struggles, Shelby shared her physical and mental journey in a very open and relatable way. She covered the process before, during, and after her procedures, sharing her experience and any concerns she had along the way, as well as tips she learned from the CosmetiCare team on how best to take care of herself before and after surgery.

About Shelby’s Journey:

Shelby’s first introduction to CosmetiCare as an ambassador was through non-invasive medspa treatments, such as Botox and Juvederm. She then transitioned to discussing mommy makeover surgical procedures that would help address her greatest areas of concern.  After a consultation with CosmetiCare’s board-certified plastic surgeons, Shelby decided to undergo a mastopexy with augmentation with Dr. Michael Niccole to lift and shape her breasts and reverse the after effects of breastfeeding. The results were spectacular and in Shelby’s words, her confidence, “went through the roof.” After seeing how delicate and precise CosmetiCare surgeons are, Shelby opted for liposuction to fully achieve the pre-baby body she once had. Dr. Angela Champion was able to remove targeted areas of stubborn fat and sculpt Shelby’s body to a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The CosmetiCare team also coached Shelby on the next steps needed post procedure to achieve optimal results.  Through CosmetiCare’s life-changing procedures and Shelby’s disciplined work, she lost an additional 40 pounds and six dress sizes!

Shelby attributes her new-found confidence to the education and procedures she received at CosmetiCare. She also says that this experience has not only impacted her life, but also the lives of those who follow her. Because Shelby was unafraid to share all aspects of her transformation journey, her followers have felt more empowered to explore surgical and non-surgical procedures, allowing them to take the reins to change their bodies and lives. Shelby’s breast and body contouring procedures have shown the quality of work that CosmetiCare doctors achieve and the care that goes into each and every patient’s wellbeing. Shelby and the CosmetiCare team deserve to be named Surgical Makeover of the Year because of the quality of work and care shown, the results yielded, and the widespread impact achieved through patient education.

CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa has been honored as a nominee for the 19th Annual Orange County Business Journal Family-Owned Business Awards. It feels great to be recognized for our dedication to our patients and the community, and to share the story behind our family-focused practice. Thank you to everyone that helps support CosmetiCare every day! We are proud to be nominated alongside so many other positive forces within Orange County.

Read on for the full post that was featured in the Family-Owned Business Awards edition of the Orange County Business Journal, distributed in May 2018.

Tonya Banks Achieves Boss Body Status

Tonya Banks Plastic Surgery

Little Women: LA star Tonya Banks lives a pretty active lifestyle, but she wasn’t happy with her body so she decided to undergo plastic surgery at CosmetiCare. Tonya had been looking forward to refreshing her look for awhile and said her main reason for wanting a body makeover is because of her age. At 53 years old, she felt that plastic surgery would help boost her confidence. “I’m at a point in my life where I want to refresh myself… As I get older, my boss body has become more blob body. I’m all about fitness, but there ain’t no fighting Father Time,” said Tonya.

Tonya recruited Little Women: LA co-star Christy Gibel, age 40, to undergo non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with her at CosmetiCare as well, to complete the boss body makeover.  Cameras followed the ladies on their cosmetic journey, first documenting a consultation with Dr. Brian Reagan to discuss their aesthetic goals and then the ladies’ vaginal rejuvenation procedures with Dr. Sandra Bouzaglou.  Finally, cameras went into the operating room with Dr. Michael Niccole and Dr. Burr von Maur for Tonya’s liposuction and breast surgery procedures.

So how is Tonya doing now? She’s been posting photos of her rockin’ bod all over social media and she couldn’t be happier with her results.  A few weeks ago she showed off her new look in a bikini pic (shown below). And in order to keep her results, Tonya has been hitting the gym and sharing tips with fans about how to find the motivation to start their own fitness journey.

“There are so many ways to actively get fit other than going to the gym,” she wrote. “Take a dance class, practice yoga, jog around your neighborhood or even take a boxing class like I do! The healthier happier you is an exercise away.”

Christy Gibel Overcomes Her Fear Of Surgery

Although Christy Gibel considered having liposuction along with her co-star and friend, her fear of surgery stopped her at the last minute. Having suffered from a complicated neck surgery in the past, Christy was unsure about going under the knife. However, after seeing Tonya’s results, she began to feel regret and decided to once again explore her surgery options.

Weight struggles have affected the Gibel family for many years. For Christy and her husband Todd, weight issues impacted their marriage as well. Things turned around when Todd underwent gastric bypass surgery and began to make his health a priority. This year it was time for Christy to take control of her weight, and she turned to CosmetiCare’s partners at Smart Dimensions Weight Loss for help.

Breast Augmentation And Breast Reduction Procedures Increase

Breast Surgeries Increase

Breast augmentation has won the title for the most popular plastic surgery in America.  This is making headlines because the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) just released their 2017 statistics report.  Media outlets including USA Today, Women’s Health Magazine, Allure, and Real Simple have all weighed in.  In total, 300,378 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2017 – a three percent increase from 2016.

Interestingly, breast reduction surgery also saw a spike in popularity and rose 11 percent in 2017.  “Breast reductions are consistently reported as one of the highest patient satisfaction procedures because it positively affects a woman’s quality of life. It addresses both functional and aesthetic concerns,” says Jeffrey E. Janis, the president of ASPS.

All breast surgery procedures including breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and breast lift are designed to enhance the self-image of patients by restoring or enhancing the shape, curve, and contour of the female form.  Recently, Vicki Gunvalson, star of Bravo’s hit series The Real Housewives of Orange County, turned to the team of experts at CosmetiCare to enhance her own self-image this way.

Vicki Gunvalson’s Story

Vicki had previously undergone multiple breast surgeries in an attempt to achieve the right size for her body.  She made the common mistake of going too large with her first breast augmentation.  As a long time patient of CosmetiCare, Vicki came to Dr. Michael Niccole for her final breast surgery, which also helped align her nipples.  “I decided on CosmetiCare because I trust Dr. Niccole and his team,” said Vicki.

Breast surgery procedures help create an aesthetically pleasing look for women who are unhappy with their breast shape or size.  Our before and after photos show how significant the improvement can be after a breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, or breast lift.  In Vicki’s case, we are glad to report that she has exclaimed, “I’m finally happy with my results!”

K. Michelle On Butt Implants With Dr. Oz: Watch This Before You Have Enhancement Surgery

Top plastic surgeon reveals the ugly truth about illegal butt implants and the serious complications that can result. Hear from K. Michelle, Dr. Oz and Dr. Niccole on an eye-opening episode of The Dr. Oz Show.

K. Michelle on The Doctor Oz Show with Dr. Niccole discussing butt implants

The Incredible Real Dangers of Illegal Butt Implants

There’s a scary growing trend with dramatically negative outcomes and health effects hitting the cosmetic enhancement world today.  What is often referred to as “back-alley surgeries” or “black market augmentations” has resulted in serious consequences for countless victims and has even claimed the lives of some in their quest for beauty.  K. Michelle, an American R&B singer, songwriter, and television personality, is one of those victims who suffered severe consequences after undergoing an illicit procedure to enlarge her butt.  This year she had her illegal butt injections removed and she sat down with Dr. Oz to discuss her experience along with the doctor who performed her life-changing reconstructive procedure, Dr. Michael Niccole.

K. Michelle’s Decision To Have Her Butt Implants Removed

K. Michelle has been very open about her butt implants and her decision to have them removed.  “No amount of beauty is worth your health,” said K. Michelle.  When she decided to say goodbye to her surgically enhanced behind, she turned to Dr. Niccole, founder and Medical Director of CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa in Newport Beach, California.

Dr. Niccole Performs K. Michelle’s Reconstructive Surgery

In K. Michelle’s original illicit and dangerous procedure, tiny pellets were injected into her buttocks.  These foreign objects, hydrophilic particles, were created to expand to 5 times their original size as they absorbed blood and body fluids.  This an illegal/outlawed technique that often results in deformities, misshapen buttocks, and pain/discomfort, or even more serious complications.

Foreign Objects In Butt Injections

Dr. Niccole, a double-board certified plastic surgeon and expert in performing Brazilian Butt Lift procedures, was able to save K. Michelle from a lifetime of pain and untold consequences by removing hundreds of the pellets from her buttocks.  However, as he explained to Dr. Oz, some had worked their way into the muscle tissues and nerve endings and could not be fully removed.  During the complicated reparative surgery, Dr. Niccole further helped reshape K. Michelle’s buttocks by re-sculpting the existing tissue until it was the size, shape, and proportion that she had intended it to be.

How To Avoid Garage Clinics And Dangerous Implants

It’s important to make sure your plastic surgeon is board certified, has plenty of experience with buttocks enlargement, and to ask for at least 3 references.  Follow-up with these references and ask about their experience, any side-effects, and the outcomes of their procedures.

If you would like to learn more about CosmetiCare’s board certified plastic surgeons, or if you are interested in learning more about a Brazilian Butt Lift, Buttocks Enlargement or Buttocks Lift, schedule a free consultation or call us at 949-438-5303 today.

Skin removal weight loss this time next year

Skin removal and body contouring experts at CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center & MedSpa are nationally known for helping patients reflect the beauty they feel on the inside by using innovative surgical techniques.  In Lifetime’s new hit show, This Time Next Year, CosmetiCare’s own Dr. Niccole and Dr. von Maur use their extensive experience in body contouring, liposuction, breast surgery, and skin removal surgeries to dramatically improve the next chapter of a participant’s weight loss journey.

Jackie’s Story

At just 31 years old, Jackie Kohl had weighed in at 394 lbs at her heaviest.  With the help of gastric bypass surgery, she was able to lose a remarkable 200 lbs.  Unfortunately, she suffered from a common side effect that many individuals experience following gastric bypass surgery or a significant shift in lifestyle – the unwanted excess skin that is left behind.

When Jackie consulted with Dr. Niccole and Dr. von Maur, it had been two and a half years since her gastric bypass surgery.  The excess skin was a constant reminder of the lifestyle she had overcome and she was ready to fully achieve the body she had worked so hard for.  Although Jackie lived in Illinois, she was able to do a virtual consultation with the CosmetiCare team and obtain medical clearance in her hometown before flying to California for her transformation.

Traveling For Plastic Surgery

Jackie’s story highlights a trend that CosmetiCare is seeing more and more these days, which is patients traveling from all over the country for surgery.  We understand why.  Traveling to CosmetiCare provides the opportunity for patients to receive state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures and to be treated by expert plastic surgeons otherwise unavailable in their hometown.  Additionally, it provides the benefit of being in a beautiful location with total privacy for recovery.  Some patients consider it a cosmetic vacation!

It doesn’t matter where you live if you are interested in a procedure like Jackie’s, a Mommy Makeover, or any other procedure performed at CosmetiCare.  With technology today, you can get to know our team of experts through a virtual consultation before making the trip to our office.  When you’re ready to schedule your procedure, we’ll work with you to create a complete, personalized surgical plan by discussing all the details including your travel arrangements, financing, and setup for post-op care.

Dr. Niccole and Dr. von Maur were honored to use their expertise in skin removal and body contouring to help Jackie complete her weight loss journey.  For questions about plastic surgery, to learn more about our board-certified plastic surgeons, or if you’d like to discuss your own transformation, please contact us and schedule a consultation.

Kelly Dodd Returns to CosmetiCare in Newport Beach to Receive Her Breast Reduction Surgery

Kelly Dodd is a beloved patient at CosmetiCare and has put her trust in our fabulous doctors time and time again. Previously, Bravo TV aired a segment on Dodd receiving life-changing vaginal rejuvenation treatment at our Newport Beach offices. While discussing the positive outcome of her vaginal rejuvenation in an interview with Bravo, Dodd suggested that her next surgery would likely involve breast reduction.

Relieve Back Pain and Discomfort 

Kelly’s decision to undergo breast reduction surgery came to fruition after years of dealing with back pain and discomfort. In an interview with The Lookbook, Dodd discussed her physical issues with her large breasts, stating “I couldn’t run, it was hurting my back.” Dodd wasn’t alone in feeling uncomfortable or overwhelmed with her breast size. Thousands of women opt for breast reduction surgery each year in order to get relief from the physiological unpleasantness that larger breasts often induce.

Going for Subtle Over Supple 

Another reason that Dodd cited in her decision to reduce her breast size involved the aesthetic appeal of having a smaller, subtler bosom. As Dodd noted in a previous interview, “big boobs are out of style, nobody wants big boobs anymore.” Here The Real Housewives of OC star highlights a growing trend toward subtlety in the cosmetic enhancement industry. More and more patients are opting for less drastic surgical outcomes, and minimal changes with maximal results are the mantra of the times. In the realm of

full mastopexy in orange county, this translates to a growing inclination toward smaller chests.

The “Boob Voyage” Goodbye Breasts Party 

In true Kelly Dodd fashion, the Real Housewives of Orange County star hosted a televised “Boob Voyage” party to give her breasts a festive send-off. As Dodd wrote in her blog, the party “was a good excuse for everyone to get together and have fun.” While the intent was to unite the OC Housewives cast, Dodd recognized that the party turned into an “emotional roller coaster.” You can relive some of the drama that they encountered in this segment from Bravo TV.

Creating a Cast of Her Breasts 

Prior to the party, Dodd had her husband Michael create a cast of her breasts so that she can always remember how they once looked. The brave and beautiful OC housewife went topless for the camera as her husband applied the cast and jokingly remarked, “give me a topic to think about… anything but this.” Obviously, caressing Kelly’s bare breasts on camera was bit much for her husband to handle.

Dodd’s decision to make a mold of her breasts demonstrated how much of a commitment she was making by undergoing breast reduction surgery. She clearly loved her breasts the way that they were, but was courageous enough to undergo the surgery in an effort to love them even more. With such a big decision on the table, it makes perfect sense that Dodd put her trust in the capable hands of CosmetiCare’s incredible aesthetic surgeons. We had taken care of Dodd in the past and she knew that she could count on our facility to provide the best possible breast reduction treatment.

The Results of Kelly Dodd’s Breast Reduction Surgery at CosmetiCare 

Kelly’s surgery was tremendously successful and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Dodd had expressed physical and emotional distress caused by her 32G sized breasts. She is now doing much better and has cited her “really good girlfriends” as incredibly helpful during her recovery process. You can watch Dodd undergo her breast reduction surgery at CosmetiCare on The Real Housewives of Orange County episode, airing Monday, September 25th at 9/8c on Bravo TV.

For many, “vaginal rejuvenation treatment” can sound equal parts confusing, embarrassing, and intimidating. After initially learning of the phrase, a couple of obvious questions arise. The first is typically “why?”, and the following is usually “when?” In an effort to clear the air a little, let’s take a closer look at what vaginal rejuvenation treatment entails and determine whether or not it’s right for you.

Nasal Reconstruction Surgery

Physical appearance is of the utmost importance to celebrities and reality stars whose livelihood hinges on their aesthetic look.  So when these people trust in CosmetiCare for their plastic surgery needs, that’s really says something! Check out this video of Alexis Bellino from The Real Housewives of Orange County as she consults with CosmetiCare’s Dr. Niccole prior to her nasal reconstruction surgery.

 

Nasal Reconstruction Procedure

Nasal Reconstruction makes changes to the inside of the nose- clearing passages to make breathing easier and reduce or eliminate sinus problems. If the patient prefers, doctors can perform a Rhinoplasty during the NSR surgery since they’re already working on the nose and the patient is already under anesthesia and going to be recovering from nose surgery.

NSR surgery (with or without Rhinoplasty), is a relatively easy recovery! Some light swelling may occur the first few days following the surgery, but pain is very limited with medication and ice. Some patients find they don’t need to medicate, and that ice is more than sufficient.

If you’re interested in nose surgery, give us a call to discuss your options today!

Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic surgery is not always done for the sole purpose of beautifying oneself. Yes, many of those who undergo cosmetic surgery on the face or on the body are probably doing it to feel and look more beautiful. However, such isn’t the case for one woman who was assaulted in a parking lot.

**Read OC Register Story: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/proctor-616878-nose-niccole.html **

Erin Proctor thought she was being a Good Samaritan when she approached a woman being attacked. Little did she know that she was going to be the victim of the assault. The incident left her with cracked teeth and a broken nose. The 28-year old face was damaged simply because she wanted to help someone else.

A year after the damaging incident, Erin has not yet physically and psychologically recovered. Her nose is still crooked and this has caused difficulty in breathing. Basically “living as a hermit,” her scars and crooked nose has led her to surrender to low self-esteem.

Thankfully, Magic Mirror Foundation – a nonprofit group – is willing to help Erin breathe better and regain her sense of self-worth. Dr. Michael Niccole will perform the surgery pro bono.

The assault left Erin with eight broken bones in her nose and some scars. Through open rhinoplasty, the broken bones will be mended and the scars will be reduced. Open rhinoplasty is one of the many cosmetic surgery services that CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa offers.

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure for correcting and reconstructing the shape of the nose, restoring its normal functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose. In Erin’s case, because of the trauma her nose received from the assault, she needs to undergo open rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty, like closed rhinoplasty, involves the operative manipulation and reconstruction of the nose’s cartilage, bone, lining, and skin. Because of the severe trauma of Erin’s nose, an open rhinoplasty is the more preferred procedure. Open rhinoplasty facilitates an improved diagnostic accuracy and allows increased precision of the reconstruction of a badly misshapen nose.

This cosmetic surgical procedure differs in one aspect from the closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty involves the creation of a trans-columellar, which is basically a small bridging incision. This incision allows the cosmetic surgeon to see precisely and more clearly the entire skeletal and muscular framework of Erin’s severely traumatized nose.

Moreover the creation of this incision assures the cosmetic surgeon better access to the nasal parts and decreases distortion of the nasal cartilage. Open rhinoplasty facilitates improved analysis of the nose because the parts remain in their natural, undisturbed alignment.

With the help of Magic Mirror Foundation and Dr. Niccole of CosmetiCare, Erin will regain not only her beautiful nose and face, but her much needed sense of self-worth. 

Throughout its thirty-year history, CosmetiCare and its surgeons have received numerous awards, the most recent of which being the 2014 Press-Telegram Readers Choice Awards for Best Cosmetic Surgeon and Favorite Medical Spa. Press-Telegram is a local newspaper based in Long Beach California, and every year they ask their readers to choose their favorites in a number of categories. For 2014, Press-Telegram readers chose CosmetiCare founder, Dr. Michael Niccole, as the best cosmetic surgeon, and CosmetiCare as their favorite medical spa.

In 2013, OC Weekly readers also voted Dr. Niccole as the best cosmetic surgeon, while in 2009, CosmetiCare was chosen by readers of the Orange County Register as one of the best cosmetic surgery centers in Orange County. As one reader testifies, “Before choosing CosmetiCare to perform my cosmetic surgery, I consulted with four other surgery centers. They treated me like a person, not a number.”

Patients also sing praises to CosmetiCare founder Dr. Niccole. “Dr. Niccole is the best doctor. He calls his patients at home to see how they are feeling after the surgery. I’m very impressed!” says Donna of Stanton.

Patients are clearly satisfied with their treatment results, with over 90% of individuals who go to the center for cosmetic procedures being referred by prior patients. They all benefit from the combined treatments performed by the center’s team of world class professionals.

As seen on TV’s Inside Edition, Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Burr von Maur at CosmetiCare helped changed the life of a teen who suffered bullying because of her nose shape and size.
