CosmetiCare Best Of Orange County

Cosmeticare Plastic Surgery Center and Medspa has again earned a spot on the list of best cosmetic surgery centers, according to the Best of Orange County awards from The Orange County Register. The plastic surgery clinic comprises of a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons and nurses, led by Dr. Michael Niccole, who has been offering exceptional aesthetic care to patients since 1982.

The Best of Orange County awards are chosen by readers in different fields, with cosmetic surgery centers being one. One of the most trusted names in aesthetic medicine, CosmetiCare has its office in Newport Beach.

“CosmetiCare has worked hard to become a leader in the field, and I’m delighted to see the practice’s doctors among the best cosmetic surgeons Orange County has to offer,” says Dr. Niccole. “Our patients benefit from access to a wealth of medical knowledge, along with advanced treatments and the latest equipment. CosmetiCare was found on the principle of treating the ‘whole you,’ and with another ‘best of’ award, it is clear that our patients feel very well taken care of.”

The cosmetic surgery clinic offers all kinds of aesthetic care, from treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and laser resurfacing to more traditional surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and facelifts. From doctors to front office staff, the practice is devoted to hiring and retaining only the best of the best to make sure that patients can feel confident about their experience.

“Everyone is looking for the ‘best’ plastic surgeons in Orange County, and it can be tough because there are so many doctors to choose from,” notes Dr. Niccole. “At our practice, we are devoted to achieving results that are second to none. That goes for surgical procedures as well as the skin care services and treatment plans carefully designed and conducted by our medical estheticians. Everyone on staff is devoted to excellence.”

“We are working hard to retain our place as one of the top cosmetic surgery practices in the area,” adds Dr. Niccole. “Our devotion to being the best is all about serving the patient with unmatched care. It’s not about just seeing the practice name on a list; it’s about a result; it’s about feeling good when you look in the mirror; it’s about solutions; it’s about helping our patients love the way they look.”

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.

The ladies of Little Women: LA are back! This time they’re bearing it all and going under the knife at CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa in Newport Beach, California.

Little Women, Big Results

A main focus of this season of Little Women: LA has been self-care, seen through Tonya Banks and Christy Gibel’s transformation journeys.  Beginning with a Botox Party organized by Christy Gibel, the women have made their overall wellbeing a priority.  The team at CosmetiCare has been there along the way to help! Read on to find out how Tonya Banks and Christy Gibel made the most of positive life changes in their pursuit of health and happiness.

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.

Themed parties are fun, but tupperware is passé.  We have a better way to get your friends together to enjoy some fun and get pampered these days.  We’re talking about a Botox party of course! They’re all the craze and there’s good reason why. Not convinced?  Why don’t we let the fabulous crew of Little Women: LA show you how to do a Botox party the right way!

Over the past six seasons, we’ve enjoyed watching the ladies of Little Women: LA, Lifetime’s hit reality series, be candid and open about their relationships, families, and careers.  The currently airing new season is all about female empowerment, and what better way to feel empowered than by loving the way you look!

Little Women: LA Cast Banish Wrinkles At Botox Party

Dr. Angela Champion and Sara Katzenbach, RN from CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa had the pleasure of helping the cast of Little Women: LA banish their wrinkles with a Botox party.  The ladies each received a personal consultation prior to their treatment to discuss their aesthetic goals.

“Botox parties are a comfortable way for patients to get Botox and a fun way to bring friends together,” said Dr. Champion.  “The Little Women cast were great patients and really enjoyed the experience.”

Botox is an effective non-surgical treatment and with regular maintenance, it provides a long term solution for facial lines and wrinkles.  Many women opt for Botox as a preventative measure these days to prevent early signs of aging. Since Botox is recognized as one of the most popular, safe, effective, and affordable ways to age gracefully, it’s no wonder Botox parties have become the new girls’ night in!

If you’d like to find out more about Botox or any of the other MedSpa services at CosmetiCare, or if you’d like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Champion or Sara Katzenbach, please contact us.

Watch the ladies of Little Women: LA enjoy the Botox party fun on the all-new episode of Little Women: LA, airing Wednesday, April 18th at 9/8C on Lifetime.

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.

As seen on the new television show, This Time Next Year, CosmetiCare plastic surgeons in Newport Beach, California help contestant with plastic surgery after weight loss.

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.

Watch This Time Next Year to see Jackie’s big reveal.  This Time Next Year airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c on Lifetime.
