My experience with Dr. Nikko for plastic surgery has been a positive one. He cares about me as a patient and strived for the best results. I highly recommend him. Please know exactly what you want going in so that you can effectively communicate this to the surgeon, and undestand that it takes time to heal to acheieve optimal results.
This was the first cosmetic procedure I've ever had done. I had a neck lift and chemical face peel. I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Nikko and his staff are very professional and genuinely caring. People have told me these procedures have taken years off my appearance. I will definitely return to him in the future.
I debated leaving this review, as the staff and Dr. Nikko himself are so kind and I really (REALLY) wanted to believe in him. Therefore, I decided to give myself a full year of healing time before leaving any reviews and/or seeking second opinions and exploring reconstruction.
Well, a year has come and gone, and I am disappointed in the outcome of my surgery. After consulting 4 surgeons (both local and in another state) the consensus is that I need a revision, as the implants were placed incorrectly and the resulting shape is not ideal.
Before I dive into further details, I think its important to highlight the fact that of the 6 reviews on Yelp, I recognize 2 of them to be from employees of Dr. Nikko. A little suspicious to say the least.
Now. Below I will detail several reasons why I would not recommend Dr. Nikko for any sort of plastic surgery. I hope this helps anyone considering surgery in making their decision.
1. He's not a certified plastic surgeon. Both he and his employees will try to discount this by saying that certification is only required for reconstructive surgeons, or something like that. I don't know what the technicality is, but why not just get certified? There's something odd about someone practicing plastic surgery not being certified. This should have been a front end indicator but, like I said, they have a script to make you feel like this isn't a big deal. Of all the surgeons in Houston, why not go with one that is certified?
2. Lack of empathy . I expressed concerns about my healing and shape in the months following my surgery. All I got was "no big deal, give it time. they look great!", when what I needed was "let's fix this". After some time I was offered a revision (where I would only have to pay anesthesia fees) after insisting I was not happy. I did not go through with this because sometimes you can't put a price on things this delicate, and I would rather pay full price elsewhere than worsen the problem by using the same surgeon at a discount. I'm glad I didn't go through with this, now knowing that the issue was placement and a simple nip/tuck wouldn't have solved the error, anyways.
3. Cost. On top of everything (not being certified, bad reviews, operating out of his office) his cost is higher than other doctors in Houston.. might as well go to a certified doctor and save.
4. Results. I simply hate the outcome of my surgery. Reason enough not to recommend him. I'm now having to spend as much as I did on the initial surgery for a revision... why spend 15K when you can spend 6K the first time around?
Would I recommend Dr. Nikko to a friend? No. That said, this is only my experience and I share it in hopes of helping others understand how important doctor selection is. Surely others have had better experiences, but it's good to at least know the risks.
Dr. Nikko has been my cosmetic surgeon for years and has always done an amazing job on me and my family. He did surgery on me after I had my daughter and it made me feel so much more confident in myself. One time my daughter tripped and cut her lip open and I instinctively called his office. They put me through to him and he told me to come to his office instead of the emergency room because that would traumatize her much more. He is such a good man and an amazing surgeon.
I had two big babies and my stomach was really stretched. I tried personal trainers and lots of exercise but it didn't work. When I met with Dr. Nikko for the consultation he explained everything in detail about my mommy makeover and what to expect. The staff was very nice and also detailed. They never got tired of my questions or calls. My tummy tuck and lipo look amazing! I wear a bikini all the time and no one can see the scar. Dr. Nikko changed my life and I'll always appreciate his honesty and genuine smile.
Dr.Nikko is The Best Cosmetic Surgeon! Thanks to him, I'm so happy about my body. After 2 kids, I'm BEAUTiful again. Thank you so much to Dr.Nikko and Team. I will tell all my friends and co-workers about you. You are Wonderful. So caring and so kind.
Don't his next VICTIM. I believed this man when he told me he was a plastic surgeon and board certified. I trusted this man with my body and my life. I am alive however, my body is deformed and It looks horrible!!! This man is NOT a PLASTIC SURGEON. This man ruined my body, lied about his qualifications and took my money. I paid top dollar because I thought I was getting a board certified plastic surgeon. This man has not been to school for plastic surgery! This man is NOT BOARD CERTIFIED for plastic surgery!!! Please take heed to this warning. Go to a real plastic surgeon, who is board certified and has the proper credentials and qualifications!!!!!! I am distraught, depressed and have to live with this horrible results from this for the rest of my life!!!!
I have known Dr. Nikko since the nineties and He has been treating my whole family for skin problems and has performed various surgeries on us. I had breast augmentation done and the procedure was so simple I wish I had gotten it done a long time ago. Discomfort during recovery was minimal. Dr. Nikko was so attentive throughout the whole process and his staff was helpful. He has so many years of experience with cosmetic surgeries thus I was informed and prepared from the start. The price was very reasonable and I would recommend all my friends to him. He is a blessing.
Dr. Nikko is an amazing surgeon. He is a perfectionist with his work. He is caring and very honest throughout the consultation process. He made sure I was completely comfortable during surgery and was very tentative during recovery. He has treated my daughter & I with skin issues. I had liposuction & facial injections and am very pleased with the results and would recommend all of my friends to him. His staff was so cordial & helpful. Dr. Nikko also reconstructed the damaged facial lesion for an acquaintance who had Melanoma. He used skin graft and the area healed so well with hardly any scarring. I would recommend him & his staff to all my family and friends who need cosmetic surgeries or need treatments for skin problems.
