If you are considering plastic surgery; we understand the importance of the decision. Dr. Anthony Nikko, a world renowned Cosmetic Surgeon in Houston and Board Certified Dermatologist, is a firm believer that one of the most important aspects in a person’s look is the expression of the body. “An individual’s confidence is expressed through both their verbal and physical language. When the physical aspect is lacking, that person usually loses all self-esteem. Once the physical aspect improves, then the confidence and radiance is restored and the person completely glows,” confesses Dr. Nikko.
At Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center, the ultimate goal is to exceed each patient’s expectations by providing the most advanced technology in Cosmetic Surgery in Houston, TX. Dr. Nikko is highly renowned for conducting Breast Augmentation procedures utilizing a unique and Scarless technique to achieve the most natural look Breast Enlargement without leaving a scar on the breast, a stigma often seen in Breast Augmentation. He is also distinguished for his Buttock Augmentation via FAMI- Fat Transfer technique that includes the latest technology in auto grafting fat transfer to restore volume in the buttock. Dr. Nikko’s “no-stitch” Tummy Tuck technique is distinguished among Plastic Surgeons in Houston for the non-visible scar and perfectly-shaped belly buttons. Liposuction is another of Dr. Nikko areas of expertise, utilizing the tumescent liposuction procedure to remove stubborn fat from the lower layers of the skin and allowing to restore the curves and definition of the body.
One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, Liposuction is a safe and highly effective procedure designed to rid the body of fat that is resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Liposuction is particularly in demand for patients who are physically fit – meaning those who are active and eat well – but who can’t seem to obtain the flat abdomen, sculpted arms or thighs, or svelte figure.
The most common usually are the abdomen, waist, hips, lower and upper back, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms that have not responded to diet and exercise. General anesthesia is usually performed during the procedure and can last anywhere from one to five hours depending on the amount of fat being removed. Liposuction cannot, however, remove cellulite, but it can leave the body looking much more toned and sculpted.
Dr. Nikko is highly renowned for his ability to achieve outstanding results by making a small incision in the treatment area. He inserts a narrow, hollow tube – called a cannula – into the incision to vacuum out excess fat cells. Side effects associated with liposuction include temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, burning, and general discomfort that typically subside within a few weeks.
Breast augmentation is a wonderful way to regain confidence about yourself and your body. Women many times find that a breast augmentation provides the self-confidence boost that they have been seeking. After breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Nikko, patients can wear all types of clothing styles because their breasts are proportionate to the rest of their body. Clothes will fit beautifully!
Since breast enhancement was first performed in 1962, a variety of approaches and techniques have been developed. By utilizing the “no-stitch” breast augmentation approach, Dr. Nikko can guide each patient individually to make the right, educated decision that fits their needs.
Dr. Nikko will discuss the various options for incision sites:
• Inframammary: under the breast fold
• Periareolar: around the areola
• Transaxillary: through the armpit
• Transumbilical: belly button or TUBA
The implant placement is another important factor to discuss with Dr. Nikko. This is based on the size of your breast implants, your body style and other factors related to the goals and expectations.
• Subglandular: above the muscle
• Subfascial: above the muscle, under the fascia
• Submuscular: under the muscle
Breast implants come in many shapes and sizes. The type of breast implant to choose for plastic surgery should be based on the desired change in profile and cleavage. Factors include positioning, surface texture, shape, anatomy and other considerations. Since silicone gel implants were approved by the FDA in 2006, patients now have more options when selecting an implant type.
Dr. Nikko is also the innovator for the “no-stitch” Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) technique that not only allows to correct a protruding abdomen due to excess fat and skin when dieting and exercise have failed, but also to minimize the abdominal scar. This body contour procedure allows for Dr. Nikko to smooth and flatten the stomach, repair the lax abdominal muscles and recreate the belly button to achieve the perfect figure, all with no stitches to create a visible scar.
