Dr. Matthew J. Nykiel believes an elegant cosmetic result directly correlates with prudent training and precise technique. Therefore, he devoted an extensive amount of time to perfecting his practice. Dr. Nykiel is unique in that he attained a double sub-specialty within Plastic Surgery. This exclusive skill set, only held by a handful of Plastic Surgeons, is how Dr. Nykiel delivers consistent results to satisfied patients every day.
Dr. Nykiel received his Medical Degree from Indiana University. The need for an artistic eye drew him to Plastic Surgery. After medical school, he was immediately accepted into a sought-after Plastic Surgery Residency in St. Louis. During his residency, Dr. Nykiel’s peers elected him to the Graduate Medical Education Committee where he served to provide oversight for the graduate medical education programs to the University.
After completion of his residency, Dr. Nykiel began his first sub-specialty fellowship at Stanford University. While there, Dr. Nykiel served as Faculty at Stanford University. During his fellowship, he cultivated his learning of advanced techniques including complex breast revisions, breast reconstruction, microsurgery, abstruse facial reconstruction, and Fat Grafting.
Upon finishing at Stanford University, Dr. Nykiel started his second sub-specialty fellowship in Aesthetic & Cosmetic Surgery. He was honored when selected for an American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAP) endorsed Aesthetic/Cosmetic Plastic surgery fellowship at the Plastic Surgery Center in Sacramento under the tutelage of Dr. Scott Green. There are only 14 ASAP endorsed Aesthetic & Cosmetic training programs in the country. This speaks volumes to the caliber of training Dr. Nykiel received in Cosmetic & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The dedication to further his training in Aesthetic & Cosmetic Surgery at the culmination of his training cannot be underscored; it is above and beyond the medical standard.
During his time in Sacramento, he learned the intricate details to achieve elegant results in Fat Grafting to the Butt (Brazilian Butt-Lift) and Body Contouring (Liposuction, Tummy-Tuck, Arm-Lift, Body-Lifts etc.). His unique knowledge and training in fat harvest and grafting techniques allowed him to achieve unparalleled results!
He now trains surgeons from all over the world in VASER® Liposuction to help other surgeons learn the art of hourglass sculpting and body contouring. One of his most popular procedures is the infamous “Cali Beach Body Makeover” that is a complete makeover package from lips to hips.
Dr. Nykiel is also the “Official Booty Doctor” on “KGGI 99.1” and “The Real 92.3” radio station where you will hear his captivating radio ads. You can see examples of his transformative work, live surgical cases and daily stories on his social media platforms at @socalplasticsurgeon and @buttsbydesign.
My procedure of the BBL with Dr. Nykiel and his team has been astounding. Dr. Nykiel is extremely knowledgeable and informative with the preparation and post care of the BBL. Each visit I felt under great care and prepared for my BBL surgery and post care. I am very happy with my results since my figure has been dramatically enhanced in a more feminine and curvaceous way. For future cosmetic procedures, I will definitely continue to be under the care of Dr. Nykiel and his team.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Nykiel. His team treated me so well. They were patient and helpful with any and all questions and concerns. Dr. Nykiel is great and easy going. I am so happy with my results! If you want that butt, he’s the guy to go to.
I am 3 months post op and so thrilled with my results from Dr. Nykiel! At first I was skeptical because I had gone to a couple consults with other surgeons before Dr. Nykiel and I wasn't really confident with any of them. However, when I met Dr. Nykiel he was very easy going and didn't seem like he was in a hurry or trying to rush me through the consult. I decided to have a bbl and breast augmentation done at the same time. The process was pretty easy and I felt very confident on surgery day. Recovery was almost pain free and Dr. Nykiel and his staff were very attentive the days following my surgery. My results are amazing and I am so happy to feel confident in my own skin again. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nykiel to anyone looking for plastic surgery.
4. Dr. Nykiel and Shanna made me feel 100% at comfort from beginning to end. 5 years agoI had a bad experience with plastic surgery and was cautious to do it again. Dr. Nykiel and Staff were kind, genuine and thorough when discussing my goals and options. He was honest about what to expect with my results. He is an excellent surgeon! The results are lit!!!! Waist is snatched!!! I highly recommend him and Butts By Design. What else can I Say? Beautiful, clean and welcoming environment with plastic surgery excellence.
5. Before getting this procedure I was so unsatisfied with the shape of my body. The first glimpse I got of body after the procedure put me in tears. I have always dreamt of my body having an hour glass figure and finally my dream is a reality. Dr Nykiel and his team have been so supportive and patient with me through this entire process. Thank you a million times Dr. Nykiel and his team.
6. Saying that Dr. Nykiel is AMAZING is definitely an understatement! I met with a few doctors for consultations but Dr. Nykiel was the only one that made me feel comfortable from the very first minute. We talked about what I wanted to change about myself and he made some great and REALISTIC suggestions to help me get to where I want to be. After surgery, he personally sent me text messages to make sure I was doing okay. When I had questions, I never hesitated to text him and he responded very quickly. It has now been 4 weeks since my procedures. I am overwhelmingly happy with my results so far! I have gone to 3 follow-up visits with him and he has taken the time to answer all of my questions. He always makes me feel like I am his number one priority, even though I know he is very busy! I am extremely happy with my post-surgery body and would highly recommend him to everyone. Instead of feeling like just another patient, Dr. Nykiel has gone above and beyond to show he cares.
7. Dr. Nykiel was warm and easy to speak with at the consult. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable and even laugh during the consult. We were very nervous and he did a great job of easing the tension. Overall, the consul felt very open and comfortable. I am 6 months from what my husband likes to call my B&B treatment (Breasts and Butt lol). I love my results!. I love the way I feel! And my hubbie is happy :) The office and the surgery center staff were sweet and caring. I traveled in for my surgery and both Dr. Nykiel and the staff made it so easy! I recommend him to everyone! Thank you so much for making me feel comfortable and happy with myself! Thank you Dr. Nykiel!!!
