Woman Gets Breast Implants From Her Father

Woman Gets Breast Implants From Her Father

 

Michael Niccole gave his daughter Brittani an eyebrow-raising gift for her 18th birthday — breast implants. But that’s not all – Michael Niccole is actually Dr. Michael Niccole, a plastic surgeon in Orange County, Calif. And yep, you guessed it — Dr. Niccole performed the surgery himself.

But that’s not all. Dr. Niccole has performed nose jobs, botox, skin smoothing and tightening and lip injections on his now 23-year-old daughter and her sister, Charm, also 23 (both women were adopted). Charm was introduced to cosmetic procedures quite young, going under general anesthesia to change her “outie” belly button to an “innie” at the age of 10.

Plastic surgery is truly a family affair for the Niccoles — his sons, wife, father and cousins have all gone under his knife. This is despite the fact that the American Medical Association views treatment of family members, except in cases of emergencies, to be an unethical practice. Dr. Niccole, of course, has a different perspective. When asked by 20/20‘s Barbara Walters about giving his own daughter breast implants, he said,  ”who would give them time, that extra little look during surgery, more than I would?”

It’s hard to forget what else is happening here, though. Setting aside the (albeit very important) medical ethics for a second, how does a father performing cosmetic procedures on his daughters stack up against familial ethics? Is it really okay for a father to engrain in his children the idea that physical beauty is their biggest priority? Brittani, for instance, told Walters that she wanted implants to, “build her self-esteem — I didn’t have large breasts when I was younger and all my friends did…” Is that really a healthy message to send to your children? And what about the ‘ick’ factor of a father handling his daughters’ private parts?

So what do you think about a father performing his own child’s breast implant surgery? Sound off in the comments section below!

Sick, sad inappropriate and unnecessary. No one NEEDS this, unless for reconstructive purposes and an 18 year old is not sufficiently mature to make such a drastic decision. The father is harming her self esteem and contributing to the belief that women must conform to ridiculous and largely unattainable body type. What a putz!!!

Do you think there is any way for the father to get a real brain, instead of the silicone one he has???

Yuck. I don't care if he was the best doctor in the world, I don't think a dad should do breast surgery on his daughter.

At 18 - her body may not be completely developed yet and I would think the dad would build up her self esteem with words, instead of surgery!!!

i don't think it's such a good idea to do plastic surgery - something permanent, placing things in areas where they wouldn't naturally be - when the human body is constantly morphing over time. I think it could negatively effect the patient's development over the course of one's lifetime. I'm sure there are consequences to doing this in the long term...

i can understand a plastic surgeon giving his daughter implants what i dont understand is the father doing the surgery himself i think thats going a little bit to far.
