Dr. Nikko's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nikko "Defining beautiful bodies and healthy skin is Dr. Nikko’s philosophy. With more than 15 years of experience in cosmetic surgery and dermatology, Dr. Nikko offers the highest quality of care combined with the latest advances in medicine. Anthony P. Nikko was born in Saigon, Vietnam and migrated to the United States at eight years of age. Dr. Nikko has always been fascinated with the anatomy and function of the human body and developed a passion for the skin and the beauty of the body. Dr. Nikko obtained his Biology degree from the University of Texas in Austin and received his Medical Degree from the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He then conducted his Internal Medicine internship and specialty training in dermatology at Baylor College of Medicine. He obtained further fellowship training in cosmetic surgery, specializing in aesthetic surgery of the body and face. Dr. Nikko chose to specialize in dermatology because it allows him to use his visual skills to diagnose and treat skin conditions. Thus, sub-specializing in cosmetic surgery enables him to use his visual and hand skills that he developed during his training in reconstructive surgery after skin cancer treatments. His background in dermatology and cosmetic surgery allows him to treat patients with skin conditions who seek cosmetic surgery with very a unique touch. Traveling all over the world for his extensive training, Dr. Nikko has been able to perfect his cosmetic and skin techniques and discover the newest advances. From east coast to west coast, Dr. Nikko’s broad education includes clinics and studies in Stanford, San Diego, New York, Utah and Japan among others. Known as the scar-less doctor and innovator of many cosmetic techniques in Houston, Dr. Nikko performs numerous surgical procedures not only to cosmetically enhance but also to achieve a natural, youthful look without jeopardizing the beauty of the skin. Anthony Nikko, MD is a proud member of the American Board of Dermatology, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and the American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery. "
