Dr. Nicole Patel

Dr. Nicole Patel brings a new perspective to Tulsa and to all of cosmetic surgery.  Her philosophy and approach to improving and maintaining one’s appearance is healthy and “natural”. Dr. Patel believes in the importance of a healthy lifestyle, in both mind and body. Here are some of the surgeon’s thoughts:


“Cosmetic surgery is a fascinating field of medicine, especially given the advances technology offers both the patient and the physician.” Dr. Patel feels that combining the best equipment with excellent surgical technique produces the finest results.  “We can do so much today, and by incorporating the most effective lasers available on the market, I can obtain amazing outcomes for my patients.”


But Dr. Patel feels strongly about not taking cosmetic surgery lightly. “Trying to change a physical attribute may not make a patient happy in some instances; this realization is something many patients do not consider. The pursuit of surgery or other cosmetic alteration may not be in a patient’s best interest, whether that is because he or she has unrealistic expectations or because he or she is not happy with other aspects of his or her life. I try to understand what my patients would like to change and see how I can help.  As a cosmetic surgeon, I feel it is very important to take the time to understand a patient’s motivations for what they are seeking.”


“The pressure to look a certain way seems to be greater than ever. It is especially difficult for women to feel good about themselves given the “standards” society portrays as normal.” Dr. Patel understands the pressure women feel to meet this expectation, and she can relate to the changes women go through during pregnancy and childbirth. Setting realistic goals and incorporating healthy living are priorities for Dr. Patel. This is something she attempts to incorporate in her own life, as she is a wife, a mother, and a surgeon, and finding balance is important.


“Beauty and confidence are more closely linked than people often realize.” To find balance in both attaining your ideal face and body and having a positive self-image are goals of Aesthetic Surgery Institute of America.
