The Unsurpassed Cosmetic Experience:

Doctor Matthew J. Nykiel and Butts by Design® are becoming one of the most recognized Cosmetic and Aesthetic Doctors. Why? Unlike other practices/establishments, Dr. Nykiel and Butts By Design® take a unique and different approach to Cosmetic Plastic Surgery: treat and embrace the person’s life as a whole. The unprecedented approach stops the focus on “just the surgery” and shifts the light to “the experience.” So what are the objectives Dr. Matthew J. Nykiel and his entire team focuses on:

Our Goals:

Empower Expression

What Does this Mean and Why Does it Matter? Because each person is unique and different. Individuality should be celebrated and not squashed. The tenement of empowering self-expression also limits judgments and creates a “safe” area. An area where individuals are free to discuss their goals, wants, and needs. The tenement also ensures Dr. Nykiel and his team listen to you and understand what brought you to their establishment.

Set Goals and Achieve People’s Goals

On the surface, this appears straightforward… and at times it is: a patient wanting a bigger butt gets a butt augmentation. However, there are a number of times that the individual is simply seeking a change. Or maybe there is a major life milestone the individual wants to celebrate. Whatever the reason(s), we will listen, and while we cannot guarantee a goal, we will help you to achieve your goals as best we are able.

Make People Happier and Create a Positive Experience

Why is this last? Because it is THE MOST IMPORTANT. There are times that surgery may not and is not the answer. It is our goal to make sure that we explain to you why you should not do it and what are better alternatives. It is our hope that by taking the extra time to explain this to you, we can provide a more meaningful and lasting positive experience to you.

Conversely, more often than not, cosmetic surgery will empower your self expression and achieve or further your goals. Our hope and goal is that by investing the time in you, we will make a positive difference in your life.

Now that you understand our mission and philosophy, let us discuss with you about Dr. Matthew J Nykiel’s Training and Expertise.

What Others Are Saying

5/5Review Rating

Love My New Butt

I went to Dr. Nykiel for a consult to see what he could do about my odd shaped flat butt. I always wanted a nice round butt but all the squats in the world didn’t work. I finally decided it was time to do something about it and I couldn’t be happier with my new butt! It matches the rest of my body now and I have a nice curvy shape.

Extremely Love My Results

After 3 Other consultations, I was still not convinced I had found my surgeon until my 4th and last consultation which was with Dr. Nykiel The moment I walked into his office I felt appreciated and loves. I’m now 2 weeks post-op and I extremely love my results.

What an Amazing Experience

What an amazing experience! Dr. Nykiel is a caring and thorough surgeon. The Office staff helpful and caring. All questions answered. Great care throughout! I would do it again in a heartbeat! The recovery time has been easy!

I Highly Recommend Him

I had a rapture of my implants done by a famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon (Dr. Brian Novack) but I decided to have it fixed by Dr. Nykiel. I was looking for plastic surgeons in our area and for some reason, I had this gut feeling about him. I found him to be professional, compassionate and his staff is manned by efficient people. I’m very pleased with the results and I highly recommend him!

My Experience Was Very Pleasant!

I highly recommend Dr. Nykiel to everyone! My experience was very pleasant! and the outcome of his work was excellent! Prior visiting his office, I visited a different plastic surgeon. I decided on proceeding with Dr. Nykiel because of the professional experience on the day of my evaluation. The excellent customer service proceeded on all of my future visits. The actual procedure was completed accurately with no problems!
