A plastic surgeon in California is keeping it in the family by performing work on his young daughters -- even giving one teen breast implants.
Dr. Michael Niccole, founder of the CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, Calif., gave his daughter Brittani, now 22, breast implants when she was 18. Brittani also had a rhinoplasty, ABC's show "20/20" reported.
Niccole told "20/20" he also operated on his daughter Charm, now also 22, when she was 10 to turn her “outtie” belly button into an “innie.” Both girls receive regular Botox injections to prevent wrinkles and undergo other cosmetic procedures.
Niccole said he has performed surgery on other family members as well and felt comfortable operating on his daughters.
“Who would give them the time -- that extra little look during surgery -- more than I would?” Niccole told "20/20."
Though some may feel girls Brittani and Charm's age shouldn't be getting plastic surgery, Dr. Niccole defended his work as "maintenance."
“I’m not changing their looks in any means. They want maintenance,” he told "20/20." “They don’t want to get old. They want to stay young.”
