In addition to our highly-trained and experienced board-certified plastic surgeons, South Coast Plastic Surgery is proud to have a friendly, knowledgeable and compassionate support staff who will help make your entire experience as comfortable as possible.

As the South Coast Plastic Surgery OR Manager, Shelly Nicks is responsible for coordinating the surgical schedule, ensuring patient safety, and taking part in every surgery as the scrub technician assisting Dr. Song and Dr. Dorfman. She also works in the surgery center assisting patients throughout their surgery process from pre-operative, inter-operative and post operative care. She is trained in patient safety, infection control, emergency protocols and is certified in advanced cardiac life support. And with 25 years of experience working in outpatient surgical centers with various other plastic surgeons, Shelly’s experience in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery has been a tremendous asset to our practice.
