Laser Tattoo Removal

For me it was the way Dr. Nachbar navigated through the procedure with expertise, gentleness and informative. I like the scheduling, the texts and gray office service as well

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Nachbar was very open to my opinions and available by phone even on weekends if I needed to ask a question. The office staff was also always cheerful and available to answer any questions and share their experiences with me. Most of all, I love the results. The size is just what I wanted and they are very equal in size and shape.

Thigh Lift

Dr. Nachbar goes above and beyond being an excellent Doctor. He treats his patient's like they are his only. He's extremely patient, provides clear and precise communication, and ALWAYS speaks directly to you as the patient. I have never met a surgeon who will call you ANY TIME you have questions or concerns! Plus my procedure has turned out wonderful. Dr. Nachbar gave me new legs after about 110-120 weight loss! He's an excellent surgeon.

Breast Implant Removal

I expressed my urgency for removal of my failed implant. Dr. Nachbar was my first choice based upon his credentials and level of experience. He performed my surgery and I felt the outcome was to my expectations. [Single best thing is...] He informed me with detailed instructions on how he would perform my implant removal. He took away all my fears. He advised me on what to expect from this procedure.

Tummy Tuck

I loved the “no drains” system Dr. Nachbar uses. Eight weeks later my scars are fading and looking great. The entire office are great, so nice and attentive. [Single best thing is...] I have a flat tummy for the first time in 30 years!

Tummy Tuck

I was highly satisfied with my drainless tummy tuck experience with Dr. Nachbar because the tummy tuck procedure went smoothly. I had very minimal pain and my recover was fast. I had surgery on a Thursday and although I was walking slower than normal, I was able to go back to work the following Monday. The best thing about the surgery was the results! I am a fit person and my post baby stomach did not match the rest of my body, now, I feel like my stomach matches the rest of me.
