Dr. Nachbar is the rock star plastic surgeons he did liposuction and a tummy tuck for me did a beautiful job and both he and his office staff are very friendly helpful professional and very compassionate

Tummy Tuck

The entire staff was amazing. When I first called in for pricing Daisy at the front desk spent a good half hour with me going every single step of the procedure and made me comfortable with moving forward with a consultation. She went above and beyond to help answer any questions and provide me with information. Cathy and Dr Nachbar made my consultation very personal and made me feel like I was the center of their attention, I did th feel like just another patient. My whole experience with Dr Nachbar and his staff was exceptional.

Liposuction Scar Revision

Dr. Nachbar was referred to me by a friend and neighbor. I had a tricky situation with poor scarring and he was able to remove the scar and provided special Embrace bandages to help with the healing. I've had several visits since, discussed my healing and other surgeries I might want/need and would highly recommend his office to anyone needing quality surgery with an amazing staff.

I knew before the initial consultation Dr. Nachbar was an excellent surgeon, and he did not disappoint. The work above and below the neck is fantastic and I could not be more pleased. Dr. makes himself available for questions should you need him, and the staff is friendly and responsive as well. Dr. Nachbar gives the impression he could perform surgery in his sleep, perfectly. Great surgeon.
