Best doctor knowledge. Best staff. Incredible result. Changed my life and personality.

Breast Implant Revision

The doctor and his staff are very professional and knew me by name even being my second time in. I am very thrilled and excited to have my implant exchange.


Results exceeded my expectations. The procedure was affordable. My only regret was waiting so long. [Single best thing is...] I am now more comfortable since my procedure. The aesthetics became a bonus.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Nachbar made me very comfortable with my decision to have the surgery. I am happy with my results. [Single best thing is...] My pants fit now without pinching at the waistline!

Tummy Tuck

He was very caring, Professional, comfortable to work with. He was recommended by others that were extremely happy with him. Quick to be able to do what I want it done to my body. And he did an excellent job. Was available at anytime I needed help of answering questions or feel the need to talk. I highly recommend him

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.


The staff and doctor were very kind and helpful at putting my concerns and questions to rest. The office itself was very welcoming and comfortable. There was hardly any wait time while waiting to visit the doctor.

Breast Implant Removal

Thoroughness of doctor/ nurse communication. Skill of doctor.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Dr. Nachbars staff was very warm and welcoming. I felt zero pressure during my consultation. One of the best bedside manners I’ve ever seen.

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

Dr. Nachbar and his staff were wonderful. I felt very comfortable during the consultation. After the consultation was over I was very confident in choosing him as my surgeon and I do not regret that decision at all. I am only 8 days post op currently and I am already so pleased with my results.

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.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Nachbar makes himself available to his patients both before and after the procedure. He thoroughly answered all of my questions. I had some concerns after my procedure and he was very quick at responding to or answering any concerns/questions that I had. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Nachbar left on an international family vacation immediately following my surgery. I had a couple of concerns arise post op. He provided me with his email address which made it very easy for me to communicate with him. He responded almost immediately to my questions either by email or phone - depending on which was more appropriate. At no time did I feel as though I was bothering him. He was very kind and compassionate. He even called in a prescription for me from the other side of the world.

Breast Lift


Breast Augmentation

This was something I wanted to be done for years, I feel awesome and so thankful for Dr. Nachbar and staff.

Breast Lift

The implants were removed. The breasts left were proportionate. Scarring was even.


After losing weight, I was still unable to get rid of my belly fat. Dr. Nachbar performed liposculpture on my upper and lower abdomen, lower back, and flanks. I'm 6 weeks post-surgery and am very pleased with the shape of my body. Not only do I have a wasteline again and look better in my clothes, I feel great!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Nachbar made me feel very comfortable with an uncomfortable experience of vulnerability. His staff was excellent all the way start to finish. The way I feel about myself now. I hated my appearance before and the end result is EXACTLY what I envisioned in my mind
