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

Tummy Tuck

The office staff was very friendly. I never felt uncomfortable. Dr. Nachbar was very helpful in answering my questions.


Daisy is a gem. Friendly and puts a client at ease. Dr. Nachbar has not only the desire to make his clients happy but the skills and artistry.

Tummy Tuck

The doctor was professional and an obvious expert in his field. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and went above and beyond taking what felt like extra time to make sure they covered all my needs and concerns. I'm looking forward to this surgery.


Dr listens and makes me feel very comfortable

Breast Augmentation

Love the results. Comfortable with process, staff, and office. Results are better than expected

Face Lift

As great as the staff and accommodations are, the ultimate satisfaction comes from the outcome of the surgery. The outcome is what reigns supreme. I am very happy with the outcome. When you do not feel old or tired you don’t want to look it. The procedure allows me to look how I feel. Thank you.

Breast Lift

Friendly office, staff, and surgeon. I feel like myself again since after having two children.

Breast Reduction

The staff was very informative, professional, courteous and proficient. I felt comfortable and relaxed all things considered where surgery is concerned. I am a PACU nurse and was impressed with the overall genuine care and concern of all staff and especially Dr. Nachbar. He is truly a credit to his profession. His performance as a surgeon is incomparable. And, bedside manner is refreshing. He is thorough, knowledgeable and is always there when needed no matter how small the problem. Never intimidating, makes one feel relaxed and in good hands. I know my share of surgeons and would, without a doubt, recommend him for any cosmetic procedure or surgery. Thank you to all. You are a great team!!

Mommy Makeover

The no drain tummy tuck is amazing. The recovery is much faster and I did not have much pain at all. . The experience felt real and not fake as other surgeons I interviewed with. The staff and Doctor made me feel like family.

Breast Implant Revision

I am so physically COMFORTABLE, whereas in the past I had painful, hard lumps on my chest that I tried to disguise and support with super tight exercise bras. I love that I look good and natural in and out of clothes. . I have had breast implants since 1986-- many surgeries because of complications-- capsular contractions. My breasts were always too high and my nipples were too low. I've had areola incisions in addition to 2 scars on each breast below the nipple to take out and insert new breast implants. I had rippling on my left breast that looked awful. I had 2 mounds with out of place nipples. Enter Dr. Nachbar... I went to him based on research I did on plastic surgeons in Scottsdale Arizona and their specialties, and credentials. He gave me real (albeit small) looking breasts. I went from 450 cc to 255cc, from a C cup to an A cup and my breasts have never looked so good, so real, so well- proportioned to my tiny frame. Dr Nachbar also did a breast lift, so I have many scars all over, but they stil.look great and scars heal! I can finally feel confident in lingerie, bathing suits, and all clothes for that matter. My breasts are so even and so well- formed-- like the perfect breasts on a mannequin. I couldn't be happier or feel more comfortable in my own skin. I will be happy to talk with anyone who is considering surgery with Dr Nachbar, my before and after pics will be available to them, and I will refer everyone I can to go with Dr Nachbar ( he cost more than my other consultations, but is well worth it), and any future cosmetic surgeries I do will be done by the miracle worker, Dr Nachbar.

Face Lift

Friendly staff, ease of parking, entire staff of professionals but most important... the final results. Top surgeon. Outstanding results.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Nachbar performed my previous surgery 15 yrs ago and he did an excellent job.

Tummy Tuck

Outstanding care throughout.

Lip Enhancement

Very professional and straight to the point. Very welcoming staff.

Breast Augmentation

Amazing service! :)
