Inverted Nipple Repair

Dr. Nachbar & his staff are amazing & make you feel comfortable, & not rushed.

Breast Reduction

The procedure turned out exactly as I had discussed with the doctor and he personally called me the following day to check on me. I have had a few questions during my recovery and I would email the office and I always got very prompt responses and they made sure my question was answered so I understood and never made me feel bad for asking. I almost immediately had relief from my back and neck pain and it has made a huge difference in how I feel about my appearance.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Nachbar did an amazing job on my surgery! I was self conscious about my chest for so long and he just changed it all for me. He made me feel comfortable doing this as it was my first surgery ever. Even his nurses are wonderful and I couldn’t be more happy that I went to Dr. Nachbar. My breasts look nothing like they used to which is exactly what I wanted. I received implants and a lift. Dr. Nachbar and his team made me feel comfortable and at ease with the whole experience which is great for someone with high anxiety like me.

Dr. Nachbar and his staff were so helpful, comforting and responsive throughout the entire process. Any questions I ever had were immediately addressed, and I was always encouraged to inquire anytime I had problems/questions. This was my first experience with plastic surgery, so I had some hesitancy, but Dr. Nachbar and staff really normalized the entire experience, making me feel supported and giving me a very positive experience. [Single best thing is...] The result!! When I look down, I see a flat stomach and no rolls!!

Breast Augmentation

From start to finish everyone was so polite, patient very informative and made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Nachbar and his staff called and checked on me multiple times during the first couple of days of my recovery. Dr. Nachbar emphasized if at any time I needed anything or had any questions to please call him directly. For I was very thankful and knew I was in great hands!

It looks amazing and healed perfectly. I waited many years to finally have this procedure and I'm so happy everything went so smoothly thanks to Dr Nachbar and his team.

Mommy Makeover

[Single best thing is...] Doctor Nachbar is wonderful. He’s not a typical surgeon who has a big ego and little bedside manner. He is a kind person. That’s a rare find these days. . Doctor is very professional, yet approachable. His staff is knowledgeable and helpful. They were always available for my questions and concerns.

Breast Reduction

The staff was amazing and not only is Dr Nachbar amazing at what he does but he has an amazing beside manor!

Breast Implant Revision

He was very careful to save the sensation in my Nipples as he extricated my old/messy original silicone implants. He minimized most of my incisions to areas beneath the breast where scars are almost undetectable. After surgery, he followed up with weekly appointments for about 2 months to observe my healing and answer any of my concerns. I’m so pleased with my results. The best thing resulted after my surgery is that even though the nipples were removed and reattached, I have feelings in both.

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
