Amazing!
Dr. Nachbar and his staff far exceeded my expectations! I have never had an experience with a plastic surgeon so when I was warmly welcomed into Dr. Nachbar’s office by his staff I was very pleasantly surprised. Every appointment was thorough, I never waited a single minute in the waiting room. Daisy and the other female staff at the office were so down to earth and made me feel very comfortable. I had a labiaplasty done, which normally might be uncomfortable to talk about. Dr. Nachbar was so thorough in the consultation and pre-op appointments and made me feel very comfortable. Surgery was quick and I am currently recovering. The results were amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Nachbar and his office!

Talented surgeon
Dr Nachbar is exceptional at what he does. He is an artist and created a beautiful result for me. I felt so well cared for from my consult, through pre op, surgery and post op care. His staff is amazing and made me feel comfortable, handled any concerns about recovery, and were just overall a fantastic support team to Dr Nachbar. This is a life changing experience and I am beyond grateful for Dr Nachbar’s experience, precision, and for giving me better results than I even imagined possible. Drainless is the absolute way to go, but very few surgeons have that expertise, training and skill. If you’re on the fence do yourself a favor and book a consult with this double board certified, extremely capable and talented surgeon. I wish I had done this ten years ago!

Dr nachbar and his medical staff are very professional.This was my second surgery with Dr Nachbar and during both surgeries I felt like all my concerns were alleviated and my results were far better than I had expected. During my follow up visits with Dr Nachbar, he and his staff were very attentive and took a great interest I my well-being.

Labiaplasty
Dr. Nachbar and his staff provided the best care a woman could ask for. He was professional, informative, and always had great bed side manner. His staff were the friendliest I’ve ever experienced in a doctors office. From the first visit (consultation) all the way to the last follow up appointment after surgery everyone was amazing. Surgery went well and his office was very responsive when I had questions the day after surgery about my recovery. Dr. Nachbar even personally called me to make sure I was recovering well a couple days later. I had labiaplasty surgery done and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. It’s actually better than I expected. I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar!

I came to Dr. Nachbar for a labiaplasty. Dr. Nachbar and his staff are absolutely amazing! He has such wonderful bedside manner and everyone in the office made me feel very comfortable. They were very patient with me, took the time to understand my desired outcome and explained the steps of my surgery, as well as recovery. It’s been a great experience for me and I’m thrilled with my outcome! My only regret is that I wish I had done labiaplasty surgery sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar - he’s board-certified, highly trained and skilled and truly cares about his patients!!

I am about 2.5 weeks out from labiaplasty (minora and majora) with Dr. Nachbar and am so far, extremely happy with the results. He has patiently listened to and responded to my questions and concerns. He has also made me feel comfortable about the procedure - before during and after the surgery. I have had very little swelling and although the healing process is a uncomfortable and it does take awhile, I can already tell that this procedure will be life changing for me. Excessive skin in this area can be really painful and times and often uncomfortable, particularly if you are active as I am. It is amazing not to have to worry about this any more. My stitches are healing nicely and I am already able to take walks and begin being active again. At 58, I always thought this type of surgery was more for younger women concerned about aesthetics. But for those of us that have long experienced pain due to excess skin in this area, it is really such a relief to have it done.

I highly recommend Dr Nachbar to everyone! I had breast augmentation done in 2002. I felt well informed, supported and was given realistic expectations from my very first consultation appointment. The procedure went very well and my breast implants gave me no issues for many years - far longer than expected. In 2020, I had my implants removed (not due to anything other than life and perspective changes) and again the entire process was a huge success. Dr Nachbar and his staff explained everything clearly and confidently and were there for me every step of the way - even answering the phone himself during a quick post-op call during off-hours. I always felt valued and respected. Should a need for another plastic surgery arise in the future, Dr Nachbar is who I will call again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr Nachbar. You are the best!

I had Labiaplasty done by Dr. Nachbar and my experience was amazing. He spent plenty of time with me both before and after the procedure and his communication was excellent. My results are perfect and I'm thinking about having another procedure done by Dr. Nachbar. He does both the pre-op and post-op visits and truly cares about his patients - that is evident in the way he spends time listening to you. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon as his attention to detail is top notch.

I chose Dr. Nachbar to do my rhinoplasty procedure, and I can honestly say he exceeded all expectations! His staff was incredibly kind, attentive and knowledgeable and you could tell that Dr. Nachbar loves his job and puts the safety and health of all patients first. 5 months after my procedure I feel more confident than ever and continue to experience the same exceptional care at my follow up appointments

My overall experience with Dr. Nachbar was amazing! The consultation for my labiaplasty was quick and easy, he answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. His staff was so nice and helpful and really made the entire process much less intimidating for me. I had waited years to finally have this procedure done and I am so happy with the results I wish I would have done it sooner! I would recommend Dr. Nachbar to anyone considering cosmetic surgery!

I asked Dr. Nachbar to perform extensive work, above and below the neck. The quality of his work is obvious even as I am healing ... rather quickly I should say. Dr. and staff are crisp, professional, yet very supportive and always ready to listen to your concerns and answer questions, even on his personal cell (which I can't bring myself to do ... he has a life). Dr. Nachbar's skill and attention to detail are amazing, and I am very grateful to have found him. I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar

I had a horrible experience. I went to him because I was dissatisfied with excess tissue around my clitoral hood. Instead of focusing on my real goals and wishes he removed the majority of my labia minora. My GYN thought it was awful and thought I should sue him. I had to go to CA and have Dr Alter repair me to the extent he could . $10k In addition to the $5k I gave him. He told me it was great I was getting a second opinion but apparently didn't care about the result because he never responded
