We strive to provide our patients the best experience we can.  When you call our office, you won't get a machine.  Our friendly staff are happy to answer all of your questions, and make an appointment for a complimentary consultation, so we can meet you and give you answers specific to your situation.  Dr. Nachbar will take the time to listen, and give you his best advice.  We know that the decision to have cosmetic surgery can be stressful, but it can also be very rewarding.  Throughout the entire process, we want to help you get the best result we can, with the smoothest, most comfortable experience possible.
Dr. Nachbar's practice is limited to cosmetic plastic surgery. While he does all types of cosmetic plastic surgery, he has a special interest in cosmetic plastic surgery of the body, especially breast augmentation and abdominoplasty, and his trademarked Post-Baby Tune-Up procedure for women whose bodies have been affected by one or more pregnancies.
We are happy to help you collect more information about plastic surgery.  The next step is to call my office at 480/314-1574 to make an appointment for a complimentary consultation.  My staff are all very nice and easy to talk to, and most of them have had cosmetic surgery themselves, and can give you their personal perspective.

I perform all surgery other than very minor surgery requiring only a local anesthetic in a Scottsdale Healthcare surgical facility. Scottsdale Healthcare operates the only JCAHO accredited hospitals in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I do not perform any major surgery in the office.
