5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty, scar revision, fat transfer to breasts - Scottsdale, AZ

Over the last few years I have been reading about labiaplasty partially for cosmetic reasons but mostly for comfort and a more positive sexual experience. The tugging of the excess skin was the biggest issue for me. I was considering a few different doctors, but after meeting Dr. Nachbar last year I felt that I did not need to continue looking for a doctor. It's not the most enjoyable...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Tummy Tuck with Breast Lift/Reduction, 30 years old, no kids

HE IS AMAZING!!! His staff is also amazing. I am so happy I chose him. He always gave me real recommendations and wasn't out to just get my money. I love how someone is available to me after surgery 24/7. Also, when his office is open they actually answer the phone. I'd only go back to him if I chose to do more surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty Results - Scottsdale, AZ

I'm a 36 year old woman who had been uncomfortable with my labia for many years. I'd always had larger labia, which made me feel less sexy. Also, sex & certain types of exercise was painful. I did ALOT of research before deciding to go in for a consultation with Dr. Nachbar. His staff was wonderful & made me feel extremely comfortable. After speaking with Dr. Nachbar, I knew this...
