5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing Experience. 21 yrs Breast Aug.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Nathan and his staff. Being a younger-than-average plastic surgery patient, I was initially apprehensive about going to consultations, but Dr. Nathan and his staff made me feel comfortable from the start. He walked me through the entire operation as well as aftercare and literally answered all of my questions before I even asked them. My nurse, Carol,...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Amazing Experience; Perfect Results!

Dr. Nathan took the time to understand my concerns, give me honest and sincere suggestions, and produced amazing results through liposuction (or as I call it, mommy belly be gone!) Not to mention, his team is second to none! I work so hard at the gym, eat well, and chase my boys. Dr. Nathan gave back to me, my pre-mom bod and much needed self-confidence!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

So grateful for Dr. Nathan

I went to see Dr. Nathan for a breast aug revision. I had a leak and wanted to be smaller. He listened and was successful in getting all the silicone out and put in smaller implants that noteably look much better. I am so happy with my experience!

I had an amazing experience!

I had a breast augmemtation procedure in February of 2017 and I was blown away from the minute I walked through the door at St.Louis Cosmetic Surgery Center.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Successful experience

Very personable, upfront physician who makes sure you are knowledgable about your options and what the treatment will involve. I felt very comfortable and had all my questions answered and fears assuaged prior to my surgery. I trusted that the best possible work would be done. The staff was equally open and direct in their communication, which I appreciate greatly.

Amazing experience!

I had Breast Augmentation. I had multiple consults and choice Dr Nathan for his professionalism and staff friendliness. He and his staff explained everything in detail and made me feel extremely comfortable. As a Hairdresser, I wanted little downtime. Went back to work 6 days after surgery and worked 6 hour days no problem. There was not a lot of pain at all. I felt like I was uncomfortable...
