"I was made aware of Dr. Nathan when he fixed some less than ideal implants another surgeon had done for a friend of mine." "If my results are this good at 3 weeks, I cannot wait to see them in my after photos at my 3 month follow up visit!" "I'm very happy that I chose Dr. Nathan and I would recommend him to anyone else considering breast implant surgery."

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Amazing experience

Dr. Nathan was awesome! I had a tummy tuck and breast lift. I was so very nervous for just the initial consult but Dr. Nathan was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. The nurses were also very friendly and made me feel at ease. On the day of surgery I felt very comfortable and trusted Dr.Nathan. I couldn't be more thrilled with my results!!! I wish I would have done it years ago!!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Outstanding Experience!

A fabulous experience! Would highly recommend Dr Nathan for breast augmentation. He is very thorough explaining the selection of type, size & after care! Will definitely use him for other service. His staff is also very courteous & knowledgeable. Thank you for making this a anazing experience.

My results are amazing

Dr. Nathan is an exceptional doctor. I couldn't be happier with my procedure and the results. From the first appointment, to the procedure, and now the after care, Dr Nathan and his office are wonderful. I highly recommend his services. He does beautiful work!!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

46 and Needed a Change

Dr. Nathan is the absolute best! I've never had a doctor spend so much one on one time with me, and explain everything in such great detail. I was initially apprehensive and embarrassed to have someone see me naked, but he has an incredible bedside manner and made me feel extremely comfortable. He laid out realistic expectations, will not do anything he doesn't think will yield the best result, and everything he said would happen week by week has been right on target. I was a little nervous before the procedure, but after 5 minutes talking to him in the pre-op room of the hospital, I had zero concerns. The entire office staff, especially his medical assistant Carol, are top notch. Appointments are always on time, and I never ever feel rushed. I cannot say enough good things about him or his staff. If my results are this good at 3 weeks, I cannot wait to see them in my after photos at my 3 month follow up visit!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Positive experience, amazing surgeon

Dr. Nathan provides a very positive augmentation experience, from beginning through follow up care. I was well informed of every aspect of the procedure and nothing was unexpected. I was slightly unsure about the implant size as I already have a lot of breast tissue and was looking for more upward fullness without a fake implant look. Dr. Nathan was very understanding and the result is...

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 Tummy Tuck

I had a perfect experience from first consultation to post surgery visits

I felt very comfortable and pampered every preoperative and postoperative visit with Dr Nathan and his staff.I always left feeling better and more relaxed.They were knowledgeable and helpful preparing me for taking care of myself for best results. They assisted me in filling out insurance paperwork to care for myself if extra time from work was needed although i was back to work in 3 weeks.The...

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!
