5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Nathan is Amazing. The Best Breast Revision Surgery Experience.

Dr. Nathan exceeded all my expectations. I went to get a second opinion from Dr. Nathan after my symptoms and claims were previously dismissed by my original surgeon, who had performed a breast augmentation on me 15 months prior. My original highly reputable St. Louis surgeon made me feel like I was "crazy." Right after my 1 year post op, I started developing severe pain in my left breast. A...

Very Happy With My Results

I had a previous breast augmentation that appeared to be leaking. I went to Dr. Nathan and he gave me choices of having the implants removed and replaced or just removed. I decided to have them replaced and also a lift. Dr. Nathan encouraged me not to go as big as my implants were before. I took that into consideration and went with his recommendation. I am so happy with my results. He...

He is the most wonderful doctor!

Dr. Nathan is an amazing doctor. I found out that I had ruptured implants. He got back to me immediately when I called the office. He is so kind, easy to communicate with him made me feel very at ease. He gave me all the options. I chose to have the implants removed and replaced. This was not an easy decision. He was very informative and answered all my questions. After my surgery he...

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!!!

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...
