About Nipple/Areola Surgery
There are several factors that can alter the shape of your nipples and/or areolas, including breastfeeding, pregnancy, imbalanced hormones, changes in weight, and genetics. Both men and women may have abnormalities of the nipple and areolar area that can be improved with surgery.
Dr. James Nachbar performs procedures to correct, reduce, and reposition the nipples and/or areolas for a more symmetrical and natural look. He offers several procedures that can restore the natural shape of nipples that are overly large, misshapen, or inverted. Dr. Nachbar may also reposition or reshape the nipples and areolas after a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction surgery.

"Been to this office before and the staff is wonderful. The doctor is great and I love his work."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Apr 26, 2018
"If you are thinking about getting a breast augmentation, first of all, do it because it’s absolutely life changing and two, go to Dr. Nachbar because he is the absolute BEST and so is all of his staff! I had been thinking about wanting to have my breasts done for awhile. My mom had her breasts done by Dr. Nachbar awhile back and had great results, so I was already very confident in Dr. Nachbar! They have an amazing photo machine where it simulates what your breast augmentation would look like and it’s beyond helpful and really accurate. I’m 2 and 1/2 weeks post op and I seriously could not be happier. I finally have a chest that is proportionate to my body and I feel amazing and so confident! Dr. Nachbar picked the size based off what I told him I was wanting and they are absolutely perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing!! The staff is also sooo nice, helpful, and reassuring. For the surgery, I was really nervous because with the COVID-19 protocols, you can’t have any family with you for pre op. But Dr. Nachbar and the staff made me feel so at ease and comfortable, I ended up not having an ounce of nervousness. It was amazing. I really cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar!! He has so much experience and is an incredible surgeon!! Thank you Dr. Nachbar!!!!!"- M.M. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2020
"It’s been over 3 months from my surgery date and since day 1 post op I had zero regrets. From the appointments before the surgery to the actual surgery center and the post op appointments, everything went great. I love my results. Glad I did the research and found a great doctor. Everyone in Dr. Nachbar’s office is also so amazing! I would recommend him to anyone."- L.M. / Google / Sep 25, 2020
"Labiaplasty and Hood Reduction - I had a labiaplasty done on one side ten years back. My insurance covered it because of how uncomfortable it was. I used to pull on one side of my labia as a kid and it grew to some lengths from that and made things uncomfortable. That first surgery was with my OBYN and they took too much off that one side which caused a discolored sunken in the scar. I had an indent and white spot on my labia for 10 years before saving and having a plastic surgeon fix it. I had the wedge technique done to remove the scar on one side then the other side that's more swollen was trimmed to match. I also had my hood reduced. I'm very swollen but wanted to show others the whole process. It's an experience for sure so make sure you have a week off work. The healing is uncomfortable but so worth it! I'll post every week with updates! I am VERY bruised but not terribly swollen as I've seen. Ice is my best friend! So far I'm so happy about it. I cost me $5,800 in total and was completely out for the entire procedure. The entire staff is incredible! Dr. Nachbar in Phoenix Az. The first photo is the day of surgery. Will add before photos soon!"- B. / RealSelf / Sep 25, 2020
"Nachbar is the greatest and so is the staff! Everyone made me so comfortable and helped me through the whole process. Thank you so much! I'll never go anywhere else."- A.L. / Google / Sep 23, 2020
