Dr. Larry S Nichter has the following 2 specialties
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Dr. Larry Nitcher is an extremely knowledgeable, highly skilled, sincere, detailed orientated plastic and a brilliant surgeon who can provide you with incredible outcome in a short period of time. More importantly, he is truly compassionate and considerate about his patients, their well being and safety. Because of such outstanding qualities that he posses, I was able to achieve an expedited recovery with minimal discomfort while achieving amazing results that I could not imagine. Furthermore, his office staffs perform their responsibilities to the fullest and are as caring, helpful and professional as Dr. Nitcher. I feel very lucky to have met Dr. Nitcher. He is truly an EXCEPTIONAL plastic surgeon that you can trust and I highly recommend him.
I came into his office wanting to redo my 11 year old breast augmentation. I wanted a lift and smaller implants. My breasts are even bigger than they were, and while they are closer together, the nipples are lower and the scar is huge. Not to mention they look deformed under the muscle. My girlfriend had a face/neck lift that resulted in huge scars in her scalp from large staples and stitches. She lost most of the hair surrounding her face and had to wear a wig for over a year. Her main concern was her neck, which doesn't look any better than before the operation. I honestly don't want to even give him one star.
First of all he is a board certified plastic surgeon that has trained other plastic surgeons in his career. He had a lenghty consultation with me and explained the what I should expect from my facelift, necklift and blepharoplasty procedures. He answered all my questions completely - his whole office treats you like "family". I couldn't be happier with my results - very natural - "I'm back !"
Dr. Nichter is GREAT. His surgeon skills are top notch and he spends time with you, cares about what you're trying to obtain. Doesn't "sell" anything, just wants to help. He always follows up and I couldn't recommend him more highly. I've had two surgeries with him in 8 years and would only use him.
So glad I discovered Dr. Nichter and trusted him to perform the procedure that took away all the wrinkles, sagging and jowls from my neck, chin and jawline!! I'm very active and only felt old when I saw my face in the mirror. Now I look as young as I feel!The best part of my surgery is that I went through it with ease with only the local anesthetic Dr. Nichter injects to numb the areas around the incisions. I'm not able to tolerate most drugs and after explaining my concern to Dr. Nichter I was able to go through the entire procedure without taking any Ativan. Not only did I breeze through the surgery but when it was over I was alert with no side affects from drugs. If you're concerned about taking any type of drug like I am, Dr. Nichter understands and with his extremely careful and gentle nature during surgery it's very easy to go through the Lite Lift without Ativan if you prefer. The evening after the surgery I took Extra Strength Tylenol to manage the discomfort as the local wore off. My healing process has gone remarkably fast. The sutures were well hidden and I experienced little to no bruising. A few days after the procedure no one even noticed that I'd had surgery. As early as that point I was extremely pleased with the results. If you are looking for a highly reputable, skilled and leading edge plastic surgeon, if you want to literally take years (no exaggeration!) off the appearance of your neck and jawline, and know that if you chose, you have the option to do it without a single side affect from drugs, then I can't say enough to highly recommend the Lite Lift and Dr. Larry Nichter. Don't be wary of the price. I researched and received consultations from a few other surgeons I felt were high caliber and their fees were far too much for me to afford. I always believe you get what you pay for and don't "settle" for anything but the best when it comes to medical attention. I can assure you Dr. Nichter is every bit and beyond the caliber and credentials of other plastic surgeons. I am delighted with the results of my Lite Lift! Dr. Nichter, Stephanie Hyman, Surgery Consultant, and Dr. Nichter's entire staff are outstanding.
