At Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, we are passionate about providing physical and emotional comfort by surgically addressing facial irregularities. Whether you have experienced an injury to the face, are post–skin cancer treatment, or were born with an undesirable or dysfunctional nasal structure, we want to help.

Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sidney J. Starkman is known for his advanced skill in multiple rhinoplasty techniques and in reconstructive surgery, including facial laceration and fracture repairs. Our staff is trained specifically in facial plastic surgery procedures, and we use only twilight sedation so our patients have less nausea, fewer complications, and quicker recoveries. Beyond reconstructive and medically necessary procedures, we offer a vast array of cosmetic plastic surgeries for the face, including cheek and lip augmentation, facelifts, neck lifts, and blepharoplasty. To complement your reconstructive or cosmetic plastic surgery, we also provide nonsurgical services, such as dermal fillers, BOTOX, Kybella, photofacials, laser skin resurfacing, and chemical peels.

Dr. Starkman is also very involved in community support and is a longtime women’s rights advocate. He has been a member of Face to Face, a nonprofit dedicated to pro bono facial reconstruction for domestic violence victims, for many years. In 2019, he established his own organization, Saving Face, in Arizona. Saving Face provides the same type of outreach and pro bono services to local women, men, and children who have experienced facial injury due to domestic abuse. If you are interested in becoming an applicant or a partner surgeon in Saving Face, please navigate to our full Saving Face page under the About tab.


View Update Virtual Consultation


We are excited to announce that we have resumed seeing patients on a limited basis for select visits and procedures. The majority of our new patient consultations and follow-up checks will be done via telemedicine to minimize patient traffic to the office.

Patient safety has always been our number one priority, and we are implementing the following policies to meet and exceed safety standards for our patients. We greatly appreciate your compliance and understanding.

  1. Dr. Starkman and all clinical staff will wear N95 masks and eye protection for the entirety of each patient’s visit.
  2. Patient appointment confirmation must be completed 24 hours prior to the appointment.
  3. Patient screening will consist of a screening questionnaire and a temperature check. Any patient with risk factors or a fever will be rescheduled.
  4. We are instituting a “No Waiting in the Waiting Room” Policy. Patients will be immediately screened and escorted to their private exam room.
  5. Surgical-grade air recirculators have been installed in each patient room to recycle each room’s air every 4 minutes.
  6. Guests, children, or visitors other than the patient will be limited.
  7. Pre-operative COVID-19 testing will be obtained 4-5 days prior to any scheduled procedure.
  8. Patients will enter our main entrance and exit out of our side exit. The one-way flow of traffic will allow for a comprehensive cleaning of the waiting room prior to the next patient.

We appreciate the understanding and patience of all of you. We can’t wait to see you all again. Dr. Starkman and Staff
