The mission statement of Dr. Starkman and our staff states that “the personal relationships that we share with with each of our patients is our rewards, and also our tool to meet and exceed their unique needs”. Personalized care and treatment plans for every single one of our patients is the most important reason for our extremely high rates of patient satisfaction. The beginning of every patient’s cosmetic surgery journey begins in the consultation room, where Dr. Starkman will discuss in detail the patient’s concerns that brought them to our office. The discussion will also include the recommended treatments, and every detail into the expectations before, during, and after surgery. Dr. Starkman also uses Mirror computer simulation imaging. Computer simulation imaging is not only a useful tool to demonstrate the expected results, but also to make sure that the surgeon and patient have the same goals in mind. Dr. Starkman does not rush the process and places an extraordinary emphasis on the pre-operative discussions. Additional seating is provided in the room, as patients are encouraged to bring family and friends with them. The room is designed to place patients at ease in a comfortable scenario, and one-way windows provide a comfortable yet discrete setting.
Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery, founded by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Sidney J. Starkman, will be opening in Scottsdale, AZ in the summer of 2019. The brand new, state-of-the-art facility features a fully equipped on-site operating room. Every focus has been made to provide patient privacy, including a side entrance for post-operative patients who desire a discrete method of entering and exiting the office without waiting in the reception area.
All of our surgeries and minor procedures are performed in our state-of-the-art operating room. The patient rooms are furnished with guest chairs, and we encourage our patients to bring along a friend or family member. Patients and visitors to Dr. Starkman’s surgical center will feel at ease and assured in our reception area with its sophisticated, traditional décor. If any wait time is necessary, comfortable couches and chairs are available, as well as a refreshments station, reading material, and skin care product displays to browse.

The plastic surgery office of Dr. Sidney Starkman features two examination rooms where Dr. Starkman will see patients as part of their initial consultation, followups, and minor treatments such as injectables. In the examination room, our nurses will assist with collecting past medical history, followup notes, and any specific concerns that will be addressed with Dr. Starkman. It is in these rooms, where post-surgical dressings are removed and patients are able to witness the results of their procedures for the first time.
Our MedSpa services are designed to deliver the best tailor-made skin care treatments in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Each appointment includes a consultation and treatment recommendations by our licensed medical aesthetician.

Our reception area is beautifully appointed with furnishings and decor to make our patients at ease while they prepare to meet with Dr. Starkman and our staff. Please welcome yourselves to a refreshment at our coffee and beverage station. Our staff is dedicated to making all of our visitors feel welcomed as they await to begin their appointment.

Our surgical suite is the space where Dr. Starkman performs all of his facial plastic surgery procedures, on site within the office. The surgery area meets and exceeds the highest levels of safety standards for our patients, with a pre-operative bay, nurse’s station, recovery area, and sterilization rooms.
We offer a single-surgeon, single-subspecialty AAAASF-accredited surgery center, assuring privacy and exceptional safety. This center offers the same safety measures of a hospital with the individual care of a private surgery center. As a result, we have an outstanding safety record for all our patients. Unlike any hospital or surgery center, our surgical facility utilizes staff and equipment specialized only for facial plastic surgery procedures. Board-certified anesthesiologists are available for procedures using sedation.
Only IV sedation is used, instead of general anesthesia, for a quicker and more comfortable recovery following surgery. The on-location surgery center offers patients a discrete and specialized setting for their procedures.
