Scottsdale, AZ is a fantastic place to get away, relax, and reset. From its stunning landscapes and views to its premier shopping districts and world-class spas and resorts, Scottsdale is an ideal vacation destination. You can take a guided road trip through the gorgeous desert, spend the day luxuriating at the spa, or explore Scottsdale’s many art galleries. Arizona’s art scene is thriving and diverse — you can experience contemporary, modern, Western, and amazing Native American works. Not only is Scottsdale, AZ a great vacation spot, but it is also the perfect place to recuperate for a few days after plastic surgery at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery. Most of Dr. Starkman’s patients are local, but for those who travel from other cities and states, he loves to recommend some of his favorite restaurants and top hotels.
Our staff looks forward to meeting you and discussing your goals. We strive to keep our appointments on time as scheduled. Prior to your appointment, we encourage you to fill out the patient forms that are located in our patient portal so you can accelerate your check-in process. Please complete the forms prior to your appointment. If you are unable to complete them, then it is recommended that you arrive at your appointment 15 – 30 minutes early so you can have ample time to fill out the appropriate forms.
PREPARING FOR SURGERY
Complementary Photo Screening:
Before scheduling a consultation, we will first have you send in a few photos for Dr. Starkman to assess.
Scheduling a Virtual Consultation:
We are typically booked out about 4 weeks for the soonest available consultation date. We will charge a consultation fee and schedule a time with you that works with your schedule.
Our Patient Care Coordinator will be reaching out to you about 2 weeks before the consultation to answer any questions you have.
The Zoom consultation will be an hour long. You will first meet with one of our nurses to discuss patient medical history. A majority of the meeting will be discussing surgical options with Dr. Starkman and answering any questions you have. At the end, our Patient Care Coordinator will finish the meeting by emailing you a quote based on the procedure you and Dr. Starkman spoke about. She will answer any questions you may have about the quote and schedule.
We are typically booked out about 6-8 weeks in advance.
One month before your surgery:
You should plan to see your primary care physician to receive basic tests and labs, receive an EKG, and get cleared for IV sedation.
Two weeks before your surgery:
We will have a virtual pre-op with you to discuss the final details of your procedure, go over all supplies and medications related to the procedure, and answer any questions.
One day before your surgery:
You will come into the office to meet Dr. Starkman in person where he can answer any last-minute questions. You will also be meeting with one of our nurses to go over medications and supplies.
AFTER YOUR SURGERY
We ask that you stay in the local area for 7-10 days (the length of your stay depends on your procedure). This allows Dr. Starkman to follow up with you, check on your recovery, and ensure that you’re healing well. Once you are cleared by Dr. Starkman, you may fly home, and we can do further follow-ups virtually.
