Facial Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ

If you live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, can help you decide on the best facial plastic surgery procedure to make you look and feel happy and healthy.

What Is Facial Surgery?

Facial surgery encompasses a variety of different procedures on either the face or neck, which help to improve the patient’s overall appearance. Cosmetic facial surgery can be performed to eliminate the visible effects of aging, such as sagging skin or bags under the eyes, whereas facial reconstructive surgery is generally performed to restore a person’s appearance after an accident or correct a physical or genetic deformity. Sometimes multiple procedures may need to be performed to achieve optimum results.

Facial Surgery Benefits

  • Create a more youthful appearance
  • Rejuvenation of facial features
  • Tighten skin and muscles that have begun to sag or relax over the years
  • Create a more positive body image for the patient

Who Makes A Good Candidate For Facial Surgery?

Everyone’s reasons for undergoing facial surgery are different. Patients who have facial deformities or other issues that can be corrected surgically make the best candidates. The most important thing to remember when going in for surgery is to maintain a positive attitude and to keep your expectations optimistic but realistic when it comes to the final results.

Types of Facial Surgery Offered

At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, offers the following types of facial plastic surgery:


A facelift, technically known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It can correct some of the telltale signs of aging, including sagging skin and sun damage, thus making you look younger.

Revision Facelift

A facelift can reverse the effects of aging, but it can’t stop them altogether. Therefore, a secondary facelift, also called a revision facelift, may be necessary to reverse any issues that have developed since your initial procedure. Or, if the initial procedure was not performed adequately, a revision facelift may be necessary to correct the botched procedure or any complications it may have caused, to give you a more natural look.

Mini Facelift

If you don’t need or prefer not to commit to a complete facelift, you can choose instead to get a less invasive “mini facelift.” These generally focus on one single facial feature, such as a cheek tuck, submentoplasty (neck liposuction) or a mini lift.


Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a “nose job”, is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures performed. In fact, there are a variety of different issues that rhinoplasty can address or correct, such as reshaping the nose, removing bumps or other physical anomalies, or simply making the entire nose larger or smaller. It can also change the angle of the nose or the width of the nostrils. Many people are amazed by the incredible effect that a simple procedure on the nose can have on the overall look of the entire face.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Much like a revision facelift, secondary or revision rhinoplasty is done to correct or improve upon a previous rhinoplasty surgery. It can be done to give the nose a better or different appearance, or it can help the nose function better if the previous surgery caused or failed to correct problems with the nasal passages.


Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to remove excess skin or fat from either the upper or lower eyelids. Though sometimes the patient is put all the way under, the procedure can often be performed with just local anesthesia. A fairly routine surgery, blepharoplasty generally takes a couple of hours to be completed. You may also choose to undergo transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which is even less invasive and specifically targets fat on the lower eyelids.

Brow Lift

Wrinkles and “worry lines” on the forehead are among the most noticeable and unsightly signs of aging. They can make you look perpetually angry and exhausted. A brow lift helps to get rid of these lines and make you appear younger and more energized.

Chin Implant

A prominent, chiseled jawline is considered by many to be one of the most powerful and attractive facial features a person can have. And it can be achieved with mentoplasty, also called chin augmentation or a chin implant. Chin implants give a more definite shape to the jawline and can reverse the effects of a jaw that has receded, thus making the face look more balanced.

Cheek Implants

A malar or submalar augmentation can provide definition to the cheeks or cheekbones.


A procedure that shapes or reconstructs the cartilage of the ear, otoplasty is often performed on young children and adolescents to correct certain types of birth defects. Children are usually given general anesthetic, but teenagers and adults can generally undergo the procedure with just local anesthetic and a sedative.


SmartLipo® is a brand new, minimally invasive procedure which can actually melt the fat inside your body using lasers, and tighten the surrounding skin at the same time. Diet and exercise don’t always work on the areas we’d like them to, but SmartLipo® can provide you with a permanent solution for getting rid of excess fat and sculpting a slimmer, healthier body.

Fat Transfer

There are a number of unsightly indentations that can evolve in the face over time, from laugh lines to sunken cheeks to acne scars and more. By removing fat from other areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs or buttocks, plastic surgeons can then inject that fat into the areas of your face that need to be filled. The result is a fuller, more youthful and natural look. The procedure can also use grafted fat to correct signs of aging, such as wrinkles in the forehead or lines and indentations that form between your nose and mouth.

PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma injections use the platelets in your own body’s bloodstream to create collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother and healthier looking skin.

Neck Lift

A neck lift, also called platysmaplasty, is a procedure that tightens the skin and muscles around your neck to reduce sagging, eliminate neck bands, and makes both your neck and jawline smoother and better defined.

Is Facial Surgery Covered By Insurance?

Corrective and reconstructive facial surgeries are often covered, either partly or totally, by health insurance, depending on your policy and provider. However, facial cosmetic surgeries usually are not covered. Talk to your healthcare provider before committing to a surgical procedure and find out what your options are.

In the event that your procedure is not covered or is only partially covered by your health insurance, Dr. Taghizadeh can help you figure out financing and payment options. He will provide you with a consultation to evaluate your facial features and help you determine what options are best for you. At that time, he can also talk to you about which payment options work best for your financial situation.

Farhan Taghizadeh, MD.

We pride ourselves on offering the latest cosmetic technologies and procedures. I am constantly in contact with some of the biggest aesthetic companies in the country to find out what new devices are coming out so that we can help you look your best. I have extensive cosmetic surgery training, and I have performed over 3,500 facelifts. My goal is to meet you where you are - whether you are noticing sun damage or are tired of looking 15 years older than you feel-together we can find a way to bring that spark back to your life!

I completed my ENT training at the University of Rochester in 2004. To further deepen my understanding of the face, I did a facial plastic surgery fellowship in Switzerland (where I also developed a love of chocolate!). These experiences gave me an in-depth understanding of head and neck structures, an understanding that I use and refine every day to help you achieve the outcome you seek.

"Whether you have a serious medical condition or are interested in rejuvenating your look, I look forward to getting to know you and making you feel great!"
