Meet Our Staff
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.
Director of Operations Felicia has over 10 years experience managing aesthetic practices. She loves the diversity and range of opportunities that come with managing a practice, and especially loves interacting with patients at Arizona Facial Plastics. She truly believes that patients deserve a physician who cares for their overall wellbeing and delivers results that fit the patient’s desires. She is continually amazed at the transformations patients achieve under Dr. T’s care. Felicia and Dr. T have been married for 17 years, and have three lively and beautiful children.
Shea Terry brings his extensive experience in aesthetics to Arizona Facial Plastics as the Director of Sales. He has worked with and known Dr. Taghizadeh for over 15 years and is highly familiar with Dr. Taghizadeh’s approach to facial aesthetics. Shea is a strong believer in educating patients about the aging process so that each person understands what solution will be best.
A skilled consultant, Shea’s goal is that every patient feel comfortable and trust that there is a solution for their aging-related issue. He strives to work with each patient to find the treatment that fits both their aesthetic goals and their budget. “My favorite thing is to sit down with a client, find a solution, and then see them 30 days later looking and feeling like they want to. I always explain that just like it took time to age, it takes time to reverse it. Our solutions are about progress, not perfection.”
In his spare time Shea loves spending time with his daughter and grandbabies, walking his 3 dogs, and hiking the Arizona hills.
