Looking for a Plastic Surgeon in the Phoenix Area?

Dr. Shapiro is recognized as a leader in Aesthetic Surgery, and with over 29 years of experience, and having meticulously performed thousands of plastic surgical procedures with nationally recognized results, he was recruited to become an Instructor in Plastic Surgery for the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science. He has been selected to be the Director of Aesthetic Surgical Training for the prestigious Mayo Clinic Rochester Plastic Surgery Residency Training Program. Through his work in this position, he educates and empowers upcoming Scottsdale plastic surgery residents from all over the world to develop artistic surgical skills while simultaneously understanding the complexities of cosmetic surgical patients and their care. Dr. Shapiro is extremely committed in sharing the gifts he has been given, and was awarded “Teacher of the Year” for the Mayo Clinic Rochester Plastic Surgery Residency Program in 2018.

Dr. Shapiro has studied extensively in his quest to perfect the art of body sculpting and in 2009 he was introduced to Hi-Definition Liposculpture and was immediately hooked. Astounded by the before and after results, Dr. Shapiro researched the technique and began correspondence with Dr. Hoyos, a plastic surgeon based out of Bogota, Colombia and the creator of Hi-Definition liposuction. He was cordially invited to travel to Colombia and train with Dr. Hoyos himself. At that time, Dr. Shapiro became one of seventy-five surgeons worldwide and one of seventeen surgeons in the United States to have adopted this gold standard technique. Dr. Shapiro brought the Hi-Definition liposuction technique back to Arizona in 2010 and was the first—and only—surgeon statewide to be offering this treatment. Dr. Shapiro is proud to offer this technically demanding and advanced technique to patients in Arizona and those that travel from across the world for his expertise.
