Upon arrival to Phoenix metropolitan area we will welcome you to our office for your in-person consultation with Dr. Shapiro to review our surgical plan in person and answer any last minute questions that you may have. This appointment is typically done 1-2 days prior to surgery with your pre-operative appointment to follow.


Dr. Shapiro operates out of the Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center which is a State-Certified Ambulatory Surgery Center used exclusively for elective cosmetic surgery performed by plastic surgeons certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. This center is located in our plaza just steps outside of our office.


The post-op course for our out-of-town patients will depend on the type of surgery you undergo. We have an on-site surgical recovery center available to you as well as many options for concierge nurse staffing to assist with “at home care” for the duration of your stay. In general, we encourage patients to stay in town until all sutures have been removed, typically 7-10 days after surgery. In some cases dissolvable sutures may be used. Once home, we will continue to follow your recovery and healing process via telephone and email.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
