R.N., BSN, SURGICAL NURSE / MEDICAL AESTHETIC SPECIALIST, NURSE INJECTOR
After working as a registered nurse in many different surgical specialties and ultimately finding my passion in cosmetic surgery, I began working with Dr. Shapiro at our very own Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center in 2016. It was so rewarding working alongside Dr. Shapiro in the operating room which allowed me to see first-hand his meticulous technical precision and surgical expertise. When Dr. Shapiro asked me to join him as his private surgical nurse, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work for such a talented and caring surgeon.
I love that my knowledge of the operating room allows patients to feel comfortable and educated while making the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery and as much as I enjoyed my time in the operating room, it has been so rewarding working as his private surgical nurse. I’ve been specially trained in all aspects of the operating room and patient care; such as, infection control, post-op wound care, suture removal, drain removal, surgical implants and surgical garments. I enjoy creating lasting relationships with our patients, following their care throughout the surgical process and seeing Dr. Shapiro’s visions come to life. Sharing the excitement of the final result with our patients and Dr. Shapiro is the best part of my day!
I am excited to be offering serval non-invasive treatments to our patients like Votiva for cutting-edge feminine health, Morpheus8 for radio-frequency assisted skin tightening, Coolsculpting for a non-surgical fat reduction and Ultherapy for skin lifting and tightening using ultrasound energy. In 2019 I added Nurse Injector to my professional title after completing dozens of hours of hands on training and certification courses in neuro-modulators (Botox and Dysport) and soft-tissue fillers (Juvederm and Restylane). I enjoy helping our patients feel comfortable, safe, and excited; before, during and after their experience with our office.
Before and After
"I recently had lip fillers and Botox done by Sage and I am so happy with my results! She walked me through the entire process and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I was most impressed with how painless the lip filler was. She took the extra time to numb my lips longer and ice them in between. She is very caring and wants the best results for you. She is a talented artist and I will absolutely return to her for any future aesthetic needs. She's the best!” - Talisha S.
"I can't recommend Sage enough! I walked into the office and had a great experience from the beginning - even just doing paperwork. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Once I got back to the office with Sage, she explained everything clearly for me. She took the time to ask what I was expecting and hoping for from my appointment and walked me through all the steps. Throughout the appointment she told me exactly what she was doing and why and how it correlated to what I wanted...” - Becky S.
"I went to Shapiro Plastic Surgery for multiple noninvasive procedures. I have had: botox in my forehead and in my bottom jaw (to help with contouring my cheeks), fillers in my cheeks, and 1 round of cool sculpting all with Sage Hallman (besides 1 round of Botox with Anne). Sage is such a sweetheart, she takes great care of her clients and I truly feel she listens to what her clients want and tries her best to achieve those results...” - Lexi B.
"This review is for Sage Hallman, who is the nicest, most comforting injector ever! I love her consultative and conservative approach and how patient she was with me. She was so in tune with what I wanted and was sensitive to my pain levels and comfort. She walked me through every step of her process and checked in before, during and after. I was so impressed with her work and can't wait to go back to her for more! If you are considering filler or injections, you will be glad you chose Sage as your provider.” - Amy B.
