Would highly recommend Dr. Shapiro for facelift!!! I am happy to answer any questions and will send photos privately. Check out his before and after photos.

His photos look so good. I would love to talk to someone personally who used him. Are you still happy with your results?

Yes, at 9 months post op, I am totally happy with the results of a comprehensive facelift!! One of my chief concerns were the downturning corners and lines around my mouth. This was addressed, but I still have some lines that have been treated with Radiesse and I probably still need some type of filler to minimize the oral commissures. If the mouth area is pulled too much, an unnatural appearance can result.

I had to look up what oral commissures were (a wrinkle around the mouth). Correct? So was yours pulled to tight? I wonder if it loosens after a bit?

No, actually not pulled enough.

WOW..this needs to be posted...patients have the right to know all this.. habitual substance abuse, sexual conduct with a patient, soliciting sexual relationships might not reflect directly on his abilities as a surgeon but why take a chance???

Did some detective work and found this under the New York Physician Disciplinary Actions:The physician has agreed to never activate his registration or reapply for a license to practice medicine in New York State. Misconduct Description: The physician did not contest the charge of having been disciplined by the Arizona Medical Board for disclosing privileged communication; habitual substance abuse; engaging in sexual conduct with a patient; engaging in or soliciting sexual relationships. You can read the full report if you do a search. The positive thing is it does not reflect his direct abilities as a surgeon.

Was it the AZ Board or NY Board or both.? Dr Holden lost his license in AZ for just the substance abuse part. He didn't even bother saying it wasn't true...guess he just moved here instead!

Just so it is clear, we are referring to Shapiro and not Holden

It is Shapiro that lost his license in New York, not Holden

If he is impaired while he is operating on someone's face, I have a problem with that !

Anybody have info on Dr Shapiro losing his license to practice medicine in New York? Pretty scary stuff...

Dr. Shapiro is good but I tend to agree with the comment below as far as him being an attention hound. He lost his medical license in New York.

Lost his license??? Any details/info??? How did he get his license here then? Pretty scary..maybe that's why he is ALWAYS advertising himself??!!!

Any feedback on Dr. Shapiro in Paradise Valley?

Probably a good surgeon, but WAY too much advertising, self-promotion for me. ALWAYS finding whatever media outlet possible. Just NOT my style!

UPDATE!! Had facelift, upper/lower eyelids, neck and forehead lift, and fat transfer done by Dr Maffi of Maffi Plastic Surgery, Paradise Valley/Scottsdale. 1 week post-op..everything has been wonderful!! Incredible office staff, lots of understanding and support and Dr Maffi is a true "artist!!" Mayo Clinic raves about him..he teaches their residents. Uncomfortable, but no real pain. Up and about after day 2...home on my own by day 4. Doing great..will update!!
