5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Wow - What a Difference. Scottsdale, AZ

Dr Shaw's Clinic is busy. I scheduled my initial consult for breast revision and waited 5 months for the appointment. (Longer for revision than for augmentation) Very glad I waited because I'm thrilled with the results ( 9 months post-op). The office staff are all so friendly and helpful - what a great team. I'm so glad I found them as I researched the "Top Doc's" in the field.

Facelift and Fat Transfer - Scottsdale, AZ

My experience at the Shaw Center was nothing short of amazing. Dr. Shaw and his wonderful staff are so friendly and professional. I had a facelift with fat transfer and my results are incredible, I look like myself 20 Years younger, very minimal bruising and the incisions are invisible. I can't say enough about Dr. Shaw but words that come to mind are a meticulous perfectionist and a true...

51 and Done with These Massive Mammaries! Scottsdale, AZ

Dr. Shaw performed my original BA, my step-mothers BA, my daughter's BA, as well as a few of my friends. He is confident in his work - a perfectionist and an artist. I have no qualms about having perform my explant and reduction/lift surgery even though I've read many articles saying that you shouldn't go back to your original surgeon to have your implants removed. Dr. Shaw has earned my trust and I know he will do the best he can do with what I have to work with.

38 Yo - Second Breast Aug. with Dr. Shaw

I would not go anywhere else. Dr. Shaw is a complete professional and more importantly brilliant at what he does.

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Mid Facelift and Fat Transfer - Scottsdale, AZ

Wonderful physician who cares about clients and results; however, I do not believe fat transfers are particularly effective for some people and are temporary. I believed I would have much better, longer lasting results for $14-15k for midline face lift.

Surgery a Success!

Dr. Shaw was exceptional. I've rarely give the highest marks on any review of anything. But he truly deserves it. The whole process from start to finish was professional, and informative. I felt respected, safe and cared for at every moment. Dr. Shaw and his staff are the best out there.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - Scottsdale, AZ

Dr. Shaw did an amazing job, I felt completely comfortable after my consultation. I explained what I didn't like and he explained how he would fix it. Completely worth it, I wouldn't go anywhere else for any other procedures. I plan to visit him again this year. The staff is extremely nice and make you feel comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Brow Lift - Scottsdale, AZ

Dr. Lawrence Shaw expresses the right way and amount of care, follow-up, preparation and after care. Each one counts and is important as one needs guidance through the process. It changes one inside and out and they craft the outer in an excellent and thorough fashion.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

I Gained my Confidence Back! - Scottsdale, AZ

Dr. Lawrence W. Shaw is "The Best" Cosmetic Surgeon in my opinion, & came very highly recommended. I had absolutely no pain after surgery, & never needed any of my pain meds! I healed very quickly too. He is so funny & very friendly & genuinely cares about the people he performs his magic on. He restored my confidence, & gave me my life back. I can now live life passionately & with my head held high! I highly recommend Dr. Shaw, or as I now consider him, The Great Wizard of AZ!!
