Highly Skilled Surgeon - From start to finish Dr. Holden was amazing. He is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He performed a lower face lift with my neck lift and I truly love my results. The only thing I can say negative is... I didn't realize how long the recovery process could be, and believe me when I say, it's a "rough" recovery-IMO. Your in good hands with Dr. Holden! More

Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery - I've always had excess skin fold over my eyes (it's genetic), but when the lower eyelids began to deflate and wrinkle, I knew it was time to have these procedures done. A lot of the deflation in my face is due to having lost 100 pounds almost 20 years ago. At one point, I had fat injected into the lower eyelids but that only lasted a few years before they lost their fullness. Anyhow, this is my journey! More

Facelift and Eye Lift - I interviewed 3 top docs, after much research. My greatest concern was that I look natural. I also had some asymmetry that i was hoping could be improved. I am now 9 mos. post op and I couldn't be happier. Everyone says how young I look but nobody has guessed that I had plastic surgery, not even my daughters. I wanted natural eyes, not the deer-in-the-headlight look. My eyes look... More

Facelift at 62 So Worth It! - I'm 62 and I've had a weak jawline all of my life. I've wanted a lower facelift for decades. I hated my profile. I worked really hard to take pictures to hide that, but it's all I ever saw. I never wore turtlenecks, or draping fabric around my neck, or choker necklaces because I thought it emphasized the least favorite part of my face. I've done fillers and botox for at least 10 years, and... More

Forehead Advancment....yay - I'm only one week post op from a forehead advancement. I mean I have dealt with a very high forehead all my life. Hated it, and tired of hiding it with bangs. Yes I'm a very young 67 yr old who dates younger men so I want to look good. However, the benefit of the surgery was a one inch lowering of my hairline AND a brow lift. Besides alittle bruising under the eyes and normal numbness on my... More

Best Plastic Surgeon! - From the moment you walk into the spa-like waiting room at Scottsdale Plastic Surgeons, you feel like you are the most important person in their day. I live in Dallas but flew to Phoenix after a fried of mine told me about Dr Holden. I had an upper and lower Blepharoplasty and lower face-lift. I'm 56 and I wanted to do a little tweaking before my son's wedding in April but not look totally... More

Exceptional doctor, caring staff, amazing results - Dr. Holden is an amazing professional with a combination of education, surgical skill, and artistic eye that can bring your vision to life. He is a warm and genuine person that surrounds himself with gentle and caring staff. I was told by other surgeons my expectation for a lower face and neck lift was not realistic for a woman in her mid-60s who had recently lost 50 pounds. Dr. Holden... More

Minor Fix Here and There. Scottsdale, AZ - ?I have never really liked the bridge height or the thickness of my nose tip. Not only was I unhappy, I had no idea what I needed to make it look more appealing. Did I need to take down the bridge? Narrow the tip or bring in my nostrils? Due to the luck I'm usually dealt with if something was going to go wrong it would happen to me. Like the average person, I was nervous. Finally, I got the guts to do something about it. I then made an appointment with Dr. Paul Holden in February 2016. I got all of my questions & concerns answered. Dr. Holden also pointed out a few things I never would have recognized. My pictures were taken and imaged to my liking. I fell in love with what my " new " nose would look like. My chin was also addressed and made more pronounced in the imaging process. I then scheduled my surgery for March 11, 2016. The " Big Day" came and I was more than ready. IV was placed, by the best nurse Lindsey; who made absolutely painless. I walked back to the operating room, took about a 3.5 hour nap and woke up feeling great. Most people don't remember waking up after a surgical procedure but I can say I remember most of it. I did decide to go with the chin implant as well as the rhinoplasty (open). After the anesthesia wore off I did not have as much pain as I anticipated, the only pain I experienced was my chin; whichj was a burning/stinging sensation and lasted about 3-4 days. My pain medication was taken for a day or 2 otherwise Tylenol extra strength was taken as needed. I had surgery on a Friday afternoon and was back to work by Tuesday. My splint and sutures were removed at 1 week and had a little round circle maybe 2cm of bruising on my left lower eyelid and a speck of bruising on my right upper eyelid and of course the usual swelling. Arnica (aids in bruising) and Bromelain (pineapple extract; to help reduce swelling) were my best friends ;) I get asked why I had surgery and I simply did it for myself. There is no better feeling than self confidence and mine definitely has improved. Nor do I have to take 100+ selfies or contour my nose for the perfect lighting. Overall, having surgery was 110% worth it & I would do it all over again. More

A new beautiful profile!! - I have received Kybella And a rhinoplasty from Dr. Holden, and I am absolutely delighted. My profile looks so nice, without the double chin and a new nose. I trust him completely. He was absolutely patient and kind throughout, as were his nurses. They are so friendly! I plan on returning to him again for a facelift in the future. Many other surgeons work on the face and body, but he has a... More

I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Dr. Holden, in fact I already have. - Dr. Holden is outstanding, his sincere and easy going client driven bedside manner made it easy to focus on what the best form of treatment for me was going to be. Best of all, the results of my full facelift, eye lift and skin laser treatment exceeded my expectations as I look very naturally ten years younger, that's all you can hope for. Thank you Dr. Holden!

Chin Implant, Lower Facelift, Fat Grafting- 42 Year Old Female- Best Decision - Scottsdale, AZ - Dr Holden was amazing- start to finish. He was very honest with me, and we discussed the best plan for my multiple issues. This was not a quick conversation and I was so impressed with the way he explained everything to me. He spent considerable time going over what the surgery itself would entail, what to expect after surgery, and my questions about recovery. He understands that this is both exciting and a bit terrifying as well- because it is my face after all. I wanted to look like myself, but with a better profile and jawline. He explained that a lower facelift, custom chin implant, as well as a touch of fat grafting under the eyes, at the temples, and at the lips would give me the results I desired.Interestingly enough, I was planning on having a different surgery for this problem, where my jaw would be broken and moved forward (orthagnathic surgery) and we spent considerable time weighing the pros and cons of both. Since my braces had largely corrected my teeth crowding and overbite, there would only be a few millimeters added with orthagnathic surgery. This would not be enough to change my profile in a noticeable way, and I would still need soft tissue reconstruction to get my desired effect. Not to mention, I would NOT need my jaw wired shut for 6 weeks with a facelift, and the pain would be remarkably less as well.Dr Holden made me feel very confident in my decision, and his advice was so valuable to me. His expertise was obvious as well. Not once did he pressure me or rush my decision, and we decided to proceed.After surgery, he was just as interested in my recovery and had frequent follow up visits. I felt he genuinely cared about my well being and outcome. I really could not be happier! I feel so grateful to Dr Holden for all the time he spent walking me through this complicated decision, and the results speak for themselves. When my friends see me now a week out, even though I'm still a little bruised and swollen, the typical reaction is tears of joy. I have several friends who are plastic surgeons, and they were impressed with my results right away as well. I am so grateful that Dr Holden was my surgeon- I have never felt so beautiful. More

I have several friends who are plastic surgeons, and they were impressed with my results right away as well. I am so grateful that Dr Holden was my surgeon- I have never felt so beautiful. - - I was born with an underdeveloped jaw, a small chin, a large fat pad under my jaw, an overbite, and crowded teeth, and as I aged, the problem was compounded and simply looked worse every year. I am very thin, but always have a "double chin" and there was no definition from my chin to my neck. From the front, I felt pretty, but my profile was extremely unflattering. I was told as young as 15 years old that I needed surgery to correct these issues, but I couldn't afford it. I have struggled to maintain a positive self image ever since. This year, I finally decided to get braces to correct my overbite and smile, and decided to go ahead with facial reconstructive surgery as well. Now, even in this early postoperative phase, I couldn't be happier! The surgery is a game changer for me, and I finally feel beautiful from every angle, thanks to Dr Holden. More

Ponytail Upper Facelift and Revision Rhinoplasty for 45 Year Old. Scottsdale AZ - I continue to have Dr. Holden as my plastic surgeon because he is the best around. He has excellent surgical skills, he's not pushy, he understands what I want and tells me in a straightforward way how he can, and in some cases cannot, get me there. His concern is always for my safety and comfort first and foremost. And- he is a truely talented surgeon. I wouldn't let any other surgeons touch my face. More

Excellent Revision: Nose Surgery - Phoenix, AZ - Amazing results. My wife went to him for first time nose surgery. I went to him shortly after for a revision (another surgeon did initial). He is meticulous and very specific. I absolutely love my revision and my wife loves her new nose. Dr. Holden is easy to talk to, always takes plenty of time during consults, and he gets the results that you want. I would highly recommend him for nose surgery or any other facial surgery. More

Physician Review- Facial Fat Transfer - Phoenix, AZ - I was very nervous to undergo what I considered to be a fairly invasive procedure, but I could not have chosen a better physician. Dr. Holden took the time to talk through options on several occasions, provided expert advice and proved himself to be the ultimate professional. This was exactly what I was going for! After my experience with Dr. Holden, I would not even consider going to anyone else. More

Wouldn't Trust my Face to Anyone Else - Scottsdale, AZ - Dr. Holden was my top choice after meeting with several other “well known” plastic surgeons. His professionalism and knowledge of face surgeries gained my confidence. I never felt pressured to add on surgeries I didn’t want. He did correct my perceptions about what surgeries would provide which enhancements. Dr. Holden is a real artist! More

Beautiful Work - Scottsdale, AZ - I could not recommend Dr. Holden more highly. I am a professor and so did considerable research before choosing my mid-facelift and blepharoplasty surgeon. When you will be lying unconscious on an operating table with your face under the knife and in the hands of a surgeon, you don’t want to base your decision on price. I must admit that I was not prepared for the cost. But fortunately by then, I was so convinced of Dr. Holden’s superior skill that I had my mind made up and jumped through a lot of hoops to make it work financially. I am so grateful I did! Dr. Holden does beautiful work! I would do it again in a heartbeat – but only with Dr. Holden as my surgeon! More

Ears Pinned, Even and Natural - Confident and Exceptional Surgeon - Scottsdale, AZ - I was treated with respect and care and given excellent surgery for an embarrassing problem I'd had for my life. Dr. H showed significant insight on my otoplasty surgery and gave me a lot of his time. I had high expectations and now can confidently say he has exceeded them all. Not only was the procedure performed in-office but it was relatively pain -free. This is based on years of asking others, "how'd it go?" I am impressed that my ears look so natural, not pinched at the top or one ear flipped out more than the other. He was even able to do some tricks to make the ear smaller. Now I have ears that are unremarkable to others but I can't stop admiring them! As I tell all my friends, why risk something like fixing something you hate about your ears (or face). Dr. H is the best! More

Facelift, Upper/lower Blepharoplasty, Necklift - Scottsdale, AZ - Tired, baggy, looked old.Even as a 50+ year-old attorney, I was hesitant and honestly scared at the prospect of having plastic surgery. In fact, I canceled my scheduled surgery with a different surgeon out of fear. After my consultation with Dr. H, I felt really comfortable and confident for the first time.It’s now been 6 months since my surgery and I could not be happier with the face lift and eyelid surgery.  I've had so many compliments since the surgery about how healthy and rested I look. No one suspects I had surgery because the change, while dramatic, suits me. It looks so natural! More
