Dr. Brown’s Mission Statement:
Our vision is to create for you a complete and personal plastic surgery experience in which your total health and well-being are at the core of your treatment. We strive to join with you in providing exceptional care by always being compassionate, professional and knowledgeable and we will always do our best to not only achieve the result you desire, but become partners with you in your overall health for life.
The most important factor that you control with respect to having a successful outcome after plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. It is important for you to know about the qualifications and experience of your plastic surgeon.
Dr. Richard Joseph Brown was proud to begin his practice in the specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery after 12 years of training. He is double board certified in both General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. He is originally from Atlanta, Georgia where many of his family members still reside.
Dr. Brown’s goal is to treat every patient with respect and admiration as if they were a member of his family. He always strives to be self-critical of his work so that at the end of the day, he can say he did his best. He is passionate about this commitment.
Dr. Brown was drawn to the field of Plastic Surgery because of the broadness of this specialty. He loves the fact that he can perform reconstructive, as well as cosmetic procedures and that he can operate on infants, as well as adults. Dr. Brown believes that Plastic Surgery is a very challenging specialty that requires innovative thought and is always changing. No two surgeries are ever the same. He loves the diversity and the overall amazing feeling of joy he gets from having the privilege to do what he does every day.
Dr. Brown’s practice is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as Sun City West and he specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, body, breast and extremities. He takes your privacy and safety seriously and wants you to be able to communicate openly and feel comfortable during your visit. Ultimately, Dr. Brown’s success is judged by the satisfaction of his patients, and he is committed to that goal.

The consultation process is an opportunity to meet Dr. Brown, his nurse and staff and to connect with our patients by learning about their goals and health history. By the end of the consultation, we will determine with the patient whether a cosmetic or non-cosmetic procedure is right for them, and whether they feel comfortable and secure enough to make a final decision. Your appointment can last up to an hour, as we want to give you sufficient time to be educated about your surgery, get all of your questions asked and to feel confident about your options and decision. Our goal is for you to feel comfortable and well educated about the surgery you are considering. Follow-up consultations are always welcome.
