Dr. Rankin's Frequently Asked Questions



My focus is always on quality of life. I have always had an appreciation for the human body. I enjoy sculpting and drawing. As a young man, I worked as a personal trainer while I was in college. Plastic surgery was the natural progression as few other surgical specialists are able to work on so many parts of the body. Plastic surgery allows me to build enduring relationships with my patients. My work as a plastic surgeon is very visible and I get to work closely with my patients in order to achieve their desired results. I get to share in their success. The ultimate expression of this is facial rejuvenation and Rhinoplasty. Our faces are always exposed and the way we interact with the world.  Most of us do not feel the age that our face reflects. I find it incredibly rewarding to help people achieve their goals.


Plastic surgery emphasizes form and function and I believe aesthetic surgery is the pinnacle of that goal. From the office to the surgery itself, I strive to create a pleasant, painless experience that allows my patients to achieve their goals. I want my patients to feel full confidence that they can trust my staff and I to care for them. My patients can expect full discretion whether they are from Arizona or traveling from out of town. My patients should expect consistent, safe, and natural outcomes.
Due to age, weight loss or otherwise, we all have physical attributes that don’t fit with our self-perception. My goal is to close that gap. Thankfully for advances in medicine, we are all living longer lives. We are all more active and driven than ever. More and more people look in the mirror and wonder who that “old” person is. Due to better techniques and a better understanding of the aging process, my patients’ energy and youthfulness will be seen in their reflection.


When I began planning the ideal practice, I had a vision. It’s patient centric, efficient, and has an amazing, talented, and service oriented staff. I am very excited to now offer the culmination of my travels, studies and experience to Scottsdale, and Chandler, AZ.
