Special Skills & Training

Dr. Williams earned the distinction of being Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a long standing member of the prestigious American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Arizona Society of Plastic Surgeons. Upon completion of his training, he began his surgical career with a focus on treating patients with a wide range of plastic surgical needs including those requiring reconstruction following cancer, burns, and traumatic injuries. The complex, intricate nature of these procedures honed the surgical skills of this self-described “detail-oriented perfectionist.” However, he soon realized that his true passion involved the intricate, yet artistic, nature of cosmetic surgery.  

Over the last 20 years he has focused his entire practice on cosmetic surgery of the breast, body and face. He is well known for producing beautiful, natural looking results that are sought after by patients not only in Arizona but throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Medical Privileges


"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"



"When you place yourself if the care of others, it’s nice to feel confident and safe. This is what I found in Dr. William’s office. He gives his professional opinion and lets you make an informed decision. Dr Williams also gives you options, helping you to feel your best. Stephanie, is the aesthetician who has been wonderful, she helps you to look better at any age. She explains the procedures and lets you decide what will work best for you. When she does a treatment she takes her time, explaining along the way what she is doing and why.Dr. Williams and his staff are truly “Scottsdale’s best”!"



"From the moment I walked into the office, I felt welcomed by Dr. John Williams and his staff. For my breast augmentation, Dr Williams considered my own thoughts and opinions, as well as giving his own and we were able to come to an agreement on what size would be best. If you are feeling nervous, COME TO DR WILLIAMS! There is no intimidation. He truly cares about you, your general health and your body!"



"I have to start this off by saying Dr. Williams gained my 100% trust by being honestly and upfront with me during the whole process. Before I met him I had a couple other consultations that left me feeling discouraged. Dr. Williams was very informative during the consultation he answered almost all my questions and concerns before I even had to ask. He explained in detail what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. My results are exactly what I was hoping for and my recovery was better than I was expecting. I believe Dr. Williams is the best!"



"I've always trusted this office and he is so easy to talk to and answer any concerns. I highly recommend him!"
