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.
Dr. Williams earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology in 1984 from Austin College in Sherman, TX.

He then completed a residency in General Surgery at St. Joseph Hospital in Houston, TX followed by a fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery under the leadership of world renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Ian Jackson.

"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”!"
"Dr. Williams came to my rescue after multiple surgeries with another plastic surgeon that were unsuccessful. To say that Dr. Williams is a blessing is an understatement. From the first consultation, surgery day, and to every visit thereafter; I am so thankful that he spent a great deal of time explaining things, reassuring me, guiding me, and putting my worries to rest. I appreciate that his office is always available for questions and concerns, but also that he is available for weekend appointments after surgery. Dr. Williams exceeded my expecations; and I highly recommend he and his staff to anyone beginning their search for a great plastic surgeon, and even to those seeking a revision. Trust me, you’ll be in great hands."

"I had been wanting my procedure for years but I was always skeptical about getting a "salesman" vibe when going for a consultation. I was in search of honesty and comfort during the process! I was beyond nervous about the after side of surgery and how recovery would go. Dr. Williams and his staff made me feel so comfortable and provided all of the honest, raw info I wanted. The procedure went amazing and recovery wasn't bad, I was up and about the next day! If you are second guessing if you should get the surgery you've been wanting, GET THE SURGERY! Don’t look any further!!! Seriously the best surgeon & team I could have ever asked for. The results, the healing process, and the communication was indescribable. Just the absolute best experience I could have ever asked for! ❤"
