Recognized by Phoenix Magazine’s as a Top Doc, Dr. Bass’ experience and expertise allows his clients to benefit from a full range of plastic surgery procedures. He is often asked why he chose plastic surgery and what he specializes in.

The “why” – comes from seeing his patient’s transformation in self-confidence after their surgery.

The “what” – he specializes in the “Wow” factor—taking a patient from a size 12 to a size 8; taking a patient from looking like grandma to looking like her daughter. The cardinal rule of his practice is to treat patients the way he wants to be treated when he is a patient.

Whatever procedure you are considering, you can be sure that Dr. Bass has the expertise and experience to deliver the beautiful, natural-looking results that will enhance your ageless beauty.
