If you’ve been thinking about plastic surgery but have yet to take the leap—or if you have and are looking for a quality local physician—you’re in luck as Tamplen Plastic Surgery just opened the doors at its new Scottsdale location.

Home to Dr. Matthew Tamplen, M.D., a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Tamplen Plastic Surgery is ready to serve Valley residents who are looking into plastic surgery and want a physician with impressive experience and expertise.

“I am an experienced facial plastic surgeon with an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) background. This helps me to not only make sure that procedures like a rhinoplasty not only turn out aesthetically pleasing but are functional as well,” Dr. Tamplen says. “We are excited to be opening up our new Scottsdale area location and I look forward to helping new patients with their facial cosmetic needs.”

Dr. Tamplen specializes in facial cosmetic surgery and notes that the rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is one of his most popular procedures. “I’ve had patients who come to me to fix a past rhinoplasty that was done for form but not function,” he says. “I always make sure that patients’ procedures are structurally set up for success.”

In addition to his in-demand rhinoplasty procedure, Tamplen Plastic Surgery also offers:
• Face and neck lifts
• Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
• Brow lifts
• Non-invasive mini facelifts
• Botox and fillers

When it comes to credentials, Dr. Tamplen’s resume is impressive. After his residency, he completed a prestigious Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery with the former president of The Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Edward H. Farrior.
He was also awarded the Jack R. Anderson Award for Scholastic Excellence in 2018. Dr. Tamplen explains that this prize is awarded annually to the U.S. or Canadian surgeon who achieves the highest combined score on the written and oral portions of the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery examination.

In addition to the new Valley location, Tamplen Plastic Surgery has other practices in California. Dr. Tamplen shares that his plan is to split his time between his locations, but that the Scottsdale area will be his home base.

“We moved to Scottsdale and opened a practice here to be a part of this wonderful community and to start a family,” he says. “I can’t wait to plant roots here and grow my Scottsdale practice.”

Tamplen Plastic Surgery is located at 4530 E. Shea Boulevard, Suite 180. To learn more, visit or call 602-358-8860.
