Robert J. Spies MD
About the Practice
My goal is to provide each individual a natural and proportional appearance with complete safety in mind. My staff and I provide a warm and comforting environment for our patients so that their overall experience is positive. I take pride in the fact that I listen to everyone’s individual concerns and recommend a treatment plan based on their desires and needs. With over 27 years of experience, I am able to give my patients consistent and excellent results. I perform cosmetic surgery at the state-accredited Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center using the latest scientific techniques. I also provide my patients overnight recovery at our state-accredited Surgical Recovery Center. Both of these facilities are on the same campus as my office.

Dr. Spies is the medical director of the Southwest Skin Care Clinic located in his office in Paradise Valley. This clinic was developed to treat the signs of facial aging from prolonged sun exposure and lifestyle choices (diet and tobacco use). These factors can produce loss of facial volume, loss of skin elasticity and development of wrinkles, lines and creases. With the help of Dr. Spies and his skin care specialists, these signs of aging can be reversed.
Dr. Spies offers many types of treatments including the following:
Injectable Dermal Fillers:
Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm as well as the volumizer Sculptra.
