Our Practice

Hess and Sandeen Practice

Our practice is dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality medical care and service. We have created this web site to provide you with many of the tools you might need to make informed decisions about cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery. We want to be the plastic surgeons you refer all your friends to!

When thinking about cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery, it is important that you know which questions to ask and what the correct answers should be. Not all physicians who perform plastic surgery or who use the term "plastic surgeon" are board certified in plastic surgery.

Choose a surgeon you can trust!!

Plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust. Choosing an American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Member Surgeon ensures that you have selected a physician who:

  • Has completed at least five years of surgical training with a minimum of two years in plastic surgery.
  • Is trained and experienced in all plastic surgery procedures, including breast, body, face, and reconstruction.
  • Operates only in accredited medical facilities.
  • Adheres to a strict code of ethics.
  • Fulfills continuing medical education requirements, including standards and innovations in patient safety.
  • Is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery or in Canada by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada®.

Drs. Hess and Sandeen have operating room privileges at Northwest Medical Center, Oro Valley Hospital and Northwest Tucson Surgery Center. These are all accredited surgical facilities. For procedures performed utilizing general anesthesia (asleep) or IV sedation, they utilize board-certified anesthesiologists for your safety and comfort.

When you are ready to discuss your individual circumstances, please contact our office at (520) 297-3300. We will be happy to answer your questions and/or schedule a consultation for you.
