Steve Lex began his plastic surgery practice in Flagstaff in 1989. Having a keen interest in outdoor wilderness activities and a love for western landscapes, he was drawn to Flagstaff. Here he could establish the general plastics practice he sought, in the midst of the beauty of Northern Arizona and the Colorado Plateau country. Seeking a partner to join him in practice, he immediately thought of Dr. Jack Quigley, with whom he had become close friends while the two of them were plastic surgeon residents together in Youngstown, OH. Dr. Quigley joined Dr. Lex in Flagstaff in 1991 and together they formed Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona.

Married for over thirty years, Dr. Lex has four grown children and two grandchildren. In his spare time, he is very active in a number of outdoor pursuits, including white water kayaking, backpacking, mountain biking, and hunting.

Dr. Lex finds great fulfillment in his work and feels that it is a privilege to live and work in such a wonderful community and setting.

Testimonials for Dr. Lex

“Dr. Lex and the entire staff were very professional and comforting. Any questions or concerns were dealt within a quick and friendly manner. The results of my breast reduction exceeded my expectations and I am extremely happy about my new appearance.”

“Excellent care and concern for my health. Dr. Lex is highly skilled and his guidance helped me understand the total procedure. I am extremely pleased with my results.”

“Awesome staff- my 9 year old daughter had surgery on her thumb. The entire staff was reassuring to her- she was very frightened to go under general anesthesia. The surgeon (Dr. Lex), medical staff, office staff, anesthesiologist, recovery and pre-op nurses were excellent. The facility was clean and well-organized. The appointment scheduler (Cindy) went out of her way to schedule my daughter’s surgery right away.”

“Overall, the staff were amazing! Dr. Lex made us feel comfortable with the decision we were making for our daughter. The anesthesiologist was PHENOMENAL and helped her feel comfortable and had her laughing before she went into surgery. And the results look amazing 🙂 Our daughter is young, so the procedure was done to help rid a reason for kids to bully her. We also hope that the realignment of her ears will help with some of the wax build up she was having because of the way her ears were aligned. Fingers crossed!”


“The whole experience was great. Dr. Lex was very confident and answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. From what I have read online recovery time is usually longer but I felt I was able to get back to normal very fast. The results are very natural the cost was incredibly fair and Im very happy. Thank you.”

“Dr. Lex and the surgical staff were very pleasant and helpful. I was extremely nervous to have surgery and everyone in the center explained everything for my husband and I to understand and be comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Lex to everyone! Thank you so much for everything!”
