Professional, skilled reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon.
When meeting Dr. Becker, his enthusiasm for Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery is evident immediately. He puts patients at ease with the easygoing, caring demeanor of a small town “doc” while instilling confidence with his extensive knowledge and attention to detail.
For Dr. Becker, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery is not his job, it’s his calling. He is passionate about his patients’ care, their overall experience and their results. What he does is both an art and a science, allowing him to achieve excellent, natural-appearing results through advanced surgical methods, meticulous attention to detail and patient-physician communication. Dr. Becker believes the most valuable asset he has to offer is time: time to educate and talk with the patient in order to make sure their goals can and will be met and taking time in the operating room to make sure everything is the absolute best it can be. When considering cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery, it is important to choose a surgeon with a keen aesthetic sense, strong surgical skills, a commitment to patient education, and a heart for providing compassionate care.
This focus on proven surgical techniques combined with patient education and compassionate care ensures that patients are well informed prior to surgery and extremely pleased following it.
Originally from a small town outside of Austin, Texas, Dr. Becker graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin. He then attended medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, which is consistently ranked as one of the top medical schools in the country. For his general surgery training, Dr. Becker attended Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. While there, he published several papers in peer-reviewed journals and received awards for his research in breast cancer.
It was during his third year of training, while assisting on breast reconstruction cases, that his interest in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery was piqued. After completing his training in Virginia, he returned to Texas for a position at the top plastic surgery program in the United States; the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) in Dallas. Many leaders and innovators in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery serve as educators at UTSW and are committed to producing excellent surgeons as well as future leaders in the field.
In 2009 Dr. Becker moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, to begin seeing patients in Blount County, Knox County and the surrounding communities. When Dr. Becker isn’t with his patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife Chandra and their two children, wake boarding and running.
Dr. Becker’s Practice
Dr. Becker’s practice is founded on the following principles:
- Creating an environment of comfort and attentiveness throughout the treatment course
- Achieving long lasting, natural results for his patients to avoid the overworked or “operated on” look
- Keeping abreast of cutting edge techniques while not haphazardly abandoning time-proven techniques
- Prioritizing a patient’s well being above all else to ensure safe and successful outcomes
- While Dr. Becker’s main hospital is Blount Memorial, he has privileges at all the hospitals in Knoxville, Morristown Hamblin and LeConte Medical Center.
Dr. Becker remains committed to breast cancer patients, a patient population he connected with during his residency. He is honored to be a Susan G. Komen Knoxville Pink Tie Guy, leads a team and participates in Race for the Cure and Shoot for the Cure. He is an invited speaker at several cancer support groups, as well as an educator and leader in the use of anatomic shaped “gummy bear” implants for breast reconstruction. Most important, he travels to underserved communities to provide immediate reconstruction for patients who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity. He is a firm believer that zip code should not dictate quality of care.
