Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
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, dedication to detail and patient-physician communication.
This focus on proven surgical techniques combined with patient education and compassionate care ensure that patients are well informed prior to surgery and extremely pleased following it.
Originally from a small town outside of Austin, Texas, Dr. Becker completed his undergraduate degree with honors at the University of Texas. 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 surgical training, Dr. Becker attended Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. While there, Dr. Becker published several papers in peer-reviewed journals and received awards for his work in breast cancer tumor markers.
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 one of the top plastic surgery programs in the United States at 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 Knox County and its contiguous communities. Dr. Becker remains committed to breast cancer patients, a patient population he connected with during his residency. He is an invited speaker at several cancer support groups in Knoxville and travels throughout the area to provide immediate reconstruction for patients who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity.
When Dr. Becker isn’t with his patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife Chandra and their two children, wake boarding and running.

Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery
“Meticulous” is a word often associated with Dr. Becker in the operating room. He is a gifted plastic surgeon with expertise in multiple facets of cosmetic, reconstructive and minimally invasive plastic surgery procedures.
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.
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 the goals can and will be met and taking time in the operating room to make sure everything is the absolute best it can be.
