About Dr. Joel Beck

Board certified in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joel Beck brings the highest standards of integrity and medical excellence to helping clients enhance the natural beauty of their body, breasts, face and skin. His surgical expertise, aesthetic sensibility and sound judgment have earned him an international reputation for providing patients with fresh, natural looking results.

Dr. Beck's extensive training includes research and clinical experience in burn surgery, a fellowship in craniofacial surgery and advanced plastic surgery and reconstructive training. Although Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery is almost exclusively dedicated to aesthetic procedures, Dr. Beck’s background in micro surgery and reconstructive surgery bring valuable insight to understanding anatomy, spatial relationships and healing - all critical in achieving outstanding results.

The success of Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery over the past 10 years is the result of an ongoing focus on understanding patient needs, a commitment to state-of-the art treatments and technology, and continual training for the entire staff.

Education and Associations

After receiving his Bachelor of Science from California Polytechnic State University in 1992, Dr. Beck completed a surgical residency at University of California Davis in 1999. He continued to pursue his education and training even further, completing a Fellowship in Burn Surgery Research in 2000 at UC Davis, and a Craniofacial-Plastic Surgery Fellowship and a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency at University of Mississippi in 2003. Dr. Beck is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and maintains membership in several prestigious plastic surgery associations, including:

  • American Society of Plastic Surgeons
  • California Society of Plastic Surgeons
  • American College of Surgeons
  • American Association for Hand Surgery
  • American Medical Association

Plastic surgery is a very personal decision. Our emphasis is in providing individual care in a relaxed, private and personal way. We really strive to create a ‘No Rush Zone’, so every patient can absorb all the information they need at their own pace.

My primary passion is to help clients identify their goals, educate them about the safest and most effective options, and then deliver superb surgical technique with outstanding follow-up care.

Dr. Beck has authored numerous articles and is a frequent guest speaker at national meetings on topics of interest to plastic surgeons. The “Annals of Plastic Surgery” and the “Journal of Craniofacial Surgery” are a sample of his published works.
