Dr. Patrick Beckham has seen a great deal of advancement in plastic surgery during his 35 years of servicing patients in Austin and surrounding areas. First certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1972, Dr. Beckham is known as one of the first innovators in breast-implant technology and has kept up-to-date with the changes in surgery techniques.
