Medical Director – Dr. Michael S. Beckenstein, MD Plastic Surgery

Dr. Beckenstein grew up in New York and obtained his bachelor’s degree from Union College in Schenectady. He then earned his medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School in 1987. After completing both general and plastic surgery residencies, Dr. Beckenstein was selected for a plastic surgery research fellowship at Case Western Reserve University.

Before establishing his plastic surgery practice in Birmingham, Dr. Beckenstein trained throughout the U.S. under some of the most accomplished plastic surgeons in the world. That experience honed his technical skills and creative approach to cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. His qualifications, combined with his easygoing, down-to-earth nature, make Dr. Beckenstein a popular choice among plastic surgery patients in the Birmingham area.

Dr. Beckenstein is certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and the American Board of Surgery and he’s a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). It’s important that your surgeon is ABPS-certified because it requires rigorous training and experience not matched by cosmetic surgery boards with names that sound official.

In addition, Dr. Beckenstein is an active member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), in which only 30% of plastic surgeons gain entry, and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Dr. Beckenstein is pleased to be working with GetHairMD™ and has been very impressed with the results patients have received.
