See why Central Illinois turns to Dr. Baker to meet its aesthetic goals.

Allergan Master Injector

Dr. Baker is a surgeon who has been recognized by Allergan, the maker of BOTOX® Cosmetic, as a "master injector." Dr. Baker completed an intensive training course to better understand how BOTOX affects the facial muscles and how to best inject the product for desired patients' results.

History of Success

Dr. Baker has been a respected plastic surgeon in Central Illinois since 1980. Despite this long track record of success, he strives to keep advancing and improving his techniques and the range of services he offers to better cater to his patients in Decatur, Champaign, and Monticello, IL.

Performs Non-Surgical Procedures

Unlike many cosmetic and plastic surgery practices with a nurse or physician's assistant injecting BOTOX treatments, Dr. Baker handles all BOTOX cases. When you choose nonsurgical injections, you're still getting treatment from our board-certified plastic surgeon. 

Variety of Procedures

In addition to plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Baker specializes in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of hand conditions and injuries. Our surgeon also performs laser surgeries. His breadth of knowledge allows patients to get the care they need from one convenient location.

Why Dr. Baker Chooses to Practice in Central Illinois

Dr. Baker is licensed to practice medicine in Illinois, Florida, and California. While he has the qualifications to practice plastic surgery in various states, has operated in countries overseas, and holds multiple certifications and state licenses, he chooses to help patients of Central Illinois achieve their aesthetic goals. Dr. Baker explains why he decided to set up his offices in Decatur, Champaign, and Monticello, IL:

“I am an Illinois farm boy. People here are kind, proud, self-sufficient, and caring. We have supercomputers beyond our imagination yet in sight of flourishing fields that feed the world. We have blazing foundries and blazing stars. In the Midwest the sweat of the brow and the power of the mind dance in constant synergy. Time swallows all facts and reality, but never the Spirit. The Spirit lives here. That’s why.”

Dr. Baker opened his private practice in 1980 and has since expanded to three Illinois locations in Decatur, Champaign, and Monticello.
