Meet Dr. Baker 

Dr. Baker

Dr. Matthew Baker is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has been providing premier-quality cosmetic surgery in the Denver metropolitan area since 2005. Combining meticulous surgical technique with an eye for timeless aesthetic beauty and perfection, Dr. Baker is committed to providing his patients with the very best in plastic surgery. Under the guiding principles of anatomical restoration and aesthetic rejuvenation, he reveals the underlying natural beauty of each patient with a customized, patient-specific surgical strategy. “I truly enjoy the process of getting to know my patients’ goals and desires and then creating an individualized operative plan with them,” he explains. Of course, Dr. Baker’s easy-going personality and clear communication style have helped him perfect this process over the years.   

“My goal,” says Dr. Baker, “is to always achieve the most beautiful and natural-looking results for every patient in the safest and most predictable way.”  


After graduating from the prestigious New College of Florida, Dr. Baker was admitted to the Physician Scientist Program at the University of Miami in South Florida, where he obtained both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees. Upon graduating, Dr. Baker successfully matched in general surgery at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC. He first became passionate about plastic surgery in the early 2000s during his residency training in general surgery. It was there that he saw firsthand how amazing and inspiring plastic and reconstructive surgery could be, especially when restoring both function and beauty.   

Dr. Baker explains, “I suppose it was the combination of advanced surgical techniques, cutting-edge innovation, and aesthetically beautiful results that I found so inspiring about plastic surgery.”   

Drawing on this inspiration and with the encouragement of mentors like Dr. Chris Attinger and Dr. Scott Spear, Dr. Baker applied for residency training in plastic surgery at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. During his plastic surgery residency, Dr. Baker met and worked with Dr. G. Patrick Maxwell, who became an influential mentor and close friend. This ultimately led him to complete the aesthetic surgery fellowship with Dr. Maxwell, focusing on advanced surgical techniques, including surgery to correct unsatisfactory cosmetic breast surgery outcomes.   

“Dr. Baker’s integrity is what drew me to him as the surgeon for my breast augmentation. When I initially met with him, he worked with me to make sure that my vision complemented my body type and build. I was impressed with his presence and patience as my partner, and I asked questions. The outcome of my augmentation is exactly what we discussed, and the work is impeccable. As I am healing, I can tell that my scars will be nearly invisible, and my results look better day by day. I would recommend Dr. Baker for anyone looking for a doctor to share the same vision as them.”
