Founded and led by Dr. Eric Barker, Peak Plastic Surgery Center is a premier plastic surgery facility in Glendale. Dr. Barker is a patient-centered plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring, tummy tucks, male body contouring, mommy makeovers, breast augmentation, and breast lifts.
Peak Plastic Surgery Center opened in November 2020, with their patients’ needs in mind. Dr. Barker has plans to expand his practice so he did not want to use his last name in the business name. He felt using the word Peak was appropriate for the Denver area and it was available. Equipped with all new furniture and technology, their minor treatment rooms, reception area, and operative rooms are private, spacious, and comfortable.
For utmost privacy when you leave their office, the facility has a back exit with a powder station so you can refresh your makeup if needed. They also provide an electronic medical record system that helps you find insurance information, pay bills online, and fill out patient paperwork. This makes it easier for you to find information in one spot and to check-in online before your appointment.
Dr. Barker moved from Chicago in 2019, five days after his daughter was born, knowing that Denver was the place he and his wife wanted to raise a family. “When deciding where to set up Peak Plastic Surgery Center, the choice was easy for my family and I,” said Dr. Eric Barker. “Growing up with
an appreciation for the mountains and the overall atmosphere of Denver, I knew it would be a perfect fit for my business and family. My wife, being an alumnus of CU, was also paramount in choosing to move our family to Denver from Chicago, Illinois. This area provides the best patients, and I couldn’t be happier practicing here in Denver.”
Dr. Barker earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. Following his medical degree, he completed his combined training in general surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery at Rush University Medical Center and John H. Stroger Jr. (Cook County) Hospital in Chicago, IL. Dr. Barker was able to train under distinguished breast reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Anuja Antony, and prestigious cosmetic surgeon, Dr. John Q. Cook.
Upon completing his training in Austin, Texas, Dr. Barker wanted to open his own practice and not work for a hospital system. So, he began working on that dream in September 2019. He built his office space from scratch and down to the studs.
Why did Dr. Barker choose plastic surgery as his specialty? “I appreciated the intricacies and demanding nature of the surgeries and procedures done in the plastic surgery field,” said Dr. Barker. “I was also drawn to the fact that I can help people change the perception of themselves, or how others may view them. Plastic surgery is a field where it really is a partnership between surgeon and patient. You must work together to arrive at the best possible outcome for each individual patient need. I do not take it lightly that people place their trust in me to help guide them, and ultimately use my expertise to obtain their surgical and cosmetic goals. This is a great responsibility that makes me strive to be the best surgeon and physician I can be.”
So far, reviews are complimentary of Peak Plastic Surgery for this very reason. “I am very excited about my new look, I feel much better about myself, I have new confidence and people tell me I carry myself differently,” said one reviewer referred to as E.H. “Dr. Barker was highly recommended to me and more than exceeded my expectations. I had a great experience and have only good things to say about my experience at Peak Plastic Surgery Center.”
At Peak Plastic Surgery, Dr. Barker is passionate about helping patients feel more confident in themselves. He works hard to ensure you feel knowledgeable a
bout your procedure options, and he feels grateful for entrusting your cosmetic needs with him. During your consultation, you and Dr. Barker will work together to create a treatment plan that works best for your needs. “The best way to get the best surgical outcome is to have a great partnership with the patient,” said Dr. Barker. “You can’t do that if you are not comfortable.”
“We joined the chamber because being in the Glendale/Cherry Creek area, we want to make sure that we are actively involved in all community outreach programs and events because we want to be involved in the local community,” said Dr. Barker. “We want to get involved in a lot of local charities and do a lot of local events. It’s important to stay in touch so that we are helping the community as much as we can.”
Dr. Barker has authored numerous journal articles, book chapters and has had the opportunity to present at national conferences. Today, he uses his extensive plastic and reconstructive surgery knowledge to help patients around the greater Denver area achieve their individual medical and surgical goals. Peak Plastic Surgery Center offers a comfortable atmosphere for patients to explore their plastic surgery needs. During your consultation, patients will work together with Dr. Barker and his staff to develop a custom treatment plan.
Dr. Barker lives in Wash Park with his wife Alison and their two children. He emphasizes the importance of family and being a good husband and father while letting the rest take care of itself. He also prides himself on his employees enjoying coming to work each day and having a family atmosphere where clients are treated with dignity and respect.
