Our History

Destin plastic surgeon Dr. William R. Burden, MD, FACS, founded Destin Plastic Surgery in 1995. He brought new technology and surgical procedures to North Florida. Dr. Burden aspired to creating a world-class plastic surgery facility that would not only attract people from around the region, but also from around the world. Soon after his arrival, he performed cutting edge surgeries that set a new standard. He was also able to communicate more effectively with first of its kind digital imaging used during the consultation. Superior results and doctor-patient communication combined to drive word of mouth referrals to the office for face, breast and body procedures.

Dr. Burden and his wife, Pamela, started The Anti Aging Skin Care Clinic – the area’s first physician supervised skin care clinic. Similarly, he was the first plastic surgeon to implement BOTOX® cosmetic treatments as a non-surgical alternative for facial rejuvenation. Their dedication to innovation and staying on the forefront of plastic surgery, skin care, and alternative treatments established Destin Plastic Surgery as a premier plastic surgery facility in the Southeast and internationally.

After years of planning and design, Dr. Burden was able to build and develop a world-class facility where surgical and non-surgical treatments are available from an experienced and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Burden spent countless hours personally overseeing the advanced training of the staff.

Dr. Burden realized plastic surgery had grown to encompass more treatments than surgery alone. Plastic surgery encompassed the realm of healthy living, skin care, and surgery.

Awards And Advancements

In 2003, the skin care clinic expanded from 1 esthetician to 3 and BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable treatments more than doubled. The Mentor Corporation recognized Destin Plastic surgery as one of the top breast augmentation centers in the country. Destin Plastic Surgery’s staff is known for their experience and dedication to staying in the forefront of leading technology.

Dr. Burden performed the first “No Scar on the Breast” and “No Scar on the Face” procedures in Northwest Florida. He has performed over 5,000 of these procedures. Dr. Burden is one of only a few surgeons that have achieved this level of experience. Dr. Burden performs hundreds of procedures per year, and is recognized for his endoscopic minimal-incision surgical techniques. He has refined these techniques to advance many of the current minimal-incision procedures and obtain superior surgical results. Dr. Burden has also instructed many other plastic surgeons, both nationally and internationally, on these techniques and to share his expertise. Additionally, he has been published in medical journals.
