History of Excellence

About Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery

OCEAN DRIVE Plastic Surgery is Florida’s premier center for cosmetic surgery, having a 30-year history of providing elite surgical and non-surgical cosmetic services on Florida’s Treasure Coast including Vero Beach, Sebastian, Melbourne, and the greater South Florida region as well as being a destination location for patients from around the country.

Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery was established in 1980 as Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Center, a privately owned surgery center founded by the nation’s thought leader in facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Ferdinand Becker.

In 2011, Dr. Becker handpicked Dr. Alan Durkin, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon, to carry on his tradition of providing concierge medical care to his patients in Florida. “It’s an honor and a privilege to have been selected to carry on Dr. Becker’s practice and I’m proud to follow in his footsteps, says Dr. Alan Durkin.  It’s an honor and a privilege to have been selected to carry on Dr. Becker’s practice and I’m proud to follow in his footsteps” ——Dr. Durkin. Upon recruiting Dr. Alan Durkin to Vero Beach, Dr. Durkin brought extensive surgical training, experience, and knowledge in breast and body work, that had not previously been available to Vero Beach. Thus, the plastic surgery center now offers cosmetic surgical procedures for the face, as well as for the breast, and body. In 2012, the Center’s name was changed from “Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center” to “OCEAN DRIVE® Plastic Surgery” to better represent the Center’s greater breadth of cosmetic procedures.
