David B. Reath, M.D.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Reath’s motto is “The personal approach to personal change.” This is not just a catchphrase. His passion is using his skills and abilities to help his patients best improve the quality of their lives.
During your consultation, Dr. Reath takes the time to listen to you. Then he explains all of your options, answers your questions, and helps you decide if plastic surgery is right for you. Routinely, our patients, who come to us from the Knoxville area, Johnson City, Cookeville, Cleveland, and other Tennessee communities, tell us how nice Dr. Reath is. They are pleasantly surprised they are by the amount of time he spends with them one-on-one — especially if they’ve had consultations with other plastic surgeons. In addition to spending time with patients in the office, Dr. Reath also answers patient emails personally every morning before he starts operating. He even calls his patients the night of their surgery to check on them.
His Plastic Surgery Qualifications Are First-Rate
Not only is Dr. Reath a Board-certified plastic surgeon, but he also served as member-at-large of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Because of his passion for public education, the ASPS asked Dr. Reath to be Chairman of their Public Education Committee. He is the only plastic surgeon in East Tennessee to serve in a leadership position of the country’s foremost authority on plastic surgery.
Dr. Reath is a longtime resident of Knoxville, Tennessee. He and his wife have three children who are all married and spread out across the country in South Carolina, Colorado and East Tennessee. When not in the operating room, seeing patients in the office, or writing about plastic surgery education issues, Dr. Reath can usually be found singing baritone in the choir at the Church of the Ascension or riding his Peloton bike.
