Steven Teitelbaum is an Associate Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the UCLA School of Medicine, past President of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, and has been in private practice in Santa Monica since 1995. He specializes exclusively in aesthetic plastic surgery.
Dr. Teitelbaum received his medical education at UCLA School of Medicine and he completed his surgical residency at Harvard. This stellar academic and practical training developed him into a fine surgeon, and then the incomparable experience in the busy plastic surgery wards at LA County Hospital during his plastic surgery training at USC enabled him to hone and master his skills. He went on to become board certified in both Surgery and in Plastic Surgery, and is a member of nearly every national and international plastic surgery organization.
At Dr. Teitelbaum’s graduation from plastic surgery training, his program director introduced him by saying that he hoped that he would live up to his potential to be both an excellent surgeon and someone who would bring science to aesthetic surgery. Dr. Teitelbaum has since given lectures on five continents, teaches at the world’s largest and most important aesthetic surgery meeting, participated in multiple research trials, written book chapters and journal articles, and teaches final-year plastic surgery residents at UCLA.
He is the 2016-2017 President of the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF), the research and education arm of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) whose mission is to advance the aesthetics field for the benefit of patients, physicians and the entire field of medicine.
Dr. Teitelbaum holds leadership positions in the major plastic surgery societies including Treasurer and Legislative Committee Chair of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, as well as Board Member of the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation. He has advocated for the rights of plastic surgery patients on Capitol Hill, the state capital, and in front of the FDA.
Plastic Surgery is not just Dr. Teitelbaum’s vocation; it is his all-encompassing passion. Dr Teitelbaum has been a regular lecturer/teacher/expert at these prestigious international plastic surgery meetings:
