In the past few years, Dr. Teitelbaum has given over fifty lectures to other plastic surgeons on breast augmentation and breast implant revision surgery—including talks across the U.S. and in Brazil, England, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, and Sweden. He is also recognized locally as one of just a few Los Angeles cosmetic surgeons asked to join the esteemed teaching faculty of UCLA Medical School, where he is Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery.
Chapter in major plastic surgery textbook about how to ideally position an implant relative to the muscle
Dr. Teitelbaum has published recent articles on breast augmentation in the prestigious journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—including, among others, a landmark paper on the preservation of breast tissue during augmentation, a paper on reducing the need for patients to have multiple operations, and a roundtable discussion on breast augmentation he led with the most elite names in cosmetic surgery. He is a reviewer of breast augmentation articles for both major plastic surgery journals and is therefore current with every recent development in breast augmentation. He has written recent textbook chapters on both initial and revision breast augmentation surgery, including the augmentation chapter in the most widely read plastic surgery textbook.
Dr. Teitelbaum is a principal figure in creating the curricula used to teach other surgeons how to select the proper implants for each patient and achieve the most natural results. He is also a lead instructor in the breast augmentation course offered to plastic surgeons at the annual meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery — the largest aesthetic plastic surgery meeting in the world.
Dr. Teitelbaum was a member of the national plastic surgery task force that developed the Covid-19 protocols for plastic surgery offices. He is therefore well-versed in all of the recommendations and his office meets or exceeds all of them. By now you are familiar with all the obvious measures such as reminding patients and staff not to come to the office if they have any symptoms, taking temperatures, maintaining social distancing, having everyone wear masks, placing hand sanitizers everywhere, reducing the number of patients in the office at one time, testing all surgical patients, etc. One unique feature is that Dr. Teitelbaum’s operating room has "laminar flow" – a very advanced system that directs the flow of air from a large diffuser on the ceiling to exhausts near the floor, ensuring that the fresh air flows in one direction. This not only reduces the chance of COVID infections for the patients and staff, but it also reduces the risk of surgical infections.
