Dr. Teitelbaum is internationally recognized for his expertise in breast augmentation. He has extensive experience working with both saline and silicone implants, having helped design and test the most current models. Dr. Teitelbaum lectures and teaches other surgeons how to perform breast augmentation surgery and achieve the best results with minimal pain and recovery time.
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.

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.
