Women Serving Women
Aside from being one of the leading Dallas plastic surgeons, she is proud to be a wife and mother. When she is not working to give her clients the best results in the Dallas area, she enjoys being a soccer mom, checking out local cultural events, reading, and traveling.
Dr. Teotia understands firsthand that being a woman in today’s world can be quite challenging. Women are expected to look their best continually, often while managing full careers, motherhood, and a busy lifestyle. She knows that her patient’s time and outward appearance are precious.
“I’m a mom. I have a lot of work-life balance to figure out, just like most women in the area.”
“The focus is on the patient. As it should be.”
A Life-Long Educator
Dr. Teotia’s road to becoming a plastic surgeon did not begin as most others. Before deciding to enroll in medical school, Dr. Teotia served as a middle school science teacher for Teachers for America. It was here (there?) where she was exposed to the difficulties of teaching in an underprivileged neighborhood, an experience that helped her gain a new perspective on life and shape her outstanding character. Dr. Teotia’s affinity towards helping others did not end here; instead, it transformed into another journey – the calling of a career in the medical field.
While she initially believed that she had to save lives to be a medical professional, Dr. Teotia eventually chose to be a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, a decision that she has stood by ever since.
“Through my own experience, I realized that helping improve patients’ quality of life can be just as rewarding. We work on our home, car, and relationships. We should feel just as comfortable working on ourselves.”
Dr. Teotia maintains her love of education and has been appointed as a clinical professor at three different medical schools. She also strives to inform all of her patients on their many procedure options. She finds great fulfillment in helping others look and feel their best, which is why her amazing results speak for themselves.
Dallas’s Top Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Teotia is widely respected as one of the leading surgeons in her field. After her middle-school teaching stint, Dr. Teotia completed multiple surgical fellowships at the University of North Carolina, including Pediatric Craniofacial Surgery, Wound Care Research, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

She later became a clinical assistant professor at UT-Southwestern Medical Center and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, Permian Basin Campus. She has received countless awards for her outstanding contributions to the field, including RealSelf’s Top Provider and D Magazine’s Top Provider as voted by her peers.
In addition to her past accomplishments, Dr. Teotia constantly aims to improve her craft with the latest methods. A self-proclaimed “data collector,” Dr. Teotia goes well out of her way to ask questions, read articles, contact experts, and practice new techniques before implementing them into her practice. She currently offers an in-office facelift, a procedure that is highly unique in the field.

Get to Know Dr. Teotia
I was born in Denver. My family lived in various cities in Colorado before moving to Minnesota. I graduated from high school in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree with Honors and Distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After teaching middle school science in Phoenix with the Teach For America program, I attended the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. I spent a decade training in surgery at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. My first plastic surgery practice was in Midland, Texas. My maternal family has resided in Midland for generations.
I believe that each patient is to be respected as an unique individual. Therefore, each patient has an individualized care plan. Patients are considered partners. The patient’s perspective and goal is what matters the most when planning a surgical procedure. Results should be natural in appearance.
I have always been interested in natural, aesthetic outcomes, and plastic surgery follows this path of interest.
I enjoy getting to know my patients. My patients become like family members over time.
Dedication and hard work!
I enjoy being with my husband, three children and two dogs. I also like to travel, catch up with old friends, exercise (mostly running after kids), and read.
Honest, caring, and hard working.
I think my patients sense that I truly care about them, that I have the skills to treat their medical conditions and that the outcomes of their aesthetic concerns will be positive.
