Considered by many colleagues to be a pioneer in plastic surgery, Dr. Tebbetts has also been recognized by several publications as being one of the best cosmetic surgeons in this country.

Dallas Plastic Surgeon: Breast Augmentation Innovator
Dr. Tebbetts has developed and published numerous scientific articles in the most respected professional journal in plastic surgery, and is recognized by surgeons nationally and internationally as the surgeon who first developed techniques and processes that predictably enable patients to be out to dinner the evening of their breast augmentation and return to full normal activity within 24 hours. Dr. Tebbetts is the first surgeon in the history of breast augmentation to achieve and publish a zero percent reoperation rate for a consecutive series of patients within an independently monitored FDA PMA study.
Dr. Tebbetts, with his wife Terrye, have authored three editions of The Best Breast, the most comprehensive book resource currently published for patients who are considering breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Tebbetts is also the author of the most comprehensive reference book for surgeons on primary breast augmentation, Augmentation Mammaplasty: Redefining the Patient and Surgeon Experience.
He is as much an artist and educator, as he is innovator. A staunch advocate of educating patients and helping patients make optimal decisions based on proved processes, Dr. Tebbetts and his wife Terrye prioritize optimal care for each and every one of their patients. Both share a plain talk, no nonsense, and ‘substance instead of fluff’ approach to educating their patients, helping make optimal decisions, and a commitment to delivering the most state-of-the-art breast augmentation surgery with the most rapid and predictable recovery and lowest reoperation rates in the world.
Dr. Tebbetts lives in Dallas. He and his wife, Terrye, are the proud parents of a teenage daughter, Kas, two Chesapeake Bay retrievers, a golden retriever, and a basset hound/Newfoundland cross rescue dog. Dr. Tebbetts is passionate about his work in photography, enjoying the art of taking a still life to a new level as much as he enjoys tracking wildlife in the snow for that perfect shot! The Tebbetts enjoy horses, dogs, almost any outdoor activities, and often spend weekends at their farm in East Texas.
