North Texas Plastic Surgery was founded in Southlake and Plano Texas by Dr. Sacha Obaid. Dr. Obaid grew up in sunny Southern California where he was a star water polo player and swimmer. An excellent student, Dr. Obaid was given entrance to the prestigious BA/MD program at the University of Southern California, an honor that guaranteed him acceptance to medical school even though he was 17 and still in high school!
Dr. Obaid went on to college at the University of Southern California where he was captain of the Men’s Crew Team. He also excelled in the classroom fulfilling his premedical coursework while completing a degree in Economics, Communications and Social Science in just three years!
Dr. Obaid was just 20 years old when he was accepted to Harvard Medical School. It was there that his interest in plastic surgery flourished. Dr. Obaid studied under the masters of plastic surgery at Harvard where he not only was an outstanding student, but also was asked to lead breast reconstruction research that was eventually published in the premier plastic surgery journal, PRS.
Dr. Obaid finished at the top of his class at Harvard and then moved to Dallas where he trained in the country’s top plastic surgery program at the University of Texas Southwestern. There he developed his skills in cosmetic surgery, studying the finer points of breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty and liposuction. He also reconnected with a lifelong dream of helping children with facial differences as well.
This dream took him to New York City where Dr. Obaid trained in craniofacial surgery at the prestigious New York University Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. There, Dr. Obaid learned how to reconstruct the faces of children born with cleft lip, cleft palate, craniosynostosis, and other major deformations of the bones and soft tissues of the face. It was there that Dr. Obaid realized that the only way to truly understand the face and how to rejuvenate it, is to understand how to take it apart and rebuild it from it’s most basic elements.
Dr. Obaid has quickly developed a local, national, and international reputation for his work and skill. He has been asked to write educational texts on Rhinoplasty, Non-Operative Facial Rejuvenation, Abdominoplasty, Thigh Lifts, Arm Lifts (Brachioplasty), Mandible Reconstruction, and Pediatric Facial Reconstruction for other plastic surgeons. In the past two years alone, the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Cleft Palate Association, and the International Society of Craniofacial Surgeons have asked him to speak at their annual meetings in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Colorado, and Brazil!
Dr. Obaid has taken his unique training at Harvard, UT Southwestern and NYU, and his skills in reconstructing and rejuvenating the face and body and has brought them to Southlake, Texas! Dr. Obaid is available for one on one consultations in his surgery center on Southlake Boulevard or his office in Plano, Texas.
Dr. Obaid lives in Westlake with his wife, Dr. Larrison, who is a board certified Head and Neck Surgery Specialist. They have been married for three years and have two beautiful girls named Gaviana and Liliya.
