About Dr. Sacha Obaid
Dr. Sacha Obaid founded North Texas Plastic Surgery with two goals in mind. The first was to help women who have had children regain confidence in their appearance through a unique mommy makeover experience. The second was to help children born with facial differences, irrespective of their ability to pay for their services.
The journey for Dr. Obaid began at the University of Southern California. After fulfilling his premedical coursework and earning an undergraduate degree in just three years, Dr. Obaid was accepted to Harvard Medical School at the age of 20.
It was there that his interest in plastic surgery flourished. Dr. Obaid earned many honors during his time at Harvard and 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 breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty and liposuction.
Following a lifelong dream, Dr. Obaid later went to New York City to train 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.
Dr. Obaid is published in numerous medical journals and has been asked to write educational texts for other plastic surgeons on Rhinoplasty, Tummy Tucks, Arm Lifts, Thigh Lifts, Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Facial Rejuvenation, and Facial Reconstruction. Dr. Obaid has also been an expert speaker at annual meetings of the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Cleft Palate Association, and the International Society of Craniofacial Surgeons. He has lectured across the United States and internationally.
