Meet Dr. Ted Eisenberg
Ted Eisenberg, D.O., FACOS, FAACS, has more than 25 years of experience as a Plastic Surgeon in Philadelphia. For the first 13 years of his career, he did general plastic and reconstructive surgery from head to toe. Since 1998, he has focused his practice entirely on cosmetic breast surgery. He has performed more than 6,000 breast augmentations, earning him a Guinness World Record for the most breast implant surgeries done in a lifetime.
Dr. Eisenberg is double board-certified in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by the AOBS. After four years of medical school, he took seven years of specialty training, including residencies in general surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery. In honor of his extensive postgraduate education, he was named a Fellow in the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons.
“Thank you for the extraordinary job you did on my breast augmentation surgery! I’m so happy. Every morning I wake up and it feels just like Christmas.” – Dana
A leader in his profession, Dr. Ted Eisenberg has been at the forefront of ground-breaking techniques in plastic surgery. In 2003, he created the I.D.E.A.L Breast Lift, an innovative procedure for breast lift surgery that maximizes the lift and minimizes the scar. Much of his earlier work involved the use of tissue expander implants for breast, scalp, eye and nose reconstruction. In the mid-1980s, he introduced these pioneering procedures to the Philadelphia area. His achievements – and the differences they made in his patients’ lives — have been profiled in the media.
The Go-To Expert
With his wife, Joyce, Dr. Eisenberg wrote The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths (Incompra Press 2012). In the book, he answers hundreds of actual patient questions about breast development, breast health and breast implants. The book has won 10 national book awards in categories including women’s health, humor, popular culture, and design. He and Joyce were interviewed on many stations, including Fox News.
Dr. Eisenberg has been a guest speaker on TV and radio, lending his expertise to discussions about trends in cosmetic breast surgery, saline and silicone implants, body piercing and skin cancer prevention.
“The Scoop On Breasts” is an informative, compassionate and comprehensive guide to breast enhancement surgery, a must-have for women who want to change their genetic destiny.” – Victoria Zdrok, J.D, Ph.D.
A Respected Teacher
Dr. Eisenberg is an associate professor of surgery at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He also teaches his cosmetic breast surgery techniques to doctors from around the world. He is a frequent contributor to academic journals and a lecturer on topics relating to his experience with over 7,000 cosmetic breast surgery procedures.
For over a decade, Dr. Eisenberg served on a national committee that evaluates the standards for plastic surgery residencies. He was National Chairman of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and served on the certifying board of the AOBS.
Dr. Eisenberg has been happily married for more than 30 years to his childhood sweetheart, Joyce, who is a humor columnist and co-author of “The Dictionary of Jewish Words.” His son, Ben, is the Owner and President of Smarter Campaigns, a Denver-based marketing, political consulting, and new media company, and Director of Global Operations at SavvyPol Consulting Group. He’s a graduate of the University of Colorado and George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management. His daughter, Samantha, recently graduated from Widener University’s dual master’s program in Social Work and Human Sexuality Education. She is a therapist at a Philadelphia outpatient mental health agency, a singer-songwriter, and a massage therapist. Her undergraduate degree is from Goucher College.
Dr. Eisenberg’s unique hobby of knife and tomahawk throwing has been featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer (“Nip and Duck”) and on CBS 3 TV. After years of being an onlooker, Joyce now also competes. Dr. Eisenberg and Joyce took ballroom dancing lessons for years; they dance wherever and whenever they can.
When Joyce was 8, her mother, just 34, died from breast cancer. This loss inspired Dr. Eisenberg’s interest in breast health. In his ongoing commitment to women in their fight against breast cancer, Dr. Eisenberg donates a portion of the proceeds from his cosmetic breast surgery cases and from sales of The Scoop on Breasts to the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Foundation, whose core program is to provide free mammograms for women with little or no medical insurance. As a Corporate Sponsor, along with Genuardi’s, Bristol-Myers Squibb and PECO, Dr. Eisenberg supports the organization’s Screening and Diagnostic Tests Program. He has also participated in a plastic and reconstructive surgery mission in Quito, Ecuador; volunteered at skin cancer screenings; and spoke on breast surgery for several women’s health lecture series.
