Meet Dr. Carman Stiles

Dr. Christine Carman Stiles knows that when people don’t feel confident about the way they look, they often make choices that limit their enjoyment of day-to-day living. Her passion is helping her patients enhance and reveal their natural beauty, so that they can participate more fully in their lives.

“Patients want to look like themselves, just better,” she says. “Returning to the self you remember is what we are able to accomplish through plastic surgery.”

After 18 years in private practice, Dr. Carman Stiles joined the UT Southwestern Department of Plastic Surgery so that she could offer patients her expertise with the resources of a world-class institution.

She performs a wide range of aesthetic procedures, including minimally invasive procedures, nonsurgical treatments, and surgery. She especially enjoys helping mothers restore their pre-pregnancy bodies with the Mommy Makeover. The physical changes of pregnancy and the demands of motherhood often leave women unhappy with their appearance and frustrated with their ability to improve their bodies on their own. The combination of a breast procedure and an abdominal procedure, the Mommy Makeover rejuvenates a woman's post-baby body and restores her self-esteem. “It is a privilege to help someone along the journey of such a powerful change in their life,” she says.

Whether through a Mommy Makeover, facial rejuvenation such as Smartlipo, or another body contouring procedure, Dr. Carman Stiles’s goal is to her patients achieve youthful, natural-looking results that help them feel better. “It makes a real difference in people’s lives,” she says, “and it is wonderful to watch a patient’s self-confidence soar post-operatively.”
