Meet Dr. Stiles

Dr. Christine Stiles’ passion for a career in medicine was sparked by her love of caring for children. During her training in pediatric medicine, she helped care for babies on the cleft lip and palate and craniofacial service. After seeing the dramatic change that a cleft lip repair brings to a child’s life, she knew that she wanted to pursue a career in plastic surgery. After completing her pediatric residency, she began a residency in general surgery and plastic surgery.

Upon graduation, the combination of her training in pediatrics and plastic surgery is what led her to Dallas, to join the International Craniofacial Institute. With the establishment of The Center for Breast & Body Contouring and Plastiks for Kids in 2005, she was able to provide women and children excellence in plastic surgery care in a comforting environment. Writing My Funny Ears: A Guide to Otoplasty for Girls and Boys brought together her unique background to help both the child and their parents understand ear surgery and look forward to having this done.

Joining the UT Southwestern Department of Plastic Surgery offers Dr. Stiles the ability to bring both her expertise and the resources of a world-class institution to her patients.

During her years in practice, she has enjoyed 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.

Many minimally invasive procedures help patients improve their appearance and feel better about themselves. Dr. Stiles truly enjoys helping her patients achieve youthful, natural-looking results. Patients want to look like themselves, just better. “Returning to the self you remember is what we are able to accomplish through plastic surgery,” says Dr. Stiles. “It is wonderful to watch a patient’s self confidence soar post-operatively!”

Through plastic surgery, lives are truly changed. Whether helping a child with a congenital deformity or an adult who is impaired by his or her appearance, plastic surgeons are able to help their patients lead happier, fuller lives. As Dr. Stiles says, “We enhance and reveal the patient’s natural beauty. It is a privilege to help someone along the journey of such a powerful change in their life!”
