About Robert Whitfield:

Dr. Robert Whitfield is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon who specializes in cutting edge techniques for the breast, face and body. His philosophy is simple: he always takes the time to do it the right way. Dr. Whitfield treats every patient, whether it’s for filler or a Mommy Makeover, the exact same. His goal is to deliver the highest quality care. He wants his patients to leave the office happy with results that exceed their expectations. 

Born and bred in Las Vegas, Dr. Whitfield received his medical degree from the University of Las Vegas School of Medicine. This was followed by six years of surgical training, as well as his plastic surgery residency, at Indiana University Medical Center. He returned to Nevada for a one year microsurgery fellowship before settling down to practice and teach at the Medical College of Wisconsin for 7 years.  

In 2012, Dr. Whitfield came to Austin and became renown for his breast reconstruction work, particularly the DIEP flap. He set up his own practice in 2017. Here, he offers the men and women of Austin a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures from breast augmentation, liposuction and facelifts to Juvéderm, Botox and BodyTite 

Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Whitfield’s approach to medicine has really been shaped by both his upbringing and his education. As a child of the “wild west”, he was born with an adventurous spirit. One of the reasons that he was drawn to plastic surgery is due to its constant innovation. There aren’t problems in plastic surgery, there are simply issues for which a solution has yet to be invented. He tempers this intrepid attitude with a lot of Midwestern pragmatism. It makes for a pretty winning combination. 

Dr. Whitfield was elected to the 2017 Texas Super Doctors list and  selected by his peers as Best Doctors in America from 2004-2014 and 2017. He was voted as one of the top doctors in Austin by the Austin Monthly Magazine 2013-2014 and has been recognized as one of the 100 Top Influencers in cosmetic surgery by RealSelf.  Dr. Whitfield is an active member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Medical Association and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has been published in many peer reviewed medical journals and has given numerous presentations both here and abroad.  

Married with two children, Dr. Whitfield spends most of his free time driving his son and daughter to their respective soccer games. However, when he and his wife can get away, they love to travel internationally; Spain and France are two of his favorites. For now, though, he loves everything about living in Austin from the culture to the food to the really fantastic music.

Eyelid Surgery

Because Whitfield, Sarah, and Allie are baller AF $1,000 you know who’s writing this based on that sentence alone.

Breast Reconstruction

The following statement will provide you with everything you need to know about my consultation and why I am more than Highly Satisfied with the outcome. I am currently working with Dr. Whitfield on redoing my previous double mastectomy-reconstruction with implants that have become very painful. Not only was I diagnosed with what is called Capsular Contracture in both breasts, he also explained to me that there is a procedure in which he can remove my implants and capsules (scar tissue) and use my own tissue and fat to create more natural looking and feeling breasts. I’m not sure you will find a more knowledgeable and compassionate surgeon in Austin, who will work with you to do what is best for you and your particular situation. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by making a consultation appointment with Dr. Whitfield and his phenomenal staff. The ladies are amazing! It’s been 9 years since my initial surgery and I’ve never been so excited about the possibilities of a more beautiful, more natural and healthier me! Thank you Dr. Whitfield! ~ [name]

Dr. Whitfield is genuinely concerned about wellbeing and outcome of his patients. He's well informed and listened to my concerns and desired results. His staff is friendly and accommodating All of this is in comparison with another plastic surgeon I met with prior to consultation with Dr. Whitfield.

Injectable Fillers

Dr was patient , engaging and took his time explaining all parts positive and negative Never felt rushed or anxious

Breast Implant Removal

The caring and professional atmosphere Dr. Whitfield and his staff practice was very comforting and respectful. His expertise was undoubtedly the reason I have booked with him but when he spent over an hour with myself and husband on what to expect, sealed our confidence that he was the man that we trusted the most to perform my surgery. Some may be surprised at his charges but who cares because you are getting what you pay for! Without a doubt, I have complete confidence and respect for his skills not only as a surgeon but as an apparent caring man who is practicing what he preaches by helping others. Thank you Dr. Whitfield and staff for making this a much easier process than expected.

Breast Reduction

Both the surgeon and nurse were very helpful and spent good quality time with me. I am very impressed with the consistent communication and attention they have been providing me as we anticipate this procedure.

Other

My insurance information was not put into consideration before giving me a quote, which was higher than I expected. I thought that some of the cost might be covered by insurance since I described several symptoms I hoped the surgery would resolve, but it was not covered after I spent some time talking with the billing coordinator. The quote also had a $1000 mistake on the total line, which was confusing but understandable human error. That being said, I did feel confident in the doctor's ability and attention at the consultation and that's why I chose this practice for my upcoming surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Difficult to find office. Would have preferred a larger size for recommendation of implant, but I'm not highly disappointed

Other

Dr. Whitfield and his staff are very pleasant and very knowledgeable. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Whitfield is conservative and doesn't do any surgery or procedure that you don't need.

Restylane

Dr. Whitfield and Sarah we're so nice and knowledgeable about the procedure. They knew exactly what I wanted and how to achieve my goals. My lips look so good and it was only possible because Sarah is an artist!

Breast Reconstruction

The Doctor was really thorough on explaining the procedure, did a detailed examination and the rest of the personnel was really nice. Provided excellent materials and follow-up.

Breast Implant Removal

From the moment I walked into Dr Whitfield' s office, I was greeted by a polite and respectful receptionist. My consultation was very thorough and Dr Whitfield took a lot of time answering all my questions and explained possible scenarios and what to expect, he put me right at ease. So much that I scheduled my surgery asap. During my preop, surgery and post op Dr Whitfield and his amazing staff has been there every step of the way, making sure I was comfortable and safe. A very professional and compassionate team that I will highly recommend them to anyone and use for any future needs. I was nervous about my breasts looking weird after an explant, but so far they are looking really good and my pain has been very manageable.
