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.

Neck Lift

Great experience and outcome


Great dr., great nurse, everyone knowldgeable and helpful.


Dr. And staff were amazing! I'm so pleased with my overall experience.


Dr Whitfield was thorough in assessing my options and recommending realistic next strps

Breast Reconstruction

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Whitfield and his Staff! My initial consult with him was very honest, informative, and encouraging. I could feel the compassion and concern he had for me, my needs. He truly listened, and was reassuring which left me with a sense of hope and excitement! Something I hadn't felt since my bilateral mastectomy three years ago.Thank You Dr. Whitfield and your wonderful Staff![name]


I've met, consulted with, and had surgeries by numerous plastic surgeons. Dr. Whitfield was more thorough, patient, knowledgeable, compassionate, and professional than 90% of them. He may also be the MOST honest, which to me is the a top trait. The procedure I sought was not suitable for me, it turned out. Yet losing my business was not his concern, only establishing suitability. He has integrity. He's awesome.

Fractora Skin Resurfacing

Professional, knowledge of latest technology, I did not feel rushed, Dr answered all my questions, comfortable environment, friendly staff Very little redness and swelling or soreness after Fractora. Began to see results after about a week

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Very please with my experience and my results. It was very easy to relax and feel comfortable discussing issues with the Dr. Desired result with minimal bruising


I went to see Dr. Whitfield specifically to learn more about the MiraDry procedure. Everything about the consult and subsequent procedure was exceptional. Dr. Whitfield was very generous with his time and his staff was courteous and professional, but warm and friendly at the same time. A little hard to find the office, but DeeDee had warned me and given me a direct contact phone number if I couldn't find it (which I couldn't). The visit must have been meant to be because they had a cancellation and were able to get me in for the treatment that afternoon. It took about 2 hours and was mildly uncomfortable on a few occasions, but certainly within tolerable limits. I am about 3 weeks out now. Immediately afterwards my underarms were swollen and sore. But they had prepared me for that. It has taken some time for that swelling to go down, but since the procedure I have been almost completely underarm sweat free-something I had never dreamed was possible after living my entire life with hyperhydrosis. And I am about 95% armpit hair-free, something they had told me could happen, but I figured it was too good to be true. I am about 3 weeks out and still have a few tender marble sized nodules in my armpits, but they are shrinking. I would absolutely do it again and I would absolutely use Dr. Whitfield and his team to do it. Thanks guys!


Staff was very friendly and offered answers to questions I had. Dr Whitfield was very thorough with explaining the procedure and results obtained.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Whitfield and his staff were so accommodating, listened to my concerns, and were able to answer all of my questions surrounding surgery. They are compassionate and I felt at ease with my first interaction with the team. Going through breast cancer and needing a double mastectomy has been the hardest thing I've gone through but Dr. Whitfield has made it feel like a bump in the road and has given me my femininity back. I look forward to my follow-up procedures with him.


Dr. Whitfield and his staff make you feel very comfortable. They answered all my questions and concerns as it was my first time for injections. I'm glad i decided to do it! I will definitely go back for more.

Breast Reconstruction

All questions answered...surgeon seems experienced and staff very helpful and friendly


The entire staff especially Dr. Whitfield, were very compassionate about my recent diagnosis of breast cancer and made me feel like taking care of me was a priority to them.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Everything was explained, I wasn't rushed out of the room. Doctor Whitfield explained everything in great detail.

Breast Implant Removal

The staff and surgeon were all very friendly and receptive to my needs. All very knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable with them.


I appreciated the entire experience from start to finish. The office staff are amazing and Dr Whitfield is extremely respectful, kind and honest. The entire experience was great.

Breast Reconstruction

The staff were awesome and I continue to go back to this day. Dr.Whitfield treated my surgery with professionalism and science. Much better than some of the other spa-like practices.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Whitfield is fantastic! I went in for lip fillers (Restalyne Refyne), and I am really enjoying my results. The staff was very friendly and professional. I had no bruising after the injections, however, I did have swelling for about two weeks. Everyone is asking where I got them done! I would definitely recommend Dr. Whitfield for this procedure, and will be going back for touch ups in the future. Although I wish he was in San Antonio, I have no problem driving to Austin to receive great care.

Breast Reconstruction

Very friendly staff, Dr. Was professional and informative. A little trouble with encrypted email codes but finally got through it.
