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.

Breast Reconstruction

From Dr. Whitfield to each of his staff, I have felt so much love!!!! They are amazing! They have remembered me and he even sent a text on the weekend asking about a prior surgery...I so appreciate how much time and compassion they have shown!

Breast Augmentation

I thought the staff and the doctor were very kind, professional, logical, trustworthy, thorough, and made me feel comfortable.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr Whitfield performed a total capsulectomy and was able to get all of my capsules out! My previous PS left my capsules in after I explanted over a year ago. I can’t say enough great thing about this surgeon! I highly recommend him to all the Facebook breast illness site! I will go back to him if I ever need his type of services again!

No longer dreading looking in the mirror in the morning. Because I trust Dr Whitfield and his staff.

Atmosphere, professionalism, passion of chosen expertise, super friendly staff, etc.....

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Whitfield and his staff have been incredibly nice, professional and a awsome group to work with. I had to reschedule my consultation and procure days a few time and I never felt that they were annoyed - they always tried to work with me. I’m really glad I chose this practice to remove my breast implants en bloc and highly recommend them to others. Thank you!

Breast Implant Removal

Very kind staff and doctor. Quick and communicative, very detailed in their communication. Very satisfied with the experience. Still deciding on when to schedule. Thank you!


The focus on what the patient desires and what is feasible. Honesty, helpfulness and making you feel good about wanting to make a change in your appearance.

Tummy Tuck

It was a little unorganized when in the appointment and after for scheduling. The receptionist was not knowledgable and seem to be frustrated.

Breast Reconstruction

Very knowledgeable and experienced. I felt comfortable discussing what I needed done.

Treatment / Procedure

The straight forwardness of the consultation was most appreciated.

Neck Lift

The doctor and staff were friendly and efficient.

Breast Lift

The doc took time to answer all of my questions was not rushed at all. Very friendly & engaged doc.

Treatment / Procedure

I think because I am not receiving a traditional plastic surgery procedure, my case was not very interesting. I received great feedback about this surgeon, however when he entered the room, he was totally disinterested, yawning, sitting with his hands folded.. just not open at all. I received info from him regarding the ability to actually perform any surgery, but he really did not want to be bothered. Although my procedure is not a tummy tuck, breast enlargement, rhinoplasty, etc.. it is Important to me. I am taking his advice before moving on, And I guess I need to find another Surgeon who can help me. I am just very disappointed.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

He listened to my concerns gave detailed explanations corrected my concerns and sent a personal card after the visit

Breast Reconstruction

Dr Whitfield was so relaxed, knowledgeable and reassuring that I left the consultation feeling 100% better about the procedure I was going to have. He directed me to his website where I could see photos of women who had undergone reconstruction. It relieved many of my fears to see these photos. I know I am in very capable hands. When I have called the office with questions, either his nurse or he would call me back promptly. I am very lucky to have him perform my surgery. He will take a very bad situation and make it better for me.

Neck Lift

Great experience and outcome
