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.

Robert Whitfield, MD, FACS Reviews (37)


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 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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

it worked. Sarah was very thorough and honest

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I was highly satisfied with everything, I only rated one thing as satisfied, rather than highly. I loved the Botox, Sara does a fabulous job and Dr. Whitfield was very honest answer professional. Overall I was very satisfied. Sara does a fabulous job with the botox injections.


Dr. Whitfield was extremely thorough and incredibly precise. He fixed the asymmetry in my lips. I love the natural look and I had absolutely no swelling or bruising. His technique is impeccable!


Dr. Whitfield and his staff were great!

Breast Implant Removal

i think the honesty and confidence that came behind Dr. W is what made me content about going on with my procedure.


Dr. Whitfield is straightforward with me about what he recommends. I trust his judgment and am comfortable with his qualifications and expertise. Much more comfortable than the implants!


As far as tattoo artist, he did great with what he had to work with. Don't believe the doctor has my best interest based on the results of my surgeries, as well as when I voiced my needs, those were dismissed. I was also misinformed of test results and later told something different.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

It was a great experience from the time I entered the door of the office. Very friendly, professional and a clean a pretty office.


The best thing is how real the reconstructed nipple looks! Dr. Robert Whitfield is awesome! I know this was a very minor procedure for him, but it meant the world to me! Dr Whitfield & staff are amazing! I have to have nipple reconstruction after a lumpectomy of a benign tumor claimed my left one. I had a previously bad experience with another surgeon's office in town (mostly their staff dragging their feet on getting my insurance verified, I believe due to the fact that wouldn't opt for the breast lift they were trying to upsell me on). Dr. Whitfield's staff got me in to see him very quickly and he was very compassionate about my situation. He understood that I needed to have the procedure done before the end of the year so my insurance would cover it at 100% because I'd already met my out of pocket deductible and ... I am out of work at this time. It was crucial for me, and he did everything he could to make that happen! Not only that, the surgery went wonderfully and I am so happy with the results! I don't think anyone will be able to tell that my left nipple is actually a reconstruction! It's amazing!! There was also very little discomfort in my recovery! If I every have to have any surgeries that require a plastic surgeon again, this is the only person I'm going to go to! He's a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon who truly wants his patient to be happy. And ... despite the fact he could be Brad Pitt's stunt double *grin* ... he seems to be an extremely humble and down-to-earth person. (By the way, the unfavorable experience I had was with Dr. [name] office, two thumbs down for them.)


The continued care afterwards. I felt empathy from Dr. Whitfield which to me is the basic need for a patient reaching out in my situation. He continued his Help even after hours after the procedure. To find a Doctor so well rounded was very comforting at this time. His staff were insightful and helpful. The surgery center he uses is by far the best I've ever seen. I have already recommended him to many women in need of his services online.


Dr was down to earth with expectations


Good care and very knowledgeable

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Doctor explains everything. They take you to the back as soon as you get there no waiting to be seen

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I've been seeing Dr. Whitfield since March 2013. It has always been a pleasant experience (in a very unpleasant medical situation).


Staff is approachable and friendly. Zero judgement!


My questions were answered about my procedure I felt confident about the response I received

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr.Whitfield gave me extensive knowledge in the service he was providing and personalized it to my needs. He had wonderful bedside manner and made me feel completely comfortable in his service and as a patient. The best Botox I have ever had and painless! No bruising, or uncomfortability. He asked questions and made me feel very at ease. I look forward to my breast augmentation and my next Botox injections! I will highly recommend him to everyone!!

Breast Reconstruction

All other surgeons I have consulted with just assumed that because I had a mini tummy tuck that I was not a candidate for Diep Flap. Dr. Whitield actually took the time to order a CT scan to make sure this was the case and thankfully, it wasn't. I was always told I had to have the Latisimes Flap and I waited years in pain and discomfort because I did not want to mutilate my body in that way and deal with all the side effects. I was so reassured when he told me Diep was the way to go and so grateful that I had found such professional and caring doctor who actually made me feel like I was going to be ok, especially after everything I had already gone through with breast cancer. I knew I was in good hands and what he was able to do with such a difficult case was truly amazing. He checked on me every day in the hospital when he did not have to. He even sent flowers from himself and his staff which was so nice and so thoughtful, especially since I am new to Texas and did not have much of a support system here.
