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 Implant Removal

The entire staff was/is very accommodating. I never felt like I could not ask questions and I never felt as though the answers I received were condescending. Dr. Whitfield and his nursing staff listened to my concerns diligently and responded with care.

Juvéderm® XC

Love Dr. Whitfield & staff... Can't wait till they get in their new place. Great results

Injectable Fillers

I was welcomed once I entered the office with a Hello and big smile.

Breast Implant Removal

The staff was friendly & professional. The consultation was not rushed & the doctor seemed genuine. I left feeling as though all my questions had been thoroughly answered.

Fractora Skin Resurfacing

The provider is a very caring and knowledgeable doctor and the staff is amazing. The situation has to do with the accumulation of fluids below the chin that have never subsided after the neck and chin surgery. I'm not sure what would be the proper treatment for it. It has been a year and a half since the surgery.

Treatment / Procedure

This doctor was very polite and took the time to explain every detail that was going to be done.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Whitfield is very straightforward he has a way of explaining things that made it simple to understand everything about my procedure. He is obviously passionate about his work and I felt as if I was his number one priority. His office staff and nurses are among the best I’ve encountered. I had breast cancer now I don’t and because of Dr. Whitfield I know I’ll look the best version of myself!

Treatment / Procedure

Great results. Caring doctor.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Whitfield answered all of my questions thoroughly prior to surgery and eased my worries. My results have been exceptional. Dr. Whitfield was very responsive after surgery with any questions or concerns I had, which I really appreciated.

Breast Reconstruction

Very professional and made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing and the results were beyond my expectations. I feel young again. The cancer may have taken my breasts but Dr. Whitfield gave me better ones.

Juvéderm® XC

Great experience

Liposuction

The entire experience from start to finish was nothing less than highly professional and the results exceeded my expectations. The staff and Dr. Whitfield were extremely professional and sensitive to my needs and expectations before, during and after my procedure. Without a doubt I would recommend to friends and family and if I have any procedures in the future I will only have Dr. Whitfield and his staff to do the procedure. Dr. Whitfield and staff being specific as to what to expect and during the procedure being very kind and professional.

Reconstructive Surgery

I felt like the doctor and his staff were very genuine and their concern for me and always responded quickly to any concerns I had. That's just part of the reason.

Breast Lift

Dr. Whitfield and all of his staff were phenomenal. Very personable and caring, excellent to deal with. My results exceeded anything I’d hoped for. Minimal scarring, my boobs look great! I literally could not be more happy with the procedure and the care provided.

Breast Reconstruction

The surgeon was very professional and easy to talk to. My body is different but I love it

Tummy Tuck

I felt that Dr. Whitfield was very attentive and caring along with being very knowledgeable about my situation. I feel like a woman should feel.

FaceTite

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Whitfield takes his time to explain everything in detail and also is a perfectionist with using fillers as he doesn't want his patients to leave the office looking odd as I have seen with many women in our community.
