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 Reviews (122)

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


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.


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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Whitfield and his staff are amazing and always make me feel comfortable. [Single best thing is...] The results!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Whitfield was very professional and understandable about the procedures I am interested in. I would highly recommend him to others. I'm looking forward in seeing him for procedures.

Breast Implant Removal

Highly competent, friendly surgeon. Dr. Whitfield explained the procedure thoroughly. Inspires my trust in him because of his expertise and calming, reassuring bedside manner.


The surgeon and staff were very explicit about procedure answered any doubt I had and the atmosphere was comfortable and most important it was clean and very organized.


I loved how communicative and accessible everyone was, especially the doctor. Also, the care shown to me during the procedure went a long way to allay any anxiety I may have been feeling. It speaks volumes when all of the staff are familiar with you and your procedure. The best was the doctor’s own knowledge of what he planned to do.

Inmode Forma™

This if the first time I am trying to regain some of the health back in my face. I am not seeing the results immediately. I may have to ask for two more sessions. Their is two points of view I have research so far, the 6 sessions may refer to younger people and 8 sessions maybe needed for older persons with slower metabolism. It may take two more sessions to get the full results.

Injectable Fillers

I really like the attention to detail and Dr. Whitfield's inclination to only do a little bit at a time. I did develop some lumps in my lips. While it seemed unlikely that those lumps were filler, at this point i'm pretty sure they are filler. It's odd because the lumps developed at a different site than where I was injected.

Fractora Skin Resurfacing

Dr & staff did a great job of listening to my needs & explaining procedure.

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!
