5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

I had a good experience with lip fillers from dr. Whitfeild - Austin, TX

Dr. Whitfield is an amazing doctor and does a great job with his work. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I have recommended him to muiltiple people. He definitely is someone you want to see if you want a good job done!

Fillers - Austin, TX

I asked Dr. Whitfield what fillers he would recommend to make my upper lip fuller and to smooth some of the lines above. I also wanted more fullness in my cheeks. I'm 59 years old and felt my face had begun to look too thin. He used Restylane Silk and Lyft and I'm very please with the results. Dr. Whitfield is very personable and made me feel comfortable throughout the procedure.

Explant Surgery...So Glad I Did It!

I am so glad that I was referred to Dr. Whitfield, he is the best! A lot of Doctors don't believe in breast implant illness and not to say that he does. But he really listened and heard my concerns. I feel like that's important and it's what I needed. Any questions I had, he was more than happy to answer them, even if I asked them a hundred times. He assured me everything would be fine, and it was. I not only had my implants removed, but I also had a lift. I was told that it's probably not best to have bot procedures done at the same time, but we did. And he was great at being able to gauge and sculpt me soon to be itty bitties. The surgery center was very clean and welcoming, and so was the staff. They were friendly, helpful and took great care of not only me, but my mom who flew into town to be with me during the surgery. After care was just as great as during. I had some problems because the implants were actually too big for my body type. But Dr. Whitfield saw me through that also. Over all I am very happy, and would recommend that whatever your needs are The Breast and Body Center and Dr. Whitfield will take care of you.

I love my results - Breast Augmentation - Austin, TX

Dr Whitfield again is the most professional plastic surgeon I have encountered. Ive had consultations with others but hes the one I chose. Not only because of how professional but he was very informative, and tells me realistic expectations.

52-year-old Mother of 3, DIEP Flap Reconstruction--SO Happy with the Results! - Austin, TX

I couldn't be happier with my DIEP results or with my choice of surgeons. I knew from my first appointment that I had made the right choice. Dr. Whitfield clearly explained both the DIEP and implants procedures in terms my husband and I could understand. I've been his patient for about nine months and have learned a few things: he cares passionately about his patients and wants us to have the best possible outcome. He is a perfectionist and an artist. He is warm, personable, and fun…there have been times I’ve had to remind myself that I was in his office because I had cancer…what a gift he gives to his patients to be able to help them forget that for even a few minutes! Dr. Whitfield can generally control what happens in the OR but can’t control how a patient’s body will respond or how a patient behaves during recovery. He is human; he gets understandably frustrated when things don’t go as planned or when a patient doesn’t follow his advice but his bedside manner is exemplary. He is amazingly gifted and my reconstructed body is evidence of that! One of the many blessings that have come from my cancer journey has been the privilege of getting to know him. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Whitfield and his excellent, compassionate staff and have and will continue to recommend him to anyone facing breast cancer reconstruction.

Explant and DIEP Flap Reconstruction - Austin, TX

I went to Dr. Whitfield to get implants that were causing issues, removed, & have the DIEP flap reconstruction. I have been so impressed with him and his staff. While it's been a BIG surgery and recovery, I'm so happy with the results....he's a very skilled surgeon. I highly recommend him!

DIEP Flap Reconstruction After Double Mastectomy - Austin, TX

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August, 2013... 31 Jul 2014 10 days post I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August, 2013. Shortly after being diagnosed, my world turned into a series of doctors appointments. I had a bilateral mastectomy in September, 2013, followed by 6 rounds of chemotherapy, and 33 treatments of radiation. After this, the biggest decision I had facing me was whether to undergo plastic surgery or not. Unaware of how to even go about choosing a plastic surgeon, I was referred to Dr. Whitfield via my breast surgeon. I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Whitfield, so much so that I did not feel the need to get a second opinion. His staff were friendly, and efficient. The wait times were minimal, and plenty of reminders were given for appointment times (which is a huge plus considering the effects of "chemo brain" and many other appointments that come with the diagnosis!) Dr. Whitfield recommended a DIEP flap for reconstruction. Initially, this scared the life out of me. I was apprehensive, and wanted to learn more about it before committing to the procedure. Dr. Whitfield was extremely patient with me during this time, and allowed me all the time I needed to make a decision. He was helpful and very informative. I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I am now 10 days out of surgery, and could not be happier. My initial hesitations were further nullified upon hearing the nurses at St. David's say that his patients typically recover very well, and are easy to deal with! He is very highly regarded by them all! Hearing this was very reassuring knowing I had the following few weeks of recovery ahead of me. Thank you Dr. Whitfield for the time and patience you gave me. I look and feel great again!

68 Year Old, Tested Positive for Cancer Gene, Decided to Do Before Cancer Diagnosis - Austin, TX

Dr. Whitfield, what can I say, a professional, always willing to explain my procedure, answer all questions, call me at home, took his time while I was in hospital to make sure I understood what he had done and what I could expect in my recovery. Made sure family members understood every thing. His entire office staff have been wonderful, taking their time to call or e-mail me about any changes made to my appointment time. And everyone made me feel like I was his only patient, took very good care of me.

Dr. Whitfield Should Be Your FIRST Choice As a Surgeon! Be Very Wise in Your Choice of a Doctor! Austin, TX

Dr. Whitfield in short summary was very educated, calm, professional, diagnostically accurate and a very skilled surgeon. He was very compassionate, listened well, explained well and overall was there for me during every step, question, etc. He was at my bedside(with great bedside manners) before surgery, upon awakening and during each follow up visit. Almost all of my office visits were with him seeing me, not someone else. He was very attentive to details, outcome and aftercare of my multiple surgeries for breast cancer reconstruction. He has always followed me up with personal phone calls to see how I was doing...even when I was back home in Kansas City. I will only choose Dr. Whitfield for any future needs if they arise. He can be trusted with your surgical needs.
