Dr. Whitaker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Whitaker "Having performed thousands of facial procedures including over 4000 facelifts alone, Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker has become known as the “queen of faces.” She is one of the most experienced Facial Plastic Surgeons, not just in Atlanta, but the entire country. Dr. Elizabeth partners with her patients in creating a plan to enhance their appearance while emphasizing a natural result. She understands that the ideal outcome is looking “your personal best” not like a “different person”. Dr. Whitaker’s journey began in North Carolina where she was born and raised. She was selected to attend the prestigious North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics at the age of sixteen. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Davidson College, majoring in Biology, where she was also elected Phi Beta Kappa. Dr. Whitaker was then selected to attend the world renowned Duke University School of Medicine, receiving her Doctorate of Medicine. She was subsequently selected for residency training at Emory University, right here in Atlanta, in the very competitive field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic Surgery. After completing her residency, Dr. Whitaker elected an additional year of advanced fellowship training focused exclusively on cosmetic surgery of the face at Tulane University in New Orleans with Dr. Calvin Johnson, one of the world’s premier Facial Plastic Surgeons. These exclusive and competitive fellowships are offered to only 38 candidates internationally each year, and only a handful of surgeons in Atlanta have this specialized training. Dr. Whitaker is Double Board Certified and a Fellow of both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. She has also been elected a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Whitaker’s interest in education also extended to teaching others in the field of Facial Plastic Surgery. This was exemplified by her appointment as Chief of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Georgia Regents University where she taught residents how to perform facial plastic procedures, and where she remains a Clinical Assistant Professor. She has also served as Chief of her surgical division at Kennestone Hospital. She has served both as a guest examiner and on the exam development committee for the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, which determines the qualifications of candidates for board certification in Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr. Whitaker is a member of several national societies, has authored both articles and book chapters in the field of Facial Plastic Surgery, serves on the board of her local medical society, and is active in her community. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you look your personal best!

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Whitaker "Atlanta Face and Body Center was created with every aspect of your comfort, convenience, and privacy in mind. We are located within the perimeter, minutes off of I-75 and I-285 to ensure maximum access for all our metro Atlanta patients. Our location also allows our patients driving from surrounding states or flying in for their procedure ready access to our center.  For patients traveling from other cities, we have special rates at local hotels as close as a block away, many with shuttle service, and can arrange your stay prior and after your procedure.

We selected our location not only for its convenience, but for amenities.  Galleria 75 is a one story office complex with multiple medical services and ample free parking which includes designated spots for our patients.  This means you can enter directly into our suite…no parking garages or lobbies to maneuver. There are multiple hotels and restaurants in the surrounding area, and the Cobb Energy Center and Cumberland mall are just minutes away.

Inside our suite, you will find we have made your comfort our priority. With inviting décor, spacious consultation rooms, and large in-office surgery center, we accommodate all your aesthetic needs at one location. A separate waiting room for post-procedure patients maximizes your privacy with direct exit from the suite to your vehicle. We strive not only to be state of the art, but your home for aesthetic care. "

I went to Dr Elizabeth Whitaker for Sculpture treatment in several areas. Initial treatment showed very little results but Dr Whitaker graciously agreed to retreat those areas without any additional cost to me. After the second treatment, results were much more pronounced and I was satisfied.

Dr Whitaker was recommended to me by a friend. After my consultation I knew why my friend spoke so highly of her. All my questions or concerns were addressed and fully answered. There was no pressure to do more than what I was asking for. Results were amazing!
