My journey with Dr. Whitfield began 2 almost 3 years ago. I am 42 years old and had my first breast augmentation at 19 years old. The first 2 breast augmentation's I had were the 2 that started my, "Chi-Chi Journey From Hades " When I sought out a surgeon to attempt to help me achieve the breasts I had in high school, I stumbled upon Dr Whitfield's Website and Thank's to Jesus and my impeccable timing I am UNBELIEVABLY thankful that I did! Dr Whitfield was dealt a serious set of breast that had seen their better days. The truth is, I knew my breast had been damaged badly from the 1st 2 surgeries, but I didn't know the FULL extent of the damaged and the miracle I was asking of Dr. Whitfield. Dr. Whitfield and his staff are beyond an amazing team but the TRULY CARE ABOUT THE WHOLE PERSON! Dr. Whitfield is methodical to watch as the consultation process begins and his brain immediately begins to involve and include you in your treatment from start to finish. Dr. Whitfield is an unbelievab

Thank you Dr. Whitfield for saving my life! My experience as a patient with Dr. Whitfield has been spectacular! Going to a safe and protected environment during Covid 19 was very important to me , an older 60+woman. Everything about his office procedures for Covid 19 protocol has been outstanding! He and his staff have been very kind concerning my health issues, my surgery, and my healing. He explained my medical issues very thoroughly in a professional and kind manner at my consultation. I had been sick for so long and was so grateful to have him recommended to me by a fellow sufferer of Breast Implant Illness. From consultation, to setting up surgery, to the explant surgical procedure performed at West lake Hills Surgical center and their staff to post op healing has been a great experience! Being able to contact his office and have my questions answered immediately gave me comfort. He is the best.

I highly recommend Dr. Whitfield. He and his staff were extremely caring and responsive. They were available after hours through their messaging application which helped before and after my procedure. Dr. Whitfield was 100% honest especially when setting expectations for pain and recovery. I was nervous about the pain with the explant but a pain medication was used during the procedure and I felt little pain afterwards. I live pretty far from the office so I was able to do a post op video call which was convenient. I love the technoloy they use!

I really don't like leaving negative reviews, but I feel it is my ethical obligation to let people know my experience with this doctor. I went to Dr. Whitfield based on a recommendation and regret that I did not consult with more doctors or hold out for my number one choice. Dr. Whitfield performed liposuction with skin tightening on a small area on my body. Months later my results were not at all what I expected or told to expect. Even after receiving multiple laser treatments promising to tighten my skin and even out the lumps caused by the liposuction, I am still extremely unsatisfied. I was told that it would improve, but it hasn't. Over a year later, I have lumps, no tightening, and scars from the treatments. Not happy with my results and not happy with how I was treated by the doctor.

If you are looking for a compassionate, skilled surgeon along with an A+ office/hospital staff, I encourage you to set up a consultation with Dr. Whitfield. He helped my teenage daughter through a difficult period of time and has tremendously changed her life. The entire process from start to finish was such a positive experience. Dr. Whitfield encouraged all questions and concerns and just made the journey a very comfortable one for my teenage daughter. In every respect, I highly recommend Dr. Whitfield and his team.

I was first of all greeted by a very nice front desk receptionist. I believe that Dr. Whitfield did a great job. He was thorough in his explanation of my surgery and made sure I had the medications needed for recovery and his staff ensured follow up visits. Very professional and grateful for his expertise.

Had deep itch in my left breast for about the last year, enough to be concerned. I got implants 11 years ago, under the muscle, silicone. Decided to seek a doctor to remove the implants. Dr. Whitfield had good reviews online so I consulted with him. He listened to my concerns and did not try to talk me out of explant or tell me that the itch wasn't caused by the implants. I scheduled that day to have them removed. I am now 2-1/2 weeks post op and feeling great. Dr. Whitfield is very skilled.

Dr. Whitfield has been my plastic surgeon during my reconstruction surgeries. He has gone above and beyond what any other doctor has done for me through my reconstruction journey. He is always available if I have a question and explains everything in a way me and my family can understand.

Dr. Whitfield is an urban legend, that is until you actually see that unlike unicorns, leprechauns, etc... he does exist! Dr. Whitfield is a perfect melody of listening, honesty, empathy, calmness and an excellent bedside manner.
