About Robert Whitfield MD, FACS

Over the years, many patients have come to Dr. Whitfield with complaints of discomfort in their breasts, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmune issues and other symptoms commonly associated with Breast Implant Illness (BII).

“There is a subset of patients with breast implants who feel like their implants are making them sick. And because of their physical exam, which is essentially normal, most of their complaints have been brushed aside.”
Meet Dr. Robert Whitfield, MD or as we like to call him Dr. Rob. Dr. Rob is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implant removal surgery, also known as explant surgery. He is known for his exceptional skill in performing complex procedures to remove breast implants and restore a natural-looking appearance to his patients. 

Dr. Rob graduated from The University of Texas at Austin and then went on to study medicine at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He completed his residencies in general surgery and plastic surgery at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where he worked with some of the leading experts in the field of plastic surgery. Dr. Rob is committed to staying at the forefront of his field and regularly attends conferences and courses to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and technologies in plastic surgery. 

In addition to his work as an explant surgeon, Dr. Rob is a sought-after provider for his Holistic Accelerated Recovery Program (HARP) which he created to help his patients reduce systemic inflammation to prepare and recover from all surgical procedures. 

Outside of his work, Dr. Rob enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, hiking, and reading non-fiction books.
