Welcome to the holistic and scientific podcast with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Whitfield, Austin's natural choice for plastic surgery and the expert in smart laser and energy treatments.
Dr. Robert Whitfield (00:21):
We're doing this podcast to increase our visibility awareness of our message, right? Holistic in nature scientific approach. You can have a non-invasive treatment to tighten up your cheek or get rid of your double chin. You can have a smart tummy tuck instead of a, a tummy tuck scar. I feel like if we can do things naturally and give you the best appearance, that's important, it goes along well with what I care and feel strongly about with your nutrition and air quality and water, we drink so that we have the best results afterwards. And these things coupled with our approach for both noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments, gives the full spectrum that I can offer somebody that most people don't really know exists. And there's a lot of technology. Now, the technology of bipolar radio frequency, specifically what I leverage in my office, as well as artificial intelligence, the technology that's available now in cosmetic medicine and, and surgeries.
Dr. Robert Whitfield (01:22):
I mean, it's pretty amazing. I have things you can wear like a pair of Bose headphones on your face, and actually remodel your jawline. I can get rid of your double chin. If you wanna get rid of stretch marks or unevenness of your thigh or knee or abdomen instead of a tummy tuck, I can do that for you. And I can offer mainly invasive treatments to give you skin tightening results without surgery. And then of course we can provide surgery. Many things we do now are adapted to our lifestyles. I rarely do as much surgery to surgery centers. I used to, I do my facelifts under local in the office. I do many of our cases under local in the office to provide patients with logistical challenges or concerns about help, just a way to get this done for them so they can improve and, uh, area that may bother them for a long period of time.
Dr. Robert Whitfield (02:11):
And they never had an option to take care of. And now they do, we can do it for 'em under local in the office or noninvasively in the office and, and get a result for them and teach them more about how to care for themselves and maintain that result over time. That's probably, when you think about it, the more rewarding aspect of, of what I do, if we can make that adaptation for them, and then they'll do better overall, each patient's a little bit different, you know, they have a different desire, different need, a different experience. What plan can I put together for you to give you the best outcome? Many patients say that I'm a good listener. I found over time. One of the most important things is basically just sit back and try to understand exactly what the underlying issues are for each client and listen as closely as possible, just so that you don't miss something subtle.
Dr. Robert Whitfield (03:04):
That may be a bigger component than they, they wanna let on. I'm gonna educate you on how to eat better so that your recovery process is smoother. So that you're happier. You get a better result. We want things to be obviously naturally beautiful. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, where nobody actually grows up. I started out wanting to be a heart surgeon, volunteered in college and cardiac ICUs and watched and learned from cardiac surgeons. So I started out that was my goal through a couple different things that happened in, uh, research experience. I adapted that into microvascular surgery, which led me to reconstructive plastic surgery. And I became assistant professor plastic surgery and taught at a university, finished up at his associate, and then ultimately joined the private practice here in Austin to do microvascular brush reconstruction. And after about five years started my own solo practice. So that journey from Las Vegas to Indianapolis, to Milwaukee, to Austin, has a lot packed into it. The aesthetic experience between my mentor Williams, zzibo in Las Vegas, it's all coupled together with my interest and kind of obsession with technology, delivering results that used to only be surgical to get us to this point where I now can offer noninvasive treatments.
