Dr. Whitfield is a highly experienced breast enhancement surgeon who performs breast augmentation and other cosmetic surgeries of the breast. He offers the full range of implant shapes and sizes in order to give his patients the bustline and contour they desire. Dr. Whitfield is also one of the few surgeons in the United States who perform the advanced DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) flap surgery, a form of breast reconstruction. This sophisticated procedure can provide women who have lost one or both breasts with aesthetically pleasing results. Unlike other reconstruction techniques, the DIEP flap method uses abdominal skin and tissue, but not muscle, to form the new breast. In addition, the DIEP flap procedure allows many women who are not good candidates for other reconstruction procedures to achieve their dreams of having breast reconstruction.
