About Dr. Whitaker
Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker MD says being a plastic surgeon is a “calling”, not a choice. She likes being a plastic surgeon because she enjoys making a difference with people in a direct, personal way. Dr. Whitaker is reminded why she is a plastic surgeon every time she sees her patient’s new self confidence, their new outlook on life and the pride they have in their appearance. Elizabeth also finds facial plastic surgery to be the ultimate fusion of artistry and technical skill. She feels gratified to use her training and experience to make that kind of positive difference in a person’s life.
