An Interview With Dr. Tittle

I grew up in Lufkin, Texas, a small town in East Texas where everyone knew everyone.

I went to medical school at UT Southwestern, followed by a one-year rotating internship at Baylor University Medical Center. I then did five years of general surgery at Parkland Hospital in the UT Southwestern Hospital System, followed by a three-year plastic surgery fellowship at UT Southwestern Hospitals and Parkland Hospital.

I specialize in breast implant revision surgery. I sometimes see patients who have had recurrent capsular contracture four to five times. I use Strattice extensively to help prevent the recurrence of capsular contracture. My practice also does an extensive amount of body contouring including body lifts, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and breast enhancement.

The philosophy at my practice is “Treat your patients like they were family.”

I became a plastic surgeon because every day is different. The procedures that we do require an artistic aspect.

One of the things I like most about being a plastic surgeon is the opportunity to make patients feel better about themselves and happy.

To become a successful surgeon and physician, I employed perseverance and lots of hard work.

In my leisure time, I love spending time with my wife, kids, and grandkids. Grandkids are the best. You never have to tell them no, and you can spoil them without consequences. I also love reading. Reading expands your mind in a way that nothing else will. Also, one of my favorite things to do is travel with my wife. We have traveled the world over and had an incredible time doing it.

The epiphany that led me to become a plastic surgeon was when I was a fourth-year surgery resident at Parkland; I had to do a rotation at Baylor Hospital in Plastic Surgery. The second day I was there, the residents were doing a breast augmentation. They sat the patient up to check for symmetry and asked me what I thought. I said, “I think I want to do this instead of doing trauma surgery. I was already considering being a thoracic surgeon, and I changed my mind and became a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. 

I am very lucky that I did not have any significant setbacks or obstacles while pursuing my goals. My parents were schoolteachers and always encouraged me to learn. When I was 10 years old, I went to the doctor with my mom and saw her blood being drawn for lab work. It completely hypnotized me, and I knew from that moment forward that I wanted to go into medicine.

There are three words that describe me as a surgeon: focus, achieve, and repeat.

Fritz Barton, Steve Byrd, John Tebbets, and Sam Hamra are my mentors in plastic surgery. They are some of the best plastic surgeons who have ever practiced, and I was extremely lucky to have been taught by them.

My journey as a plastic surgeon has made me more detail-oriented and focused.

Patients choose me as their plastic surgeon because I listen to them. They come to see me because I have 35 years of experience and they want me to use thatskill and experience to help them achieve their goals. Occasionally, I will tell them they do not need a procedure, or they need a lesser procedure, and patients always appreciate honesty.
