Provider Bio

Dr. Winfield Hartley is a native of Atlanta Georgia. His earliest introduction to plastic surgery was through his uncle, Dr. John Hartley, former president of the Southeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons. When he was fifteen years old, he spent a summer in the operating room observing his Uncle’s procedures. He has been dedicated to the specialty ever since. Dr. Hartley attended the University of Virginia for his undergraduate degree in psychology, and obtained his medical degree from Emory University in Atlanta.

He completed his general surgery training (1997-2000) and plastic surgery training (2000-2002) at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, one of the premier programs in the United States. Dr. Hartley went on to pursue additional fellowship training in Aesthetic Surgery in Melbourne Australia (2002) under Dr. Bryan Mendelson. Dr. Mendelson is highly regarded worldwide, as a leader and pioneer in facial rejuvenation surgery. Dr. Hartley completed a second fellowship in Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery (2003) in Nashville, TN, under Dr. Patrick Maxwell. During his time there, he co-authored the Breast Augmentation chapter for the definitive plastic surgery textbook.

His interests are in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. He has a special focus on body contouring, liposuction, abdominoplasty and breast surgery (breast augmentation, reduction, and reconstruction). He employs several new face-lifting techniques designed to minimize scarring and shorten recovery.

Dr. Hartley is Board Certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He stays on the forefront of his specialty by attending conferences, seminars, and national meetings throughout each year. He has published articles in several major journals, and presented research at national meetings. “My wife Joy and I moved to Colorado in order to be part of a culture whose focus is on healthy outdoor living. I believe that people want to look as young as they feel. My philosophy centers on providing my patients with a more attractive and healthy appearance by enhancing their own natural attributes. In this way, patients feel better about themselves and the way they look. I find this true for both aesthetic and reconstructive patients.”

Dr. Hartley enhances his local experience in Boulder by spending one week each year on a medical mission trip to an underdeveloped country. There he has the opportunity to restore both form and function to children born with congenital anomalies such as cleft lips and palates.
