Post MWL Lower Body Lift, Spiral Medial Thigh Lift and Breast Lift with Augmentation - San Antonio, TX
Dr Fisher is both kind and competent. He is dedicated to researching and providing post massive weight loss patients with the best possible outcomes. I trust his expertise and opinions and I am very confident in his abilities to help me obtain the best results within my own limitations.

This is my second round of surgeries with Dr. Fisher. I knew he was my surgeon almost from our first consult, and with a 200+ weight loss, I needed a lot of work and a VERY good surgeon! I have always been impressed with his knowledge, skills, honesty, genuineness, and caring. I have always felt so very safe with him, knowing that his complication rates are low, that he would be a perfect “balance” of aggressiveness for the desired result, but never with undue risk, and that he would only do a procedure where the result was worth the risk, investment, and subsequent scar. Ohhh….and he is a spectacularly gifted surgeon and just really a great guy with whom to go through this journey. My thighs were the most troublesome of all the corrections I needed. My thighs were a mess - bottom 10% even in the MWL category - very large (even calves and ankles) with a LOT of redundant skin and absolutely no shape. Dr. Fisher very smartly did a first stage of liposuction on my legs followed by second stage the most extensive thigh lift I have seen on this site (or any other). Given my starter legs? I have the BEST result I have ever seen on a thigh lift! (Honestly I am not bragging - it really is…go check out my review pictures). If you are looking for a “mommy makeover” - by all means - look locally…but if you are MWL (massive weight loss) with >80 lbs lost you **may** have to travel to find a surgeon that can effectively treat you. I am from Atlanta, but I considered surgeons nationwide (and one in MX) and then chose Dr. Fisher. He is among a handful of the elite MWL surgeons in the country (really I consider him THE BEST but for review purposes, we can go a bit more modest). I have been on this site and many other surgery sites for greater than a year, I can honestly say I chose well and would not have wanted any other surgeon. The other reason to choose this doctor for MWL plastics is that he is “all about” giving women smooth feminine natural attractive curves - not just about the removal of redundant skin which often leaves women with flattened hips and buttocks and/or odd shapes. He is truly an artist in this arena and very gifted. Please do check my reviews for user taken Before/After pictures. Given my start point, what Dr. Fisher was able to transform my body into is really amazing.

Dr. Fisher is an excellent physician. He is compassionate but direct and to the point. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon who is interested in you as a patient and not just selling you something.

Dr. Fisher is an excellent physician. I felt well advised going into surgery and his staff has been outstanding. He is very matter of fact and direct which I appreciate in a doctor.

I find his bedside manner very comforting and reassuring. He has some very good reviews and patient comments. He was very patient in explaining what he was doing during the mark up day. Taking the time to tell both Annie and I what to expect and when to get things changed and what's happening next. Very pleased so far at the outcome. 1-1-14: My girls are SO much smaller and look great! I smile every time I see myself in the mirror. THANKS DOC!!!

I first consulted with Dr. Fisher after I had posted a question to Real Self and he had the most thoughtful and specific answer to my question. So many docs look like they do some copy/paste from some previous answer! To tell the truth, I was not 100% serious in considering him until after that initial conversation. After I got off the phone I ran in and told my hubby, I think I may have found my guy! Every interaction since then has only gone to reaffirm that decision as he is responsive and thoughtful and never fails to impress me in his knowledge, honestly, and attentiveness. I could gush on for a while really, but here is what happened: Dr. Fisher did my LBL, extended brachio, and whole leg lipo on December 27th. I will be undergoing a thigh lift,BL/BA, and bletheroplasty with him most likely late April or early May. I interviewed three surgeons prior to him - one local, one in MX, and one in California. I agonized over the decision until I consulted with Dr. Fisher. It was such a good fit from day 1. He is a competent plastic surgeon in all areas it seems, but he most definitely a specialist in post massive weight loss. This was a very important “start point” in the plastic surgeon as I have yards of extra skin to deal with after a 200 lb weight loss. At this point, the process is not only about excision of excess skin, but really reconstructing a body to what it may have looked like in absence of the weight gain and loss. I do believe the selection of your surgeon for such extensive procedures is the most important one. Dr. Fisher patiently answered my 100+ questions on plastics and my results intelligently, thoughtfully, and absolutely egolessly as he allowed me to discuss with him his results and the results of other surgeons. He is well versed in latest and many techniques. He has an absolutely impeccable bedside and every bit as invested in my results as I am. He was very responsive to my emails and inquiries during the pre-surgical process. He put forth a treatment plan tailored to MY body’s individual needs and my desired outcomes. One of these desired outcomes is to end up with a “feminine” curvy figure (which I started with) rather than the flattening of the hips and buttocks you see with so many LBL. He does what (I think) is a signature version of the Buttock Auto Augmentation and hip auto-augmentation using your own attached fat (the very fat many surgeons discard during the LBL procedure) - this is included in the price of his LBL! (two other quotes I had did not include this). He does really great work. He is invested in his patinet's outcomes - to this point, he actually spent 13 hours during my first surgery when the estimate was 8 hours - all to ensure I would have really good results (the thigh and lower leg lipo are actually a "staging" for the thigh lift - and i had monster legs to deal with). This spoke volumes to me and as they say, actions speak the loudest. His prices are very competitive. Please do PM me if you want additional information on my journey and experience with him (you can also read some of this in my extended body lift review). Also, do request a complimentary RS consult with him and see if this is a great of “fit” for you as he was for me!
