5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Dr Harper is the BEST!

My saline implants were 20 years old. I felt it was perfect timing to exchange them while I underwent a hysterectomy. When I met with Dr. Harper I was not only impressed with his training and professionalism but his ability to connect and make one feel at ease. His awesome staff coordinated the surgeries so I could have the implant exchange immediately following my hysterectomy. He also...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Breast Cancer Diagnosed at Age 46

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 4, 2017. As a seasoned PA, I was now thrust into the role of being a patient. I was referred to Dr. Harper by my breast surgeon. He put my fears instantly at ease as he described the process of immediate reconstruction following mastectomy. It is comforting as a patient to go into this type of surgery with complete confidence in your surgeons. I...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Amazing Results

I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Harper. I have struggled with my weight since I was 21. After WLS and exercise - my body was still in bad shape. I decided to have a tummy tuck, lipo and a breast lift. I met with several other surgeons prior to Dr. Harper and never felt a comfort level. With Dr. Harper, the comfort level I needed was immediate. His bedside manner is by far...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Incredible Direct-to-Implant Reconstruction Results

Incredibly happy with my experience and results! Dr. Harper performed a full reconstruction after a double mastectomy due to brca1 gene. He was able to do a direct-to-implant reconstruction as I had previously had implants from an augmentation done several years before the mastectomy. I had zero complications going direct-to-implant, and the healing process was incredibly quick and easy. I...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Better results than I ever imagined!

Unbelievably fantastic results from my upper and lower eyelid, re-augmentation with full breast lift and full tummy tuck surgery on April 18th - yes, I did all of that at once! Never had any pain from the surgeries, which was a huge concern. Scar lines are practically non existent on the eyes and my "body" scars are fading very quickly (they were very thin & symmetrical to begin with) and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

Simply amazing! - Charlotte, NC

From the moment I spoke with him on the phone I knew he was the one I had been looking for to help me. I had breast cancer 13 years ago and the radiation I received had shrunk my breast and deformed it. I saw a surgeon out west who put an implant into the radiated tissue and it further deformed my breast. It was less than half the size of my normal breast. I was feeling so badly about my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Garrett Harper excellent plastic surgeon - Charlotte, NC

I had breast cancer diagnosed after seeing Dr. Harper for breast reduction. Went for mammogram part of his Pre-op testing and dx with cancer. He stayed with me from first phase of surgery for partial mastectomy. He reconstructed my breasts to perfection in my opinion. I plan on seeing him for abdominalplasty due to large weight loss. As an Operating Room seasoned nurse manager he is one of the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had the experience I would exactly hope for!

Great experience with Dr. Harper and his staff for a breast augmentation. They were extremely friendly and very informative. I was on the fence about doing it so they took their time and listened to all of my questions. Extremely helpful in making my decision and making me feel calm.
