5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Harper rocks!

Dr. Harper is a very personable and competent surgeon. He is very down to earth and his team is wonderful. They all made me feel so comfortable when I came in to replace my implants. I had old saline implants that were placed too low, and I was replacing them with silicone. Dr. Harper knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable. He explained all my options and then explained how things would...

Award winning experience with a personal touch

I had consultations with 3 different Plastic surgeons. From the moment I met Dr. Harper I felt the "I GOT YOU" feeling.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Incredible results with very little down time!!

I choose Dr. Harper after going to three other consults. I just knew within seconds of speaking with him, that he was the best choice, to take on my need for a mommy makeover. I had lots of skin in my abdominal area, and my breast where sagging from breastfeeding. At forty years of age, I was in need of an abdominoplasty and mastopexy. I cannot thank him enough for the quality of care,...

I went in for a consolation and decided that day that Dr. Harper is who I wanted to perform my surgery. He is courtesy and caring and answered all my silly questions. Within 4 weeks I had my surgery and am now 3 months post op and have never been happier with my results. I no longer have back pain and my girls have never looked better. I would highly recommend Dr. Harper and his staff to...

I originally wanted to go overseas to get the procedure done because it was cheaper. Until I met Dr. Harper, he made me feel fully prepared and comfortable at all times. Everything about this experience was positive. All of my questions were answered and I was never anxious about the procedure. The procedure itself was successful and provided the results I wanted.
