PROCEDURE DATE December 1st 2014

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Almost 3 months PO. Pics!

I had several consultations for a mommy makeover in Austin. Just my consultation with Dr. Kerr and his staff was the most professional and thorough out of all of them. Dr. Kerr really listens and takes the time to explain the procedures like none of the other doctors did. I have my surgery date in three weeks and I am so excited! Update! Surgery was a success and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results! Dr. Kerr is a magician!

22 Year Old, Slim Athletic No Boobs, 5'9"

I'm went in for a consultation with synergy plastic surgery based on all the reviews and was fitted with a 500cc silicone. I'm not sure if that's large enough given the pictures on my wish list. But at the same time the pics I've seen of people on here with 500cc seem big! But again...idk if I have enough breast tissue to cover that much??? My preop is on Monday so I'm definitely going to be...

I Am IN LOVE with my Results! I Have Saline Implants! 425 Cc, High Profile! :D - Round Rock, TX

I have to say that Dr. Kerr is one of the best doctors I know, he is very kind and knows exactly what he is doing! I would and do recommend him to anyone who wants a breast augmentation, or anything else done! He is very polite and true gentlemen. His work is excellent!

5'3, 108 lbs, 28yrs old, 385cc Natrelle Inspira

I have wanted boobs for as long as I can remember. I finally realized sometime in high school that they were not going to come naturally. I have always been pretty petite. I breastfed both of my children. I'm mainly just looking to add volume. I'm currently a 32a. I'm hoping to be as proportionate as possible. My body measurements are 29-(25/26)-(33/34). I have decided to complete my surgery...

450cc Silicone Under the Muscle - Austin, TX

Yelp, Google, YP, and Realself (5 stars each). After multiple consultations with a plethora of PS, I knew Dr. Kerr of Synergy Plastic Surgery was a cut above the rest. Dr Kerr, Tess, Melissa, and Ashley all made me feel confident and in good hands. My surgery was yesterday and, believe it or not, Dr. Kerr made the entire process a peice of cake for me. The girls are sore, but more like how you'd feel after over-doing it at the gym.. pics to come soon and I'll keep you posted on my progress.

TT, BBL and lipo in Round Rock, TX

Tomorrow I have scheduled a consultation to meet Dr. Kerr! I'm so excited to meet him and hear his professional opinion. I have seen him on the TV show Skin Tight and I'm impressed. I have been wanting a BBL for quite some time and now after completing my family, I am ready to take the plunge! I have always been insecure about my flat butt, stomach and arms and I'm finally going to do...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

I did it!!! TT and BL - Round Rock, TX

So far - very good bedside manner and extremely good reviews from patients. Down to earth and seemingly knowledgable and competent. Great before and after pictures. Will say more as I have more contact with pre-op and post-op. Went to Pre-op appt today - really love my PS so far - he's so calm and collected and really positive. About three weeks ago, I called to ask some questions and the patient coordinator told me to email Dr Kerr directly! So I did - and within the hour he replied and told me he'd answer all my questions that evening. Sure enough - that night I got a response - and he answered every one of my 10 questions, thoughtfully! I was frankly stunned. Feeling so much better and at ease and confident that I'm in good hands! Three weeks post-op: I love my results, my doc, and his staff! I have had nothing but good experiences with them, I'm so grateful! I will never use any other plastic surgeon and I will sing his praises to everyone who is considering having work done. I'm 110% glad I chose Dr Kerr and Synergy Plastic Surgery!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Recently the appearance of my nose really started looking uglier - Best Decision I Ever Made! - Austin, TX

Dr. Kerr and the staff at Synergy Plastic Surgery are truly amazing and unique. What I like about Dr. Kerr is that I can talk to him as he’s one of my friends and he "gets it"! He’s so down to earth but at the same time he’s extremely smart and professional. If you want to talk medical jargon he can to that, but if not; he’s up for that too! Also, his staff is ALWAYS in the best spirit. You’ll never find them without a smile on their faces. However, what really made a lasting impression on me was the amount of time Dr. Kerr spent with me during my initial consultation. First, we sat in his office and he took his time listening to me and what I wanted; I never felt rushed. I say he "gets it," because I always felt like Dr. Kerr and I were on the same team, he always understood what I was trying to convey. He made sure I understood the basics of the procedures before moving forward. I am truly grateful for the time and effort he dedicated to me and my procedure. He’s passionate about his work and never steers away from the plan. He’s simple, yet tremendously talented and I couldn’t be happier with my results! Regardless of whether it was the initial consultation, or a follow-up appointment; Dr. Kerr and the entire staff at Synergy Plastic Surgery made sure I always felt comfortable from the very beginning. My entire experience has been excellent and probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Synergy Plastic Surgery definitely comes highly recommended!

28 Year Old, 2 Kids, Breastfed, 32A Wanting a Natural Looking C Cup

So I was hesitant about keeping up with my story but after relying upon so many on this site and everyone's experiences and reviews, I am hopeful I can help someone else too. I have been a size 32A since middle school. It was like once my body "blossomed" my boobs never did. I have always avoided wearing cute v-line or scoop neck shirts or dresses because of my chest. My younger sister is a...
