5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Very Happy with Dr. Harris! - San Antonio, TX

Good doctors deserve some help in getting the word out Like anybody else I did extensive online research when I was considering having breast augmentation. Two things were very important to me: 1) That my physician shared my philosophy of beauty (or at least understood and respected it) and 2) that they had the expertise needed in order to successfully deal with an anatomical variation known as pectus excavatum. Being a health care professional, I feel I can tell when a doctor truly enjoys what they do and cares about the patient's needs. After a consultation with a "marketing savvy" cosmetic surgeon I was horrified at how easily a woman may be bullied into an appearance that didn't suit her. I was getting ready to look into out of state doctors when a friend suggested Dr. Harris. After meeting with her, I was very relieved to have found a local surgeon I liked. She took the time to listen, give me an overview of the procedure, answer questions, take measurements, go over the breast implant catalogue, discuss my concerns over pectus excavatum, etcetera. I walked out of her office certain that she knew what I wanted and that we had a good plan to achieve it. In addition, when I was tempted to deviate from the original plan, she did her duty in giving me an honest professional opinion, which I was so grateful for! The anesthesiologist that assisted in my procedure was also very caring and pleasant, which put me at ease. Of note, her fees and payment arrangements were also very reasonable and accommodating. The staff was also kind and pleasant. Overall, I definitely recommend Dr. Harris.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

amazing & life changing - San Antonio, TX

Dr. H was an amazing doctor before, during and after my surgery. I always felt overly comfortable with her from the moment I met her. I had visited other plastic surgeons before choosing to use Dr. H, but the moment I met her, my husband and I both just felt a sense of ease about her. She has always had my best interests in mind and was very honest about how the entire process works from consultation to total recovery! Dr. H is not only a plastic surgeon, but she is also an amazing artist. This is a unique quality to have in a plastic surgeon, many can study and practice to become a plastic surgeon, but not everybody is born with the natural ability to be an artist. Dr. H was an artist first who turned her love into a fantastic profession. People often ask me if I would have my surgery again, and with no hesitation I would say 100% yes, and only with Dr. H. I have and will continue to recommend her to my family and friends. Not only is she amazing, but so is everyone that works with and for her.

Great Surgeon and Physician! - San Antonio, TX

Dr. H is a great physician and surgeon. My procedure was the first surgery I had ever had and she made me feel very comfortable right from my first visit. She gave me all the information about my procedure beforehand and continues to follow up with me to make sure all we well after. I am very happy with my results. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful plastic or cosmetic surgeon and practitioner.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Wonderful - San Antonio, TX

I highly recommend Dr. H. I spent nearly 13 years thinking and planning on getting a tummy tuck. I talked to three other cosmetic surgeons, and Dr. H was by far the easiest physician to talk with and was willing to patiently answer my many questions. Although I am sure she would be a terrific cosmetic surgeon for men, every woman who is considering cosmetic surgery should see Dr. H. She understands why and what is important to women about cosmetic surgery. Now that the surgery is over, I could not be happier. Having the surgery and having Dr. H do it were two of the best decisions I have ever made. She is an angel.

Badly Encapsulated Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction of Hips - San Antonio, TX

I cannot say enough how blessed I was to be referred to Dr. Harris, & that does not come lightly from me as I had MAJOR trust issues with surgeons past. I have been through some really bad experiences, so when my surgeon whom I had a good experience with became ill the day before my scheduled surgery in September, I thought I was at a loss. Being that he would be out for an extended period of time and my encapsulation was painful at best, I was left to find another skilled surgeon to perform the surgery. After asking a few times for him to recommend someone, He recommended Dr. Harris, which said a lot to me from the beginning. I was able to get a consultation. The staff in the office is truly one of a kind!!! They were absolutely wonderful, so caring and so helpful!! That is something I had NOT experienced with the other surgeon. When Dr. Harris came in, she REALLY LISTENED to me. She didn't act rushed or as though I was wasting her time. She talked with me first, then did my exam after we discussed my requests, then I got dressed again and she spent even more time talking to me. She was so amazingly thorough and even talked me out of a procedure that wouldn't be a benefit to me. She could have easily sold me something but she was more concerned about ME not my money. I was amazed. They scheduled my surgery, got my paperwork so quickly for me, helped me with EVERYTHING, gave me my prescriptions and were so genuine during the whole process. I left feeling more confident than I ever have. Surgery day came, Dr. Harris came in and even though the surgery center was behind in their times checking people in as they were so busy, she never ever made me feel rushed. She explained the whole process to me and to my husband and made sure to answer any questions we may have, then Dr. Kruczek, the anesthesiologist that she has worked with for 18+ years, came in & he explained everything to us as well. They didn't just blow me off and say "She's been through this before, so we can skim over" which I fully expected, as I have experienced that before. I told him I have a little trouble coming out of anesthesia sometimes. He said "I will make sure you don't have that problem". He explained he will come give me a "margarita" to calm me before surgery starts and then before he left he said "God Bless you and your surgery" and I was highly impressed being that I am catholic, which they ask you during your interview if you want to give your info. He left and once I was prepped, came back with my "margarita", I don't remember a thing because he doesn't like you to have to see the operating room. I thought that was amazing. Was so impressed by that as that can be stressful for some folks! I came out of anesthesia so quickly I was again amazed. I was in recovery for what seemed like a very short period of time so it was great! My husband said Dr. Harris came out and explained how everything went and made him feel a lot better about the process. Then he said they called to check on me the next morning! When I got up to shower the second day, I wanted to see the results, I figured I wouldn't be able to tell much about the lipo and be somewhat disappointed with the look of my breasts. I WAS SO HAPPY! Dr. Harris is a true artist. I don't say that lightly at all. My breasts looked perfectly proportioned (which I was very concerned about since I had such bad scar tissue build up) and were already plumping back up and my lipo LOOKED SO GOOD! I have had lipo in other areas and never could tell right away. One other note, because of the pocket being left behind with implant removal, Dr. Harris wanted to be safe and put in drains. I appreciated that immensely, as I would rather a surgeon err on the side of caution than not! Even though those aren't fun no matter how you spin it, there was plus to that part, she used a place from the lipo to insert the tube so I wouldn't have another hole and another stitch. THAT is a surgeon who cares more about her patients than anything else. My follow up appt., the staff was just as caring and friendly. The drain removal was not bad at all. Dr. Harris spent just as much time with us checking on things and discussing everything with to make sure we had no questions and I felt well. I genuinely cannot say one single negative thing. Not one. She is an artist and devoted to her patients. Dr. Kruczek was the best anesthesiologist I have had. And lastly, but just as important, Dr. Harris' staff is so professional, caring and helpful! I will use Dr. Harris for any procedure I might need in the future and I will recommend her to everyone I know. Thank you to her and her staff from the bottom of my heart. What a blessing ya'll are!
