5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Long Awaited Thigh Lift - San Antonio, TX

Great experience with caring & highly qualified Plastic surgeon (Dr. Peter Fisher) in San Antonio Texas. After all the thigh lift reviews about his work, I decided o travel from D.C. To Texas for my surgery. It was well worth it. I'm in week 3 of recovery. I stayed in Texas for 15 days and focused on my thigh lift recovery. I have found that Dr. Fisher and his staff are responsive to any concerns/questions & get back to you right away even when you return home. Check out my before pictures on Happy Camper in DC. I will post other pictures once I get them back from Dr. Fisher. He's definitely 5 stars and worth traveling to Texas.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Best Doctor Ever

After months of researching many doctors I decided on Dr. Fisher and I definitely made the right choice. I had a lower body lift and arm lift. I am very happy with my results. I will be going back, soon, for a thigh lift and breast lift. Dr. Fisher is professional and a very kind and caring doctor. He cares about you and also cares about his work. If I had any questions or concerns he got back...

Arm Lift, Bra Line Lift and Lipo.

Dr. Fisher is a very caring, knowledgeable, down to earth person who always makes me feel comfortable and takes as much time is needed to answer questions. I would choose him for all my PS needs without thinking twice!

Dr. Fisher - Post MWL specialist - brachio, LBL, whole leg lipo - San Antonio, TX

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!

After weight loss: Lower Body Lift, Spiral Thigh Lift, Breast Lift. San Antonio, TX

Dr. Peter Fisher is an outstanding surgeon that can deliver what he promises. He is a very well qualified, extremely experienced and deeply caring professional. He is not your typical, "cookie-cutter" doctor, he extensively performs a combination of intricate and complicated procedures in one surgery setting, especially beneficial for patients that have lost a lot of weight. He had a very realistic vision for my case and has gained my trust and confidence through every step of the process. He was very patient in answering questions, clearly explaining procedures and he has a keen understanding of all the underlying emotional and physical issues that accompany extensive plastic surgeries. Dr. Fisher and his staff responded to all my concerns, questions and worries incredibly fast. I am very happy with what he did for me and feel very lucky that I live within driving distance from his practice.

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Lower Body Lift revision, Spiral Thigh Lift, Breast Lift - San Antonio, TX

I'm nearly 20 years post-MWL, and 9 years post lower body lift. The LBL, which I had done by a surgeon in Mexico, made a dramatic difference for me. I could get into size 4-6 pants, which made me feel thin! However, as time went on, I suppose my standards raised, and it became clear that I was left with no hips or buttocks, and a waist that was approximately the same size---a boxy, masculine shape. That plus the remaining saggy skin from breasts and thighs made me seek out a revision. This time, I spent more time researching PSs. The *best* way to choose, in my opinion, was to look at photos, lots of them. Any PS can have one or two really good outcomes, but I wanted someone who consistently improved all of his/her patients, including those with my specific problems. Dr. Fisher (that's Peter Fisher-- There are several Fishers.) was one of my two top choices. I frankly weighed skill above bedside manner in making my choice, but it was fortuitous that the very best MWL-plastics surgeon also is one of the most personable and understanding. At my consult, he gave me clear feedback about procedures I thought I needed, but really did not. I flew to Texas for an over 2 week stay, and it was well worth it. [His prices are quite reasonable, and the plane fare and hotel stay added on were still less expensive than my other choice of surgeon.] He has an artist's view of the entire body, and knows what needs to be done aesthetically. He also has an engineer's eye for the meticulous details that are required to get to that place. He spent over an hour measuring/marking the day before surgery, and he corrected his lines a few times to adjust for later lines and different positions. The office and nursing staff are wonderful, and I was followed closely until I left. I am so happy with my results and with Dr. Fisher. He's truly one of the best for MWL patients who have lost their shape. He's genius at sculpting a lovely, curvy body from all that skin.

Lower Body Lift W/Dr. Fisher's Signature Augmentation Procedure, Extended Breast Lift, and Arm Lift. San Antonio, TX

I have only spoken to Dr. Fisher once on the phone. (I live out of State and won't be able to meet him until my pre-op day.) He was very caring and knowledgeable. He took the time to look over my pictures and go over all of my options. I finally got to meet Dr. Fisher on Monday 5/23/16. He is wonderful. He takes his time to answer all your questions and gives you lots of details. I also got marked up today. He was very considerate with this embarrassing step in the process. He is a perfectionist and erased and redrew some lines, which is fine with me. He put me on a liquid diet for the next two days. My surgery is scheduled for Wednesday. I am feeling less nervous and more excited now after meeting Dr. Fisher. I am ready to get my 'Body by Dr. Fisher'. My surgery went well and I am liking my overall care and results. I couldn't have had a better PS.

Thigh Lift and Arm Lift. San Antonio, TX

I haven't had the surgery yet but I really like Dr. Fisher and his staff. They are all very friendly and Dr. Fisher is very nice. He really seems to know what he is doing. I was impressed by how long he took to do my markings. When I have had surgery in the past, the Doctor would do the markings in just a few minutes right before the surgery. He took about an hour. Took pictures before marking and after marking. He said it is like the blue print of the surgery and a very important step. I had never thought of that before, but it make sense. I will update with comments after the surgery.

Breast Lift with Implants and Arm Lift Following 95# Weight Loss (Gastric Sleeve) - San Antonio, TX

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Fisher. He is exceptional at his art and has an amazing personality. His “bedside manner” is exactly what I was looking for. He is honest, realistic, and professional. He spent the time necessary to explain everything and answer every question. I am ecstatic with my results and am already planning my lower body lift and thigh lift. (Posted 21 Dec 2014). I am now 13 days post op from my lower body lift and spiral thigh lift and couldn't be happier with Dr. Fisher. He truly is an amazing surgeon and kind man. He makes himself available for any questions or concerns which is very comforting. Dr. Fisher's nurse JoAnn is professional and caring. She responds to phone calls/emails promptly and is helpful and reassuring. I had a wonderful experience during my surgery and 2 night stay at Forrest Park Medical Center. The staff was very attentive, caring and professional. (Posted 9 Mar 2015). Thank you Dr. Fisher.

WHY DO SO FEW POST MASSIVE WEIGHT LOSS PATIENTS UNDERGO PLASTIC SURGERY?

I decided to write this blog after giving a lecture on post bariatric body contouring last night. I was presenting at a bariatric support group meeting and what got me thinking was a comment the bariatric surgeon running the group said during my introduction. He stated that only about 5-10% of post bariatric patients undergo plastic surgery. That night, I started thinking about that percentage. Why so few? I will try to answer my own question with three main reasons for not having post...

Lower Body Lift - Post Massive Weight-Loss Body Contouring

Lower Body Lift – Post Massive Weight-loss Body Contouring This article discusses the work horse of post massive weight loss body contouring: the lower body lift. Also known as the belt lipectomy, circumferential abdominoplasty and body lift, the lower body lift is the most sought-after procedure following massive weight loss. Why is this procedure called a lower body lift? The “body” part comes from the 360-degree incision all the way around the body which allows lifting of...

Post Massive Weight Loss Body Contouring - Dr. Peter Fisher, M.D.

Over the past ten years, the body contouring procedures following massive weight loss have increased more than ten-fold. Primarily performed by plastic surgeons, this area of surgery has essentially become a subspecialty of plastic surgery, making up to 80% of my practice. Like many regular cosmetic procedures, there is a definite learning curve as well as a higher complication rate to body contouring surgery. Although essentially cosmetic, a considerable amount of our reconstructive...
