I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Harrison and the entire staff. It's rare to find a doctor who listens to their patients wishes and takes time in explaining the entire process. I am beyond pleased with my surgical results and the after care that was provided. Dr. Harrison even called me the weekend following my surgery to see how I was feeling and if there was anything I needed. He prayed over me before my surgery and made put me at ease. You're in great hands with him!!
in Henderson, TX |
Dr Harrison and his staff are the best! The staff will walk you through the process step by step and are always available to answer any questions. Dr Harrison, Linda, Tonya, Mary and Jennifer, thank you for the taking care of me; I feel like a new person!
Tyler, TX |
I chose Dr. Harrison because I have heard such amazing things about his work continuously for the past 15 years. I personally know 12 ladies he has operated on. This made choosing Dr. Harrison was easy for me. My primary reason for seeking consultation was how I felt about my body after having 2 children. I was impressed!! I had no idea I would look this great. His staff was wonderful and friendly and I was well taken care of. I highly recommend Dr Harrison and his staff!
in Sulphur Springs, TX |
When I decided to research breast augmentation, I started by looking for a doctor nearby. After finding Dr Harrison, I set up an appointment and was blown away with his personality. He's outgoing and sweet, understanding, and ready to help. He was willing to explain every aspect and help me understand why I had developed much less than like my friends growing up. I knew right away that I was going forward. The surgery was simple and painless, and the recovery was super easy! Happier everyday!
Athens, TX |
When I first went to see Dr. Harrison, I was an A cup and now I am about a C cup. I don't have stretch marks or any other problems that may come with surgery. If I had to do it over again, I most definitely would! Dr. Harrison is really good about taking care of all the patient needs. It's great to have the kind of doctor that other doctors talk very well of. Right before my surgery my anesthesiologist met with me for my vitals and explained how Dr. Harrison is like an artist.
Flint, TX |
With my 50th high school reunion approaching, I decided not to wait any longer to see Dr. Harrison. I am thrilled with the results of my upper eyelid surgery & croton oil peel on my lower lids. It’s obvious Dr. Harrison is committed to excellence in every area of his practice, but he is also very patient, caring, amiable, and funny. He inspired confidence at every stage of my experience with him, and I would certainly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.
in Tyler |
Dr. Harrison has an unforgettable humorous side but what makes him stand above par is his desire to do the absolute best job. Though I was happy with the initial result of the Lipo in a difficult area, Dr. Harrison wanted the best outcome. Dr. Harrison included additional procedure to get us there. I had a horrendous "buffalo hump" and his work made me feel normal again.
Lindale, TX |
Dr. Houston and his staff were extremely courteous to my daughter. After her accident, their sensitivity helped ease, not only her concerns, but the concerns of my husband and me. Our family will be forever grateful for Dr. Houston, and the time he spent giving our daughter his best medical attention and care.

Dr. Harrison is a great doctor. He is a pleasure to see and truly cares about his patients. He has the eye of an artist when applying his treatments. He has done facial surgery and he corrected a breast augmentation done by a different doctor as well as facial filler. I definitely look younger as a result of his treatment.

I considered plastic surgery, but I talked myself out of it because I felt like I was being selfish.  One morning, however, I realized I deserved to be happy in my own skin. From the moment I stepped into Dr. Harrison's office, I knew I'd made the right decision.  Dr. Harrison and his staff are the most loving, nurturing, and knowledgeable staff I could have ever imagined dealing with. I'm so appreciative of their honesty through the process of getting my lower body lift. They are a blessing.
Wow, Thank you so much for your kind words and confidence in my practice. I am humbled and at the same time so pleased I was able to facilitate you reaching your goals.

I chose Dr. Harrison (for breast augmentation) because my mother and mother in law had very good experiences with him years ago. I was thoroughly impressed by every detail that he and his staff thought of and covered. My questions were thoroughly answered, I felt very comfortable and taken care of, I am so pleased with the results, he sent flowers, called to check on me, and overall I just couldn't imagine this experience without Dr. Harrison and his team! Highly recommend!

I was beyond pleased with my whole experience. Dr. Harrison is highly educated and a perfectionist at what he does. He is entertainingly hilarious & makes you feel as if he has known you your whole life. His staff is extremely helpful & courteous. My breast augmentation and lift results are everything I dreamed of & more. The scarring I was most worried about are barely even noticeable 7 months later. Needless to say the only person that loves them more than I do is my husband.

in Tyler, TX |
I saw Dr. Harrison on the advice of several friends and was 110% satisfied with his work! I went in looking to even out my frame, (I was wearing a large bottom and small top) and Dr. Harrison was happy to discuss other options besides breast augmentation to get the look I wanted. In the end, we decided the best option was augmentation. My favorite part was getting to tell Dr. Harrison what I wanted to look like and him being able to fill that expectation and exceed it!

I chose Dr. Harrison because he came highly recommended by two of my friends. The entire experience was easy and fun. He has the best bedside manner and made me feel so comfortable during the entire process. His staff is wonderful too. He will be the only Dr. I will ever use for any future services.

Dr. Harrison says...

I treat gynecomastia (man boobs) using my surgical experience to produce a natural result. Massive weight loss patient present with a complex set of deformities that require staged planning to complete restoration. Emotional, physical and nutritional support is vital for a successful outcome. At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center-Tyler, we are specifically trained to address the whole person and their needs.

I also help coordinate the medical team (general surgeon & oncologist) for breast cancer patient requiring mastectomy & reconstruction. My follow up treatment for these patients includes wound care, dressing changes & procedures for breast symmetry.

Hypermastia and droopy breasts can be treated with a standard reduction or vertical reduction, may include implants and repositioning of the nipple. I did special training in Canada on vertical breast reduction technique, which addresses the need for: a narrower breast, less scarring, higher position on the chest wall & more persistent projection. Hypomastia can be treated with a variety of breast implants to customize the desired breast volume and shape.

Dr. Harrison says...

I have over 25 years of Cosmetic, Reconstructive and Plastic surgery experience.  My reputation is renowned in the United States for my expertise in breast surgery, body contouring and facial rejuvenation.  HI also have considerable experience in cosmetic surgery for men and insight into the unique needs of the male patient.

I am an expert in breast reduction, augmentation and reconstruction after mastectomy and because of this patients come to him from all over the United States. Doctors across the state refer their breast patients to me and seek my council.  I have performed hundreds of face & neck surgeries, earlobe repair and ear pinning, over a thousand body lifts,tummy tuck and liposuction procedures.  Over 20% of the patients in my practice are men because I am trained to deliver a non-feminizing facelift for the male patient, have performed hundreds of gynecomastia reduction procedures and knows how to help men communicate their goals.

I have the ability to earn patients trust by being trustworthy, I make them feel comfortable, creatively solve their individual plastic surgery concerns and educate them in realistic expectations.
