Dr. Harrison and his staff are the absolute best. They made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. Dr. Harrison was very honest about what to expect and took the time to make sure I understood every aspect of my procedure. I am beyond excited with my results. I feel like a teenager again! If you’re looking for a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Harrison is the only choice.

We moved here a few years ago and I have been planning this surgery for 3. I have been researching surgeons to choose the right one for years. Dr. Harrison had recommendations from a few medical professionals that I trust. I was not disappointed. Dr. Harrison did a fabulous job on my surgery and has been great post operatively. Dr. Harrison really cares about his patients and I’m glad I chose him to improve my confidence.

Dr Harrison and his staff are lovely. He is one of the few doctors I’ve met who does not make you feel like a number on a chart. He seems to really care about patient needs/wants while not sugar coating the truth. I scheduled a breast augmentation with him and the whole process went beautifully as did my results; 10/10 experience and I definitely recommend his services!

From the moment I had my first appointment with Dr. Harrison, I knew I Had made the right decision choosing him for my breast lift with implant surgery. After many recommendations and research, he was the best in his field. He spent over an hour with me discussing my options and helping me choose the right procedure for me. After surgery, he called me on the weekend to make sure I was doing well And to answer any questions I might have. The ladies in the office were great as well. Always making me feel comfortable and were very professional. I love my results!!! Wish I had chosen to do this years ago. Thank you Dr. Harrison!!

Dr. Harrison just performed my third cosmetic procedure. I am a 59 year old woman, and have had a breast reduction, tummy tuck, and most recently, a face/neck lift. Obviously, I love his work, and I trust him completely. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, I highly suggest calling Dr. Harrison for a consultation. The sooner you do it, the longer you can enjoy it.

Dr Harrison helped me so much. I had lipo and breast augmentation and I am completely satisfied with the results. My clothes fit better and I feel great. His staff is sweet and caring and Dr Harrison is very knowledgeable. The first two weeks after surgery was tough but I did what he said and it was fine. I’m so glad I did this. I highly recommend Dr Harrison. Everything he said that would happen was correct. He did a great job.

From beginning to end I felt confident and comfortable with Dr. Harrison. He utilized the entire consultation time to thoroughly explain my breast augmentation procedure and answered any questions I had. He was honest, upfront, and personable. I left with no unanswered questions. My surgery went well and he checked on me all weekend which I appreciated. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend him and his staff without a doubt!

I had a breast reduction in June 2019. I am 57 years old and have been pregnant 5 times. My breast were very large and saggy. I am a gardener. I love being out side. In this Texas heat my breast were hot and I was battling under the breast rashes. Since my surgery I am much cooler outside, my shoulders, back, and neck don't hurt. Even the bottom of my feet from standing don't hurt anymore. He did a wonderful job. He matched my breast size to be proportional with my body. He uses a new technic that will help support them longer and the down time is faster. I had surgery on Friday and he called me everyday over the weekend to check on me. He has a wonderful staff that took their time. I never felt rushed or abandoned through out this endeavor. My sister had this done years ago and was always try to get me do this surgery. I am so glad I finally did. I finally feel normal. I can't wait to buy new clothes. I highly recommend Dr. Harrison and getting this surgery done.

I had a tummy tuck and liposuction in January 2019. Dr. Harrison and his staff were amazing to work with. My results are beyond my expectations. The first six days of recovery were the absolute worst. Dr. Harrison called me several times to reassure me that all would be ok and he was of course right but the fact the he called really helped me get through the agony mentally. I highly recommend him and will only consider him should I get anything else done in the future.

What a wonderful experience! Thank you so much! This has been quite the journey! Losing 75 pounds in 9 months left me wanting to make a few improvements to my body! Dr. Harrison and his team of ladies made this experience so much easier! Thank you, Linda, April and Denette for making me feel so comfortable! You know when you are in the right place when the pre-op nurse tells you that if she was going to have any work done that Dr. Harrison would be the one to do it! Thank you!!!!!

I am very happy with the results of the cosmetic procedure that Dr. Harrison performed on me! Until now, I’ve had one cosmetic surgeon that I always went to for “improvements”, but I wasn’t satisfied with my last procedure. Dr. Harrison understood my concerns, discussed a plan, and performed the improvements that I hoped for! He also called me over the weekend to make sure I was comfortable and well after surgery ! Definitely wish I had found him sooner!

I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of my recent tummy tuck with lipo! Dr Harrison is very compassionate and caring and is a gifted surgeon. He checked on me personally the days after my procedure, and communicated with my Husband more than once the day of my surgery. His staff is caring and courteous. Dr Harrison made me feel comfortable about my procedure before and after the surgery, and his enthusiasm for my great outcome was evident as he cared for me. I highly recommend him!
