Education, Training & Awards
Dr. Fisher graduated medical school with honors from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to complete her training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. During her plastic surgery training, she cared for patients with breast cancer, head and neck cancer, and burn and extremity trauma, using both traditional and microsurgical reconstructive techniques to solve a spectrum of functional and aesthetic problems. She trained in microsurgical perforator flap (DIEP flap) breast reconstruction at Magee-Womens Hospital and studied microsurgical lymph node transfer to treat upper extremity lymphedema with Dr. Corrine Becker in Paris. Dr. Fisher has an affinity for the precision and artistry of plastic surgery and its potential to help improve and restore a patient’s form, function and confidence. She has performed over six thousand breast reconstruction procedures in Austin since 2013.
Dr. Fisher won the Gold Foundation Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award twice and the Department of Plastic Surgery teaching award three times. She has published multiple peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in topics ranging from regenerative medicine to patient safety. Following her research fellowship in regenerative medicine, she continues to have an ongoing interest in the potential applications of adipose-derived stem cells and fat grafting in soft tissue restoration.
Dr. Fisher is proud to serve on the Medical Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors for the Breast Cancer Resource Center and is a regularly invited guest speaker and blogger on topics related to breast reconstruction, as well as an Art Bra® Austin sponsor. She regularly attends national breast and microsurgery meetings to stay up to date on the latest research and uses an evidence-based approach to provide optimal, state-of-the-art care.
When not in the hospital or clinic, Dr. Fisher enjoys spending time with her husband and three young children. She bakes on weekends, is energized by live music, and relaxes by jogging, swimming, going horseback riding, and participating in other outdoor activities.

“I never thought I’d need plastic surgery … until I did. Breast cancer caused problems after the lumpectomy, which required breast reconstruction to fix. Then, the radiated tissue caused more problems that needed to be addressed. It’s not easy having survived cancer to then have to have two additional surgeries. Dr. Christine Fisher was recommended by my oncologist, and she is a gift from God! From the very first consultation, Dr. Fisher (and her staff) made me feel comfortable and like I was her most important patient. She took time to go over every aspect of my condition and situation, what needed to be done, what would be done, how she would do it, and the outcome. She drew it on a board so I could understand, and she answered every question. Before the surgery, I sent emails with questions, which were all answered that day or first thing in the morning, or they would call. The staff is always courteous and caring. They are all sensitive to what you go through, and they treat you with respect. They have worked with so many cancer patients, and they want to help make things better and go as smoothly as they can. When another surgery was needed, I thought everyone in the office would cry as they felt so bad I had to go through it again. They are loving and kind, but also extremely thorough! Dr. Fisher doesn’t accept anything but the best from herself, her staff, and the hospital where she conducts her surgeries. I like that! She’s straightforward and doesn’t talk in circles, but tells it like it is. If you don’t understand it, she will work to explain things until you do. You can see it in her eyes that she really CARES about you and your entire well being, not just the area she’s working on. I could go on and on with praise for Dr. Fisher and her team! I highly recommend her to anyone needing reconstructive surgery. Oh, and the results? I can hardly see the scars! Excellent work. Unless you knew where to look, you wouldn’t even know I’d had surgery!”
