Treatment Received: Plastic Surgeon Consultation
Dr Dower and his staff were very professional on our first consultation. Dr Dower was very sensitive, understanding of my daughter's questions, concerns and gave immediate answers. I trust him with my daughter's future confidence and well being.

Very professional staff and environment. The documentation that he provided for further information was very comprehensive and detailed. It helps me to make a final decision and to feel confident with it.

"Pefore I could think what I needed to do next, it was done for me"
5 50Reviewed 27 Oct 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Facelift
I really wanted to look younger in a natural way. It took me a while to make the decision to have a facelift but in Dr. Dower's hands, I got the result I could have only dreamt of. I look myself, just 20 years younger. It has given me a renewed energy and excitement for life. He is a brilliant surgeon and I really recommend him to any woman who wants to turn back the clock without looking like you've been operated on.

Very professional - before I could think what I needed to do next, it was done for me. Lots of good preparation and helped me to feel relaxed and know I would be well taken care of. The nursing staff were extremely kind and supportive.

With a surgical facelift, the general approach taken by Dr Dower is to provide a natural-looking facial enhancement without creating an overstated appearance.
