"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"



"One week post-op and feeling GREAT!! couldn't be happier!! First surgery and first time under anesthesia I was NERVOUS. I had my surgery on a Thursday and I was back to work by Monday. The pain was one of my big concerns and I only had "pain" the two days after surgery. I would say 3/10 wasn't bad at all. Consulted with 5 different doctors regarding breast augmentation. 1 made me feel horrible, 3 were ok, but Dr. Dauwe and his staff made me feel so comfortable. I had my consultation with him and immediately after, I scheduled my surgery. Dr. Dauwe not only picked the PERFECT size for me, but he really took the time to listen. He answered all my questions/concerns, and I instantly trusted him. Julie and the staff are absolutely amazing!! They are so professional and made the process so easy and smooth. I am so happy I chose Dr. Dauwe. He is so talented and his work is phenomenal. Dr. Dauwe, Julie, Sara and all the staff thank you so so much!!!"



"I could not be happier with the results from my breast augmentation. Dr. Dauwe is not only an extremely talented surgeon, but he and his whole team are compassionate, patient, and beyond generous. They have truly given me the breast’s of my dreams!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! 12/10 recommend Dauwe Plastic Surgery to anyone!!"



"Where do I begin? Seriously the BEST Dr and staff ever! 14 years ago I had a breast lift and augmentation at a different location. Immediately started having complications, resulting in multiple skin graphs and reconstruction. Also resulting in nerve damage. I’ve been SCARED to get this issue fixed. Until my best friends and several of their family members shared their experience with Dr Dauwe and his staff! AMAZING! So I gave them a shot, and let me tell you my experience with them and their entire staff was just as if not more amazing! Not only did they calm my fears and gave me my confidence back, you could not ask for a better staff and Doctor Who genuinely cares about your well-being and your needs. This has been some thing that has lowered my self-esteem for the past 14 years and I finally feel whole again! The surgery went perfect with Little pain and I was so worried about the healing process because of the last experience I had with another office. But so far I am doing beyond better than expected and they have been nothing but amazing! My husband and I were blown away with the surgery center and all the staff there just being over and abundantly caring not just being nice because it’s their job but genuinely caring about you! I simply cannot say enough! If you were looking for a cosmetic doctor for any reason I highly recommend Dr. Dauwe and his wonderful staff! Thank you again for giving me back my confidence!"



"I can’t recommend Dr.Dauwe enough! I consulted with two other doctors but am so glad I chose his practice. Dr.Dauwe and his staff are all so professional and knowledgeable, and make me feel super comfortable every time I see them. I am one week post op and have been pain free and feel amazing. My results are even better than expected, couldn’t be happier!"
