"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!"

"Dr Dauwe is amazing. He spends however much time you need for consult and does not make you feel rushed! He did amazing job on my surgery and his office staff is literally the best!!! They respond back quickly and are so nice from the front staff to the back! Definitely recommend!!!"
"I am now a little over 2 months post op after Dr. Dauwe performed a tummy tuck, breast lift and implant exchange for much smaller implants. I cannot say enough about how incredible my whole experience has been. Dr. Dauwe truly listened to what I was trying to achieve and my results are even better than I could have anticipated. He has given me so much more self confidence especially at 56 years old. He is such an amazing surgeon! He has an amazing staff too. Even the surgical center was the best I have encountered. I highly recommend Dr. Dauwe!!!"
"I came to Dr. Dauwe for a breast lift and the experience has been amazing. I’m only 3 weeks post op but Dr. Dauwe did a great job with my lift and making everything look proportional and the down time was very minimal! He is very thorough in his work and it shows! I’ll be going back around 6 months for implants to be put in and I already know he’s going to do a great job. Not to mention his practice manager, Julie Garcia is such a delight to work with! She’s extremely personable and is so extremely helpful with all my questions I have (trust me it’s a lot). The staff is so friendly and kind I cannot imagine going anywhere else!"
