"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!"



"For being a plastic surgeon, this amazing dr was able to tell me answers drs haven’t been able to give me for years (decades) about other medical conditions I have) He was so knowledgeable and truly listened and cares for his patients. I wish I could see him exclusively for every issue, I would definitely recommend over any other dr!! Beyond amazed at him and his professionalism. All staff was so friendly too!"



"SIMPLY THE BEST. I am so happy I chose Dr. Dauwe and his incredible staff for my breast reduction. I have never had surgery before and they made me feel comfortable and assured that I was in good hands. I can't recommend this place enough and feel fortunate to have found a place that truly cares about their patients. Thank you all!"



"I wanted to do a breast reduction for over a decade and was nervous and decided not to go through with it due to my skin keloid. A previous surgeon told me I would scar really bad afterwards. After having my son, my breast were even larger. I decided to go ahead and go through with the breast reduction knowing there was a chance of scarring. Dr. Dauwe explained to me my chance scaring, but had a oncologist doctor lined up to start radiation immediately after the procedure. Well his approach worked, no scaring and the reduction was successful. Also in the process of the breast reduction procedure he was able to do the lift and remove an unwanted tattoo. I definitely recommend him."



"I had been considering a face lift but I was nervous. I decided to go get a consultation with Dr Dauwe because of his excellent reputation. As soon as I walked in his office all the staff made me feel welcome. Dr. Dauwe, Julie, Sara and Brea and the rest of the staff were very friendly, professional and helpful! He performed a face lift on me a few months ago and Im very happy with the results!!!! He did an amazing job. He is the only plastic surgeon I would trust for my future procedures and highly recommend! Also my injector Tessa is awesome."
