During my first consultation, I was really nervous because it was my first time to undergo plastic surgery. I wanted to have a Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Cara Downey of Downey Plastic Surgery made me feel very comfortable, giving advice and providing me sufficient information about the surgery. I knew I was in good hands. Aside from being friendly, her skills in operating are highly commendable because I felt little to no pain as I was going through my recovery. The results are also amazing. I refer Dr. Cara Downey to everyone I know who wants to undergo plastic surgery!

I had such a great experience with Dr. Downey. I was referred by a friend. This was my third attempt at getting surgery on some trouble spots after significant weight loss. I didn't go in with high expectations, only because I'd had my hopes up with others and been let down. From the moment I scheduled an appointment, it was nothing but positive and it set in motion what has been a life altering experience. Dr. Downey's team (and Dr. Downey herself) were very courteous and thorough. Dr. Downey didn't set any unrealistic expectations like the surgeons I'd previously worked with. I liked her honesty. I didn't expect to go in looking like the formerly morbidly obese "guy next door" and coming out looking like an Abercrombie model. She reinforced that mindset. Again, that kind of honesty, I appreciate in a surgeon. I'm very pleased with my results and am looking forward to possibly more operations in the future with Dr. Downey.
