Dr Downey office has made my plastic surgery experience wonderful. I had waited 12 years to have a tummy tuck. Did a lot of research at home and found Dr Downey office there in the Galleria. From the moment I had my 1st consult I knew she was the one. She was very professional and made me feel so comfortable with my decisions. I am around 3 weeks out I feel wonderful and couldn't be happier with my results. Thank you to Dr Downey and her staff member Carla for exceeding my expectations and making this such a good experience.
