About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

For over 30 years, Dowden Plastic Surgery has been serving the Lexington, KY and Georgetown, KY areas, delivering excellent medical care to all our patients. Thanks to our team's dedication to remaining innovative, we are able to offer a range of procedures. In addition to offering surgical options that have been available for many years now, such as tummy tucks and breast augmentations, we are also able to offer non-invasive procedures that give excellent results. By offering procedures such as photofacial therapy and chemical skin peels, we can offer all of our patients the opportunity to enhance their appearance without having to take time from their busy lives.

We built our practice around the skills of highly trained specialists, and we pride ourselves on professionalism. We want each patient who experiences care with us to feel comfortable, which is why we are highly selective regarding the staff we hire. We can assure you that we'll treat your case with dignity and care and that all information will remain confidential. As a professional medical team with great ethics, we also like to make sure that all of our patients feel as though they have received care in a friendly and welcoming environment. To learn more about what we have to offer, contact us for a consultation today.
