5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

After a Year of Researching and 3 Different Consultations , I Finally Found the Right Surgeon - London, GB

Mr Townley has excelled in patient care and attention, from the initial consultation right through to the follow ups after surgery. For example on the day of surgery the nerves really kicked in, but after we discussed what was going to happen I felt relaxed. When I woke up after the surgery he was there and said that everything had gone well. Throughout the process Mr Townley has reassured me and always been approachable and easy to contact, he has welcomed questions and concerns and replied promptly to every email.

Great doctor, very positive experience. So happy I did it!

Very good experience, made to feel very important from the 1st meeting, was able to return for more consultations free of charge. In the run up to the surgery I felt at ease and excited. Everything went well on the day of surgery and I was well looked after by Mr Townley and the team at Weymouth street hospital. So far great after care, cast off and chat at 6 days post op then another follow...

An Amazing Experience with a Highly Skilled Surgeon

Fantastic experience and outcome! Mr Townley is a highly skilled surgeon and I am very pleased I chose him for my rhinoplasty op. He is friendly, calm and listens to what you want. I am very happy with my natural looking result and I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of having this procedure. I was also hugely impressed by the Weymouth Street hospital and the caring and attentive staff that work there.

Wanted: New Nose

Friendly, passionate and personable, Mr Townley was able to offer advice and allayed any fears I had. He was prepared to answer all questions no matter how ridiculous. Aftercare questions were answered promptly and in depth and it was easy to book appointments. Emails were also answered quickly! I'd definitely recommend Mr Townley

52 Yr Old with 2 Previous Rhinoplastys - London, GB

From the 1st consultation to operation day , Mr Townley was very approachable and helpful. Answering any concerns I had immediately. He put my mind at ease and I knew I was in safe hands. The aftercare was also appreciated as I didn't live locally to the hospital . He rang me personally a few days later to ensure I was healing well, even though I am going to see him next week.

Great Experience E. London, GB

Felt comfortable throughout entire process- doctor is earnest, thorough and knowledgable. He maintained excellent communication before and after which was very reassuring. I'm happy to recommend this consultant to anyone considering cosmetic surgery; Dr Townley will take the time needed to go through your options with you.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

27 Year Old Woman, 32GG Before Op and Miserable Now Around a D Cup and Best Decision of my Life - London, GB

Dr Townley is amazing. He has a fantastic bedside manner. He is so calm and reassuring that I always felt in safe hands (and so did my mum who accompanied me to the first consultation). I'd never had an operation before and so was a little nervous but most importantly I trusted him as my surgeon, which is everything! He is highly skilled and did a brilliant job. I love the result - they look amazing! The scars are healing nicely and he gave me some top tips and advice at how to speed recovery and improve the appearance of scars. He encouraged me to get up and do things quite soon after (providing it didn't include lifting heavy things or overdoing it), and this meant I wasn't lounging around. I am convinced that being active helped me recover quickly and kept me sane. The shape he has created is wonderful and I love my new breasts so much! I am a very happy woman! He has also been brilliant at responding to my emails with any queries I may have had. He called to check in with me as well. He has always been there to put my mind at rest.
