    I always recommend Dr. Gowda to friends and family ...I have never looked better and I am grateful!!

    I would like to say to anyone considering cosmetic surgery, Dr.Gowda is a professional. Not only does he educate you, but he also envisions what your body will look like.

    Dr. Gowda is the best around. I couldn't be happier with my new breasts. They are better than they've ever been. I would highly recommend him. He listened to my desires and concerns and did exactly what I wanted. The office staff are all super friendly, too.

    Dr. Gowda performed a Z-plasty on a hypertrophic scar on my neck that was bothering me a lot. In just a little over two months from the procedure it is now barely visible. I can tell that in a few more months it will be completely gone. Dr. Gowda is a top shelf plastic surgeon, my whole experience, from initial consultation to procedure to healing, has been the highest quality!
    Most unprofessional office I have ever encountered in my 50 year!!! Waiting over two hours for an appointment is unacceptable without the common courtesy of a phone call! The staff was less than apoogetic and stated this wait is normal for Dr. Gowda and asked me if I'd like to reschedule. So I should reschedule to wait another two hours for a post operative appointment that would take him less than 10 minutes.

    No wait time, the staff and Dr. Gowda made me feel very comfortable

    I would readily refer any friend or family member to see Dr. Gowda, and in fact I have done so already. He is an exemplary surgeon and from what I have heard from others who have had surgery, he has outstanding results. He takes the time to explain your procedure and answer your questions. He is patient and kind, and you never feel rushed. It doesn't take long to get an appointment and he has two offices to accommodate his patients. His front office staff and nurses are great, as is Kelly!
    I am writing this review while in the waiting area, because that is where most of your time will be spent. With that said, Dr. Gowda is the absolute best & is worth the wait. Just don't expect to be seen on time.
    in Grand Blanc, MI |
    Absolutely superb!!! Could not ask for a better surgeon. Very compassionate and patient oriented. He will spend as much time as you want and need to explain a procedure and answer questions. He will NOT do a procedure for the sake of making money. If he thinks you really do not need something, or if he believes you are not a candidate for a particular procedure he will be forthcoming and honest. His skills are second to none. His staff are friendly and professional. Nurse Kelly is the be

    I would refer Dr. Gowda to anyone who is contemplating having plastic surgery done. Dr. Gowda and his staff are very professional and take their time in explaining procedures and answering questions to ensure patient comfort. Very happy with the whole team!
    in Detroit, MI |
    I have had tremendously good results from this doctor. I had facial fat grafting that added volume to my face . I also had and an eye lift. Those changed the look of my face, to someone who look much younger. I am no longer self conscious about my face It also made me feel better after he removed several inches of skin that was hanging from my upper arms. Now I can again wear short sleeve blouses and dresses again without feeling self conscious. His staff is friendly and helpful.
    Farmington, MI |
    Dr. Gowda and his staff was amazing. I went for a consultation for fillers and he was very informative and made me feel comfortable. He was patient and he is kind. I believe he has my best interest at hand and never holds back his honest opinion.
    Northville, MI |
    Knowledgeable and friendly service. I would recommend this doctor.
    Dr.Gowda was very knowledgeable and had great bedside manner. I have my breast aug scheduled for next month with him. Cannot wait to see the results!!
    in Troy, MI |
    I met with Dr. Gowda about some skin pigmentation issues that I have. After he looked at my skin he knew immediately what treatment I needed for improvement. I am currently healing from my first treatment of the HALO laser, and I can honestly say my skin is looking much brighter. I'm so excited for the final results!!!

    in Troy, Mi |
    I really like being a patient at Dr. Gowda's office. Dr. Gowda and his staff are very concerned about the patients and they take pride in offering the most effective treatments at a great price. They don't sell you things that aren't necessary and that is a big deal to me! The wait times aren't long and they take the time during appointments to make sure the patients have the best experience. I really like working with Kelly to meet my goals and I am happy that I came to Dr. Gowda instead of ano

    I saw Dr Gowda for an evaluation of a possible ruptured implant and Botox. I did wait an hour and a half but when he came in he was very attentive. He did not try to push me into another surgery which I appreciated. Then he did an excellent job with Botox! I had to go for a touchup two weeks later which he did quickly. I was very pleased with his care and with office staff at both Troy and Novi.
    in Northville, Michigan |
    Excellent Doctor. Very calm, attentive and professional. Great procedures and results.
    in Fowlerville mi |
    I would definitely recommend Dr. Gowda. He was kind, caring and answered all my question pre-surgery. I had a breast reduction/lift and new implants and I'm 3 weeks post op and am incredibly happy with my new happy, perky breasts! Dr. Gowda is excellent and I will be going back for other services in the future!
    in Livonia, mi |
    Very professional, effective service.staff and office very good as well.
    in Birmingham, MI |
    He is the best doctor for Botox. Everyone I know has gone to his office, explored elsewhere and then ended up going back to him. He has changed my life and I look fantastic. He was able to capture exactly what I wanted which was a brow lift. He is a very warm person and his authentic and caring "energy" shines through. My appointments at the Novi and Troy offices are very quick in and out visits that I have done on my lunch hour.

    in Sterling Heights, MI |
    I absolutely love this office! Dr. Gowda is a genuinely nice person. His patience and gentle nature is refreshing. He took a mole off of my face and you would never be able to tell where it was! No scar! I also have his RN Kelly do treatments for my rosacea. Talk about awesome...!!! This office is all about their patience. They really know their stuff! The doctor and the staff are all a 5 star, in my book. ??????????
    Very professional and clean. Friendly staff.

    in Northville, MI |
    Could not be happier with my results! Dr. Gowda is friendly, knowledgeable, & a perfectionist which translated in to AMAZING results! He doesn't try to over-sell on anything & in fact will tell you if you do not need something you are inquiring about. I even took my young daughter to him after our dermatologist recommended we see a plastic surgeon to remove a questionable mole/birthmark from her arm. I also see Kelly in the Troy office & Dana who works in both offices & highly recommend!!

    Dr. Gowda is my top pick for plastic surgery. He is very thorough and kind and did an amazing job of explaining my procedure. (Face Lift) He is a gifted surgeon and takes his time when suturing so scars are imperceptible.
    in Troy, MI |
    This physician is the very best @ his craft. His keen eye to details for perfection, pleasurable bedside manners, and honest advice is what makes Dr. Mune Gowda the man i trust when it comes to enhancing my aesthetic appeal. He is just beyond amazing, with the amount of knowledge he possess for his skill set. He's not out to take your money, no way, he is prideful in his work, and he genuinely cares about his patients in meeting their expectation & satisfaction.

    I can?t say enough about this plastic surgeon. He is all that you want in a plastic surgeon in Novi, Michigan. Excellent bedside manner and spends as much time as YOU want to ask and answer questions etc. He fixed many ?wrongs? that I had from another plastic surgeon and did so with grace, manner, and kindness to all. Dr. Gowda is a perfect example of a great plastic surgeon. He has been Doctor of the Year in the Metro Detroit Area for years and America?s Top Surgeons and I now know why.
