He listens to your concerns and thoroughly explains all that the procedure involves. I would definitely recommend Mr Townley 100%. I am extatic about my results, they look amazing! Such a great surgeon!“

Dr Townley was fantastic! I had minor surgery to remove as cyst from my cheek which I was so worried about because of potential scarring. Dr T and his wonderful nurse assistant put me at ease straight away and the procdure was seamless! I 4 months later and my scar is unnoticeable! Dr T checked up on me a week or so post procedure and was keen to keep in touch months later. I am so glad that I decided to go with Dr T and I would strongly recommend him to anyone considering any sort of surgery of his expertise! Thank you Dr Townley 😊

Mr Townley is highly professional and caring from initial consultation through to surgery and aftercare. He takes time to listen, gives helpful explanations, and has a calm and reassuring bedside manner. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery and feel more confident as a result. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

I just wanted to say a major thank you for all the care and amazing skills that you have shown during the time-frame of my treatment. The good fortune to have a wife who pushed me to go to the GP who in turn connected me to you is quit remarkable. You have shown so much patience in answering all of our questions and understanding exactly how we both felt. Your empathy is something that I will take through life with me and try to copy. Hard to believe we chatted about fly-fishing during my procedure and even more remarkable to me is that you were doing all of this by yourself without nursing aid. When we heard the 'C' word if fills us with fear. More because it's unknown and uncontrollable than anything else. I have been lucky in that you delivered that judgement and while shocking, you did not miss stride in just looking and deciding how best to tackle it. You took on the challenge with such confidence that you filled me with positive energy which I still carry into the recovery period. I'm blessed by the good fortune to have you as my surgeon. I owe you more than I could ever count, thank you for being there for me Bill.

I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for your fantastic care, guiding me through the process and making me feel as comfortable as possible. You never seemed to be in a hurry and showed true concern. Your quality and integrity as a surgeon and more fundamentally as a person shines through. Through you I can finally have my life back. Also, a big thank you to your team for being super patient with millions of my questions and concerns.

I cannot recommend Mr Townley highly enough. I have the privilege to work with Mr Townley as part of the Head and Neck team at Guy's hospital. He is an extremely skilled and capable surgeon, who always goes the extra mile for his patients and is very well respected by his peers. Bill is a top facial reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon, and one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in London.
