this is why we do what we do!
I would like to say a huge thank you for the treatment I received from Mr Downie and Melissa. I had a small pustule under my eye with an unsightly vein. I am so happy with the results and can honestly say I never felt a thing. It was worth a trip from Carlisle. The environment and staff at Visage are so welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend Mr Downie and Visage! Thank you so much.
I am now 6 weeks post Rhinoplasty and I could not ask for a better result! Being only 20 years old, having a 'nose job' was a major decision of mine and I am so pleased it was done by Mr Downie and his team.
From my initial meet with Mr Downie, he was very professional and I was extremely well informed on the whole surgery to recovery process and felt happy with my decision.
I was expecting a rough surgery and recovery period but was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was. I had no pain whatsoever throughout my weeks recovery, just a little discomfort which was to be expected.
Overall, I am overjoyed with the results and have a new found confidence thanks to Mr Downie!
The entire team involved in my treatment have been extremely friendly and explained the ins and outs of the procedure in a simple and understandable manner that made the whole process very pleasant and stress free. During the procedure care was taken to ensure I knew exactly was going on and the conversational manner in the clinic made me feel completely at ease. Regarding the follow-up, staff were always available to contact. I am extremely pleased with the result of my operation and feel considerably more confident in myself as a result. Overall a highly worthwhile and stress free experience that I am so thankful for.

I visited Mr Downie last June with a request. I wanted to look rejuvenated but as naturally as possible. I was really delighted with the results of my non surgical face lift. My friends couldn’t tell I’d had anything done. All they said was how well I looked!Thank you Mr Downie
(non surgical face lift)
From the offset when I came for my consultation for rhinoplasty surgery Mr Downie was very welcoming and extremely professional. He explained the procedure in simple easy to understand terms which put me at ease having a good understanding of the procedure, as well as any realistic risks and complications that can arise from having any type of surgery.
I am now roughly 9 months post rhinoplasty and there is no visible scaring or swelling to be seen. Mr Downie has been incredibly realistic throughout the whole process and has given me a rhinoplasty that is completely in keeping with my facial features for a very natural look.
Overall I couldn't be happier with the professionalism and the results Mr Downie has given me and I would not think twice about recommending him for anyone who is looking into rhinoplasty surgery.
(non surgical face lift)
After considerable research I decided Mr Downie was the surgeon for my facelift.
My consultation with Mr Downie was very comprehensive. He talked me through the process from start to finish and aftercare. Throughout the whole process, Mr Downie was helpful, supportive and kept me very well informed about my progress. I am absolutely over the moon with my results ! I am receiving so many compliments from family, friends and clients.
No need to go anywhere else when you have a five star surgeon in Scotland ! I would highly recommend him.
A very, very, very happy customer.
I am very happy with the treatment given to me by Mr Downie and his team from my initial consultation to my post-operative check-up. Mr Downie listened to what my hopes and expectations were of the rhinoplasty surgery and discussed what could be achieved.
On operation day, Mr Downie was friendly and professional, settling all of my last minute nerves. Mr Downie provided me with the appropriate aftercare information and the results of my surgery were largely evident upon my six-week check-up. Both Mr Downie and myself were pleased with the outcome and the healing after six short weeks. Now nine-weeks on, I continue to see progress as my nose continues to heal and I am over the moon.
I cannot thank Mr Downie enough for giving me the nose that I have always wanted and providing me with an excellent care experience. I would recommend Mr Downie to anyone who is looking to have rhinoplasty surgery!
I was very nervous about my lower face lift; if I was to choose the wrong surgeon it could go horribly wrong, but I did my research and kept hearing Mr Downie’s name and excellent reputation.
Now, thanks to Mr Downie, I feel fantastic and my confidence is through the roof. I don't look like someone who had surgery; I look like someone who has spent a month in a spa. My unsolicited advice is to get your face done because once your face is looking fabulous you really won't care about anything else. It's the best money I've ever spent.
From my first meeting with Mr Downie I felt instantly at ease, he was really welcoming and down to earth. He asked me lots of questions about what I wanted as well as set my expectations about potential risks. I left his office feeling ready to go ahead with the surgery after 10 years of being afraid to take the plunge.
On the day of surgery Mr Downie was incredibly attentive before and after the surgery, I was blown away by the level of care provided and his dedication to making sure I was doing ok. He was checking up on me right up until I left the hospital to go home. He is a genuinely caring person.
I am now a month post surgery and couldn’t be happier with my results. I can’t believe how natural I look and there was very little pain. Mr Downie’s attention to detail and really understanding what I wanted have given me the natural, bump free nose I have dreamed of all my life. Its amazing what this surgery has done for my confidence. I cannot recommend or thank Mr Downie enough.
Having had two Rhinoplasty procedures previously that had some defects, I put my trust into Mr Downie - who from our first consultation I immediately had a great feeling about. I am no longer insecure about my side profile which I have been since I can remember! My nose and previous rhinoplasty procedures had left me very insecure and I hated looking in the mirror. I am a little over 10 weeks post op and I am absolutely in love with results. I have so much more confidence and I can honestly say that this has reflected on my everyday life. Dr. Downie and his staff were absolutely amazing and I had great post op care - my recovery was a breeze considering I also had a skull graft to obtain the best results and correct the previous surgeries. I have the perfect nose that I have always wanted and I am so unbelievably thankful to Dr. Downie.
I would rate my consultation experience as more than satisfactory it was excellent and helped put my mind regarding procedure at ease straight away. The post-operative care I received was also excellent, I felt supported throughout my recovery. I am more than satisfied with my results following procedure I wish I done it years ago as it has gave me a massive confidence boost. I am forever grateful to Jeff.
I am over the moon with the results of my procedures. I’m told by my family that its taken years off me! I was hoping for a ‘refreshed’ look and that’s exactly what I’ve got, although the end result has far exceeded my expectations.
From the first consultation through to the final one, I found Mr Downie explained things thoroughly to me and put me at ease on the morning of the procedures. I have been very happy with all aspects of the experience including pre and post-operative care and would highly recommend him to anyone considering this.
(face lift, neck liposuction and upper eyelid blepharoplasties)
My entire experience from the initial consultation, to arranging the procedure right through to my last consultation has been nothing short of amazing. Mr Downie thoroughly explained the procedure and answered any questions or concerns I had and I am over the moon with my final results.
I was very happy and would highly recommend Mr Downie to anyone getting a MACS lift. My recovery was good and there was no pain, just some swelling for a few weeks. I got the face lift in September 2021 and you cannot even notice scarring, so no one in my work knew - they just said your looking well! I feel better and more confident now for my age, thanks to Mr Downie.
I was absolutely delighted with everything Mr Downie did, from my initial consultation to the result now 3 months on. I am extremely happy and would highly recommend Mr Downie to anyone. I had no discomfort at all after the operation, just couldn’t see very well without my contact lenses in , but no pain and would do it again in a minute.
(face lift and upper eyelid surgery)
After doing some research on surgeons within West of Scotland for blepharoplasty, I decided to book a consultation with Mr Jeff Downie.
I was completely put at ease by his friendly and professional manner. Everything was explained to me clearly and concisely regarding all aspects of surgery and post surgery. I am absolutely delighted with the results and as was told, absolutely no pain whatsoever both during the operation or throughout the recovery period.
Mr Downie did a fantastic job! He was extremely kind and professional throughout the entire process and thanks to him I now feel so much more confident in myself. Straight after the operation I was able to see a difference, my nose was swollen however I was still over the moon with the results! Everyone involved was extremely friendly and helped me with whatever I needed. My recovery time was surprisingly quick and the swelling went down a just couple of days after the procedure. Thanks again to Mr Downie for everything he has done for me I would highly recommend him in future!
I had a nodular BCC removed from my upper eyelid in September by Mr Downie as an outpatient. The BCC was gone but left extra skin folds which I felt was noticeable and made my eyes uneven. Thus, the upper eyelid blepharoplasties procedure. The consultation process with Mr Downie was courteous and factual which eased any foolish anxieties I was feeling. During post-operative care, everyone was caring and approachable. I would have taken off immediately after the procedure but was made to feel worthy and to relax. It was reassuring to see Mr Downie before I left and the nurse removing my stitches said Mr Downie did lovely stitching. All positive comments were welcome! Regarding the results, I am delighted. I feel the result is in keeping with my features and exactly what I wanted as I did not want to look overdone or having had work done. I would not hesitate in contacting Mr Downie for other procedures because of this positive experience.
(Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasties)
With regards to the consultation process, I was apprehensive about getting the surgery incase the change would be too drastic & obvious. I was also anxious about having both nostrils packed & not being able to breathe out of my nose post surgery. Mr Downie reassured me and put me at ease. He made me feel confident about going ahead with it as he took on board what I was hoping to achieve and gave me a realistic view of what was achievable.
Post operative care was great, everyone was very attentive and happy to answer my questions. I really did not like both of my nostrils packed but I know it was just part of the process that was required. It was difficult trying to sleep for a week as my mouth got dry however it was worth it for the results. I didn’t really feel any pain at all post surgery, maybe just a little pressure. It was mostly just uncomfortable having both nostrils completely blocked. Once the packing started to dissolve & I was able to breathe out of my nose then I could actually sleep. From then on the recovery was easy.
I’m am absolutely delighted with the results, there are massive improvements in the appearance. My nose is perfectly straight now & looks so much better than before. Mr Downie corrected my deviated septum which now looks much better & functions far more than before. Previously I couldn’t breathe properly out of the right side, this has improved & I think it will keep improving as the internal swelling goes down.
Overall I’m delighted with the outcome of my surgery. I almost didn’t go ahead as mentioned I was worried about my nose being packed & not being able to breathe out of my nose during recovery. I am so glad I went ahead, the not being able to breathe was very uncomfortable but it was not nearly as bad as I had expected.
Mr Downie is incredibly talented & did an excellent job.
The entire process from the consultation to the end was a very positive experience, Dr Downie was very assuring, very comforting and very competent. The surgery went very well, I just went into the clinical theatre and had my anaesthetic induction and the next thing I know the surgery was already done and it wasn’t at all painful, not even during recovery. I left the hospital the other day and had a speedy recovery. The result was nice and most importantly it gave me a good smile, and that’s the most important thing to me.
I highly rate Mr Downie. Prior to my appointment Mr Downie was recommended to me from three different surgeons.
I had two rhinoplasties previously which had been unsuccessful. Therefore, I was considered a complex case. I was extremely nervous to undergone a further procedure. At my initial consultation Mr Downie listened to my medical history and put me at ease. He fully explained the procedure and answered all my questions clearly.
On the day of surgery, I had a relaxing experience and was seen by Mr Downie prior to and after surgery. I have had several follow up appointments which I have found to be excellent.
I would highly recommend Mr Downie. Rhinoplasty is a specialist area and Mr Downie was an expert. I would not trust anyone else.
