Ratings for Dr. Mary Powers
I am a recent patient of Dr. Mary Powers and I want to report the exquisite care I was given before, during and after my surgery. She did many small procedures that added up to taking 10-15 years off my appearance. Dr. Powers has restraint, which is terrifically important with plastic surgery as there is no going back! As an artist in her own right she is a seeker of beauty in all walks of life and brings that sensitivity to her practice. She studies each patient with the eye of an artist. As a woman she is a caretaker and gives her patients that extra amount that goes so far. She is kind and gentle and always they’re for you. Her practice is focused and she is a dedicated physician. She helps educate you beforehand as to the realities of what is aesthetically right and achievable for you. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Grateful Patient
I recently had Juviderm injections for under my eyes, my "marionette lines", and around my lips. Dr. Powers is not only a plastic surgeon, but a true artist well honed in her craft and she is truly gifted. She has also done breast augmentation and neck liposuction on me, with excellent results. She is caring and professional, with a gentle touch. I constantly get compliments that I look much younger than I really am; I owe it all to Dr Powers, she's amazing and I am planning to get more work done. Love her! She really is the best out there, no doubt about it.
I was given the greatest gift of being referred to Dr Powers by a friend 13 years ago. Over the years I have had breast augmentation, liposuction, blepharoplasty, and she is the only person i trust to do my fillers and Botox. I continue to follow and see Dr Powers from Canada because the results are always better than I could dream possible. My greatest compliments are the fact that people think I have aged gracefully and that no one can tell I have had work done. She is the definition of a specialist and her skills and ability to visualize the changes your looking for are what make the results so natural. This is the type of physician I have entrusted to care for my family and friends. Working with Dr Powers is so easy because she cares and you can trust your results will be beautiful. Thank you Dr Powers for all your work. I am proud to show off your talent. Meeting you has made me a better person inside and out:) !!!!!
I only have superlative words about doctor Powers. She saved me. After I was butchered by a plastic surgeon (I will leave out the name) during breast implants procedure, I went to a second plastic surgeon (also leaving out the name) who performed two unsuccessful surgeries trying to reconstruct the damaged done by the first surgeon. Incapable of reconstructing my breasts he brought in Dr. Powers – introducing her as the doctor who will know what to do to reconstruct my breasts. As a result of the damage that was done previously to my breasts she had to performed a few surgeries but now I can say that I am really happy with the outcome. From the beginning I felt that she cared and she wanted to help me. She is very thoughtful of your needs and she treats you not as a patient but as a friend she wants to help. She called me every day after the surgeries and even after many months from the surgeries just to make sure that everything is ok. Her stuff is also helpful and caring. Dr. Powers is a great surgeon, she knows her craft so I recommend her without any hesitation.
Why did I wait so long? Fear I guess--but Dr Powers and her staff made me feel so comfortable and cared for that I lost my fear, had my surgery and haven't looked back since! My EE's are now small D's/full C's--but off my tummy/chest skin! My breast haven't been like this since teenage years and pre-babies! Much, much gratitude to Dr Powers and staff as well as the hospital staff who made the journey so positive and memorable--literally turning back time for my breasts. Now I can focus on other parts that time and gravity have also affected! ; ) THANK YOU ALL, ESPECIALLY DR POWERS!!!
WOW WOW!!!!!! I can honestly say from the begging to the end of this service I was completely satisfied and made to feel not only comfortable but part of the family at Dr Powers office. I was greeted and help by Mary's staff with caring and kindness. Then once in for the consult Mary listened to everything I had to say and all my concerns paying complete attention to me and waiting till I was finished to explain everything that was going to be done. The work I had done with Dr Mary Powers was rhinoplasty, chin implant and temporal brow lift. the changes I wanted were very minimal I wanted to look like me without the flaws that I can see. She did just that I look fresh and amazing I love the work that was done and will go to Dr Powers for any future work. Lets talk about after the surgery Dr Powers personally called every day for two weeks checking in on me. WOW RIGHT the doctor called not the front desk. And since, she still texts or calls me to check in. I love her and what she does. I recommend her to everyone...
Dr. Powers is the consummate professional and is outstanding in what she does. I had two procedures done in the same year and was exceptionally pleased with the results. She is kind, compassionate, caring, and really listens to her patients needs. She is an angel in my eyes. Her office staff is marvelous and always pleasant and prompt. The follow-up care is outstanding and Dr. Powers goes above and beyond. I would not hesitate going back for any future procedures and have referred several people to her. It is hard in this day and age to find a trustworthy physician, but Dr. Powers embodies this trait and so much more. I am so grateful and blessed to have her as my surgeon!
Dr. Powers performed a very bad double mastectomy on me instead of a breast reduction. She then bullied, intimidated and threatened me because I was a Medicare patient saying that if I expected Medicare to pay for implants that I was in for a surprise. I am so badly scarred that there is nothing to work with to even do a reconstruction. This woman destroyed my body! She lied to me by showing me pictures of previous breast reduction surgeries that she had performed, promising to make me beautiful, smaller breasts. She hacked me to pieces in such a bad way that I can only assume that she was practicing on me and had never done a successful reduction surgery before me. I caution anyone reading all of these other glowing reviews. I was left devastated by this woman.
Dr. Mary Powers's response
We are very sorry to read in a posted review how you have felt. We would have been happy to help you as we only wished you well. Sometimes there is a difference between a patient's perception of events and the evidence of successful treat results. Many age-related changes occur to the body with passage of time. Examples of changes are significant weight gain or weight loss which will affect breast size, shape, and volume due to the fat content of breasts. Our patients consistently refer and return to Dr. Powers because she takes the time to learn what her patients seek in cosmetic, or medically necessary, care. She takes into consideration the achievable results and the nature of medical science. Additionally, we take all our patients' privacy seriously and therefore will not respond to this, or any other posted reviews, with factual information that would allow readers to see through its hollow nature. We recommend that the readers of these reviews evaluate Dr. Powers' care and surgical skills for themselves by making an appointment to meet and talk with her. We wish you health and happiness for the future.

My name is Julie and I cannot say enough great things about Dr Mary Powers and her entire staff. From the moment I walked in the door I felt so welcome and happy to be there. The care I received both before my surgery and after was outstanding. Dr. Powers called me every day to check on me and even after 3 weeks was still calling to see how I was doing. I could not recommend Dr Powers and her entire staff enough. I feel fantastic and so happy with the results. Dr. Powers is very funny and makes you feel like you have know her forever as soon as you meet her. Please, if you are thinking about having any kind of plastic surgery done, call Dr. Powers, you will not regret it.
I highly recommend Dr. Powers and have.... to family & friends!! I had a very good experience with Dr.Powers doing my Breast Augmentation. She is highly professional, explains thoroughly, follow up after surgery by her calling personally to see if I had any questions or concerns and wonderful staff! I had a previous surgery with a "Beverly Hills" Doctor which I felt like I was just another number, this was not the case with Dr. Powers!! Highly recommend her!! :)
