About Irene Tower:

Dr. Irene Tower is a female cosmetic surgeon and an associate physician at Inland Cosmetic Surgery. She is a graduate from the Allegheny General Hospital Surgery residency program in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dr. Tower moved to Southern California and completed a fellowship in Cosmetic surgery with Dr Jacob Haiavy.

She was born in New Jersey to Romanian immigrant parents but was raised in Houston, Texas. Growing up, Dr. Tower enjoyed the arts and spent most of her days crafting, drawing or sculpting. Even though her family was certain she would enter the world of arts as a career, Dr Tower always dreamed of becoming a doctor when she was growing up.

After high school she went to The University of Texas where she graduated with honors with a bachelor of arts in biochemistry. She then received her medical degree from Texas Tech School of Medicine in Lubbock, Texas. It was here that she realized that she loved to work with her hands and was meant to be a surgeon.

Her new found passion took her across the country to Pittsburgh where she spent the next six years of surgical training at Allegheny General Hospital. Dr. Tower saw a variety of very difficult and extreme cases. With over 1,000 surgical cases completed in differing areas such as breast, abdomen, head and neck, Dr. Tower truly finished with a strong clinical and surgical skill set.

Within her training she was fortunate enough to work alongside Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgeon on complex abdominal cases. While working on reconstructing large abdominal wall defects Dr. Tower was inspired to enter the field of cosmetic surgery. Her time spent with this mentor showed her that the surgical field of cosmetic surgery could become her creative outlet by incorporating both her passion for art and cosmetic surgery.

She escaped the treacherous winters of Pittsburgh and moved here to Rancho Cucamonga with her two small children (3 years and 12 months) and husband to complete a fellowship in cosmetic surgery with Dr. Haiavy. After completing the fellowship, Dr. Tower was overjoyed to join the practice at Inland Cosmetic and work with such a well-respected and skilled surgeon, Dr. Jacob Haiavy.

As a female cosmetic surgeon, she honors the trust that patients must impart when choosing a surgeon to make them look and feel better. It is this trust that is constantly motivating her to continue to learn and be the best. Dr. Tower takes pride in being approachable, kind, and empathetic to all patients and their concerns. She always wants to make patients feel comfortable, like they are talking to an old friend.

Dr. Tower and her family feel right at home in Southern California. She is excited to be part of the Inland Cosmetic Surgery family and spending many more years in the beautiful sunshine of Southern California.

Irene Tower, MD Reviews (219)

Breast Augmentation

I visited multiple doctor offices for consultations and as soon as I sat down with Doctor Tower, I knew who I would be having surgery with. She made me feel so comfortable right away, listened to what I wanted, and then told me her opinion on the best options. Every other doctor I saw I walked out thinking, ”they didn’t even listen to what I wanted”. Before surgery, again, Dr. Tower came in, made me feel comfortable, and calmed my nerves.

Breast Augmentation

I was very pleased with the whole process. The entire staff was so friendly and made me feel very comfortable.

Breast Augmentation

Dr Tower and her staff were so kind and supportive throughout my entire procedure and took excellent care of me from start to finish. Dr. Tower made me feel comfortable every step of the way, helping me pick out my implants, reassuring me of size, giving me a kind smile day of surgery, and even being there during the shut down with FaceTime follow up consults to see how everything was healing and to answering any questions I may have. Thanks to Dr. Tower I feel beautiful and confident. I would say the best part about this experience was how safe I felt. I felt safe that Dr. Tower and her staff were going to be taking care of me. And I felt safe in the sense that Dr. Tower is an amazing surgeon and was going to make me feel and look beautiful.

Everyone at the office were so nice and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Tower was professional and very knowledgeable. Also when I had any questions or concerns she got back to me in a timely manner.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Irene Tower is professional, precise, and the most qualified surgeon I know. She takes her time, she is informative , she cares. I TRUST her ! That’s the most important part. You have to trust your surgeon. This is my second cosmetic procedure done by her gifted hands and she is definitely 5 star. Highly recommended !

Mommy Makeover

From the moment I walked into the doors for my initial consultation, to today (about 9 weeks out of surgery) my care has been better then I ever could have imagined. They are always available and super helpful. [Single best thing is...] My results. I never in a million years imagined results like what Dr. Tower has helped me achieve. I used to look in the mirror and cry. However, durring even the recovery process I've woken up every single day happy and soo excited and confident in my skin. It's pure bliss to be happy with yourself and Dr. Tower helped me achieve real happiness.

VASER Lipo

Dr. Tower was very informative on procedure and individualized everything. She never made me feel abandoned. She answered all my questions and always followed up with my care.

Tummy Tuck

[Single best thing is...] The after care has been more than expected. Dr. Tower made me feel comfortable about all the procedures. She was so professional. And my body is amazing!

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Tower is an amazing surgeon. I have minimal scarring and feel good about my results. [Single best thing is...] I had a breast reduction and lift. I didn’t want or need implants. My breasts look and feel great.

Breast Augmentation

For a first time breast augmentation with a lift, 650 implant was much too big for my body frame causing extreme back pain for 4 weeks. I feel I was overcharged for initial surgery. I Had to have large implants taken out a month later due to pain and sleepless nights from pain. At 2nd surgery Incorrect implant sizes were ordered as previously discussed in consult. It’s been 2 months since 2nd surgery. I have 2 breast that go outwards, right being the worst due to not tight enough capsules. I need a lift revision and capsules tightened. My right breast is much larger due to wrong size ordered then what was discussed at consult. I have had two 2nd opinions with other plastic surgeons (which dr tower is not) One in Newport Beach and other in Ontario. Both agree a third surgery will need to be Performed to revise lift and tighten both capsules. Both plastic surgeons agreed a 650 is much too large with a lift which was done during first surgery. I also learned Dr. Tower is a cosmetic surgeon and not a plastic surgeon.. I am currently in 20k debt with breast that look terrible. surgery to correct this mess is going to be 5-7k is in addition to 20k. I will not be going back to her.

Mommy Makeover

I was always ashamed of the way I looked and never let anyone see my body. Dr. Tower and staff treated me with such compassion that I felt so comfortable and not judged.

Liposuction

Not being happy with my results and being told that it'll cost me more money to try and get it right really upsets me! A patient/customer should be 100% happy with what they paid for especially with how expensive these procedures are.

Breast Lift

Very professional. Answered all my questions. Made me feel comfortable. It completely boosted my confidence.

Breast Lift

Dr. Tower and the entire staff, are amazingly knowledgeable, caring women who understands my cosmetic needs. I am currently healing from Lipo, fat transfer and breast lift. Dr. Tower has sculpted my body and so far I am extremely content with the results. This definitely is my one stop Cosmetic shop. Thank you.

Breast Implant Revision

Yes [highly satisfied]. Dr. Tower is amazing.

Liposuction

Dr. Tower is an amazing surgeon. I did my research on what I wanted to get done and went straight to her since she specializes in body contouring. She and all staff made me feel secure and comfortable before, during, and after my procedure. I HIGHLY recomend Dr. Tower and all staff at Inland Cosmetic Surgery <3 I very much appreciated the follow up texts to see how my recovery was going. And the response time when I was in pain they were able to see me right away. Everyone at Inland Cosmetic Surgery truly cares for their patients.
