Louis P. Bucky, MD, FACS Reviews (67)

Breast Augmentation

I was hesitant to have plastic surgery, although it is something I have wanted for a couple of years. I was referred to Dr. Bucky by 2 friends. I am so happy with my decision to go with Dr. Bucky and to go through with the surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and was a pleasure to work with. He listened to my wants and needs and I felt like I was in great hands. His whole staff is so friendly and I felt very taken care of. I felt extremely comfortable with Dr.Bucky. He exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bucky truly is an artist. He proportioned my breast aug to truly fit ME. At prior consults, I felt as if the doctor wasn’t listening to me. He Listened. I’m so glad I chose him....my breasts are perfect! I have more confidence. I feel more ‘womanly’, and definitely more sexy!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bucky and his staff was very informative and and made me feel comfortable from the minute I walked in the office for my consultation. Dr. Bucky listened to me and understood what I wanted I felt very at ease talking to him. Day if surgery I felt I was in good hands and chose the right surgeon. I’ve had 2 procedures done by Dr. Bucky both times I felt highly satisfied if I ever needed any other procedures done I go back to him. The staff is kind and friendly. I lost my body at 22 years old when I had my last child, i was never comfortable with my stomach I would never wear a bathing suit without cover up, i would never undress in front of my husband or even allow him in the bathroom while I showered, I had a tummy tuck by another surgeon and I was not satisfied he didn’t listen and he got it wrong, a year later I found Dr. Bucky by searching on the web I was able to schedule an appointment and went in for my first consultation, I knew from my first meeting with him and his staff that he listened and he understood. I’m now happy to say I can wear not only a one piece, but even a modest 2 piece. My money was well spent and I am happy with my results.

Face Lift

A prior non-invasive procedure by another surgeon from a different practice to lift and tighten skin in my chin area left me with hollow, sagging jowls. My visit to Dr. Bucky turned my unfortunate situation into the most positive and rewarding outcome. His innovative use of fat grafting in the problem areas coupled with his surgical expertise to lift the lower portions of my face and neck yielded a beautiful result. I am thrilled beyond measure with my natural and youthful appearance. I’ve never received so many compliments in my life, all from friends and family who remain unaware I ever had anything done. I am so happy to have put my trust and confidence in the hands of such a competent surgeon. Thank you Dr. Bucky!

Face Lift

Because my confidence level has been fully restored!My self-esteem has returned.

Breast Augmentation

My experience with Dr Bucky and his team was nothing less than extraordinary! From the moment I walked into Dr. Bucky’s practice, I knew I had come to the right place. Dr Bucky and his team were as professional as can be from my first consultation to the days, weeks, and months following my breast augmentation. Highly recommend trusting this practice with any and all procedures, as there is no one better! My results were even better than expected.

Breast Augmentation

Dr Bucky and his staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and knowledgeable. They made sure I was comfortable with all aspects of my procedure, and I couldn’t be happier with my outcome. [Single best thing is...] How comfortable you feel in Dr Buckys office

Follow-up

Dr. Bucky and all of his associates are very friendly and hospitable and extremely talented in their respective roles. My nurse, Valerie has always taken such loving care of me through the whole process of my surgery. I would highly recommend him to my dear friends and associates. His aesthetic sense coupled with his surgical skills is outstanding! He has achieved the most natural looking outcome for me! This procedure has increased my self esteem and confidence and I feel younger!?

Neck Lift

Dr. Bucky is always informative and thorough evaluation and with his discussion. He never rushes you and answers questions/concerns with personalized interest.

Tummy Tuck

Wonderful!!! Dr.Bucky and his staff are attentive, empathetic and friendly! Very down to earth, efficient, really can not say enough good things!!!

Breast Implant Removal

I had breast implant removal due to many years of encapsulation. I had wanted the implants removed for ten+ years & had consultations w/three different surgeons but the staff at Dr. Bucky's was the best I had encountered. I felt secure with Dr. Bucky after meeting him & confident he understood my concerns. I no longer have hard rock breasts & I really love feeling the REAL ME. Granted my breasts were never very big to begin with & are not now but just having the REAL ME back is worth the surgery. In fact I wish I had never had implants to begin with. They make mammograms pretty tough. Finding comfortable bras has always been hard for me; I don't like them much at all. I am happy with myself for making this big decision. My family is happy for me too. . Dr. Bucky's staff were highly professional, answered all my questions & concerns. The procedure itself was staffed by very competent/caring people/staff. They again answered any of my concerns. The anesthetist was a voice of calm & competence which made me feel very secure in my surgery. She was awesome.The front desk at the facility was professional & helpful as well. I had a very positive experience. I am happy with my results.

Breast Augmentation

I saw Dr Bucky on time and he was caring and efficient. He answered my questions.

Face Lift

I look so much younger and so much better. I’m not self-conscious about the saggy skin on my face and neck anymore. I no longer hide from getting my picture taken. Everything went perfectly with my surgery. Best decision I’ve ever made to do this surgery.

Breast Lift

The entire office staff is very friendly. I also appreciate that I don't have a wait time like many offices do. Rachel was the nurse who did my follow up and she was very nice.

Breast Augmentation

Every appointment has been amazing

Follow-up

Love Kate. She's wonderful. Informative and kind.

Follow-up

I really like Dr Bucky and the office staff is great. The wait was too long however

Other

My scarring is bad on my breast’s but I don’t think there really is anything that could’ve been done differently and that he tried his best to satisfy my concerns, I still think Dr. Bucky is the best and recommend him to everyone. As far as my ear surgery unfortunately after my second surgery my one ear still sticks out and would still like my ear lobes smaller because I still after surgery do not feel comfortable enough to wear earrings.. I would still have procedures done by Dr. Bucky and only Dr. Bucky because I trust him and truly believe he is the best!

Face Lift

Well, Dr. Bucky's reputation precedes him so there's that . . . beyond this, the professionalism exhibited by each and every member of his staff with whom I came into contact was a delight. These are people who clearly know their work and the inner workings of a mind which is contemplating taking a step such as I am at the moment -- having a facelift. Kate explained thoroughly and perfectly every element of the surgery to me, with the use of before/after photos of other patients and I learned so very much about how Dr. Bucky works. As an important aside, the general atmosphere among the staff was that it is a family into which I could be accepted and there's really no price for that when considering a surgical procedure such as this. I am in the process of raising the money for my surgery and intend to schedule it as soon as I can.
