Louis P. Bucky, MD, FACS Reviews (180)

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Bucky is a magician! His warm personality, clinical expertise and professionalism makes him a pleasure to deal with. He and his staff always make me feel so comfortable. He was able to make me feel like my old self again. I’m back to wearing bodysuits, skinny jeans and two piece bathing suits!

Breast Implant Removal

Very satisfied with outcome of surgery. Also, exceptional staff support made the experience one of a kind.

Face Lift

My problem areas, eyes and chin are no longer looking saggy.

Face Lift

At the last visit , in early March, I saw Dr Bucky for evaluation post surgery of face lift. We were both very happy with results and my next appoint was expected to be end of April. Although due to covid19 I guess we will postponed.


Dr. Bucky addressed all of my concerns. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure & what to expect post-op. I came away from the consult feeling very confident in his ability to correct my problem.

Face Lift

I have great faith in Dr. Bucky's skills. The entire office is highly professional, and I always love having Valerie there, too! The results are excellent, very natural. Initially, I had difficulties with healing, but extra care was given, and all is well. I would highly recommend Dr. Bucky for surgery and his office. I like using the hospital and I had excellent nursing help. The outcome is a natural face lift, not extreme, and I feel more confident about my appearance.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bucky and his team all took the time to get to know me and understand my concerns. There was no up-selling of services, I got clear candid feedback, recommendations and advice.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bucky was so kind and I felt truly safe in his company. He also gave me a perfect result, better than I could have possibly imagined! Everyone in his office was so kind and happy, I felt totally comfortable asking them anything. The entire experience was wonderful. [Single best thing is...] The results. My scars are nearly invisible and my breasts are perky and large without being obnoxious. Nobody even realizes they are fake until I tell them.

Face Lift

[Single best thing is...] Attention to details of care such as facial messages to reduce swelling. Result was a great improvement but realistic for my age (78). All staff was supportive and knowledgeable.

Breast Lift

I had a very easy recovery and no issues after the surgery. My scars are already largely faded after about 2 months.


The bump was removed but I feel that the rest of my nose should've been smoothed out more. It doesn't look straight to me, the way that I wanted it.


Always great to have such a detailed consultation. I walked out knowing all my options and the costs associated with them.

Breast Augmentation

I love Kate and Dr. Bucky. Kate is so knowledgeable with everything and everyone in the office is so friendly and welcoming. Dr. Bucky really gets into all the details and is definitely an artist!

Breast Augmentation

Very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was welcoming at office and made me feel comfortable. Hospital experience was wonderful too. They took good care

Fat Transfer

Dr. Bucky was able to fix a terrible adhesion on my left breast that resulted from having my implants removed 2 years ago by a different surgeon.

Tummy Tuck

[Single best thing is...] I look so much better! I am very happy with the results. As with any cosmetic surgery, there is apprehension and worry, but now, after only 3 months post surgery, I can't believe how much better I look and feel and how short the recovery time actually was. Dr. Bucky's staff prepared me by sharing information and discussing the procedures so I was prepared. They were always accessible for questions and offered practicle advice that was sincere and caring. I am extremely pleased with the results!

Breast Augmentation

Pre-Surgery directions clear and organized, surgery day calm and on time, post-op also organized and clear.

Breast Augmentation

The staff made me feel very comfortable and made sure to explain everything in detail. When I did call with questions they always promptly returned my call. Dr Bucky is the best!! Always gives you he’s honest opinion and also made me feel comfortable making my decision. Had excellent results every time. Would never want to go to any other physician.

Neck Lift

The nurse, Kate, is personable, professional, knowledgeable and thorough. The anesthesiologist was welcoming and skillful. The information provided about my upcoming procedure answered all my questions.
