Louis P. Bucky, MD, FACS Reviews (171)

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.


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.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Bucky told me that my results would be amazing. I believed him whole heatedly because I have seen his results over and over again. I felt confident after I left that my life was going to change for the better and that is exactly what happened. He delivered.

Breast Augmentation

I was extremely nervous about having my procedure done but the staff made my experience excellent and comforting. From my first consultation to my surgery check in and most importantly the results. I couldn't be happier! I'm so glad to decided to go with Dr. Bucky!

Umbilical Hernia Repair

Long time patient and would never trust my cosmetic procedures with anyone else. Dr. Bucky is highly skilled, an artist with a charismatic personality. His confidence and team surrounding him are top notch. All questions are answered and I was completely comfortable post pre and post operatively. I cannot say enough about Dr. Bucky and trust him completely with myself and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Face Lift

I had seen two other doctors before seeing Dr. Bucky. Apparently, I saved the best for last. After speaking with him I felt confident that I was with the right doctor. Also, my husband had been to the dermatologist and asked her, if she was to get a face lift, where would she go. She answered emphatically, “ask any dermatologist and they will tell you, hands down, Dr Bucky.”

Breast Implant Removal

All my questions were answered. Dr. Bucky very thorough! The staff is amazing!!! Very friendly and helpful!!

Breast Implant Revision

Wonderful experience, Dr. Bucky and Kate took their time with me, explained all of the details of my procedure. I felt very at ease and comfortable while I was there for my consult.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bucky and his team were extremely educated and experienced with their surgical advice. They made me feel comfortable and confident with my decisions. The technology to assist envisioning the suggested breast size was very impressive and extremely helpful.

Face Lift

Dr. Bucky is a true professional that is very descriptive and detailed about communicating effectively my wants, needs and expectations. Even though I was nervous about my procedures both Dr. Bucky and his team comforted me all the way. My outcome was above and beyond what I expected and I look and feel so much younger.

Face Lift

Until I saw Dr. Bucky’s work on two women I know I was not going to have a face lift. So glad I did! Love the result! Dr. Bucky and his staff are stellar! Thank you for all you do.
