Louis E. Costa, MD Reviews (48)

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Costa listened to what I hoped to achieve and let me know what the results would be.....My appearance with eye and face lift is a better version of myself. The single best thing, that’s tough....but other than the answer would be The “personal care“. You stay over night after in a private apartment and for a week you receive daily calls to ask if you have questions or concerns.

Face Lift

From the moment I made the decision to move forward with the surgery until today, I've felt well taken care of and so happy with my results. Having heard of others, who went to different practices and saw imperfections in their results, I feel so fortunate to have had Dr. Costa perform such a delicate and important surgery. Within two weeks or less, I felt confident to be in public. Anyone in the medical profession that I shared my surgery story, couldn't get over the artistic abilities that Dr. Costa is blessed with.

Face Lift

Dr. Costa's work looks natural. The surgery was on time, and loved having the recovery suites in the same building. Trish was prompt answering questions prior to and after surgery. [Single best thing is...] The technique and skill level of Dr. Costa.
