Louis E. Costa, MD Reviews (88)

Neck Lift

Dr. Costa and his team were amazing. They prepared me appropriately and were readily available if I needed them.

I appreciate that Dr. Costa had done his homework. He knew who I was, what my medical history was and he even knew my husband's name.

Face Lift

I appreciate the care and professionalism provided by the doctors and staff during my consultation.

Neck Lift

Everyone was very kind and I am still healing but am 95 percent happy right now!

Chin Surgery

Dr. Costa was very informative and personable. He answered all my questions and fears. He was very reassuring and confident in his ability. I was very impressed with his experience and knowledge.

Eyelid Surgery

From the moment I entered the office until I left, the experience was extreemly professional. The office is immaculate , the staff warm and friendly and the surgeon kind and thorough. I was consulting to have a blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery). The physician and staff did not try to engage me in considering any other services than what I came for.

Neck Lift

Dr. Costa answered all of my questions and was not rushed at all in detailing the procedures I was interested in.


From the consultation to surgery date and follow up appointments, everything was very pleasant. Procedures were described, Dr Costa didn't try to talk me into more than what I felt I needed., things were described in detail, questions were answered pre and post surgery. Dr Costa spent a lot of time with us during the consultation and we didn't feel rushed at all. I liked that the nurse called daily the first 5 days post surgery. Recovery was very much as it had been explained to me. I am very pleased with my results thus far!

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Costa was very professional. He was detailed and answered all questions.

Neck Lift

The office staff and Dr. Costa were very willing to take as much time as I needed for the consultation.

Face Lift

Dr. Costa spent 1 hour explaining how, what and why he would perform the procedures he would perform. He was personable and answered all my questions. Looking forward to booking an appointment. Trying to work it out with my schedule.

Neck Lift

Dr. Costa called me personally because he couldn't be in the office for my one week follow up. I so very much appreciated that because I was very nervous about him not seeing me and telling me everything was ok and normal. The nurse had sent him pictures so he was able to see what I looked like.

Neck Lift

Staff is very friendly and Dr. Costa was lovely. Took his time, and seemed genuinely interested in personally helping me. He also engenders a lot of confidence. I am excited (and of course nervous) about my surgery!
