Earlobe Repair

Great experience all around - thank you!

Face Lift

I am very pleased with my lower face lift, neck lift and brow lift - the results are very natural and gave me the results I was hoping for. Dr. Costa is a great cosmetic surgeon and his staff are professional and helpful. I stayed overnight in one of the guest suites after my surgery and it was comfortable and convenient. I researched cosmetic surgeons for a year prior to my surgery and has several consultations and and so happy with my choice!

Face Lift

Very welcoming doctor and staff. Made me feel at ease.

Eyelid Surgery

As an out of town resident the virtual call gave the convenience of talking the call from home. Even though this was the second consult for the same procedure... Dr. Costa took his time and was very thorough in his assessment and explanation of the selected procedures. I look forward to scheduling my surgeries.

Face Lift

Having a facelift was not at the forefront of my mind, so when my daughter came in for a consult, I decided to make an appointment just to inquire. Within three weeks my surgery was scheduled and completed. The entire office is kind and accommodating, and Dr. Costa visually indicated what he thought would be the best approach to a younger look.

Face Lift

I thought the results hit all my key goals: looks natural, friends tend to ask if I've been on vacation, look about ten years younger (I think). The results was #1. Beyond that I was especially pleased with the professionalism and support of everyone on the team from Dr. Costa on down.


Dr. Costa is a highly sought after, top notch plastic surgeon. He showed pictures of before and after surgeries of previous clients. He took his time in telling me what he could do for me.

Mini Face Lift

Dr. Costa is the Ultimate Professional and is about Excellence in all of his interactions. Dr. Costa spent time asking me questions and truly listening to my concerns and I appreciated that so...much. I came away feeling that he truly understood my concerns and he explained so meticulously what he thought that I needed largely through visual examples. His visual examples of where they were and where I am truly helped me understand my Before and After. Thorough, Professional, Friendly, Articulate, Great Listener all describe Dr. Costa. I highly recommend him and will continue to do so.

Face Lift

Gained appreciation for experience level. Surprised by how much time he spent with me. Not rushed at all.


Good surgical results. Being able to stay in one of the suites before the surgery relieved a lot of stress. Kindness, skill and efficiency of Dr. Costa and all of the staff was wonderful. I've worried about my nose for literally 50 years and now I feel so much better about it.

Face Lift

Dr. Costa and his staff were outstanding. They took great care of me and call me often to check on me. They really care about you and they do an outstanding job on your face.

Chin Surgery

I had jowls and droopy skin on my lower face and neck. Now my skin is tight and I can see a prominent chin once again. I am happy with my results.

Face Lift

Everyone is so helpful & I like the homey atmosphere.

Face Lift

He can fix.

Eyelid Surgery

The offices were very clean and well appointed. The office staff were efficient and helpful. Dr. Costa was amazingly knowledgeable, caring and kind. The atmosphere was one that instilled total confidence.


Dr. Costa spoke directly to my daughter to better understand how she felt and what her desire was to entertain rhinoplasty. He encouraged her to speak honestly and openly about her nose and developed a connection by acknowledging her feelings, explaining the process and providing insight on the final outcome. She felt comfortable with the procedure and excited about it.

Face Lift

Dr. Costa and staff were professional, caring, thorough and kind and informative! I felt cared for and safe:)

Face Lift

Everyone was wonderful. Dr. Costa was very kind and explained things well.

Face Lift

From the very first meeting with Dr. Costa during the consultation, he was very kind, patient and answered all my questions. I was referred to Dr. Costa by my dermatologist as the only doctor she would recommend. I felt well taken care of during the surgery and afterwards as well. [Single best thing is...] The results! The results are fantastic and natural looking.
