Louise E. Costa, MD Reviews (36)

Face Lift

Dr. Costa and his staff are good listeners and answer questions with great knowledge and compassion. Talking about the procedures you might be considering are discussed in detail and Dr. Costa will always give you his best professional/expert advise on what you are inquiring about. Besides being a great surgeon, he is a great person looking out for your best interest.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Costa was very personable. The staff was very thorough.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Costa is very knowledgeable in his field and was very open and honest with me during our discussion. The entire practice staff that I cam into contact with were very kind and accommodating.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The staff could not have been more helpful and courteous.

Eyelid Surgery

The doctor was very honest to say that I didn’t need surgery as of now.

Pigmented Lesion Removal

Office staff professional, Dr .Costa outstanding!

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.

Face Lift

Technique - glad Costa used the deep plane approach where he could. Price - glad I wasn't sold other add on procedures such as fat grafting or skin resurfacing. Experience - felt confident because Costa had a long track record and he is focused on faces only. [Single best thing is...] wasn't oversold on the results.

Injectable Fillers

I was not highly satisfied because the virtual video didn't work.

Eyelid Surgery

After two months eyes look like they did ten years ago and can't see the scars. Great job. So pleased, Dr. Costa is awesome.

Scar Repair or Camouflage

Dr. Costa was very thorough with his examination and discussed the procedure as well as my options. He took time with me and was not rushed.

Eyelid Surgery

Professional staff. Dr. Costa is very personable.

Eyelid Surgery

1. Professionalism of all staff members, clear instructions, all expectations met. 2. Follow up after surgery for the first few days was excellent .3. Lack of any pain and very little discomfort. 4. The end result!!

Forehead Lift

I have a scar under right eye, on track for healing process.

Face Lift

Once some time had passed following my surgery my new face surfaced. It looked like me, but no longer did I have the cords under my chin. The jowls were gone. Dr. Costa gave me what I wanted. A younger tighter neck and face.

Face Lift

Everyone was highly professional; Dr. Costa spends quality time with the patient. Tricia wonderful with follow-up. Even with COVID, things handled well.

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.
