"Did my consultation last week and it was a great experience from the second I walked into the office. Very nice clean and quite office, staff was amazing and Dr. Costa was very friendly, and knowledgeable. Will update if/when I actually have my surgery completed."



"Consultation review: Wonderful Bedside Manner - Very thorough and knowledgeable. He spent time with me and explained everything and answered my questions. I’ve only had a consultation, but looking forward to scheduling my procedure. Implants made in the USA! That was what I wanted to hear."



"AMAZING Results! 360 Lipo, BBL & Labiaplasty - Dr. Costa and his team at Platinum Plastic Surgery all get 5 stars!! Dr. Costa understood my hope and goals for all 3 procedures (360 Lipo, BBL and Labiaplasty) and the results were beyond satisfactory! I am amazed on how he was able to sculpt my body so perfectly. He is an surgeon-artist! My goal was to have an hour-glass waist, a tight tummy, with a mini plumped booty and since I was already having surgery in that region, I decided to have the labiaplasty done as well. He removed the fat from my back, sides and tummy and put it in my booty. He also sculpted my stomach so I look more fit. He listens to the needs/wants of his patients and is realistic with the outcome. He is incredibly nice with bedside manners. His team are all so sweet, kind and thoughtful!The entire experience with Dr. Costa and his team was a great experience!!"
