5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Exceeded my Expectations--love my New Shape

Last fall following the achievement of my weight loss goal, Dr. Christopher Costanzo, MD performed a tummy tuck and breast lift on my sadly, sagging parts. The surgery was quite unremarkable as far as surgery goes--the outcome was anything but unremarkable--it was dazzling. His vision for me was far better that my vision for myself. (I had a large, ugly vertical scar from an exploratory...

Breast Augmentation - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had a breast augmentation Thursday with Dr.Costanzo he's of Lynn rd. next to hospital. Him, his staff and surgical team are amazing, I never felt pressured, rushed or like they where irritated with me asking question and I asked a lot and called with a lot of questions. The pain for me was very minimal and wow they look great and it's been only 3 days. Of course yeah I had pain but nothing...

I Love my Boobs! - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had implants and wanted them removed because I had boobs to begin with. The reason I got the implants in the first place was because I lost a lot of weight and my boobs shrunk. I decided I no longer wanted implants and just wanted them removed and a breast lift. I went to 3 different doctors for consultations...all with great reputations for being amazing with breasts. I decided on Dr....

42 Old, 1 Kid, Outer Thighs, Abdomen and Flanks - Thousand Oaks, CA

I scheduled my surgery for May 2nd with Dr. Christopher Costanzo and feel anxious! I don't have a great deal of time to recover and have to manage my 5 year old at the end of day 2. I hope it's not too much pain! I only have about 5 lbs to lose. I'm 132 and 5'6, just have fat pockets that are resistant to a very tight regimen of diet and exercise so I'm doing this!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Absolutely amazing!

After many years of wanting to get a Breast Augmentation I finally made the decision to get it done. After doing extensive research and visiting a few doctors I'm glad to say I chose to go to Dr. Costanzo. The entire staff are so friendly and helpful and made the entire experience amazing. At the consultation Dr. Costanzo gave me a lot of information and answered every question I had. The day...

I had an amazing experience!

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Costanzo and his staff. In 2006, he performed my breast reduction and lift and in 2016 I went back to him for my breast augmentation. It was very easy to talk to Dr. Costanzo about how I wanted my breasts to look and he exceeded my expectations. I love my new bigger, fuller breasts and he truly listened to all my wants and needs. I'm 5'0, 114 pounds...

PERFECT! I absolutely LOVE Dr. Costanzo and his whole team. Everyone becomes your family and makes you feel totally at home before you even make the decision to go with them. They make sure you feel comfortable enough to trust their decisions and advice before the procedure. The second I met Dr. Costanzo I knew he was my Doctor. I have the absolute best boobs I couldn't be happier! ...

Very grateful to have found Dr. Costanzo - Thousand Oaks, CA

I was referred to Dr. Costanzo by a friend and after reading other reviews I had high expectations and I am glad to say that not only were my expectations met but exceeded. Christina, Dr. Costanzo's Office Manager, hit the ball out of the park in terms of answering all my questions and let me tell you, I had a lot of questions. She was always quick to answer and I never felt like I was a...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

I can't stop SMILING

After researching extensively for a doctor who could preform a face/neck lift, I came across Dr. Costanzo's website. Going into my consultation appointment I became very nervous. The nerves vanished, because not only is the office beautiful but so are the staff. Holly(the front desk secretary) made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that I was in good hands. Soon after, talking with Dr....

Words can't say enough about this skilled doctor! - Thousand Oaks, CA

Caring, warm and professional doesn't come close to saying enough about this amazing doctor. After 3 prior consultations with other doctors my surgery was booked same day as my consult with Dr Constanzo. His staff is friendly and professional. Today was my 6 month re-check and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to returning for more self improvement!
