I wanted to write this post about Dr. Dennis Bucko to repudiate any negative comments that might have appeared on this site. I recently underwent a "Belladerma Lift" from Dr. Bucko, and couldn't be happier with the results. About 22 years ago, he did some cosmetic surgery for my son, who was 16 at the time. My son was very pleased with the outcome, which still looks great today. So, when I decided to get the "Belladerma Lift", I chose Dr. Bucko. Over the past several years, I have had some Belladerma peels at his office, and while he never did any work on me, I was impressed with his competent and friendly staff, and I was sure he would do great job at a reasonable price. During my initial consultation with him, I felt a little intimidated by his questions, but in no way did he seem arrogant. He simply wanted to make sure that I understood surgery of this type does not always turn out perfectly, and that I was to be aware of potential problems. My surgery was on August 9, 2012. It's now three months later and I have had so many complements about the way I look. I personally feel years younger. During this time period, Dr. Bucko has followed me closely with scheduled appointments . He has always been there for me, and has always answered any questions I might have post-op. Thanks to him, I got everything I wanted, plus more, a caring Dr. whose door to me has never been closed.

I feel compelled to share my positive experience with Dr. Bucko's office, especially after hearing countless negative stories from various friends regarding their disappointment with other places they have been to for plastic surgery, Botox or medical spa type procedures. Dr. Bucko's staff is truly fantastic. Not only are they extremely professional but there is a true sincerity to their care. I have never once felt like I was being overly encouraged to try new things simply to increase the amount of money I would be spending. I have been well informed about what the office has to offer in order to make my own decisions and any questions I have had were always addressed promptly and honestly. The staff has a unique ability to make you feel as if you are their only patient and not just another number and that is very important to me. I personally have been to Dr. Bucko's office for Botox, Dysport and several different facials. Any anxiety or fear regarding these procedures was easily calmed by my personal consultation with the highly trained and experienced staff . I have not regretted anything that I have had done thus far and have never been less than totally satisfied with results. Since I have not had any plastic surgery I am not able to give any personal feedback in that area, however I do have two close friends that had breast augmentation performed by Dr. Bucko and were both extremely pleased with their results.

I first went to Dr Bucko's La Jolla office for a breast augmentation consultation. To my surprise, I actually got to meet with Dr. Bucko. He was so thorough and took his time answering all of my questions. He made me feel completely comfortable and confident in the procedure. I even got to take home a size kit to try different sizes on at home. I could not be happier with the results! The pain management after the procedure was remarkable! I felt great and still could not be happier with the results. Since then I have been a very loyal fan of Dr Bucko and everyone in the La Jolla office. Katy provides amazing facials and doesnt mind spending extra time with you to go over all the details. The office staff is always friendly and incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Dr Bucko.

Dr. Bucko did my breast reduction and a chemical peel. The staff is helpful and professional. Dr. Bucko does not try and push you into procedures you do not want like many doctors I visited before choosing him for my surgery. I continue to get compliments on my new look.
