Dr. Costa in a leading facial plastic surgeon with a highly regarded practice in Charleston, SC. His path to facial plastic surgery began as a D.M.D. Because of his special background, Dr. Costa has unique insight into the need for treatment of underlying causes when taking on patients with apparent Microgenia. After receiving his M.D. he completed residencies in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery as well as an extended fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery in 1988.
With his background, Dr. Costa speaks nationally to oral and maxillofacial professionals about the treatment of Microgenia, promoting the use of an implant-based treatment over bone grafting. He cites reduced complications and less time in operation as some key benefits to the procedure. In his own practice, Dr. Costa exclusively uses Surgiform PureForm implants for chin augmentation.
