Dr. Carroll D Bucko has the following 1 specialty
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Dr. Bucko and his staff not only provide expert care, but they make you feel like part of their family. Dr. Bucko is an artist, and that means a lot to me. That he can transfer his artistic talents to his surgical procedures is why, without hesitation, I would return to him for future procedures. I appreciate that he asks many questions to make sure he knows what I want and what my concerns are. He has a great sense of humor, a very good disposition and a wonderfully united staff.
Dr Bucko performed a breast augmentation that resulted in a deformity called a double bubble. When I showed Dr. Bucko and his nurse the results of the surgery and they had no concern what so ever with results of my surgery. I ended up getting consultations with several high profile plastic surgeons who all said the result of the surgery would be extremely difficult to correct due to the damage done. Part of the problem was that I was so thin, and there was not a lot of extra tissue to create a new pocket. It was such a horrible process, I honestly thought I was going to be stuck being deformed forever, because of the slim chance of repairing what Dr. Bucko had done. I wasn't able to wear a bikini or date,... (among other things). The worst part was that Dr. Bucko could have cared less. He was extremely demeaning and condescending and actually went on to tell me it was my fault !!!! because I was 'bleeding all over the place'. As if I could control that. Apparently he thought I did not follow the pre op instructions... but I did. Later I found out he should have done a bleed test prior to surgery. There are so many more details but for the sake of post I'll stop here and just say that: Choosing Dr. Bucko as my surgeon was the biggest mistake of my life!!
Dr. Bucko is the best doctor ever! I first went to him about 20 yrs ago after Iâd had liposuction from another doctor and was really unhappy with the outcome. Dr. Bucko never criticized the other doctor. He just asked me what I was unhappy with. He is very honest about what can and cannot be done. I was so thrilled with the results that Iâve been going to Dr. Bucko ever since. He has done a lower face lift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, tummy tuck and thighplasty over the last 20 yrs. I referred my mom, who is now 80 years old. He did a complete âgrammyâ makeover (complete face/neck lift) and later did a tummy tuck and breast surgery. People think my mom and I are sisters. She looks so young and has never had so much confidence in her life. (She even married an old flame when she was 78) We travel 90 miles to go to Dr. Bucko and would travel even farther if we had to. He is so kind and compassionate and a true perfectionist!! We never feel rushed. He answers all your questions and makes sure you are truly informed. His staff is so courteous and professional. We are so grateful to Dr. Bucko for all he's done.
