our why

Beth’s guidance and leadership established us as the practice we are today. Her youngest child was born with a cleft lip and palate, which in many places can mean a lifelong sentence of deformity. Luckily, Beth and her son met with a surgeon who developed a plan that involved a series of surgeries spread out over the course of several years. Beth saw her son blossom and grow as he transformed, and he still continues on his journey to this day.

Beth is so very thankful for the skills of Dr. Costello and others like him. That is why a percentage of all The Face Loft®️️ proceeds are donated to The American Cleft Palate Association. The American Cleft Palate Association is a highly reputable medical organization that, in addition to developing quality of care standards for Americans, has international treatment programs providing care to different regions of the world.

When we look better, we feel better; and hopefully, we do better. We’re immensely proud to help patients of all walks of life achieve their goals and dreams by reaching their full potential. We know firsthand the transformative power of properly provided aesthetic medicine, and we want to bring that to everyone who needs it and wants to love the skin they’re in in and around the greater Pittsburgh area.
