Dr. Coscia began practicing at The Plastic Surgery Center in 2012 as a cosmetic fellow. He quickly earned the respect and praise of the senior surgeons and was asked to join the group in 2013. Dr. Coscia has developed a reputation of having superb surgical skills and a wonderful demeanor. Dr. Coscia is also board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Coscia received his medical degree in his hometown of Memphis at the University of Tennessee. There he had the unique opportunity to work in the trauma department as a suture tech. The experience of caring for trauma patients and working to correct severe traumatic facial injuries sparked his initial interest in plastic surgery. Visualizing the problem and working to obtain the desired results was exciting and rewarding. During medical school he was selected for membership in Alpha Omega Alpha, an honor reserved for the top students.
