Appearance undeniably plays a big role in our lives. Every day we look in the mirror as we prepare ourselves for the day ahead. For some, the reflection can reveal premature signs of aging, birth defects, or simply a feature that we are not happy with. Despite our best efforts pursuing a good diet and exercise the aging process marches on taking a toll on our features. You may have heard Billy Crystal's famous quote in his role as Fernando Lamas on Saturday Night Live, "It is better to look good than to feel good!" My philosophy, however, is somewhat different in this regard as I am convinced by the feedback from multitudes of patients that in fact if you look good you WILL feel good.
The decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure is a very personal choice, and the reasons are as unique as the individual. As a Louisiana facial plastic surgeon, my goal is to help my patients become comfortable with the process and assist them in making informed decisions whether they are enhancing features or correcting imperfections. My patients frequently inquire about what kind of procedure to have, be it as involved as a facelift or something as simple and quick as Botox, New Orleans residents who are considering facial plastic surgery know that I am a knowledgeable resource on which they can rely when choosing a procedure.
From minimally invasive treatments like Botox or Dysport, to in depth surgical procedures like rhinoplasty and, our patients know that as a double board certified New Orleans facial plastic surgeon, I will provide them with a level of care that is second to none. All of us here at Ochsner are committed to providing the very best in care and support for our patients by educating them and tailoring their treatment to meet their individual needs.
