“"My wife and I have both used Dr. Metzinger and we were both extremely happy. If your concern is the final outcome, trust me, you are in great hands. If your concern is the process, he will make you feel comfortable with both his bedside manner as well as his knowledge. We have referred a number of people to him and my wife plans on making a return trip in the near future as well. We wouldn't even consider anyone else." ”Cory Faucheux
We opened our Metairie practice almost two decades ago in 1996. Our office is very close to the causeway with easy access to New Orleans. We are located three blocks from beautiful Lake Pontchartrain. We take several measures to improve your experience while you wait at our comfortable office. For example, our staff provides complimentary hot tea and iced lemon water.
Dr. Metzinger performs a full spectrum of body contouring, facial plastic surgery, and breast enhancement procedures. He uses many sophisticated, customizable techniques to suit your specific needs and preferences. He provides standard, minimal access cranial suspension (MACS), deep-plane, and mini facelifts for patients, depending on the severity of their drooping or wrinkled skin and their desired results. Dr. Metzinger is also skilled at using liposuction for fat grafting, and has written about the topic for an academic publication. During this procedure, he extracts excess fat cells from one part of the body, such as the thighs or upper arms, purifies them, and uses them to enhance another area, like the lips or cheeks. He also offers advanced procedures like a high lateral tension tummy tuck for patients who want to simultaneously firm and smooth their midsection and thighs.
Through our partner spa, Dolce Bellissimo, we provide patients with warm towels, a full line of laser skin treatments, micro needling, and more. Dr. Metzinger also frequently combines less invasive med spa treatments such as chemical peels with plastic surgery for even more beautiful results.
Since many plastic surgery procedures are not covered by health insurance (unless they can be proven to serve a medical purpose, like blepharoplasty for obscured vision), we offer financing options to make our treatments more affordable. We accept CareCredit℠ and Prosper Healthcare Lending to patients who meet the qualifications for these services.
Dr. Metzinger can use his experience and expertise to enhance your appearance with cosmetic plastic surgery, while our warm office atmosphere can make you feel at home. Contact our office today to learn more about our procedures or schedule a consultation with Dr. Metzinger.
