dr metzinger

Stephen Eric Metzinger, M.D., M.S.P.H., F.A.C.S. is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Having a profound interest in plastic surgery, Dr. Metzinger chose his training to emphasize this area.

He obtained his undergraduate degree at Tulane University, and received a Master's of Science in Public Health from the Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine. He then completed four years of study at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine, New Orleans. He received multiple honors and was elected to national honor societies, Delta Omega and Alpha Omega Alpha. He then served a two year residency in general surgery at the Carraway Methodist Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama.

Soon after, he pursued training in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans. He then obtained highly specialized fellowship training in Facial Aesthetic Surgery at the prestigious and world-renowned McCollough Aesthetic Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama.

Inspired by his achievements in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Metzinger chose to pursue additional training in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in the Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. He was given the John Staige Davis Resident Research award for his innovative work in plastic surgery. He then completed sub-specialty training at the University of Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery and Microvascular Surgery.

In 1996, he joined the faculty of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans. He was dual-appointed in the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the Department of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery. He developed the basic science laboratory for the Plastic Surgery Division, and served as Director of Resident Research for both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology.

In 2000 he was named Co-Program Director of the Plastic Surgery Residency Training Program. During that period, several important publications and advancements in the field of breast reconstruction with perforator flaps, rhinoplasty, cosmetic eyelid rejuvenation surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, nerve regeneration and minimally invasive cosmetic plastic surgery were developed. With this body of work, Dr. Metzinger has become a renowned and highly respected aesthetic surgeon and has been asked to lecture and teach his techniques locally, nationally, and internationally.

Dr. Metzinger is Triple Board Certified in Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Metzinger is a Clinical Associate Professor at Tulane University Health Sciences Center, Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Metzinger's major areas of interests are cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, nose, breast and body.

Dr. Metzinger is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), American Association of Plastic Surgery (AAPS), and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons (ASMS) and the Rhinoplasty Society.
