Care Philosophy

The ideal aesthetic result brings the undesirable feature into a reasonable proportional balance to the rest of the face, the feature itself, e.g. the nose, and the patient's overall size and age. Modern techniques should allow for a minimum of post-operative swelling, bruising,& pain. The easiest to appreciate is the lack of nasal packing after rhinoplasty.

Patient Comments (1)
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Unsuccessfully did my daughter's rhinoplasty. Is very very rude and demeaning. Always says that he and a "doctor friend in New Orleans" are the only ones who can do rhinoplasty. Cannot get in touch with him if emergency bc he said he can't answer his cell phone after hours. After one year, I have to get my daughter's rhinoplasty corrected because LaNasa didn't secure the tip. It is literally starting to fall downward. I should've seen this when there were no patients in his office except for us
