He literally gave me my life back! I have been battling fibromyalgia for 10 yrs. I had to quit my job as a respiratory therapist & get on disability. My marriage of 22 yrs ended. I was with my mom at her appt with Dr Metzinger, & we just started chatting about implants.When I told him that I had mine since 1995, he peered at me over his glasses & educated me on the warranties back then & showed me pics of contaminated implants! He & his staff were so courteous & informative.Now I'm LIVING again!

Dr. Metzinger performed an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation for me with absolutely beautiful results. I could not be more pleased. He is an incredible plastic surgeon and his staff is fabulous as well. They are professional, friendly, and caring.

I had a cyst on my neck and had to have cut out. Dr. Metzinger made sure I came back after stiches dissolved a third time to make sure everything was fine. Very impressed with the fact that he took the time to make sure several months later it went well. I would highly recommend Dr. Met zinger.:)
in Lockport, La |
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Metzinger for your surgery needs! His staff and himself have been super professional and super nice. From the minute I walked through the door I have been treated like their top priority. Dr. Metzinger spends plenty of time with me and always asks me many many times throughout my visits if I have any questions. He does not walk in the door and is out the door in five minutes like most doctors. He is not about making money either, he cares about his patients health.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Metzinger says..

We provide a full suite of facial plastic surgery, body contouring, and breast enhancement procedures to meet all of your cosmetic plastic surgery needs. If you want to diminish wrinkles on the brow, Dr. Metzinger may recommend a brow lift, which he can perform using some of the latest endoscopic technologies for minimal scarring and excellent results. He can also help brighten your eyes and improve your vision with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to reduce sagging and wrinkles. He has even published a scholarly article describing new techniques for this type of surgery. We also use five different types of liposuction to remove unwanted fat tissue, which we can then purify and use to augment other areas of your body. Women who want a more youthful, perky bosom can benefit from a breast lift, which may be combined with breast augmentation or reduction for a more proportional figure. Facelifting is state-of-the art!

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.

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.
