Surgical Body Procedures in Metairie & New Orleans, LA


Dr. Stephen Eric Metzinger performs a range of liposuction techniques to remove excess fat using only small incisions into the treatment area. In addition to tumescent liposuction, Dr. Metzinger can use vibrations, air suction, ultrasound waves, or lasers to liquefy the fat for easier removal.
Sometimes, healthy nutrition and exercise aren’t enough to firm your abdomen if you have stretched skin or stubborn excess fat from dramatic weight loss or pregnancy. Dr. Metzinger can use abdominoplasty to tighten your underlying tissue and remove unwanted skin and fat from your midsection.


Even if you have lost a substantial amount of weight, you might not feel like your appearance reflects your new healthier lifestyle. Dr. Metzinger offers comprehensive body lifts to help patients with excess skin and fat, and can lift and tighten the groin, thighs, abdomen, or buttocks.


Dr. Metzinger can perform brachioplasty, or arm lift, for patients with drooping skin or stubborn fat on their arms. This can result from weight changes, genetic conditions, or aging. He will make the incision on the underside of your arm to make your scar less noticeable.


Some patients struggle with flabby, flat, or disproportionate buttocks. To correct these conditions, Dr. Metzinger can perform both conventional and Brazilian butt lifts. A more lifted, perky bottom can complement your entire figure.


If you struggle with excess skin or fat on your thighs, Dr. Metzinger can give your legs a more athletic, youthful appearance with a thigh lift. He will individually tailor your surgery, which can refine the inner region of the thigh, the front of your legs, or your upper thigh.


Becoming a mommy means that your body will go through some inevitable changes. However, the effects of these changes can last far beyond pregnancy and the first few years of your child’s life. Many moms find that their body stubbornly refuses to return to the way that it once was, no matter how much they diet or exercise.
