Several years ago, in preparation for a planned facelift, I began visiting surgeons in the area looking for "the right one". I think I met just about all of the local surgeons, then I found Dr. Metzinger, he was recommended by 2 other doctors actually. I got botox the first visit, fillers here and there, and many, many microdermabrasions (thank you Norma - you're my hero). That was 7 years ago! And while I still plan to get that facelift, for now my skin looks great! I've met (and some I even know very well) Dr. Metzinger's patients and the results are natural looking and they look great many years after their surgeries. Dr. Metzinger will give you options, do great follow-up, his staff is great, the office is beautiful, the patients are happy. Feels like a family, I've even met his mom and dad.See MoreRead Less"

After I decided that my family was complete, I decided to enhance my putter appearance. After months of research online, I finally decided to make a consultation with Dr. Metzinger. When I stepped foot in the office for the first time, I knew I had made the right decision. I proceeded with my consultation. I got to meet him and his staff where I was welcomed with open arms. I felt very welcomed and comfortable with everyone. I felt so confident I found the right place, that I scheduled my surgery before I left. I have gotten to know Dr. Metzinger and his staff more. I was so pleased with his work, I even decided to do another procedure. Without hesitation, I called Dr. Metzinger for another consultation. I would recommend Dr. Metzinger to anyone that is looking for any plastic surgery to be done.See MoreRead Less"

I am a surgical nurse who worked with Dr. Metzinger for several years in a facility that specialized in cosmetic surgery procedures. I worked with many plastic surgeons and was in a position to observe their surgical technique, outcomes, and interactions with patients. I was particluarly impressed Dr. Metzinger's skills in these and all areas. His engaging personality immediately puts patients at ease which allows a very open dialogue about expectations and achievable results. I found his patients to be very well informed about all aspects of their surgery. Dr. Metzinger's clinical judgement is impeccable and his surgical technique is flawless, resulting in absolutely outstanding results for his patients. I cannot recommend Dr. Metzinger highly enough.See MoreRead Less"

Dr. Stephen Metzinger is the best doctor I have ever known. His expertise and level of thoroughness with his patients is truly amazing. He is a doctor that you can trust with any level of medical care. He does not leave anything unturned and all options are open with aesthetic surgery. He is a person that will make you feel at ease, when looking at reconstructive surgery. It is hard in these times to find a doctor with such high integrity and that will be honest with his patients. Whether you are thinking about a small procedure, major aesthetic surgery or just really want a helpful opinion regarding your options, Dr. Stephen Metzinger is your doctor to visit. He has a wonderful, friendly, helpful Office Staff as well.See MoreRead Less"

After the decision that I won't be having any more children, I decided I wanted a little help on my appearance. I researched for months before I decided to make a consultation with Dr. Metzinger. From the moment I stepped in his office, I knew I made the right decision. His staff was amazing. I felt very welcomed and comfortable. I left that day with my surgery scheduled. I have gotten to know Dr. Metzinger and his staff more and no doubt in my mind they were the best there is. I even decided on a second procedure and called his office immediately. Every time I get asked about my procedures, I always recommend Dr. Metzinger.See MoreRead Less"

Miranda Webb, Esthetician / Owner Timeless Beauty Day Spa

I am an Esthetician in the local Metairie area, and have worked with Dr. Metzinger on several occasions and have truly been impressed with his techniques, bed side manner, and his insistence on professionalism as well as proper protocol in medical settings. He has additionally administered Botox and Dermal fillers to me personally and did such a beautiful job. I would trust him to help me with my Aesthetic needs and have additionally referred patients to him from my own Day Spa. There should be more like him! Thank you Dr. Metzinger keep up the good work!See MoreRead Less"

As an assistant to Dr. Metzinger in the operating room, I feel so confidant in his work, that I would trust my face and/or body with him. I suggest him to other people when they question me about my knowledge with Botox, fillers and the more invasive approach, surgery. I've watched women and men blossom after just a simple swipe of a syringe or scalpel. Dr. Metzinger makes his patients feel comfortable and he breaks the procedure and post-op down so there is no confusion on what to expect. He's funny, approachable, knowledgeable and great at what he does!See MoreRead Less"

Dr Metzinger one of the first plastic surgeon that i had the pleasure of working with in surgery. One of the greatest experiences I have ever had. He is a great mentor and instructor. He took his time and explain the procedures and the approach he was preparing to take on each case i was able to work with him on. He explains the same to his patients.
I loved and enjoyed working time with him.
Thank you Doc for the wonderful first experiences and many lessons learned.

Dr. Metzinger is a fabulous plastic sugeon! From helping smalll children with horrific dog bite injuries to their faces to the more mundane tasks (such as helping me to a quick recovery following a nasty, very large and poisonous jellyfish bite which covered half of my thigh), he is head and shoulders above others as a plastic surgeon. We are fortunate to have someone as skilled, competent and compassionate to his patients as Dr. Metzinger in the New Orleans area! -Perrin RomeSee MoreRead Less"

Dr. Metzinger was a warm and truly understanding doctor. He not only addressed my concerns but he also spoke to me with a warm heart. Having a doctor that listens to what your feelings are and helps you understand the process is one that I will continue too see for more procedures if needed. I highly recommend this doctor for several reasons: great bedside manner, extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise, soft and warm heart, and fantastic results!!!!See MoreRead Less"

As a RN, I am very selective of the healthcare providers I choose for myself and my family. Over the past 3 years, I have found Dr. Metzinger to be one of the most knowledgable and considerate physicians I have chosen. He takes extra time to discuss client's concerns, as well as offering several options including the most up-to-date procedures. Scheduling appointments has always been easy and his staff is consistently helpful and pleasant.See MoreRead Less"
