If you are not satisfied with the size or shape of your nose, our talented board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Summer Black and Dr. Elliott Black, can work closely with you to evaluate the concerning conditions of your nose and create a distinctive treatment plan to cosmetically enhance your nose. Whether the displeasing aesthetics of your nose are from an injury or just genetics, rhinoplasty, or "a nose job" surgery may be right for you. A rhinoplasty is performed by removing, rearranging, or reshaping the bone and cartilage in the nose.
Not only can this type of surgery make your nose gorgeous by removing bumps, improving the angle, and/or reducing the size of your nose, we can also improve a patient's breathing by correcting a deviated septum if needed. Rhinoplasty at Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Metairie, LA can give you a completely new look! Before scheduling the procedure, you will talk in depth with one of our plastic surgeons about your desired appearance, and how we can make it happen. Call and schedule a consultation today.
"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Summer Black, Dr. Elliot Black, and their team are all amazing! They truly care about their patients. Dr. S. Black gave me her honest opinion about the cosmetic procedure I wanted and told me she didn't even think I needed the surgery. This practice does not try to milk money out of their patients like other places. I love her honest opinion, and I also love my results!"- M.H. / Google / Jun 19, 2019
"Dr. Summer Black is absolutely amazing for several reasons. Dr. Black answered all my questions during my consult and took as much time as I needed. She also encouraged me to call or text her personally with any additional questions I may have thought of after my initial consult. We thoroughly discussed what my “goals” were for having the En Bloc Total Capsulectomy. She was very honest and matter of fact about what I could expect from having this procedure. She did not try to sell me on having additional procedures, even though I specifically asked if I need to have a lift with this procedure (which clearly would have been more expensive), but she told me she did not think I needed it. I have complete confidence in Dr. Summer Black and her father (prior to the surgery and even more so now on the other side). They operate as a team which makes me even more confident knowing there are two wonderful plastic surgeons operating on me. Dr. Black took videos and pictures explaining what she found during the procedure. She called me the evening of my surgery to check on me and we communicated for the next two weeks every day or every other day regarding my recovery. The personal care you receive from Dr. Black Plastic Surgery is excellent (exceeded all my expectations). The results of my surgery are amazing and exactly what we had discussed. If I decide to have additional plastic surgery in the future I would absolutely return to her, hands down. Dr. Black also offers dermal fillers. She injected my lips to increase the fullness. I experienced minimal pain and the attention from the staff was impeccable and I love my lips. Thanks Dr. Black, you gave me a new lease on life!"- M.K. / Google / Jun 18, 2019

"I was tired. I was sick. I was tired of being sick and tired. I had food, alcohol and medicine intolerances. I had unexplainable symptoms, arm pain, rashes, joint pain, hair loss, anxiety and heart palpitations. There were times when I wondered if this was all in my head and if I would ever feel “normal” again. I came across Breast Implant Illness symptoms thanks to a friend and immediately knew in my gut, that was the culprit. I researched qualified surgeons that perform explants and kept coming across Dr. Summer Blacks name. I asked around and knew someone that had an explant and Dr. Black was her surgeon as well so I made a consultation. My personal experience with Dr. Black has been beyond excellent. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate so with little hesitation, I scheduled my explant. I have been in the medical field for over 20 years and you don’t meet many doctors that give you their cell phone number much less answer a text within an hour. The surgery center she operates at, Crescent City Hospital, is phenomenal. The staff is attentive and caring. I woke up from surgery and felt great, my arm pain gone and I could take a deep breath. My scarring is minimal and clean. To say the surgery changed my life sounds cliche BUT it really has changed the quality of my life. I’m so glad I listened to my gut. Thank you Dr. Black."- C.A. / Google / Apr 12, 2019
Do I Qualify?
Rhinoplasty surgery is often used to administer several changes. No matter the look of your nose, our team is standing by to address your requests. After years of surgical practice, our board-certified plastic surgeons are able to remedy an array of cosmetic issues:
- Nose size in relation to facial balance
- Nose width at the bridge
- The size and positioning of your nostrils
- The profile of the nose – eliminate visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Eliminate enlarged or bulbous nasal tips
- Address drooping, upturned or hooked noses
- Alter nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
- Remedy nasal asymmetry
- Correct a deviated septum
What to Expect
Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. Each patient's surgical experience will differ due to their individual needs and goals. There are a number of approaches and techniques that can be used during nose surgery. When augmenting the nose, the surgeon can take cartilage from deep within the nose or the cartilage may be harvested from other areas of the body such as the ribs.
Following surgery, patients can expect to have swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes for approximately 2 weeks. Patients will need to keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. This should go away quickly. A lightweight splint will be applied to maintain the shape of your new nose, and will be removed within a week. The area may feel tight and uncomfortable, but that shouldn't last for very long, either.
Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty and may be caused by the splint and nasal packing worn the first few days post-surgery. After removing the splints, patients will be able to see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.
