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.

"Restylane Review - Metairie, LA - Dr. Black is the best in her industry. I feel confident that she will not "over-do" any procedure. She has before told me that certain procedures were not necessary and I always take her advice. She is a true professional. - - I have a very large scar on my face from an accident and is very painful. Dr. Black filled in the scar, broke up scar-tissue. My scar is less noticeable which makes me feel much more confident. She also filled in my lips and I'm so pleased with the outcome...she didn't over-do my lips, they look very natural. I also had her fill in my nose at the tip on the side and it looks amazing."- L. / RealSelf / Jul 13, 2016
"Rhinoplasty Proud ! - Metairie, LA - Rhinoplasty was something I pondered getting ever sense I was old enough to look in the mirror . I was always so unhappy with my appreance . I had a very large "hump" on my nose , that was most noticeable from my side profile . Extremely nervous , I took a chance and walked into Dr Elliot Blacks office . I heard from several different people that I could not go wrong with choosing him for my surgery ! The first thing he said to me when I walked in was " you'd be be beautiful with or without this procedure " I never once felt pressured into doing something I didn't want to do. He never tried talking me into other procedures that would enhance my rhinoplasty . I felt completely comfortable leaving his office that day. He sat down with me and drew pictures , and explained the surgery start to finish And assured me no surprises ! I scheduled my surgery date the following week ! The only thing I regret about having a rhinoplasty was waiting as long as I did . I had zero to very minimal discomfort after the procedure . He checked on me every single day , just to make sure I was healing okay! A week later , the cast that was placed after the surgery was removed . Still had some minor bruising but nothing a little makeup couldn't hide ! I was back to work a few days later ! Since my surgery my confidence has gone up a million percent ! I would choose Dr Elliot Black , and Dr Summer Black for any cosmetic procedure in the future . I highly recommend them ! No doubt in my mind you'll be satisfied with your results !"- E. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2017
"Through a recommendation my attention was drawn to the work of Doctor Black, which is why I decided to travel all the way from Germany to get my facelift done by him. I couldn't be happier about my decision! Throughout my stay in the clinic I always felt like everyone took great care of my individual needs and interests. The result of my surgery is by far better than I would have ever expected. The wish to get a facelift that would make me look naturally younger but still like myself came out great. I came to him with the purpose of looking and feeling better about myself and he absolutely made that happen. I can recommend Doctor Black to everyone who wants to get a plastic surgery done."- G. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019
"In 2003, I had gastric bypass surgery. I lost about 100 pounds. Gravity has taken it’s toll over the last few years. From extensive research and recommendations from a dear and trusted friend, I went to the Drs.Black to perform my facelift. I CANNOT say enough good things about Dr. Elliott and Dr. Summer or their staff ( Patty and Wade)! I don’t look like I’ve been caught in a wind tunnel! My neck no longer has a turkey waddle, and my eyes are actually opened up to see the world! I’ve been so pleased that I’m taking the next scary steps to have a breast reduction/ lift and a tummy tuck . I trusted these talented surgeons with my face and I am confident to have them perform this upcoming surgery! Trusting anyone with my “Face” that meets the world is a pretty big deal! I recommend this practice highly! I’m their biggest cheerleader! Call them! You won’t be sorry!"- V. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 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.
