Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to relax in our elegant waiting area. Instead, we ask that you wait in your car in the convenient on-premises parking. We will call you when it is time to enter through the front or back door. We are spacing people appropriately so that there will be little to no waiting time. You will not need to use an elevator or come into contact with anyone except our staff who are always wearing appropriate PPE and following strict hand-washing routines.

There is a station for you to grab a mask and sanitize immediately upon entering the facility. All of the furniture in patient rooms has been replaced with chairs that can be sanitized every time between patients.

I personally trained both of them and would without reservation trust either to operate on any friend or family member. Having trained over thirty fellows, I know with confidence that these two exceptional surgeons will continue to produce the natural aesthetic results that defined my career. Thank you for your loyalty over the years.

Moulthrop and Jacob are located on the first floor of a restored Victorian residence on St. Charles Avenue overlooking the Garden District of New Orleans.

We are proud to support and display the work of local artists throughout our clinic space. The entrance to the clinic is the the front door on St. Charles Avenue. There is ample parking available in the attached private parking lot.

Johnson, Moulthrop and Jacob to evaluate what course of action is best for each person. They believe it is important to understand the most pressing concerns of the patient. Two important components of this preoperative understanding are photographic analysis and the mirror examination. Our doctors utilize digital photographs at a variety of angles to enable patients to visualize their own faces more objectively.

Their meticulous and artistic approach is based on years of experience. The first and foremost goal is to achieve a result that appears as natural as possible. It is far better for prospective patients to remain as they are than to undergo surgical procedures that leave them with an unnatural or "operated on" appearance. The best cosmetic surgery does not draw attention to itself and does not say to the observer "something is not right here."

Skin care is an important part of this process and our doctors are happy to help you develop a program that is tailored to your needs. Skin treatments are also provided such as neuromodulators for fine wrinkles and laser treatments for both wrinkles and skin tone. It is important to address continuing volume loss that we all experience with aging - this can be addressed with volumizing treatments with injectable agents such as hyaluronic acid that will restore a youthful look.

We recommend Ester-C which is buffered and therefore easier on your GI system. Your labs and clearance(s) need to be completed and faxed prior to your pre-operative appointment. At this appointment we will obtain the consents and explain the pre- and post-operative care. In addition, all prescriptions necessary will be given to you.

This can be discontinued the third day after surgery i.e. Do not pick at any incisions as this can cause bleeding and inadvertently loosen the fine stitches. If nasal surgery is performed, apply antibiotic ointment on the external incisions and inside the nostrils with a Q-tip twice daily. Use saline rinses several times per day for the first two weeks. Intra-nasal mucosa is commonly swollen after surgery which can make it difficult to breathe through the nose.
