fellowship training makes Dr. Melancon one of the leading experts in facial plastic surgery, to which she adds
her uniquely female perspective. She uses these impressive skills to address all aspects of facial
rejuvenation, restoration, and reconstruction, along with difficult revision cases, by creating detailed
surgical plans to care for her patients from the initial consultation to the post-surgical recovery.

She enjoys sharing her love of art, food, travel, New Orleans, and holistic wellness with her patients.
The nuances of our expressions and the tiny details that make
up our natural beauty leave a lasting impression on the people we meet. Beauty is loving yourself. I love
being able to help my patients align their physical features with who they know themselves to be on the
inside. It’s truly a gift to be a part of that transformation.

Dr. Melancon works closely with her patients to help them find their perfect look.
More than almost any other plastic surgery procedure, rhinoplasty can make you look like a completely different person.
If you have a bad experience with your initial surgery, that new person may be one you don’t recognize. Revision rhinoplasty in New Orleans with Dr. Claire Melancon can correct that awful feeling and give you the nose you thought you were getting the first time.

It can also affect your breathing, your sleep, and your energy levels. At Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery In New Orleans, Broken Nose Surgery is a holistic treatment. Dr. Claire Melancon provides in-depth treatment plans that will help you prepare for your surgery and recover quickly.
If you always thought you would look better with a different nose but are nervous about having permanent surgery to correct it.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty might be a solution. Also known as liquid rhinoplasty, New Orleans Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Claire Melancon can use dermal fillers to add volume to the nose, changing its shape and appearance in a striking way (without being permanent).

Are you tired of looking at your eyebrows without having to use a mirror? In New Orleans, brow lift procedures performed by Dr. Claire Melancon get your eyebrows back where they belong, helping you look awake and well-rested.
