It’s why she chose to study with world-renowned expert facial plastic surgeon Dr. Russell Kridel, learning the intricacies of restoring even the most challenging facial issues. This exclusive 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.

Revision Rhinoplasty

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.

NonsurgicalRhinoplasty

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).

Connected Care

Holistic Plastic Surgery Recovery in New Orleans

Far too often, people think of plastic surgery as a single event. See wrinkles. Get a facelift. The end.

However, Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery sees things a little differently. We look at beauty holistically. Pre-operatively, depending on the type of surgery you are going to undergo, you will be recommended a regimen to decrease swelling and maximize healing. A personalized plan based on your unique needs will be created in order to give you the best results possible!

As part of her role as a holistic facial plastic surgeon in New Orleans, Dr. Claire Melancon researches innovative and alternative treatment methods and integrates the most promising ones into her surgery plans. In many cases, she also can help identify lifestyle changes that can help preserve and extend the results of your surgery.

At Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery, our goal is to help our patients live beautiful lives.

Facelift

There will be a time in your life when the skin on your face begins to lose its elasticity. Plastic surgeons refer to this condition as skin laxity. A facelift in New Orleans from Dr. Claire Melancon focuses on restoring your face in a natural, beautiful way by removing excess tissue around the face. Her unmatched techniques restore a firmer, more youthful, and more defined face and jawline.

Browlift

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. This procedure also helps with wrinkles because your facial muscles subconsciously compensate for low eyebrows by lifting them (and creasing your forehead over time).

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is also known as “eyelid surgery” or an “eyelid lift.” It’s commonly referred to by the lid being operated on, so you can have upper or lower blepharoplasty (or both). Dr. Claire Melancon makes sure the eyelid surgeries she performs take into account your overall health and look, making sure your results appear natural and keep you looking like yourself.

Submental Liposuction

Just because it’s Fat Tuesday doesn’t mean you have to show up with a double chin. At Audubon Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, submental liposuction by Dr. Claire Melancon can remove stubborn fat from beneath the chin, resulting in a more defined jawline. The procedure is minimally invasive, meaning you can lose the fat without losing a lot of time to recovery.
