I come to Dr Walters for all of my cosmetic procedures. He was very good at explaining my rhinoplasty and listening to my vision of my dream nose and he was able to give me just that! At three months my results look nearly identical to the 3D images that he took. I couldn't have dreamed of better results!!

Amazing Doctor! - Dr Walters is by far the best plastic surgeon I’ve ever encountered. His professionalism is impeccable and since meeting him in 2015, I haven’t seen another plastic surgeon. I live in Europe, but schedule my filler treatments around my trips to the states. My mother is also a patient of his and received a facelift, 2 years ago, and still looks beautiful. When it comes to my fillers and Botox, he consults and advises. He always assures that I am satisfied with my results. I will never visit another surgeon again.

Amazing rhinoplasty experience! - I had an amazing rhinoplasty experience with Dr. Walters. Dr. Walters and his staff made sure my experience went as smoothly as possible. It hasn’t even been an entire year since my surgery and I am already very pleased with my results. My only regret is not doing it sooner! My nose looks very natural and Dr. Walters was able to fix the things that made me insecure while still leaving me look like myself. I would recommend him to anyone!

Happy Face - Metairie, LA - I wanted to look more youthful and less tired. A friend had work done by Dr. Walters and looked marvelous. I immediately made an appointment. At the appointment i discussed what i wanted to have done. I wanted fuller lips and high cheek bones and Dr. Walters suggested what was an alternative to a facelift. When he completed injecting filler into my lips and cheeks I immediately saw an improvement and i am more than happy with the changes. I love my "new" look

Nose surgery is performed while the patient is under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is in most cases an outpatient procedure. This treatment offers different surgical methods depending on the unique cosmetic goals of the patient. Dr. Walters performs rhinoplasty using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach. The objective during the procedure is to decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to build and increase cartilage if necessary for reconstruction. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is draped over the newly structured framework. Stitches are positioned either on the inside portion of the nose or within the natural external fold.

Upon completion of your cosmetic nose surgery, you will rest comfortably in the recovery section, and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. The nose and the surrounding area will be swollen, bruised, and sore for the first few days. In almost all patients, there is some discoloration beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Consistently using cold compresses and inflammatory medications can assist with these effects. Your post-op check-up with Dr. Walters will be scheduled 1 week after surgery to assess your healing progress. It takes around 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. Within this timeframe, strenuous exertion should be avoided.
