Comprehensive Enhancement

Whether it is with a single procedure or combined procedures, Dr. Cooper provides natural-looking enhancement that achieves her patients’ specific goals. Dr. Cooper performs a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures to improve balance or achieve a more youthful look. Some of her more popular options include:

  • Facelifts – Dr. Cooper uses the short scar technique, which helps minimize scarring for her New Orleans facelift patients. This procedure improves facial skin and tissue sagging while smoothing out wrinkles and deep creases on the lower portion of the face.
  • Eyelid Surgery – This procedure can be performed for the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both areas to eliminate excess skin, puffy bags and wrinkles. The result is a refreshed and reinvigorated appearance.

Many men and women choose Dr. Cooper to transform their body. She can make the small refinements or sweeping changes necessary to give her body contouring patients a look they love.

  • Abdominoplasty – Most commonly known as a tummy tuck, this procedure tightens the abdominal muscles and removes loose skin and fat tissue to create greater definition in the midsection. It’s a particularly popular option for moms and people who have lost a lot of weight.
  • Liposuction – The most well-known body contouring procedure, liposuction is offered by many providers in the New Orleans area, but Dr. Cooper’s level of skill and experience allows her to provide the utmost safety and beautiful results for her patients. Slim your arms, chest, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs or knees with liposuction.

Beautiful, full, shapely and perky breasts are possible with breast enhancement procedures from Dr. Cooper.

  • Breast Enlargement – Many women boost their confidence with breast enlargement. Dr. Cooper will help you select from saline or silicone gel breast implants and review your other surgical options well before your procedure so that you feel confident about your surgical outcome and new look.
  • Breast Reduction – Women in New Orleans are choosing breast reductions for many reasons, including increased comfort and better overall body proportions. Almost every woman who has this procedure remarks that she should have done it sooner.
  • Breast Lift – When Dr. Cooper performs a breast lift, it’s about more than just lifting the breasts – she pays special attention to creating a perky and pleasing breast shape. Many women combine their lift with augmentation.

In addition to the plastic surgery procedures that Dr. Cooper performs, she offers a variety of non- surgical treatments that promote healthy, youthful skin. These include chemical peels, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, Sculptra®, and physician-strength skin care products.

Patient Testimonials

After searching for several months for the right surgeon, I found Dr. Cooper. From the moment I met her and her staff, I knew I had made the right decision. Dr. Cooper walked me through each step, before and after surgery. After talking to several other women who have had the same surgery, I soon realized just how great of a job Dr. Cooper did.

During an appointment with my gynecologist, about four months after surgery, she praised Dr. Cooper’s work. For any future cosmetic needs, I will choose Dr. Cooper.

I have had three procedures with Dr. Cooper and absolutely love the results. Dr. Cooper truly cares about you as a person; she is extremely professional I would recommend her to anyone looking for a life change.

I consulted with several cosmetic surgeons before I found Dr. Cooper. Once meeting with Dr. Cooper and her staff I knew I didn’t need to look any further. Dr. Cooper was very considerate and informative. My surgery went great. I couldn’t have asked for better results. If I consider cosmetic surgery in the future Dr. Cooper will definitely be my choice.

I found Dr. Cooper and her staff both professional and caring. Dr. Cooper is truly an artist at her work. Very happy with natural looking results.

I highly recommend Dr. Cooper. She is a great Doctor who is also very personable and attentive to her patients. She has a wonderful and helpful staff. Her office is a very comfortable and home like atmosphere. I have sent my Mother and my Aunt to her also. They are now patients and love her too.

My experience with Dr. Cooper and her staff was the most unique experience I’ve ever had with any doctor. I was able to reach her when I needed to. She was very patient and understanding with me as well as my husband who was my care giver post surgery. I knew I was in good hands. Her office is such a relaxing atmosphere and her staff is just wonderful. I have and will continue to refer anyone considering any cosmetic procedure to Dr. Cooper.

Dr. Cooper and her staff exceeded my expectations. All of my questions and concerns were handled in a professional manner. I am pleased with the results of my procedure and would highly recommend Dr. Cooper.

I first came to see Dr. Cooper back in February of 2007. From the very first day, Dr. Cooper made me feel extremely comfortable. She answered all my questions, concerns and gave me all the information needed to make my decision. I was a small B and ended up with a small D. Dr. Cooper help me decide on the right size for me with my type of body frame. She did an excellent job and the outcome was better than I thought. With the surgery, my self esteem has gone up. Overall the experience at Dr. Cooper’s office, along with the staff and the surgery went absolutely fantastic. I even recommended Dr. Cooper to my best friend who has currently gone for a consultation.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cooper! I would highly recommend her to everyone!! When I had an issue she was very quick to respond and correct that issue! She is very one on one and treats you like a person and not just another patient! I told her what I was looking for, she told me what I needed and my procedure came out perfect! I am very satisfied with my results! Thank you Dr. Cooper

Michele Cooper, MD and her staff were exceptionally helpful and receptive. My experience was wonderful. Michele and her staff were easy to communicate with and always available which gave me the comfort and confidence I needed to make decisions.

Dr. Cooper is a great physician and I am very pleased with my results. My ob-gyn did a breast exam and had to take a closer look to realize that I had a breast reduction. He asked who was my surgeon and said how fantastic of a job she did. I felt great it was a compliment for the both of us. I went into her office dying for my breast to be smaller by any means. I was tired of feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin. I didn’t care what the scarring would look like I just wanted smaller! Dr. Cooper made them smaller and my scars are virtually unnoticeable. It’s been 20 months since and still no sagging. I love the fact that I can wear swimsuits without a bra underneath for support. I feel normal again. Thanks Dr. Cooper!

I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery. After years of trying to get rid of the C-section bulge, I finally decided to take the necessary steps to have a flat stomach. I also decided to have breast augmentation. I fell great and more confident. I am very impressed with Dr. Coopers’ surgical skills. She also was completely accessible and available for questions or concerns before and after the procedure. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Cooper. In fact, one of my good friends was so impressed; she had a procedure with Dr. Cooper.
