Dr. Parker Velargo and Dr. Russell Hendrick, Jr. are the co-owners and co-founders of The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. Each surgeon has their respective specialty. While Dr. Hendrick focuses on cosmetic and general reconstructive surgery of the body and hands, Dr. Velargo focuses on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for the head and neck. As a testament to their skill and experience as physicians, both our plastic surgeons’ work has been featured in the media and published in renowned medical journals countless times. In addition to their impressive careers, both doctors have gained stellar reputations in their community; they have an incredible dedication to improving how each patient feels about themselves by producing natural results in their cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.



If you are near your target weight but still self-conscious about fat deposits in your thighs, upper arms, abdomen, back, or buttocks that won’t shrink despite diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. This is an innovative technology that permanently removes fat cells from specific areas of your body without the need for surgery.

This safe, non-invasive technology uses carefully controlled cooling to kill fat cells. In the weeks after the treatment, your body naturally flushes out the dead fat cells for good. There is no downtime after CoolSculpting, and the results are long lasting when paired with a healthy lifestyle. Discover slimmer, sleeker body contours with this FDA-cleared technique.
