Are you interested in a body transformation, outside of your daily/weekly workout at the gym? Looking to enhance your look? Well, we have just the right person for you!
Representing New Orleans, LA, Nicholas Jones, MD, FACS, is a Plastic Surgeon by day and Community Advocate forever! Nicholas has a daily motivation of the continual search for that “sweet spot,” by being himself and doing the things he love.
So what made Nicholas interested in being as a Plastic Surgeon? Nicholas tells us that his mother and pediatrician always told him that he would be a doctor, and he started to believe it!! Nicholas entered medical school with plans on being a plastic surgeon. His understanding of the field was very superficial, but once he was exposed to it, he knew it was for me.
“I always knew I wanted to be a plastic surgeon, but it did not become my passion until I realized how impactful plastic surgery was as a specialty. Plastic surgery is much more than “boob jobs” and “facelifts.” It’s the only specialty that I know of in which you can operate on any part of the body, take a deformity and restore function and form. I became passionate about plastic surgery through my care for breast cancer patients.”
Nicholas completed his plastic surgery training at the Medical College of Georgia, and tells us that there are two tracks to becoming a Plastic Surgeon: traditional track and an integrated program. The traditional track requires training in a surgical specialty (general surgery, otolaryngology, urology) and is followed by 3 years of training in plastic surgery. The integrated program matches you directly into plastic surgery from medical school, and complete two years of surgery training and three years of plastic surgery.
Nicholas has been a Plastic Surgeon for 4 years and specializes in Cosmetic Surgery. He has worked with over 1,000 clients and does breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, tummy tucks, Botox, fillers, Brazilian butt lifts, liposuction, eyelid surgery, and treatment of keloids.
In the beginning of his career, Nicholas faced a few difficulties that were short lived. Nicholas tells us that as a surgery resident, he applied for plastic surgery fellowship and on the first go round, he did not match into a program. Nicholas says that it was a humbling experience.
“I had cruised through college, finished medical school, and I thought I had done enough to successfully match. So, I regrouped, beefed up my application and more importantly, I gained a couple of mentors; One, was the chief of plastic surgery at a prestigious institution and the other was practicing plastic surgeon. Along with my mother’s prayers of course, everything fell into place. Amen!”
Although Brazilian butt lifts are the most requested procedure, Nicholas states that he really enjoys doing tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, facial fillers!
“With fillers, you can see the finishing results almost immediately and so can the patients. As far as surgeries go, I would say abdominoplasties (tummy tucks) because the changes are so drastic!”
Though Nicholas has worked with many clients, there are clients that he has been unable to work with. This may be due to uncontrolled medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, recent stroke, etc.
“Patient is a poor surgical candidate. Some patients have unrealistic expectations and if I do not feel I can get them the results they desire, I will turn them down. I try to find a happy medium; first and foremost, I have to make sure it is a safe to perform a surgery on a prospective patient.”
His greatness has also been seen outside of his practice, as he has made a guest appearance on Rickey Smiley Morning Show! He is also a Freshman Coach at Decatur High School, lead a song at First Baptist Church as a member of the gospel choir, and is a Board member of Susan G Komen! (AMAZING!) Not only does Nicholas love his profession, he enjoys weight training, sporting events, basketball coaching, travel, mentoring, writing, fine dining, and playing golf! (NICE!!)
