View our Plastic Surgery Before and After Gallery >
Dr. R. Daniel Jacob will now be seeing his ENT patients at Ochsner Baptist (504-897-4455, map). He is referring his New Faces patients for surgical and non surgical cosmetic procedures to his son, Dr. Christian Jacob, who is fellowship trained and double board certified in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Dr. Dan Jacob has lived in New Orleans for more than 40 years. He grew up in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane as an undergraduate. After graduating from Tulane University School of Medicine, he served five years in the U.S. Navy and returned to complete his residency at L.S.U. He opened his private practice in facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology in Metairie in 1985.

Dr. Jacob is board certified to perform both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) / Head and Neck Surgery. For the past 25 years he has performed surgery exclusively on the face, neck, and head.

Committed to the highest level of patient care, Dr. Jacob believes every patient deserves consideration and compassion. When you come into our New Orleans-area facial plastic surgery office for a consultation, Dr. Jacob listens to you, assesses your needs, helps you set realistic appearance goals, and discusses how to attain them. As a board-certified surgeon, he has a trained eye to determine what you need and the expertise to achieve the natural look you want.

“I enjoy the challenges of private practice, including the exacting nature of facial plastic surgery. It is a joy to be able to make another person feel better about himself. And through my work with Tulane and LSU medical schools, I have the distinct privilege of helping train our next generation of physicians.”

In 2002, Dr. Jacob co-founded the New Orleans Medical Mission Services Foundation (NOMMS) and since has organized surgical medical missions throughout Central and South America. “In providing care for these extremely impoverished people, I have learned the true meaning of ‘It is better to give than receive.’ ”

Dr. Jacob has been at Hedgewood since 2014. Not only did he complete the standard one-year fellowship with Dr. Johnson, but he also had the distinct opportunity of continuing to operate and see patients with Dr. Johnson for an additional two years afterwards. Not one person has spent nearly as much time operating so closely with Dr. Johnson. After this extended and truly unique training, Dr. Johnson, a world-renowned master in the field of rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation, recognized Dr. Jacob’s skill and bed-side manner as he asked him to continue his practice at Hedgewood.

Dr. Jacob is double board certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He has given multiple talks about rhinoplasty and neck rejuvenation at prestigious national and international conferences. Through New Orleans Medical Mission Services, Dr. Jacob has attended multiple medical missions to Central America where he served as a reconstructive facial plastic surgeon. He remains active in the education of local residents and fellows interested in facial plastic surgery. His interests include guitar, gardening, life drawing, an oil painting. Dr. Jacob studies at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts.

Dr. Jacob has the aesthetic sense and skill to create a natural, refreshed appearance for his cosmetic patients. During the consultation process, he will take the time to show you how a balanced, individualized approach can best suit you.
