New Orleans Office Team

Dr. Russell Hendrick, Jr. and Dr. Parker Velargo are the co-owners and co-founders of The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. While Dr. Hendrick focuses on hand and general plastic & reconstructive surgery, Dr. Velargo focuses on plastic and reconstructive surgery within the head and neck. Drs. Hendrick and Velargo have met the rigorous standards to become board-certified diplomates of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, respectively.

Dr. Hendrick and Dr. Velargo are New Orleans natives. After attending Brother Martin High School, LSU, and LSU Medical School in New Orleans together, Drs. Hendrick and Velargo honed in their specialty skills out of state. They are excited to bring their talent back to New Orleans and serve patients of the crescent city.

Dr. Celeste Gary recently joined the practice and is excited to add her years of expertise to the group.
