Christian D. Jacob, MD

Christian D. Jacob, M.D. was born and raised in the New Orleans area. After attending Jesuit High School, he received his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine degrees from Tulane University. Following a five year residency in the Tulane Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, he completed a coveted fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery under the tutelage of Dr. Calvin Johnson.

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, and oil painting. Dr. Jacob studies at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and is proud to display select works by his teachers throughout the Hedgewood clinic space.

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.
